And how are you?
At Tribus Urbaines, we are fine. In this extraordinary time, we are forced to be ultra-creative in every facet of our lives. At the same time, we need to refocus our routines, reflect on our lives, and take care of ourselves and our children. We are reading, making videos, writing – to you of course but also to ourselves, and often about Tribus Urbaines. Maybe one day, we’ll publish what we are writing. Who knows.
If you too are in the same state of mind as we are, here (bellow) is a list of books that we have read and enjoyed. If you read them too, perhaps we can discuss them over a hot drink the next time you visit us at Tribus Urbaines.
We’d also like to share a link to our blog post, guiding you through a good hair routine. Now is the time to develop good hair care habits so that they become well established routines that you will stick with over the long term.
