Nonna’s Italian Food Bar

Nonna’s (Grandma’s) was always the favourite place to visit for most of us, while growing up, and even now too. Grandma’s was the place where we spent the holidays, got to meet all the other cousins and where we all had the tastiest food – to eat till your hearts content and then more! It was also the place where you could ask for whatever meal you wanted and you knew would get it. The food was custom made for your taste buds and she always got it right.

Review: Olaplex Hair Treatment

Ola Ola Olaplex (not the ice-cream ;)) After much reading and fighting my inner and very argumentative thoughts, I tried out the Olaplex hair treatment. I initially assumed that this treatment is for coloured hair and that it is a treatment used to minimise the harsh effects of hair bleaching and colouring. I do not have any colour or treatments on my hair and most of the reviews I came across spoke of Olaplex when used in conjunction with the hair colouring process. However I later learnt that it has the potential to restore the health of all hair types – treated or not. After more reading, I finally called a few salons and heard about it straight from the hair professionals. This convinced me […]
