I’m a needy girlfriend. There, I said it. But I’m self-aware enough to know how to pick my battles. I’m all for BF having a boys night out (that lasts until 6am), as long as he agrees to coordinate our work vacation days, and also snuggle with me in front of Real Housewives of Whatever.
But recently, BF landed a job at a glam fashion house that flies him first class and throws insane parties (where Cee-Lo and Janelle Monae perform. Yep). Fab, but now his jet setting lifestyle has taken over, and I barely see him! Wah-wah. The upside? I have tons of me-time. Which I now embrace with relish.
I’ve gotten back into my single girl activities, like eating whipped cream from the can and treating wine like AdvilPM. I’ve also become obsessed with apply this terrifying-looking, goopy face mask. You know, some face masks make you feel like Liz Taylor in Cleopatra. Pampered and luxurious. Bliss’s Rubberizing Mask is…not that. It’s a grey cement paste that you mix up and apply with a spatula. It’s utilitarian. It’s ugly. It dries to a rubbery goo that you literally pull off your face.
When it’s done, it looks like your face is melting off. Like that dude in Indiana Jones. Check out the 3 stages below.
But the results? Glowy perfection! The picture on the left is after the mask. No makeup or even face lotion. Smooth, radiant, and not a pimple in sight. That’s me! DIY realness…until BF comes home.
