I'm not a fan of snakes at all, actually I'm terrified of all of them to be honest. The colors in the collection are gorgeous.

Zoya Enamored Collection: Fall 2023

Is it really Fall without a collection from Zoya? Over the years I can't think of a Zoya collection that I haven't liked. Their polish theme hit the mark and go great with each season. I have to admit I look forward to the Fall Collection each year.

Zoya Enamored Collection: Fall 2023

I love that Zoya included sparkle polishes for their Fall Collection this year. I can wear these polishes over a solid color or alone on my my nails.

Kiss Salon Acrylic Natural Long Nails

When I use fake nails I've been using these nails Long Acrylic nails by Kiss. If you use your rewards at CVS, you can get a pack of these at really amazing price. I think I paid maybe $1.50 each for a few packs if these back in the Spring.

 Hello Everyone!

Some of you may have wondered with everything I've experienced the past few months have I pursued therapy. The answer is yes. I  like to think of myself as a woman of God and I pray constantly and keep faith even when I feel lost. In addition to my faith I also feel that therapy helps me cope. Over the years therapy, has helped me put things in perspective in my life. This time I think I do have a lot of work to do in trying to balance my life and cope with my thoughts and feelings.

One thing I realized is when to know to walk away. I mentioned I recently started a new job a few months ago, but Friday I officially resigned. To make a long story short, no job is worth being mistreated, taken advantage, and making my health a last priority. I was telling my therapist that I felt free when I quit. 

My therapist gave me insight on struggling with ruminating thoughts...I thought I'd share it with you all incase you struggle with the same issue. now that my brain is In a safe space. It's like Alexa...when she says to much and you would say Alexa stop, the same applies with my thoughts. I never thought about it like that, but it makes a lot sense.

Monday is a clean slate, I have a new job. Still doing what I love. I'll post more about that in an upcoming post. I'm looking forward to this new opportunity.
