To be honest, we didn’t have the best relationship growing up and once I moved on to college, it became a lot easier. I was so resentful and could only focus on the past, the things I couldn’t change. Once I moved away, I felt more in control of my own life and could make my own decisions, things that made me happier and allowed my mom and I to have a better relationship. Now, she’s pretty much the only person I want to travel with and I call her at least once a day to bug her. We’re heading to Nashville in a few weeks to be old ladies together like visiting the zoo on a non-weekend day to avoid children, go to bed by 9 p.m., be up by 6 a.m. and eat all the food.
I’m also ready for humidity with Schwartzkopf’s frizz control and protect line. Meijer carries professional hair products like Schwarzkopf and my absolute favorite, Biolage.
