I feel guilty for abandoning this space so often, yet I always look forward to the 1st December where I motivate myself to return here and write.
Writing has always been something I love doing, I loved keeping a journal when I was young, I suggest it to many people who are going through a tough time, yet I find myself not having time to just sit down and journal these days. So maybe as I suggest it to others, and I know its benefits, I should try to find and make time for it.
However, this is a beauty blog where I used to come and write reviews, share my videos, share outfits, however, since we started the month of December, Blogmas is here.
I have a list of posts I can write, some are classic and some may be new, some might not be related to christmas because even though its here, this year Christmas is totally different. The world is different.
The pandemic has changed our everyday lives, I hope that wherever you are reading this from, you are taking care and staying safe. And most importantly keeping in mind that by protecting oneself, you’re also protecting your loved ones and the vulnerable.
Therefore, I start this Blogmas by saying that yes I am ok, exhausted, lots of things happening but overall coping and trying to do my best. And you know what, this is what you can only do, you can only try your best.
So join me in my Blogmas 2020 journey, I hope that even though the pandemic is very much here, we still all have a pleasant Christmas and hope that next year would be better.
See you all tomorrow for a hopefully Christmas related post!
It’s that time of year again!! During the past three years I have done Blogmas and this year will not be the exception!
Blogmas may also get me in touch with writing again as I seem to have abandoned this platform and gave priority to my others. For this I apologize, I do not want to give excuses, however, it could be my denial in the way that I soon have to sit down and write an assignment for the masters course I am undertaking. Please note I have not written an assignment in over a year!!
Anyways, Kezia we are drifting away from the subject of this post and that is BLOGMAS!!!! December is here and today is the first day of the month! I’m so excited to see what this month brings and I look forward to celebrating the holiday season with my loved ones! I will try and post a blog post a day as that is what Blogmas entails! And each day will cover a different Christmas theme!
Today’s post is going to be more of an introduction and with that I shall leave a photo of my advent calendar. This year it is of Kinder, does anyone have the same calendar as me???
I opened the first window and found a white bueno flake. I am not going to lie but it was a little dry. Yet am excited as I think each day will be a different kinder treat, so I cannot complain there.
Also, today marked the first Christmas giveaway that I shall be hosting on my Instagram and Facebook. Throughout the month of December I will have Christmas giveaways and this is to thank you for all your amazing support! I also want to thank the brands who so kindly agreed to collaborate with me!
The first Christmas giveaway is with Wood and Tassel which is a handmade jewellery brand created by a talented Martina! To participate on my Facebook page click here or to participate on my Instagram page click here.
Anyways, I do not have much to add, just that I look forward to seeing where December takes me!! I wish you all a lovely first day in December as well as the rest of the month!
I can imagine what you are all thinking, Kezia where have you gone?
Well that’s a good question! Since my last blog post, I started a new JOB and I GRADUATED in Scotland … so yeah I am quite busy and getting back into my routine after coming back from abroad! I am so happy to have a routine again as I don’t work well without one!
If you have been following my blog, you know that during the month of December I do Blogmas, and this year isn’t any different.
Now I may not be starting off Blogmas with a very non-chrirstmas related blog post however, this is something you might want to try out during these winter cold months that are upcoming. So technically It makes sense of including it in my Blogmas!
Cocoa Locks is a brand that has these miracle worker products for healthier hair. They offer a hot chocolate or milkshake and have free worldwide shipping. I personally never had heard of a hot chocolate that would help your hair, even when I told my friends they couldn’t believe it. Nonetheless, I was eager to try it out especially with all the positives that they stated to have which are –
It is formulated for fuller and longer hair
It is said that it is more powerful and effective than vitamins or gummies
It should help reduce the chances of damaged, broken hair and help achieve healthier hair from within.
Even though you are drinking hot chocolate, it is made up of low calories, low fat – only 26 calories a mug.
It tastes great and contains healthy ingredients such as Zinc and Biotin which have been clinically proven to achieve longer hair.
Therefore, this hot chocolate formula repairs, rebuilds, helps with growth and strengthens your hair. “It is infused with essential hair vitamins & minerals to ensure that you can achieve that celebrity shine with just one Hot Chocolate a day!”
BIOTIN & SELENIUM – Promotes the growth of hair to ensure that new and existing hair are growing at a healthy rate
SELENIUM, ZINC, FOLIC ACID – Improves all round condition of the hair by repairing damage caused by external factors and stimulates new hair to grow.
BIOTIN – Increases hair production, which creates fuller hair with more volume… say goodbye to flat, lifeless hair.
ZINC & SELENIUM – Thinning, loss of hair are often due to less zinc or selenium in your system, and cocoa locks includes them to make sure your daily needs are met!
My thoughts …
Well I love the idea of a hot chocolate helping my hair grow and be healthy. It’s quite easy to prepare, I like taking it with some heated milk and mix it with two tablespoons of cocoa locks and then leave it cool down a little! I love the taste of it, it’s not too thick and not too chocolate-y but just right!! Even though I love the idea, I kind of forget to take one per day though. I like that during the winter you have your warm drink sorted but I don’t find myself taking it everyday!
As for results, I have taken it approximately 15 times in the last month and I do notice that my hair is less lifeless, stronger and longer. I did go and trim it and applied colour in the before and after photos.I don’t understand in hair much, but I do like how my hair styles now and it\s easier to brush through. I guess if you don’t like taking vitamins, this could be an alternative and what\s a bonus is that for winter you have a warm hot chocolate and for summer you can choose to have a cool milkshake, as they have the milkshake version too!!
What do you guys think? Are you interested in trying this out for yourselves? Or have you already tried it out? Let me know your answers in the comments down below!! Thank you all so much for reading and I appreciate all your support! I hope that you are excited for my Blogmas this year!! Also, please be sure to check out my FB page where I will be hosting Christmas Giveaways throughout December!! Love you all!!
