face wash

Here's something I haven't written about before: skin care.

Over the years I have tried many, many different kinds of face wash.  Nothing seemed to work.  My face would either turn oily and break out even more or get so dried out it felt like sandpaper.  At one point I used a face wash that would bleach whatever towel I used afterwards to dry off my face... if your face wash can bleach a towel, what do you think it's doing to your skin?

And then, not long ago, I magically came across a gentle, organic cleanser pinned by a curly hairstylist in St. Louis.

Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser

This is the BEST face wash I have ever used.  No joke.  It gently cleanses my skin without drying it out.  I don't break out anymore.  My skin is soft, smooth, and I don't feel like I have to cover it up with makeup to make it look nice.  The cleanser has a nice apple smell to it... until you wash it off, then it gets a little funny.  After I wash my face, my fiance affectionately calls me "stinky face".  :)

happiness!

Hello, world!

It's been quite a while since I've written on my blog.  I've been rather busy.  Busy doing what, you ask?  Oh, just spending time with the most wonderful man in the world.  :)

We met online early this year.  I had been registered on the website for less than a week when he contacted me for the first time while I was at an OAFC weekend.  We sent novels of e-mails back and forth before meeting a month later.  As they say, the rest is history.  There have been many, many trips to visit each other on the weekends, and during one such trip about a month ago, he asked me to marry him.  I said "yes".  :)

We are so thankful to have each other, to get to be together, and we are excitedly looking forward to starting our life together.  I honestly cannot think of anyone else I would rather spend the rest of my life with.  :)

So that's what I've been busy with.  I think it's a pretty good reason for not writing on here since February.  :)  I am planning on writing here more regularly though.  I'm sure there will be posts about wedding planning, crocheting, food, maybe poetry (I haven't written any in quite a while), and more gushing about my fantastic husband-to-be.  :)

Until next time,

Laura :)
