Beauty…Hollywood Style: Being sick in Los Angeles

November 17, 2009 at 5:00 am 1 comment

These last few days mark my very first time being sick in LA!  Pretty exciting stuff, no?  It’s been surprisingly difficult staying in and not enjoying the beautiful, sunny weather, considering the fact that I feel absolutely awful.  From what all of my LA friends have been telling me, something has been “going around” and apparently I’m one of the lucky people to catch it.  What’s also completely not cool about this sickness is that I have NO IDEA what is wrong with me.  My symptoms?  A persistent dry cough, achiness and loss of voice.  Maybe I’m dying!  (Hmm…and also coming down with a case of hypochondria.  Perhaps Hollywood really is rubbing off on me.)

Anyway, while I stay inside my Hollywood apartment, I’ve been entertaining myself by blogging, watching terrible reality TV shows that I’ve never watched before (examples: Tough Love and Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew) and getting plenty of sleep.  I actually slept for 13 hours last night, which is something I haven’t done since my senior year of college when I only had classes after 1PM.

Why am I ok with this?  I’ve been really making an effort to let my body heal itself, which, in the past is something that I would’ve had a difficult time doing while running around Manhattan in the rain and going from event to event.  Not this time, ladies!  As I’m writing this post, I’m watching another guilty pleasure, Bones (how hot is David Boreanaz?) and enjoying the sweet aroma of the new Godiva Milk Chocolate Truffle Candle.  There is nothing more soothing than the aroma of chocolate in the air.  It’s zero calories, zero guilt and 100% decadence, just like Godiva’s actual chocolates.  I’m sipping some fresh California orange juice and actually getting really pumped up for another 10 hours of beauty sleep, which is especially relaxing since I’ve been using my new Beautyzzz natural silk pillowcase.  Bet you didn’t know that silk has the same pH level as your skin, right?

Unlike your cotton pillowcase, the amino acids in silk proteins resemble those found in human skin, creating a virtually perfect pH balance that doesn’t deplete hydrating moisture.  Beautyzzz is designed to work with your skin and hair to make your nighttime beauty routine more effective and it just feels amazing on your skin.  If you don’t believe me, check with my cat, Angel, who is constantly trying to push my head off the pillow so that she can enjoy the luxury of silk on her fur.  Angel is going to have to take a back seat on the Beautyzzz train this week, since I need all the beauty sleep and recuperation that I can get.
