#ad "Scars aren't an imperfection- they're a representation of my ability to overcome anything that comes in my way." A couple weeks ago, I finally got a port placed in my upper right shoulder! Due to having too many PICC line IVs, my veins have thinned out and this is now the second course of action that needs to be taken. Truthfully, I'm relieved & beyond thankful to finally have one. I will have to learn how to upkeep it with regular monthly doctor visits & watch out for infections, but overall it will help tremendously with hospital stays and getting my treatments. As you’ll notice in the movie Five Feet Apart, the characters have ports as well and they are bandaged up while in use.
For those who don't know, a port is a central venous catheter with a tube that goes into a vein in your chest and ends at your heart. Normally, you wouldn't see it, but since my weight is pretty low, it sticks out about half an inch & you can see the tiny tube in my neck vein. When getting IVs from now on, there will be a little insertion in the chest area and I can attach my medicine that way. There's also many advantages for having on! Hospital stays may become shorter, getting on IV antibiotics doesn't require the stress my body goes thru when getting a PICC line placed, and I no longer have to get stuck my needles so my veins won't get damaged.
Ahhh, where does time go?! It seems like everyday gets shorter and shorter #ad and when I’m home, I love to be able to cook for my family but I never have time to go to the store and prepare the food. That’s why for the past 2 years, we have been using @hellofresh and are so thankful for the time we can spend together around the table because of them! Right now, you can use my code WHITNEYRIFE80 for $80 off your first month, click link in bio to order! #ad#hellofreshpics#freshfriends#getcooking
On Friday morning I rounded up some of my favorite mamas and littles for a garden party breakfast to kick off the holiday weekend! Party City recently launched @kazzampc, a one stop shop for booking everything you need to make your party a huge hit. We had a balloon artist and face painter to keep the kiddos entertained plus this amazing custom balloon wall built. 💕Kazzam matched me with available local vendors saving me a ton of time. Plus they offer a satisfaction money back guarantee. 🙌🏼 I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos but in the meantime here’s the only photo in the history of photos with five toddlers looking the same direction and no one crying. 🙃 Huge thanks to @thecottoncollectivetx@butterartistry@lotsoflovely_@spellevents for joining in on the fun! 🥳 #cakeandconfettistyles#ad#houstonblogger#littlepiperjune

You often ask me how to become self confident and strong in your day to day basis. My key to become a strong and confident woman is to have always a good hair day! 👱🏼♀️ It helps you so much on busy days and also it’s the greatest signature and approach to have when meeting with people. I keep using sheer blonde from @johnfriedauk and got my hair a bit lighter for this season and also the highlights are more visible and my hair just looks great! Find your favourite John Frieda product and shine like a star and demand more! My absolute favourite is the Sheer Blonde go blonder lightening shampoo that helps me to achieve this kind of a look! 🌸 #demandmore#johnfriedauk@bootsuk#ad
