Kiara Sky Nail Polish Rocks!

In celebration of feeling a bit better, this gal had a Organic Spa Pedicure. I actually almost fell asleep during the hot stone massage! It was so good!

Since I was wearing several shade of pink I went for Kiara Sky bright pink nail polish shade. Sadly, I can't share with you the shade since I had a nail salon pedicure. But if your nail salon happens to carry this line definitely give them a try. Their nail polish colors are great for Spring and Summer.

Thursday Thoughts ~ April 16, 2015

We named our cats 'Bonkers' and 'D.C.' Not original but it worked for us and the cats!

I love The Real! I even schedule my mani-peds around the show. It makes a great conversation starter!

Won't people ever learn. You can't cheat the system and get away with it!

For those of us, who are old enough to remember AOL screen names this will be a nice Thursday Throwback! For this gal, it's always been 'berrymorin'!

Rockin' A Pixie: Makeup And Styling Tips

I asked the HuffPost Live Style Team for some makeup and styling tips, for pixie hair cuts and wigs.

Here's what I learned:

Enhance your eyes, blush, lips but not all at once. You can spring for the bold lip, smoky eye and blush.

Your face has more attention since hair isn't hiding it. So make sure you keep those eyebrows maintained!

Consider purchasing stylish hairbands and barrettes to change up your hair style. They're inexpensive but give you lots of options.

Those statement necklaces and earrings will be more noticeable too. I like to shop at Etsy and Ross Dress for Less for jewelry.

And don't forget that turtlenecks will look great too now that your hair is shorter. Right now, they're on sale!

Chronic Illness Update

One of my fellow chronic illness sufferers suggested that we should call ourselves, "Professional Patients". We're busy just dealing with, managing our various illnesses, researching, being our own health advocates.

For me, it's been 15 long years. The last 4 years, I no longer work so I can focus on my health.

This reminds me that I have an appointment on Friday! "Have an awesome weekend"!
