Retail Therapy: ZTE Blade ZMax

I got my phone!!!
After months and months of waiting, I finally got my new phone. I usually get a new phone every year, because honestly, I think Metro PCS phones are only built to last a year. I'm also very happy with Metro PCS service, and I have had both Sprint and Verizon. I have had Metro PCS for over a decade now I am sure. My previous HTC was on the fritz for a long time, even before the year mark. There are things I will miss about that phone:
  1. Themes!
  2. Custom Ringtones!
  3. Dual speakers!
With the ZTE the factory wallpaper and ringtones are HORRIBLE. Just absolutely horrible. It looks like I have to download some kind of launcher just to get customize icons or themes, so I really miss the HTC market. This phone screen is glorious and crisp! And guess what? I can hold it with only one hand! Which is a plus for me, because I love to snap selfies, and reading on the go.

I'm actually super bummed that it is so complicated in order to customize it, like I said, coming from HTC where everything was a pre-loaded app, I'm super bummed out. I ended up getting the phone for $125 yesterday. I was told $180 when I first decided I wanted it a couple months ago, then $150, and finally a much affordable price. Once I get these ugly factory settings changed, I will be a happy camper.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
