I’m not a girly girl. I rarely wear make-up, I still have a full tube of mascara that I bought in 2012. I get lazy blow drying my hair so that it’s always half damp when I leave for work. Jeans with heels instead of flats is my day-to-night metamorphosis. BUT I’m still a girl trying to retain an ounce of sex appeal while traveling with my boyfriend, Mike. Luckily, he seems to prefer shorts to skirts and hiking boots to heels but here are the five battles I fought and lost.
