Hello, my name is Elena and I am a MAKEUP addict. Though I might only wear it half the week. And some days I have only enough time for BASIC make up. I just love it. And kinda have a collection of sorts going.
One of my favorite things involving makeup is eye shadow. So every Christmas I hope and pray that someone will get me the newest Sephora face case. It is basically like a collection of popular poppy colorful eyeshadows. Often containing lipstick and lip glosses as well. I love these things!
As such, I also collect BRUSHES. I feel like I can never have too many. I prefer nicer ones.
Anyway. To reign my self in here. I do have a point I swear! 😙😗😁
In my collection of brushes, there are (of coarse) ones I have not used. Some specific types. Some repeats. One SPECIFIC TYPE was a "concealer brush". It was from a SEPHORA BRUSH SET I had been given.
Never used this brush. I have never been good about using concealer. I usually just do foundation and use Micabella Foundation Powder as a concealer. Applied by other brushes. Foundation I think.
But alas, I am running low. And I do own like 5 different concealers. So yesterday I was like WTF LET'S TRY THIS! And I used the concealer brush and one of my concealers.
Oh. My. Gosh.
Where has this been all my life? 😀💜🖒
It's fantastic. What a difference! So ya. I think that if you have never tried one, you should. If you don't own one, and don't want to spend much, I am sure ELF has one. They have everything else! And are a top fave of makeup users who budget buy. TRY IT OUT. 💋
Use? I did mostly under eyes and red marks/acne. Fabulous.

So a short blog to update my situation.
I had a friend that needed help with cleaning houses. I do that at home anyway so I offered my services. Well, aside from occasional dog sitting and my attempt at selling Mary Kay I have been out of the working world for quite some time. But I have to say it has been nice working. And since it is a friend, she can work around my disabilities and understands me. Plus, I don't drive. She picks me up and we carpool to the locations. It just works! And I feel better about myself knowing I am helping and also just getting out in the world not always being stuck at the house. It was my hubbys idea honestly and it was a good one. I am sure God had his hand in this. Because it fits so well. I feel blessed.

I think, well hope, it is our "destiny" to start life on new worlds as well. Whether they be close by or far off. I think it is a good idea.
Well, it is as long as those new places are built with the long-term goal of a utopia. Not the mess we have on earth. Though I do hope one day we will fix a lot of the issues we have on earth.
Let's discuss that. After all, great expansive civilizations start on the home world. Right?
What do I think earth needs to work on to remedy our many current problems? Well, one that is obvious is to go as green as possible. We don't need to take a abusive and polluting mindset to other worlds. That way is honestly selfish and that mindset is just not healthy for developing a utopia. It contradicts. I think when we really see a drive, collectively, to heal our world and go green then it will be a hint that we are moving in the right direction to an overall better society.
Next I think we need a one world government. I know, the bible (maybe others) warn about that day. But I am not refering to one that kills Christians or persecutes groups of beliefs or opinions. I mean one large harmonious, green, tolerant, peaceful, non-violent goverment. One that has a better life and advancement and evolution of our species in mind. I think it would be on the list of things we need to accomplish before we venture outwards. We need to perfect our own society, then start looking to build new.
The next one goes along with that last one I guess. We need to abolish violence. This begins by people excepting people who are different and focusing on each other as all living breathing intelligent beings who can all work better hand in hand towards a common goal.
Another would be technology. Science and technology. We need to really put less focus and money and effort on wars. Instead, why not use all the time, energy, and resources to bettering our understanding of the world(s) around us. Plus, to venture into the dark abyss and mystery of space, we really should put money and time into advancing our technology. And not just new TV's and hoverboards. But, things that will take us towards our goals and dreams. Big stuff. Research and create better space traveling vehicles. Maybe try to solve the mysteries of worm holes or warp speed.
Now, why should we explore space and create new civilizations on other planets? Well, one good reason is, if a meteor hits the earth and kills off everyone we will go extinct. Completely erased from existence. If we spread out and create thriving societies in New worlds we stand a better chance of being around still a million years in the future. It just makes sense.
But I am sure other people have other really good reasons. One might be to learn about the universe, or to travel to new places, or to seek out life in the universe. Maybe we do it just to continue to advance. There are many more reasons and ideas I am sure.
Just something to think about. A goal. Something we could become if we all move into the right direction. Our decisions need to reflect that goal. Every one of them. Think about what you do in life, does it help?

It is a good recipe of you want to try it. I have since changed things up and it has resulted in this recipe.

So as I sit here at the Dr office waiting on my cortisol injections to my many keloid scars I thought I might do a quick blog about them.
Keloids are an overreaction your body has when healing an injury. An over production of collagen I believe. Mine personally come from body acne. So I am on meds to prevent acne so it lessens my chance of getting new ones. But they can come from various things.
Anyone, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. Anyone can get them. However, Dr said it's MORE common in blacks.
The injections Dr's give are to flatten them and lighten them. Lessening the itching is a bonus. HOWEVER IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW THAT THESE INJECTIONS HURT SUPER BAD! Your injecting a hard mass. That hurts more than most pains I have ever felt.
They can numb them first though. With a topical cream. I am about to test how helpful the numbing treatment will be. Fingers crossed it helps a good bit!!!!
Some Dr will have other methods to help also. I would suggest you inquire to these before scheduling your appt to get injected.
They can not cut them out. Because your body will produce a larger one. Its your body not healing certain areas correctly.
You get them various places but commonly they are on back and chest. I have heard ears, arms, face and stomach too.
That is all for now. I will update at bottom after I get mine done.

This post will likely be short. I just had a thought on my brain and I figured why not share it on my blog. I haven't been blogging as much recently. I guess for a while now. But I had a thought that seemed important. I feel it is important.
I am lucky.
There are many versions of that sentence, many definitions, many details, many ways that statement is true. But the one I'm specifically talking about, the one that came to my brain and is flooding it with emotions currently is my future.
I am lucky that my bad past has not badly affected my future. I am lucky that I get to be happy despite all of the really stupid decisions that I made. I am lucky to be loved so much by my husband despite the fact that he was good in his past and I was wild. I feel blessed to be loved by someone like him. Sometimes, you kind of feel like you don't deserve it. But I do everything I can everyday to feel more like I deserve His love. Spoil him rotten.
I just feel so lucky that all of my bad decisions, years wasted making bad decisions, have not darkened my future. Or my present. Lucky to have this life lucky to have his love. Lucky to be forgiven by Jesus for all my sins. Lucky to have a family like I have. Not only the one I've always had but the 1 I gained through my husband. When it gets down to it... I have a pretty good life now.:-)
Thank you god.

As with anything ...take caution. Anything we do has the potential to somehow become harmful to us. So always be aware of that fact.
