Really love the smell and feel of this hand lotion.  Sad to see its only a limited edition.  Pls bring back.

I bought these OOFOS while I was in the US and felt the need to tell the Internet that I approve. 
I mean, sure, I’m not a person who fears ugly shoes (I wore Vibrams exclusively when I started running and bought a pair of hot pink Crocs to wear while cooking)… but I thought these were hideous when I first saw them in the shop, and yet -  after trying them on - I was well prepared to spend $40 on the black, slip-on style as I hadn’t yet spotted the colorful flip-flop display.  
They call themselves “recovery shoes” and while I haven’t used them yet after a run or a hard gym session, I have been using them to walk around the house and LOVE them.  I think they’re so comfortable because they have a really high arch, which feels great on my high-arched feet.  To me they feel like they actively stretch my foot/ankle/calf.
You need these.  They run big so size up.
(It should go without saying but OOFOS has no idea I’m writing this post!)

It’s 4:10am and I’ve been up since 2:30.  I remember when I used to just not consider jet lag “a thing”, ha!  

But really it’s not so bad.  My long ass trip back to Dubai went pretty smoothly and I took my mom’s advice to use my ~7 hour layover to get my hair and nails done instead of attempting to sightsee something in DC.  My hair is supposed to be ombre, but it’s barely noticeable… but that’s ok, at least now I have something to build off and it would have sucked to have it look too harsh… and I mean come on, I chose a salon based on its accessibility from IAD and a few Yelp reviews!  This is what I’m eventually going for, as per my little sisters’ advice (which often seems to be “Sheryn you need to dress/style yourself more like a Kardashian”!).

Leaving was very, very hard.  I feel like my heart is tugged towards the US more and more and I look forward to Simon and I moving there when we are ready and f i n a l l y have our ducks in a row.  Things are progressing slowly but surely, and don’t get me wrong - I enjoy our lives here and am generally happy.  But nothing can replace family and I am just feeling readier and readier to head back as time goes on (this feeling is often exaggerated in summer because I loathe the Dubai summer).

I spent the first 90 minutes of my “morning” organizing life things.  Catching up on emails, online banking, etc.  It helps me feel better; like I”m working towards my goals and not just sitting idly by, but um hello, I’d be perfectly happy to be sleeping right now, you hear that circadian rhythm?  

We are all just faking this adulting thing, right?
