Hello, thanks for stopping by. I’m Nita, a 40 something year old spoonie with a fascination of makeup, all things nerdy, Disney, and Zombies.
I’ve decided to start a blog as a way of first healing my mind, being in pain every waking (and non waking) moment can kill one’s spirit.
Secondly I wanted a way to reach out to the world and hopefully shed light for those on the outside looking in on the various illnesses that make up the spoonie community.
Lastly I wanted a way to show other spoonies (and non spoonies), whatever age you are , that it’s ok to have bad days but there are blessings in everything we go through.
I also needed an outlet to explore my ever-growing obsession with makeup. Those closest to me kept telling me most of my life to go to school and do makeup professionally or teach seminars and while I do love makeup and do feel that I have a knack for it, I just don’t think I have the will to start all over in my early 40’s. That doesn’t mean I can’t still share my love of makeup with the world, from my comfy bed.
So this blog will be my quest to explore who I am, find a purpose late in the game, or shall I say re-purpose, and hopefully reach out to someone in need that may be struggling to cope with being sick or that may be struggling with understanding someone they know who has an invisible illness.
Over the course of this blog You’ll get to know more about me and more about the many illnesses that make up our spoonie family. I will also do reviews of all my passions… makeup , books, topics …ect. There maybe entries that are just simply me rambling about my illness (to help keep my mind clear and spirit from fading) and there may be posts that are just a quick hello, my goal is to hopefully have you get to know me and me you in return.
If I can reach just even 1 spoonie and make their day less lonely, hopeless, or horrid … well, than my job is done. If I can shed light for just 1 person who is scared and frustrated, and angry, and confused about a loved one who is suffering something they can’t understand … again , my job is done.
Lastly if I can spark an interest for someone just starting out with makeup and who doesn’t know where to start, than …. well you get the idea.
Well, that’s all for now, I just wanted to introduce myself. Thanks for taking a look inside this spoonie’s makeup bag and untill next time too all my spoonie darlings out there , life doesn’t have to be centered on just our illnesses, I hope that today find’s you in less pain and with more spoons, and remember spoonie darlings, ALWAYS reserve a spoon for a little lip gloss.
