It is quite shocking how terrible I look sometimes without make up
Today I even scared myself
uh Hi everyone!! i know this is kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.
Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.
Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.
Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.
There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.
Thank you so much.
So one of the ligaments of my left knee decided to be a bitch and swell. It literally looks like there is a giant potato instead of a kneecap…
I´m on shit loads of meds and cannot go to work or work out…
Oh and let´s not forget the appointments I have this week with the physio, the orthopedic and traumatologist… Ay me!
So fitties, wish me luck and I cannot wait for this week to just end.
I have always seen them onn instagram and they always caught my attention (skinnymetea, detox tea, etc)But what turned me off ws the ridiculous price (50 dollar dor 24 days). So i looked for cheaper ones and I found “Kusmi Tea”. Its a French based company that produces a variety of teas. Its much cheaper (10euros roughly, its like 15dollars I think).
So I did it for a month and Im not really sure if I liked it. Im not a fan of citrus tea ( thats what detox is basically: mix of citrus, green and herbs). Kusmi Tea itself is great cuz I ordered other flavours and they were delicious and I order every 2 months now. Their detox has good critics and positive feedbacks. Usually when you do a detox you have to drink it 3 times a day before every meal. I made mistake that I drank other tea brands ( I drink a lot of tea daily) and didnt drink it everyday either so I didnt really check if it helped or slimmed me down.
But for instance, I have read on some instagram accounts I follow that brands like SkinnyTea are a fake and they use some sort of addictive component that makes you need that tea every day. She also said that they had a serious issue with customs cuz apparently they use cocaine extracts.
So from my experience and what I looked up, you dont need to go for the expensive brands, a local 5 dollar one is just fine cuz they all have the same ingredients really. If you order them, read all the info you can and also look up opinions cuz they can really help you. If I would have to recommend a brand I´d say Kusmi Tea is really great and not overly expensive (not sure how much shipping would be to continents outside Europe; so check that)
Hope this helped you a bit :)
