Being Girly

Just bought a new polish about a week ago and wanted to share! I don’t always paint my nails because they chip so easily but I have finally found a polish that sticks.  This is about 6 days in!

The color is Perfect Pair 535.  It’s a nude-pink color with a gel base. Totally goes with everything! I bought mine off of Amazon. 1. Because I have and love prime, so I buy everything off of Amazon and 2. because it is way cheaper than other stores.  I also bought a few other colors so I’ll let you know how they turn out asap!

I feel pretty! Thanks ya’ll!

A New Way to Stay in Shape

Another hobby of mine is working out.  Some people don’t consider it a hobby, but more like a chore. I do it in my spare time and I love it! You’re probably thinking, what in the hell could she be doing that’s so much fun?! Well for starters, I love music so I try to incorporate it as much as possible.  On my normal workouts, I blast my iPod with my favorite music. On my not so normal workouts, well that’s a little different.

So a few months ago, I went by myself to a pole fitness class. I’ve always wanted to go but no one would ever go with me. Anyway, I got up the nerve and just went. I do not regret my decision what so ever.  I learned a sexy dance and some really cool spins.

I have now been taking this class for 3 months and I couldn’t be happier.  I feel sexier, my body looks leaner, and I’m just feel good. It is completely different from my normal workouts because I’m working muscles that I didn’t know I had and sore in places that I didn’t know existed. My flexibly is getting better and better each week. I just can’t talk enough about it.


STIGMA

The main thing I was worried about was the stigma behind pole dancing. You immediately think of strippers…right? Well I know I did.  But it’s not the same. The other girls and myself are doing because it makes us feel awesome and we are getting a great workout. There’s no judgement when you’re there. You get to be free and express your sexiness!

THE LESSON

Not only has pole dancing taught me to express myself but it has also taught me not to judge others based off of their physical appearance (which I never intentionally did in the first place). You get to be sexy with yourself and just do you…  No one is looking or thinking why are they wearing that or they can’t do that move! Well, more than likely they can!  A girl twice my size was more flexible and stronger than I was and I completely judged her.  I loved her confidence! I wanted that so bad! And now I have it!!!

So with this…I think everyone should find their workout that makes them feel like what pole dancing does for me! And when you do, you will be so grateful and you will love yourself so much more!!  Happy Hunting!!

 


Women’s Health

bc

Hey Ya’ll!  It has been a crazy week so I haven’t had much time to post.  I wanted to talk today about women’s health, mainly birth control.  I’m discussing this topic because I recently had quite an experience with getting an IUD.

So my story begins when I started taking oral contraceptive around the age of 13.  I had really bad periods, like bad periods. I couldn’t go to school or participate in any sports or extra curriculars because my period was disabling.  So after I started, I thought it would have been smooth sailing.  I thought I was free! Wrong.

On the first day after I got back on the pill (after the placebo) I would get violently ill. I usually was held up in the bathroom for a few hours until the nausea subsided. On the plus side, my cramps and bleeding wasn’t as bad but they were definitely still there.   After a few months, odd things started to happen.  My anxiety level reached an all time high.  I was having violent mood swings and when I say violent, I mean violent. To the point where no one wanted to hang out with me.  I visited my doctor and we switched up the pills to a different brand and lower dosage.  He said give it a few months.

Well a few months had passed and I was still in the same boat.  Still getting sick and still experiencing mood swings.  So BACK to the doctor I went…same thing, but this time he added vitamin supplement (B12) to the equation.  Well that didn’t do a damn thing. After switching up my pills for a 4th time, I thought I was in the clear.  I was still having mood swings but they were not as bad as before. I was feeling a little different than normal as well, and now that I look back, I was developing depression.  On the day that I realized I needed a big change was the day that I was driving down the road and I thought to myself, ‘If I drive this car off the road, no one will care and that will be the end.’  Like what?!?!  By this time, I was 18 and was set for college.

I got home and started crying and tried to explain to my mom what was happening.  I immediately stopped birth control and went to my doctor.  Within a few weeks, I was back to normal.  No more suicidal thoughts.  No more mood swings, no more toxic chemicals coursing though my body.  That shit is no joke.  I will never go back to oral contraceptive.  I would rather bleed all over myself and be in bed for 3 days.

After that I started researching other forms of birth control and came across the IUD. After the initial consultation, I was ready!  And the best thing, no freaking side effects!! Or so I thought.  I went in for the appointment and the doctor told me that it would be an easy insertion, just like an annual.  Okay cool, let’s do this, I thought to myself.  Well was I wrong. The pain was so excruciating (and I have a high pain tolerance) like high!  I have never cussed that much in my entire life.  I really wanted to kick that lady in the face. The thought definitely crossed my mind (actually a few times).  After it was inserted, I had an ultrasound to make sure it was in properly. I was still hurting at that time.  It literally felt like my ovaries were twisting.

I went home and climbed in bed and cried! So much pain.  The pain subsided after a few days but boy was it bad. I still have a few cramps here and there and am still spotting, which is normal.  I have had it for about 2 weeks now, and I don’t mind it.  No weird things are happening besides spotting and very minimal cramping.  We will see!

I really just wanted to share my BC story. There really aren’t enough out there.  If this helps you at all make a decision about what to use, great! I wish I had some information like this when I was deciding.  I really hope this helps!
