Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

The Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @caffeinated reviewer. It’s a chance to share what we’ve been doing over the past week and showcase books and things we have received.

Hearing aids, prescription lenses and pain therapy are making me feel old.

I went for an eye exam on Wednesday and I’m getting a new pair of prescription lenses! I am nearsighted. I can see up close but not far. On another note, I am officially qualified for hearing aids! Lol@me. It makes me feel old but, it’s better I get them now before something happens. I mean I know my right ear is a little less optimal and I am glad my insurance will cover it. I’m just so thrilled about it all *sarcasm

Actually, the test was super cool. Have you ever encountered a person that made you feel so warm and fuzzy inside just by listening to their voice? The overwhelming feeling that can make you fall asleep because of their soft-toned manner of speaking? That if they stopped talking you would be sad? Well, my ear doctor, who is female btw, is one of those people who does that to me. I could listen to her talk all my life. seriously. I love the way she makes me feel. It is magnetic and arresting. It completely and utterly entrances me when she speaks. I don’t know how it happens or what it is about, but MAN! It is a humble experience, that’s all.

Also, I had to order another pain therapy device from Dr. Ho’s because I was worried the one I had was going to stop working. I’ve been using it for hours in a day for my back pain. I would be lost without it because Tylenol 3’s for pain is not the best way to go. So I ordered another one and they sent the wrong one! O my gerd!

The makeup community is speaking out against Jaclyn Hill asking her to recall her lipstick product because of poor quality and hairy, mouldy gross lipsticks. People are really upset and can not believe what they paid for! There is A PETITION going around for Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics to RECALL all of her lipstick products. So far, she hasn’t; but it has forced Jaclyn to give everyone their money back if they are unsatisfied with it in any way. Well, good.

In book news, I can’t say that I’ve finished or started a book this week. Oh, I have opened several books but they just haven’t been able to draw my attention to want to keep reading. I don’t blame it entirely on the book. I have other things on my mind *shrugs. I tried reading My Plain Jane, Better Homes and Haunting by Molly Harper, and one that I really want to read is Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa. I did start this one but I decided I will wait for the audiobook.

51xezpv3vsl._sy445_P.S: Update: I forgot to tell you that I watched John Wick on Netflix. I am obsessed with Keanu Reeves. He should be very very afraid of people obsessing over him like that. I mean I decided to watch every *damn* movie he ever made. At least the ones I could watch for free. BUT, John Wick?! Oh, boy. He’s so cool. I highly recommend John Wick. Also, chapter 3 with Halle Berry, is highly rated and has even more action and dogs.

John Wick is a trained assassin who lost his wife to cancer and hasn’t been able to grieve properly. Because some Russian thug, played by Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), stole his car and kills his dog. This forces him to uncover his stash of weapons he has buried underneath his house. Nobody messes with John Wick and gets away with it. Ahh, he embarks on a killing adventure and puts his martial arts training and Tai Chi to the test. He’s incredible and it is the best action adventure thriller I’ve seen in a long time OR maybe it’s just me head over heels in love with Keanu. Just FYI. “we are the same age” *coughs

  1. Iโ€™ve had my reading glasses for about a month now, and Iโ€™m still a little self conscious about wearing them even though I only need them at home. Getting old sucks!

    Have a great reading week

      I’ve worn glasses since grade 6. I don’t have a problem with them so much but my eyes have gotten worse because of old age. Grow old gracefully? ya, right. mmhmm. Thanks for reading!

  2. “Have you ever encountered a person that made you feel so warm and fuzzy inside just by listening to their voice? The overwhelming feeling that can make you fall asleep because of their soft-toned manner of speaking? That if they stopped talking you would be sad?” OH GOSH, that feeling!!

    I feel like in ordinary circumstances, Jaclyn Hill gets a lot of bad stuff/unnecessary hate thrown her way that isn’t in her control. Like, with her collaborations with Morphe as an example. That wasn’t her company, so I always was like, uh, this is silly, relax. (Still frustrating, but that frustration should have been targeted solely at Morphe.) But with her own company–she should have spoken up, she should recall everything officially and she should stop lying to cover her own tracks. It’s so frustrating. And so gross! I’m with you–I’m glad she is offering refunds. I just hope the company sorts things out and gets a new lab or something. It makes me wonder who’s lab it was? That way I don’t buy any products from any brands that work with said lab, you know? I’m curious.

      Oh hey, Hi Jessica! I knew I wasn’t the only one who has experienced that kind of thing ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’m happy to hear you have heard about Jaclyn Hills lipstick debacle. I love her Vault eyeshadows btw but I won’t be buying anything from her anytime soon.

    Haha getting older is fun, right? Not. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m nearsighted too and all I can say is- thank goodness for contacts lol.

    LOL about Keanu. I saw a week or so ago that he’s going to be a character in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game, which is a video game, and here’s the clip since you’re a fan. Just skip to the very end, the rest is just set- up for his big appearance haha. Oh and warning for language. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh boy he’s so cool and looks good ๐Ÿ™‚ I could have him hang on my bedroom wall and not be mad at it at all ๐Ÿ˜›


  4. I can’t fault you on the Keanu Reeves obsession! He is yummy. You’ve had a super busy week… I wouldn’t worry about the hearing aids, you can get some really small ones now, and glasses can look awesome!

  6. Also on team near sighted. It’s annoying because I need my glasses for anything beyond a computer screen. So I am constantly taking mine on and off all day!

    I hope you get the correct pain therapy device soon!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. Ew that lipstick sounds gross!

      I know right? I liked How to run with a naked werewolf and I think glasses are a fashion statement. Thanks for reading!
