Weekly Poll

Weekly Poll: No. 3 Do You Shave Your Face?

New weekly poll! Do You Shave Your Face? Yes? No? Why or why not?

My answer
I do! I can’t stand body hair, it drives me bonkers and that includes my face. I can’t stand seeing the peach fuzz and I tend to get some random stray hairs that are blonde but clearly not peach fuzz. It keeps mah face smoooth. It exfoliates the skin!

Do you shave your face?

Thursday Guest Post

This is Halloween…Well, not quite yet with Dreadfully Divine

*Press Sample & Purchased*

Hello Lovelies!
I am back with another guest post here. I was thrilled when Luna asked me to do another post for her. However I will freely admit that I almost forgot all about it due to my wedding chaos.

NBC ghosts

But I did manage to survive the wedding without a body count so I can attempt to get back to my regularly schedule routine of makeup and blogging. However it is taking me a bit longer to recover from the wedding since I still have a ton of laundry and errands to do.

Weddings make people insane

However today I did my first full face Halloween look. I love Halloween and it is my favorite holiday however I have been slacking with looks due to wedding planning. So in order to makeup up for it I decided to do a full face sugar skull look today.

bbbsugarskull

I am especially proud of the shading of teeth.bbbsugarskullteeth

I used the following products for this look
BeautyBarBaby’s Cat Fight and Dark Haunting (from the Limited Edition Halloween Collection)

Wolfe FX White and Black

Ben Nye Clown White Face Paint ( I found it to be very thick and hard to apply possibly due to it being cold so I applied Wolfe’s White over it to make it more opaque)

Lit Cosmetic‘s Miss Monroe and Nirvana glitters (you can go vote for me tomorrow on Lit’s IG page for their #glitterfriday if you feel the urge ^_~)

Do you lovelies have any plans for Halloween? What are you planning to haunt the streets as?

NBC moon

Well lovelies I hope that you enjoyed this look! Until next time!

Fumiko & Apple Allergies

Let me give you some history. Both the kids and I suffer from allergies. We’re all on allergy medication. I don’t eat a lot of apples or pears. They both give me a stomach ache and are hard for me to eat. I don’t like soft fruit, I can’t stand the texture, so I eat my fruit on the hard side. Since I am missing so many teeth and have so many broken teeth, that’s really hard. A few weeks ago I picked up a couple of Asian Pears when we went grocery shopping, because I hadn’t purchased any in a long time and they smelled good. Along with those I picked up about 4 peaches. The kids scarfed up the peaches and left the pears. So I decided to slice one up to eat. I sat down with a knife and ate a couple of slices. I noticed my tongue and mouth started to hurt really bad, then my mouth and throat started to burn. When I looked in the mirror my tongue had some big raw spots on it and my mouth was swollen. Then I noticed my arm had a huge rash where I had carried the pear. I broke out in hives on my arm and some on my face.

From there I proceeded to look up symptoms online and found pear and apple allergies. Apparently they can be common for those with hayfever allergies because they all have birch pollen in common. Fumiko had been getting stomach aches and “sore throats” constantly for months. It dawned on me that it might be from all the apples she was eating. So I asked her if her throat hurt or if her mouth and throat burned. She told me her mouth and throat burned. So I asked if it did that all the time or if it was just when she ate. She said when she ate apples she got a sore throat and tummy ache. So no more apples. From what I read it was supposed to be raw pears and apples, however yesterday at school they gave Fumiko apple juice.

I got an email yesterday morning from the school principal telling me Fumiko developed a rash all over her face and forehead. They needed me to pick her up because they were afraid it was contagious. I had emailed them a couple of weeks prior when I first suspected the allergy and told them she wasn’t to have apples or pears. So we picked her up and the first thing I asked was what she had for breakfast. She had apple juice. *face palm* By the time we got home she had hives all over her face, her mouth and throat were burning and swollen and she just didn’t feel good. I started her on benadryl and put some cream on her face. She’s been taking benadryl regularly since yesterday. The swelling and burning in her mouth and throat went away yesterday, but she’s still got hives. They got fairly bad last night, are better today, but they’re still all over.

She wasn’t able to go to school because of the rash today. The school nurse and principal assured me it was in her record now. I was told that Fumiko needed to remember to not have apples at school… I know that they have buttons and whatnot for the kids at school with allergies. An apple allergy is no different than a nut allergy. -.- We have a doctors appointment on Friday. The school wants her to come back with an epi pen and see an allergist. Hopefully I can get an epi pen from the doctor, I don’t know what will happen about an allergist. I’ll see what the doctor says. The hives have cleared up a little bit throughout the day, so I don’t think an emergency trip is necessary, however I’m a little worried about her getting into apple again. The reaction escalated quickly. So from now on our apartment is apple and pear free. I’m going to try to get a bracelet or something when I can that lists it as an allergy. Apples are a no-go bro.

Review: Advil® Film-Coated Tablets

So this month I was sent some samples of Advil® Film-Coated Tablets from Crowdtap! This is my review!

Official description
Our latest innovation in relief stops pain before it gets worse. This Advil® is formulated with a unique Advil Ion Core™ Technology and an ultra thin shell to absorb quickly – in fact nothing is proven to work faster*

Use fast acting Advil® Film-Coated for headaches, muscle aches, toothaches, menstrual cramps, back pain, and aches and pains associated with the common cold. Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated leverages the rapid absorption properties of ibuprofen sodium, now available for the first time in the US.

Where to buy
From Amazon – 20 tablets for $4.97 USD with free shipping. 40 tablets for $3.69 USD with free shipping or 80 tablets for $1.99 + $4.99 shipping USD. 20 caplets for $4.79 USD with free shipping or 80 caplets for $5.49 USD with free shipping.

Directions

  • do not take more than directed
  • the smallest effective dose should be used
  • adults and children 12 years and over: take 1 tablet every 4 to 6 hours while symptoms persist
  • if pain or fever does not respond to 1 tablet, 2 tablets may be used
  • do not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours, unless directed by a doctor
  • children under 12 years: ask a doctor

Packaging
I received samples in foil packets. They are white with blue accents and lettering. They also have the Advil logo. It has product information on both sides.

Scent and formula
These have no scent and the taste is sweet, but there is no flavor. I received the tablets. They are round and flat. The coating is a peachy beige color and the inside is white. The Advil logo is printed on one side in black.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 200 mg (provided as ibuprofen sodium 256 mg) (NSAID)*. Inactive: acesulfame potassium, caramel color, carnauba wax, colloidal silicon dioxide, copovidone, ferric oxide, hypromellose, mannitol, medium-chain triglycerides, microcrystalline cellulose, natural and artificial flavor, pharmaceutical ink, polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, sucralose, titanium dioxide.

I received 8 sample packets and gave 4 away. I’ve taken Advil in the past; migraine, tablets, gel caps, etc. I used to pop Advil Migraine like it was candy. I eventually stopped taking over the counter pain relievers because my pain got so bad they just weren’t helpful anymore. I got on Gabapentin which helped with nerve pain. Over the years I’ve taken over the counter pain pills occasionally, mostly whatever store brand I happened to be at! I’ve taken these a couple of times. I find that they do kick in a little faster than what I normally take, and they do help. I have been getting more headaches and migraines again, while these don’t touch a migraine, they did help with a headache I had which is more than the ones I usually try do. I also took some on Sunday. We did pumpkins on Saturday, which resulted in me doing most of the work and by Saturday night my right shoulder was in a lot of pain. I figured I’d sleep it off, but Sunday it was still hurting, so I popped a couple of these and it took the edge off. I think next time I get some OTC pain relievers I’ll be getting a bottle of these. They seem to work faster and a litter better than what I am use to. I also noticed these to make me sick to my stomach, which is something I’m use to when I take OTC pain relievers. Some upset my stomach worse than others, but these don’t at all, which is a big plus. These are also fairly inexpensive. You can find these online at a lot of place and also in store.

Summary

Pros

Cons

Final thoughts
While I don't use OTC pain relievers a lot, I do use them from time to time. These work faster, relieve pain better and don't upset my stomach. They are inexpensive to boot!

Buy or not
I will definitely be buying these.
