Ulpha – It’s 2016 and you’re my bitch!

So 2016 made me its bitch! I kid you not. I’m usually the one that says uneven years hate me, but 2016 wasn’t any kinder. It’s been the year of drama, family drama, life drama and new job and the result – my body took a beat, my face took a knock and mental exhaustion was the only thing I was friends with. It became so bad, Mybulen and I became friends due to the excessive headaches and migraines and melatonin was my final option to get some sleep.

It became so bad, Mybulen and I became best friends due to the excessive headaches and migraines and melatonin was my final option to get some sleep.

Wish me luck

xoxo
