Ania B Neutrogena_14Ania B Neutrogena_23ever since i first started blogging, it was my belief that anything that happens should be taken as an opportunity to step outside the box and try something new. when this opportunity came in the form of being asked to share my stories with Neutrogena, and do it en route to california by way of toronto, i was unfazed by the couple extra hours on the plane. this is, after all everything i had asked for. travel was at the top of our goal list when we first started and will remain at the top of that list till our very last photo. to stimulate creativity, one must always wander.

as part of our project with Neutrogena and their new hydro boost line, i will be sharing some intimate stories from my past. funny thing about the past is that it very rarely actually stays there. all of our experiences shape the people we are today; they also say a lot about our character and weigh heavily on the decisions that we are going to make in the future. without realizing it, our past lives in our present in many ways. obviously i always try to live my life in a non-comic way, but it turns out that there’ve been times where the humor in my behavior was apparent to everyone but me.
