Shaking Things Up

I would consider myself a serial dater. What is that you ask? Well, it’s someone who is constantly dating because (1) they don’t want to be lonely, (2) they have found someone new and/or better, (3) they literally can’t function without having someone around, or (4) you just kind of click with someone once a relationship is over and it kind of happens where now you are in a new relationship!

For me, I would say it’s number 4. Over the years, I literally haven’t come up for air…. Sorry that’s graphic…not in the way you’re thinking.  What I mean is that I haven’t really let myself be single in between dating. I just kind of moved on to the next convenient person (that sounds rude). To clarify I never used the guys, I literally just clicked with someone right away and thought…’what the heck, why not?’


But the past year and a half, I have been single…hold for applause.

This is the first time in a long time that I have been single and it has been freaking awesome. I don’t have to report to anyone. I can sleep on whatever side of the bed I want. I can also eat whatever I feel like. I’m free!

Don’t get me wrong, I miss sleeping next to someone (sometimes, preferably during winter).  Oh and I miss someone being there when times are tough. Yea, I have friends but it’s different when you are in a relationship with someone. It’s a different level of emotional support.

For right now, I’m just going to be single…and see how this plays out. I’m not trying to find someone nor am I rushing to get married. If the stuff happens, then it happens.

My point is, being a serial dater, like me, it doesn’t leave you any room to grow as a person. How are you supposed to ever find someone when you don’t even know who you are or what you want?  Being independent and single is a choice that I think everyone should make at some point in their life. It really helps you find out more about yourself and what you see in a future husband and/or wife!

Also, for people who have made it this far in the post, I will be doing a giveaway in the next couple of days on my Facebook page! SHhhhhh! So check out my Facebook Page here for more details….soon!

Makeup for the Helpless

I learned a few things about makeup today.

Number 1: I suck at applying makeup. Like I’m freaking awful. Those how to videos also suck because, they don’t have a correction for shaky hands or someone who has no clue what highlighter and/or contouring is….

Number 2: Once I learned how to amateurly use highlighter, that shit looks pretty good. But again, I am a amateur.

Number 3: It will make your face look all dewy and shit. Like you just stepped out of the rain, but you’re not wet and your face is just glowing.

Side Note: I haven’t gone out in public just yet, so I’m not sure how it looks to others and that in itself will be extremely comical!

I don’t really have a point for this post, but I really just wanted to share that I am growing up and makeup game is getting better, slowly, but better!

Look out for pictures!

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.

Help

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