The private beach at the back of our hotel. Bliss.
During the past couple of weeks I've fallen victim to the worst allergic reaction I've ever experienced in my life (I mentioned it on Twitter a couple of days ago), combined with a nasty bout of eczema on my hands and elbows. I suspect it was the Alpha H SPF50 which caused this latest outburst, even though I've used it before with no incident. I dunno ...is being allergic to SPF quite common?
I'm sick of the way my skin has been acting for the past few months and will be seeking a referral to a specialist from my doctor next week. In the meantime, I'd like to get tested for allergies and find out exactly what I should be cutting out of my diet and I'm busy researching clinics at the moment.
My skin at its worst. See? I wasn't exaggerating!!
The worst of the peeling/flakiness has now healed but I'm still left with some scarring and obvious dryness. Not impressed. At all.
Whilst I was away, I managed to miss my bloggiversary - again! Vex in the City is two years old! Whoo! I'll be posting a H.U.G.E giveaway soon, but more importantly I aim to regain control over the direction I want my blog to travel in.
I always wonder if readers notice I have London on one side, and New York on the other of my blog header!
Reading through old blog posts has given me inspiration and the break I've had has done me the world of good. I was beginning to feel quite disillusioned and overwhelmed by blogging and was ready to hit the delete button. I've now recharged my batteries, have fresh ideas and I'm ready to go!
Thank you for the support so many of you have shown my blog, it's always a pleasure to log onto my dashboard and find new comments to my posts, both old and new. The past year has been a lot of fun. In the meantime, pray for my face please!
