Hello greenies! As you may have noticed, there was no discounts post last Friday; there was just too many things going on and I am spreading myself (too) thin as it is. There are parts of the day when things look better, then there are parts of the days,or whole days, where things are bleak. Severe lack of sleep is still very much present, though not as horrible as it was, say a month or so ago. But this week has also brought a new promise – that of a Spring; as I walked outside, I saw some Spring flowers already showing off their beauty, the birds have that promising Spring sound in their songs, and I even managed to smile a bit, especially due to realizing I’ve noticed all of this. I’ve been pretty much detached from… nearly everything, just being on the go, having one thing in mind, and even the thoughts haven’t been flowing easily. Yes, it’s hard. But I am a fighter, I am grinding through all of this, with faith, optimism and hope. And determination. And then, then there is kindness and care coming from those with good hearts; every now and again, I go back and re-read some of the emails that very special and good souls sent my way, and – believe me – they work, even if only for a moment, and for such moments – I am thankful.

Living under such stress, it does take a toll on one’s health, as well as on the skin. In such times, getting all glammed up does not cross one’s mind, but I do try to at least swap a bit of pressed powder and do my eye brows. I try. The stress and severe lack of sleep shows on my face as well, and I try to keep as simple and quick of a routine as possible: toner, facial oil and peeling once a week. My nails, now they have been pushed aside in the past few months; there’s absolutely no time and even no will to paint them with nail polish lately. But such is life, when you’re dealing with such serious and exhausting situation, there are many, and I mean many things for which you do not have the time and – quite honestly – don’t even cross your mind as they fall off as really not important.

Writing weekly discount posts – they keep me a bit connected to how it used to be, because lately, I’ve felt too disconnected to too many things. As far as reviews (not to mention all the detailed informative articles I had planned for you) – they will just have to wait. I am certain that all the businesses who have sent me products for the review, read my blog and understand my situation. And I hope you, my dear readers, haven’t given up on me either; going by the emails you’re sending me and the traffic, you’re still here. Thank you.

Happy Weekend!

Feb 122016
 

Hello greenies! It’s another Friday and the weekend is around the corner. For me, lately, the days have been more or less the same; just trying to stay above the water. But in such hard times, there is always a ray of light and hope, and it comes in a form of small progress and kind and supportive words from special people, who have a good and carrying heart.

Gratitude. When you’re feeling pretty down and exhausted, and you receive encouraging, kind and supportive words from good people. Ever since I started this little blog of mine, I’ve connected with some amazing people and eventually, we became good friends. And this week, I received two touching emails from two very special ladies. So much uplifting, carrying and love was sent my way. It touches the heart, it makes me forget about the hardship, even if just for a moment. and it is in times like this, especially, when felling grateful and thankful shows you the light in life where there seems to be so much darkness.

To the two of my dear friends, and you know who you are, who sent such beautiful and encouraging words my way this week – I thank you from the bottom of my heart and may you be blessed.

Happy Weekend!

Feb 052016
 

Hello greenies! Another Friday is here and the weekend around the corner. In the past weeks, I am not certain whether the times flies or not; on one hand, I feel like it does because I’ve been dealing with the same situation on a daily basis, while, at the same time, there are ups and downs, there are moments when I feel things are getting better, and then something else happens… For the most part, I feel exhausted, and sometimes, I feel like I’m on some type of auto-pilot. When dealing with an illness in the family, I think, looking back, it was the hardest not even knowing what’s the cause, what’s the actual illness, in order to know what to research and how to face the issue. Modern medicine can be of little to no help at the times, and sometimes – more often than not – detrimental. There are certain aspects where you, especially when the immediate relief is needed, have to give in and apply modern medicine, but as you go along the way, especially if you’re like me and you lean on natural sources, you start to incorporate natural medicine more and more.

Taking care for an ill family member takes a huge toll on a caregiver as well. There’s a lot of stress, frustration, occasional feelings of helplessness, a feeling of being cornered, and yes – even anger, exhaustion and severe lack of sleep. I am aware of the need of taking care of myself as well, but so far, I’ve put myself at the back end; not sure how else to approach it all otherwise. Even if it’s still very difficult, and looking back, I have a reason to look at the present as being far better, I still remain optimistic and have faith in order to find the strength; even if sometimes just to get out of bed after not getting any sleep at all.

Every Friday, when I decide that I need to stay connected with the world outside of what’s my life at the moment, and write my weekly discounts post, sometimes, when I sit down, I don’t see myself having the energy to go through with it. But as I start writing, even if interrupted many times, it gets better with every word. There are a lot of things I miss in my life now (mostly, taking the long walks through the forest), but taking it one day at the time and knowing what my priority is, I know I will manage. There are moments in our lives when we feel we can’t go on anymore, that we don’t have anymore strength, and then we take a moment and realize we did far more than we thought we were able and capable.

And yes, as cliche as it may sound – love does conquer all. Some stores are already offering Valentine’s Day gifts, so if you plan on giving a small token of appreciation in a form of some type of natural beauty product to your loved one, maybe you’ll find a good deal bellow.
