Function of Beauty Shampoo & Conditioner

While I’d like to say that I’m not picky about my shampoo and conditioner, I’m aware that saying that would make me a liar. So yes, I am picky; my hair is finicky and I’d like it to just stay out of my face, and look alright. I don’t think it’s the biggest request, but with relatively fine, curly hair, it’s a big request.

Packing: Whats in my Personal Item

When you fly (or take almost any transportation) you are allowed one carry on luggage, and one personal item. Personal items are always smaller and are usually a backpack or a purse. I have a cross body bag as my personal item/camera bag, and I’m really digging it. Since I already went through what’s in my carry on, let’s talk about my personal item.

Packing: What’s in my Bag

Alright Fangirls, it’s the last Friday before I leave. While there are some last minute things that aren’t packed yet, I have a pretty final idea of what is coming with my for my trip to NY and then overseas. I think I’ve packed pretty reasonably, and am honestly proud of how little I’m taking. When I was younger, I went to Europe for 3 weeks and had a full size suitcase, a carry on, and a personal bag all stuffed to the brim. Things are different this time.

Break

I wanted you all to know that we’ll be taking a short hiatus. I’ve been really overwhelmed with fundraising and training, along with work, other work, and writing. I need the week to try to get some posts backed up and prepared, so I can be more consistent and ready to go. I apologize, but I’m hopeful that it’ll make things easier, if I have some time to get some stuff on the back burner.

I appreciate your patience and support. We will be back next Thursday, and ready to go!

My Body

I have a lot of issues with my body; the way it jiggles and how muscles never seem to be defined. I don’t like that I break out in acne often because of my exercise & facial cleaning routines. I don’t like the way my thighs rub together when I walk or run; not just because I don’t like how it looks, but that’s something that can genuinely hurt.

On Treating Yourself for Yourself VS for Others

I didn’t really know what to title this, or honestly to what end I’m writing this. It’s not a reaction to something that was said, nor is it an attack on those who have different opinions than mine; I just needed to write it down. The other day I posted the below photo in my Instagram story, because I realized that I use a lot of products daily. As soon as I posted it, I realized that though my friends aren’t usually the type to assume, some folks may see that as a way to either humble brag that I spend too much on products (1. It’s my money & 2. I’ve actually slowed my spending tremendously because I have so much product that hasn’t been used yet), or to show how hard I work to make myself look good.
