Polish your nails

Polish your nails


Everybody knows that well-groomed nails is an important part of elegant look. However not everybody knows that this can help to improve the skin condition if you have AD. How come?

Let me tell you about my experiment that I unconsciously started early last year. The weather was not encouraging that day and my mood was down mainly because of exacerbation of AD. I decided to lift my mood up by treating myself with professionally done manicure. I already felt better knowing that a specialist will take care of my hands for me and make them a bit more beautiful. I did not even have to explain my disease as my beautician accurately guessed my ailment. I felt ecstatic when I was choosing the color of my nails. I opted for a pink sand varnish that was discreet, classy, and universal. It turned to be a right choice as the final result was beyond my expectations. Finally I did not have to hide my hands behind my back or in the pockets. Few days later I noticed also a side effect of this treat. My skin started healing and it was not because I stopped scratching. The reason was that when I was scratching, I was not damaging my skin and this is because the gel nails are thicker and blunter than the natural ones hence it is impossible to injure yourself. This was one of the best gifts I have ever offered myself. I have not only had beautiful hands, but I also unintentionally found a way to help my skin get better. Since then I have been doing the professional manicure and pedicure on a regular basis (every 5-6 weeks) and I noticed a huge improvement on my skin. I scratched myself much less because I do not want to destroy well-done nails.

Another good news is that you can achieve a similar effect with just a professionally done manicure. When you see how beautiful hands you have, you will never want to ruin it by scratching.

Stylish come back to school

I’m back! First of all please accept my sincere apologies for silence through the last two weeks. It’s a bit busy as I started my specialised MBA, hence apart from full-time work, and 3-year-old, who suddenly became huge hugs’ lover, I have tons of studying. But I don’t complain; in fact my energy level has never been higher. Hm, what will I do with so much energy? Oh, I know! I am gonna use it (before it vanishes:))! I am starting from drafting my editorial plan so you won’t be left without the post ever again. I am also catching up with some reading. Through months if not years, I managed to gather a nice collection of books that I always wanted to read, but never have enough time to do this. Now, thanks to some travels linked to my MBA, there is a chance to sort this out. In fact there are some of books that became my life bibles and I am not afraid to recommend them. So if you want to read something but you do not know what to read, here are some positions worth of your time :

– “How to win friends and influence people” by Dale Carnegie

– “Career advice for ambitious women” by Mrs. Monneypenny

– “Switch” by Chip and Dan Heath

and something more relaxing:

– “Madame Chic” – by Jennifer L. Scott.

Enjoy your reading!
