My hair at home in the morning vs. my hair after facing the wind and then working under an air conditioning vent for several hours. I forgot to bring the little bottle of hair serum that I usually lightly apply in the afternoon ☺ I confounded a couple of my colleagues because they thought I went and got yet another cut done and I told them that I just have a better hair diffuser now. It is still the same cut that I got just before my birthday 😅 #themanyhairlooksofari #curlymode #girlswhocode #dotnetdev #dotnetdeveloper #careergirl #girlswithglasses #curlymodeactivate #curlyhair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #transvengers #blondehair #shorthairstyles #bobhairstyles #bobhaircut #lgbt #shorthair #officeoutfitoftheday #twitchaffiliate #linkinmyprofile

Yesterday was a #poolpartysaturday and it was filled with having a lot of laughs and spending time with great friends. Some of whom will be moving away soon. Make the most of your time with friends and family. It can be hard in your present circumstances and in the midst of the daily concerns of life to remember that change is constant and not everyone that is a part of your life now can always be there. Your time interacting with other people in celebration is precious, make the most of it. #getoutthereandhavefun #letyourfriendsknowyoucare #girlslikeus #swimwear #summertime #poolparty #curlymode #curlyhair #bikini #shorthairstyles #shorthair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #transvengers #blondehair #curlymodeactivate

Just a couple of random shots from my camera roll from the past couple of weeks. I’m still glad I cut my hair shorter. I do not like to spend a ton of time on my hair in the morning and a bob cut certainly lends itself to that! Naturally curly hair is wonderful if you love your curls and don’t live in an area with lots of humidity. However, my area of Illinois is basically former swamp/marsh land. There is a reason I prefer to style my hair straight! 😁 #randomshots #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #omgnoglasses #blowoutstyles #hairbob #bobhairstyles #bobhaircut #lgbt #shorthairstyles #shorthair #twitchaffiliate

Thank you so much to @squeeekin for doing a complimentary correction on my pink highlights that did not take well last time and faded faster than expected. It looks amazing and I really needed the lift the salon appointment gave me today. A lot is suddenly going wrong around me and money is super tight due to car repairs and catching up on other bills. I have had to cancel a bunch of plans with friends and put off prescription refills the past week due to sudden financial constraints. I am no stranger to having to shift things around and still make ends meet somehow and pay for the things my kids need. My daughter and I did essentials only grocery shopping this week and I made some killer sloppy joes and sriracha chicken for meals (with lots of leftovers) so my kids still ate well when they were with me. I will get back ahead of everything financially soon. I work too hard not to. #stickwithit #igotthis #gottakeepsmiling #positivity #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #shorthairstyles #hairbob #bobhaircut #maybeishouldbuyalottoticket #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

These images are exactly 3 years apart. I do work hard to stay in shape and keep that feeling of renewed life I had in the photo on the left (despite the difficult circumstances and major stresses I had at the time). At the time (20 months into transition), I was trying to figure out how to buy the condo I live in now (so my kids didn’t have to sleep on the floor in my one bedroom apartment), while still in the middle of a divorce, and thinking any surgery was years away as my company insurance plan still excluded all #transhealthcare. So, I was paying out of pocket for what little I could do to maintain my transition. Yet, look at that smile I still sported on the left. I knew I would get to the day depicted on the right.. today. Maintaining a positive and forward looking outlook is so essential to staying healthy and mentally strong during transition. I am physically and mentally stronger than the version of me on the left. I am also better at relationships, friendships, and just at being happy with who I am. All of this took concerted effort over time, while maintaing a positive view of what I had already made it through. Your circumstances compared to where you are trying to go may seem impossible. Your outlook influences so much of your eventual success. You will get there! If you can’t see past the forest of challenges have friends lift you on their shoulders! ❤💛🧡💜💙💚 (p.s. I find it funny how I just recently decided to go back to this hair length after all this time!) #nofilter #transitiontuesday #transformationtuesday #positivity #girlslikeus #transvengers #transpositivity #glowup #thisiswhattranslookslike #TransIsBeautiful #pride #lgbt #changes #hairchange #brunettetoblonde

You would not know it from these pictures, but I’m still quite sick. The mornings are filled with coughing fits and it is difficult to sleep at night. During the day I feel okay though and the coughing subsides. I was able to get my hair styled by a friend at my favorite salon this weekend. It was a complimentary style for my birthday (it was the 18th). I love it! Nothing like a salon visit to boost my mood 😊 I’m hoping I wake up tomorrow feeling much better as it’s time to head back to the office. #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #shorthair #shorthairstyles #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #TransIsBeautiful #happypridemonth #happypride #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

I have been sick most of the week. Rather than a nice extended vacation after my Vegas trip, I have been taking care of both of my kids and myself and sleeping as much as I can (all of us got sick). I also had to take my car in for emergency repairs yesterday. I had a brake hose fail and a stuck caliper which was locking up my front brakes that I had just paid to replace before my vacation 😥. The front left side brake pads completely melted! At least that part was under warranty but it still cost a ton to fix the rest. All together.. this has been a sucky week! I wish I could go back to the moment depicted in this photo. I was at a table at the Rock House surrounded by friends and celebrating 3 birthdays (one of which was my own). Regardless, I am finally feeling a little better and it is summer here finally. Time to pick myself up and start enjoying everything the Chicago area and its suburbs has during the summer! #clubwear #clubbing #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #happypridemonth #happypride #TransIsBeautiful #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

I have noticed in some comments and even mentions in posts on Insta from other people that there may be questions as to how we all were included in this trip. Let’s talk about how this group formed and what the transvengers hashtag that Mika made so popular is all about. 
We’re like any other group of friends that came together organically. I can only tell you from my perspective as to how the group unfolded. I interacted with @suddenlysamantha and @mikaelaville first. We connected over the fact that we three are #transparents. In a very short time, we were offering support to one another and also just chatted about things friends chat about. Sam and I became Facebook friends and eventually she also asked to interview me on one of her Instagram Live sessions. Mika and I conversed mostly through Instagram but then were also texting and joking around with each other a lot on other media. Mika often would stop by on my twitch streams and harass me and try to make me blush on camera😊 The other instagrammers in the group (@thecaseyblake and @itsemily247) became friends with either Mika or Sam and again over time got to know each other enough to want to get together. We’re not some exclusive club that was invited to Vegas based on some sort of ranking. We are a group of friends that found connections and support and those connections spilled into further connections until we all now consider each other friends. How else do you think we were comfortable sharing hotel rooms with each other? I for one do not share hotel rooms with strangers. My point is, we became long distance friends over time and wanted to meet each other & the results were great. I consider all of these amazing women close friends now and they know I’ve got their back and I know I can count on them. 
I encourage all of you to start your own groups and once you feel comfortable  and want to meet face to face in some city anywhere on the globe, set it up! Mika has said many times that the #transvengers hashtag is for all trans people, not just transwomen. Have a gathering! Use the hastag for your posts! This is not an exclusive club! Love you all! Transvengers Assemble! #whosnext #transvengersassemble

When you bring 5 instagrammers together you tend to have a lot of pictures available 😅 It was soooooo much fun to celebrate my birthday with @mikaelaville and @itsemily247 who were both born on the day before my birthday (although the decade may have been different, lol). As you can see, @suddenlysamantha and @thecaseyblake are also in this particular photo set with more to come featuring them as well 😊 I consider myself very fortunate to call all of these amazing women my friends. #transvengers #transvengersassemble #overheremikalol #triplegirlbirthdaycelebration #girlslikeus #crossover #TransIsBeautiful #lgbt #HappyPride #crossoverepisode #happypridemonth🌈 #lasvegas #vegasbaby #clubwear #groupdinner #rockhouselasvegas

Managed to still pack in a little more fun my last night in Vegas. @itsemily247 coached me a little on video poker with @mikaelaville cheering me on. At one point, I also chased down and found an older lady that left her rewards card at the machine next to me. She thanked me profusely, but I’m just one of the many friendly neighborhood #transvengers out there all over the globe working to make the world a better place 😉 Also.. this is my 500th Instagram post!

Happy Birthday to me (hey it’s still my birthday week)! @mikaelaville was posing and taking selfies off screen while I captured this one 😉 See my earlier posts for a video with us both and one featuring @itsemily247 #blondeonarooftop #girlslikeus #transvengers #TransIsBeautiful #lgbt #HappyPride #happypridemonth🌈 #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #lasvegas #vegasbaby #twopieceset #maidenarianaisinvegasbaby #blondehair #girlswithglasses #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday! 😊 It was a great birthday. I got to go shopping with my daughter, and swimming with both my kids.

Happy Birthday to me! On this day of the year, waaaaay in the past.. this girl was born. Though she had to navigate the world feeling different for most of her life, she was able to claw her way out, past the facade the world constantly told her was more important than being connected to her own soul. I am Ariana, I am an #outandproud #pansexual #transparent and on my birthday I wish all #lgbt hearts out there a very #happypridemonth🌈 !

My birthday is the 18th, but this past Friday I was able to celebrate it with a large group of friends. Moving to a new town where I knew no one during the early days of my transition was very difficult. After spending the first 5 months of that time building my confidence to venture out and make connections.. I declared 2016 to be the year of Ari. I began going to meetups to find people I could connect with. 3+ years later and I am able to fill a cidery bar with an amazingly beautiful variety of friends that I could only imagine the day I moved so long ago. To my friends, I love you all! Thank you for the joy you all bring to this girl. To those afraid to venture into a scary new change.. you really can, just don’t do it alone for too long! #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #friendsforlife #friendship

Soooooo… I had the guts to do this.. happy birthday to me! My birthday is actually the 18th but last night was a party with a bunch of my friends. So I went for a new cut. (Party pics to be posted later today or in an insta story) It was time to keep my dyed hair more healthy, due to the long length I had I was experiencing some breakage and wanted a break from the maintenance for the summer. I also had been clipping it up lately at about the length I thought I wanted it. For a while, I tested this out both with it straightened and curly. This helped me to be sure I was ready for this cut. It is a stacked bob style and I am in love with the results! Thank you to @katia970 for the amazing cut and as always thanks to @squeeekin for the gorgeous highlights. I love everyone at @zanosalons #newhair #stackedbob #bighairchange #transvengers #nogutsnoglory #girlslikeus #girlswithglasses #peekaboohighlights #summerdress #flowerdress #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #blowoutstyles #stackedbobcut #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth #happypride #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

I don’t usually post #transformationtuesday posts because there are maybe less than 10 pictures in existence of me as an adult pre-transition without either my kids or other people in the photo. Even then, those that do exist have already been posted on my blog or website or in articles I have published such as those on HuffPost. I’ve decided to begin participating more often though by showing more of my early transition photos in comparison to now. On the left, I was 2 years into my transition and fresh off of yet another laser facial hair removal appointment. The right was from this past Sunday when I went to the #AuroraPrideParade. In both photos, I am feeling like myself, feeling strong, and like a general #badass for living as my #realself It gets better! #girlslikeus #transvengers #TransIsBeautiful #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #transgender #wontbeerased #timeline #girlswithglasses #myhairtransitionedtoo

I went to the Aurora Pride parade today with some of my friends. My friend Colleen dressed as BatGirl and was stopped and asked for multiple pictures including one with the mayor, lol. This is only the second year Aurora has held a pride parade. It became the first city besides Chicago in Illinois to host one. There were only around half a dozen protestors I saw there and their idiotic signs were blocked by people with umbrellas and their voices were drowned out. All in all, it was a wonderful event. This girl needs a nap! ❤💛💚💙💜 #girlslikeus #transvengers #theforceisstrongwiththisone #aurorapride #aurorapride #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #lgbtq🌈 #blondehair #blowoutstyles #girlswithglasses #peekaboohighlights #pinkpeekaboohighlights

I feel they are a good length now. My color and highlights will be updated very soon as well.

Thank you for 10K followers Instagram. That’s amazing. I’m humbled at the number of people that choose to follow my life. As I look at out at you all in this post, I have something I want to say. My social media presence on various platforms has always been about showing through my modest successes and growing happiness that #transgender people are human beings who can overcome #hatred #bigotry #stigma #socialmediaattacks #discrimination & more to just be themselves and soar and defy and live and love and win.

Many people that follow me must not carefully read my hashtags and once in a while send me shocked messages such as “wait, you’re trans? What does that mean for you exactly?” (an actual recent dm I recieved) #waityouaretrans

The stigma of being attracted to, wanting to date, or loving a transgender woman, causes fear and shame in far too many people (not just men). You are attracted to us. You should be. We are all pretty amazing people and over time we find our strength, confidence, and a power which emanates from us and translates to a beauty flowing from within that attracts people of all persuasions. I get it. Among several other gender classifications, I date transgender women too because we are the bomb. The difference is, I will proudly proclaim that I date transgender women and far too many people out there keep their attraction hidden, are wrongly ashamed of it and will even attack or kill to keep it a secret. There have been 3 deaths in 1 week.

Stop this nonsense. Accept your love of transgender people as normal because it is. Then, decide to protect us by no longer staying silent when friends or family throw out disgusting messages of #transhate or poke fun at a friend who hits on a girl that “might be trans.” Abolish the use of terms in your friend group that demean us or make us seem less than human. Tell your mates to cut it out and that you think it’s wrong to hate on people. It’s as simple as that, acknowledging we are people!

Let’s call this my #transvengers test shot. I vanquished a foe today. At least temporarily. I was up until 4am coughing up a storm and driven to some tears because of my extreme fatigue and very sore throat. I finally fell asleep and slept until around 11am. I know what my body needs to beat a cold and thanks to forcing myself to go grocery shopping last night I had what I needed. I started the day with some strong coffee, a large banana, and almond milk vanilla yogurt with some crispy light strawberry granola and raw almonds mixed in. I also drank some water and then prepped my bike for a ride. It was 73 and partly sunny and I had to get out there. With being sick, I wasn’t sure I’d have any energy left once I hauled my bike down from my second story condo. I got out there though and I rode. With all of the recent rain my normal trail was flooded out, so I decided to ride some grass and rock trails I had never taken. They were challenging but fun! My ride was only 4 miles today unlike my usual 9 to 11 mile range, but it was just as challenging with the terrain and so much more rewarding considering the circumstances. This pic is from just after my ride. The endorphins made me feel ready to take on the world and my cold feels absent at least for now. Also.. @mikaelaville keeps challenging us with the #tanktopwars hashtag. Well I’m officially starting the #sportsbrawars hashtag. Who’s next? 😘 #girlslikeus #coldremedy #inspiration #getoutthere #pinkpeekaboohighlights #pigtails #omgnoglasses #blondehair #workout #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Welp! I’m officially sick. I had a temp of 99.8 today and took some more dayquil. I slept away most of this beautiful afternoon and I am so bummed to be missing nice weather. After sleeping most of the afternoon, I was starving. So, I perked myself up as best I could and headed to my local target for groceries. Just getting dressed and doing my makeup made me feel a little better. I almost convinced myself I’m fine. A target employee was going out to get carts and saw me walking up. He told me a really bad joke that I don’t remember but I cough/laughed quite loudly to it. I think I scared him!

I’m still fighting off a head cold.. what did you give me @mikaelaville ? 😁 jk, I think with after coming back to 4 days of constant rain, flooded rivers, and very high humidity after being in LA.. my body is like WTH let’s go back to that nice place! 😂 Regardless of how I have been feeling, work is back to a normal pace, and after a little extra rest I am ready to go grab some sushi with friends tonight. I also got to meet my cousin for lunch today. She is up visiting from Florida and hasn’t seen me since before I had been able to just be me. It was wonderful to see her and we had a nice time. 🧡 #girlslikeus #girlswithglasses #peekaboohighlights #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #skaterdress #transvengers #girlswhocode #oddanglefutonshot

Ever get back from a vacation and feel like the world is punishing you for taking time for yourself? The world exploded in on me last night and today. We had issues with a rollout at work and I was up until almost 1am to help with that. Then there was fallout and catching up today because of that. I was making some uncharacteristic mistakes and feeling stupid while trying to find one last issue. Also, my kids were here and I could not give them the attention I wanted at lunch and dinner time after missing them last week due to catching up on work. During a conference call, I heard someone accidentally misgender me on the phone. No wonder, my voice was stressed and tired. It’s been a long time since that has happened. I just wanted to hang up and cry. On top of all that, I just really want to be back in LA and run away from it all for just a short while.. I miss the feeling of being stress free and happy. Arrgh. I do feel better now though. I needed to decompress and got to go to the salon for a blowout on my hair. It needed it after traveling. I also streamed again finally on twitch and said hi to some friends there. My night ended well and I am feeling better but what a day. #thisgirlistired #girlslikeus #missingla #roughdayatwork #hanginginthere #girlswhocode #needafollowupvacation #nofilter #omgnoglasses #pinkpeekaboohighlights #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana #blondehair #blowoutstyles #transvengers

Alas, the time has come my friends to say goodbye to LA and also to the #adorkablewonder @mikaelaville 😫 I can’t complain too much though as I am told I get to count her as one of my #friendsforlife 😊 For those who wonder what she is like IRL.. she is just as #adorkable and hilarious and as wonderful as you think she is. She is absolutely her authentic self in her videos and posts. I am going to miss spending time with her tremendously. She made me laugh harder than I think I ever have and even taught me some things about myself as well.

Having celebrating Easter yesterday with family, I went on an hour long 9 mile bike ride today and had a pinecone fall a foot from my head, met some bluegill at my favorite Forest Preserve, saw a huge 3.5 to 4 foot Great Blue Heron up close, and some black birds lurking in trees that looked like vultures. Oh and I swallowed a bug and also caught several in my cleavage. 😬 It was a blast ☺ After a much needed shower and a little prep time for a very exciting trip I’m taking this week, it is GoT tonight with friends! #girlslikeus #cyclinglife #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #pigtails #specializedmountainbike

I had a wonderful weekend hanging out with my son at a gaming convention in Milwaukee. We got to enjoy table top gaming and just hanging out in a decent hotel. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to be able to just sit with him and play games and have him high five me with a humongous grin on his face. He rocked the strategy and has such a sharp mind. I freaking love my kids so much. I am kind of wiped out after all the socializing there and then driving us back in a snow storm. Thankfully there was the GoT premiere tonight. I hope you all had a great weekend too! After all of this traveling, I will finally get back to steaming on Twitch. #girlslikeus #layingdowncausearineedstorest #stripedsweater #girlswithglasses #twitchaffiliate

In my last post, I teased about explaining “the view.” Well, the view was from an exclusive social club high on a giant hill overlooking all of Birmingham Alabama. Last week during my trip, I was invited along with my team to “The Club” as a thank you for all of our hard work. This place looks like the home of the costume designer from The Incredibles and is steeped in history. We were told that the dance floor that inspired the floor from Saturday Night Fever was in another room there. After an all day meeting, the food and drinks we enjoyed along with the amazing view were all just exquisite! #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #movingonup #careergirl #nofilter #pinkpeekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #blowoutstyles #blondehair #houndstoothdress #summerdress #mirrorshot

Birmingham AL Work Trip notes from Monday 04/01/19 – our flight was on time and pleasant enough. We checked into the Embassy Suites by Hilton and I was kind of blown away at how the hotel reminded me of every nice hotel in an 80s RomCom movie. The rooms are all suites so they are huge. They all have a courtyard window and external window. The courtyard was awesome and there are free drinks for two hours everyday! I enjoyed 2 Red Devils, then we all went out for dinner at Soho Social. Our waitress was great and the food was delicious. They sent a bun with my order by accident, but no big deal.. I just pulled it off. It was then time to get some sleep because we would be up early for our quarterly planning all day meeting. #girlslikeus #girlswhocode #nofilter #pinkpeekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #blowoutstyles #blondehair #careergirl

It was a blast! On both nights.. I was approached by someone at a bar. 😲 What was a rare thing is becoming more common. Still getting used to it though 😊 Today is a get stuff done day.

I think the highlights are more noticeable since their current color matches the flowers on my dress 💐.

Last night I got a conditioning treatment done along with a blowout on my hair. It feels great and returned some of the moisture winter and styling has robbed it of. I then managed to fit in a stream of Rocket League play (twitch.tv/maidenariana) that lasted over 3 hours. Not bad for a work night 😉 I hope you all have a great night. #twitchaffiliate #nofilter #hairconditioningtreatment #freshhairstyle #girlslikeus #girlswithglasses #smile #twitchgirls #twitchstreamer

Having a busy but fun week! Time to catch up with you all.. Tuesday I got up early with my kids for my son’s orthodontic appt. I had a ton of energy that day and after working from home, I decided to knock out my taxes that evening while my daughter watched a recording of the Oscars next to me. I finished the federal filing and just need to wrap up my state taxes later. This is the first time I filed taxes including earnings directly from Twitch. It’s fun to see a 1099-misc form from Twitch Interactive with your name on it. I guess I am a pro streamer now?! 😏😂 btw my channel is twitch.tv/maidenariana Anyway, after all of that, I went to bed feeling like I lived two days in one! Stay tuned for another post tonight.. #taxtime #girlslikeus #hairupdo #girlswithglasses #twitchaffiliate

I had a chance to get my hair and nails done last night and pick out a couple of new winter outfits though. I am tired but enjoying the holiday season so far 😊 #girlslikeus #nofilter #girlswhocode

I had a great Friday. I completed all of my assigned sprint work for the week, met an old work friend for coffee to catch up, then had dinner with my kids. While they hung out and did their thing with friends online, I finally got a chance to test out a bunch of old hard drives for my retro 486 build (to be featured again on stream soon – twitch.tv/maidenariana). The winner is a 360mb Western Digital Caviar drive. 😊 #girlswhocode #girlslikeus #nofilter

My hair is growing like a weed y’all! I was so busy working from home ever since the moment I got up today that I had no time to get ready. Then, tonight I was working on stream related stuff (twitch.tv/maidenariana). Now that I’m finally relaxing this evening I’m noticing my hair is again reaching between the lower part of my shoulder blades on my back. Loving it! #PJWorkFromHomeDay #pajamaday #nomakeup #girlswhocode #girlslikeus

A reminder today that no person on the face of this planet should have the ability to define who you are other than you. Don’t give others the ability to harm you by letting their lack of acceptance, outright disapproval, or downright hateful words enter into your opinion of yourself. As social media projects warmth and familial love today, I personally know that is not what many feel on holidays like today. Rest in the knowledge that you are a unique creation worth every ounce of love and acceptance that hardened hearts may withhold from you. Look in the mirror and love what you see, because that person looking back at you knows you and loves you and is strong enough to not conform to what others selfishly demand. #girlslikeus #selfacceptance #selflove #TransIsBeautiful
