✖️ GAD & Battling Constant Fear

I’m an anxious person. It’s often hard for me to openly talk about my anxiety, because not one thing in particular will trigger it, it’s everything…

✖️ If We Were Having Coffee

Let’s be honest here, I’ve been away for far too long now, and have potentially lost a bit of my mojo. Life took a few unexpected twists and turns, which naturally happens. But, here I am trying to make a comeback and hopefully, give myself a fresh start.

✖️ Fresh Start

Hey there, internet world. It’s been a minute, hasn’t it?

I’m really glad that you’ve found your way to my blog. I was going to keep this short and sweet, but, I’m in love with writing, and on the break I took I found myself missing it more and more each day that passed. However, I do feel like some changes need to be made. ‘Alura Dupuis’ has made its mark and has come to an end. No, truly, I loved what I started creating, but as time went on, it just didn’t feel like ‘me’ anymore.

Social media and the internet in general can be a wonderful, yet terrible thing. Off and on throughout 2017 and 2016 I was unlucky enough to experience some of the more terrible and negative bits.... Don't you worry, this isn't a lengthy post about why and how, as I like to keep things positive and upbeat. This is how I handled it.

If you’re like me and have big, voluminous, and complex hair, what hair conditioner you use becomes the main tool in your shower routine. I am so fussed about what products go into my hair, I can't imagine not having a proper hair conditioner. Keeping my hair soft, luscious, and moisturized are my top priorities when it comes to my picky curls, and American Cream is a winner for my dry hair.

Keeping athletes in mind, LUSH has released a bottom rub designed to make your skin more comfortable while controlling friction and chafing. Although my football years have been placed on the shelf for about a year now, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the idea of a bottom rub. LUSH’s Rump Bottom Rub was primarily released as part of their LUSH Summit Exclusive back in February 2017, but has made its way into a regular line. With the line ‘make your derrière great again’ how could I not dig my claws into it?
