Gym for the win – Week 3

As I’m another week through the challenge I thought I’d update you on my progress. What did I do this week? Body Combat, Circuits, general gym cardio and weights and my regular pole dance class.

Castor Oil for Hair Growth Follow Up

About a month and a half ago I wrote a post here about how I was trying out using castor oil to see if it could make my hair grow faster/better/longer/stronger.  Well, I went to the hairdresser recently and she commented, unprompted, on how the thickness in my hair was really coming back.  I have personally … Continue reading
