Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

face woes

I am having a very woeful skin day. 

You have those? Where your skin takes on a mind of its own and doesn't cooperate or just looks dull. 

I have been having one since my wedding. 

During wedding prep I took on quite a beauty regime, I moisturized, mircodermed, washed and polished. I was probably spending 30 minutes a night, and lord knows how much money trying to achieve perfect skin. I was tanning too so that meant that I had that  sun kissed look I love and very little oil and pore issues to deal with. When I look at pictures of myself around my wedding I can't believe how smooth and even my face looks,  But after the I do's that regime began to dwindle and I haven't had skin like it since. 

I don't really have a ton of money in my budget to spend on the up keep so it fell to the wayside. 

My clogged pores came back, my raging red undertones too, and when I tried to re correct it by implementing my old routine I just couldn't get back in to it. I didn't want to spend hours a week washing, masking, serum-ing my face. So I just stopped wearing makeup, and with no make up came no washing. 

I figured if I didn't wear make up I did't have to wash my face, I mean I showered everyday wasn't the water run off from that enough. 

My skin went from ok to dull in a matter a months and has stayed there. I have tiny bumps from white and black heads, no major acne but scars from the few big ones I had and my black eye. 

I have always had this ugly blue vein under my left eye. It is so prominent that it, mixed with my inherit dark circles, meansI get asked on a regular basis if I have a black eye. Glasses help cover it for the most part so I stopped wearing my contacts too. 

I decided to start being proactive again about my face and last night I did a microderm and this morning did a regular wash and moisturized. Then I noticed it: 

Do you see those veins? 

I didn't have them last week, and I know this for a fact because although I don't wear make up I still have a smidge of narcissism and look at my face. The one side goes all the way up to the corner of my mouth, and I can say that before I realized it was a vein I actually got a damp paper towel and rubbed my face because I thought it was pen or something. 

I am really bummed about this new development. I am actually really self conscience about my eye vein because I used to get picked on for it a lot, enter thick rimmed glasses, but what do I do when its on the side of my face? 

It looks like my days of no make up are over.
