Menopause | Hormones | Hysterectomy | Ovarian Cancer

Menopause | Hormones | Hysterectomy | Ovarian Cancer

The Present  -  My hysterectomy is scheduled for June 23rd and I'm currently 56yrs old. It all started about 3 month ago when I felt some pain on and off on my right side. I was about 2 month out from my annual GYN appointment so I decided to just wait until then because the pain wasn't that bad. To be completely honest, I was in the gym exercising everyday and my life was pretty normal. During my exam, the doctor felt something on my right side and decided to schedule an ultrasound. About 3 days later I got the call with my results, the ultrasound showed a very large mass covering my right ovary.

Lifestyle ~ Stanton Mahogany Storage Cabinets for Makeup Organization

I recently decided to replace everything in my makeup/office with mahogany furniture so that everything looks more formal. Initially on each side of my makeup table were two silver Helmer's that I purchased awhile back from Ikea, but due to my huge (not massive) makeup collection, I definitely needed more storage. There wasn't many options for mahogany storage but I came across these beautiful Stanton storage cabinets online that came in multiple colors.... black, white, cherry, antique grey and chestnut.

Shop Ombre Hair Extensions for Cute Summer Hair

Fashion | Tie Dye Maxi Skirt

This skirt is one of my favorites because it's so comfortable, of course it's Jersey which is why I love it so much.  Jersey is such a wonderful fabric, it's very stretchable, doesn't require ironing and after washing just hang dry and it reshapes itself perfectly.

Swatches | YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture

 YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture

I love wearing different color mascaras so when YSL released their limited edition set of 9 Mascara Vinyl Couture, I quickly snagged a few.  These mascaras are quite expensive, they cost $29 each and you receive 0.21 fl oz of product.  The colors that I purchased were 2 AUBERGINE, 8 DARK SPARKLE, 7 PURPLE, 3 GREEN and 5 BLUE.  While the formula is nice, there's no lengthening aspects about it. I experienced lots of volume and separation, but I didn't experience any length. My personal preference would be to use this mascara as a top coat to add a little sparkle and pizzazz to the finished lashes.
