We’re Doing It Wrong

Ok I'm gonna do it again! I’m talking about dating. I saw a meme the other day that rang so true for me, I reposted it, saved it, and sent it to a few friends.  It read, “When I was young I wanted to be married by 23.  Lets all take a moment and laugh together.” and its so true!  When I was in high school I would have bet money on this but here I am.  In this jungle/limbo we call modern dating. A world I didn't plan for when I went bright eyed and bushy tailed out of my parents house at 18.  Twenty-six, I now find myself in a place more suited for a specific level of hell from Dante's Inferno, … [Read more...]

The Things We Forget

As women I think we forget just how powerful we are. We forget how strong we are and how much control we actually have. Now I'm far from a feminist but I think we as women give a little to much away in terms of our self worth and how we allow others, such as the media, men and even other woman to change our opinions of ourselves or make us doubt ourselves. We forget how beautiful we are with our curves and soft spots or with our toned lean muscles. We forget how sexy we are, with our hair and makeup done and how we can communicate with just a look from across a room. We're even sexy in ways … [Read more...]

My Hair Routine

I love my hair but it is definitely high maintenance and hard to handle at times. Its been many years of trying to find a product that doesn't dry out my hair, make it greasy or have buildup, then I found the be curly™ line  by AVEDA. This product has changed my hair routine! I love my curls and fro and I have gone through everything to find something that meets my very, VERY  curly hair needs. I have done everything, from not shampooing my hair any more and just using conditioner to using specialty conditioners. I have even stopped using regular hair products all together and would just rinse … [Read more...]

Size = Happiness

My entire life I have never known anything other than being curvy. I have always been bigger and taller then most woman in my life. It didn’t take me long to realize this but I never associated it with something negative, until one summer  in particular. I was visiting my family in Minnesota. I was at my aunts cabin, standing in the kitchen in a floor length skirt and bathing suit top and my grandma came up behind me grabbed my little love handles and tummy and said “looks like someone needs a little lipo lipo”. I was 12. My size has been a topic of discussion ever since. Now I am far, from … [Read more...]

WHAT IS 26?

At a little over a month of being 26 I find myself in a weird place, a place I didn't think I would be. Although it is not a bad place its still nothing I expected when I thought “When I'm 26 I’ll be…”. Where ever or whoever I thought I’d be, I'm not there and a completely different person. If you would have asked me 10 years ago at 16 what I would be doing at 26, I would have probably said, with great confidence, I will be an international business college grad, with a masters to follow. I would be way beyond an engagement and would have been married by now for almost a year to a wonderful … [Read more...]
