So I am trotting back here in shame and I need to say I am sorry. Work-life balance is an actual scam and i am here to report that I definitely cannot keep up.

Let’s review some sunscreens

I have just opened this blog in almost over two months. To be fair its actually three months now that today is the last day of February. Saying that this year started on a rather hectic note would be just a tip of the ice bag. I have struggled in all aspects of life in every sense of the word. I actually shared a bit of that on this Instagram post.
