So there are some things that I do during the course of a month which naturally don’t make it to the blog. Maybe if I remember to capture it they’d make it to Instagram, but that’s about it. Therefore, I thought why not have a section on the blog where I post about my highlights for the month.
June, you flew by but there were definitely some moments worth mentioning. Mostly spending moments on FOOD! Yep, I definitely ate out a lot this month but it was all due to me having to catch up with friends.
The month started off on a high with a relaxing weekend at the Verandah Resort & Spa with my main person. It was his birthday weekend and also a long-awaited “mini getaway” if you want to call it such. We actually wanted to do something like this for a long while, so I’m happy it finally happened. The time spent together was great.
I did my first length check in weeks. I was feeling rather frustrated because it didn’t seem like my hair was growing at all. However, I found an old picture of the previous year and that settled my nerves. My hair is actually longer and thicker.
Also, I tried a new deep conditioner which has me super stoked to try other products in this line. I have a feeling I’m going to go crazy on natural hair products next month. But the only way to really see if something works for your hair is trial and error. I already established that creme of nature products do nothing for me and eco styler gel makes my hair hard, crunchy and has a lot of flakes after drying.
Despite the fact that I’m not yet a member, I got asked to assist the PRO with promoting the club and carrying out other projects as requested by the district. As a way to expand and develop my skills more, I accepted the opportunity. Since then I’ve been on a little high with creating social media images and such. I also have new ideas up my sleeve that I can’t wait to try for the upcoming year.
For those of who don’t know, rotaract is a non-profit service organization for young adults aged 18-30. The motto is service above self. To learn more, check out the website or our club’s Instagram page.
As mentioned previously, I ate out a lot during the month of June. I visited five different restaurants in which I may have done mini reviews on my IG page. The places I went to are Runway 10, Bay house Restaurant & Bar, Castaways, Area 51, Cuties.
Finally finished a book! I was stuck for quite some time in completing books, but I think once you find something you really enjoy you just can’t put it down. That was me with The Four Agreements. I’ve also been reading “You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life” by Jen Sincero. It has some good takeaway points, but it also seems a bit redundant/ common sense ish. Like I’ve heard all this before and you’re not even saying it a new way. There’s something about it, but I still want to finish it.
What I loved the most about this month is I got to spend time with people I care about. Sadly, I didn’t get to fit everyone in but there’s still time to do so (for those who are on island). I need to also find ways to spend quality time without racking up a bill! Lol
Why not end with my top performing post of the month:
I finessed my way with Pinterest and my natural hair posts, now it’s the largest referrer for views on my blog! Yay
