Labyrinth - Sarah

wow... been awhile...

I know I haven't really written anything in awhile but nothing is really going on.
Been watching the kids. I've just been kinda bored with everything lately. I go thru these phases. I am bored with the internet I am bored with phone calls i am just bored. I think it's probably got something to do with it being winter and that i am SOOO sick of winter.

I have been fairly active on twitter and friendfeed  But since those are pretty much micro blogging it's easier. Since I haven't had much to say lately. (and for those I IM with you know i have been way boring lately) I just really have not had the attention span to do anything but microblog.. sad Eh?

I have to start tanning soon my brother's wedding is in april and i would like to have some color and I know that tanning might actually help my mood. I think that is another thing for my mood being the way it has been. My one brother just had a baby the other is getting married and YET i am still single ... pretty darn single. OK it maybe shouldn't bother me but it kinda does i mean i am getting older and it sucks (picture marissa tomei in my cousin vinny where she's screaming about her biological clock ticking) Yea that's me.
Times like this i wonder am i just unloveable?? Do i suck that much that no one wants to be around me willingly???
ok this is getting depressing so I will cut this short. I dont wanna bring EVERYONE down.
I hope you are all having a great weekend and i hope to update again soon and hopefully have something mroe cheerful to say.

Review: LUSH Tea Tree Water toner

Ok this is an unexpected rave since I generally loathe lush.
I've been using this for 2 weeks. I am seeing improvements to my face. I have areas that are blackhead prone... yea gross but it's a fact of life.
My nose and the areas around my nose have them.
Since I have been using Tea Tree Water i have seen an improvement on them.
I haven't really changed my routine that much I have added the dreaded LUSH Fresh Farmacy face wash in the rotation but i generally use origins get down and check and balance as my face washes. I want to get rid of FF so i figured i'd start using it. (even though it when i use it with a face brush to wash my face the film doesn't seem as bad on my skin weird.. but i digress)

I've used other toners but of course they contain alcohol and burned the living crap out of my skin and made the oil production in my face go overboard.
I can't really say much for curbing oil production since I have been using thick moisturizers on my face which make me a tad more oily anyway.
I haven't done my makeup in a couple weeks and since I haven't done my face i've been exclusively using my burt's bees beeswax moisturizing day creme.
I like that this toner does not contail alcohol i don't need to "feel the burn" to know something works. Kinda like that crest pro heath mouthwash commercial lol.

My excema is been at bay which could be the moisturizer the toner and the face washes in the "rotation" so i won't say that this toner is keeping that in check.

I would say the most noticable thing is the blackheads becoming more non existant which makes me happy. My skin hasn't been without them since I was using Jojoba oil to moisturize with. I stopped because it was getting colder out and the jojoba wasn't cutting it moisture wize and i needed more for my skin.

I didn't want to write about this toner until I had given it a few weeks and I've used it every time i wash my face which on some days is twice a day and others just once. I have also a few times just used this toner mid day and wiped my face.

I only bought the 3.3 fl oz bottle and I have to say I still have a ton left but i am planning on buying the bigger bottle once i run out.

Writer's Block: Words to Live By

What is your personal motto or favorite quotation?

I found this ages ago when i was going thru some issues with an ex and these words meant so much i wish i remembered where i found this quote i would love to give credit.

"What is the sum of a man if he cannot keep his word? His word that represents all that he can be, will be and is in this world and beyond"

and then there is "actions speak louder than words" that also made lots of sense in that relationship, thank god that's over lol
