I read a lot of blogs, articles and watched lots of videos while preparing to go natural. The biggest problem I had with these blogs and YouTube channels was trying to figure out some of the terms and abbreviations being used. It got to a point i started giving them full meanings in my head but sometimes, I simply just move on to the next!
During the cause of my short journey, I have learnt a few of them, am still learning though but I thought I should share the little have learnt. Feel free to add yours in the comment section..
