EDIT Yay! Jenna has her Stormy look up! Go see! /EDIT

So Jenna and I decided to do a collaboration. Snarky and Makeup Zombie are having too much fun with it! Jenna suggested 80’s cartoons and then Rainbow Brite, who am I to disagree? xd She’s doing her look inspired by Stormy and I’ve done mine inspired by Tickled Pink! Soon as Jenna gets her look up I’ll add it to my post. :d So onto the look!

Also if you haven’t already, you must go check out the blush that Susan from Darling Girl cosmetics made me. It’s called Pink No Corisu after one of Sanrio’s less popular but still adorable characters. It’s a super bright pink with gold shimmer. Love it. Oh it’s made in her sweet cheek cream base which is awesome. It blends really well and is easy to build up if you want doll cheeks. xd

Also I LOVE Sugarpill. Seriously Decora is gorgeous! It’s this pretty pink with flecks of different colors that just sparkle so pretty. I also love Lumi and Magpie. Lumi is a gorgeous highlight and inner corner color. I think Magpie is going to be my signature black liner instead of my normal black. It’s so pretty.

So uh in the process of making this look I spilled four of my shadows all over the floor. t.t I got up to go to the bathroom and tripped over my keyboard cord which in turn knocked my open shadows onto the floor and my drink all over the table. It was a colorful, wet mess. I thought I broke my keyboard too. t.t But my poor Decora is gone, as is Miasma, Moist and Roxie from My Pretty Zombie. *le sigh* I just got Decora too. The laptop I am currently using has no key pad, so I’ve been using the keyboard from my desktop. The cord is usually under the coffee table but either I forgot to move it under, or it somehow got pulled out. >.<

I did eye shots for Anthrax and Hoof and Mouth today so I thought I’d share. They really are pretty colors! <3 My Pretty Zombie. Oops I forgot to say I used CoffinCritters as well as liner on my upper lid.

I just have a few reminders/things to note! :d

#1 Voting for the Beauty Blog Awards are almost over! Will you please vote for me as best beauty blog? :d Pretty, pretty please? <3 Thank you!

#2 The awesome sauce My Pretty Zombie sale ends today! Don’t forget to head on over and use code THIRTYTHREE to get 33% off!

#3 My poor forums are lonely and sad. Will you register and post? I want a happy community of people who enjoy talking with each other! :d mb.toxid-lotus.net

#4 So I’ve seen some mild concern, I don’t even know if concern is the right word? But I’ve seen people recently who have had issues with swatches from indie companies. More importantly issues with eye swatches. They aren’t getting the color they expect from the photos. They are usually on photos where there is clearly or sometimes not so clearly more than one shade of shadow on someones eye. My question to you is, do you prefer eye swatches to have JUST the color you are currently looking at so you know what color you are really getting, or do you not care? I do realize that do to monitor differences and lighting differences colors may not always be exact, but there is no excuse for a color to be extremely different from what is pictured.

I personally prefer to see just the color I am purchasing/looking at. It’s easy to think you’re getting a different color when part of it is blended with something else, and sometimes it’s not so obvious there are multiple colors on an eye. When it’s just the one shade it’s easy to see what you’re getting. I think if you want to show how it blends with other colors, that is awesome, but please include a photo of just that color on your eye ball so I can really see it. :d So uh that’s my two or probably twenty-five cents. hehehe

#5 We REALLY need a working lawn mower. We also need a weed whacker. We’ve been paying the neighbor kids behind us to mow our lawn. They get $20 every other week to do it, and do a really crappy job. Kai keeps having to go out and remind them to cut all of the lawn and they still miss stuff. It’s just frustrating. We have a mower, but it’s electric and it died when Kai mowed the lawn with it after a rain. t.t He probably should have picked out a gas mower, but he wanted and electric one so we didn’t have to deal with the gas. He was worried about it being in the garage and making me sick. Also if it were a perfect world and we were rich I’d also love something like this: echo hedge trimmer. We don’t have a lot of bushes but we have a few giant ones that I’d really like trimmed back. Oh well. Maybe one day.

#6 I’m really tired today. I was feeling better yesterday and ran some errands and picked up some extra goodies for Stephanie because I still haven’t gotten her giveaway package shipped out to her. :( I feel awful about it so I picked up a few surprises for her that I hope she likes. I’m hoping to get it shipped out in the next couple of days. It’s been one thing after another since I got sick. But I overdid it and am now paying for it today. Kharizma stopped by yesterday so I could fix her computer and she brought me TONS of yummy red and green leaf lettuce, kale and chard from her garden. I made a giant salad last night which was delicious. I’m going to turn the kale into kale chips hopefully later. Then I made miso soup from dinner which turned out delicious. Tonight I’m supposed to make teriyaki salmon. Hopefully I’m up to it. Right now I’m not sure. So far though my blood sugar hasn’t been wildy out of control since I got back on my gabapentin. This morning it was 149. So hooray.

#7 Apparently I have a chiropractor appointment today that I’d totally forgotten about. t.t I just want to curl up and go to bed. le sigh

I guess I had more to say than I thought. :shifty:

I won’t say I’m feeling much better, but I am definitely feeling better. My doctors visit on Wednesday was wonderful. My doctor actually went over to the pharmacy and got me a Gabapentin to take after I told her what had been happening. It was a great visit I shared a lot with her, she is definitely willing to work with me. They took six vials of blood for tests. She thinks I have a co-infection and is hoping my blood work will giver her some idea of where to start since she isn’t familiar with Lyme. I’m just thrilled that she’s willing to try to help me. If I haven’t said before, my doctor is somewhat of a hippie/new age/whatever works let’s do it kind of doctor. She said I was a faerie incarnate and told me to get back into what makes me truly happy. Which I’m going to do. And I won’t lie her telling me I was a faerie incarnate made me warm and fuzzy inside. xd I want to plaster our walls with crystals and told her as much.

She told me to do it. When my mom moved in with us I kind of set my beliefs and passions for spiritual things aside because I couldn’t deal with the comments from my mom. She isn’t able, or at least wasn’t able, I don’t know anymore, to let me believe what I believe. So it was just easier to set it aside than listen to the backhanded comments. I only recently started to kind of get back into it. I pulled my crystals and pendulum out and put what few crystals I had left around my bed. I’m at the point where, I’m willing to do whatever is going to help me and I miss that part of me. So don’t be surprised when you see random posts about crystals, or various other “strange” things, because they’re normal to me. hehe It’s was funny though.

The day before I saw Dr. Bobby our chiropractor. He at one point called me and indigo child, which my doctor also did on Wednesday. My chiro also told me at one point that I needed to go play with the faeries. I’m still not quite sure if he was serious or not. haha I’ve got crazies trying to help my crazies yo! I wouldn’t have it any other way. :d

That’s right, it should be rather short. I’m starting to feel better. At least I’m not throwing every blessed thing I eat or drink up. I’ve been able to keep down some food and still watered down juices. I think it was the Naproxen that was making me sick. After looking it up again it finally sunk in that it was generic Extra Strength Midol/Aleve which I can’t use because they make me vomit horribly. Since I’ve stopped taking the Naproxen I’ve been able to actually keep things down.

Thank the universe, seriously I was going crazy. My body still aches like a mofo, it’s super tender to the touch and the numbness/pins & needles have become much worse. My migraines or I guess I should say migraine is getting worse, and the light nearly blinds me and causes my migraine to hurt more. My right ear is killing me, it feels like someone is stabbing me in the ear and yesterday for whatever reason the top right-ish side of my head became really hot and tender, even to comb my hair puts me in tears. I have no idea what happened, I don’t remember hitting my head, but it sure does hurt.

I have another appointment with the chiropractor which I’m not looking forward to since everything hurts so bad already. t.t Then tomorrow I go see my new doctor again, hopefully things will get sorted out and she’ll either put me back on my gabapentin or have something else to replace it. It’s pretty obvious by now that my pain stems from nerve issues since the vicodin did nothing.

On that note, I know of many, seriously, there are a lot of pregnant people out there right now and I know of a few that just recently gave birth, so you all should go check out baby shower invitations since I know there are a few of you that are planning baby showers and were asking for suggestions. :d

Oh is anyone else having issues with blogger/gfc? I can’t see most of the blogs I follow on blogspot and blogger won’t load at all for me. The last few days I’ve also noticed my gfc thinger is missing again as well.

Now I shall go attempt to actually get dressed. t.t

I feel like death. That’s the only way I can describe how I feel right now. I’ve been off of the gabapentin for a few days and I feel more awful than usual and now extremely panicked. I still can’t keep anything but watered down juices down. I feel like I’m starving. Just when I think I’ve finally eaten something that I’m not going to puke back up, up it comes.

I saw our chiropractor yesterday. I think it was yesterday. I can’t remember now. My mom pretty much made the appointment for me and forced me to go after falling in the shower. It’s been well over a year since I’ve seen him. Only because my body is so sensitive even using the lightest setting on his activator tool it hurts like a bitch. I’m not sure how many times I cried on the way to the chiropractor yesterday, but I know I cried for my entire visit and ended up having a panic attack after my adjustment. Between the pain and the vertigo from the table coming back up I just lost it.

The pain from the adjustment as gentle as he was, was incredibly overwhelming and excruciating. Being car sick and dizzy from the trip there didn’t help. I’m supposed to go back in Tuesday. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it, because I’m not. I know in the long, really, really long run it’ll be helpful. But right now my body is screaming and stiff, and I hurt so bad. I’ve been dizzy constantly for the last couple of days, and I’ve had a migraine since yesterday that won’t go away. My stomach has ached for over a week now. All of my muscles and joints and bones ache and burn and hurt. Last night one or both of my arms from the tips of my fingers up to my shoulder were numb and I couldn’t sleep. My right hand and fingers keep going numb off and on today. My heart/chest won’t stop aching and I feel like I’m suffocating.

All I want to do is cry and sleep, and I can’t sleep and can’t not cry. I’m miserable and I hurt. I don’t want to complain, I want to suck it up, but I can’t. Literally everything hurts, I hurt, and I feel like I’m going crazy.

Sascha has been home since the third and it’s been awesome. Kai decided to take a week off while he was home, however this was the only week he was able to take off. Which kind of sucks because we’d planned on going to the zoo and the coast/aquarium while he was off. That won’t be happening this week since his last check went entirely to rent and some groceries. So we’ll have to go on his regular days off after he gets paid next week. With that said it’s been nice to have him home for a week.

My health has decided to freak out recently. I’m not sure if I ended up with food poisoning or if it was just my lyme freaking out. It sure felt like food poisoning. The past week I’ve been getting car sick. I’ve never been car sick in my life. It’s been so bad that I’ve actually had to go in and get sick at Kai’s work. It’s really frustrating and annoying. Today is the first time in about four days that I’ve kept something other than watered down orange juice down.

This morning Kai got a call from his Uncle Terry asking if they could stop by today. So we had to hurry up and shower and get ready. I’ve had to use a shower chair for awhile now because I can’t stand up long enough to actually finish taking a shower. It causes my heart to pretty much go nuts and I get too lightheaded/dizzy. So when I stood up to turn around and turn the water off my left hip and knee went numb and I fell in the shower, again. The whole reason I started using the chair was because I fell from getting dizzy in the shower a couple of times before. This time I really hurt myself. Beyond it being incredibly upsetting and painful it’s embarrassing and I hate this. I’m just so tired of it. The entire left side of my body feels sore and bruised and completely torqued. My left foot up to my knee is half numb and sore. My left wrist hurts so bad it feels broken and my arms muscles have knots and spasms. My right ankle feels badly sprained. I’m just so much more sore after falling and I ran out of gabapentin last night and have no refills. The naproxen that the new dr put me on does nothing for pain, so now I have absolutely nothing. The gabapentin at least helped a little. The naproxen does nothing. It’s supposed to be extra strong aleve which I told her didn’t help me at all. :( She said she wasn’t going to prescribe me narcotics and wanted me to try this. I was living on otc pain pills before I went in, why are they suddenly going to work now?

I’m just tired of whining and complaining at the doctor, to have them not listen to me. I went in for lyme and pain, and neither are being addressed at all. I wanted something to use for pain while Sascha was here so I could try to do as much as possible without hurting too much. That kind of happened. My first doctor gave me 28 vicodin to use at night. However she prescribed me the lowest dose which I have to double to have any relief at all. So I have 5 left. Bleh. I just want to be able to enjoy all of my time with the kids while Sascha is home instead of dealing with pain and migraines and crazy emotions because my body isn’t functioning. It’s hard to enjoy things when your body is screaming with freaking pain.

Kai’s aunt and uncle ended up taking us out to eat at Sushi & Maki and then took the kids to Toys R Us and got Fumiko a cute hello kitty plushie and Sascha got a halo lego kit. I didn’t eat much and I’m glad I didn’t. I got really car sick on the way home and ended up getting sick after his aunt and uncle left. Goodbye yummy spicy tuna roll. :SICK: Fortunately I’ve kept dinner down so far. Though my back has been hurting more and more. Tonight is going to be fun.

Anyways. Between Sascha being home and being sick, I haven’t been able to get much done. Today is the first time I’ve worn makeup in a week. >.< I know there were spelling errors trying to type one handed, but I can’t find them at the moment and my spell check has decided to stop telling me I’ve misspelled words. >.<

Fumiko has been coming up with some good things this week!

  1. On the way to pick Kai up from work the other day a truck with a long horse trailer pulled up next to us. You could see this lovely white/gray horse from one of the windows on the horse trailer. Fumiko squeeled and mumbled something about the horse, I said “did you see the horse?” and she responds “Yes! Horse go shopping and get hair cut!” Uh, what? lol I told her I didn’t think the horse was going to do that.
  2. Later after we picked Kai up from work we had to stop at Walgreen’s to pick up one of my medications and then went to Fred Meyer to get some apples and cottage cheese for my mom. While we were leaving the parking lot a fire truck pulled in front of us. Fumiko says “what’s that truck?!”, Kai and I told her it was a fire truck. She then says “Fire truck saves world houses?” haha Kai says “yes, fire trucks save the worlds houses from fires.” Then she says “fire truck bring a band aid for Miko’s finger boo boo?”, Kai says “Yes, fire truck brings a band aid for Fumiko’s finger…. if it were chopped off.” lol So then she says “Fire truck bring Miko a hello kitty band aid?” hahahaha Then Kai started talking about how the fire truck should just be hello kitty themed and I said Hello Kitty saves lives… in Japan. Then he reminded me she also prevents pregnancy in Japan. hehehehe
  3. So today we went to Fred Meyer to get toilet paper. I have three hello kitty re-usable shopping bags of awesome. Seriously, they’re awesome. So we brought one, I’m not sure why since we were just getting toilet paper, but anyways! Fumiko likes to carry the bags. Last time Sascha carried one and Fumiko carried one, this time Fumiko carried it as it’s her job! So we get inside the store and Kai offered to take the bag from Fumiko, she says “I can do it myself!”. It was hilarious because she sounded genuinely offended that Kai would offer to take the bag. She’s never said that before. It still makes me laugh.

And this week most of Sascha’s conversations can be summed up by saying Pokemon and Plants vs. Zombies. xd Also, NO you cannot breed two ditto’s and they will not make a super ditto. But in all seriousness I forgot how much Sascha talks. Kai gave him his DS since Sascha’s bit the dust recently. So he’s been playing his old Pokemon Pearl cartridge. Kai and I use to play Pokemon pretty religiously, but I haven’t played for a couple of years and with all my neurological issues I’ve completely forgotten how to play, or at least most of the features of the game. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on Psypoke’s Psydex looking up info for Sascha, breeding him pokemon, catching him pokemon, and trading him pokemon. Who knew I would be up to my ears in pokemon!

Kai took a week off of work so we could take the kids to the coast and to the aquarium and so he’d have a solid chunk of time to spend with Sascha before he goes home. So next week we shall be going to the coast! Hooray! It’ll be Fumiko’s first time to both, and hopefully a trip to the zoo as well. Neither Sascha or Fumiko have been to the zoo here. Fair warning, if all goes as planned and we do both I’ll probably be out of commission for at least a week after, and I probably won’t be on much the next few days so I can try to rest in advance. Oh, the joys of lyme. :ANGRY: That is all except for does adapexin work or has anyone heard anything about it? I was asked about it earlier and I hadn’t ever heard of it. Informations please!

Also dinner has appeared to make me horribly sick tonight. :( Kai made fish and chips. It was his first time frying anything. He did a good job, the fish was tasty, the fries, not so much. :( Thank goodness for the Fry Baby though. I want another one!

Andrea from My Pretty Zombie sent me an awesome care package of eyeshadow including her new ones Miasma and no. 996, and random teeth/severed fingers for Sascha and Fumiko. Miasma is super pretty! It’s this gorgeous buttercup yellow duochrome that shifts to pink. I couldn’t get a good photo of it. :( Am sad. Oh well. No. 996 is a gorgeous shimmery blue! Honestly though out of the bunch Grimdeva is my absolute favorite. It’s an older color that hasn’t been up in the shop because I believe Andrea was out of ingredients to make it. I’m so glad it’s back. It’s GORGEOUS and I love it. I think it is now one of, if not my favorite purple. I luff eet. :LOVE: ALSO! 13 Gypsies is beautiful. It’s like this amazing antique gold color and I don’t even like gold.

Sascha and Fumiko loved the teeth. Fumiko picked out the strangest pair and Sascha decided it would be awesome to wear multiple pairs. Miss Fumiko is happy to have her vampire teeth back. She had a meltdown in the car the other day after she wore her vampire teeth to the store and somehow lost them. She didn’t realize until we got into the car that they were gone. haha I tried to convince her it was okay and she didn’t need the vampire teeth but between sobs she kept saying things like “but maaaamaaaa I neeed be bampiiiiiiiiire.” hahaha

Please forgive the “dirty” fingers and chipped to hell nails. I didn’t realize how much and how many different shades of shadow I’d gotten on my fingers after messing around with MPZ and Hi-Fi shadows until after I uploaded these to edit. By then the sun was gone. So I said screw it. I also haven’t been feeling well and haven’t done anything with my nails in well over a week. Oh don’t forget to vote in the Beauty Blog Awards. Both My Pretty Zombie and I have been nominated!

Random kind of bullet list! Woo! ]

  1. Fumiko wore her vampire teeth that Andrea sent to the store today. Go head click on the link, you know you want to see the vampire cuteness! She lost them. The rest of the car trip was filled with me trying to convince her that she didn’t actually need the vampire teeth and her saying things like “but maaaaaamaaaa I need be baaaaampiiiiiireeeeeeee *sniffle* *sob*” Am I an awful mom for finding the whole thing funny? haha
  2. You all should read and sign the petition to Oppose H.R. 2359: Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011. Help indie companies!
  3. Then you should read and sign the petition to establish Caylee’s Law.
  4. Next you should totally enter my 100 GFC followrs giveaway! It has 152 entries so far! Yikes!
  5. Lastly I received a random email for Howard medical cart. Anyone need medical carts? xd

I guess it was a really short list. It seemed longer in my head!
Now I must go pick up Kai.

I got the other side of my nose pierced the other day, which I’m sure you’ll notice as it’s a little swollen and obviously not healed yet. Love it. :d Can’t wait for it to heal so I can get new jewelry. The jewelry that was put in was a little small plus they aren’t bezel so the gem is just glued in. I don’t trust them so I’m going to get a couple of bezel set nosescrews at some point after it’s healed. And I dyed my hair today. Red, with a pink chunk and purple underneath. :d I love it.
