Short Story!

My first short story post! And it's an omitted scene from my finished book, told in the main guy's perspective. If you don't know anything about my book, it's told in two perspectives, Rusty(a girl) and Vaan(the guy). Maybe if you guys end up like this omitted scene, I could post the 1st chapter to the real thing, maybe. I am very protective over my story, so it depends on if I receive enough comments on this snippet from it.

Now, let's remember, I omitted this scene before I ever went into the revising/editing stages, but I tried my best to spice it up just for you guys.

And here it is:

     The dream started out like any other—the ones that keep haunting me. I stand on the dirt plateau millions of miles high above the ocean as she holds my hand, and we gaze out into the peach colored horizon armed with millions of black clouds.
     “Forever?” she asks as we stand on the edge, staring out into the depths of the deep blue sea. Waves crash, perilously, against the plateau’s chest, crawling up towards us. She looks down as the waves lap farther up the side, licking the dirt away.
     “Always,” I respond, squeezing her hand to gain her attention.
     Her bright silver eyes vision the future of us, and I can tell that’s what she’s picturing. A long breeze sweeps through her hair as her lilac scent draws out. My nose fills with it so I can save it for later. This memory is perfect, so perfect it’s almost tangible. I’ve never felt the word love till now.
    The plateau begins to sunder under our feet which causes a line to divide us. The part she stands on drifts out into the ocean while her hand reaches desperately for mine, but the movement is too fast for us to connect. Her rose twirls into the ocean, falling faster and faster. I dive to save it, to save her soul from death, but it splashes onto the surface, the petals slowly fading...fading into black.
    “No…” my voice falls as the water consumes me. I fight my way to stay above the ocean’s surface, but it feels as if its arms are pulling me under, far far away. The dark army of clouds now veils the horizon, and everything seems to disappear, even the plateau where she once stood.
    “She’s mine now,” a low voice laughs, evil and contorted, and then the waves spill their water into my ears, making my world vanish before me.

So what are your thoughts/comments, if any?

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 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…

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…
