First, a plea for some help that a friend sent to me. Nadvirna Baby Orphanage is in Ivano-Frankivska, Ukraine, and is home to approximately 80 children from infants to age 4. Or it was home to those 80 children. The orphanage was completely destroyed by weeks and weeks of torrential rainfall and flooding. The children are now being cared for in the homes of the orphanage workers. Most of those workers live in one-room apartments and don’t have the necessities to take care of children like cribs, baby seats, toys or even enough food.
An Orphans Bright Star have set up an emergency fundraiser specifically for the babies of Nadvirna. You can go to this site and find the address to mail cheks or a form for Paypal donations. All donations are 100% tax deductible as An Orphans Bright Star is a 501(c)(3) corporation. I know Kelly will be around today, so if anyone has questions about this, you can just post them in comments for her to answer.
Now, moving from the serious to the very frivolous. Surgery went fine. I was going to post pictures, but my eyes were pretty swollen today, and with the stiches in there and one eye developing some black under it… I was thinking… nah. I think Tuesday will be soon enough to see what it looks like. I know it’s going to look great in a week or two, but you have to sort through a lot of swelling, redness and stitches to figure that out at this point. Lots of other people haven’t had as much swelling as I have, so I’m thinking I’ve been derelect in icing like I should have last night. I’m just not good at laying down and closing my eyes unless I’m ready to go to sleep, so icing my eyes for 15 minutes, then not for 15 minutes is a lot harder task than you would think!
Now, the lipo on the neck…. wow!!! Even with swelling, I now have a chin profile to die for. It is just gorgeous, goes straight back and down, very much more swan-like with no wattle rolling around. It’s pretty amazing to me to see the difference even just one day post-op. Even if I’m not blown away with any big difference in the eyes, it was completely worth it for the neck. This is the neck I used to have until my 20s, and I can’t believe it’s come back to me, yes!!!
So that’s the update, I hope to actually have some new perfume to review soon. I’ve got a much sought after, almost impossible to find thing that people have been asking me about forever that should show up this week. All I’ve heard in reference to it before is something like “Beautiful Skank Monster.” Yeah, that should keep your interest for a while. You can post your guesses on what it is in comments. If someone guesses right, I’ll send you a sample.
