Italian plums and a graveyard shift


Last night/this morning was my very first graveyard shift at the hospital.

I think I died a little.

Here's the thing, the night before I thought it would be a grand idea 
to stay up as late as possible so that way my body would have 
no other choice but to sleep in well past noon.

So that's what I did... 
5am Wednesday became my bedtime.

Then I woke up at 11am.

My body can be so rude sometimes.

I made it though... and now, to do it all over again today.
(Which explains the au naturale hairstyle which barely ever makes an appearance)

Good thing they had my italian plums at the market.

Definitely made everything better.

Never seen these plums before. Are they better eating just ripe.. or really ripe like the mushy watery texture? They look really juicy and fresh!

By the way, I am having a giveaway with beauty products from Asia. Hope you'll get a chance to check it out ^_^

Hope your second graveyard shift turned out to be better! Love those beautiful natural curls! Enjoy your non-frizzy hair for me, girl! This Cali water is very unfriendly when it comes to my hair... My curls look so much nice in NY. =(
I love plums!! Yummm!!

Your hair is stunning!!
Good luck on those graveyard shifts. My husband works nights and I understand now how hard it is to completely flip your once regular sleep schedule. You can do it!

I've never had Italian plums, and now I'm convinced I must try them! Great pictures. I hope you found some time to rest this weekend!

Oh how I love some plums! Good for you making it through the graveyard shift...I can only imagine! :)

I think your natural hair should make an appearance more often! It's gorgeous! I have wavy hair and I've found it's so much easier (and healthier) to not straighten it everyday. Let the texture out!
