The snow arrived!  And of course by next weekend it will be 60 degs!  Only in the South.
I am grateful for the moisture as we have had drought on the acreage for the past year - I worry that someone will throw out a cigarette and catch the 30ac on fire.

I am using this new Color 10 in 1 from L'Oreal - it's called a spray protector and helps with 10 diff hair issues: 1-Protection  2-Shine  3-Softness  4-Consistency of hair fibers  5-Smothness  6-Detangling  7-Easier blow dry  8-Anti-breakage  9-Protects against the look of split ends
10-Helps reduce frizz
I am glad it has UV filters and I like the shine it provides ~ I was able to skip instant conditioner after showering.  There was also noticeable volume after blow drying - it's a keeper!

OPI's spring collection has some lovely colors - and since I had 20% off one item at Ulta, I purchased "Spare Me a French Quarter".  This is a gorgeous berry color that will be great all year.

I don't know why I am smiling because my head has hurt for 2 days even with the heavy hitter pain meds.  But that is the thing about migraineurs - we feel that we have to soldier on and put on the happy face.  It's exhausting and it really does not fool anyone - most of the family can look at my eyes and know that the headache monster is here.  But I just refuse to miss any more time with my grandchildren - I resent the time I have lost but after 4 brain surgeries there is no more to be done.
So I choose to smile!
Be well my loves.

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!

  9. I am an OPI girl and a migraine girl too! I love the names of the colors of polish. My favorite right now is an aqua color "I can' find my Czechbook". I get migraines for 3 days and like you, I keep going on through the pain and the pain med hangover!!
