I have been terrible with my sleeping. I’ve been getting up everyday around 5pm – 7pm. I don’t think it is the jetlag as much as my unwillingness to change it. I just stopped giving a damn. This limits my choices of things to do. I have been spending it at home doing not much else.

Today I woke up around 5:30pm. I forced myself awake, since I could have very well just laid back down to sleep until 7pm. I was groggy and looking at websites when I came across an old blogger that I used to read. She was RAVING about a detox drink that she has first thing in the morning and before she sleeps that she found on recipe zaar. There are tons of raves on the site about this as well. So, I think: What the hell! It’s basically hot water, honey, and lemon. Needless to say that I tried it. I went jogging afterwards and came home to take a shower. Before I hit the shower, there was another mask that she was raving about. So, needless to say I tried it. I was on this honey kick. It was a mask of 1 Tbsp of honey, 1/4 Tbsp of olive oil, 1/2 Tbsp of sugar. Leave it on for 5 minutes and scrub it off in the shower.

While in the shower, I decide to use some of the Body Shop passion fruit sugar scrub. Let me just say here that the version I have does not look that purple inside. I bought this over a year ago, tried it once, and hated the smell. The smell was so strong and the moisturizer was so thick, it scented all my towels and my sheets. I couldn’t stand it. I thought I would scrub down and wash it off with Aveeno, thus off setting the scent and some of its properties.

I got out of the shower and put some green tea oil on my face (which I do quite often). After 10 minutes, my neck started getting itchy. My forehead was splotchy. I was sure it was the honey mask. However, a patch on my thigh was itchy too. WTF? And this area on my neck under/behind my ears – which wasn’t touched with anything.

UHG. WTF? I didn’t consume anything out of the ordinary. Just that drink and brown rice, onions, chicken, and eggs.
