Hey there! It’s been a little while! To catch you all up to date, I had surgery a week ago. I had an arthrocentesis procedure done on both of my jaw joints. It’s done to drain the extra fluid (inflammation causing) in those joints, then they flush them out and lubricate them. I also got steroid injections in the muscles while I was under. I had to be under general anesthesia, but it was an outpatient procedure. I was glad to get to go home and not have to stay in the hospital. A week later, I’m still recovering and still have some soreness. I hope this procedure helps with my TMJ pain in the long run.
So how’s everyone doing? Today was a day that finally looked and felt like spring. We recently had snow and frozen rain here in Michigan, but today was sunny and much warmer. I was feeling up to doing a post this evening, so I thought I would do a get to know me type of post. I have some newer readers I’m thinking, and these types of posts are always great for letting others know a little more about yourself. It’s just random questions…
1. Thing you cannot leave the house without.
I’d rather not leave the house without my purse. It has my wallet, keys, phone, lip balm, etc…
2. Favorite Brand of Makeup.
This is such a hard question! I really love Tarte. I love the collections they come out with, including the most recent mermaid one! Let me know if you want a review on their Mermaid palette. I also really like Too Faced, I loved their peach collection. For a more inexpensive brand, I’ve been enjoying the Colourpop pressed shadows. I really should do a post sometime on one of the Colourpop palettes that I own.
3. Favorite Flowers.
I love the traditional roses, and I love the Tiger Lilies that pop up in front of my house too.
4. Favorite clothing stores.
I usually buy clothes from Maurices or Torrid. I’m a plus-size, and Maurices has a nice plus-size selection along with non-plus/straight sizes.
5. Favorite perfume.
I’m sensitive to specific overpowering scents, my go-to favorite is White Woods by CLEAN. It’s a light woodsy scent.
6. Heels or Flats.
Having a bad back and being 6 ft tall, I wear flats.
7. Do you make good grades?
I did in school. I haven’t been in school in many years.
8. Favorite colors.
My favorite color is purple. I also like green, blue, and pink.
9. Do you drink energy drinks?
The closest thing I drink to an energy drink is the Starbucks Vanilla Double Shot Energy Drink. I don’t drink them everyday or anything, but often.
10. Do you drink juice?
I really don’t drink juice. Maybe once in a great while.
11. Do you like swimming?
Yes I do, though it’s been a long time. Unfortunately my skin is sensitive to chlorine.
12. Do you eat fries with a fork?
Who really does that!? I prefer to eat them with my hands dipped in delicious ketchup!
13. What’s your favorite moisturizer?
From what I’ve tried lately, I have been enjoying products from Kiehl’s. I have been able to try quite a few things from them since I bought a couple of value sets at Christmas time. I think they were on sale then too possibly, I can’t remember. I recently received my first Influenster Box that was filled with some LA Roche-Posay goodies, maybe there will be some new favorites!
14. Do you want to get married later on in life?
Yes I do. It’s my dream to one day marry my long-time love ❤
15. Do you get mad easily?
I try not to. I don’t think I do usually.
16. Are you into ghost hunting?
No! I’d rather not see anything like that!
17. Any phobias?
Spiders, heights, and I have trypophobia.
18. Do you bite your nails?
I have off and on during my life. I’m trying not to bite them, it’s an anxious habit. I can’t really bite them right now having a sore jaw.
19. Have you ever had a near death experience?
No, I don’t think so…
20. Do you drink coffee?
Yes, I do. I think I liked iced/cold coffee drinks better.
Well that’s it for the questions. I hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I got this tag from V from Say Hello to Gorgeous. Actually, I somehow found it even though it’s from 2015. I think I was looking through her old posts to see what she had posted a long time ago. V has a great blog though, so definitely check it out! I’m not going to tag anyone, but feel free to do this one. Let me know if you do! Thanks for reading! xo
