Nail Files. Week # 377

 This week I am wearing a few different nail colors. I saw a You tuber show some nail polishes that are available at Sephora. I already have similar colors, so I thought I would paint my nails with those polishes. The reddish is Orly Breathable-Beauty essential, light purple is Orly Breathable-Patience and Peace, seafoam green is Salon Perfect-Mer-made of Money & the periwinkle is China Glaze-Secret Per-wink-le. I think it's a cool color combo. I was going to use a different lavendar, but the polish seemed a bit thick, so I used this 1 instead.

My Mom's 2 year passing anniversary

My Mom passed away 2 years ago today. I still miss her & it's still hard. I kept busy today instead of sitting inside & being sad. I got out & went shopping & got a green tea latte. My Mom also loved shopping. So a good way to honor her. She mostly shopped on tv, QVC.

Friday Favorites. 4.2.21


 Happy Friday. This week was long. I think March was a long month. April is always hard now because my Mom passed away on April 9th. The 2 year anni of her passing is coming up in a week. But this is also coming up on my fave time of year. So I want to try to look at the positive.

1. Eye shadow palette. Blush crush by Colourpop. I saw Jessica Braun, beauty You tuber, mention this eye palette the other day. I ordered it & it came today. Not sure what I think of it yet. I love the color in the middle & I need more champagne colors. This is only my 2nd Colourpop palette & that 1 is hard to get a good color look. I have to use lighter colors from another palette with it.

2. Mug. Hello Gorgeous from Target. I got a mug back in December that I love from Target. It says Homebody. It's become my fave mug, so I knew I had to get this when I saw it on the Target app. I've had it saved in there for a while. I finally got it the other day.



 Happy Friday Everyone.

3.Vacuum the stairs.

4. Go for a walk.

Sunday night blues


Lately I've been pretty tired. More doctors appointments. I saw a neurologist & he gave me a headache shot. I need to pick up a rx for a shot to give myself. This Tuesday I have a dermatologist appointment. I've been wanting to see 1 since last year, but with all of my health issues & covid, I never made it in.I've also be down lately. I think it's because my Mom's 2 year anniversary of her passing is coming up on April 9th. So I've been thinking about her a lot.
