I had an epiphany in the shower this morning. I don’t think this will surprise those close to us, but here it is: bridgems is a really amazing writer, and she’s deep, in that super insightful natural writer kind of way. Me…I can write, but when it comes to this blog, I have the most fun posting things I see on Pinterest, exercises I do (or want to do…) at the gym, and today – a new hairstyling trick that rocked my world. Yes, it did rock my world. And I’m owning it.
But here’s the thing: I think it’s exactly this that has made our friendship so strong and special over the years. We have plenty of similarities and often see the world through the same, or very similar lenses. But we are oh so different, and I think we complement each other.
So here’s to our one year anniversary of blogging together – say what???
And to the new trick that rocked my world. Have you ever used hot curlers? My cousin’s girlfriend convinced me to go buy some and it’s amazing. Unlike an iron, these heat up in 85 seconds and takes five minutes to pull your hair into (and I have a lot of hair). You can then do your makeup while they set, and I swear it comes out like this or better… (yep, another bridgems-kelsemb difference: morning rituals – yoga and tea for her, gym and coffee and a loooong time for me to prepare for the day).
Oh, and I had to give a shout out to the newly engaged couple. They had me over for dinner last night, much to their surprise. The food was delicious, but what was better was soaking up all the love, seriously.
