I took a break from posting, while I contemplated renaming and rebranding my site. After some thought, I’m keeping the name ‘GirlWithNoCable’ and it’s message. Thank you to each and every Queen who has visited my site, read a post, liked or commented. I took for granted the space I made here. I won’t ever … More Back and Up!
I look forward to the end of every year. Not only for the family gatherings, end of year sales, and the delicious food, but for the reflection. I love looking back at the last 360 or so days before the New Year and noting what has changed, what has challenged me and where I have … More Bring on the New Year!

I’ve been wanting to try oil rinsing for some time now, but just haven’t had to the time to add it to my wash routine. I finally did last week and now I don’t know why it took me so long! If your wash routine is anything like mine you cleanse, condition, rinse, perhaps then … More Oh Oh Oil
