Now what did I buy?
What it is:
A revolutionary perfecting eyeshadow that dramatically minimizes the signs of aging.
What it does:
Unlike typical eyeshadows that can accentuate fine lines and crepiness, this advanced formulation of 48 minerals (a silk peptide-soy lipid complex that helps to moisturize and firm eyelids) and Halo's patented hydration system improves the texture and overall appearance of lids while imparting beautiful, soft color. The innovative packaging allows you to twist the top and shave off the perfect amount of base and crease shadow every time.
-In 10 minutes, eyelids appear 60% smoother and firmer
-In 4 weeks, eyelids appear 98% less crepey.
But that's not the only thing that will be in the box. Since I am a fan of Sephora on Facebook, they let there fans in on a little treat. Spend $25 and you get this tote bag(TOTE09 is the code and I have no idea how long it will last):
I'll have a full product review with pics once everything gets here.
On the recovery front, I'm seeing more movement in my face on the left. It's a slow recovery, but I'm grateful I am recovering.

Someone else hopped the rewrite bandwagon for Jane Austin Novels, and now there is a charming book called Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. At first I found this book really hard to read, but I had a lot of crap going on (car issues, shingles in my ear, Lucia's wedding, and Bell's Palsy). As I got to about the midway point I couldn't put this book down. Sometimes I found I had to read over a sentence or two due to the fact that it is a Jane Austin novel, but I still really enjoyed reading it.
I'm really starting to find that book rewrites of classics are quite amusing and I want more. But I will say this, when my cousin suggested that I read Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, I thought he was kidding. In fact I sent him a text message that said, "Holy crap! Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is a real book. I thought you were kidding."

I have had some small improvements. Chewing is easier, and that is good when I eat. I made a cheek muscle move, and can still make it move. And last but not least, I made the corner of my mouth move a smidgen when I was trying to smile.
This recovery, I'm sure, is slower than grass growing, but even the smallest things are huge.

But check out this cute Christmas ornament mom gave me....a little early, but it totally reminds me of someone who is short and furry!

Ok, so I am 14 into having Bell's Palsy and I'm more than ready for this to be over. 3 to 6 weeks until I am better is too long. I do my goofy face exercises every hour like I am supposed to. But I'm just ready to be able to smile again. Oh and wear my contacts again. Right now I can't wear them because my left eye doesn't close all the way.
Sorry I haven't posted anything lately. It's hard to be inspired when you feel kind of crappy.

I'm not real comfortable putting these pictures up, but someone else may be going through this.
So yesterday was Lucia's wedding and she was lovely and the whole thing was lovely. I didn't take pictures, because I was too busy doing the maid of honor thing. But I came up with a creative way to decorate with my hair pin from the wedding.
And my bouquet from the wedding is now sitting in a vase in my room. So bright and cheery!
