Highlighter Attempt #1

I am attempting to create Highlighters.
This is made with a set of pearlescent "interference" colours.
Very satin in Application.
This is the result of the First experiment.
I attempted to make a Satin Finish opal colour sheer highlighter.
Extremely small particulars and multi-colour Glow is almost impossible to photograph.
I warn you this is Picture HEAVY.
Out Door Light at 1900 hours (7:00pm) 

Indoor light

 If you look at the dust in the palette that's from the highlighter, it's soft, fluffy, pan stable, and you can see the colours of "shimmer" from the highlighter in the dust behind my finger.
Pressed in Pan

Purely Beautiful Carmine Dye (Not for the Vegan hearted)

1/2oz of Carmine Dye in Liquid Form (purchased from Tkb Trading) Just hit my door step seconds ago. I thought I would share this Beautiful color with you all.

Twos dots on the back of the hand, one Blended out, took what was left and dabbed it straight on my lips.

Here is the Proof::

Please ignore the state of my face, attempted to play with a color tattoo as a liner and it did not work out as planned  DX

My lovely Cat Miss Patches also wanted to look at the pretty color:

Uphill Battle

Dear little brother,

I know you cannot read this.

I want so badly today to contact you and give you words of hope and encouragement to the tiny part of you that might still be alive inside that shell of a body. To be completely honest, I cannot handle more pain. I am almost sure that if I message you I will either get no response or worse, you will start arguing with me that you have complete control over your addiction or... talking incoherently because of psychosis.

I wish I could tell you. I wish you were sober. I wish I could share this life with you with all of my heart. I miss you so incredibly much... it is more than I can bare.

Hello World


     It has been a long time. Eight months since my last confession ::cough:: I mean blog post.

Life has been Full. I wish very desperately to say it is full of just wonderful things. It is not.

     Not to say that wonderful things haven't happened. They have. However, the sad things have just been so overwhelming and powerful that have, in fact, become too much and they over power the good things. People say life never gives you more than you can handle. Sorry folks but yes, yes it does. That's why some people put a bullet in their head, why they need a therapist, why they are emotionally unstable. Doesn't mean you cannot learn to handle it. But it also doesn't mean that there isn't a point in life where enough is enough. Don't belittle life's complexity with quotes about how "the good lord doesn't give you more than you can handle", that's bullshit.

Pardon me if I seem vulgar. I am at a point where I have no filter right now.

     I have lost my brother. His addiction has destroyed him. It would be easier to deal with if he was dead. At least then the process of healing can begin. So in order to start that process, I have been advised to accept that he as a person has been dead for a long time.

My Health, food journals, and Other Brief Nonsense

     Well, today I hopped on my Blog (this thing you might just be reading right now) just to see how things are going, I haven't been on in about a month. Trying to limit the stress in my life, and in my free time I am on the hunt new employment. I am still currently employed, but in all reality it is a job that will take me no where in terms of literally anything, and to be honest, though I am thankful to have a job period, it does not pay enough. Student loan payments are KILLING ME, I scrape by each month by the skin on my teeth somehow. It's no way to live long term, and right now it's my 8 year plan. :/ Bummer.

     Anyway, once I hopped on I noticed that on my Fyrinnae post all of the pictures are missing :O
OH NO! Right? So I will have to dig around and see if I cannot find whatever folding they are hiding in on my harddrive and correct that. Not sure how they were deleted, but I think it has something to do with my Tablet. It seems to be connected to everything through my email and anything I delete on it seems to delete from EVERYTHING. That tiny tablet is awfully evil and powerful.

     In other small news, I need to update my blog sale. I have a bag full of small items that need homes. So I am hoping to update that this weekend (for anyone who is interested).

     Health. In order to cope with my list making stress, I literally just threw everything aside and put all the lists away. I have a couple of things I cannot ignore, for example, making the Wedding tree "guest book" painting for my friends wedding in September. I haven't started painting it yet, BUT I have done tons of research and I think I have a good idea how I am going to execute the creation. Though I am already sure that the size of canvas I bought on sale to make this on is too big in all reality, 3' x 3' doesn't seem that big... until you try to find wall space for it, and this it's freakin' huge. Besides this and a couple of other to-do items, I have put everything else aside. I cannot handle the amount of stress that people keep putting on me to do, so much so that I cannot even do the things I need to for myself.
     My dietary restrictions, for digestive related health reasons, have been the main focus of the past month. Basically, my health, my food choices/meal plans, grocery shopping, cooking, and exercise have become my past times. I am now keeping an extremely detailed Food Journal. After my last batch of Wheat contaminated fries at Wendy's (I assume someone dropped nuggets on them accidentally or something of that nature). I lost an entire weekend to pain. Pure unadulterated crippling pain. I had forgotten how bad it could be, honestly. It's been quite some time since I was accidentally "contaminated" . The last time, I was on a three day weekend visiting my parents, and had to force myself to vomit in a public restroom to avoid what the gluten would do once it reach my intestinal tract. Sounds ridiculous. I know. But it is a fact. Wheat/Gluten hurts me. It hurts me so much. Same with large amounts of Lactose. And my "New Found Enemy" Fructose.
     Fructose has been giving me problems for years, but I didn't recognize the issue exactly. When I ate tomato sauce on my Gluten Free spaghetti noodles I thought "it must be too acidic". When I ate an apple and became an instant intestinally inflated balloon, I would think "Don't eat apples on an empty stomach". Even though apples gave me a problem no matter when or what I ate them with. When I would eat onions and love the flavor but hate the bitter taste in my mouth I never thought it was my body's natural warning sign saying "You will NOT be able to digest this".
     Fructose Malabsorption is difficult. It's like Lactose Intolerance in that some people can handle small amounts of yogurt or cheeses, but not milk. Some people cannot handle any lactose at all and end up avoiding all milk products. It's the same with Fructose Malabsorption. Some people can handle it in certain amounts or small amounts while others cannot handle any (people who cannot handle any usually have a different issue called Fructose Intolerance which is genetic and rare). There is some information on the internet and more each day. A lot of information is actually out of date (like the information telling people with FM they cannot have coconuts) and it takes a lot of digging to find information that is accurate and useful. Since each case of FM can be different the best thing to do is keep a food journal. Start writing down EVERYTHING you eat, and write when, how much, how you felt before, and how you felt after. Honestly, it can be annoying, but it is THE best way to find out what food items you are reacting to. So that's been where most of my time has been going.

     It's has become so much of a Focus lately that I have been tempted to start gathering research I find and posting it here for myself and for easier access for others who might need it. For example I found an excellent studied done by a college on the types of Maple Syrup and the levels and ratio of fructose to Glucose that was extremely helpful. I needed to know if I could still use my Grade A Maple Syrup or if I needed to scratch it all together. Apparently Grade A Maple Syrup is one of the few that has less fructose than glucose, so I can still eat it with out pain! YAY!

     Granted that's why I keep a food journal, encase I react to something that previously did not react to, maybe I can figure out why, or decide to see a doctor because something isn't right. Or try something new and find it good or bad reaction wise. I think it is insanely important. For about five years, I used to keep food Journals, but then I slacked the past couple. Now I am doing it again with so much detail it's insane. It's also making me be more mindful of what I eat. It's making me notice how much sugar/sweets I actual consume, and work on changing that.

(If you suspect you might have this issue, here is some basic information on Fructose Malaborption)
