Picture Perfect?

I follow a few Instagram beauty pages. I always thought, "Man, her/his face looks flawless. No imperfections at all." I recently realized that a lot of the Instagram beauty photos are enhanced by editing. Technology has advanced so much that we can now edit photos on our phones in a matter of seconds.

The Clingy Friend: Are You Too Dependent on Your Friends?

I am subscribed to the lovely Ambrosia on YouTube. She recently posted a video about being too dependent on your friends. It sparked my interest because last week I was thinking about a few people I know that are very dependent on their friends. They always have to be with someone and rarely do they spend time alone.

I am the exactly opposite. I can go weeks without being around people and feel okay about it. Sometimes I just need to get away from others and have personal time with myself and my thoughts. Me time is very healthy but too much time alone can be unhealthy at times. There was one point of my life when I did not want to be around anyone. I would dodge my friends or decline their invitation to go out. I eventually got out of this phase. I forced myself to go out more and make myself more available to my friends.

It is important that you find the balance between the two. Too much of anything is not always healthy. Life is all about balance!  I still like to have alone time more than others but it is now a healthy amount of time.

Watch the video below! Tell me what you think. Are YOU too dependent on your friends?

DIY: Cute Hair accessory

Saturday I didn't feel like being bothered with my hair. I found some fabric I bought a few months ago and thought it would be cute to use it as a hair accessory. I wrapped the fabric around my head, tied it in a knot in the front, and tucked the sides in. I created a simple cute head wrap that took less than five minutes to create.

Real Life Got in the way... (Part 1)

I’ve been missing in action for several months now on this blog and YouTube. Real life got in the way. I’m talking about real life serious stuff. Where do I begin...

For starters, the most important person in my life became ill. To hide her identity, I will call her “Ana”. Ana became extremely sick. It really messed me up mentally. Nothing really mattered to me anymore. The thought of Ana not being in my life really made me feel like nothing was worth doing or pursuing. I took over a month off from work and cried to myself everyday.

I knew my behavior was healthy. I decided to see a therapist. I wanted to talk to someone that could try to help make sense of everything happening. My therapist was awesome. She understood why I was feeling down. She reminded me that even though Ana was sick life still goes on. My therapist believed Ana ultimately wanted me to be happy in spite of what was happening to her. My therapist also made me realize that it is time that I start doing things that will move me towards a happy and productive life.
