The Onesie Life:
I’ve been hiding something from you for months: I can’t wear clothes like normal people. I have some sort of weird rash that only ‘grows’ where clothes put pressure on me; hence my adorable pajamas, hoodies, and onesies in all my videos… I go to another dermatologist tomorrow at 4:30, and I am super nervous. The last time I went was two years ago, but he took a skin biopsy that left me with a quarter sized scar on my hip. (Now I have so much scarring you can’t really see it anymore…)
It got really bad over the summer, but nothing could have prepared me for this fall. It grew up my stomach, over my breasts, up my shoulders, down my arms… It got to the point that I literally couldn’t leave the house because I couldn’t wear
normal any clothes. I can only go out in an oversized sweatshirt and basically sweatpants. No bra, nothing tight. Hot, right? I’ve been super depressed because it sucks, and it hurts too. Nothing helped make it go away- nothing even helped the itch. I tried EVERYTHING I could think of to make it go away. (Read: I’ve basically been drunk for 4 months so I don’t itch myself to death.)
I just got health insurance again so went to the doctor two weeks ago. She had NO idea what it was, so gave me the same steroid cream the last dermatologist gave me (which I’ve already gone through 2 tubes of), some anti-fungals if I wanted to try them out, and Prednisone. Prednisone is not a drug to fuck around with, so I haven’t taken it yet and will only take it if the derm tomorrow tells me to. It’s a immune system suppressant, and I get sick easily as it is.
The good news is that the steroid cream has 70% wiped it out! (I haven’t applied it to one quadrant of my body so that I can show my Derm tomorrow.) No more bleeding, itchy scabs covering most of my body! Yay! And there was much rejoicing. (leave me a comment if you get that reference!)
The long and short of it is that the last few months have been incredibly depressing. I couldn’t leave the house, I couldn’t wear normal clothes, I couldn’t film, I couldn’t work out, I couldn’t go out to bars or gyms or anything to meet new people in my new town. It’s been VERY lonely. Anyways.

The $5 Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette Review:
In case you wanted some more details on that Profusion palette- The eyeshadows are a bit chalky if you use them alone, but with a brush and a base they’re pretty good. I like Wet N Wild ones more, these actually remind me of the Maybeline ones. I am in love with the golden shade, and rose gold shade, and the matte dusty rose. They show up really well if you use a white base too.
The eyeliner in there was not my cup of tea at all. It goes on very smoothly, but never stops running and smudging! I do like that there is a spot in there to hold an eyeliner/brush.
