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 […]

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 […]
Reflections of 2016 It is that time of the year where we spend time with loved ones and we reflect on the months that we left behind, the reflections of 2016, I call it. While the end of the year brings about hope for a new beginning in the new year and many of us tend to reflect more at this time, I often find that we forget to reflect throughout the year. We forget to have daily gratitude for the people, the opportunities and all the experiences all year around. We forget that difficulties are also major reflection points. Whilst it is also good to look back at this point in the year and place into perspective the year that has passed, I believe […]
