Gratitude Challenge Week 18

Week 18 topic is Weather.

I am really grateful for Seattle’s Weather. The thing about this city is that there is barely 1 day of SNOW . I really can’t tolerate the cold and the snow. Even in this city, I barely go out during winter so imagine if I am in New York. I am grateful for a full 3-4 months of sunshine Β and a pleasant weather during summer. I am also grateful that though it rains Β a lot in Seattle, It is not bad, at least for me.

Due to Weather Changes

Have you noticed any changes in your skin or hair due to the weather changes? I have 😦 . It is always a problem for me. I have to change my whole routine due to the seasonal changes. I have started noticing how I am getting dry scalp for the past 3 weeks. I then decided to change my shampoo and realized that my hair is also getting dry and it feels like a hay 😦 . I had to use deep conditioner every time and even then it just looks ok.

And then my skin started feeling drier and feels stretchy by the end of the day. I just changed my skin cream about 2 months ago to the Boots Botanics so I was in a hunt for a new skin cream. I didn’t want to spend too much money on it since I don’t know if it will work on my skin. I wanted something light. So I went to Target where you can see a lot of brands to choose from. I spent about an hour in the skin cream section debating what to get. Finally I went with Olay beauty fluid. This used to be my favorite during 2005 πŸ˜€ so I decided to give this one a try. It’s a non-greasy and hydrating formula which should be perfect for Fall. It is also the right price for me to buy it.After using it for the first time, I realized why it was my favorite πŸ˜€ . My skin just absorbs it without giving it a greasy look and my skin feels good at the end of the day.

On the other note, my skin feels drier all over especially my feet. I keep applying cream and even oil but it feels drier and stretchy 😦 and I don’t know what to do. I keep trying different creams and lotions but nothing is working. @#@# this weather change. I hate what these changes do to my skin and hair.

Ramblings over, my readers πŸ˜€ . Hopefully I should be back to posting more reviews soon.

I am melting

GOD, Its hot in seattle. Its about 38 deg right now 😦 and I am wishing for an AC. Its been really awful for the past 4 days. The weather is so hot that I can’t sleep at night. The bed gets hot as well and so whichever side you lie down, you sweat within 15 min. So I end up getting up every 15 min so that I could change the side 😦 .

Its been more than 5 years since I am used to this kind of heat. I am literally melting and roasting inside 😦 . We only have a fan which is not good at all. At night it leave warm air which is bad. I don’t want to go out in the afternoon because within 2 min of outside, I sweat like a pig and end up with a wet tshirt.

I also have to tell you that I have tanned 😦 and it was just 3 days in the sun. I think i have gone 2 shades darker. I do use the sunscreen for both my face and body, but it doens’t seem to work. I usually stand in cold shower at least twice a day πŸ™‚ . It feels amazing in the afternoon. I really really wish for an AC. After having no deep sleep for the past 4 days, I am cranky and irritated all the time. And I HATE this heat. I would prefer if it rains here all the time rather than this awful heat.

Ok, grumbling over πŸ˜€ .
