Alright, so I have gotten mildly addicted to the show, Shameless.  I know it’s been out for a while but I’m usually too busy to watch TV.  And I also prefer to binge watch shows when they come out on Netflix.

For those of you who don’t know, Shameless is about dysfunctional family, and the a man named Frank, who is a single father to 6 children.  He is also a drunk who is never home.  So the children essentially have to learn to take care of themselves.

This show is jam packed with humor, controversy and betrayal.

If you’re anything like me, you sometimes enjoy grotesque humor but there are some scenes in this show that made me cringe or get utterly embarrassed for the actors, and that is damn near impossible for me!

I have talked with a few people that have said that “finally, a show where it presents a real family.”  I’m not so sure about that statement, but these scenarios are drastic!  I guess that’s why the title is so perfect!!!

Have you watched the show? What’s your favorite episode/scene?  What other shows do you like?


Hey Skin, We Need to Talk…

(Update as of 09/09/2016: I have started using Rodan and Fields Unblemish and am currently on week 3 and will keep you posted on the results!)

The Struggle

So, I’m in my late 20’s and I’m struggling with mild adult acne…well sometimes mild. I don’t get it. I literally can’t control my skin. I have used so many different products, as well as changing my diet.  I wash my face daily and I always make sure to take my makeup off before bed or before/after the gym. I also try to go as long as possible without putting any makeup on.

Stop That

My skin wasn’t this bad when I was a teenager. It’s so unnerving. I remember it being such a big deal in High School. “Oh my gosh, I hope no one stares at my giant pimple!” or “there’s no way I’m going to school today with this thing on my face!”  I remember those days…

It doesn’t bother me as bad as it use to or so I thought (I guess I wouldn’t be writing this if it didn’t)….It just keeps getting worse. I’ve been to a dermatologist and lost all hope once my face got scarred from the doc. So I gave up.

The List

Here is the list of products I’ve tried:

  • Dermatologist (prescription meds)
  • Neutrogena
  • Clean and Clear
  • Aveeno
  • Dermalogica*
  • Proactiv
  • Boots No. 12
  • Ulta Face Line
  • Mac Face line
  • Philosophy
  • Clinque
  • Murad

So…here is the short list.  The only real results I’ve had was dermalogica but on the flip side of that, I swear my skin gets use to products…anyway, that lasted a few months.


So here I am reaching out to this wonderful community! Any suggestions? Prayers? Haha! What has or hasn’t worked for you?
