How do I look?

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Yesterday I gave Bianca from E4Elegance some room to play! Yes, the main goal is always #purplehairdontcare 💜

We decided to lift the colour a tad, (something, when done by a proper professional, does not leave your hair damaged and brittle, although I don’t do it often) so the colour would be more vibrant and not as dark as what I had it over the past six weeks.

E4Elegance not to be missed!

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

After a difficult day and night (anxiety), I enjoyed a day of pampering at E4Elegance in Bedfordview.
.
I was made to feel super special. I decided to experiment with my mermaid hair and settled on spiral curls which Helen did for me with love and care. We were all so invested in the outcome… and I love it. I feel fierce!

.
Afterwards Boiti did my manicure, pedicure and heal peel. It is a treat for sure. She is da bomb and the most beautiful woman!
.
We drank coffee, had biscuits, enjoyed some girl chatter and I left feeling heard, validated, beautiful and oh so sassy!
.
Thank you ladies, Ellen and Sam for an amazing day. You are all gems and I hope and trust your salon will grow in abundance. You deserve it.

.

I wish you insanity, #wink

E4Elegance

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Kicking the year off in a well groomed fashion is great for my productivity and essential to my mental health! If I look better, I feel better.

E4Elegance is an elegant, sophisticated yet understated salon in Bedfordview. They offer all “the usual treatment suspects”, and so much more.

They have regular specials and has the most fun, innovative and attention grabbing posts for a Beauty Salon. I am hooked on their Social Media!

Thank you to E4elegance who literally pampered me all day yesterday. Besides great skill and knowledge, your power lies in the strength of your posts and the value of your staff.

Exceptional.

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

“Is there no way out of the mind?” ― Sylvia Plath

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Some say (flashback: The Stig) one does not admit to these subjects in public. What if your clients suddenly believe you are incompetent? What if people think less of you? If that is so,  it is their ignorance and not my inability to be real.

 

Anyone who regularly reads my blog knows that I deal with excessive anxiety on a daily basis. It never goes away.  It dulls at times,  but it never truly leaves.

I’ve been on and off meds since I was 14 when diagnosed. Nothing you can tell me about the condition,  it’s treatment or the influence it has on your daily life.

I am really battling at the moment.  I wake up with my skin crawling and I go to bed feeling like my breathing is constricted.

Nothing has to happen for this feeling to be heightened. It is not based on events.  It is almost my default emotion.  It isn’t fun.  It doesn’t make me unique or special or dysfunctional.  It simply is.

Everything I have achieved in my life was with this feeling present.  Every failure in my life happened with this emotion present.

I don’t really know a different baseline. Medication takes the edge off (for which we are truly thankful), talking, writing,  accepting yourself as you are,  it all helps.

In myself, my demons and I play.  My husband loves me,  my kids are good,  I am provided for,  I am steadily getting to do what I’ve wanted to do all my life, write. 2018 shows amazing promise.

I want to encourage others not to always believe everything you think,  to ask for help if you need it and to be true to yourself.

Your self-worth is not determined by others opinion of you.

I wish you enough,
Wenchy
