Late Sleep In, Purple Finger ( I Kid U Not Resery :p), Yummy Food And Mismatched Socks

I am trying to give you all a run for your money with this heading lol Well this morning I woke up at 10.30 ( probably for the first time in about 10 yrs lol) no jokes!! My standard wake up time when i work is round 6.30 and even on off days is usually between 8 and 9 so imagine my surprise this morn well i feel like a million bucks ( mm maybe more like a thousand but anyhoo) Today was packing day for our trip, so i hauled alllllll the clothes out the cupboard. You know when you know exactly what u always wear and how each outfit looks but somehow before u go away u end up like a kid in a candy store and just have to try on eeeeverything yet again as if its the very first time you are doing so. Of course only to feel afterwards like a fat cow and like noooothing fits properly or looks good hehe ( ok maybe this is just me ) Then I decide to pack socks so headoff to the scary sockdraw to see what we can find. Now let me backtrack a bit and tell you that i am not very 'together' when it comes to neatly packing away socks in pairs etc. My hubby wants to kill me alot of the time as i tend to take his socks and use them ( mismatched of course). Its not for lack of trying to put them in pairs but there are just so many and its always easier to just grab the first two that fall out the draw so i managed to find just 4 pairs out of the billions in there.. so still packed a few mistmatched ones too isnt your life just that much more complete after i told u this story? Then ( Yes Res im serious) I dyed my hair as I thought the rich purply red colour would be glorious, turns out it works better on my finger than on my head ( ok no i havnt dried it yet so cant tell u that part ) BUT the finger does not lie people! I have what looks like a lovely POO stain on the inside of my thumb just in time to go to that very upmarket getaway (pic included for extra impact wahahaha). any clue how to take off said stains will be most helpful Have just eaten a massive plate of lamb stew and am now cuddled up on the couch with heater blazing and getting my fix of blog time how i love my blog time, although i must say it seems like there are fewer and fewer people blogginf? or is that just me? Ok so on the skin front - red marks are still red, no big bumps or anything its all flat and scabby but def not good enough to post pics. Ive been a lazy bum when it comes to the zinc pills and water, so must start that up again soon. and otherwise im just SUPER AMPED for our trip away, we are going to eat ourselves silly and just enjoy every minute, cant wait to share all when im back tomorrow im going shopping for last minute goodies and yum snacks like figs biltong biscuits etc... man i love food!! hope u all have an awesome week ahead

Super Yay, At Last!

Well hello my long lost friends flip what a busy week, all ive managed to squeeze in was a comment here and there and to read very few blogs as its been too busy.... So I cant even remember when last I wrote, may have been monday or saturday last week even so lets recap what has been happening: The job has been going well, have learnt alot and helped lots of clients and even traffic has been kind to me, pretty much 40min in and 40min home.
Evenings have consisted of friends coming over and lifegroup and when ive had a gap i have been so pooped ive sat like a vegetable staring into space. Funny how sometimes thats just the most satisfying thing to do hey!?
Food this week has been great lol, wednesday eve at lifegroup we made pizza on the fire and it was so delicious!ah man sometimes theres nothing quite like a pizza, especially when the cheese is all runny and runs down ur chin when you take a bite lol - gross visual i know but maaan its good! then there was chops and mash,roast chicken and potatoes and many other yummy things! mmm like those chocolate little toffees my hubby bought home last night, so delicious!
Well from today for a week and a half im off work YAY!! today we are heading off to Neethlingshof wine estate for lunch as we both took leave. then next week mon and tues ill be packing as we head off to Knysna for a week from wed - mon. SO SO excited
The holiday will consist of 2 nights at a seaview place, 1 night of amazing luxury and 2 nights in the forest, ill post pics here to share how stunning kynsna is and to get u all amped with me for my lil holiday LOL:)
Once again you wont be hearing from me in a while but will get lots of updates when im back and maybe ill be able to sneek a peek on my phone so i can atleast catch up on your life dramas:p
Skin front is looking good but its almost that time of month so lets see what happens! There are 3 big red scabs i havnt left alone but all are flat and today there are no other active pimples i can feel.
The big red scab on nose is so gross but im just praying itll all go away.
Sometimes its really tricky with my skin, because its dry it looks gross sometimes with makeup on as it settles over dry scabs... but of course one cant do without the BP which makes it all more dry so i just need to moisturize alot and hope it looks ok.
I also find it amazing how sometimes when i go away, my skin looks much better and not as dry, amazing how different places and climates alter the way our skin behaves hey!
Overall though Im pretty happy right now with how it looks, have also been trying to drink lots of water at work which can be a bit frustrating as i need to run to loo every few minutes lol! yeah overshare i know
anyways guys here are those pics, i must go get ready for our wine farm trip, ill take cam and share some pics later have a glorious day all :)

Happy Day :)

So today I just feel great lol Yesterday had such a cool time with my folks, webered a yummy pork roast with rice and gravy veg and crispy potatoes and chatted the eve away. Its amazing that i never really got on with my mom when i was a rebellious young lass dancing on bar counters and driving her insane :/ wonder why this could be..... anyhoo but now, we all get on like a house on fire today woke up at sparrows fart, 6.30 am on a Sunday!!!! and made breakfast for the musos ( worship team) at church ( on duty now and then for this as they get there early) then we were also on lifegroup duty so we basically set up coffee tea etc etc and it was awesome morn... I was reminded again about how cool it is to get together with hundreds of other peops who are all there for one reason, to worship Jesus people of all kinds, not interested in getting together to just socialize etc.. not just focused on self self self....but who are one in heart and mind, thats pretty rad!! Somehow when im in this environment its so much easier to forget about poor lil me and my skin... and easier to focus on others etc... the teaching was great, all about humility and serving one another and getting over this thing called pride and me me me. something stood out for me in the message.. self confidence and self consciousness are both problematic really, see the issue then still remains around ..SELF... i was like yeah , im pretty self conscious, i really must learn to take eyes off myself and fix them on God as what im after is God confidence not self confidence anyways was just awesome and alive and i left there feeling amazing, filled with peace and so loved and accepted by my heavenly Dad ... Ok so rest of day consists of me sitting on my bum while hubby fixes stuff around the house :)then jaccuzzi time later, flip havnt been in in like 6 months!!! baaad! must try fit in time just to take the chipped nailvarnish off my nails and recoat for work ... yes it does sound strenuous to me too :/ will have to pep talk myself into this later. OH YA HOW CAN I FORGET this is a skin blog!!! so im very happy , all is flat with the odd red mark where i picked scabs, but looking good and even glowing!! THERE skin talk over bye now,its series and popcorn time:D....

So Happy To Be In Bed

ah how i love wireless at times like this... snuggled up in my teddy pjs in my cozy bed laptop hoisted up on a pillow...yeah i know - not such a pretty picture i just painted lol! well it doesnt get much better than this just came back from the most delicious dinner ever at a durbanville winefarm. starter of sliced beef on red wine reduction followed by lamb shank that just fell off the bone and 2 brutal fruits ( sipped out a wine glass of course as the place was pretty snancy so i thought my normal bottle style wouldnt be too classy )sure people were pondering what dark purple fizzy wine i was drinking lol - or more likely they didnt give a toss! well onto the job: I had a really good day, traffic was kind to me, i coped well and helped lots of clients and pretty much know just about all the products in just 2 days, not to bad i say... i feel exhausted now ( think the brutals helped with that) but its a good tired, like im proud that i got the job and feel a sense on accomplishment when i come home tired at the end of the day but i can say when i finish up week before Christmas, I will be super happy to know i am not tied down to a 9 to 5 anymore. i am there working for the owner who is getting married, so its just us 2 in shop then ill be alone for 2 weeks... its cool, got to know her more today and chatted lots so the day went really quickly... on the skin front, all was fine and dandy until i washed my face before i reapplied makeup for dinner and discvered a few new spots.. i reckon that teatree toner has something to do with it, its that or maybe just working , not that i feel stressed but those are the only 2 reasons i can come up with, of course i squeezed but i have just applied heaps of BP so lets see how it goes now folks coming to stay over tomorrow which is cool, we are making a weber pork roast. for those of you foreigners i have attached a pic of a weber(the little round thing lol), much like a south african braai except its a kettle braai and gives a smoky flavour the other pic is a braai braai hehe meat on grid over open flame :)its so cool to learn about different countries lol, who knew there are people that have never heard of a braai, so interesting and just cause i can... some more pics of my babies huskies are awesome, our boy who is more a purebreed talks he says hawow every day lol!! so sweet, and he copies the sounds of the F1 racing by the facetrach close by, super funny and gorgeous Troy and Zara are their names.

First Day On The Job

So today was the big day at new temp job... what an overload of info lets do this in bullet points SKIN: YAY PRAISE THE LORD my skin has all flattened out and looked considerably good compared to last weeks crazy mess, usually when skins bad i hate the end of the day when makeup has faded and seems to be running off ur face and patchy and scabs look disgusting but i was pretty pleased by the end of the day still
weird new sty looking thing appeared on my eyes last night like 3 bumps all joined together right where eyeslashes and lid meet i was like whaaaat , looked gross, said mega prayers last night and piled on some antibacterial cream stuff and woke up and its muuuch better but still there a bit of a bump there, must have had some weirdo reaction or something
overall im happy scabs are flaking off when im not picking so thats cool
tonight really felt i needed a fresh feel on face so i added in some teatree toner to regimen lets see what happens if anything but face feels nice and rejuvinated


THE DAY
So loads of info was given to me today , first day and i was already quoting alone!lots of concentrating etc... and all i can say is when i got in car at the end of the day and took off contacts and put on glasses i could hardly see straight between the headache and the exhausted eyes lol
on a positive note i think ill quite enjoy myself working there and i love looking at all the modern furniture and accessories they have there,very cool little decor shop.
i was a clever girl and made extra dins last night so didnt need to cook now either YAY and tomorrow night when i get home we are going to winefarm for dinner so that will also be cool.
ok people im poked, going to sleep now sorry for extra boring blog
good night world... oh wait heres a joke about the man....
did you know that mark zuckerburg creator of facebook is dead? chuck norris poked him

1 More Day Then Work Eeeeek

So I realized one more day then its work for a week hehe:P its going to take some getting used to and i just reallllly want face to clear up now cant believe i just have tomorrow to hopefully clear alot more. i should have left skin alone without picking, quite annoyed at myself now as I have blood red marks all ove rthe show, they are flat but scabby and red but as its been an emo time for me so i have been picking more. sadly hubby and i fought again last night, sometimes i feel like such a loser and crappy wife, but i just pray harder that God would make me more into the woman that I am meant to be and less of a moany groany, i cant change myself only He can change me from inside. i just hate emotional crap to be honest its exhausting, takes its toll and today i really felt i couldnt move i felt so drained and exhausted but i kicked my own butt up and tidied bedroom and found out the fumigator dude is coming tomorrow thank goodness!! there has been an infestation of earthworms as well as baby roaches in the house over past few weeks and it drives me mad!!! i hate crawly stuff! im a real girl like that!! on to happier things I just made the yummmmmiest dinner it was a healthy chicken lasagna made with mushroom soup super yumm! think ill be going for seconds. other happy news is im down 2 kilos, im just eating healthier and last week treadmilled, im just to emo this week i cant make myself get on there. i want to push myself tomorrow though so i can get into the right frame of mind for work thurs.... its going to be quite the challenge i tell u , i have become quite used to chilling and starting cooking at 3 in afternoon, now ill only be getting home 6.30 ish what shall i do..... lol no wonder i used to eat takeout so much makes sense to me. the great part is at least its only for a week now then im away in beautiful wilderness. also looking forward to seeing my folks sat eve for a braai and yummy lunch at a wine farm with hubby ( if he still wants to spend day with me then :/) ok enough of my depressing drama lol happy eve all!!

Ok Im Over It :) 9 Weeks Today

So let me start off by apologizing for my incredibly emo blog yesterday i was really down... Well good news is that today i feel better and hubby and i woke up and both apologized for being morons and fighting yesterday. i hate fighting with him, sometimes though i think its good to fight as it makes u realize what u have when you are both louzy to eachother so onto the skin... yes ive been picking at scabs still but its all looking a bit better now and flattening out. its a rollercoaster for me because its always around lady time of month that things go haywire and i always feel shocked how quickly my smooth skin can become all bumpy and gross. it definately takes its toll on my confidence levels even though lately i push myself that much more then to go out. still feel insecure though when im chatting to people close up in comparison to when it looks better and then i have no issues with this. im praying really hard that some miracle will occur and by thursday this week my skin will look glorious for when i start the job and have to start dealing with clients. mmm what else can i share with u. its been a quiet day today, cleaned up and chilled a bit, did some washing. pretty boring really i tell u. looking forward to chilling later and watching harrys law. ill write again when i have something of interest to share waahaa. bye now

Zits Are Nasty Little Suckers....

LOL very mad at my zitty face mmm and myself for picking like mad. I reckon maybe its due to stress, i realize when i cant sleep or tend to stress i definately pick more. so im not going to waffle too much ( well ill try my best not to but cant promise ) Heres the low down: SKIN: Some of the big new zits have gone down alot but are all red and disgusting from me playing with face
the one under my nose ( well i had 2 big ones) have both gone down as i piled BP on 3 times during the night lol
today need to go for my eyetest and wondering if i will look like a flaky monster under my make up
today going to cancel my back massage when we go away as skins looking ugly on back and i definately dont want people touching it when it looks bad, sad i know, was meant to be couples massage but ill just book to have my toes done while hubby gets massage which he just loves. ive never actually had one cause have always felt self consious about back
forhead upper cheaks and nose all clear with the odd old faded scab so all the actions happening at the bottom of my face and i mean allllll cause it resembles an atomic explosion with red little fiery marks all over the show :/
today NO PICKING lots of water and treadmill again YES PEOPLE EVERY DAY THIS WEEK IVE EXCERSIZED WHOOP WHOOP AAAAAND I can feel my legs again which is great progress id say

LIFE:
So at 3am I wake up this morn to the sound of water pressure , like someones showering in our house, so I wake up hubby and he says its probably the rain and im like NO ITS NOT its definately our water running or neighbours, so he goes to check kitchen and lo and behold he stands in a puddle in the kitchen and it looks like a pipe has burst behind dishwasher, so here we are mopping up water on kitchen floor in scullery and we see that the garage is about 7cm deep in water as well:O sucky suck i tell you so today we shall be sweeping out the garage and if anythings damaged we will claim from insurance ( oooh ive never done that before moooore shoppping
um so eyetest today and then shop ( flip u people must think i have no life hey lol)well ill be happy to tell you I do, i promise I just like shopping relaxing cooking socializing and spending time with u fine people
so turns out my new boss for the 6 weeks is super flexible as ill be away and cant work the friday of the training week ill be working as follows: thurs fri next week, following mon-thurs and then th 8th Nov to the 15th dec, so at least ill finish up way before Christmas and can shop some more YAY!!
Sadly I wont have so much time to spend on this site when i am working so will have to make up for it inbetween... YES THATS RIGHT PEOPLE I might just irritate you a few more times a day hehehehe
lastly i would just like to apologise for bad grammar and spelling, i know i know, it can be annoying but i type fast and dont want to go back and read it all... so ull just have to live with it im afraid .... bye for now

cant believe it was just yesterday i said how great it looked and how very quickly this face can change
plan: drink loads of water today, pile on the BP and pray it goes away... maybe cause ive been eating just veggies and salads for 2 days and drinking more water and excersizing, something that resembles a detox might be taking place??
NOT SO HAPPY ANYMORE WITH SKIN!!! BAAAAAAD SKIN!!

Life update: Feeling chuffed today that i managed to walk into that interview and walk out 5 minutes later with the job, although I do not praise myself but thank my God instead as every good and perfect gift comes from him so thank you Lord
mmmm well i cancelled my eye test today, after shopping for 4 hrs straight in heels yesterday and taeboing like there was no tomorrow before my shopping spree, i couldnt move last night lol, and today just feel exhausted.
So im taking a me day... netvlieging away as my hubby calls it : and i have a date with the couch later to watch 90210, hellcats and whatever else my dear pvr has to offer

8 Weeks Tomorrow :)

Ah so back from my crazy busy amazing weekend Fri night we went to stay by my folks who stay close to simonstown and stayed up late into the night chatting about my dads old army stories and back in the day when he was a real naughty turd was most amusing lol, we braaid and chatted up a storm, then spent saturday shopping for home decor, saturday eve chilling at home, and today with hubbys side of family... very cool and busy with the most glorious weather out!! On the skin front, Im very happy once again, have been picking away on my scabs so red marks are super red but all is flattened nicely and for this time of month Im pretty happy face has been glowing and for some unknown reason friends,family and hubby kept telling me how pretty i look this weekend... why i dont know. but sure skin has something to do with it. Reality is I feel like a bit of a beach whale at the moment... i realized with sad shock that its less than a month away that we head out to glorious wilderness for our 5 yr anniversary and all the weight I so wanted to lose is still sitting in all the wrong places so much for bikini bod, think ill be swimming fully clad if u ask me lol! my treadmill sits looking at me daily with its puppy dog eyes pleeding with me to get running, but each day I opt for the lazy side of life. If anything the amazing sunny weather really gets me motivated so its time... i write it here as proof...mark my words people.... tomorrow IS the day!!! oh to be 21 again with my perfect old lil figure ... As Im thinking baby somewhere in the not so far future I better get the weight off now before I get to that point! oh woman, i know i know if its not our skin its our weight and this or that lol, why cant we just be happy hey back to my skin -I guess,maybe as some others have been writing lately - maybe the reason my skin is not clearing properly could very well be due to the fact that i wear make up to often so my skin just doesnt have the fair chance to heal properly... Im not to sure but would be so happy if it would heal properly.... oooh or it could be the diet ... yes this staple diet of cupcakes, pizza etc... may be a problem....anyways i better be off to give my doggies some attention... here is one of them my gorgeous boy, troy

:) Almost 8 Weeks

So Im stoked today, the big bumps are flattening out nicely as ive been going pretty BP crazy since these massive things have started appearing left right and centre ok so the flakiness is very NOT cool and very obvious underneath the foundation but hey! it could be worse having flaky with very big red bumps underneath... I have some active pimples on chin and the big cyst under skin next to my nose,the one big one on my eye I was so impressed with, after loading with bp the next morning it went down completely even though i had squeezed it before putting on the bp. usually these éyezits' have a nasty habit of growing and growing and lasting for weeks so wasnt i pleasantly surprised... This could of course be due to the water Im drinking as well, past 3 days I have been very good with my 1 and a half litres a day and it always shocks me how quickly water can improve my skin, it even glows more! so yesterday eve we couldnt go to the beach as it was too windy but we had a gorgeous day today and not only did i tan my super casper white legs but i also enjoyed a stunning steak and butternut salad on the beach with my love which totally rocked. Once again Im blessing you with some pics hehe of the beautiful mother city otherwise tomorrow I have a date with a girlfriend, going for coffee along seapoint and lunchat her spot which im looking forward to, i simply just cannot hibernate in this weather , its too glorious. Oh yeah ive never really spoken about my 'bacne'I have some of that too and a very big cyst on my back too which never goes away, its not red - just gross! im a big baby when it comes to getting things removed.. but anyways im keen to start looking into getting my back clear too, I cant afford to coat it in BP as well, as the tube i buy doesnt have lots in, it barely gets me through the month for my face... anyways have a good eve peops....

Less Moaning Today :)

So something seems to be up with this blog? is anyone else battling to post new blog entries? seems to be taking forever and eventually i need to close screen so if you couldnt read last entry thats why.... Well You didnt miss much I was just moaning about my crappy skin week lol.. been feeling a bit down as skins gone a bit crazy and lots of new zits and big marks etc... woke up feeling better today though, doesnt help moping does it. Thats one thing about working from home, you have the option to hide out, I dont know if thats a good thing though hehe. I remember sitting in meetings with about 12 sales reps in my last job position, bright morning light shining on face in the boardroom and they run through each persons sales aloing with all the reps in different regions on skype... flip hey when i was having a bad skin week it was just the worse, no where to hide face and everyone sitting around a table looking at eachother and of course with the stress of the job my skin was almost always a mess which didnt help matters much, im so relieved to not have to go through that anymore but still, the option to just lie around and mope is so much higher when you dont 'have to' get up and go. I must say since I left that job Im like a whole new person Just having time to slow down, to look after hubbys needs and house and to persue what i want to do ( interior decorating) is great... ok so I havnt had any jobs yet in 5 months but I have been setting up stuff and took 2 months break and have done one small drawing job i suppose having this opportunity has also enabled me to leave skin make up free alot which has been great. ah love this song...daughtry is awesome ( sorry random thought as im listening to them lol) So today sun is shining, always makes me feel like going out, wonder what face will look like today with make up :/ its hard to hide all the big bumps and sometimes when it looks too bad after all the effort of putting on my face I decide hell no its too bad im staying in!! super sad, I must take my own advice and just go and stop worrying, most people are just getting on with their lives and surely dont care about some random strangers bumpy face now do they! anyhoo i want to start thinking about diet now more as well...wondering what a gluten dairy free diet looks like, if anyone has links they can share please do... I would be interested to see how diet may impact face ( oh and body will be a bonus too )Well options for today are : Sit around and mope Go to beach Go to shops to get food Go to china town and look at clothes ( mmmm shopping baaaaad) Go get pics developed for my photo wall and work on that aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah i duuuuuno bye for now

What A Zitty Week :(

so apparently some peops couldnt read this let me try repost : This is gonna be a boring whiney blog - im warning you. skin hasnt looked worse since i started. i dont really understand whats going on all i do know is PMS and sugar probably have something to do with it. not only do the bumps all look worse but i even have a new massive zit on my eyelid which is my worst along with that next to nose is the biggets blind zit known to man...so yeah im trying to be positive but have been hiding out past 2 days just drinking water and leaving face open... but baking and eating cupcakes as well :/ and as i get more marks im picking more as well... oi oi oi .... is there some good news mmmm i guess cloudy weather and dvds cuddled op on my couch and not having to go out is pretty good although tomorrow i will be venturing out for lifegroup so will be caking on the makeup and hopefully wont look to gross. the thing is when skin starts to clear - you notice every new bump even more and in your own mind think that others will notice just as much hey anyways im too depro today to talk much, ill just go back into burrito mode now thats what hubby calls me when i curl up on couch in a blankie lol happy eve all , I hope ur progress is better than mine at the moment

7 Or 8 Weeks I Think..... Mmmmm

So Im battling to remember where I am now... 7 or 8 weeks on the regimen... sadly not the best that my skin has looked but I can blame myself for that i guess with all the rubbish that has been going into my mouth along with that irritating picking habit which i still havnt quite mastered. Its so much easier not to pick when there is NOTHING TO pick but this journey is very up and down for me so this is a down week skin wise.. new big red bumps appearing in places and older scabs are a bit flaky, this could ofcourse be due to PMS who knows! I have run out of zinc pills so need to make a chemist run soon as i really feel the zinc helped alot... I have also been naughty in the water department ...yes yes i know practice what you preach sister lol...im always on about water. why is it that we so often have good advice for others yet somehow battle to follow our own advice mmm? anyway i went down to the beach yesterday even though the wind almost blew us off our feet lol so didnt really make it further than 3 steps from the car lol... buuuut i did manage to snap a stunner of a pic so u guys could enjoy some of beautiful cape town without even leaving your computers we do live in one of the most beautiful cities I think... I have never been anywhere outside of south africa..sad i know.. but i do feel like we have a lil bit of the best of everything here from forest to beach to everything inbetween.... love my city <3 so yeah not much else to report today.. im going to clean the house now ...its in need after 2 weeks of being sick .... have a lovely day friends .....

Bleh Day.... Get Over It!

So Im having a bleh day! New set of twins on my cheekbone which i squeezed last night ( not so clever ) I find when i cant sleep or feel frustrated picking tends to be like a soother, oh but same cant be said for dealing with the consequences the next morning silly girl! So my fading red marks are looking more reeed and inflamed and my new zits bigger. Oh well I must just behave now. the fatty breakfast yesterday with girlfriends and lots of coffee didnt really help my case... or could it be that creamy blue cheese steak on friday... mmm or the mac and cheese last night drenched in creamy rich cheesy DAIRY sauce i wooonder flip i must get rid of this love of food...yup summers drawing closer and Im not getting any smaller as i munch munch away all day...cant believe just 5 yrs ago when i got married how small i was and unlike my mommy friends i dont even have a good excuse for my paunchy paunch or new rounder face lol!! anyways today after all this indulging i feel a bit drained and exhausted and mmm fat and spotty yeah thats it hoping the service tonight will shift focus back off me again so i can get over this self pity,worship always seems to lift my spirits and refocus my attention on God and off poor old lil me and my flaws, reminds me how small and insignificant i really am in the greater scheme of things yet how unique and important I am in His eyes ! mmm so what else, its a glorious day outside today in SA , beach is just down the road, wondering if i should get off my lazy bum and go soak up some sun and take a walk, table mountain is glorious.. our beach has the BEST view of it as well! yeah next blog I think ill post some pics for u guys... its so stunning! anyways peops have a great rest of weekend and chat soon - ah what a cool icon!! who is this random dude?! flip these icons make me lag sometimes!

Its The Weekend Superyay!

So I had this amazing revelation last night. Although my skin is still far from perfect, and who knows if it ever will be besides the Good Lord... I realized that the way I am seeing myself and others is starting to change now that my face is clearing more and this is just due to my own perception of myself. I find myself looking people in the eye when I speak to them up close without thinking... They are SO thinking about that massive ZIT on my face... or... Her face is One massive zit!!I i find myself letting people in more, almost like I trust others more now that I feel better about myself? I find myself putting myself out there more... getting involved more in activities where i would usually want to hide away, especially DAYTIME activities where every little or NOT SO little bump would be all that was on my mind when i was with people. Its amazing what we are prepared to do to ourselves, its like we abuse ourselves by wanting to hide away and miss out on life because this thing called acne stands in our way... or does it? is it not just our own perception or us standing in our way to a greater life? are we not just holding ourselves back because we FEEL ugly and inferior? wow deeeep i tell u,Yup im shocking myself too with this deeeep stuff!! So back to my little story... I realized yesterday that when my husband looks at me now without makeup, I dont mind. I remember just 6 weeks ago when my face was in a red raging bumpy mess that not only did i want to hide away but i also didnt want him to look at me, it made me feel worse, i felt uglier... how sad i know he loves me and doesnt care about red marks but it was all meeee and my silly perception, anyway bottom line is that Its so cool to feel like hey he is állowed'to look at me now without me feeling super duper ugly. I have also found myself spending more time in gods word just seeing what He has to say about us little humans and how much he loves us ( no matter what we look like) this too has helped me gain better perspective on what this lifes about and I can tell you one thing - Its not about meeeeee So try enjoy life regardless of acne because you are beautiful and prized by the King, lets try focus more on this inside and less on outward appearances which are fleeting anyways

Ah The Joys Of Having A Smoother Face :)

so feeling really good as it stands about skin, Yes its still red in places and yes i get a new one every now and then :)but im super stoked with the new face wash and moisturizer, leaves skin feeling fresh and clean and is improving overall texture of my face as well and just so happy that i get all the make up off at the end of the day with just 2 squeezes of the wash! Its amazing the difference it makes to ensure you wash twice a day instead of just once. as im working from home sometimes when Im lazy ill skip the morning regimen and maybe just apply BP to the zits, but ive noticed after a few days of being strict on myself again and making sure I do everything well - vuala!face is clearing so much faster again very glad i am trying different things and learning from different suggestions on this site.... also so proud that i have been brave enough to post pics without makeup... u people are lucky! most of my family members havnt even seen me without makeup lol since i was like 12! its actually pretty liberating to do so hehehe anyways alls going well and nothing much new to report this side...
