Happiness Is….

A rainy Saturday. Riding my bike six miles in new bike shorts my son/daughter in law gave me. And because I can… I’m snuggled in a blanket watching Thor:The Dark World. It’s a self care Saturday. Advertisements

Shopping blues

Hello friends! I’ve had a weird experience lately, I’ll cal it the shopping blues. I went to Marshall’s, JCPenney, Target, and Old Navy and only found one blouse that I really liked. I got the one at OldNavy but sheesh am I depressed?? Really only find one thing to buy? Granted I didn’t hit H&M or Ann Taylor but not a ton of time as I had an eye appointment yesterday after I got off work. Maybe I wasn’t really putting my whole effort into the experience? Sometimes that happens to me and I think maybe I’m overwhelmed with work…

Selfie Suggestions (SAFETY)

Hello Friends! I hope you all made it through Monday?? Thank goodness it’s almost over; it rained and snowed my whole commute to work! Me and Monday are not friends at all!

New Year Unresolutions

Hello Friends! Some of you might know I’m a therapist in my paid gig and honestly New Years Resolutions have always made me kinda crazy. Even in my pre therapist days. I remember being in high school and watching the Miss America pageant and worrying about my weight and¬†always having a goal to lose weight…

Musings on Exercise and other random thoughts on makeup

Hello Friends! So I worked out yesterday and today! Yay me! I do feel better when I work out. It was interesting though. At the gym I rode the stationary bike for eight miles…felt very accomplished and strong…I love bike riding although it’s more fun outside, same with hiking/walking. Although there is snow and ice…

Hair today (but I’m not gonna say gone tomorrow)

Hey all, I thought I would share part of my struggle these last few years that maybe some of you will relate. Many women my age, through disease or hormone changes suffer from thinning hair or hair loss. I have struggled with this also; I have Hashimotos (autoimmune disease) that first started with hypothyroid (a…
