Dabbling with some paint and brushes …

wp-image--892225701I know what your thinking…. what the hell would two crabs be fighting over a hotdog for??…. It’s supposed to be a Frisbee, lmao! I had painted both of these for my sweetie, as a playful way to show my love a romantic gesture, if u will, the starfish, super cute, actually remind me of many a time my babe has dragged me outta the ocean, lmao, indeed there is a pirate ship tale I shall tell u about sometime soon….but not now:)

The lil crabs frolicking on the beach, with the “Frisbee”, again for my love, was a wink to the fact that physically we don’t have a hope or a prayer of running the beach playing Frisbee, at the moment,( but someday!) or any sport for that matter (originally I had a beach ball in place of the Frisbee), but we still love being with each other after all these years, and its more likely enjoying a hotdog, but that’s ok too:)

So a few things should be obvious by now, I love my sweetie, I like painting/drawing sea creatures in weird scenarios, I love to dabble in anything artistic even though I am self taught, and have some family born talent from my late father, who was an educated, actual trained artist 🙂 My thing has always been, if I have an interest in something, believe you can do it, and then if you can’t, fuck it, fake it til u make it! Everybody knows that mantra!

I will never be a pro and I’m ok with that, I love doing it ad that’s what matters, just like I love sewing, crocheting, jewelry making, and the bazillion other things I’m into, haha!

I won’t say its easy being with me, my sweetie puts up with ALOT, medically I am a wildcard, all over the map, its getting better for us over the years, thankfully, just have to try and stay positive. its hard. I’m exhausted pretty much all the time still, my pain, is sporadic, somewhat controlled, depending on the day, I get distracted at the drop of a hat, and I don’t have the luxury of working 24/7 on my passions as my body interjects quite a lot, so I never know when I will b ok to do what.. but whatever right, just gotta do it! Anyhoo,  all I can  say is as a person with chronic pain, stay inspired by life, stay positive, not only about your every days,  but your mini victories in your health. Sometimes I forget to celebrate the little things, the progressions that have brought me here, to this place right now, to actually be able to write for an hour with out stopping, that wasn’t always the case, I need to celebrate this win, today will be a good day……I hope, lol.

review for: My fabulous Fabletics:)

review for: My fabulous Fabletics:)

So I have been a customer of Fabletics for a long time now, and figured it would be an excellent choice for a review. I have heard a lot of sad sally’s sulk about a few things, mainly the price, and getting charged the monthly fees “against” their will, but c’mon, did they come to your house, on the nite of the 4th, and tie ya to a chair and say, “bahhaahahaahaha, we gotcha now, for another month, bahahahaahaha”, ahhh, I don’t think so, you just skip, lol! the price when compared to other brands, and compared to quality of goods, and the fact u get a whole outfit, in sizes u want, HELLO, it just works! Also, can we please understand that the selection of this brand? There’s athletic wear, swim wear, casual stuff, dresses, bras, undies, accessories, water bottles, hats, coats, etc, all of it is top notch, and has lasted me forever and a day. I have put my leggings for one through the wringer, and they have yet to pull, pill, fade, stretch, anything, and that’s with putting them in the dryer, too, lol! Which I have to admit at first I babied all my athletic stuff as with all previous brands they seemed to shrink if they even came within eye shot of a dryer, but this stuff, with the exception of some dresses, you can wash and go again no worries. The fit is fabulous, for once they know how to fit a lady, I have curves, ok, and some brands seem to think women are preteen boys, not Fabletics.! Finally lets talk about their styles and color palettes, fresh, and fashion forward, you can wear them even when your not working out, lol:) I like that they came out with plus sizes,1x-3x, I think that’s awesome!! Anyhoo, I look forward to enjoying my Fabletics, in the months ahead, and skipping the month, when I don’t want to, its just that easy, lil ladies:)

Review for you: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Matte #111 Kiss of Life

OMG, I am addicted to this saucy lil lipstick, lol!! I love everything about it, literally! The color is a homerun, it goes on smooth as silk, and dries matte, but not over too drying, I can wear this all night without worry, its there to stay, through most happy hours and beyond, haha! Seriously, though, it packs a punch in pigment, staying power, price point is pretty awesome, under $10, considering what it delivers, and I have paid allllot more for shi shi lipsticks that came off at the hint of a sip of coffee. So if you want my two cents, go for it girl, and color, I love the #111 Kiss of Life, that’s my fave, but doesn’t mean I don’t like the others:) Premo quality stuff here! Go get it, lil ladies!!

This mascara is by far the worst I have EVER tried, and believe me I have tried TONS! This stuff is junk! I don’t understand the formula, it’s supposed to be waterproof, ok, the texture feel like thick goopy honey on my eyes, I wasn’t able to layer to get length, or to thicken. I am very disappointed in everything about this crap mascara, I believe I was duped into spending around $10ish on this, which is about $9.50 too much in my opinion! Honestly I’m not trying to be so harsh but it took me almost 45 minutes and a whole bottle of my micellar water to get this gunk off my eyes, which btw, has proven to get anything off in the past💋 And cleanser AND it still was there!!Anyhoo, I guess it’s clear I am not a fan of this at all, lol! I appreciate the staying power of the formula if I can say anything positive, but the consistency is a joke, go back to the drawing board on this on, Mabelline.👎

Review for you💋 Lise Watier Magnifix Make up fixative with white tea 

Just picked this up as I know Lise Watier products very well and there quality is usually amazing. This did not disappoint ! The fragrance from the white tea and marine extracts were refreshing, felt wonderful on my bare skin too as refresher during the day,I even spritzed my do, too, haha, don’t judge, the scent is irresistible!! I’m impressed with the staying power of my make up with this product, compared to without, my combo skin was tamed dramatically, too! It lasted for 8+ hours I would say, no cakey look, not to greasy either, perfect Dewy look, lovely.I could feel a firming effect on my bare skin to a certain degree, I know this could be the tea or the Chitosan marine extracts working their wonders:) I LOVE that it’s alcohol free, that’s important to me for a lot of reasons, my medications I take cause a reaction, for one, lol, another is anti aging, the less alcohol going on my face means less wrinkles and irritation👍😘 Its made for sensitive skin, and under dermatological control. You get a decent size 115ml/3.8oz for approx. $24, in Canada. It comes in a pretty irredescent clear spray bottle. If you need another reason, this product won Elle Quebec and Canada 2016 Beauty Grand Prix BEAUTE 2016💋 Gotta love awards💕Overall, I am hard pressed for anything bad to say except maybe it’s a lil pricey, BUT when u add it all the benefits, and compare it to others, it’s a no brainer, babe!💋

Update on the “wink” 

Standard

Howdy, do, peeps, thought I would give an update on my lil “wink” face situation. While there has been vast improvement in recovery of my eye returning to its rightful place, lol…. It alas still looks like a lil wink, haha, good news is pain has been drastically reduced to a dull roar, with only a couple how do you do “ice pick in your brain” pains, here and there,  to remind me it might not be over just yet. 

Sooo I decided inspite of it, to put on my face, get dolled up, and ignore the ice picks, and pretend I am normal, only problem with that was….I’m not:(…..I fell asleep. When I woke up for the 3 Rd time, I hoped that was the end of it. I had taken my Modafinil, but today it definitely isn’t working. Some days have been worse some days have been WAAAAYYY BETTER, just trying to figure it all out. Especially now I am realizing that I have to look at my narcolepsy/cataplexy differently because of my hydrocephalus, and how it affects me differently when compared to someone with narcolepsy and no hydrocephalus. If you are reading this, and you have narcolepsy with hydrocephalus I would especially like to hear from you, please. Anyhoo, I continue to work on my health, and get answers where I can, every little bit helps. I see my sleep doc soon, to discuss different things I can try , and the narcolepsy/hydrocephalus combo, and how to approach it more successfully, if it’s possible:) Anyhoo, enjoy the rest of your weekend, I’m waiting for the rain to roll in, haha! Ciaos for now😘

I got the “wink” face/(

Standard

Now and again, weather related, sometimes, when I’m tired, when I’m not, when I’m happy, sad, angry, whatever the case, and on those certain occasions, I get what I actually have right now, and have decided to call my “wink” face.

image

In an instant, my right eye, sometimes the right side of my face, and even my body will go “paralysed” for minutes, hours, I believe the longest was a few days for the body.I will feel a tingling, burning, in my arm, or leg, til they droop like a rag doll, and a heaviness in my face like there is a weight hanging on it. For the longest time, before blogging, I just thought and so did my doctors, that it was migraine related, or remaining damage from delayed hydrocephalus surgery, causing more damage to my brain and nerves, basically I figured this is what I am stuck with, pain and paralysis. Anyhoo, after reading through some fellow narcoleptics, migraine, and hydrocephalus blog’s, it seems there might be a corolation between my intermittent paralysis and my narcolepsy. For years I have had these weird sensations like hair hurts, stings to breathe, ice cold eyeballs, freezing roof of my mouth, right side of my mouth no feeling, blindness in right eye momentarily, sleeping abruptly, stabbing, pain in my jaw, side of head,  pain in the side of my forehead, body paralysis, slurred speech, over ten years of so many weird symptoms, so many specialists, without any real answers, its frustrating for all of us, but now its somehow better since my brain surgery, like a new lease on life,getting time to sort myself out, lol:)Anyhoo, I can’t rule out migraine either, could be both or a three for, lol, Anyhoo, just needed to share about my
” wink” cuz its giving me a real problem today💕
Please enjoy the beautiful summer day for me!🌸🌸

P.S. putting on eyeshadow is a real challenge, lmao! Good thing my younique party isn’t over just yet;)

Kaytlin McDougall, is my presenter, she can answer any questions you have, she’s a sweetie! 

Anyhoo, on with the review, the lip stain, In the shade Suntry, is top notch, compared to many I have tried, in many years, I have to say. The formula is slick and thin, I like that you can control the degree  of staining, like others, but this one the pigment is nicer in quality than others I have tried. The longevity of wear during normal activities, ie , kissing my sweetie, 😘,  drinking, eating, Over the course of a few hours I found it held up pretty awesome, really !😘 Removing the lip stain  with make up wipes was dead easy, too:) The quality of the Younique brand is great for the price point, you won’t be disappointed. I plan on stocking up on other colors, I actually regret not getting the set of 3, oh and the mascara, too, and the foundation, it’s a game plan to try ’em all, lol! Anyhoo, please check out my virtual party, and shop a little or a lot if u please, too:)
