My Favorite Things A Note for Me

My favorite things| cosmetics

I like Clinque cosmetics Their clinque stick blushers. I especially like their foundations, matte.  I can't do without their extra strength facial bars but I find that the daily astringents are either like water or too strong for me.

Origin gel moisturizers and Murad cream cleanser even though it is expensive.

These cosmetics are expensive but I find that some of the drugstore brands are pretty good.
I even like Wet & Wild cosmetics and Rimmel and Cover Girl.

I have a tip for you.  I am light skinned and I use the black Opal concealer as an eye shadow.  It gives me that smoky look' 

I have used Maybelline eyebrow pencils for years.

How I Am Doing

I have been fighting a battle since 2014.  I was told I had breast CANCER  I went through radiation treatments and two surgeries.  I was happy when I was told I was cancer free.

However I was fatigued and depressed.  I have had yearly mammeograms and am cancer free.

I still I feel tired and depressed.  I have fought this everyday.  I feel however that I am coming back to myself.  I stopped exercising during the summer.  My exercise bike is my form of exercise and is outside.  I felt it was too hot outside to use it.  I just about gave up and didn't exercise.  I think it was because I was trying to do too much and was to hard on myself.

I played the keyboard, exercised, read books on breast cancer felt bad because I could do very little housework and had guilt feelings  because I could't do so much in a day.  I gave up but I am coming back.  I  cooked today and exercised. I feel elated because I got my hair cut in a pixie and colored yesterday.

I am trying to eat more vegetables and grilled chicken, reading health tips and I feel better.  It is important though not to expect too much of yourself.  You may give up like I did but I am coming back.  Another great thing.  I went up to about 170 lbs. about a year ago.  I visited my onnocologist yesterday and was weighed.  I weigh 154 pounds and I was elated.  If I lose 10 pounds I will celebrate

Goodbye for a while.

How I Am Doing

Here it is September 27,2017 already.  I have been waiting for cooler weather and it is finally here.  I am going to an event tomorrow where mostly ladies will be.  It;s so nice.  I have gone the last two years.   It;s given by the hospital where I got my breast cancer treatment. 

It's a health and beauty expo which is nice.  I believe you will look better outside if you are good inside.  They give a gift bag that has all kind of cute goodies in it.  There's refreshments, a dinner and snacks.  I won't be on my diet tomorrow;  I think I deserve a few treats.

There's also some entertainment.  Last year there were kids doing hip hop dancing, so cute.  I hope I see some of the people I know.  If not I am being positive and hope I will meet some new ones..  well it is late bedtime.  Maybe I'll let you know how it goes afterwards.

Journey Goes On

I haven't written in a while probably because I hate to put things together, writing before I post.  So I'll just write off the top of my head.  This is what I used to do in school and got good grades.  The teacher probably liked my writing skills.

It's been a while and I got a mamogram May 1 and I am happy and relieved to say that I am cancer free.  I have to keep reminding myself to try and eat healthy, cut the fast food out, to exercise also.  I have to be careful because of other health issues like high blood pressure, cholesterel and I don;t want to get diabetes so I have just about cut out sweets.

Going through the daily radiation treatments for about a month daily was enough but I am glad I did get treatments and caught it before it spread.

Well this is all for now.  I'll post about something lighter like organizing and makeup another time.

More of My Journey

I read a bloggers posts and she tells how are friends kept her going and inspired her during hard times. I wonder about this and express that I wish I had friends like this.  I suppose I have in my life. .
It seemed like I have been coming in contact with some people who are always worried that somebody else has more than them.  Some blame everybody for their misfortunes.  I don't know. I hope I am not that way.

However I have mood swings and they probably affect the people around me.  I must say that there are people who will work for you to be your best.  I remember a Doctor who helped me through radiation treatments in 2014 for breast cancer.  He congratulated me for finishing it and made me feel like I had people who inspire me to be great and high energy.  I think about others like that when I am on my exercise bike and playing my piano solos on the keyboard, also writing as I am doing now.  I
have to sum up the energy and remind myself that I have to keep going.

Now that I think of the people who supported me in somethings I was doing I know I was wrong in thinking I had none who did.  Taking care of yourself and being the best you can is just to bring the energy in you up and keep on keeping on.

Accept Or Not

It's strange how some people complain about some people not accepting them.  However some of these people are so rude and bossy that they make it hard for you to be around them.  Some of the people who are not accepting them are snobbish yes but you can't;t expect everybody to accept you or like you.

The thing is often when you want to be accepted by a group of people you have to become like them. This is fine if these people are cool and not going down.  If they are and doing things you don't want to do like drugs or alcohol all the time you are better off not being a part of them.  Remember don't compromise your values and goals to be accepted.  Look for people who are inspirational and want the things as you do.
