A Weekend in May

A weekend in May, Fashion Over Reason springtime pink bouquet

Happy Monday everyone!

Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes, they really mean so much to me, you guys are amazing. In spite of May being the month of my birthday, which I am not too keen on, it happens to be one of my favorites for the same reason I revel in the month of September: that transitional weather that provokes excitement and creates butterflies in the pit of the stomach. The thought of the present moment being a transformative one that will lead to things that you imagine being greater than anything you've hoped, while being fully aware that you are also drowning in joy from everything happening in the immediate.

That is how this weekend could be described. It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday, the eve of my birthday, and I was in the best company possible -- my wonderful family and friends. Every single element contributed to a seriously perfect day. It was glorious.

Pretty Pretty pictures!

Hi Hélène! First of all, thank you for your comment! It was a great weekend! :)

Response to your Q: To be honest I did not know I was going to do it when we went in. I just wanted to get some information but then just decided then and there, why not? haha Something I was nerveous and had heard rumours about concerned nerve damage like- not being able to feel half your face, kind of thing. But as the expert told me, there is no risk of that when you get your helix pierced. After that I was good to go, more or less.

As for the pain. On me they used a gun and I've heard others say that they usually use a needle for the helix. Though, I have to say, I'm glad they used a gun cause I did not really feel any pain, it felt like a hard pinch more or less. Directly afterwards I felt a kind of burning//warm/stinging sensation but nothing unbearable.

Right now it feels like I have a bruise on the top half of my ear so I keep from sleeping on my left side, otherwise nothing bad to say about the experience. I'd say that a good thing is to check comments and ratings of the piercing place beforehand, I did just in case. Also I was fortunate enough to have my friend with me who has her helix pierced and the girl who did the piercing also had hers done so both could give me suggestions and advise of placement, does & don'ts etc. :)

Sorry for the really looong response, haha but hope I answered your question! And good luck if you decide to do it! :D

xx Sara

No problem Héléne, happy if I could be of some help! Can't wait til I get to change my piercing though, but 4 more weeks to go... Will go on a scheduled check up on Friday and see what they have say about it :)
