I am a 33 year old PhD student in English (specifically Composition and Rhetoric). I also run a crafting business on Etsy, where I sell plushies and jewelry. I love both cacti and balloons... talk about an odd couple!
Right now a lot of my migraines are caused by stress. I just lost my mom on Mother's Day & we have a lot of things to deal with from this. I also think they might be caused by my brother smoking in the house.
I'm glad you are starting to re-think your wardrobe. You face in that Remax picture reminds me of Mila Kunis who is gorgeous!
Be patient with yourself and open to new looks and ideas. When I go shopping or thrifting I always relax and say to myself: "Show me something beautiful" and then I really open my eyes and myself up to that expectation.
9 out of 10 times I will come away with something that I love and am really happy with and that I'm sure I would have missed if I had been all hunched up and thinking nasty thoughts about my body and it's obvious lack of air brushed perfection!
