Spring OOTD | Vivacious Apparel.

Happy Wednesday:

I am SO excited for this weeks video – it’s super short but I promise you, it’s totally sweet. 

Since starting my new job three weeks ago, I feel like I am FINALLY getting back on track with both filming & blogging.

I do plan on doing weekly videos and posts again: one video and one outfit post per week. There may be some exceptions on certain weeks were I post up two non-video posts on my blog, like this week, but overall, I do plan on getting back into a regular schedule. Thank you for keeping up with me!

Today’s video is an Outfit of the Day, featuring a special top handmade by my lovely friend and fellow blogger, Ashley, of Vivacious Lifestylin’. She, like me, has a small online shop where she sells her handmade goodies. I am a HUGE supporter of small businesses & artists, so I thought it would be fun to trade some goodies and style & feature them on our platforms. I decided to films a video because I’ve been itching to experiment with filming.

It’s that growth – I’m ready to start creating quality content, folks.

Without further or do, here is my OOTD Featuring Vivacious Apparel:

Alopecia: Shaving Bald | Vlog

Happy Wednesday:

I hope you guys are having an amazing week! This week’s been an adventure for me – I’ve finally committed to shaving bald. I finally did it. 

My boyfriend Darien was amazing enough to help me shave, which was definitely an experience on it’s own. That moment your boyfriend helps you shave bald – you don’t hear that one often. I’m seriously lucky to have him as a life partner. He has honestly made accepting and dealing with this no-hair thing so much easier. Buying me tacos for lunch and continuously calling me beautiful; he’s perfect & I feel so damn beautiful. 

Without a doubt, I’m still adjusting to being bald, but overall, I feel comfortable having no hair. I feel like I am finally me, and I couldn’t be more happy about that. Self-love is the type of love that is most important. It’s the foundation love that allows for other loves – loving another being – to be possible. I am happy to be one step closer to finding the entirety of my self-love. Embracing myself thus far has done wonders to my confidence and has made my life more amazing. I’m simply excited to see where the next year takes my self-acceptance.

I filmed the process of me shaving bald and posted it up on my channel yesterday. I shaved on Monday, December 30th, and it’s crazy to see how much of my hair has grown since then. I’m now dealing with the issue of figuring out how many days I have to wait between every shave! This is going to be one interesting journey.

Love. | Open Journal Summer ’15

Happy Wednesday:

I’ve watched a few open journal type videos on youtube and always had an interest in creating my own version. I was a bit scared at first, because it’s completely different from anything else I’ve done on my channel; it’s a lot more personal. Nonetheless, I decided to go for it.

This summer was pretty wild: I’ve experienced so much, both physically and emotionally. Self love and growth have been the stars of my summer, and I am blessed to have had all of the opportunities given to me. To be honest, I’m a bit heart broken that summer is officially over.

Becoming the mom I’ve always wanted, finding the balance of living with a partner, and learning how to love myself have been such surreal lessons I’ve learned.

I’m beyond excited to see where the fall season takes me.

Here, my open journal for Summer 2015:

Thank you for stopping by.
‘Till Friday.
