Today my darlings has been quite the mix. It was a rather exciting weekend actually. My mother came up so I got to spend some time with her. As I haven’t seen her in quite some time it was very nice. There was over eating though, mostly because I was paying more attention to my company than what i was actually eating. I’ll admit, I grazed more than I should have. It just reminds me that i need to remember not to do that over the upcoming holidays.
Admittedly I did wake up this morning dreaming of salad.
There was a lot of rich food over the weekend and a salad sounds super fabulous. Actually we are having salad for dinner tonight. I think mine might end up being on the plain side because it really is the fresh lettuce and spinach that I am craving.
I also woke up today with itchy watery eyes and a runny nose. The heater turned on for the first time last night so i think that may be part of it. The other part is that the outside temps actually dropped to autumn like temperatures in the night. We went from about 70 degrees to the mid-50s. Drops like that always set off my nose. There have also been random bouts of sneezing.
So makeup today was a bit of a bust. I actually tried some Grace and Stella under eye patches to take down some of the puffiness. They are actually some of the best for allergy puffiness by the way, at least among the ones I’ve tried. I have no affiliation with them I just really like the way those patches work. Unfortunately I actually sneezed them off. which was not really very helpful.
So Instead I have my Jade Roller in the fridge and periodically take it out to use under my eyes instead. I may have new makeup I want to try, but today is not the day to try it.
I did get something fun in the mail today though. If you’ve been following my skincare line up, then you know I have been using an Essence from Missha. It is a Korean Brand and the Product is the Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment essence. The brand sent the essence over for me to try out and review, and i fell in love. It is good during the skincare line up, but I found it was extra fantastic for when I spent too much time in the sun or one of my other products prompted some sun sensitivity. Absolutely fantastic to sooth the skin. That and the fact that my babydoll started using it for some of his skin irritations meant that the bottle emptied out faster than I thought.
So I ordered another one. And it came in today’s mail!
With nearly everything else taking forever to get through the post this more or less just zipped through. I felt like giving the postman gold stars. I know he personally didn’t escort it from the company to me, but I still think he deserves an award.
Because my babydoll will use medicinal products from the medicine cabinet but never use “skincare” products I’m putting this bottle into the medicine cabinet. Bath products I can just sort of sneak into the bathroom and he’ll just use what is there. (Currently a Dr. Squach soap and some products from Huron, incase you are interested) and the bath bombs he likes to think are there for me and that he is just helping to use them up because there are so many (I have a jar I keep filled). Actually we are now officially into bath weather so I have moved the bath salts into a more accessible location (I have a wide variety of those from various subscription boxes as well as the Kniepps that I keep stocked) and I am ordering more Bath truffles from Zents. I’m getting the mandarin for me and after smelling the eau de toilette I used last week, my baby doll wants the Ore Bath Truffles to try out, so we’ll be ordering a few of those as well. I especially like to get those stocked before the craziness of the holidays begins. It is always nice to know I have something relaxing on hand to destress.
So there is no makeup today, but hopefully tomorrow the heater will have settled down and the sneezing will be less and I will actually get to try out some of the new makeup. Since so many subscriptions have been so skincare heavy lately I am really excited to try out some new makeup products. Just not today.
