"I'm going to be a widow"

After a long shift at work, I usually leave all the stress and emotions as soon as I walk out the front door. However, today, I found it quite difficult to do so. I could not stop thinking of the hour I spent crying with a family I just met. The patient just told his wife and three children that he was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 months to live. This was the first time I experienced the shock a family encounters the first time hearing such tragic news. The cries and screams seemed louder than they actually were. The phrase "I'm going to be a widow" still echo in my head. What do I say to this family? I had nothing to say. All I could do was lend my shoulder, a comforting hand, listened and answered any questions they had. After such an experience, does one get better at comforting someone on such issues? or will one slowly get desensitized to life and death as many have working in a hospital? There is really no point to this post, I just wanted to share my experience at work today. 

Hope you had a better day than me.

Look What I Found!

I was at Walmart last night to pick up a new shovel for my garden and look what I found!! Sally Hansen has a new collection out - "Crackle" Overcoat! It retails for $6 each and comes in 8 different colors. I picked up the Silver and Purple as my "Silver Shatter" from OPI is totally ruined after using it once :(!
Are you interested in Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat? Have you tried it yet?

I haven't bought myself a new bag this year since there hasn't been anything that has caught my eye yet. But then again I wasn't craving for anything till now.... 
I was checking out and found oh soo many bags that I would love to have in my collection! 
Check out the PS1 in these amazing colors!! 

or how about this Kate Sapde Essex Scout in Carribean Blue 

Mulberry Oversized Alexa Bright Cabbage Soft Buffalo

Juicy Couture Black Star Satchel 

I want them all! :D! But probably my first choice out of all of these would be the PS1 in either Violet or Red! 

What about you?? 

Miss Marc

I paired these super cute Marc by Marc Jacob Miss Marc flats with an over sized black pocket T from Joe Fresh, Forever 21 black skinny jeans, an old leather jacket from Hong Kong, a Return to Tiffany heart pendant and my gray Miu Miu bow satchel.

Hope you like!

Mini Revlon Nail Lacquer

I found these mini Relvon nail enamel sets at Walmart for about $5 per 3 mini bottles.
I went to Walmart hunting for a light baby blue nail polish and found this! I have been obsessed with bright summer colors and these satisfy my cravings!
Each mini bottle is 0.25 fl ox/.75ml which is about half the regular bottles. Not a bad price considering a regular sized bottle costs about $4.

What do you think of these?
