Of Bread & Blanket

Oh looky, September is here already and I have accomplished two things on the first day! I baked a chocolate chip banana bread and I finished crocheting Katie’s baby blanket! I have been working on the baby blanket on and off for about two weeks now. I had to bring it to work and fiddled with it during breaktime to make sure that it will be done before her baby shower this Friday—which I cannot attend due to poor time-management by whoever organized it. Besides me, the only other person who is close with Katie in the entire workplace is Irina, and we both get out at 2 p.m. (the party is at 3!). So, the only two people she wants to attend on that shower will not be there! Like I said, poor time-management by whoever organized it. We will both try to make it but I don’t think it will happen since we both have to pick up our kids from school. Nevertheless, we already have gifts for her baby. It just sucks we can’t be there.

New Adventure

New beginnings are limitless. If you are young, you can choose to go to college or dive into the workforce. If you are old, you can go choose to continue working after retirement. One can choose to start or end marriages. The possibilities are endless. Anybody can start a new beginning however simple or drastic it may be.

I wish I earned my degree at a younger age, but unfortunately, I have not. So, I enrolled at a university and class starts next week. I will probably grumble about the number of papers to write for the entire semester, but I will do it. I am aiming for A, but a B+ will suffice.

This will be a challenge for me since I work full-time and I have a family, but I will see it…

Hair Do

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post from Divatress but all opinions are mine.

Have you ever looked at somebody else's hair and wished that you could have the same? I have! I always have long, fine, straight hair and yes, not to brag but a lot of people like my hair but to be honest, it needs more volume and more body.

I have always been jealous of my cousin's hair. She always have that full hair with the right amount of volume and wave and I thought it was always the hair I really wanted. I have tried going to the hair salon and had my hair curled  but I didn't know how to take care of it so it didn't come out great, so I accepted my fate--I will have this plain straight hair with not enough volume and body.

Fortunately there are beautiful half wigs that I can rock on during special occasions. They have tons of wigs to choose from short, straight, curly, or those amazing weaves. You can choose from real human hair, synthetic, or human hair blend. You can create your o…
