Face Base

A while ago I wrote about how my skin started rejecting products with silicone in them, specifically the ingredient dimethicone (I know this isn’t the only silicone ingredient but it seems to be the one my skin reacts most to). I don’t know why this was, or what caused it, but I had to adjust my whole beauty routine, including make up.

Tea

I am a HUGE tea lover. I have been drinking it almost my whole life, and its a huge part of my family bonding process. 

You know you’ve made it in when you are offered a cup of tea. 

When I am with my family I can drink up to 8 cups of english breakfast tea a day. One before breakfast, one with breakfast, one for morning tea, one with lunch, one with afternoon tea, one before dinner and one after dinner, finishing the day with one before bed.

Anathema

AHHHH! Do you ever have that moment when you are trying to remember a word in your head and cannot. for the life. of you. remember. it. ?

I had that moment not a moment ago, sitting down to write a post on glossy make up. Now, I’m not completing that post as it was going to be more sharing inspiration pictures from Pinterest, and I feel like we have moved on from that, and its a little bit lazy.

Mental

You know, sometimes I feel quite mental. 

In the throws of a panic attack, I am at such a heightened state that everything looks and feels a bit technicolour. 

However other times, everything seems quite normal, but sometimes I wonder what is actually real and what isn’t. I’m not talking hallucinations or anything, just sometimes feeling things are a little off.

Weight

So I am considered over weight. 

After years of medical issues more serious than my weight, I am not afraid to admit I have a little too much weight on this frame. 

And this is where I promptly fall foul of the weight loss industry and how it interacts with the medical sector.
