5 days of V/GF low waste meals - Yay for Earth challenge Round dos!

There are a couple thoughts that go on in my head when I am writing this. The first one is noticing that I have not written in my blog since June and the second is that I have about 5 drafted topics waiting to be posted. Alas, I apparently cannot find anything more important than doing this dinner challenge again with Amanda (Mama Eats Plants)! If you want to see the first one to get a feel for what this challenge is about, do not look far and wide, just scroll right below this and its the last blog I posted, haha.

Hair care!

I remember in high school and even years after saying "why can't my hair just be shiny, flat and pretty?" I would like to describe my hair as thick strands like a horse, very wavy and huge, and I've always thought it was so unmanageable.
