Beauty from Overseas

I'm looking on one of my favorite site for international cosmetics: I love the layout, the wide range of products and the opportunity to try something that I can't get here in the continental market. It's so much fun going through the endless pages of products dedicated to this and that.

The only problem that I'm having now is what I should buy. I set a budget and all that. I'm just super unsure about what I should buy. I know I definitely want to look into something that will revitalize my skin and get rid of these horrid marks left behind by years of eyeglass wear. I never thought I would get to this point, but at the tender age of 24, I have laugh lines, and I see wrinkles in my forehead. AHHHHH!!!!! Time to get that under control ASAP!

I guess I'll take the next few hours out to make some decisions. And when everything arrives I'll be sure to update.

BTW: My car just got fixed today and I'm still waiting on the new glasses so that I can drive. What a mess.... But I'm working through it. :)

New Glasses

I did the unthinkable...I broke my glasses. It may seem like a curse, but it was actually a blessing in disguise. I went to the optical store and managed to order some pretty snazzy pairs of glasses. It was more than time for a new look. Also, I was long overdue for an eye exam.

It will likely be a week or two before they get in, but I'm so glad that I took care of that portion of my business.

One thing I kept in mind while picking out my glasses was my love of makeup. What is the use in having frames that covered my eyeshadow? LOL. The one thing about my old glasses I hated was how they blocked me from seeing my elaborate eye makeup that I spent so much time and effort on. They also created unsightly dark marks on my face from the metal wearing down over time.

On that note, I will be trying a homemade treatment on those areas to reverse the damage created from wearing those hideous things. I will be posting more on that a little later :)

Diets, Diets, Diets

This has been one crazy summer. My schedule has been absolutely wild. As a result, I've actually put on a few more pounds rather than lose some. I won't go into that. My point is that it's time for me to get serious about this whole thing.

One thing I learned from my mother (whom is not an authority on this but just wise) told me not to think of losing weight through diets. They work, but only for a little while. And when people reach their goals, they do the unthinkable and gain all that weight back. I don't want that. I want a continuing good bill of health and to be at a healthy weight.

I don't feel pressure to lose weight to please anyone. I'm just serious about getting in shape. I've spent too much time trying to please others and not looking out for myself like I should. It's alright though. Life is changing, and now it's all about my total health and beauty. :)
