Canine Diabetes is a Drag

Why is it that my poor pug Winston has to be like me in so many ways?  He could never see well, his ankles give out on him at random times, he was overweight, he snores, and now… he has canine diabetes.  Granted, he’s worse off than I am in the eyesight and diabetes departments – at least I can see with glasses and don’t have to take insulin… he’s pretty much totally blind now with his detached retinas and I have to give him an insulin shot once a day.  Le sigh…

Little Mermaid Stamped Manicure

If you know me at all, you know that my favorite animated Disney movie is The Little Mermaid.  I love it so much that I collect almost all things Ariel and Ursula.  I broke my usual rule of not buying Christmas things until after Thanksgiving at the end of August because Hallmark came out with a new The Little Mermaid ornament this year and it was the last one on the shelf!  I couldn’t very well risk NOT getting it!

TrishaLyn.com On the Top 100 Technology Blogs

I don’t know how it happened either, but yes, I’ve been included on a list of the top 100 technology blogs.  TrishaLyn.com is #73, which is respectable given that there are 27 other blogs I beat out.  The list looks like it was ordered by Alexa rank, which is cool.  I see some good blogs on there that I know and like, so I’m definitely in good company!

Selling My Photos on Fine Art America

A friend of mine called me an “accomplished photographer”.  Thanks Bill!  While I disagree, his kind words encouraged me to finally look into the realistic prospect of selling my photos as artwork.  He recommended I check out a site called Fine Art America over the more well-known Imagekind.  He recommended Fine Art America for their superb marketing materials, and I can see what he was talking about.

Exclusive 10% off at Born Pretty Store

I’m always looking for new sources of nail art supplies or polishes.  Despite reaching out to many nail polish brands, I still buy all of the polish you see me talk about myself, with a few exceptions.  Recently, I discovered the Born Pretty Store as a resource for very cheap nail art supplies.  I first learned about them on Instagram, but never really followed up to look at their site until I saw them post some new dolphin water decals and a coupon code in the caption.  Sold!

Finally Perfecting Salon Effects Application

Don’t you just hate it when something hailed as fool-proof is anything but?  I first tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips a couple of years ago when they were first introduced.  I needed a cute manicure quick while in Oregon for my brother-in-law’s wedding.  I went with the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Love Letter, and for my first application it wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t nearly as easy as they made themselves out to be, either.
