The Healing Power of Glitter

I had a friend once that said if you put on sparkles and you don't fell better- you should be able to sue the glitter company. Because, really, how does looking at sparkles not make you feel better? If it doesn't, then something is wrong with you and my advice is to pile on more sparkles until you are over yourself.

My mother dressed us in masses of rhinestones and glitter and ruffles when we were kids. For years I had a very strong, very real aversion to all things glitter and ruffled. But slowly, I am reacquiring my tastes for them. More so for sparkles than ruffles.

Today I was having an off day and so I did exactly what my besite, AC, taught me and got a manicure over lunch. Mood gone, glitter good! I went for "Bring on the Bling." It scares me a little that this is from OPI's Burlesque collection, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. Even if Burlesque was quite possibly the WORST move I have seen in years. Sorry Cher.

PS- couldn't get a good pic of my own nails, so I stole this one from someone. You probably noticed.

This glitter love I have has really taken flight of late, and is making my life much more fun. Some other glitter lovelies from my Pinterest page (LOVE Pinterest!)

All hail the healing power of glitter!

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
