i told my Esthetician, " i normally do not curse but i almost feel like i am going to." ahahaha.. she said: "i know. i've noticed"... praise God she sees a difference in me!!! it's so much easier to lead people to Christ when they can first see the difference. if they don't, then there is absolutely no reason for them to ask me what's the difference in me.

i can officially attest to the fact that ripping ones hair out of the body is extremely fun and when received, it is EXTREMELY PAINFUL. Today i overcame excruciating pain: the pain of hair being ripped out of my legs. sad to say... i screamed! well more like yelled... alot!!!...

today was just one of those days... one of those bad days. i left my house at 8:00 am which would allow me to have an hour and a half to get to Demalogica in Carson. i knew i was going to get lost because i ALWAYS get lost but this was a special get lost day.
in short i ended up taking the wrong freeway and ended up driving for two hours. i was a half an hour late for Dermalogica. the day was boring ( not because of dermalogica- just because im not interested in doing facials for the rest of my life. im a make up girl! dermalogica's great.)and i became sick to my stomach after lunch because of my lunch(chili's). then i left an hour early because i just didnt want to be there anymore and i felt sick, and i got lost going home too. I ENDED UP IN COMPTON. who does that? ALLISON!

one thing i am not fond of is a trial. trials are poop, yet they produce character and hope etc... so i subconsciously like them- at least in the long run. two mornings ago i awoke to the Lord's promise he had spoken to my heart the night before: "and it shall come to pass, when the Lord has done for my lord according to all the good that He has spoken concerning you ... that this will be no grief to you, nor offense of heart to my lord."
as i girded up my loins and stepped out of my home for a bright cheery new day, i looked up and saw a great big rainbow. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS PROMISES!!!
for those of you who are out of the loop, caiden and i flew to france in order to spend some much needed quality time together. it was there we shopped, ate lots of yummy food including crapes, said hello to paris and shook the hand of love. i love our little vacations... though they are often made completely up in our minds.

so today i became the best esthetician in the world! hhah. i learned how to do a bikini wax and all day my teacher kept telling me: " nice pull" hurray for me! hurray for all the anagen i pulled out!
today was a day i have held my breath for, and for quite some time. for a month now i have been dreading this day because i so badly did not want hair ripped out of a very delicate area( wink wink) but to No avail. i had to man up,or more so woman up. can i just say women go through way more pain than men so we should really change that expression. anyway... after i had been given my bikini wax, we moved on to my arms. For some reason after about the 3rd pull my arm started to itch and sting and burn and i broke out in hives. it was awful. i am now happy to report that all of my symptoms have gone away and my arm is back to normal. however, half of my arm still has hair on it. haha! i would have taken a picture but i think i have grossed Nina out enough for a while what with the bloody nose, jelly fish, and waxing picts!

okay so valentines day came and went. sadly, i cleaned my room. and at one point during the weekend, im pretty sure i wanted to rip off my skin . haha! just kidding!..seriously though. oh to be a girl! and i would just like to clear things up... its a good kind of rip your skin off - if there is such a thing. anyway, monday i had yet another lovely day off from school. i had planned on spending it in carpenteria but to no avail- the rain had foiled my plans. because i could no longer spend my time where i wanted, i spent the day with a dear friend of mine in my neck of the woods .We had a tiny outing with my camera but something was missing.i think it was the fact that i used a girl instead of a boy for my photo-shoot. girls are way more self conscious( i include myself as well), but the pictures turned out pretty good anyway. what did you do for your valentines day?...

DID YOU KNOW?*acne prone skin holds onto 4 to 5 more dead skin cells than normal skin, causing the skin to become infected.
SPF: anything higher than spf 30 adds way more chemicals than anything below. the chemicals are not necessarily hazardous, though the more chemicals the more chance you have of having a bad reaction to the product. BE CAREFUL SENSITIVE SKIN!!! you should apply spf 30 every two hours unless you are perspiring in which case you should apply more frequently.
* there are two types of SPF( sun protection factor)
a.) chemical- goes deep down into skin creating a barrier
b.) physical- sun bounces off skin and reflects
* children under 6 months should not wears sun screen. older than 6 months yet still a baby? stick with SPF 15
* caffeine, when applied topically, detoxifies the body... interesting.

Did you know?..
ONCE you have chicken pox, it never leaves you. when your body finally gets over it, the chicken pox, reside dormant in your spine. If your chicken pox come back, they come back as Shingles. shingles is the active stage of chicken pox, and can be brought on by a traumatic experience/ accident or extreme stress. THE VIRUS STAYS WITH YOU TILL THE DAY YOU DIE... YIKES!
Tip for today!/ Did you know?
Botox help relieve migraines! Botox, upon injection, relaxes a muscle in your forehead called the corrugator ( located near the eye brow).

megan, the brave soul of the class... actually now that i think about it, every one else are the brave souls of the class. She took the easy way out by having the teacher rip her hair out, while the rest of us hold onto every breath we have, letting our fellow esties rip hair out of us!!!! OUCH!!!
