Topic: Health & wellbeing / Lift Esteem

I’ve just popped in for a little sook as I’m having a really bad time with my depression at the moment. Today I was trying to drag myself around to do some shopping, but had to come home because I thought I was going to burst into tears or collapse or something. Every year I go through this I lose more of my determination and hope for the future.

I hope you other ladies are punching on and that your week is of to a better start than mine. Hugs to you all.

Oh cat lover that’s not good at all. Sending you big hugs. Take care of yourself xxx

Awww! Thank you Rose! Your hugs and the cute kittie and lamb are gratefully accepted. I hope your pain has settled down a little and that you’re feeling better than you were a few days ago xox
I’m getting there, slowly. Unfortunately I haven’t got a lot of faith in the medical system up here in Australia’s top end. Hubby took me back to the doctor on Friday night, because I just felt so bad. The lady doctor we saw was lovely, but she hardly spoke English. We couldn’t really understand her, and I don’t think she really understood us either. In the end, I asked for some maxalon (for the awful nausea) and some Nexium (for the awful heartburn feeling that went with it) and went on my way.

Hang in there cat lover. There is light at the end of the long dark tunnel, and it will shine again for you. I’ve been there.

I suggest ignoring trends. Work out what suits you, looks good and makes you feel good.
Then you’ll have style and be above trends.

Topic: Anything but beauty / Leggings Problems for Big Booty Girls

I have discovered Lysse leggings. They are not cheap, around the hundred mark but they are genius.
Some are ponte, some are cotton and some are shaped like pants. They are shapewear infused leggings. They last, they are thick and wash well. The tight ones are so supportive and help when my circulation is poor. They gove me a waist and best of all they seem to lift my rear and make my lumpy bits look like lady lumps.
Danniro they are also available form Amazon. Here in Oz the easiest way to pick them up is from TVSN.

Topic: Industry watch / How to Stay Ahead of the Trend

It’s a 20yr loop I read in an article.

Hehe, I thought I’d be too young to experience this loop, but I went shopping today and saw denim overalls/dungarees everywhere and had a flashback to my childhood years. My mum dressed me in them all the time :)

Topic: Industry watch / How to Stay Ahead of the Trend

I’d suggest that if you have Instagram to follow all the high profile fashion brands and fashion bloggers, because they’re going to be the ones selling/demonstrating all the latest trends.

Every time you check your feed you should be able to suss out what’s going to be trendy, because all of them will be wearing elements of the trend in their fashion posts.

I personally don’t believe in spending a lot on ‘trendy’ clothes because trends come and go. Maybe if you have the income, and if you work in a fashion orientated industry then you may need to wear more expensive/high end clothes – but if you’re just a normal girl who likes fashion, then there’s not much point spending a huge amount, because it may not be fashionable for more than a season. It’d be better to spend more money on items that will never go out of fashion.

As for needing to shop online to get the trendiest clothes…I’m not sure. I do a mix of brick and mortar shopping and online, and I have to admit online shopping wins out slightly because there’s so much variety to choose from, and it’s often a little cheaper too. But you do run the risk of fitting issues, which can turn out costly to tailor/return.

Topic: Talkback / BH Trial Team

I am sad to not be part of this. However, maybe I can allay some fears.
I was part of the Wella Illumina trial in December last year and I can confirm the quality of their stylists and the wonderful results they produced.
Enjoy it was a wonderful experience and so was meeting the other beauties.

Topic: Make-up / L'Oreal Skin Perfection Trial Team

Hi Zaralis,
I do have a bit of issue with the pilling as well and I’m 99% sure it’s because of the Instant Blur product. At uni, I often wear the BB cream alone and I’ve even worn it to work without an issue.
I normally give it about a minute or two to sink in and then carry on.
To minimise the pilling effect I just use the absolute bare minimum to cover my T-zone area which is almost nothing at all and instead of rubbing, I try to pat it in, including the BB cream.
This often helps.
Hopefully it helps you out!

I found patting it in reduces the balling up too Rei_ but it’s way too time consuming for me, I’ve been trying to make it work for my ‘fast’ routine but that always leads to me needing to wash it off and start over, then I’m in such a rush that I use my usual stuff because I know I can make it work in 15 minutes or less haha.

I’ve only managed to wear these products out on one day and even then I noticed in the car mirror that I had little balls of product on my face.. Not good.

What order do you put the products?
serum, moisturiser, blurring cream where I need it and then bb cream.

Hugs Catlover. I’ve been there too. I’m glad you came here and shared with us where you were at.
I am very proud of you for getting to the shops, recognising it was too much and making it home safely.
I can’t buy you milk, I can’t give you a physical cuddle but I can care about you and I do, nor am I alone. They are lots of us here, hearing you, empathising with you. We can’t lift the practical burden but I hope you can feel the support for your emotional one.
Just be kind to you, do the best you can and know we are here.
Cyber hugs.

I’m sorry for what happened to you today cat lover.
I don’t have anything brilliant to say, just take a deep breath……and then breathe….and it’s okay if you can’t get to the shops today…it doesn’t matter.

You go to the shops when you can. Makes no difference when you go.

It’s easy for me to say, but take it easy and just take it one day at a time.

And, thank you for posting here so that we can all get together like this and ‘speak’ and take care of each other like we should.

Hugs to you. Take care cat lover ♡♡

Thank you CherryBlossom. I know there are so many people who are worse off than me, but just occasionally it would be nice to have one person in the world to buy me a litre of milk or give me a cuddle when I’m feeling this way. I’m glad you BH girls are here to keep me company xox
Oh boy cat lover, I am sooooooo giving you a cuddle right now!!!!!!!
And I so wish we were neighbours and I’d run out and get some milk for you too….anytime!!!!

Yes the BH members are lovely and caring, which is wonderful.

I don’t think you are having a “sook”, Cat Lover, but I am glad that you have popped in to talk about what you are feeling. Well, I’d prefer it if you weren’t going through this hell, but just know that I am thinking of you. I tend to get like this also around seasonal changes. Nothing seems worse than normal, it’s more like I can’t seem to cope well with daily tasks.
Obviously, you’ve been through this cycle before, and if anything, please take comfort that you will come out the other side of this. Please be kind to yourself, and take care xx

Thanks so much Indi. I know that you can relate to the way that daily tasks can become a massive struggle when depression or anxiety hits, so I really appreciate your thoughts and support. I hope things are going ok for you at the moment sweet one xox
