Beautiful New Necklace

Hi, I hope everyone is having a good Saturday. I am taking life and my health hour by hour right now and my Mom and I went to Julian, CA today for some distraction, which was nice. I am not always positive and smiling, but I am trying to be hopeful and appreciate the good as much as I can.

I got this beautiful new necklace that I wore today and I wanted to share it with you in case you want to shop it! You can also shop some of my skinny bracelets at my friend's store here!


SHOP HERE or click the links or photo above!

What did you do this weekend? 
Also, do you have any positive mantras to share for when you are going through a hard time?

XOXO,

She is (trying to be) Mighty

Hi friends. I hope you are well. I have missed you here.

I have been fighting my Autoimmune Encephalitis HARD lately. I had 3 mega steroid IVs at the hospital 3 days in a row, a pretty high dose of oral steroids, other immunosuppressing drugs, and now my IVIG weekly for 12 weeks, then every other week for 12 weeks, then back to monthly. I lost my mind again, I have been on my knees begging God not to let me live this nightmare over yet again. But, here I am. It has been 3 weeks since the hospital. I see small improvements. I know I do. I struggle minute to minute every day to think, and I feel anxious and foggy and like I am having seizures over and over in my head all day, but the nights are a little clearer. So, I wanted to do something I love and have not been able to do - just a frivolous, fun blog about fashion. I am sure my mom was even shocked when I asked her to take my picture today. She has been taking good care of me and loving me through the hard moments and hard days. Today I saw some friends for lunch, I took medicine to keep me calm, I fought the hard times, and here we are - I am getting through 1 more day. I hope tomorrow is better and the weeks keep looking up. I have to hold hope for that so I won't give up. If you are going through anything hard, just know we can do it together.


Details:
I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I hope I can do more soon. 
I miss you all and I miss living live happy and healthy the most. 
Thank you for everyone who checks on me and prays for me. 
I couldn't fight this without every single one of you, every day. 


XOXO,
Gretchen

August Empties

It is August! My health is not great right now, my Autoimmune Encephalopathy is flaring pretty bad. It is hard for me to focus on things, but I am trying so hard to keep busy and distracted. So, I had my box of empties in my bathroom and I wanted to post some things I used up in the last month! 

What did you use up last month? And what would you repurchase?

XOXO,

July Empties

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I have over 10 empties already since my last post for June - so I wanted to get my July Empties post for you guys today. Also, so I can take out the trash / recycling bin! haha.. I tried to link everything from Amazon if possible, because Prime Day is tomorrow and maybe some things will be on sale. You never know!


  1. Revlon 30 Second Eye Makeup Remover - Similar 
  2. Estee Lauder Advanced Time Zone Night
  3. Softsoap Fresh & Glow Shower Cream
  4. Gold Canyon Heritage Candle - Small Pomegranate - Smells SO good! 
  5. Loreal EverCreme Sulfate-Free Conditioner
  6. Black Opium Floral Shock Perfume Sample - I included this because I ended buying the full product and I am OBSESSED with this scent!
  7. Schwarzkopf Color Freeze Conditioner - also sulfate free. 
  8. Gold Canyon Heritage Candle - Large White Citrus - this is one of my FAV Gold Canyon scents. It is almost like a less strong version of that Volcano candle everyone loves at Anthro! 
  9. Rare Essence Meditation Travel Candle - My sister-in-law got me this for Christmas and I loved burning this when I meditated or took a bath. 
  10. Velvet Sugar Body Lotion from Bath & Body Works - I loved this travel size and then bought the full size for my bathroom. 
  11. Amika Touchable Hairspray - loved this sample and purchased the full size as well. 
  12. Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture with sunscreen - my Dermatologist recommends this as a lightweight daily moisturizer and I have loved it for a long time. You can also get a travel size in a tube.
What did you empty out in the last month? I notice I post my Estee Lauder creams and my Candles the most often! Till next time!.. 

XOXO,
GretchCannon
