Well hello again...

Hello friends!

Its been quite sometime since I've written anything here. I'm feeling quite chatty and weepy I figured I'd explain my absence here. It's been 9 months since I've posted a youtube video and I've been very inconsistent with my posts online. I love the beauty community on youtube, and I've always enjoyed sharing tutorials and reviews online. I plan on providing content this month but first I wanted to share a little about why I was gone for so long.

January 2016 our dog Cindy fell very ill. She stopped eating and was vomiting constantly. We took her to our vet and they basically told us she may have a week or so left in her life. She was then diagnosed with canine kidney disease. She spent a week at the emergency hospital to get her stabilized. Once we were able to take her home, we were given instructions to give her subcutaneous fluids daily to help her kidneys, some drugs and a new prescription diet.

She fought bravely. I was quite emotional during the length of her disease. Giving her subcutaneous daily gave me anxiety and I wanted to weep every time I had to poke that needle into her skin. My husband and I became experts after about a month or so into the disease. We had to make sure to keep to a schedule and any free time I got, I spent researching about the disease and ways to help prolong her life.

During the length of her disease, I spent a lot of time by her side. I've always loved to read but during her treatments I pretty much only had time to read by her side and not much of anything else. I felt like I couldn't "fake" a happy face while filming a video so I couldn't share much because there was a lot of ups and downs during that time. With that said, I read 193 books in 2016.
