Wedding Obsessing

I'm obsessing over what I would like for my wedding dress again.

I think I'm settling on silver or in that family. I remember seeing a wedding show years ago when I was in my early teens where the bride had color on the underside of her dress. I was so amazed by it and ever since then, I knew I did not want a boring white wedding dress. I still want to look and feel like a bride, but without the stark white which washes me out anyway.

We're not engaged yet but it's coming and that does not give much time to plan everything out. From the looks of things, I will have to have a fall/late fall wedding. I'm guessing mid to late November due to exams being in the fall. If we're on modules then we can be married in September or October. I love the fall anyway and silver would fit in quite nicely I think

I think I like Maggie Sottero's designs so far. Hopefully, the dress is affordable. They do not post prices on their website.

Relaxer Stretch

This morning on my way to work, I randomly decided that since I am studying for actuarial exams in November, I will stretch my relaxer until then which would mean no relaxer for 3 months. My last touch-up was in mid-August and I will get another touch up in mid-November.

The key I hear to stretching relaxer is moisture. Therefore, I will be adding a moisturizing co-wash to my weekly regimen. I don't have much spare time, so this will all have to be done at night, especially now that it's starting to get colder.

My main concern is itching. I have an itchy scalp and it tends to become extremely intense at around the 7 week mark. I've had to reschedule relaxers due to this issue.
Hopefully, with co-washing, tea tree oil and my trusty oinment from my dermatologist, I can get through this stretch with my scalp intact.

Wish me luck!
