I’d love to see these in some more shades in the future, a neutral, a dusky pink, things like that. I’m Very impressed with the Luxe range, MUA, well done, very very well done indeed!
All in all, a lovely little set of purchases. I really do enjoy the Body Shop and they have such good sales, so regularly, it’s hard not to get a bargain or two!
Obviously I’m not going to post things that I’v’e got as presents as that’s a little silly/unfair but suffice to say they’re rather cool and I think that people will like them.
If you didn’t see my first post on it then I’ll link it HERE – It’s just a basic run down of some of the symptoms that I deal with having fibromyalgia. Even the title shows you that I was planning on doing so much with it, that was supposed to be post #1 of many. Turns out, though, that whenever I come to talk about it in any real depth, to get into the emotions and the actual issues involved… I reach a sort of blockade.
I saw a specialist in Bath a couple of weeks ago and he did a number of checks on different parts of my body, we ran through my symptoms, talked about it all and he confirmed that I have what he said was a ‘very active case of fibro’ – I have no idea what that means but I guess there’s no harm in getting some confirmation sometimes.
The thing is, with these medications, is that sometimes they’ll seem fab for a week and then the effects get lesser and lesser. As such there’s such a big chance that in a week or so time I’ll have lost the help I’ve gained from these – I hope I won’t because I am loving the difference, I’ve had tears in my eyes over the differences it has made in certain areas of my life. But, if it doesn’t last then I will, at least, enjoy the time that I do have with things being slightly improved.
My blood tests all came up fine so there’s no answer to why I passed out a couple of months ago – It’s great to know there’s nothing big wrong but it’s scary to know that this could just happen again. I just need to be even more careful – The fibro means I have to force myself to go slower, to not push myself, but if I get even the slightest inkling of one of the funny turns that lead me towards passing out then I have to just stop and wait for it to pass.
All in all – The lyrica has helped a little, and I hope it stays that way. I’ve not been posting much recently, I know there was a string of posting every day but they were scheduled a while back, I’ve barely blogged in a couple of weeks. That’s down to the fibro, I’ve been suffering from tremendous, very regular headaches, the exhaustion has been pretty consuming and the pain has been really bad – And, so, I’m sure you’ll understand that’s why the blog hasn’t been moving forward as well as I’d like. But I’m not going anywhere, I may take breaks from time to time but this blog is one of the things that helps keep me sane whilst I battle this condition and so I’m not giving it up for any reason.
I was so pleased to get here because it’s been something I’ve been watching for for a while now and it feels like a lovely milestone to have reached. So, thank you lovely readers, your interest in what I write makes me so happy.
For a while now I’ve had a plan that once I reached 100k I’d do my next giveaway – I’ve had a stash of things I’ve been putting together (much like my previous beauty bundle type giveaways) and it’s been my plan to give that away to whoever wins this time… But sometimes plans don’t come to fruition. Thankfully in this instance it’s a good thing, the reason my plans are changing is because I have another giveaway which I’m going to run instead! It’s going to be a very exciting giveaway and it’s going to be International!
