It has officially been 13 days since I had my operation, and there has been significant change. For example, the swelling has reduced so much (not fully) to the extent that I have figured out that there are actually not one, but TWO chains in my mouth. My gums were so swollen before that my lips were covering it, which I'm guessing is the reason I couldn't see/feel it. OUCH.
I can also talk properly now. Well, I say properly, but I have a minor lishp (emphasis on the added 'H'). I am hoping that this lessens the more I get used to talking. Although, the lisp may return when I get braces on as that is fairly common. If that is the case, then hopefully I will just re-learn to talk normally. All being well, I will be getting braces on in 9 days!!!! FINALLY.
Today I decided to be a mensch (excuse the Yiddish) and go back to school. It was a rather eventful morning. After being off for two weeks, I decided it would be sensible to wake up at 7:00am in order to give myself an hour and a half to get ready. The standard time in a girls morning routine came, to wash my face and moisturise. However, this was not the relaxing experience I remembered. Whenever I went to touch my face (specifically my outer cheek) to rub in my cleanser/moisturiser, there was an awful pain that felt like pressing on a bruise. You guessed it, I was pressing on a bruise. The bruise that was located on a surgical site. DOUBLE OUCH. I just became stressed and frustrated with myself. The fact that I couldn't complete the simple task of getting ready made me feel weak. This quickly escalated to lots and lots of tears and screaming. What I like to call, a ''bitch fit''

It was hard facing the fact that I could only apply my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (as it had a doe-foot applicator), rather than completing my full foundation routine with my amazing, yet vigorous Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Unfortunately, the Clinique Anti-Blemish Foundation is not made to be applied with hands as it just dries way too quickly (which I found out the hard way this morning).

- Today I recieved the scrunchies that I ordered on eBay. Scrunchies are great. They are stylish due to the cute velvet patterns (I got a black one and a purple one) as well as efficient, a bobble that doesn't leave kinks in the hair. Amazing. Will most likely order more colours.
- Tried out a new mascara today. If interested, await a review that will be done at the end of this week.
