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.
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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
