Day #4: I lost my contacts...

I have decided that my first week here on the blog will be a chance for my followers to get to know me. Last night I headed to the gym. I actually don't have a gym membership, I am using a free trial for the next week and a half. I forgot to bring my towel, so the sweat was just pouring down my face. I looked like a big hairy man. I have worked out at gyms for years now and many have commented how sweaty I am. This makes me very self-conscious, although I am still determined to get my full workout. I headed home after a good workout and took a shower. When I took out my contacts, the left one fell on the floor. I have TERRIBLE eyesight. So bad that everytime I get my eyes examined, the eye doctor says, "Have you ever thought about laser eye surgery?" Anyway, I spent 30 mins looking for that contact and I just never found it. AHH!!! I love wearing contacts. When I wear my glasses people say, "Wow, I didn't know you wore glasses. They are pretty thick." Thanks as if I didn't know. Then I just began thinking this morning, am I that vain. Is everything that we are as people about our appearance? I pride myself in creating a product that enhances a person's natural beauty, whatever that maybe.
I need to love and accept all that I am flaws and all. It's easy to look at magazines and movies and compare ourselves with others, but I think the most important thing to remember is that we are all created "fearfully and wonderfully". I am special, gorgeous and fabulous, glasses or not.


  1. Very entertaining and honest post! I loved it! Thanks for looking at my blog. ...... I'll follow you!

    BTW....I just picked up my first pair of bifocals this morning! (And I'm not THAT old)'s just that I couldn't see while beading....ha, ha!


  2. Great blog, love your honesty and just amazed at how many followers you've gained in such a short time. Goes to show you obviously got the right stuff!! Wish you continued success with your blog and for the sea of followers to grow and grow!! All The Best,


  3. I found my contact...I was on my maroon colored rug right in front of the sink...oh my goodness...I really couldn't see

  4. I enjoyed reading your post :)

    I know how you feel too. When I wear my glasses people say, "Hey you wear glasses..." and they look at me like I have three heads, hahaha.

    By the way, I always wear my glasses when I make jewelry. My vision is so bad that I am considering getting one of those headbands with a light like the kind that doctors & surgeons wear - just in case, I can't see my beads. (I think they sell them in Radio Shack, lol.)

  5. Hi! Nice blog!
    Take a lot of breaks when working, your eyes need them, and also: You are so beautiful!
