Tumor Update - Remission, Recovery, and Relapse.

Hello all. I wanted to make this post to apologize for my absence. But I had a very valid reason for poofing.

August 2016, I was at my family dentist for the first time in 2 years. And there it was discovered I had a very large tumor in my right side of my jaw bone.

September 2016, I started a YouCaring to help my family pay for the treatment expenses, as I needed to pay $3000 out of pocket for 5 root canals in my lower right molars.

November 2016, I underwent a biopsy. And had a chunk of my tumor removed, and it was sent to University of Torontos science section.

January 2017, I was put into Brampton Civic Hospital, where I underwent a 8 hour surgery to remove a 8 inch tumor in my right side jaw. Where it was discovered, it had eaten a hole straight through my jaw bone.

Pictured here, is the results of my CT scan done on my head. Where it shows where the tumor was growing and eating my jaw bone.

February, March, April 2017, I went back to my surgeons office monthly for check ups on how my incisions, and my bones were healing, and everything was going really well!

September 2017. I went to see my surgeon for the first time since April, this month. And he had finally gotten the results of my Biopsy back. And my tumor is NOT the type that I was originally diagnosed with.

I have a MUCH more aggressive tumor than originally thought. And the specialist as University of Toronto said I will need to have a "very aggressive" treatment, and very "invasive" and "major" surgery on my jaw.

ALSO. The worst part. My surgeon, who had removed 8 INCHES of tumor, just 9 months ago, did an xray of my jaw on a hunch. And from there it was obvious that my tumor has grown back FULLY in the last 3/4 months. And it's in a different part of my jaw. More along the hinge.

As I'm writing this, it is Sunday September 24th. And on Tuesday September 26th, I will be going in for 3 more root canals. And paying $300 out of pocket.

Im going to have a VERY tough road a head of me with regards to recovery, and remission.

I have some photos taken and ready to be posted, But please please have patience with me right now. While I'm undergoing major health issues.

I love you all so so much!!!

EDIT OCTOBER 4TH 2017: I have seen my new surgeon at sunnybrook. And he has told me, that for treatment, and to get rid of my tumor COMPLETELY. I will have to have my whole jaw bone removed, and have the un healthy bone cut off, and metal plates put in, and THEN a bone graph done to fill in any more gaps.

I may lose all of my bottom teeth, I'm going to be in the hospital for a while after the surgery. It's NOT day surgery. So I'll be stuck in a hospital bed.

I have a LONG road to recovery up ahead, y'all!!

Two Fall Looks - Hello Fall!

Hello friends!! Sorry I'v been MIA. September 4th was the second anniversary of my grandfathers death. And I decided to take time off of the internet.

But I am here, and I'm showing you all two fall inspired makeup looks I did this week!!!

Here in my part of Canada, it gets chilly pretty darn fast!! It's already at the warmest 16 Celsius here!! BRR!

Look one, Vampy lips -

For the eyes, I did Colourpop Bel Air (a light brown) as a transition, Coastal Scents Barista (medium brown) at the crease shade. And then patted Colourpop Glitterati (A white/gold duochrome) all over my mobile lids. Then took a small pencil brush and patted Coastal Scents Amber Bronze (Deep metallic bronze) on the outer corner of my lids, and slightly into my crease. I also ran Amber Bronze along the lower lashlines. Added some mascara to the upper and lower lashes, did my brows. And then added Huda Beauty Famous to my lips and was done!!

Second Look - Jewel Eyes

Sorry for the lash of close up photos, But these were all I had at the time!!

I did the exact same transition/crease routine here, then I took a small pencil brush and added Coastal Scents Chocolatier, and deepened my outer V. I then patted Colourpop Babykinz (sparkly metallic cranberry) all over my lids. I blended out any harsh lines, with a TOUCH more of Chocolatier. Then I buffed Colourpop Patchwork (deep navy glitter) under my lower lashline. Did my brows, added mascara, and then applied a coat of BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquid Lipstick in Chutney to my lips!

What do y'all think of my fall looks?

So Good I Repurchased - 5 Things I finished and Repurchased


Happy September, friends!!!

Today I'm going to show yall some things I finished, and then repurchased because I loved them so much!

while I didn't "finish" my first Modern Renaissance palette, I'v hit pan or fully finished 7 shadows. So I bought a new one, to use for when my first one is finished!!

L'oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation is wonderful! It's my longest lasting foundation in the summer heat I found. I use the smallest amount, and really spread and press this foundation into my skin, and my skin looks amazing! I used to have the shade 304, but it was way too pink. So I went up a shade to 305 which is perfect!

I used to own MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer in NW25, but it was too pink and dark, so once I finished that. I bought the shade NC20. which is lighter than my skintone. So It brightens my under eyes perfectly!

LUSH's Santa Baby lip tint is my holy grail, all time favourite lipstick! I'v only ever finished two lipsticks before. And this is one of them!

I'm on my third compact of the Annabelle Brow-To-Go!! It's my perfect shade match for my brows, and it lasts all day. What more could I ask for!?
