Best Hotels in Mallorca

Mallorca is the main island of the Balearic archipelago of Spain. The capital of the island and the whole archipelago is the city of Palma de Mallorca. Hotels in Mallorca are mainly concentrated along the coast, which is famous for its wonderful sandy beaches and crystal clear transparent sea of a mesmerizingly blue color. The coastline is characterized by a beautiful combination of vast beaches stretching for many miles and majestic sea rocky cliffs covered with pine trees and picturesque bays. The local cuisine, which is based on fresh seafood and vegetables grown on the local plantations, is striking in its diversity and refinement. Mallorca is also famous for its rich folklore and traditional crafts, including wood carving, pottery, ceramics, pearl processing, national embroidery, and much more.

change is in the air [aka "why i'm rebranding"]


in my absence i discovered a few things: 1) that i should never, ever, ever consume dairy again; and 2) that as much as i love blogging, i no longer love my blog.

one&20 started a very long time ago as a hair blog to document my and my best friend's journeys to healthier hair, but it wasn't until the past year that i learned that everything else i blogged about was what really mattered to me. and for the past year, i have been fighting to try to make that fit into what one&20 was supposed to be - a written addendum to my youtube channel on transitioning and natural hair. i'm tired of fighting.

i have learned so, so much from being a part of the blogging community, and i cannot imagine no longer being a member. but my blog, while well-loved and well-intentioned, is more of an inhibition of my expression than i ever thought. 

and so, though i know most of my original followers joined on to follow along on my hair journey, i have to say that although i am continuing that journey, i cannot continue to let it dictate what i write as well as the traffic i receive. overall, i am not nearly as obsessed as i was with my hair now, and in an effort to be fair to my original readers who haven't seen many new hair posts, i will no longer continue to blog at one&20.

i am currently in the process of crafting what it is that i do want, and i will be set to launch my new blog early next week. i hope to see you all there when the time comes, and if that is not the case, i thank each and every one of you for reading and making this small space one of love, growth, and community.
with all my love,

"wash" day | 7.29


hello hello, bloglandia!

i'm britt and i own this blog - perhaps you remember me?

between having a couple of incredibly severe allergic reactions, my niece and nephew visiting, and sucking this summer dry (ie. trying to go out pretty much EVERY SINGLE DAY!), i really haven't had the energy to blog. 
so, so sorry :(...

i did, however, need to do my hair yesterday, and i decided to go ahead and share!

i cowashed on monday with tresemme naturals nourishing moisture conditioner and ogx keratin oil conditioner and rocked a product-free wash-n-go (i'm on the road towards embracing my natural, undefined texture). since i didn't use products, i didn't wash before this style.

i wore the wng in a bun before rolling my dry hair on 15 2 1/8" jet set grip curlers and six 1.75" nite curl grip curlers using beautiful textures tangle taming leave-in conditioner. i rolled my hair under.



i know what you're thinking - grip/velcro rollers on TEXTURED hair?!

it actually worked out almost perfectly.
all thanks for my taking the plunge goes to my hair/life/everything guru, carmen.

only a few got stuck in my hair upon removal, and i am almost positive it was because those sections were too large (because i didn't buy enough rollers! who knew 21 would ever not be enough for MY hair?! i thought i would have leftovers! #whomp).

i air dried for about 3.5 hours and unrolled caaaaaarefully to reveal big, soft, and bouncy hair. apparently i'm not completely over texas yet.




i will be working to perfect this technique because i am positive that this will become the basis of my regimen from this point on (more on that later as well!). it only took 25-30 minutes to put in the rollers and about seven to remove them - no heat involved at all! if i can keep this looking decent for the next two weeks, it will be a serious winner! i apologize in advance for the multitude of hair-related posts that are bound to come as i try to figure this out.

fitness friday #20 | confessions of a chronic dieting psycho





fitness friday was born when like-minded bloggers desired a place to discuss hair and health goals and to remain accountable to themselves and each other for reaching those goals. 
tune into this and your hosts' blogs every friday to be inspired and to inspire.

fitness friday has been really great at holding me accountable to health, and keeping me pretty much off of the crazy train of perpetual yo-yo dieting. unfortunately, i'm pretty sure it hasn't made me any saner.



i have been "on a diet" since i was 5 years old. virtually none of them have worked in the past 21 years, but i always have to consciously stop myself from dialing the number in the infomercial.


i don't hate many things more than i hate running, yet i keep signing up for races/runs in the hopes that one day i can become a runner...

...except my legs are braced with laziness. and defeat.

if i wasn't trying to be healthy, i can't say with 100% assurance that i would not consume absolutely every granule of sugar in the world...

... all in one sitting.

please tell me i'm not alone...
any health/fitness confessions?
