Mom Life

I knew being a mom would be hard. I mean it's a given. That's all everyone tells you when you're pregnant. They also tell you it's the best thing in the world. Which is true.

But they don't tell you just how hard it really is.

I means it's beyond rough.

Especially the first twelve weeks. I mean your baby was comfortably in the womb for practically nine months. Then they come into this world. A world we can barely comprehend ourselves. Then we expect them to be fine. To be able to sleep alone. To nap alone. To be alone period. Dear God, is it rough having your newborn scream and cry when you put her down for a second. It's not easy. Sometimes you have to put her down so you can take a sip of water.

It sucks realizing you have literally given up yourself. No more taking that nap you wanted. No more taking long showers and baths every night. Hell I've had to give up my daily cup of hot tea in the morning. I just don't have time.

And for all those people who tell you to nap when the baby naps. You're all liars!!! My daughter won't nap without napping on me.

Nobody ever told me being a mom was all about deciding whether I should go pee, nap, or eat, or shower. I knew it wouldn't be easy but I didn't realize I would literally lose everything about myself. Sometimes I don't even brush my hair. Hell I've gone a whole week without showering! Gah. I hate feeling dirty. But my little one needs me.

I know it'll get easier but sometimes it's hard to remember that when all you can do is sit on the couch all day watching your house getting more nasty by the day. Whoo!

And no, sitting on the couch all day is not as fun as it sounds. My legs hurt so bad by the end of the day. I can't even begin to tell you how much it sucks. I want hot meals again. I want to feel clean. I want to take a breath of air!

But this is what being a mom is about. It's not about me. My newborn can't take care of herself so she relies on me for everything. And I love her. And I realize this isn't forever. So I need to make the most out of this time cause eventually I'll miss every moment of cuddling with my baby girl. I already get sad some days cause she already looks bigger.

And she's only two months old. Man I'll be a weeping mess of a mother as she grows up. Haha.

But even though all of this is hard, I would never give up any of it.

And that's the wonderful part of being a mom. Getting to raise this little one and give her the world I want her to have.

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…
