So, seeing as it’s Movember and I love the Mo’ so much, I’ve decided to do my own version of the Photo A Day Challenge and I’m calling it: #JustAddAMo!
I have printed a bunch of the above Mo’ and I will randomly be sticking them on plants, computers, chairs – you name it! Mostly because I want to support a good cause but I’m a chick so no unnecessary facial hair. Sorry. I may leave them there after snapping a pic, or I may take them with me. Who even knows! There are no rules, only fun!
I’ve started already and posted a few on my Instagram. You can check them out there or on my Twitter.
Need more MOtivation? (I also love awful puns) Then watch Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues sing the greatest song ever written about Movember.
So what do you think? Will you be joining me? If you just want to keep tabs on how I spread the Mo’ Love, follow me on Instagram or Twitter, or both. Every week I’ll do a round up of the Mo’ photos so subscribe if you want to see those.
I’m a huge fan of the (sadly short-lived) Firefly series and, of course, Serenity. I love not only the characters but the awesome actors who play them, so I follow them on Twitter. As is the normal thing to do.
On my wanderings around the interwebz, I came across Visual.ly. It’s a cool website that collects your Twitter data and spits out this rather nifty little infographic. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but it’s fun all the same. Continue reading →
I love the internet, I mean, who doesn’t? I also love music and musicals. I also love and hate internet trends. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr – all of it. They are the worst and the best things about the internet.
The funny and clever people at AVbyte! on YouTube create really good musicals every week. They’re funny and the performers are good!
Need a natural, delicious-smelling facial scrub? Then you should give this Body Thrills product a try.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of this zesty scrub and it’s honestly quite fantastic.
I have annoying, super sensitive combination skin and it often freaks out on me. I’m very wary of trying just anything on my face but after seeing @ExMi rave about how it’s cleared up her skin, I was willing to give it a try.
Who is Body Thrills?
Body Thrills is a South African company that was “born from the need to create a range of products that are natural, preservative-free and entirely delicious”.
At first glance… and sniff
After screwing off the lid the first thing you smell is lemongrass and lime. It’s super refreshing and reminds me of summer. The grainy feel of the scrub had me thinking of sugar and I could tell it would be a great for exfoliation.
The first use
After wetting my face and scooping out some of the scrub, it was just a matter of rubbing it on my face and neck. I left it to settle for a few moments before washing it off with a face cloth. It was easy to apply and easy to remove which is a big plus in my book as some scrubs can be a pain to wash off.
My face was smooth and soft afterwards. Surprisingly so. I was genuinely impressed. Plus that awesome lemongrass smell hung around for quite sometime.
My skin is tricky so after a couple of hours I applied my usual moisturiser but there are those who’ve reported that they didn’t need to.
What’s in it?
This exfoliating and moisturising scrub is made with lemongrass, juniper berries, lime, lemon, shea butter and almond oil. Sounds good enough to eat!
You can grab a 125ml tub of this yummy scrub for R80. Order it here from the website.
