Fall nails

I don't have the most awesome nails, however I do my best to take care of them, especially being a nurse! I especially love the Sally Hansen Inst-Dri nail polishes because I can do my nails quickly and easily without too much time or fuss. This color is rich deep wine, named Wined Up. Another must have for me is a great hand cream or lotion for dry hands that I tend to get from multiple hand washings, cooler weather and yep menopause! 1) No. 7 Protect and Perfect Overnight Hand Treatment 2) Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream 3) Caudalie Hand and Nail creme 4) Nivea Soft face/body/hand moisturizing creme

High Tea with Pixi win!

I had the pleasure of winning the High Tea with Pixi contest and received the beautiful Fairy Light Solo eyeshadow in No 10 Bronze Beam. It is velvety to the touch, slightly shimmering and makes a nice day shadow. It leans toward gold bronze. I love the texture and the ability to sheer it out or make it more dramatic! I also received the Pixi Fairy necklace. Pixi has some really great products and I have more than a dozen pieces in my collection from Target. I also love watching the videos that Petra has on the Pixi website. Very informative and easy to do. Do you wear Pixi products? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Thanks for reading and enjoy your day, GypsyNurse Sherry

Seriously, we do it all!!!

Do you ever feel like that you have to do it all, no matter what? So many people rely on me and yet sometimes I feel like I am going to drop one of the many balls that I am juggling! I wear many hats, wife, mother, nurse, daughter, aunt etc. and each of these hats requires so much sometimes. I have my faith, some downtime that I relish (I am a voracious reader)and I attempt to take good care of my body as well as my mind. It takes so much out of me and I have to remind myself that when it feels like it is too much it usually means I need to step back and let others handle things for awhile. It isn't necessary for my sanity to be harmed! This time of the year is especially hard as the holiday season is upon us and there is so much to do, parties to plan and attend, gifts and the list seems endless! What will you do this year to take care of you and allow others to help? Good food for thought!

Christmas time product blues

Yep, I said Christmas time blues! Now let me explain myself. The awesome variety of palettes, packages and great makeup and skincare products that beckon from the likes of Ulta, Sephora etc. I get blinded by the pretty products when actually I don't need another palette or lipstick or well, anything! Yet my poor self gets so excited about these beautiful offerings and today I decided to shop my overwhelming beautiful stash and change up my holiday makeup. To that end here are some pictures of the wonderful things I remembered. So excited to get to wear some extraordinary colors, textures and get a little bolder now that the Texas weather has finally gotten into the 60's. Not so cold, but hey it's Texas lol. Product list: 1)Cargo Vintage Escape Eye Pallette 2)IT Vitality Face Pallette 3)Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light 4)Ponds Luminous Finish BB Cream in Medium 5)Lorac Cococin Cream Foundation Compact 6)Benefit Gimme Brow in Blonde 7)Smashbox waterproof eyeliner in Black Gold 8)Kat Von D Autograph pencil in Immortal Love 9)Posh flat top foundation brush

Bloglovin love

I I have a confession to make, I am hopelessly addicted to Bloglovin and the incredibly talented bloggers there. For instance,The Beauty Professor is smart, beautiful, has excellent reviews and beautiful swatches. She has inspired me in my makeup choices, skincare and learning to think outside the box, stretch the comfort zone.. I love her! Check her out! There is an endless amount to be learned by reading various others posts. Just a thought! Keeping it real, Gypsynurse Sherry

Aveeno Eczema Prize Pack!!!

I was totally thrilled to win the Aveeno Eczema Prize pack from the rafflecopter giveaway. During this time of the year our skin tends to get a little stressed due to the change from Texas heat to some cold spells that tend to make skin dry and itchy. My husband especially being a UPS driver has real trouble with his hands and feet especially. I am looking forward to seeing as how this will work this year for him. Shout out to for the great giveaway!
Look at what I found at CVS!!!! I am so excited and can't wait to tell you how awesome this stuff is! I have tried multiple BB's and CC's and this one far exceeded my expectations. Not only was it luminous without looking greasy but it was fresh and lasts an entire 12 hour shift! There are multiple ways to get coupons online, especially from the Ponds FB page. Go out there and give it a whirl, I promise you won't be disappointed. Leave your comments below and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! Gypsynurse Sherry

Dove Ambassador Program

Sample sent by company:I was very excited to receive the Dove Ambassador Program and Dove Clear Tone Anti-Perspirant to try and then to let all my friends and family know how it works. I just received this and will give it a very thorough try prior to letting everyone know what my thoughts are on this product. It seems that I am very aware of what I wear on my face and put on my hair, yet I seem to forget about other areas of my body. So after reading about this, I promptly was happy to be a part of something new. Stay tuned for the coming review!!!
