I’m still sick with cold so I look and feel awful. Yesterday I stayed in my pjs all day. I’m taking dayquil, nyquil, etc decongestants and lots of orange juice and water. I feel awful. I tried to go to my friend’s Christmas brunch today. I showed up but felt so miserable that I left not too long after I arrived. I tried the cat trick of making myself look pretty so I’d feel better. (cat trick: cats groom themselves for many reasons, including to feel good. If they’re not grooming themselves, they’re not feeling well.) I really like these colors, I just need to perfect this look.

Sick again? Or is this the same bug?
I hope you’ll get well soon, it’s such a pain to be sick on Christmas.
Your look is gorgeous, as always. I recommend another step to the cat cure: gather all the pillows and blankies and have a nap buried in them. And then make someone else to get your food and moan if it doesn’t happen fast enough
My brother in law and husband have been cooking for me all weekend. I just don’t have much of an appetite, but I’ve been nibbling at the tasty stuff they’ve made.
I slept either in the bed or on the sofa most of the weekend.
Glad you have someone to take care of you!
I think I’m getting ill. My throat feels like I’ve swallowed acid and my eyes are getting sore to the light. Bugger. I ALWAYS get sick on Christmas…
BTW, I got my order from Lime Crime. Gorgeous colours, I’ve never seen anything like it! If you like purple (which I guess you do *lol*), try Empress… I did swatches today but I’m testing the colours in action tomorrow. If I’m not sick…
I hope you’re not getting ill Retkikatii!
I’d love to see your limecrime swatches
And yes, I LOOOOVE purple.
