⚡️ HELP!!! ⚡️
My blow dryer is fried! 😩👎🏼
It literally sparks when I turn it on 😳 and I definitely don’t want to take any chances of it catching my hair on fire 🔥🙅🏻♀️
I don’t blow dry my hair very often, but I need a new one for the few days a month I do! 😂
Any recommendations on a favorite brand or type of blow dryer you love??
My hair is super thick and long (as you can see lol) so I need one that dries it quickly without causing too much static!! 🙆🏻♀️
I’ve had this one for probably 10+ years, so I want one that’s going to last me another decade if possible! 💁🏻♀️😉
💋 GIRLS GUIDE 💋
Rule number 2️⃣-
Complete a PPSR check, AKA, a Personal Property Security Register for us gals not in the know 😂
The check covers-
✅ Written off records
✅ Finance owing
✅ Odometer check
✅ Stolen vehicle check
✅ Registration details.
If there is money💰owing on the car and this loan doesn’t get paid out when you purchase the car, this debt could in fact become your debt! 😩 And that’s not what you want! 🙅🏼♀️

Heres is my transformation over the past few year's. To some it might not seem like much but to me it has been the best journey🙌 To go from being unhappy, depressed, lack of confidence and hating the way i looked in the mirror to now being happy and living a balanced lifestyle❤ Everyone needs to love themselves no matter what shape or size you are but I struggled to. I just got over partying, the hangovers and shit food, Enough was enough, i had to change. Once you start treating yourself with some TLC its amazing how your mindset can change how i viewed myself, to be a more positive person and not stress about the small things, which i have been doing alot of lately😣i still struggle to this day, we all get good/bad days, but thats life. I havent trained in 2.5months due to being sick, and excited to get back into it is an understatement🏋️♀️🎉 Girls be happy and confident no matter what #wegotthis 💯❤

Send me a direct message to order your bracelet or keychain today, it's for the best cause. If you can't order one today, please donate to or share the GoFundMe page for Crystal.
We visited with my sweet friend @flowering_fox & her kiddos yesterday. It is always SO GOOD to connect with another mama and maker/small business owner over coffee while the kids play. 💛 Zoey leapt out of bed this morning shouting “Friends! Friends!” and was very sad when I told her we won’t see them again today. 😭
"My name is Regina, and I love to smile! My personal mission statement is 'to positively impact the life of every person I meet.' I feel like there is nothing more important than a bond between two people and how a simple compliment or nice gesture can mean the world to someone. I was born in Russia and my family moved to #Seattle when I was 4. Ever since I could remember, it was my mom, dad and older sister – my small little family. It was very difficult growing up in a family with language, employment, and educational barriers. My parents always had it rough because they are both educated people, but because of their poor English they had to scrub floors and deliver newspapers in order to support us. During my summer months, instead of being a kid and having fun, I was helping my parents deliver newspapers in the middle of the night. Eventually, it started to get very hard on me emotionally when I would always have to say 'no' to a social life in order to help with 'adult stuff' like taxes and immigration documents. All I ever wanted was to be 18 and hurry up and start my own life. At the age of 20, I got married and went to California in order to start a life of my own. I think I just wanted my own freedom and married the first person that wanted something similar. At 24, my husband and I started our divorce process as we figured out that we were not meant for one another. I moved back to Seattle to be closer with my loved ones and to go back to school. This time for something I truly have a passion for – #SocialServices. I decided to dedicate my life to helping others as much as I can. I believe that if we only help one another out a little bit more, the world would be a much kinder place. No matter what anyone says, we are all the same; we didn’t choose what family or what country we were born into. My goal is to obtain my Masters in #SocialWork and to eventually start my own non-profit aimed at immigrating families with language and employment services." - Regina, WWIN Education Grant Recipient ✨ #InspiringWomen#WomenofWWIN

Story Time: This is a clip of the exact moment I decided I needed to set up a business and work remotely while travelling the world ✈️ 🌍 .
I have always loved travelling, meeting new people, embracing new cultures, attempting to learn new languages and the food... oh the food! 🍕 🍰🍣 .
I travelled as much as I could, but with only 20 days annual leave each year, it was difficult to experience all the world has to offer while holding down a full time job 🤓 📚 .
And so there, on my last day of a weekend trip to Sofia, Bulgaria I decided I was going to start making my love for travel a priority, no more trying to pack everything I wanted to see in a city into 2 days, no more begging for time of work and hoping flight prices hadn’t soared by the time my manager gets back to me. I was going to make it work, I was going to build a business doing something I love, helping people I care about and having the time and freedom to live the life I’ve always dreamed of! And so, a few short weeks later, Coffee and Cookie Media Co. was born! And the rest, is history☕️ 🍪 .
