Where does 'milkteef' come from?
It's a bit of a long story! A few years back, an old friend told me I should be 'too small to have braces' when I had them, and that I ought to still have my milk teeth. He's an Essex boy so you'll understand why the spelling is different. Apparently 'teef' means bitch, in Dutch, which I obviously didn't know about. Also my site has nothing to do with My Milk Toof, as I'd never heard of it!
What's your name?
Emma! A lot of people do refer to me as 'milkteef' though, which is fine. I just hate it when they use a capital M!
How old are you?
I'm currently 24 years old, and my birthday is November 30th.
How tall are you? How much do you weigh? What size are you?
I'm 5'3", I have no idea what I weigh anymore (it gets unhealthy to obsess over a number on the scales I think) and I'm a UK size 8/10.
What's your skincare routine?
I always make sure I take off my make-up before I go to bed, if I can. I cleanse, tone and moisturise twice daily, but I chop and change products and like to try new things out when my current picks run out! My skin is on the drier side of normal, perhaps combination.
Do you wear coloured contacts?
I've never worn contacts in my life! I've always wanted brown eyes, though, so I'd love to try them one day.
What's your make-up routine?
I really don't have a specific routine, it can change weekly! My modus operandi is usually a light, dewy base, pale lids with a feline flick and then any lip colour I'm feeling on the day.
Why did you get a nose job?
Basically, over time, the bump on my nose got more pronounced and stuck out, which was stretching my skin out and causing some of my (awful) headaches. If I touched the skin around it, it would stay red for ages, I couldn't wear sunglasses without being in pain, and so on.
How much did it cost?
I didn't pay for it as it was done on the NHS for medical reasons. I'd probably never have disliked the bump so much if it didn't cause me pain, so it was kind of a double whammy for me.
Why did you have to have it done twice?
The first time it didn't go right, I don't know why- I just think the surgeons didn't know exactly how it would go, so they didn't shave too much off (sounds gross I know!). Thankfully it went perfectly the second time round.
Did it hurt?
Not really, I woke up both times with a sore throat (from the oxygen pipe drying it out) and like I had a cold where I was stuffy. The second time I didn't have packing up my nose, which hurt so much when taken out after my first operation! The thing I hated most, though, was the anaesthetic needle in the vein in my hand, that was left in right up until I was allowed to go home both times. They're so thin and long that they feel like they're going to snap under your skin- not good!
