I used to be very into my personal style. I spent time planning my outfits, fixing my hair and doing my make-up before work every day and had a lot of fun with all of it. As with so many other areas of my life, this attention to my appearance quickly took a back seat when my migraines became so much worse.
Even simple things like showering and brushing my teeth take a lot of energy out of me. It is very, very rare that I take the time to put on make-up or do more than run a comb through my hair. I used to get fairly regular pedicures, but they aren't in the budget any more, nor do I have the energy to do my own.
For whatever reason, though, last night I felt inspired to paint my nails. It is such a simple thing to do and took me no more than 15 minutes. But it feels great.
