Lacking Confidence

New Update for Beauty Gabbers: November 8th, 2015, March 16th 2016

So if you can see from above I’ve been meaning to write this a while ago. Anyway, I’ve been lacking on posting a whole bunch simply because my skin has been miserable. Like really bad to the point I was having elementary school flashbacks where I constantly had my oily bangs on my forehead and that caused my forehead to have all these little bumps. It was terrible! I have some photos I tried to take of them before I tried fixing them, but I really hated them and what’s worse is that I had no clue why they began!

After a while (and lots of googling) I found out they were clogged pores. I knew they weren’t acne because I never have had an issue with it, plus all the acne products I tried did nothing. So I got myself some products with salicylic acid and micro-scrubs and went to town. It took months, I mean months to get it back to where it used to be and it still can get bad when I ignore my skin for too long since that oily skin still builds up and gets all gross. I’ve included some of the products that I’ve used to get it back to decent skin, and I’ll let you know what I still use and what is kind of my second string backup items. And no, I don’t use these every day, just as their results are needed, like if I use the Olay scrub, I won’t use Vasanti.


The Details

  • Get my Face Clean:
    • Olay Fresh Effects Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub

Well I’ve been having some issues with Microsoft Word and can’t copy and paste pages right now and because of that here are some photos of bath products I’ve been working on. I’m trying to take better care of my skin and body, so I’ve made some bath fizzies with almond oil and I can say my skin has never been softer!! I’m in love as cheesy as that sounds! Anyway, photos!


AllBathBombs1 BathBombsamplesThese are just smaller versions of my bath fizzies, just some of the left over bits that couldn’t make it into the larger bath fizzie mold.

RhageBathBomb1 RhevBathBombs1Both of these fizzies are inspired by characters from the Black Dagger Brotherhood. The top one is Rhage. Light blue and darker blue for the cover of the book and scented in Bite Me (s scent that smells like Coke and Dr. Pepper) and lemon (Mary’s scent). The second one is Rehvenge, dark purple and smells like vanilla raspberry, yum!


Ok so we all know the drill, life happens people get busy, yada yada…and that’s no different for me. So here are some photos of what I’ve been up to since I’ve been away. Plus I’m feeling under the weather today so words aren’t really coming that easily to me right now.
I’ve been working on my room. Redoing most of it and this is the result.



I made some homemade soap for Christmas presents this year and now I’m hooked!



Overall it was a challenging year and here’s to a good start for 2014!

So onto some skin care products I’ve used up. I know the photo shows some mascaras as well but I’ll deal with those in the next post. So (thankfully) I’ve never had too many issues with my skin. I did have some major issues in elementary school but that was due to having very oily hair and always having bangs; my forehead always was bad. So onto the cleansing regime!

What two posts in one day?!? That’s right, I have a lot of empty products I’ve been saving to do some final thoughts on. So this post is for some more hair care items that don’t necessarily fall into the shampoo & conditioner label. Although I do have some products that do, they just couldn’t fit into the last photo 🙂
