Update to ... My Dog has Addison's Disease

Hey Guys!

Just wanted to give a brief update on my dog.  It has been over a week now and she is back to eating every meal.  I am so happy and relieved.  I know it will be a continuing battle but we will continue with it.  It seems to help to switch her food up.  The vet has recommended a food that is easy on her tummy so the switching up of food is not causing her any internal discomfort or diarrhea.  

She has her energy back and is her happy self.  Everyone notices how much better she is.

I hope you all have a great long weekend!  I'm off to a wedding reception tonight!

Until next time .....

My Dog has Addison's Disease

Hey Guys!

I hope all is going well with you.  Usually Saturday morning's I am out and about but not today.  My dog hasn't been feeling well this week and I took her to the vet yesterday morning for some blood work.

Two years ago she was diagnosed with Addison's disease.  The vet put her on medication and for almost two years she was doing fine.  She went into crises in November and spent a day at the vet on IV fluids.  She was dehydrated.  She recovered from that and seemed to be doing well.

The last couple months she would go through phases of not wanting to eat.  The vet did some more blood work and had to adjust her medication for the Addison's.  She was starting to go into crises again but I was able to recognize the signs and got it in time.  The adjustment in the medication helped her and she was doing really well.

The last week she hasn't been herself and not really eating.  So I took her in for blood work like I mentioned above.  This time it's her kidney's.  I forget exactly what the vet said it was but the levels of something in her kidney's is too high causing her to feel nauseated thus causing her not eating.  This weekend I have a different food for her to eat.  The vet is hoping that we can get her interested in food again and bring the levels down and get her hydrated again without having to give her more medication.  I'm happy to say that she ate her breakfast and dinner yesterday.  This morning she ate all her breakfast.  She is sleeping right now but that's okay.  I'm hoping that will help her too to get better.

I wanted to do a blog today just about what has been going on in my life.  That way you can see that I am a real person dealing with real problems.

Have a wonderful day!

Until next time ....

Love Your Lips by Carrie

Hey Guys!

I am excited to announce my new venture as a Distributor with SeneGence. 

I have always had issues with lip colour getting on my teeth.  I am so happy to have found Lipsense.  Did you know that it is available in 36 colours?  How can you choose just one?  So many looks can be created by layering different colours together and/or choosing one of the many glosses.  Above all it is fun to create something that is unique to you.

Did you know?
How cool is this?
Find me on Facebook by clicking here.  You can also search using #makeupnnailsgal or #loveyourlipsbycarrie.  I am on Instagram as well with both those hashtags.

My distributor number is 376519.  Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you!

Until next time ....

Jamberry - What is it?

Hey Guys!

I hope all is well with you!  As you know, I am in Direct Sales and am constantly learning!  I am always looking for ways to better myself so that I can be the best I can be for my customers.  I hope you have been enjoying the posts on my blog.  I am trying to help by telling you of my experiences in this business.  I hope that I have been able to help a little bit anyway.

Today I wanted to tell you a little bit about Jamberry and the products that I love!  But first I wanted to let you know that they have released a new line just in time for the Wonder Woman movie.  They are so cute!  Just look at them!!  They even have ones for your little girls!!

To get yours, please click here
First and foremost, the main product of Jamberry is the nail wraps.  Of course we offer many different products to care for your hands and feet.  We continue to add more products to our line.  

This company came about after an expensive day at the salon for the Jamberry founders.  They knew there had to be a more affordable way for them to do fabulous mani's and pedi's at home.  All this at salon quality.  This idea came about in the living room of the founders home.  From small beginnings to now over 300 designs plus many other fun products.  Not only have they considered adults but they have junior sizes for children.  They even have adult wraps that match junior sizes for Mommy and Me. (or grandma and me).  How cute is that?

These wraps are addictive (I can truthfully attest to that), but they have zero dry time, no harmful chemicals nor do they chip!  They will last up to 2 weeks on your finger nails and 4 weeks on your toes.  How cool is that?  The only problem with that is (and it is MINOR) I want to change the wraps before the two week mark! LOL.

The wraps are made in the USA, are vegan and gluten-free for those who require that!

The reason they last so long is because they are heat-activated and pressure-sealed.  They are simple to apply.  Of course with anything that you do for the first time, it will take some practice but I promise you, it is not hard!

Feeling creative?  We have a Nail Art Studio where you can design your own wraps!!!  Once approved, you can purchase your designs.

We also have lacquer and gel enamel.  The colour selection is amazing!  They co-ordinate with the colours in our wraps.  We are now 8 free!!!!  They do not contain harmful chemicals!

We have a complete line of hand and foot care.  

Check out my site here to see for yourself all the options available to you!

You can find me on YouTube, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #makeupnnailsgal.

Until next time .....

The Last Few Months

Hey Guys!

I haven't been around much the last month or so.  I've been on an emotional roller coaster.  Things are definitely better now.  Without going into too much detail, something happened that I wasn't expecting or prepared for.  It took me by surprise and set  me off on the roller coaster.  I was a wreck and what was worse is that the reason for it didn't even realize it.

I've finally managed to get over that hiccup in the road and things are going better.  I feel like myself again.

I started keeping a journal again.  I used to do this as a teenager but stopped.  I picked it up again.  It really helps to get everything out that needs to be out.  Yes I did turn to my friends for help as well but at times I felt it was hard to express myself.  In my journal writing, I felt free.  Writing my feelings and thoughts down really helped to get my emotions under check.

I haven't dealt with this much emotion in a long time.  
The surprise of it all took me off guard but the realization that I was the only one that was feeling anything about the situation helped me to see things in a new light.

I am happy that my friends were the sounding boards that I needed to get over this.  Prayer helped immensely as well.

Since I am the only one in the situation that anything changed for I will not go into detail.  Just know that I am sorry for being MIA.  I will try harder to be more present in the future.

I have recorded and uploaded some new unboxings on my YouTube channel for you to watch.  I hope you enjoy them!

Thanks for understanding!

Until next time ....

Businesses Closing and Dealing

Hey Guys!

It has been a rough week for some of our fellow Network Marketers!  One business I know of for sure has closed its doors and another is under a 5 month suspension.  My thoughts go out to all of you that have lost your source of income!

I wanted to post about this briefly because I have seen some post to Facebook trying to recruit these ones that have lost their businesses.  Please be kind to one another and don't go after them.  Give them the respect that you would want if you were in their shoes.

Let them deal with this shock.  For those in your network that you are friends with, provide a listening ear.  Please do not start looking at these people with dollar signs in your eyes!

If they are interested in what your company is, they will come to you.  Let them!  Should they choose not to continue with Network Marketing, let them!  Do not harass them!

The best advice I can give is to treat others as you wish to be treated!  This is the oldest and best advice that I know!

Until next time ....

Be Careful of Business of the Month

Hey Guys!

I just wanted to tell you a little bit about my experience with Business of the Month (BOM) groups on Facebook.  I recently participated in two.  

You need to be prepared to spend money every month until it is your turn.  Make sure you are fully aware of the requirements before joining in.  I did it only to see what would come of it.

The one group I was in nothing came of the connections I made.  One of the people in the group would not purchase from me so I did not purchase from her.  In this group, a couple of the businesses represented required an autoship or did not have many products in the dollar range agreed upon in the group.  

The second group I was in I made a couple great connections that ended up with some great referrals.

I was able to try some great companies products that I would not have tried before. Above all, I found that I did not make enough profit when it was my turn to average out what I spent.

I am not in any more of these groups and it may be a while or if at all, should I choose to participate in them in the future.

I hope my experience is helpful.

Be careful with these groups that it doesn't put you in a situation that you cannot afford.

Until next time ....


Update to ... My Dog has Addison's Disease

Hey Guys! Just wanted to give a brief update on my dog.  It has been over a week now and she is back to eating every meal.  I am so happy ...
