So I've been going back and forward with what to share and what exactly I want to keep blogging about. Truthfully, I'm not one to pour my heart out about the down right hard things in life. I mean you guys come here for fashion and to escape everyday life, right? But let me start by saying that 2016 shook me to my very core and still is effecting me now (even though I'd like to say it's not). It's changed me and my perspective. It's changed what I want to post about. So I feel like I have to start sharing right now about why you'll see some new types of posts.
The C word-otherwise know as cancer. Even now, this is hard to type. In May, my sister gave me the bone chilling news she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 42. My heart sank. My world felt like it turned upside down. In the midst of dealing with my sister, two months later, we get the news my mom has early signs of breast cancer. WTF. This doesn't make any sense. This isn't suppose to happen. And why? But silence. There are no answers. And then you start to wonder about yourself-your health. All three of us.
Lots of changes have been made. Let's just say we all went down a rabbit hole of learning and searching. I felt like I had to do something to prevent this. Maybe it's someway to feel in control of something that takes it all away. In no ways am I trying to preach, but it down to food and home and beauty products. Understanding the food that goes in our bodies and the products we choose to use. And that's where you'll see some changes here.
Get ready for clean beauty posts! Over the past year, I've worked on switching my beauty products and it's not always pretty. It was hard. You don't know where to start. Where do you shop? Is Sephora okay? Is the makeup I've been wearing for the last decade safe? I'm no way an expert, but don't want you to be that girl standing at Whole Foods building up a sweat over finding a new deodorant. Yup! Been there, done that! And worse, actually spending $10 on a deodorant that leaves you embarrassingly stinky. Yeah, that happened, too. So you know, I'll share the good, the bad and the smelly with you.
P.s The linkup is BACK!
