That personal touch

April 19, 2014

Now for something completely different. And pretty cool to boot: a wedding. If you haven’t yet seen the viral video of Father Ray Kelly’s surprise, personalised rendition of Hallelujah at the wedding of Chris and Leah, you’re in for a treat. While you might expect it to be a bit corny, it’s anything but. And the dude has a pretty decent voice.

An intrusion by the boss

April 18, 2014

(This is the Online column, written for The Southland Times) Is your boss your Facebook friend? Do you want the person who oversees your work also having an overview of your private life?

Angel Helichrysum Revitalising shampoo & conditioner

Samples from the Angel II Provence range were included in the March GoodieBox and  while I’m not a fan of getting little foil sachets in this monthly subscription package, I was pretty happy with the results from this product. In fact, when my current supplies of Redken shampoo and conditioner are gone, I’ll probably go buy the Helichrysum Revitalising shampoo and conditioner s as a replacement. A bonus of my new, rather short hair,...
