@trishapaytas Shut Up Already

So you were friends with someone for a long time and they were talking shit about you behind your back for the duration of your friendship. If you had any sense in your head you would know that someone like Shane Dawson, who talks shit about everyone behind their backs, means that they are talking about YOU too. It is just a given.

Make one statement regarding how you feel about breaking up with a friend and let it freakin’ go already. You don’t see me making endless blog posts about somebody I thought was a friend turning on me, and I have an actual diagnosed mental illness that has left me too disabled to work a regular 9-5 job or a lot of the times makes everyday mundane tasks like cleaning a room feel like a Herculean effort, unlike you with your fake multiple personality crap. I take my meds, I talk to my therapist once a week, I try to at the very least to do all of the chores my parents ask me to do around the house while being a single mother to a nonverbal kid who has not been paid a lick of child support. I have to do unconventional things to make money for myself because even though I don’t have a “real job”, you are never ever going to catch me mooching or stealing off of any of my family members or anybody I consider a friend. Yes I would love if people donated to my blog all the time or that I could get bigger tips or that I could get more steady freelance work during this God-awful pandemic, but you don’t see me whining about it as much as you whine about Shane being two-faced.

I will always find my own way of making money first before I ever become dependent on a family member or a loved one to pay for all my expenses. Whatever money I get is in good faith and I’m not afraid to even donate a couple of bucks here and there. My life does not revolve around money, but clearly yours does.

If I can manage to shut up about the end of a friendship and move on, you can too.

Skin Care Series: Pale/Fair Skin

If you’re part Irish like I am, you already know that the most important thing one needs for pale skin care products that have the highest levels of SPF (sun block) you can get.

I may be a Jersey girl, but I gave up trying to tan naturally during the early years of high school. That is honestly so weird for me since I had no problem getting a tan when I was rather young. I went from easily getting a farmer tan to taking Dracula-like precautions when it came to staying out of direct sunlight.

One product I used in high school was Cover Girl’s tinted moisturizer. It was the first product with an SPF that did not make me break out. I have inherited my father’s sensitive skin, so any time I mention something does not make me break out, you really don’t have a choice but to believe me.

The version of CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer has been discontinued and is now sold as a “BB” cream (hover over picture to buy off of amazon.com). It unfortunately does not come in a big variety of colors, and wish it did.

When you do research to find what the best products for pale skin are, you are going to see a lot of Korean brands pop up. I believe it is because in Korea, when it comes to someone’s skin complexion, the fairer the better. I whole-heartily disagree there. If someone started a reputable skin care and makeup line specifically for darker completions (meaning foundation, powder and concealer), they would make a TON of money.

Here are some SPF products I found that have the best SPF while still being good for your skin (hover over the images to buy each item on amazon):
