being a christian who struggles with mental health, I have always felt as though there was a certain stigma surrounding the idea of a person of faith in an all-powerful, healing God taking a medication for anxiety + panic attacks.
hair – it can really make or break your look, can’t it? I practically live by the phrase “your hair is the crown that you can never take off,” so I do everything I can to use products that are going to style it well + keep it healthy; and one of my go-to products recently is Navy Hair Care’s Prep + Finishing Spray. if there’s one thing that gets me super excited about Navy Hair Care is that it’s my first partnership where they reached out to me *cue baby-blogger freakout* and boy am I glad they found me because this product has truly been one of the best additions to my hair care collection!
ahhh, the gym. the place we love to hate.
it can be hard to find the motivation to drag ourselves over to the gym, I think for a lot of reasons, the main one in my mind being that we’ve equated exercise as punishment – punishment for what we ate, punishment for being overweight. as a result, we have broken perceptions + damaged views of the beauty of exercise.
truthfully, I didn’t know what I was going to try and post about today. it’s been a very busy season for me and my helpers who help make this blog so possible, so it’s been easy for me to put the blog on the backburner a little bit lately. but, after last night, something was laid so heavily on my heart and knew I needed to share.
hello lovelies! I hope you all had a pleasant weekend, whether that was getting some relaxing peace and quiet, getting chores done, or spending time with friends. mine was a combination of all three! friday was my rest day, saturday I managed to get some organizing + deep cleaning done, napped, went to the gym, and then sunday I attempted to meal prep (but more on that later) and finally made my way over to the Norman medieval fair.
over the three years I’ve lived in Norman, I had yet to go to this annual fair until this past weekend. I had been to medieval fairs in the past, mostly in my elementary homeschooling days, but there was certainly a lack of interest on my part in those days. I wasn’t really planning on going this year either until a couple of friends invited me to go, so I decided “why the heck not.”
it’s official – I’ve hit the halfway point of this Accutane journey! It’s crazy to realize it’s the downhill stretch from here. My dermatologist said that this 3/4 month point is where I should start to see a lot of real breakthrough with my skin.
I can’t believe it’s practically April, already! March has been a good month – filled with a lot of busy weekends spent with friends + family, so I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun! March has been a good month as far as implementing some more structure into my life, especially as far as my health is concerned, so I’m excited to see how April will add to it.
