So I there’s been some radio silence on the blog lately. And I was doing so well for awhile there. I just haven’t been feeling well. I haven’t been up to photographing stuff or doing much in the way of swatches or reviews. The kids are back in school and we’ve been having many appointments at NARA. So it’s been a little busy. We got rid of our old couch. Hopefully soon I’ll find a used leather one to replace it with. Mochi got fixed last Wednesday. She’s been a clingy, meowing mess since. xd She’s meowing constantly. She follows me around with “meow, meow, meow, meow”. Everywhere. Today we went to NARA for family therapy and we were gone about 3 hours. When I got home Mochi was waiting right at the door for me and immediately started meowing and rubbing on me. I took a short Instagram video:

You can’t hear her, but she would meow and I would meow back at her. Also. Dun, dun dun. We are getting a new kitten. The kiddos therapist and I have talked off and on about emotional therapy with a companion pet for them. They’ve really missed Zero. So she gave me a companion pet letter for them. She doesn’t usually do that. People usually just want a letter to avoid paying a deposit. She thinks the kids would do really well with animal therapy.

So anyways. Britton from Haus of Gloi found a mama cat with 3 adorable kittens outside their business location. She posted about them in the HoG facebook group. Immediately I fell in love with the gray kitten. See picture below:

All the kittens

This is his mama:
Mama cat

Isn’t she beautiful? I believe Britton is keeping mama and maybe the orange dude. She named the orange one Tucker. :d We have named the gray kitten Poet. Well the kids named him. He has beautiful green eyes like his mama. Look how cute he is!

Poet

Poet is coming home Friday. We are super excited. He’s so sweet. I met him and Britton and Matt and Jen from HoG last Friday. Super nice peoples. The kittens were adorable and so entertaining. xd Loved them.

Also So. Funny story. Some of you have heard already. xd The other day Fumiko was badgering me to trim her bangs. I hate trimming her bangs because we have no hair scissors, it takes forever to make them straight. So I being the brilliant person I am, decided to trim her bangs with the clippers. All was well until she jerked and I shaved off half of her eyebrow. So then I shaved off half the other eyebrow to make them even…. then the next morning Fumiko took my brow trimmers and completely shaved off her brows. Now she says she’s going to keep shaving them off because she doesn’t want brows because I don’t have any… her quote “If you don’t have browns then I don’t have brows!”. Lord. So then I told her I couldn’t grow eyebrows and I actually want nice brows and that apparently makes no difference to her. She is against brows now. We’ll see how long this lasts…

She looks like a cute little alien. xd Will she grow them back or keep removing them? Too bad I can’t steal hers. t.t We also started decorating for halloween at the beginning of September. >.> So excite. We also did crockpot stew, mango cider and pumpkin cookies for Mabon and also did some smudging/prayers at NARA. It was pretty wonderful. I hope everyone else had a blessed Mabon.

Hi all!

MaroonedOnAnIsland here, for the not-exactly-Thursday Guest Post!

I originally wanted this post to focus on eyebrows. I recently found this wonderful way to use powder on your eyebrows, especially if you get oily or live in a humid area.

Instead, I will be writing a review of Haus of Gloi, for very good reason.

They have cured my KP!!

For those who don’t know, KP stands for Keratosis Pillaris, a condition of the skin that causes tiny, angry red dots, that looks like a rash. This typically presents on the back of your arms or on your upper legs. I personally have had this since about the age of 12 or 13, showing up on both my arms and upper legs.

And I have tried everything. Believe me – lotion with AHAs, AHAs on their own, BHAs, or pretty much any kind of actives, fancy lotion, cheap lotion, lotion with fun botanicals (like borage!), and many other things.

I was pretty much set in the idea that my KP wouldn’t go away. So when I purchased the Haus of Gloi lotion in Aether (their name for their unscented products), it didn’t even occur to me that this would do anything for me! Needless to say, I am very happy with this product. SO happy, in fact, that I would go as far as saying that I will probably never buy a different lotion again.

I didn’t even notice at first. When you have a skin condition for so long, you almost forget about it to the point that you don’t even look at it anymore. So it surprised me when my mother pointed out that my arms weren’t all angry anymore!

The rash is gone, the bumps are 95% gone, and it is no longer red! I AM SERIOUSLY RAVING!! This is awesome!!!

Now if only it could do something with the acne I keep getting… (Isn’t that supposed to be only for teens?!)

On another note, I also bought the hair oil from Haus of Gloi, in the Litchi Milk Tea scent. ANOTHER RAVE HERE!! I have low porosity, 2C/3A curly hair, and this stuff is amazing! Smell is great, and my hair is so soft! It hasn’t looked this pretty in a long time.

Needless to say, Haus of Gloi has my wallet. I will be repurchasing the hair oil and the lotion, many, many times.

Haus of Gloi, you done good.
