Perfection is pointless
Wednesday, April 02, 2014
I amaze myself. Often in bad ways. Have uppped my workouts and limited intake but in my quest to 'lool like' I belong in first class on the airplane, went into an ordering frenzy determined to try out every high end foundation, etc., I'd ever wanted to (But being stuck in the sticks and with housebound mom, can't go play with in person). I ordered EVERYTHING (and just guessed at the shades, bad idea) and in a fit of temper over Loreal Voluminous seeming to change it's formula...ordered every high and low end mascara I've ever heard of. (Hint: Benefit's' Better then Sex' mascara..isn't. Unless you are doing it wrong. ;) Maybe it's my eyelashes changing but a quick coat or two of Voluminous USED to make mine look like false eyelashes, thick and long. None of these cheap or high end even come close. WHY Loreal? WHY did you have to change! I loved you! lol
Fast forward to 2 days ago. After trying on every combo of primer/foundation I could and washing my face to change it frequently for m ore then a week straight, I suggested also to my husband he try the Neutrogene home microdermabrasion I'd read about, after he mentioned he'd like to have that done somday. Of course, I used it. (Why wouldn't I?) Then mixed up my own Vitamin C serum I'd seen on youtube and slathered up with that. That day I had also changed to a 'lean shake' protein mix from GNC, eaten newly purchased strawberries that looked like htey had been grown at a nuclear power plant, started an acai 'master cleanse' mix weird drink from GNC also...and something else I can't remember that was new for that day. Woke up the next morning looking like I had a severe case of the measles!!! SO much for looking real 'classy' next week for the flight! I"ll be lucky if they let me onboard! Probably think I have the plague! I can't begin to guess which change (or combo of) could have triggered it. (all of the above no doubt).
That also derailed me from working out as I wasn't sure if that would irritate my skin further (part way through the day it started to itch and I had to keep rewashing it). So I think I blew my chance at dropping some pounds in a stupid attempt to capture some 'high end' look to fly away on vacation!!?? HUH??? Dumb,, dumb, dumb. Trying to impress people is a one way street to a karmic beyotch slap.
SO.....alll of my consumer orgy spending resulted in looking the worst I"ve ever looked.
Now I get to pack up and return all this stuff and it is DEPRESSING!!! Should never have gone down that rabbit hole!
And I was magically drawn to a pair of earrings by Alexis Bittar that I didn't even like until I tried them on, they are lucite but they appeared to be 'glowing' when I tried them on.....and now all I can see in them is a ladies va-jay-jay. lol
So errr..what was my point? Oh! Appreciate what you have and don't go chasing after perfection, because it's all a big CON to get yo' money. My face and skin were actually perfectly fine and NOW I look like THIS! lol Ah well...never mind. As long as Hawaii doesn't get washed away in the tusnami from Chili...I am OUTTA here! :)
