How’s the saying go, work hard spend hard? Play hard 🤔? Same difference 🤷🏿♀️! I’ve been in the mood to try new stuff. Mood hit me like a ton of bricks and here are the results of my shopping endeavors over the last two weeks? I haven’t opened or tried anything here yet but uber pumped about errythang!
🔍Merbliss Wedding Tear Aloe Honey Eye Patch. Went back to @oo35mm to pick these up because I’m bout ready to give up on the #heimish patches 😐.
🔍CosRX Low PH BHA Overnight Mask
🔍Holy Snails Sunfish Serum. I bought the version that contains niacinamide ☺️.
🔍Maskingdom Organic Cleansing Flakes. I’m OFFICIALLY OBSESSED with paper soap thanks to @sheena_isapunkrocker 😳. Omg it’s so convenient! After trying these @miirushop’s event I once again got caught up and just had to buy them. Royal jelly paper soap, bruuuuuh 😭! And the container is just gorgeous 😍!
🔍Dr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18%. @victoriaxtsay and @sweetnewharu’s influence 😅. I put this next to the Sunfish Serum because these are the next two serums I’ll be alternating into my routines at some point.

Another SEVERE case of TMI, but you know me by now and I’m a sharing person! 💁♀️ Well, last night I got up to pee about 800 times...as one does when approaching 40 apparently.....why does no one in the world tell you this???? Ever!!!!! Well, I’m shouting it from the highest possible rooftop girls. One day your bladder that used to “hold it” all day, because yuck, will have you running while squeezing your thighs together like it’s your job, to the nearest port a potty! Just tuck that little bee in your bonnet for later use.
Back to the story at hand....I looked in the mirror to find(hence the very sleepy eyes....for the love of literally zero vanity here folks 😂 this was about 2am)......BEHOLD! My curly locks have returned with abandon!
I’m in the process of growing it out a bit....not super long but a little longer.... I have to say I’m starting to feel a little claustrophobic from the anxiety of longer hair again. We’ll see how it goes.... If you know me at all, you know I never cut my hair, not even a strand, til I was 27yrs old and all that weight meant I had VERY long VERY STRAIGHT hair (long story of fake religious rules & manipulation of going to hell if I I cut it, having a rebellious spirit, and of course that’s participating in the oh so demonic witchcraft, and byebye angels and all my glory! You know, normal stuff 🙈) yes, for real, there are places in which all that is tied long, uncut hair....women only of course! 🤔 men’s hair is a WHOLE other thing.
Anyhow, I washed my hair last night before bed with YL copaiba vanilla shampoo and didn’t blow dry it. I simply applied my new FAVORITE THING..... YL Mirah hair oil! Unreal y’all!!!!! My hair is so soft and got its curly mojo back 🙌 WOOT!
What are some of your favorite natural hair care/body care products/routines?
Though I am in London, I can’t help but to share this post by @gwenstellamade . Gwen made her pair of slides from Fashion Revolution in Singapore and she is rocking this look! Does this outfit inspire you to make your own pair? ・・・
Another day... and yet the same old shirt. ✨ Yes, I’m wearing this @atomicswagtees t-shirt all week long 💕 feat. #newtome#vintage#1960s Wrangler jeans & #handmade sandals (with @lisatengstudios). 🌸
Christmas in July really is a thing! 😊🤗😃 (Excuse my kitchen counter!) -
My husband and I ordered FIVE new(to us) MacBooks for my kiddos to use! 😊😃 We are so excited to have them and add Apple products to our technology equipment (we have PCs, too)! 💻 And as you can see we have already started our inventory process (the pink labels on the chargers 💖)! -
I am so thankful for a wonderful husband who supports me and what I do for my students! I am a very blessed educator and wife! 😊💙❤️ #facilitatorlife#newtome#macbooks#teachersofinstagram
This book world is AMAZING!!! I love meeting #newtome authors but what’s even better than that?!??? Finding out she’s Cuban!!!! 🇨🇺❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #weareeverywhere 😂😂 It was so fun meeting you @fisheramelie 😘😘😘
Mama got her a new toy!!! Look what hubby brought to me at the beach tonight! We’ve been wanting to find an old mini that I can zoom around town in (hello low gas mileage), yet we can also teach the boys how to drive a manual clutch! My oldest said “Stick shift is the Millennial anti theft device since no one knows how to drive them anymore!” 😂😂😂 Not sure if that was true, but kinda cracked me up! My very first car that I paid for myself in college was a manual. I remember FREAKING out if anyone got five feet behind me at a stop light!! (Tallahassee is full of hills). Thankfully I never slid into anyone’s engine, but I definitely left some tire marks getting a jump at the gate! Lol
So let’s take a poll.....give me your age, and if you know how to drive a manual car!!!
Out with the old and in with the new!!
After having my 'colours done' 10 days ago I asked for a wardrobe overhaul and this morning I received it. Such fun!! So many gorgeous pieces in colours, cuts and fabrics that make my body sing. AND all at a bargain price from a lady who was decluttering her own collection. How does it get even easier than that?! #newlook#creator#withease#askandreceive#recycledfashion
Reading a couple of books I’ve never read before. 📚 I was reading another book “Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Olympics” which talked about these two books as having been banned books. I never knew that. So I looked it up and then checked them out. I enjoyed “The Lorax” especially reading it aloud to my pups and saying things like Thneed, Truffula, Humming-Fish, & miff-muffered moof, it was a fun and interesting read. I’m halfway through “A Light in the Attic” and it’s bizarrely interesting. #reading#newtome#amreading#bannedbooks#bookstagram#booksforall#librarybooks#summerreading
Here is my #toyotatacomasr5
It took me several months to find a decent one that was for sale. I bought it from someone who has owned and babied it for 19 years.
I paid cash for it and am keeping my #WRX ....just needed something with a bit more versatility to complement my #subaruwrx
This beautiful little #truck already has my heart!
