Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes [or in your hair?] - Marilyn Monroe
I am dedicating this post to someone close to me. To someone I love with all my heart. To someone that has taught me from a young age that you are perfect just the way you are. I am so blessed to have spent all those summers with you in Greece. This woman is the strongest woman I know. I know you will overcome this hurdle in life. I love you.
Happy Sunday Everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and are motivated and ready to get back into the swing of things tomorrow. Before you doze off into a good night sleep I wanted to tell you a little bit about hair - the oh-so hot topic- and how I plan on helping all you beauties grow, sustain, and love it!I just have a couple things I wanted to touch on before I get started. First;
MY HAIR HAS NOT ALWAYS BEEN THIS LONG.My hair was shitty once and upon a time ago, might still be, but I do not think so. It has always been in my genetics to have thick hair, but did I embrace that as a teen? NOPE. NON. OXI. Not a mother-fucking-chance. I dyed it, this is not a bad thing by the way - I just do not believe in it anymore. I even box dyed it. I did not get it cut enough. I neglected it at times. I would do the opposite and over "love" it by blow drying it nearly everyday when I first started going to University. I went through a phase where I shampooed, and showered everyday! For me, that is mad to even think about doing now. So I am hoping/assuming that you are catching on that I was not exactly the best hair owner back in my day. My point? Just remember before you start shaming your inner goddess, and putting down your hair that we all start somewhere. Hair grows... that is why is it so cool! Second;
Hello, Hello again! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I've spent most of my morning working on this healthy hair + skin post, eating, working out, eating, working, and singing a long to Beyonce. Oh and dancing. Speaking of dancing, why the hell did I ever stop? Dancing used to be one of the things that made me happiest.
My parents.*Yep, now I am crying*. These two goof balls came to this country with nothing, and I mean that honestly.
My. Parents. Had. Nothing.
The keys to goal setting are in Organization
"We become what we think about, we are all self made, but only the successful will admit it."Hello everyone! Every day I am asked "Maria, how the fuck do you do it"? Typically I answer by saying, "I guess it is in my blood to hustle." Hours spent thinking about it and I realized that since I was young I developed habits to success! Before we jump into my 5 tips I would just like to quickly get very cheesy with you guys. As you read the list below you may realize that I do not mention one of the most important things to organization, and success...........
In order to succeed, and stay organized you have to believe in yourself. You have to learn to train your mind to believe in yourself more than anyone ever could. The power of believing is the strongest gift you could have. If you are reading this and know that you do not believe in yourself then let me tell you this. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. Try your hardest, sweat your balls off, never give up, because I swear something amazing is destined for you.

"The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself"
It has been awhile folks, but I am back with an important topic; learning to love yourself + self confidence. For years and years I would tell myself, and people around me that I was strong. I don't know if I did this because I thought I was, or because I was confusing the word strong for something else. Maybe I was confused because for years I was strong; I was ripped, I had tree trunk muscles legs, and I had the pain tolerance of The Hulk. I guess what I decided to believe is that when I was young (and I believe this to be the same for a lot of people) I was taught that being strong means you are strong.
