Flares and Weather

Posted by navyhawkins on April 17, 2019 in Uncategorized |

I have been managing my fibro pretty well since diagnosis last year.

However, this winter has been brutal. I have had 2 bad flares, one which forced me to take 3 days off work (plus I got glutened which made it worse).


This past week, again a flare. I feel like the tinman so stiff and sore and I was researching things to do to stop it.


Upon my research, I found that the extreme temperature changes and put you in flare. this is so true here in NL.  Two days ago, it was sunny and 9, yesterday, snow and cold, today snow and cold and this weekend nice and warm. My body can’t adjust to the extreme weather changes at all.

So, I’ll just suffer through or move to a desert 🙂

Posted by navyhawkins on April 15, 2019 in Uncategorized |

I did it. I cancelled Ipsy. I enjoyed some of the products I got, however for $20 CAD, I found the value not there. 5 samples. And, when I discovered an item I liked, I could not find it Sephora.  I would be able to find it online but, the exchange rate and the shipping […]

Ipsy – March

Posted by navyhawkins on April 1, 2019 in Make up Monday |

Ipsy is an American Subscription Bag that will cost you around $20 CAD a month.  It comes with a themed bag and 4-5 premium samples. What I like about it is that you get to see great new products from brands that you may not be aware of. However, It can be hard to find […]

Luxebox Unboxing
