Top 3 drugstore picks

What a happy blog, can’t wait for more post!

Splash of Happiness

Hey everyone! For today’s blog post, I am going to be recommending to you my top 3 drugstore picks. There is so much variety in the drugstore that it can sometimes be quite difficult to choose which products are best. Therefore, I thought I would tell you about a few of my personal favourites! I hope you find this useful and enjoy!

George precision felt tip liner: (£2.75)

I would highly recommend this felt tip liner because it is very affordable and makes winged eyeliner so much easier. The pen is really smooth which makes it easier to build it up and achieve the perfect line! It really defines and emphasises my eyes which makes it great for a night out and gives me such a flawless look! I love how it doesn’t rub off easily so it is very long-lasting!

Rimmel Wonder’ full mascara: (£7.99)

Yay It’s Friday, Now what????

Glad I woke up this morning and thank God for letting me do so, but I sometimes wonder why? Everyone tells me I should just be thankful and don’t complain about, go out and do something but what? I’m almost 40 years old and I’m confused, confused about what route I need to take at this point in my life. I have always taken care of others, but it’s time to take care of me. How??? Hubby has been home for a week and it’s so hard trying to pretend that I’m ok, trying to look busy when I all want to do is pull the covers over my head and sleep, sleep all the days away until a good one comes along. Yep I know that’s not possible but it sure felt good drifting off thinking about it, lol!  I feel like I’m a prisoner of my mind, feeling trap by bad thoughts and horrible “what ifs”, what if this blog isn’t a success, what if I can’t find a job, what if my hubby decides he can’t handle this new crazy me anymore? All of this racing through my already cloudy mind, but today is Friday and I’m going to find something productive to do today to keep my mind off the “what if’s”! Smooches and stay tuned…………….

Super Woman Syndrome, Not Me!

So toady I finally got up out of the bed and made lunch for me and the hubby, yesterday went to doctors and they decided to up my meds and said I should think about some out-patient therapy. Yeah somebody else to tell my situation to who isn’t listening, oh well I made lunch today because I slept half the day and my hubby looks at me crazy. I mean how do you explain to someone who you’re not being lazy and you really wish you could get up!  Does he remember the fabulous “Diva” he married? Does he remember how I worked several jobs, clean the house, and manage to raise a fine young son. I wasn’t always this way, my brain has completely taken over at this point and I hate it just as much as he does.  I feel ashamed and embarrassed that I this Strong Black Woman can’t seem to “pull it together or “snap out of it”.! I pray about it day and night and sometimes wonder what I have done to have to suffer this way.? I’m strong or at least I use to be because that side of me has been lost to this illness. I would give all the clothes, shoes, and nice purses away to be normal again. Just to be able to get out of  bed and enjoy the beautiful sun, but I can’t.
