Things I Never Expected at Age 23.

Hello all!

It's been a while since I last posted. A lot and I mean a lot of things have happened in my life. I never imagined that I would end up in a five car pile up on vacation just several months ago. My car was totaled of course.

It was while I was at a weekend long concert and everything bad that could happen did happen. It rained horribly. My hotel wasn't properly booked. We almost forgot the tickets and the concert was two hours away from home. I never got to eat at my favorite restaurants there because the accident happened on the way to the restaurant. Sigh. It was a very crazy part of my life.

And then the bigs new happened...I became pregnant shortly after that vacation. I never knew if I wanted kids but I thought I'd have them later in life. At first I was scared. Then I started to realize I'm at one of the better parts of my life. I have stable income. I'm with my loving significant other and have been for nine years. It's become a blessing. And I've never been happier.

Although my job has become very stressful. I work with someone who calls off or needs to leave work at least once a week, and in my department, we only have three workers. It's very stressful on me especially in this part of my life. My hormones are going crazy and I don't like my work schedule being messed with weekly. I need a steady idea of how my week is going to go but it's been getting messed up non-stop for at least two months straight.

I wish I would blog more and I always promise to do it but then life hits me with something completely unexpected. And then I stop blogging because I get lost in my own life.

It's something I wish I could grasp. I feel like I'm a while away from getting that grasp on my life.

Thankfully though I have been writing for these past few months while I wasn't queasy. I completed a middle grade novel that I hope to pitch to agents in the upcoming months before my baby arrives. I wish more than anything that I could stay home with my baby while he or she grows up but I don't know if I will be able to financially or not. It would be my dream but as life has shown many of us, dreams aren't always easy to succeed.

But I will never stop trying to make any of my dreams possible. I would love to become an author and be a stay at home mother more than anything in the world. But I guess time will tell. My dearest little one is due March 3rd and I hope the world that I can spend my every moment with them while they grow up.

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…
