At the end of the month, I start to look raggedy. It’s annoying, really. I’m working on the routine that sets my world ablaze, so that I never have to have a bad nail, brow, or hair day again! It’s amazing how making small changes to your body can make me feel invincible. My brows are the biggest thing. Even when my hair is a wreck, even when my nails have been chomped off, if my brows look good, I feel SO much better. Right now, it takes me weeks to build up the courage to get my brows threaded. Yep, I have tears stream down my face every time — but I love the finished look so much! I try to maintain my brows at home by tweezing in between visits. My nails are an entirely different struggle. There are times that I need to be in “nail biters anonymous”. I can go a month and have my nails grow beautifully. I’ll change the polish once a week, and get compliments galore. I’ll look down at my hands and really feel like a lady! And then there are days when my nails are disgusting. I bite them because I’m stressed, or scared, or nervous. It’s a vicious cycle, and I’m always looking for ways to make it stop. I love looking at nail bloggers and videos with creative ways to paint your nails. It’s so inspiring, and I really want to do it too! I have locs, also referred to as dreadlocks or dreads. Nope, I’m not a rasta and I’m not Jamaican. I’m just a girl who wanted hair that’s easy to maintain, cost-effective, and gives me loads of styling options.
