August Hair Update





My hair is giving me major hell right now. It could be because of the humidity or it could be because I have been putting my hair up in nothing but buns. SO I decided to finally do an overnight DC and flat iron to check my length. I must say, my hair has grown about two inches since April which is fairly normal. 

I am changing up my hair regimen which is probably not the best BUT I want to start back doing my pre-poo and co-wash twice a week. I believe this will help my hair and I will definitely document for you. 

For now, I am using my Organix shampoos and conditioners along with my special concoction of oils. I still use EcoStyler gel and air dry. You know how I do. LOL.

My wedding is in less than 30 days so I have tons of footage coming up of outfits, vlogs and more! Don't you go anywhere. You know where to find me... 

Hope you had a great week.

The Journey



I did it. I finally moved from Europe to Japan. The journey took a total of 21 hours but it is over and done with. Many asked why but the answer is simple: the man that I love and will marry is here. So this is where I will be. 

Speaking of wedding, the big day is next month. Can you believe that? Of course, I will have vlog footage and photos galore but it seemed like yesterday that he just proposed. You can see the Mister on my Instagram and all of our travels. 

Do you see the beautiful view from my new home? I absolutely love it and the beach is a completely different way of living that what I had in Germany. The salt water is so hard and my skin went through a bit of a hard time at first. Yet and still, I pulled it together and posted my skincare video for you last week. Thanks for the sweet comments. So glad you enjoyed it. 

Also, these photos are from my new Iphone. I know right? I decided to stop being an Android user....

Well right now it is 3 am and I just finished a workout. So off to shower and then bed. 

How did you enjoy your week?

Laugh Some


 

If you ask most of the people that know me, their first impression of me is a mean girl. If you ask me, I am misunderstood. While I don't smile as often as I should, the first quarter of this year has shown me that I need to. I need to laugh more, do more and love more.
It's been a long time but I'm on my way there.

Switzerland Haul!!

I finally finished editing this video. YES!!!!

 
Do you know how long it took me to do this? 5 days. All because I have a big issue with long videos that are over 6-7 minutes. I can deal with a few long videos but they must be informative and relatable to use daily such as how tos and motivational videos.
 
So here we are, a little bit of a haul and you can find photos from my travels on Instagram.
 
I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.
 
Tomorrow is April 1st. Can you believe it???
