This week I decided to try Revlon's Sky's the Limit in Colorstay Gel Envy, knowing I would be wearing a lot of blue:
 Not sure I am crazy about that color - I think this blue is more my style:
But I think the plum color is still the current favorite.
 I love going into the craft stores this time of year because the holiday items are displayed.  I am going to forgo my shabby chic pink style for the Christmas tree this year and use burgundy, cream & gold accents - these are the colors for the tree top bow:
I always leave some ornaments off so the grands can 'help' - there is nothing like seeing the holidays thru their eyes:
I love them so! He gets all my money & she gets the jewelry and anything designer - she has already picked out her favorite bracelets but at 5 yrs old I am sure this will change over time!

    1. Unfortunately advanced planning is necessary as I am a daily migraineur so I lose many days to this awful disease.
      Also, I tend to think things to death - do I really want this color?
      I will agonize days for a simple selection!!
      Thank you for visiting.

  11. I use to be a migraineur as you put it until the doctor gave me caffergot. It's caffeine. Nowadays when I feel one coming on I drink a strong cup of coffee, relax in a nice quiet environment, shut off the lights and in 20 minutes or so I'm good to go and off and running. Also, I don't wear my hair up anymore. Anyway just a tip to try and help. Grands that's a great name for them. Think I'll borrow that one because they are grand aren't they? I have a great grand as you already know love him to pieces, but my youngest grand he's my heart, named after my daughter who passed from SIDS & he just stole my heart. Love it when they come over and just crawl all over me. hahaha I love how you said she has your jewelry and he's got your money hahahahaha Same way here. I can so relate. Only problem is I have 11 grands and the 1 great grand. Yep an even dozen. hahah We should hang out sometime and swap stories. Thanks for sharing your pics too. YOU'RE THE GREATEST thanks for stopping by. Following you-whooooooo !

  13. Some great nail colors - work requirements don't allow me to have colored fingernails, but I can do whatever I like on my toes, so I always like finding fun colors to put there.
