Why I Blog? Popsy Chic Blog

It has been almost a year since I started my blog.  Ever so often I get asked, Why I Blog? or get told “you never strike me as the writing type”.  After all, I don’t get paid to blog, I have a full time job (which sometimes feels like two jobs in one) and so why do I blog? Blogging for me, is about sharing.  There are certain things in this world that are free and if you use them effectively, you can help make this world a better place.  Sharing and inspiring are two things that are very important to me. It is about making a difference.  To share and to inspire cannot be quantified, it is not tangible, but it can be a game […]

Tash Runs – Benefits of a Running Club

Should you join a running club?  The simple answer is, YES. Running clubs offer a world of benefits.  On your most difficult training days, you are coaxed by like minded lycra groupies into giving it your best shot!  The first step is to go online, search for a club in your area and find one which one suits your schedule.

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 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 […]

Tash Runs – My Running Journey

Tash Runs - My running journey

This morning when I went for a run, I thought that it would be a good idea to share with you, my running journey and hopefully inspire you to get out there and give it a try.  I then thought it would be good to start a series within the blog dedicated to running.  As you probably figured out and if you read my about page, most call me Tash, therefore I decided to call the articles dedicated to running”Tash Runs”.  This marks the first article in the Tash Runs series. How did I make the start? I started running regularly in January 2015. I joined the local Parkrun in Lonehill.  What I enjoyed about starting out like this is that you run with many […]
