Tonight I went over to my local Women's Shelter and was there for about four hours. I met a lot of lovely ladies tonight and had the pleasure of doing manicure for six of them. I'm a little tired but I'm very happy I was able to brighten up these ladies evenings. One of the Ladies is going to three job interviews tomorrow and she thanked me for giving her the extra confidence. Just hearing little things like that makes this all worth while. I look forward to doing more manicures for these ladies.
Today I also filled out a volunteer application for my local hospital. I really have my fingers crossed, hoping I can go spread some cheer there. My younger brother had Cancer when he was in his teens (he's fine now in remission) and at first I thought it might be too difficult to go volunteer at a children's oncology center but I've gotten over it. The other day I happened to come across the instagram of a younger teen who recently passed away after a hard battle with cancer, it really pulled at my heart strings seeing her life through her instagram pictures. There were even some nail pictures and of polish. I did not know her or her whole story but she made me realize it was important for me to volunteer more of my time. Please send some good vibes my way so all this works out!!
Back to tonight, Flowers were super popular!! Before I came I got my order of Pretty Serious Polishes and I had them in my purse and after talking with one lady she told me her favorite color was blue so i just had to pull out BSOD, it's so pretty she couldn't resist it. I really enjoyed telling them the stories behind some of the polishes. I mean how cool is it that this one lady was super excited that the polish on her nails came from Australia!! Overall I had a blast. It was fun talking polish with these ladies and sharing my passion with them.
