Hello– Welcome to Triple Shot of Beauty. This is my FIRST POST. EVER. Here’s what I was up to this week:
- Hourglass Vanish Foundation: I got really lucky here and am super grateful to Influenster and Hourglass for sending me the Vanish foundation stick and brush to review for you guys. Check the instagram @tripleshotofbeauty for sneak peeks!
- Essie Gel Setter polish+topcoat: Nail polish usually only makes it one, maybe two days without major chippage on me. I am pretty rough on my hands. Testing this out to see if it can make it through a few shifts on the TCU
- Benefit Gimme Brow vs Essence Make Me Brow: One is almost $25, and the other is almost $3. Word on the street is that they are dupes. Keep checking for a full report!
I started my third year of medical school on May 31st and my first three months of rotations are all Internal Medicine. My first month was inpatient, hospital IM and now I am on my second month. This month I did my first 3 weeks on a Transitional Care Unit. A TCU is a step-down unit for patients who are coming out of the hospital but require some more rehabilitation and management before they are ready to either go home or into a skilled nursing facility.
Tomorrow, I will still round in the mornings to check in on patients in the TCU (we get there at 5:45am!) but then I will follow my attending to his outpatient office where he practices Internal Medicine in a primary care setting. I’m looking forward to being in the clinic for the first time!
This was a busy week! I was on call on Saturday but found some time this week to watch a little Orange is the New Black (just finished episode 4- no spoilers please!) and finished the season finale of Outlander (my unabashed, un-guilty pleasure). Last weekend we drove out to Ithaca to see Swiss Army Man which turned out to be an absolutely and unexpectedly beautiful film.
Poor Jonas was sick this week, but is doing much better now. It turns out that kitties (like humans) can get Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The poor guy was vomiting up blood which gave us quite the scare. After a vet trip and some medication, he is doing a lot better! However, he definitely does not love the wrestling required to get the meds in his mouth…and I could do without it too. Does anyone have any good tips for getting medication into cats? We may have to do steroids every so often with him in response to flare-ups.
I am very new to to blogging, and to wordpress in general, so if you find anything that doesn’t work on the site please let me know.
Also, what would you like to see? Any products you are dying to have reviewed? Looks of the day? Empties? Favorites? More medicine talk? I’d love to know– leave me your thoughts in the comments!
