I recently celebrated my 32nd birthday, and it was quite a nice day. I finally got to wear this dress that I purchased last year! I got a little too tipsy, and couldn't even drink the 2nd round I ordered. I was a little disappointed with Nautical Mile. Being from FL, when I think "Water front dining" I think Beach front, and this wasn't the case. I still enjoyed the area. I'm bummed I was too tipsy to explore, but to be honest, there wasn't very much to see as far as sightseeing.
Getting ready? I always keep it kinda simple. I'm no make-up guru by any means. I just like to hide my hyper pigmentation and have bold lips. I don't even wear mascara because it irritates my eyes. I also throw in the towel when it comes to pink lipsticks! It just doesn't agree with my complexion what-so-ever. The red looks much better. Both mattes were by Black Radiance.
I love being out in Long Island because it reminds me a lot of being home. There are actual parking …
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?
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…
