sad week + MiniLuxe MiniCure nail color

 Hello there!

I have been extremely absent from the blogging world. I know. This week was one of the hardest for me. My best friend, and blog partner in crime (my photographer) was in a serious medical condition. He was in coma for most of the week and is finally doing better now.

I was told by the doctors that his condition was so critical that he could die, so you could have imagined my reaction and mix of emotions. Now, he's safe and sound and I can keep on going with my normal life, like nothing happened. I am very happy I get to keep my friend! I jut took this opportunity as a reality check, to remember to appreciate the people around me and let them know how much I care. I love him so much.

We keep forgetting how short life is and sometimes waste our time on irrelevant issues. So, whenever you leave someone, stop and think if that would really be the last memory you would like to have with that person.

This post is getting a little sad. So, moving on... as most of you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you saw these cute nail-polishes by MiniLuxe, my favorite nail salon here in Boston! The MiniCure (the pale pink color) was designed to support the Ellie Fund Do Good Campaign. All the net proceeds from this color will go towards the campaign's efforts to battle breast cancer.



The dark red nail color is called LUXE Lynnfield. It is a fall color they came up with to celebrate the addition of their 8th location! MiniLuxe will be opening in Lynnfield, this month too! 

So, if you are in the Boston area, definitely stop by MiniLuxe and buy a MiniCure nail color to support the Ellie Fund, or check out their new Lynnfield location!

Love you guys and thank you for being so patient <3

  3. Aww...I'm so sorry about your friend! I'm glad he's better! But I'll bet that was a terrifying experience. I'm sure he felt a lot better knowing he had you by his side.

    I like your nails, btw! Makes me wish I lived in that area ;)

  18. When I read about your friend I had tears in my eyes... I know exactly how you feel because my dad passed away about a month ago and it came out of nowhere... There is no second chance for us and my life won't go back to normal ever again... I still don't realize what happened and I think it will take me some time to understand but what I know is that we should appreciate not just the people in our life but life itself. We should never take it for granted cause like you said life is shorter than we like to think it is...

    Anyways... I'm so happy your friend is ok now!

    And I love your nails and your rings :)

  52. Hi there! First of all, thank u for following me on Bloglovin. I really appreciate it and I am following you now as well. Second of all, I really love your blog. I'm sorry about your best friend but I am so happy he is doing better now :) I was really touched by one of your quotes in this blog post about stopping and thinking if that is really the last memory I would like to have with that person. That really made me think a lot because sometimes we don't get to say the things we want to say to somebody.

    On that note, I hope to read more posts from u soon!
