New Book.

One of my favorite authors, Maggie Stiefvater, is coming out with a new book, called The Raven Boys. If you've never heard of her before, she wrote The Shiver Trilogy, Lament, Ballad, and The Scorpio Races. She's a wonderful writer, and the whole reason I began writing in the first place. When I read Shiver, which is about a girl who watches the wolves in her back woods and falls in love with one of the werewolves, it impacted me in a way I can't explain. It made me want someone to have such deep emotions about my first book which I began writing two years ago.

Anyways, her style is much different from others. Her stories aren't too complicated. They are about real life things, but with paranormal elements such as fairies, werewolves, and water horses. She has wonderful imagery and can impact you so hard with her stories. I cried in most of her books. And she doesn't write for the money. She pitched out one of her drafts once because she hated it that much. She didn't want to feed her readers with something unworthy. I respect her for that.

Well, her new series, which will have 4 books, is coming out soon, well the first one at least. I'm not quite sure what it's about, but it sounds pretty cool. Again, it's called the Raven Boys.



And did I forget to mention that I'm now reading the Hunger Games. Well, I am, and so far am in love!

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
