Desperately Seeking Stronger Hair?

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Neutrogena. Any opinions expressed in this post are true and my own.

True story…sometimes I just want to chop all of my hair off. Maybe go with something like a pixie cut. In my head, I think that things would be so much easier with short hair. I wouldn’t have to style it, damage it, and worry about split ends. Then, I see photos of myself with long hair and I fall back in love. And I remember that with products like Neutrogena’s Triple Repair line, I don’t have to worry about all that damage anymore. Read more

Are You a Romper Kind of Girl?

It’s that time of year again, when rompers start to pop up every where. I personally love them. As you can see here, when I wore this floral one from Torrid. OK, it’s been a while since I’ve worn one, but that’s because I haven’t found the perfect plus size romper. You know, one that is not too short for starters. And it has to fit in all the right places. We all have our criteria for certain styles of clothing, don’t we? Besides, I think the romper is definitely a love or hate item.  Read more

Finding My Inner Strength

Losing a loved one is never easy. Never. Last week, my grandpa passed away. He was a loving, funny, hardworking, and amazing man. Losing him has not only hit our family hard, but it’s kind of left me in a weakened state. I’m not sure if it’s the guilt of not visiting him enough, watching his battle in the hospital, or a combination of both. I do know I’ve had to search hard, high, and low for my inner strength.
