Life Lately – Distressed Skin and Babies???

.Good morning babes! Today’s post is gonna be short and sweet. I really just wanted to check in and do a “life lately” kind of post to let you guys in on a few things that have been going on in my life recently 🙂 I see a lot of bloggers do this and I actually really enjoy it because you get a more personal look at the life behind the blog!

Crazy Weather

First off, it’s the beginning of March and the weather in Portland is still ridiculous. I have a really hard time functioning in life lately when it’s wet and cold (not sure why I still live in the PNW lol). So it’s been really hard for me to feel motivated in this dreary weather. To give you an idea of what Portland weather is like, yesterday we had high winds, rain, snow, and bright, sunny blue skies all in one day!

Distressed Skin

With the weird weather and all the beauty products I’ve been testing out, my skin has been on strike. It’s been super dry around my nose, mouth, and chin, but then oily on my cheeks and forehead. Sooo…I’ve decided to give my skin 2 weeks off from all beauty products! This has been super hard for me cause it means I’m not cleansing, not exfoliating, not moisturizing, nothing! I’m trying to take my skin back to neutral and then start over from there after I can get an idea of what it is needing naturally.

Baby Fever?

Last but not least, the hardest thing to talk about. The hubs and I have been toying with the idea lately of having a baby. We’re kind of in that “if it happens, it happens” mode, you know? I have to admit, every time “that time” of the month comes around and Mother Nature rears her ugly head, I can’t help but be disappointed! Remember when you were in high school and the health teacher scared you with “don’t have sex, you’ll get pregnant?” Well, it turns out it’s not as easy as have sex=get pregnant lol. I am definitely one of those people who believes everything in life happens (or doesn’t happen) for a reason and there’s nothing you can do to force it if the universe isn’t ready to give it. Even so, I can’t help but fret over it a bit (and when I say fret, I mean obsess lol).

Anywho, I don’t want to bore you guys with my rambling and complaining. I hope this post wasn’t too hard to swallow and that you all have an amazing day today!! What’s happening in your life lately? Let me know in the comments below!

    Thank you for sharing your life lately. I reallly enjoy reading this. You see, I have been worry recently since I haven’t get my period yet and I might be pregnant again. I am worry because I didn’t plan for it (maybe because I feel i am too old now for 2nd child). But will leave it to God. Reading your post make me realise instead of being worry, I should just relax and welcome the blessing if it’s happen. I pray for you too. thank you for a wonderful post.

    I think giving your skin a rest is a good idea. You may find you don’t need much of anything especially if your makeup is made of natural products. Whether you go back to all the beauty products or not you are beautiful.

    As for the baby, your “twosome” is for such a short time, enjoy everyday until you become a threesome!

      Thank you for reminding me to enjoy this time with the hubby! I am definitely going to try to remind myself to not take this time with him for granted, as it will definitely change when a baby comes!

    Thank you for sharing such a personal blog! One day I hope that I feel comfortable sharing my stories and personal experiences as well. But in the mean time, thats for pointing out and being honest about real girl struggles! xx

      Thanks for the encouragement, love! It’s definitely hard to share personal stories on the internet! I think the most nerve racking part is never knowing what kind of reaction you’re going to get from readers, as well as friends and family. I would never want to post something that makes those close to me feel uncomfortable, so knowing where to draw the line is so important and is definitely a learning process! xoxo

    I’m in Wisconsin and the weather has been equally weird. You are right–it’s so hard on skin! I’m really looking forward to warmer weather. As far as babies go–as you said, when the time is right, it’ll happen. Sending you hugs, well wishes, and hopes for better weather!
