Beauty sleep journal entry December 15 2018


It is Saturday afternoon. I did not sleep all that well last night. And I forgot to wash my face before I went to bed. That is a definite no-no when you are struggling to fight back against mother nature’s assault. You must keep up with your face cleansing regimen. But you know that. You never forget or consciously neglect to wash your face every night.

For having not slept very well last night I didn’t wake up looking too bad.

I’m thinking my skin renewal complex concoction is helping my face. My skin is looking smoother and tighter. But you know how these things go. No one thing ever works for an extended period of time. I was using Lancome Genifique youth activating complex prior to this. It definitely helped, but for the price I don’t know that I can call it a must have. I spent $105 for 1.69 Fluid ounces. Pricey for my budget.

But for sure, what you do to take care of your skin can go a long way to helping when you’re dealing with insomnia.

Sleep is important and will do wonders, but I’m finding out there are things I can do to help fight back against the impact that the lack of sleep has on my appearance. I don’t have to look like complete and totals S**t. That’s not to say I necessarily look fabulous. I’m definitely not looking my best these days and it’s interfering with my fledgling career as a singer. It’s tough. And I need to work harder at trying to battle these ridiculously obnoxious nasolabial folds. I’ve been trying a tapping technique that seems to help. I’ve tried micro-needling but who can stick with pressing needles into their face every night. It got tiring. I prefer the tapping and think that it works better than the micro-needling.

I hope that you are sleeping well and waking up looking the way you want to look. Until next time…

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
