Our Lips are Sealed

 I hate to say it, but I gave in to having augmentation done to my body. 

I had been contemplating breast implants for a while, have friends that have had them done, and even dependent on how much money you want to spend, (about $12,000 plus if you want the real natural feeling ones) augmenting anything is not a sure thing, and even with breast implants, you still have to go back in 10 years or so to have them replaced and redone. 

No, I didn't have breast implants, and now, I never want to. 

I have been doing little things here and there such as getting Myers cocktails, vitamin infusions, Microdermabrasion to refresh the skin, and have even had an invasive procedure done called Votiva where now I don't "pee myself a little" when I run. 

Nice and tight and cozy. 

Okay, TMI, but still... 

Anyway, I can see why women (and sometimes men) become addicted to these types of procedures because once you get started, you want to try something new and different because you are curious about what it would be like. 

It looks good on him and or her, so it has to look good on me. 

Or at least that was my thinking anyway. 

Ever hear of that saying, "if you can't change your life, change your hair color"?

Well, it's a lot like that. 

Unless you are trying to cover a lot of greys, you don't necessarily need a different color, you just want something... different. 

What procedure did I have done?

I had lip enhancement called Volbella. 

It's the sister lip enhancement to Juvaderm. 

I will be honest, immediately after having it done I felt instant regret. 

My natural lips were beautiful already and I am not sure why I felt the need to enhance them.

Sure, wearing lipstick would be cool.

Looking as if I am walking around just waiting to give someone a blowjob is kinda nice if you're into that sort of thing. 

Looking overly sexy. 

Not giving random blow jobs. 

Get your head out of the gutter. 

So now basically that my lips are bigger, I feel like my nose needs to be smaller. 

I also notice that my fine lines around my eyes are more pronounced, and the only youthful look that I am sporting right now the moment, are the myriad of pimples that have suddenly appeared on my face. 

You can say that I have knowingly and willingly inserted myself into a type of dilemma.

The good thing is that it is reversible, and I can call as soon as tomorrow and schedule an appointment to have the enzyme hyaluronidase inserted to essentially melt the filler away restoring my lips back to their natural state. 

Or... I can wait it out two weeks and see if Ashley, the lip enhancer expert, is correct in her assumption that they will look gorgeous and I will wonder how I ever lived without them. 

Ashley, the same woman that I had to see on two separate occasions because she hadn't made my lips even remotely symmetric and they are a bit lopsided if you will. 

Yeah, I don't know. 

It's a choice that I am glad I have options to make. 

What I do know is that I should have saved the money and put it toward flight lessons, or my upcoming trip to Florida, or dental work, or anything, rather than mess around with mother nature just to have a nice set of plump, juicy, lopsided lips.

  1. Just tilt your head the opposite direction and they'll be even.

  2. I think I just one of those pumps that can add volume when it starts to get low or off kilter. Or, I could tilt my head to one side. That might work too! Ha!

The boyfriend dilemma

 Why is it that when we imagine our perfect partner that when we finally meet them, it turns out that we are not the perfect partner for them - at all.  When do we know that delicate balance when it comes to matters of the heart and attracting the relationship that we desire?  I met my friend Moses almost a decade ago on one of those cheesy dating apps that was cool hip and fun at the time, but later discovered it was really just another way for men to get laid.  Moses is 5 years older than I am, fit and athletic, and likes to do the things that I like to do as far as physical activities. He is also incredibly sexy and very attractive. The downside about Moses is that he is seemingly a tortured soul, just like I am.  A free spirited black sheep that vies for attention because like most of us emotionally unavailable adults, was neglected as a child.   But that is the one thing that I love the most about him... Moses is wild spirit that can't be tamed.  Just. Like. Me.  Moses and I s

"I Lost My Chin In 2019" - Drew Barrymore

Jowl: noun plural noun: jowls The lower part of a person's (or animal's) cheek, especially when it is fleshy or drooping. I am going to talk a little bit about age. Yeah, I know. Not fun. Especially if you are in your early, mid, or late 40's. You may not even like this topic in your 30's because you know eventually... it's coming. When I was a kid, I noticed that each of my aunts had them. The old lunch lady had them, and my grandma had them. At the time, I didn't really consider much of it and thought that maybe it was because they were all angry Irish women or that maybe there was something in the water of our super small rural town that was also causing families to have an over abundance of children. When I started to notice a little bit of face drag as of recent, I thought that maybe it was because I am always on my cell phone looking down or typing away important papers for school (again -looking down) or maybe along with "global warming&

Life of Pi

It has been said that without failure, there is no growth. I can say that with all honesty there is some merit to that claim and there are moments from the past few months of my life that are completely unexplained; falling directly under the category of personal failure and growth. I have given the past three years of my life, the past three years of my time, money, energy, love, dedication, emotional support, failing health, and whatever else, to be thrown into a forced position to fit a mold that I tried desperately to escape since Jr. High and High School. Popularity. Unfortunately the career path that I had worked so diligently to pursue since 2011 had me as a "perpetually moving target swayed by the winds of polar politics" (Stowe 2019). In that, the power and influence were not judged by good work ethic and genuine action put forth to create improved results, but by "how well I played in the sand box with others" (Ellis 2019).
