And the winner is…
So I had a doctors appointment today which went fairly well. My blood test results were in. It shows something is wrong with my spleen and that my red and white blood cell count is up. Everything else was normal which my doctor expected. But poop. I was hoping it would show something. She did say “don’t worry I know you aren’t crazy.” So that was comforting, kind of. Though, in the next breath she told me she wanted me to start therapy and see the therapist from mental health that works there. She wants me to start therapy for PTSD. Awesome. I also go back Friday for acupuncture, only it’s really going to be acupressure, she doesn’t think it would be wise to start on me with needles. I tend to agree there. My blood pressure is also still low. The nurse took my blood pressure 7 times, I thought it was less but apparently she noted it on my chart. haha But she had to take it 7 times before getting a reading of 90/70. She couldn’t find a pulse at all. The doctor couldn’t find one either and my temperature was 100.4? It was 100. something. Anyways. She took me off of the hydrochlorathiazide and said if my blood pressure stays low or is even normal to stop taking the lisinopril. No problems there. My bloodsugar has been staying fairly normal too so the Actos is finally working, she’s hoping that maybe I can stop taking the metformin and just use the Actos. I again am all for that. They did take 2 vials of blood to check for something with my spleen and to check something for my bloodsugar. I seriously can’t remember. Maybe it’s to check something with my brain.
After my doctors appointment I went to the mailbox place and mailed off Stephanie’s package, hooray! And mailed off Andrea’s belated birthday gift. Now I am really tired and I forgot to take my medications this morning so very sore. I really should go do that, but I’ve been sidetracked by shinies, and not of the cosmetic variety, okay I lie I’ve been sidetracked by that too. But I’ve been looking at rings from scott kay jewelry. I *love* pink sapphire, and I *love* this ring. Ohmygod. Seriously they have some pretty jewelry with pink sapphires.
I don’t know how many of you have friends or family in London, but please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. They’re on day three of riots and parts of London are engulfed in flame. I don’t know the details, I only just heard about this today, but please keep them in your thoughts. Here’s to hoping people stay safe.
I received samples of all of Concrete Minerals lovely loose shadows from Em recently to swatch! I’ll be swatching them by color groups so you can see them compared to each other. So here are the pinks and red. I’m going by the color descriptions on Em’s website. These were all swatched over Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Primer.
Mauve-pink with orange undertones.
Vibrant pink with gold sparkle.

Shocking, hot pink.

So one of my favorite little sea creatures is the Axolotl or Mexican Walking Fish. Look at how cute they are! They come in different colors but I love the little pink guys(what a shocker!). So the wonderful Marin from Linnaeus Cosmetics made1 me an aweomse Axolotl collection! It arrived in a cute little cloth fox bag with a tag tied around it with Marin’s company information. It’s pretty neutral for me, but I actually really like it. Puerile is a really pretty highlight color. I used all three for my FOTD today which I shall be posting shortly. I really like this collection. Marin did an awesome job as usual. Archetypal and Branchial both have subtle glitter in them which makes them super shiny and sparkley in the sun. They’re beautiful!
Marin was also nice enough to send me a second set of the collection which I’ll be putting up for a giveaway later today.
