Hello, hello friends! Apologies for my sudden absence this week, I had a test on Thursday that I really wanted to study hard for and didn’t plan my time earlier in the week very well. And then…just when my test was over (it went quite well, but only time will tell the real results!) and things were resuming as normal, I fell and sprained my elbow. #doh #SiobhanisaKOOKYKLUTZ
I still need to get it tested further this upcoming week, but so far, my family, the doctor I’ve seen and I think that it’s a grade 2 sprain which means that it should heal within about 2 weeks (and I get to wear a chic scarf around it to accelerate the healing process)! YAY! It has been torture, though, as it still hurts A LOT and I’m having to learn to do things that I take advantage of ordinarily differently, as to not distrupt or put too much weight or resistance on my elbow. Plus, to make things worse, this happened to the elbow on my right side, which, you guessed it, is my dominant arm. I just have to let nature and my body work its magic and let the healing begin (though it’s hard, apparently anything I do wrong like twisting in the wrong direction can upset the process…BOO).
The good news is, I’m refusing to let this stupid elbow of mine disrupt my life in any way, including writing posts as normal (I actually have a busy and exciting week planned for the bylaws! :)) or putting some makeup on my face. Heck no! If you’ve read my latest post about my current beauty wants, you’d know that I’ve been so excited to see Disney’s live action version of Cinderella, which hit theatres yesterday. She’s always been my favourite princess and it’s always been my favourite story of the “fairy tale classics,” so I’ve been literally counting down the days to when I could see it. Well, folks, that magical day was today (and SURPRISE! A full review of the movie will be up tomorrow! #switchingthingsup) and like any true Cinders fan, I was decked in powder blue and even did a special look to reflect my adoration of the ethereal princess. Last minute, it dawned on me that a special makeup look is really not so special if it’s not shared! 😉 So, here you have it, friends, a super quick but fun look for all of you fellow Cinderella fans (or themed makeup lovers)! 🙂
