This winter seems to be so much dryer than the last. I don’t know if it is, but my hair seems beyond controllable this time around. In an attempt to find a winter hair routine, I dug into my stash (going way back to products that I used years ago, to some newbies) and finally came up with a winter hair care routine that works for me!
Today is a rather unusual day to celebrate, but it’s a good one! It’s Hendrick’s World Cucumber Day.
And in honour of this day, I’m sharing a few unusual cucumber growing tips from Hendrick’s Gin, who conducted a very different kind of experiment, which revealed cucumbers to be highly sensitive to sound, scent and touch!
So, if you want to grow the most glorious cucumbers for your G&T’s, then you may want to crank up your playlist, make better choices on what other plants you plant them with and start swaddling those glorious greens.

Danish makeup brand GOSH, (who I’ve featured on StyleScoop before) sent over a couple of their goodies for me to try. I’ve always liked the high quality of their products and how easy they are to use, so I knew these would be perfect for my lazy girls guide to makeup.
I’ve also got a little spoil for one of my lucky readers, giving you chance to play with some Danish GOSH goodness, so make sure you keep on reading …
I love reading 24 hour city guides. I like to see what others would get up to if they had only 24 hours, because I think it highlights their best parts of a city.
Although my recent visit to Prague was for 3 days, bear in mind that this was a business trip, so a lot of the time our schedule was packed with interviews, launches and store visits. But, I did manage to experience a full day of exploring before jetting back to SA – as well a few sights sneaked in between the agenda.
