Accutane | Week 18

As I sat here choking on my Accutane pill I realized I hadn't done my weekly Accutane post.

Last week and the beginning of this week have been tremendously stressful and unsatisfying.
I have finally written my exam, worked like a dog and slept like a bird.

There definitely is no rest for the wicked.

I'm not sad. I'm just sleepy.

I've had more coffee than food this week which puts my skin at a disadvantage. It is dry, weathered and sallow.

I probably shouldn't complain.

I was so busy last week I forgot to take a double dose on the weekend. Also, my skin care regime has almost completely gone out the window. Next week I will reap the result of neglecting my skin.

Upside this week... overtime pay (obviously after taxes it's a little less of an upside)

Any-hoo, hope your doing well and I pray you haven't forgotten about me.

Hey guys,
I was nominated by a couple people for the Liebster Award!

8. I love online-window shopping
9. I always make a mental note to go get a massage and never do it
10. I am a very cluttered person. When I clean I re-evaluate my life, relationships, jobs and my feelings… so cleaning doesn't happen frequently
11. I am currently hungry

1. Who inspires you?
My sister. She is so loving, open and generous. She’s constantly thinking of others and when we need a stern hand she will give you one (figuratively and literally).

2. Who is your favourite blogger?
I rotate monthly who my favourite beauty blogger is… right now it has to be Louise from SprinkleofGlitter. I am coarse, abrupt and feisty  She is bubbly, spontaneous and happy.
She is exactly what I needed to be reading this month.

3. What is your favourite beauty product?
Why do I have to list only one!
It would have to be foundation (this month).
If I had pretty good skin I would choose blush. There I added my second favourite… I’m so sneaky.

4. If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
… Difficult one again… I am either super mellow or crazy. I will choose...  Mi Jesus, Mi Amado (Instrumental version)                                        

5. What object is an absolute must-have?
Phone. Done. Nothing more to say here.

6. What is your favourite book?
I wish I had something intellectually stimulating to add here but I don’t have a favourite. I do like Monster of Florence, The Surgeon, I Know You Really Love Me… and some random romance novels. Honestly I haven’t had time to read recently. Also, I don’t like scary movies but I do enjoy a good scary novel.

7. What is your favourite place in the whole world?
My house. When no one is in it.

8. What was your most embarrassing moment?
It was the time I asked a girl if… no I didn't ask. I said, ‘Oh, you’re pregnant’. It semi-sounded like a question but it was more a statement.

9. How long have you been blogging for?
4 months. Technically I had started a blog back in 2011. Then deleted it. It was mediocre and lame.
Shhhh... don't be mean! I know what you're thinking.

10. What is your favourite movie?
North and South, BBC Production. Yes, it’s 4 hours long and to summarize the movie it’s like pride and prejudice.

11. What is the best thing about blogging?
The people you get to meet.

My questions are pretty boring and have no order.
Here ya go:
1. Are you a home-body or an outdoors lover?
2. Would you prefer a five star hotel or sleep under the stars?
3. What is your favourite number?
4. What is your most popular post?
5. What inspires your writing?
6. Coffee or tea?
7. How do you feel about ageing?
8. What is your favourite lip balm?
9. What designer best reflects your style?
10. What is a beauty secret/tip you swear by?
