MelodySusie Portable LED Nail Lamp – Violetilac 6W Mini Nail Dryer Curing LED GEL Nail Polish Professionally – White – Review

Available at Amazon.com

I bought it off the American Amazon because the similar version on the Canadian was $50, .com has it for $10.99 USD.. I bought a top coat gel, and the lamp and with duties taxes shipping etc it was $32 CAD so it was a better price than buying off the Canadian site.

I was a little nervous because I had never done anything like this at home on my own, I love having my nails painted I always feel more confident and put together but I absolutely dislike having to paint my nails. I find most polishes won’t last me a full day without chipping except for one brand I recently found but I always Loved having my nails done with gels and shellacs but…

TOP COAT –  I’ve used a lot of top coats and they either don’t work and still chip the same day, or they bubble, take forever to dry or it’s so thick it doesn’t spread properly! But this formula is absolutely perfect, no over powering scent and goes on insanely smoothly and dries quickly! Gave me salon quality nails at home with a regular old top coat.

BASE COAT – I’ve never been big on the whole ‘base coat’ because I thought of it as too time consuming but oh my goodness it makes my nails look so insanely gorgeous! It’s totally salon quality and a GREAT price! It dries surprisingly fast, and applies easily, I adore it. Will definitely continue using…

Open Letter to A Good Friend

This was a big issue for my mom too. I did understand it and wish I could have helped.

Handihelp Blog

Steve & me at Payne LakeMaybe by explaining it to you I can come to understand it better myself. I have a lot of sadness. How it presents in my mind is influenced by many factors. I’m not sure, but it seems to be becoming more prevalent either with growing older or as my years as a quadriplegic increase or both. I find myself longing for some of the abilities of my former life, like independence, freedom, spontaneity and self-reliance. Truly, if I have any part of these they are mere shadows of what they used to be. Oh, I forgot the most important one is control. That’s the issue! What control do I have in my life? Really?

Mental control, I feel, I have more of and most of the time it allows me to keep the other at a distance. Physical control, however, of my overall environment is really lacking. What I can…

Hoping We Would End It Well

Caring for people with whom you had difficult relationships is such a challenge. Thank you for sharing your way of thinking about this.

Pursuing Hope and Finding Joy

grandma and mom

In September 2000 I was a 33 year old mom to 3 young boys.  My grandma, pictured here with my mom, died after 2 weeks of an acute illness.  She was the woman who knew me best; the person who prayed for me every day without fail.  My heart was shattered.  Exactly a month later my mom had a stroke that disabled her so severely we moved her 400 miles away from her home because she could no longer live alone.  I found myself in what is called the “Sandwich Generation” (definition: a generation of people, typically in their thirties or forties, responsible for bringing up their own children, while caring for their aging parents.)

Prior to this, my mom and I had done the difficult work of fixing our broken relationship.  She went through her own faith journey and submitted her life to Christ on a Walk to Emmaus in 1997.  I had wrestled with God…

Having had IC since I was about 33 and working in a high pressure teaching job with fifth graders I can imagine how difficult this is for your daughter. I hope she will gradually learn to educate her friends in a positive way so they understand her differences and learn to help her live her best life as my good friends have helped me.

Keep supporting each other, finding the foods and comforts you both love, and I hope her flare calms as she gets into school and a new routine in the weeks ahead. Deborah
