I don’t have the time for it. Finding even an hour of free time, during business hours is almost impossible with my crazy schedule. It’s gross. I don’t know if y’all have ever really looked around a nail salon … but they aren’t the cleanest places…

I want to improve my skin care routine, and actually stick to it. I want to workout more, and set a workout based goal for myself. TBD. Maybe 2020 will be the year I finally run a half marathon.

    Breathe Better, Breathe Healthier – Intellipure

    I haven’t told many people, mostly because I’m not super excited about it – but I will be having a complete nasal reconstruction next year. A nose job, yes – but more importantly, the reconstruction will really be of what’s on the inside of my nose. I have a few major problems that have been seriously affecting my breathing for years now. I have a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, nasal collapse, and my nostrils are entirely too small.
