It’s been a slow week

I’ve been doing okay, I still feel mentally sluggish. I’ve been trying to do things that make me feel better. I know I always feel better when I do my makeup. I’ve just been trying to find a balance with my mental health lately.

I said in my last post I was going to take pictures of the makeup I’ve gotten the past couple weeks. So here they are…

Mom got me these nail polishes from Sally Hansen. It’s their donut collection.

Here are swatches of the nail polish… I didn’t have any nail swatch wheels, so I just did them on a piece of paper and put the name of the polish swatched next to them.

Saturday’s makeup… I felt like doing my makeup to just feel good about myself. I really liked this makeup.

Sunday’s makeup (mother’s day) I wanted to look good for pictures for Mother’s Day. Though I struggled with my contacts, so I just wore my glasses. I kept getting eyeliner on my contacts, which made it very difficult to see through them. So I took them out and cleaned them a couple times and messed up my makeup, so I said screw it and just put on my glasses.

I got more patches for my jean jacket. I got to go to the post office and see if I have more in the P.O.Box. I love the lipstick with the bat wings. It feels like one of the most fitting for me, lol. I had one custom made that’s a Great Pyrenees, and it has my Angel babies’ name on it. I had to have one with Rocko and another with Angel. I wish I could’ve done one with his picture, but the dog bone with his name will be good enough for me. Just until I can get another that I love.

I’ve bought a lot of makeup. Lately, I just haven’t posted it on here. Here are a couple pictures of some of the makeup I got, and I’ve been trying to use it. I’ve been trying to find that perfect foundation. It’s hard to find foundations that match because I’m so pale, and companies make their lightest an orange shade. I don’t feel like looking like an Oompa-Loompa. I wanted to buy white mixing mediums for foundations, and I can’t seem to find any. I already have Manic Panic’s white, but I thought more companies made them.

I know there’s more that I’ve gotten. I really just need to do a video of my makeup collection. It’s just hard in this small house. Since I have to move so much just to get into my dressers that have my makeup. Let me know if you’d want that and I’ll see what I can do. Or I can take pictures of some of what I have, though, that would be a lot of work lol.

So I got a couple eyeshadow pallets from Melaleuca. I can’t wait to use them and see their pigmentation. The top pallet is called East, and the bottom one is called West. They’re inspired by cities from the east coast and the west coast. I really want to try their other color cosmetics. I think I can do some pretty looks with them.

I’m trying to do stuff more, so I don’t feel guilty about not doing it. I don’t know I’ve just been struggling mentally. So I’ve been trying to stay focused and do what I need to. It’s only been hard to keep the motivation. There’s so much I want to do, but I’ve lacked the motivation to do them.

I have to say I’ve missed going to project beauty share. I really want to go back and volunteer. I don’t feel like I’m doing what I need to do. I do have amazon smile, and when I buy something, a donation goes to them. At least I’m doing something even if it’s small.

So my week hasn’t been eventful. I’ve just been trying to stay ahead of my depression. My meds doctor is changing a med of mine because I gained so much weight after increasing it. So I’m weaning off that one and starting a new one. I worry about my depression getting bad while going off of it, but it’s worth it if my depression gets better after the other med is in me.

This site is like Costco, where you pay for a membership, for I think $20 a year. That price is so much better than Costco’s lol. But you don’t have to go to a store to order you just order online, and it comes within 2-3 days. Their customer service is top-notch. I wanted a particular package they were selling for signing up, and they called who they needed to find out why I couldn’t buy it. Come to find out they just repackaged it, so it wasn’t for sale. I found a different one to try, which I’ll get into. You get money back for the products you buy. You can also get money to use by watching videos about the company. I just signed up, and I already have $100 to spend on my next purchase.

They’re all-natural and safe for you and your family. They don’t contain any harsh chemicals that can damage your body. At the meeting, they talked about how regular cleaning products are just as dangerous as smoking. They sell cleaning products, vitamins, snacks, drinks, skincare, makeup, even stuff for workouts, and snacks for your cats and dogs. Their products are derived from plants, and they use that information they find out to help create products that are safe for you, your kids, your pets, and the environment.

So, when I signed up on to the melaleuca site through my brother, I got the Sei Bella skincare products. I found out about this through my brother Richard who sells their products. I went to a gathering before all the Covid-19 stuff started and found out more about the products he sells.

Their cleaning products work so well! The toilet bowl cleaner got a stain off that I’ve been trying to get since we moved in. You don’t need a whole lot of cleaning products to get stuff clean. You only need one pump of laundry detergent to get your clothes clean. If you want to make them smell good, they have a pod you can put in that makes them smell really good and gets stains off your clothes. I tried the cleaning stuff because my mom got it for the house. You can buy the solution which is in a concentrated form and for a couple dollars buy a spray bottle that goes with the solutions and tell you how to mix it.

We ordered coffee grounds from them. I’m trying it right now, and it’s not bad. It’s full of a depth of flavor. We’ll see if it upsets my tummy. They told us it’s low in acid, so it shouldn’t. But we’ll see after I drink this cup.

So back to the skincare. I’ve been using it since I got it, and so far, it’s making my skin really soft, and it feels really hydrated. I got the ones for oily skin. They have some for dry skin as well. They have skincare called Sei Bella, which is their luxury line, and they have Affinia, which is more drug store line. I got the Sei Bella line because I wanted to try the more luxurious products that they compare to la prairie, which is a line that’s worth between $200 and $1000 for their products. If I could get the same type of skincare for only $90, I was going to take it. I’ve never tried la prairie, but I’ve always wanted to. My skin has been clear of blemishes, and my fine lines have improved around my eyes. I’ve been trying these products for exactly a month and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I’ve been using them twice a day for a month, and I still have a great deal of product left. I think they’ll last me a good month or two more. I would highly recommend using the skincare line, Sei Bella.

I think the next thing I’m going to buy and try out is their makeup. I want to try a full face of makeup through them and give it my honest thoughts and wear tests. I also want to try out their hair care line to see how that works on my thin oily hair.

If you want to sign up, let me know. I can put you in contact with my brother, who can sign you up. You need to sign up through a person. You’re not required to sell anything when you sign up unless you want to. You’re signing up to be a customer, and that’s it. I know my brother can give you more in-depth information about the company.
