Всем здравствуйте! Знаю, что пропала, не смотря на то, что в этом году я отдыхаю с интернетом. Вернее отдыхаю и работаю, что очень здорово! В этом году море и солнце меня балуют и пока не забыла напишу себе краткую памятку того, чем я пользовалась и что мне пригодилось на отдыхе море + город в 2017 году. Списк моих вещей, запросто поместится в ручную кладь. И так: 1. В этот раз я вполне обхожусь 2-мя купальниками, а взяла 6. О чем я думала? - понятия не имею, дома казалось, что надо все. 2. Для города обхожусь одним платьем, одной юбкой и двумя футболками. Платьев взяла 3 и 2 купила здесь. Неодеванных футболок 3 штуки. 3. Один комплект для вечернего променада. 4. Самая востребованная одежда для пляжа, это шорты 1шт, а надо было взять 2. И рубашки тонкие лен и батист 2 шт, в них не сгорают плечи. 5. Одни брюки и одна рубашка хлопок для перелета. Плюс плотная футболка с рукавом 3/4 на всякий случай и она пригодилась. 6. Комплект в морском стиле - брюки из льна, майка-тельняшка и белая накидка + шлепки Adidas - надевался комплект за 10 дней 3 раза, но впереди еще 10 дней отдыха. 7. Обувь. Прилетела в конверсах, в чем буду улетать пока не знаю, на погоду посмотрим. Две пары шлепок, пара сандалей были с собой. На месте купила открытые летние туфли, подходят под все - спасибо "Эконика"! 8. Четыре ремня и два тонких широких палантина пригодились. 9. Летела с небольшой сумкой. С собой везла корзинку для пляжа и сумку мягкую средней величины с кучей карманов и отделений для города. 10. Белья, украшений и косметики понадобилось меньше, чем взяла с собой. Ароматами в жару вообще не пользовалась. В общем список минималиста составлен. И большего мне пока не надо. Но кто знает, чего еще вдруг понадобится. Вернусь и точно сделаю фото-отчет того, что носила и пригодилось. Желаю вам хороших отпусков, прекрасного настроения и побольше белых одежд!

Ya he perdido la cuenta del tiempo que llevo con mi pelo natural. Cuidando y mimado mis rizos.... fue simplemente un impulso, por pura comodidad, no fue una cuestión de identidad, ni de reencuentro con mis raíces afro, uno es lo que es... y por mucho que te alises el pelo, uses extensiones rubias o te hagas un alisado de esos de keratina la esencia es la que es. Y si, siempre me he sentido muy orgullosa de mi negrura y de mis raíces. Sin embargo con la perspectiva del tiempo y con los años que llevo sin usar productos para estirar mi pelo mi sentimiento de seguridad y de orgullo se ha reafirmado. Mis rizos me hacen sentir poderosa, soy yo, tal cual!! #juliah #juliahlifestyle #rizoslifestyle #misrizos #amomisrizos #teamnatural #mujernegra #yamp #naturalhair #soynatural #naturalhaircommunity #naturallycurly #yo
