So over the weekend I had what could have been a potential set back with my helix piercing – it wasn’t responding well to the 20 gauge jewelry we used at all and was trying to heal by swelling around and over it. This is something that does occur regularly in some individuals, and given my metal sensitivities and the sheer fact that my physiology should probably be studied by science its not necessarily unexpected.
I went into my lovely and beautiful piercer, April, to have her assess and provide a plan of action. We decided to install a larger gauge labret bar with a flat back to allow room for swelling and assist my cartilage with draining properly. There was almost instantaneous relief and results and two days later I’m already seeing a significant decrease in swelling, redness, and an increase in drainage and a return to what my natural ear looks like.
Wanted to get some immediate thoughts about the process of putting in a larger gauge bar out there for others in case you’re in a similar situation!
I posted a new vlog for your viewing pleasure!
Last night I discussed how my piercings are healing and what they are doing. So far so good, though they of course are throwing me for a loop here and there. I also touched on one of my newer obsessions, which is planner organization! I have ALWAYS had a think for stickers – for those of us that grew up in the 80’s collecting stickers was an actual thing and I have to say, I still love it. This just makes it adult acceptable on a whole new level and when you add it to the fact that I happen to be a sort of connoisseur of office supplies….well, even better!
I do NOT recommend purchasing printable planners sets though unless you have AMPLE amount of time and patience to cut the damn things out yourself. I spent a good near part of 2 hours cutting out the two sets I purchased. Wont be doing that again. Far more patient to wait for them to come to me pre-printed and cut in the mail I think.
But without further ado…
Reposting from my other blog – Professional Goth (for all things gothy, professional goth, and finding my way in a professional world!)
Did a quick little video last night that got finalized today for everyone to see! Got to review some products that I have wanted to try out (and still search for the ever elusive and highly recommended Tarte Shape Tape Concealer!) as well as some thoughts on things I’m trying to accomplish and get organized. So much going on in my head to get out. Thank you for following along and please remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get updates on new videos and view new content!
