I just discovered that it’s only been 9 months since my last post, not the year that I thought. Yay, me. I’m not sure where I plan to go with the blog this round, but it’ll probably be less structured and involve more rambling in the vein of this post. Read at your own peril of boredom.
So, lately, I have been spending a lot of time at /r/SkincareAddiction and /r/MakeupAddiction. I’ve been really good about a facial cleansing regimen, shaving my legs regularly, and putting on makeup just for fun. I mean, not like I go out much, which will be explained in more detail later.
As a result of returning to my makeup obsession and realizing nearly all of my old makeup probably had evolved thriving colonies of bacteria, I replaced most everything I had spent hundreds of dollars on with < $150 of drug store stuff. It hurt a little, but having new stuff to play with made me happy. Right off the bat, I put up this before & after and received this constructive criticism. I was happy with the results, although I will be handing off the eye palette to my sister, as her under eye circles are more blue than mind.
The down side of this is, given that I am not working, I am now on a “no buy” until August 1st. Le sigh.
As for the not working thing… Well… I am on disability and in the process of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance. It’s scary and sometimes hard to swallow, but, while it’s mental health so not really physically apparent, I am legitimately disabled. So, hopefully that works out.
If you made your way through this post, congratulations! There’ll be more soon. Probably. Maybe. I hope.
May the Fourth be with you and yours!
