7 things I wish I knew

It has been my intention all week to show up and say hello here… But then life has its way of reminding me who is boss. I am learning to take this a lot more graciously given that I haven’t had electricity for about 30 hours now and that just made me lose 1 full day worth of work. I want to be upset but I mostly feel helpless about this whole situation.

Shorty shorts

I started this post debating the spelling of shorty. Is it shortie or shorty? I’m not sure but when I figure it out I will definitely correct the spelling. anyway how are we stanning a consistent queen? (because I am the consistent queen ahem!)

We caught up 10 days ago… Ish. in between then, I have had immunization done against the panoramic.(the misspelling is intentional) That’s literally the biggest news I currently have just because everything else pretty much is rinse and repeat. How have you been? Hope you have been doing well.

I am currently holding my head in my palms in shame…. I haven’t shown up here sufficiently in Quarter 1 and I noticed this because the writing prompts page on my journal is blank.

I actually shared a bit of that on this Instagram post.

Masking for the win!!

Every time my skin behaves, I do a little happy dance because if like me you have acne, you know how real the struggle can be. One of the steps that I have taken is to mask my face 2-3 times a week. This may actually seem a lot to people but it has been working for my skin… To keep it calm. I am still learning to manage my skin and show up in the best way possible and that has meant listening to what my skin needs.

How I am choosing a dermatologist

The year is 2020, I finally promised myself that I would go see a dermatologist. Not because my acne is getting worse, but just because I recognize the wealth of experience and insight that they could add to my skin care…and also acne. Quarantine had me learn a whole lot of things, including but not limited to how ill informed and under researched my skin care practices had been over the years. I literally cringe every time I go through my skin care tab on my blog…. but again trust the process.
