GOATS

April was a month that through me off from my usual routine. As I reported in my March Favorites, I had to go to Tennessee for a few weeks to help my mom recover from illness and surgery.

The good news, is that she is feeling much better now and is at home but it’s going to take her many months to feel “normal” again.

When I went down there, it was worse than I imagined. My sisters admitted to sort of… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Day-Glo Toes: Neon Nail Color Guide

I wouldn’t dare wear neon  but I would when it comes to cosmetics. I swoon for richly pigmented orange and pink lipstick or electric green eyeliner or teal eyeshadow. I also love a bright nail polish. No neon running shorts, I’ve already lived through that, can’t do it again. So I’ve put together some of my favorite shades in all price ranges. I haven’t found a chip-free, long-lasting nail color yet. I have learned that price has nothing to do with quality. One of the worst polishes I have… Continue reading
