Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

clean and clear

My face was feeling a bit extra oily today and so I decided to use some of my facial astringent. You know the stuff, you dump it on a cotton ball and rub it all over your face to leave it feeling "tingly" and clean. So I rummage for a cotton ball and pull my bottle out of the medicine cabinet. As I opened the bottle something in the back of my mind registered that something was not quite right, like it smelled a little off....but I kept moving forward, because as a mother of 3 small ones I only get very short snipits of time to myself and if I didn't hurry little hands would soon be pounding at the bathroom door. So onto the cotton ball and onto my face the product goes.....and then when the "tingle" turned into a BURN I realized what was wrong. I never realized it before but the finger nail polish remove is the same color as my clean and clear.

Memo to self, buy the blue colored facial cleaner next time.

Wowzers! I bet that felt real good! Funny it would hurt on your face but it doesn't bother your fingers.... different kinds of skin I guess.

I remember one time putting something stinging somewhere, or something, I'll probably remember it later. But seriously, buy the blue. =)
