And Just Like That – It’s Over

Here we are at Friday evening and my nail polish is chipped on both my hands and feet.  The way my nails look is a visual representation of how I feel.  This week has been both stressful and tiring, but I am very thankful it is over.  This week ending marks the end of another school year and an end (almost) of one of the classes I am taking.  It is a time to reflect this weekend on my goals, accomplishments and what I have planned for myself next.  The intense challenges I have faced over the last 10 months have made me to take a step back and realize that those small moments in life are worth cherishing because there will always be someone ready to douse your flame.  Around every damn corner it seems too!

While some relationships have withered, some were cultivated in such amazing ways.  The pride you feel watching loved ones reach their goals is a beautiful thing to witness and experience.  When I say loved ones, for me, it goes beyond just immediate family members.  When I consider someone a friend, they are “loved ones” to me.  It may not be romantic love, but platonic, adoration, appreciation, and respect all the same.  I want those around me to ascend to their next level in wherever their passion lie.

This goes for you as well, the reader.  I hope if this finds you that you let go of whatever is weighing you down.  Whatever you feel tied to these days.  It could be anything, any issue clouding your mind with cobwebs of denial, disaster and depression.  Remember that those small hours when the light is just right and they are smiling and laughing because it might be a “girls party,” those are the times to hold tight to when the darkness comes calling through its many vices.  Sometimes we have to let our guards down and have that tea party, play pretend, color inside and outside of the lines.  Sometimes it is all we have and sometimes it is more than enough.

Have a great weekend!

Weekend Wishes

What are you getting into this weekend?  I hope whatever it is, you find the joy in it.  This should be a very interesting weekend for me.  Tonight is one of my favorite nights, date night.  I love any excuse for getting dolled up for a night out!  As far as makeup goes, I’ll stick with a gold base and maroon accent for a mild smokey eye, eye liner, mascara and a soft plum lip.  It is all very subtle but I prefer my makeup like that than the shocking style.  Makeup should show off your natural beauty, not a person you aren’t.

Cobalt Blue with lime green accent on my fingers and toes.  You can see where I made a few mistakes with the polish.  We’re only human, right? Haha

Orange gemstone ring with diamond accents.  It’s mix media but it works together well.
