Best of Hello Smart Blog 2016

December 2, 2016
Happy Birthday OFS Smart Repair
Can you believe it’s December already?! Where has 2016 gone?

We’ve gotten to that time of year when everybody is thinking about beachy holiday vibes, planning Christmas shopping and wondering how on earth the year flew by so quickly…!

And what a year it’s been here on Hello Smart Blog… We’ve had so much FUN!

We met athletes, designers and CEO’s. We ate wonderfully YUM nachos, Smartbox sarmies and drank the best coffee in town. We went to the funkiest Night market and travelled to Cape Town, Umhlanga, Gauteng and even Paris, France. The Smartguys and Smartgirls of OFS Smart Repair rocked the fashion in our style section and we featured super cool Insta inspired flat lays.

In fact, we’ve had such an exciting year on the blog that we’ve decided to dedicate the whole month of December to the Best of Hello Smart Blog 2016.

We’ll be featuring the Best of our Style, Lifestyle, Brainy Business and Bright Sparks posts – So keep an eye on our Facebook page during December to see who made the list!
