Nail Files. Week # 95

I wanted to pick a color that matched my new pink hair extension. It says that it's red, but it looks like a hot pink to me. I thought they kind of matched anyway. I have on Sally Hansen Diamond strength, no chip nail color~Ruby Ring. I'm having a hardtime reading it, but I think that is what it says

Breast cancer awareness

Today I got a pink hair extension for Breast cancer awareness. I got 1 last year too. I'm hoping to do it every year. I might get light pink next year.

Clear Change Cleanse

Today I met with my nutritionist & I will be starting a cleanse. Today was day 1. It will be a 10 day challenge. I looked through the menu/meal list & it's mostly fish, beans & veggies. I'm not big on fish or veggies. This isn't going to be easy, but I've been having stomach problems for a long time & no energy. So I am kind of excited. I have a few friends doing other cleanses & they have more energy & lost weight. So here's to feeling better & facing a little challenge.
