First, I haven’t been around much because I’ve been pretty sick with the cold or flu. I haven’t felt like doing much of anything. I should also share the things I got for Christmas: a soundbar, a Caboodles makeup case, Ed Hardy Gas Leak shoes, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, Panasonic Lumix camera, an origami necklace based on Heavy Rain, SkullCandy headphones, Eco Tools brushes, Little Big Planet 2 and more! I had a really great Christmas
And this year I have a list of resolutions I hope to accomplish:
- Lose 3-5 pounds
- Eat healthy
- No alcohol
- Get clear skin
- Grow my hair
- Keep blogging!
Getting healthy isn’t easy at all. Well for now I don’t feel so good and can’t do my yoga, but I often don’t have time to exercise. I hope to begin regular yoga this week! Eating right is also not simple because I enjoy going out to eat and I like tasty things! I have bought lower fat or fat free options. I’m also incorporating spinach, lean meats, and other good-for-you snacks into my diet.
There was a girl who sounded similar to me with skin issues but I can’t find her blog now. She tried everything and finally found that fish oil helped her skin. I’ve decided to try fish oil as well as saw palmetto which I’ve heard is like a natural Accutane. I just started taking them today and if I have any side effects I will stop the saw palmetto first because it can cause side effects.
I also just rubbed a banana peel on my face. I’ve seen and read great things about their healing properties. Although, I have a crazy break out right now! I’ve actually not looked this bad for a long time. It may just be my flu mixed with the New Year but I hope to clear it up soon with these supplements and that banana!
By Odin’s Beard, my hair will be long this year! I will get trims but I want the length to reach my shoulders. I did just dye it, twice. I had it a little lighter with the peroxide and baking soda but of course hot roots. So I used Ion Medium Ash Blonde with Unred and I really hated the results. A few days later (today) I chose a new brand that I have never used before: AGE Beautiful.
I never thought about using it because it’s for gray-haired people and I’m not that. However, I loved it. I got Light Ash Brown which has a green base. They also have Light Cool Brown with a purple base. They even have a dark purple brown color which I love but I don’t want to go that dark. I may do a review on it later once the color has had time to “settle”.
My blog should be more active now that I’m feeling better! I have my post about my new make up case and ELF cosmetics coming tomorrow. Also, look for a review of that hair dye and even a giveaway! There will also be more of my hair growth blogs and I will be starting a clear skin series to show my progress.
