My Ipsy Bag

I blame my sister for this.  She post about her monthly boxes she gets and I was very curious about them, so I tried one.  Ipsy,  it's only $10 a month and the send you all kinds of make up stuff.  This is my 3rd month getting it and I really like them.  You get a cute makeup bag also.  This month I really like the polish, cool color. I will try it after Oct.  This is my pink month.  I also got this cool navy mineral makeup eyeshadow.  Can't wait to try that color.  They also sent a brush. The pink lip liner I know I will use.  The hair spray I probably wont use since I'm wearing braids.  I really like this month's bag.. it's really cute. So check them out Ipsy Bag

October..... Can I be Honest

Can I be honest.  This is a hard month for me.  Yes I am so very thankful for being cancer free right now and I am so very thankful that I didn't have to go thru chemo or radiation. It's just kinda hard seeing the changes my body has gone thru in the past year and a half with all the surgeries I needed. There are some other things going on but I don't want to discuss them until some more conformation later this month.  I am still not able to do some of things I use to do or want to do.The meds are rough on me with some of the side effects.  Sometimes I just want to forget I ever had cancer.  Cancer has really turned my life upside down.  This surgery induced menopause I'm in doesn't help  Maybe I am just a little more emotional lol.  I think a lot of it has to do with not having much control over my body...

The up side is that I am cancer free. Because of I what I have gone thru many women I know have gone and had their mammograms. Thank God no one has been diagnosed with breast cancer.... that I know of.  This is not an easy fight.  It's a battle physically, mentally and emotionally.  God has help me keep laughing thru this journey.  I still have a very long life to live. I have had to make a few adjustments  but I plan on being around to see my great grans. God has help me become a stronger person over the last year.

So rock your Pink this month... Get you Mammogram!!
