I’ve worn glasses since I was in 6th grade. I had to get them for being nearsighted as well as astigmatism. I always hated glasses. They made me feel claustrophobic and always slide down my nose. I would rather quint or miss out on life than wear them. And squinting and missing out is what I did the majority of my life. I had glasses for class, for driving, for going to the movies but the rest of life was a blurry fog.
I chew my nails and cuticles. I’ve tried everything to stop over the years but the only thing for me that worked long-term was getting acrylic tips on my nails. This made the nail impossible to chew, and the nail bed thicker so I can’t get to my cuticles with my teeth. For almost four years I’ve been making the bi-weekly trip to my nail salon to get my nails done.
Rodial reached out and offered to send me a few pieces from their line. I had heard great things about Rodial (and loved seeing them as a mentor on Project Runway Startup) so was excited. Supposedly the products are so effective the reduce the need for plastic surgery. I haven’t been considering plastic surgery but I am interested in products that will keep my skin looking as great as possible for as long as possible.
New Year’s Eve is around the corner. Every year my sister throws an amazing New Year’s Eve bash where sequins are highly recommended. I wore this look last year; not sure yet what sparkly confection from the back of the closet I’ll pull out this year but I’ll be sure to share the outfit on Instagram. So I go whole hog with the glitz, but even for previous years where I counted down to the New Year on my couch in slippers I loved adding some sparkle to my look.
