Week in Review #7

DSC03593I couldn’t even believe it myself. I haven’t posted a week in review in over THREE MONTHS?! I actually went to check dates so I could I know the facts and my last post was December 14th, right before the Holidays.To be honest, I don’t even remember what happened. I went through a period of not having any creative influence or inspiration and with winter finally making it’s way to Texas my mood  for everything just went completely down (anyone else deal with S.A.D, Seasonal Affective Disorder?) Our daily walks screeched to a halt, as the rain was non stop and the temperature dipped into the 50s and 40s (ewww). 

But I’ve been digging my way out of that feeling because Spring is right around the corner. Warm temperatures are back and I’ve found a new eyebrow threading shop that I can trust to make me look and feel good. 

Now that I’ve gotten you up to date on my recent disappearance lets start on my review.

#1 YouTube has gotten me back in my creative flow! I did a total rebrand of my channel and started putting forth major effort in getting videos out. Which is resulting in more engagement on my channel. YouTube is nothing with out community engagement, so I hope that more people will continue to stop by and chit chat with me and share ideas.

#2 Trip planning is all done! We leave in 2 days and I actually need to check into our flights online in about an hour. It still doesn’t feel real, but once were cooped up on a plane for 20+ hours, I’m sure the excitement will kick in! We’re all packed and ready to go, even though I’m still explaining plans to hubby because he waited until last minute to worry about how everything is planned out.

#3 I plan on vlogging our trip as well! I’m not sure if I want to do “shaky-camera” daily vlogs or just 2 videos edited to music, but we shall see how we feel once we get over there.

#4 I bought my first ever box of girl scout cookies. I know they are the last thing I need, but I felt the need to support the black girl scouts as there aren’t many. I went for a box of Thin Mints and they aren’t that bad.

#5 I went to the dentist and after 4 years of no fillings, they finally found some cavities to drill and one tooth hasn’t been right since. I plan to wait a month and see if it gets better, but if it doesn’t I’ll be back in the office trying to relieve this sensitivity.

#6 I have a new hair style! As you can see from the photo I decided to give box braids a try. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet, they are quiet heavy and in the way. I honestly prefer my natural hair and wiggies, but braids are always an easy vacation style.

That’s pretty much all for now, it’s been a pretty boring and bland 3 months besides these things so hopefully things will pick up since it’s getting warmer!
