Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all. 


Entries in Acne (11)


Pre-teen beauty

I was browsing products online and came across a slew of the things that I used as an American pre-teens, deseparate to get rid of my acne and get my hair and makeup to look a bit like the main character in (what I thought was the super-cool movie) Teenage Witch and a bit like Nikki Taylor. I was never going to look like either, but in my aspirational quest I used a slew of products that are still available right now, this very minute. Crack open those Stridex pads or that bottle of Loves Baby Soft. Just the slightest whiff will thrust you back into those awkward, self-conscious years as if you never left.

Buy back a slice of your childhood (unfortunately, I'm not sure if they're available to buy if you're not in the US. Also, we can't help changes in formula and branding, which is such a shame!): Stridex pads, Sea Breeze astringent, Clearasil Vanishing Cream, Jean Nate, Loves Baby Soft, Lip Smackers, Cuticura Anti-bacterial soap, Nexxus shampoo and conditioner, Buf-Puf, Wet 'n' Wild cosmetics
