It doesn’t take much to make me happy these days. Living with a chronic illness really changes your perspective. So I’m always looking for something…anything to brighten my day. These are my latest finds:
Let me start by saying, I’ve never been a big believer in vitamins, because I’ve never seen any results positive or negative from consuming them, but I have dutifully choked, gulped, swallowed and chewed them for years. (now, I’m superstitious…if I stop, will something bad happen?) But, I do believe in Biotin. It hasn’t grown hair to my liking, but it sure as hell has grown nails!
I have long, strong, beautiful nails! Haven't had great nails since giving birth to my first child. Better than acrylic nails and much healthier. I’m giddy with happiness over this. Love hearing them click against the keyboard and love using my index finger to point…just to show off my gorgeous long nail.
I know…it’s the little things.
And that leads me to my next favorite thing: Miracle Gel by Sally Hansen. This polish is awesome. But there’s a trick: you have to put on TWO coats of the topcoat and your polish will last two weeks. If you only do one coat, doesn’t last as long.
I’m also a sucker for lotions and creams. If I’m not feeling well, at least I smell good. A few weeks ago, my sweet sister treated me to a lovely facial; I must’ve looked particularly horrid and she was trying to lift my spirits and then she gifted me with my next favorite thing: Clarisonic cleansing brush. LOVE it! Give it a try. It really brightens your face in a non-abrasive, gentle way. Again, it doesn’t take much to make me smile. ;-)))
And for my final favorite thing: TA-DA!
NOT SO NEW IN TOWN, second in the Harmony Homecomings series will be releasing July 7th. #sohappy! Been waiting a long time and I’m thrilled it’s right around the corner. Stay tuned for an excerpt next month.
