Well, I’ve not been productive all day with this snowy weather, so I will just not try to fight that and continue the trend and blog!
I have missed blogging. The days are a flyin’ by and by the end of the night there is no time for the blogosphere, but days like today are so much fun because I don’t feel guilty for letting my kids watch too much TV and I can catch up with you fine people.
So, I thought I would let you know a few things that have been rocking my world lately.
In the hopes to stay forever young and start taking a little better care of my skin I want you to know about this new face stuff I use.
After reading many amazon reviews and researching lots of anti aging products, I found something VERY interesting.
Have you heard of this? I KNOW what you’re thinking. This lady is crazy if she thinks I’m gonna put something on my face with the word “acid” in it.
SO questionable, I know. But I am not currently dropping acid or on any drugs of any kind, this is a real thing. Trust.
So, this stuff is SO cheap, I think like 10 bucks on Amazon. And most of the reviews say it evens your skin tone, makes pores smaller, diminishes wrinkles and hydrates. (And then some people say it literally does not one of those things and is total crap, but try to skim over those).
I’m NOT kidding, this stuff is nice. I like it a LOT! I first wash my face with Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Cleanser (also bought online for not much money) and then I put a few drops of acid (hahahahahah that was a hilarious thing to say, I have been in the house for too long. ACID! HA!) on my hands and rub it on my face and then I spray rose water (also Amazon, also cheap) on my face BEFORE the hyaluronic acid dries because some reviewer said to and I like to do what I’m told.
And because it’s so crazy dry here, I then add a little bit of jojoba oil on my face. And who knows what that’s doing but I think I read somewhere it’s good for your skin. Here’s to hopin’.
I wish I had some awesome thing to say at this point like everyone is asking why my skin looks so good, but that isn’t even close to true.
The reality may be that I am washing my face twice a day and that is just helping my life overall. How’s that for a ringing endorsement? Either way, thought you should know about that acid stuff. So trippy. Ok. Done.
[UPDATE: Jojoba oil is not so good on my face after all as it's a little too oily. But the rose water is not enough moisture for this arid Colorado weather, so as for now I am still using Jojobo mixed in my with my body lotion, but am on the lookout for the perfect face moisturizer to use in conjunction with the hyaluronic acid and rose water. If you have an ideas, let me know!]
Now another thing I wanted to share with you is the Topsy Tail Updo.
Do you remember the Topsy Tail?
Here is some woman in the 90s demonstrating how it worked.
So, I am gonna try to bring this back with a little modern twist. I’m using a lot of acid these days so let me know if this isn’t working.
Here’s a step by step on the Topsy Tail Updo:
1.) Grab front, top section of hair. Back comb a bit and pin into a pouf. And then get your hair trimmed, because you have split ends. Oh wait, nope that’s just me.
3.) Channel your inner 90s girl hair and get your Topsy Tail on.Which means pull apart the hair right above where that hairtie is and then put the ponytail up, in and on through that divide. Should look something like this.
5.) Then twist your hair around into a bun and pin all the loose pieces. No reason or rhyme to this just pin that hair until you like it. And THEN you really are done.
Get some acid face and do some Topsy Tailin’.
It could all change your world. Or it could do nothing at all.
Can’t know ’til ya try. I should be in sales.
