Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

This weekend I’ve let my hair down, donned on a full face of makeup (eyelash extensions included), for a night out with the girls. I can’t even remember the last time this happened… meal, drinks, dancing, giggles, gossip, cocktails… you know the usual shenanigans. After a pretty rough few weeks this is just what the doctor ordered – well, he’d probably advise against it in my current condition but I’m pretending otherwise. Sometimes when we hit a stressful patch in our lives the best thing for getting out of the rut is to at least make an effort to get back on the bandwagon & start living. I’ve moped around too much & with the great friends (and sister) that I’m blessed with a night out is always a guaranteed cheer-me-up. Needless to say I’ll probably feel a little worse for wear over the next few days but it’s a small price to pay for a few hours with my squad!

So for those of you, who like me, are taking it easy this fine Sunday then why not curl up and check out what’s been happening here on Confetti & Curves this week!

  2. I hope you had a good night out Karen 😊 I loved your nail art video – I really want to try that set. At the moment I’ve been chewing my nails in my sleep (not entirely sure why, could be a side effect of the meds I’m on) so my nails are not in nail art condition πŸ˜•. My weekly round-up is over here xxx

    • Oh gosh, that’s a strange one – chewing nails in sleep. Sounds like anxiety to me Ems. A year ago I was waking up every morning with horrendous headaches that were concerning the docs (again my life is just one medical drama lol lol) anyways, went for scans etc and they just couldn’t for the life understand what was going on! In the interim I went onto a drug for GAD, after about 6 weeks on it my headaches suddenly stopped… turns out I was clenching my teeth really badly during the night and giving myself a headache due to anxiety. Bizarre eh? Maybe you could wear a wee set of mittens to bed?! hehe Seriously though that’s no fun for you or your nails Ems 😦 What a side effect!!!
      Hoping you had a good weekend & can’t wait to pop over and catch up with this weeks happenings πŸ™‚ XXXXXX

      • Yeah it could be anxiety. I am on anti-anxiety meds and the nail biting only started once I was on them for around 6 weeks so I think it’s a side effect 😞 I often wake up with a headache too but I’m not sure if I am clenching my teeth. Hope you have a good rest of your Sunday. Take care xxx

      • Sounds awful 😦 poor you! Well, definitely something to highlight to the docs, with any luck it just might settle down – keeping hopeful! It’s definitely a unique one though! XXXXX
