Well, it has definitely been a hot minute since I’ve updated this ol’ thing. It’s funny how you start getting into the swing of things then life has a way of swerving you a different direction. I will say the last couple of weeks haven’t been too easy. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it here on this platform previously but my best friend is, well now I should say was, pregnant. The last two weeks she’s been in the hospital due to complications with her pregnancy. I don’t want to get into too much detail but unfortunately, due to those complications, she had to have a C-Section on Super Bowl Sunday and give birth to my niece. 12 weeks early.
On top of that, my baby Lillith Rose, aka Lil’ Bean chewed open a mass she has had since I’ve rescued her and needs to have surgery to remove the mass. Her bloodwork is clean, she’s very healthy but it is still very nerve-racking for me, considering she is somewhere between 14 and 15 years old, I’m guessing anyway. She’s my baby. Unfortunately, she was suppose to have the surgery Friday morning, but due to the great “Snowmaggedon” of Seattle… that hasn’t even happened, the appointment had to be canceled.
On top of that, I’ve been screwed over at work more times than I can count, overworked and underappreciated but honestly, that’s nothing fucking new. I’ve been super stressed out, have been staying up later than I’d like then waking up early. I’m just exhausted, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
So what better way to deal with my emotions, besides eating which I’ve been doing a lot of and not working out? Playing with makeup, looking at makeup, talking about makeup. Today, I’m going over all the products I have managed to use up in the month of January. It doesn’t mean I started and finished these products in the month of January, just completely used them up in January. Does that make sense? Let’s get into it!
