Life Update

Hey there beauties! TGIF! Yay for Friday! I know that my blog posts have been few and far between, and I haven’t read many of your posts as much as I’d like. I have my good days and my bad days. Lately, I seem to have some more bad days. I just thought I would do an update post and talk about what’s going on with me and my health. 

For a few months now, I have been dealing with jaw and ear pain, even pain in my neck. I have tinnitus in my right ear frequently, and I can’t hear too well out my right ear either. The pain is the worst on the right, but I do have some on the left. At first my primary doctor thought it was from allergies and fluid in my ear, makes sense. After changing up my allergy meds and being in those for a while, the pain has continued. My jaw pops a lot, and I have muscle spasms. So, as far as I know, it’s TMJ. TMJ is Temporomandibular joint disfunction. 

Since I have chronic illnesses/autoimmune conditions, it’s still important to get this checked out, especially since it’s affecting my hearing. The cause of TMJ can come from autoimmune conditions. It’s been an extra painful thing I’ve had to deal with for a few months now. 

Tomorrow I have to get an x-ray to see if there is anything my Rheumatologist can see. If needed, I may end up having an MRI. I have an appointment next week as well to be examined by my Rheumatologist. I actually have like 2 specialists appointments next week. I really dread having to go to any appointments. I really just don’t like to HAVE to be anywhere. 

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what’s been going on lately. I’m just pacing myself and posting when I can. I am hoping to get this pain more manageable so I can do the things I enjoy in life, such as writing and reading blog posts. I hope to be more active in the WordPress beauty community soon. 

I’m going to try to work on a post reviewing the products I’ve tried in this month’s (September’s) Boxycharm. There were a lot of great things in that box!  I hope you will be looking forward to that. I hope you enjoy these little life update posts of mine. If you have any questions or just want to say hi!! Please feel free to leave a comment. Have a great weekend! ❤

Taking a break…

Hey there! I just wanted to write a post here to let you know that I’m taking a break from the blog for a little while. I haven’t been able to spend time on it as much as I’d like to. I just have a lot going on lately and will be back when things settle down. 

I have had some health stuff going on lately, no worries though, I’m okay. I’ve had a lot of appointments though, and in between the appointments, I’m just trying to take care of myself. 

On top of that, I’m also apartment/townhouse hunting. I have a list of places I’m interested in, but have yet to get out to actually look at them, and go there in person. My significant other has some vacation time starting next week, which would be the best time to finally get out and look!

 I’m looking to move as soon as possible. So in the meantime, we have to start some packing and get a head start on that. I’m not moving very far, just would like more of an “upgraded” place to live. 

Going along with my health stuff, I’ve been diagnosed with Rosacea recently. I just started treatment for that a little over a week ago, and am trying to stay away from trying any new or different makeup/skin care products for a little bit. My skin routine is definitely more simple and gentle now. I plan on trying to only wear makeup on special occasions for a little while. 

Not that I haven’t bought and hoarded my share of makeup lately…Though, I need to chill for a while and go on a no-buy/low-buy. Anyhow, I will still be active and present on social media of course. I have some pictures and things to share on Instagram as per usual.

I also have the WordPress app on my phone and will still recieve and reply to notifications. Though I don’t get too many comments these days, due to my lack of effort I’m sure. I do apologize for that as well. Thank you to those of you that do read my posts and comment. It’s very much appreciated! I hope that everyone has a great weekend! I will be back soon! 💋

P.S. You can connect with me on social media if you would like to, if you don’t already. There are icons in my side menu. Also, if we’re friends on Instagram, don’t forget to check out my Instastories. I post random things and makeup things on there often. ❤ xo

Be Back Soon!

Hey there! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I’m sorry that I haven’t been on here in a while to read or comment on your posts. I was very busy getting ready for Christmas and all of that good stuff. Now I’m not feeling too well, and I think I overdid it. When you have a chronic illness/pain, you need to pace yourself. Some of you know about my health issues, but if anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Anyhow, my best friend is here in Michigan and I’m planning on hanging out with her for a few days at the end of the week. I haven’t seen her in over a year. I am just trying to take it easy and rest up the next couple of days. I don’t think I will be able to get a new post up this week, but I will get one up next week. I hope you all have a great week! I’m looking forward to returning and getting back into the groove of things. 
Much Love! ❤
