Getting Packages and Over This Cold!!

Today marks two weeks of feeling symptoms of being sick. Exactly 2 weeks ago I got a stupid sore throat while at the mall with my Momma and silly me thought it was just because of the dry air but no, it was a warning. Today I tried to get me some antibiotics to help clear it up but they said I don’t have an infection so no antibiotics for me. Basically I just have to keep up with the Mucinex and my inhaler and I should be fine in a couple days.

On a brighter note, let me just say I looooove getting packages. I think that’s the main reason I order things online. Just to open up the boxes and envelopes. Once I open them whatever I ordered usually just lays around for a while until I work up the energy to put everything up. Right so today I got 3 packages. I was kind of surprised since I haven’t been tracking my orders so I was only expecting 1 but he gave me 3 🙂

In package number 1 was something I’m really excited to try out. You know how you could watch all these makeup videos on Youtube but you can’t really afford the products they use so it could all become depressing after a while. This time I found something I can buy! 🙂

It’s the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which is supposed to be a dupe for the expensive beauty blender from Sephora which I can’t afford. I’ve recently been trying to do more makeup wise for when I go out. I tried it for 2 days now but I don’t really like how it’s coming out yet so they’re no pictures. I still feel weird wearing powder on my face so I gotta find a look that I actually like. Maybe a different translucent powder because the one from Elf makes me look like a ghost. My birthday is coming up so I can probably get a good one from Sephora for my free gift. Here’s to hoping. Until then I’ll try to figure something out with what I have. 

In package number 2 was a repurchase of my leave in conditioner.

I’ve been using the It’s a 10 plus keratin for just over a year now and I still really love it. I’ve even gotten my whole family using it now. It’s great for when I just get my hair done over but I think I want to try a thicker one along with this because I find myself using a lot of it when I get more new growth and my hair needs doing over. I thought I ordered it but I want to try to one by Shea Moisture from their Jamaican Black Castor Oil line. I’ll have to pick it up from Walmart tomorrow if I ever get myself to leave the house. 

Inside of package number 3 was also a hair product, one that I’ve been meaning to buy for a while but I’ve been putting it off since it’s kind of expensive.

My hair really likes this oil and I can really tell it’s missed it while I’ve been trying the OGX oil. This one is thicker and leaves my hair feeling so much softer that any other oil I’ve tried. I want to try coconut oil since I’ve always been hearing good reviews on it and it is hell of a lot cheaper than this so I might try it out soon.

Keeping with hair product purchases I got a new deep conditioner since my supply has been seriously running low, only 3 left. Coming from my usual 5 or 6 having 3 was giving me a bit of anxiety so I got one the last time I was at Walmart.

This is the As I Am Hydration Elation Intensive Conditioner. I like their co-wash even though I don’t use it much anymore and I’m curious to see how this is going to work. I stopped using it because I just don’t co-wash my hair anymore. I already wash my hair once a week which for me is a lot and any more I feel like it’s just too much on my hair and scalp. I feel like either my hair texture is changing or it’s trying to tell me something so I’m trying to figure out what’s up with that. 

I finally got myself a jeans jacket and  pea coat that actually fits me yesterday so those were some good buys. (I’ll put in the pictures tomorrow when the light it better).

This week I’m really going to try to get back into a routine of being productive and exercising since I should be getting over this cold soon. I was going to go to the gym at Pace but I’m starting to rethink that since its an hour and a half away but I might still go. I don’t think I’m going to do the ballet classes just yet. I want to make sure I’m at a certain level of fitness before I commit to paying for a class. That and I have to find all my stuff and order ballet shoes so it looks like the gym or at home pilates is it for me. 

Anyways I’m rambling. I have to go clean up the explosion of sweaters in my room and get ready for the FIVE HOURS OF TV i have ahead of me. It’s not exactly 5 hours, just 5 shows I wanna watch. 

If you want you can follow my mini blog aka my twitter to get all my random thoughts @Dancer_21 and get the random pictures I take on my instagram @CarlaCJ21.

Until next time 🙂
