Anyway, for the past few days, I've been focusing on trying to fix my skin. My debut is in less than a couple weeks, so I was a little stressed that I'd have to go out all gross looking! But I've figured out the reason for my recent breakouts (the lotion I was using). Fortunately, when I went to the store to find a new lotion, I found some aloe vera gel! This stuff is amazing at healing skin, plus it has cucumber extracts which will help keep my skin cool and reduce heat bumps (those little bumps you may get when it's really hot out, caused by crystallized sweat and clogged pores, ew). I also got a really nice clay mask that sucked up all the excess oil my skin was producing. I'm going to be doing Bubbi's apple cider mask and toner tonight, to lighten my acne scars and help aid in the healing. The scars on my face have pretty much healed though, so the aloe is doing it's job! I've got super combination skin (IE, where it's oily, it's really oily, and where it's dry, it's really dry) so it helps in keeping them both in check as well. I just have to remember to put on a lot more than I'm used to. My skin eats this stuff up!
We got one more item for my room today, a nightstand. Grandma got a TV stand too, but it won't be coming in for a few months. She said she'll be getting me the full length mirror I've been wanting. The room is still far from complete, however. I still need a shelf for my crafting supplies.
Here are the pictures I promised forever ago, lol.
Ahhh, it's so nice to be able to see all of my things at a glance~!
I went through a lot of my clothing as I folded them away, to see what I'll continue to wear, and what I'm definitely giving away. In the end, there wasn't that much to give away, but I still filled a trash bag with some. There were a few things that made me go "Oh, but what if I'll definitely need to wear it??" but when I thought about wearing them, all I did was cringe. Many of the things I gave away were either too small or too bulky for my frame.
Also, now that my bed is over near the vent where centipedes like to appear, I came up with a way to solve it. I just taped some mesh over the vent! Why didn't I think of that before?
The next day, I got my teeth cleaned. I haven't been to a dentist in forever! I don't have health insurance anymore, because I'm not in school and I can't afford it myself (not that I could before, lol) so I thought it was out of the question, but one day my grandma just said that she set up an appointment for it. My teeth look so nice now~!
Some days after that, I finally gained the courage to put my contacts in... one eye, lol! Still, I managed to do it without harming my eye this time (I put it in the same eye too), and it only took a few tries to get it in. I didn't have a hard time positioning it either like the other. This time, I wore my E.O.S Candy Pink lenses.
PinkyParadise. Good place to buy Diamond Lashes which are all the rave right now. (that's not where I got these lashes though, I got these off of Ebay for around a dollar, lol.)
I have to postpone my Pretty Cute review, what with my face still in recovery, so I don't want to do anything to it just yet. But at least this time, it doesn't look like it's going back to its troublesome ways. At the rate it's going, I think I'll be back to normal by Monday, and just in time, too!
