Y’all, I have been struggling. If you have been reading my posts for at least a month, then you probably know that I decided to quit having my nails “done.” My nails have always been weak and thin, so I have been getting gel or SNS powder applied to my nails. But, the upkeep associated with keeping my nails looking good finally got the best of me. So, about three weeks ago, I had my nail tech take all of it off of my nails.
I also had them cut my nails short in the hopes that they wouldn’t split or break. That has not been the result, however, and my nails have split, and split, and split. I have had to put a bandaid on two of my nails because they are into the quick and have bled some. I have been applying CND RescueRXx, but my daughter took that back to Alaska with her, so I have another bottle on order. Typing has been so hard since my fingertips are sore, so today while I was out shopping, I decided to apply KISS Acrylic nails that glue on. Some ladies that I know told me that the nails would stay on about two weeks. That should be enough time for my nails to grow out, and hopefully, they won’t keeping splitting.
The weather threw me a curve this past weekend. When I travel to visit my sister down in the Atlanta area, I think of “Hotlanta,” and I believe that it is always hot and sunny, but that was NOT the case this past weekend. It was downright cold, and it rained almost the entire time that I was there. I was sure glad that I took this bright yellow Fairisle Turtleneck from The Loft with me because I forgot to take a coat. This sweater was enough warmth for me as long as I wasn’t outside for long periods.
The sunny sweater was part of my Loft try-on session last Thursday (here), and I mentioned how warm, and snuggly the sweater was. It was like a premonition of the weather that was to come. Lol! I am wearing a medium, and as you can see, the sweater is plenty big enough for me. Here is the link to the sweater that is on sale at 60% off.
If you guessed that I would choose to wear gray jeans with this turtleneck sweater, then you were right, and you were also wrong. Lol! Yes, I did end up wearing gray jeans, but that was not what I had intended to wear. I had meant to wear white jeans with this sweater, but because it was raining, I ended up changing my mind.
I took Ashleigh to the airport, and we were in a huge hurry because we weren’t sure what kind of traffic we would encounter. Plus, she was taking Tom back to Alaska as a carryon, and she had no idea how big a hassle that was going to be. So, we were trying to leave in time for her to have extra time just in case there was a problem. I got in such a big hurry that I forgot to change from my house slippers, and I drove to the airport and back in them. Lol! It was all good because these have a hard sole. My DIL has a pair of mules with fur lining, and they are adorable. I am thinking about getting a pair of them myself. I am showing you a few shoes like she has.
These pointy toe ankle boots by Sam Edleman were what I had intended to wear. I love the striking look of these Fiora booties, and how they make my legs look like they go on forever. I wanted to show these boots from the side so that you could see how the front of the boot is higher than the back of the boot. Plus, from this angle, you get to see the side details that have a tiny buckle on the side. The heel is higher than some of you like, so I am going to link to a few boots that have a lower heel. Here is the link to this pair.
Another reason that I went to Atlanta this weekend was to celebrate the birthday of my beautiful niece. She is as pretty on the inside as she is the outside, and is an angel. She had a Gala to attend on Saturday night, and she asked me to do her makeup for her. She loves horses, but makeup is not her thing, and she hardly ever puts any on. Of course, when you are this pretty, you can get by without wearing makeup. Lol! Happy Birthday, Rach!!!
I wanted to let you know that my DIL will be once again adding a lot of jewelry to my Too Much Stuff resale page. If you are interested in joining the group, then click here. If you are already in the group, then watch for the announcement for when she will start posting the items that are for sale. Last Friday, I mentioned that a lot of you were asking me about my eyelashes. I know that pictures are worth a thousand words, so I am going to let these photos say everything for me. This photo was in October 2016. I started using Lash Boost this month for the first time, and I had a slow growth process. As you can see, I had NO eyelashes when I started.
This photo may not be clear, but you can see that my eyelashes were starting to get longer. This photo was three months after I started using Lash Boost.
And, here I am years later still loving that my eyelashes get comments from strangers. When you go from NONE to WOW, you can’t help but be thrilled. I am still offering the 20.00 rebate back on a purchase of Lash Boost, but the purchase has to be as a Preferred Customer to qualify. If you have any questions about Lash Boost or what becoming my Preferred Customer means, then email me at [email protected] Here is the link to Lash Boost.
