As I approach my Big Day (Public Dissertation Defense) to complete my Doctor of Philosophy, my journey toward this ultimate goal may be drawing to a close while my next one toward my career advancement will begin.

However, my Ph.D. pursuit has helped me grow, not just¬†professionally, but also¬†personally, and most of all: spiritually. Furthermore, this undertaking couldn’t have been accomplished single-handedly:¬†GOD’s grace provided, JESUS’ example was all-sided, and the HOLY SPIRIT’s light guided, in addition to Team Dr. D, who had my back.¬†I forever will be grateful to the ‚ĆHeavenly HOLY TRINITY‚Ć and my positive¬†supporters here on Earth, who’ve rooted me on all the way, leading up to this Tuesday, December 8 ~ save-the-date!

My next anticipated title this Advent: Tita Elaine.

We expect my future niece or nephew to arrive around CHRISTmas time ~ the very 1st grandchild of my parents, who recently celebrated their ‚ô•wedding‚ô• anniversary. ¬†Yes, my family is very blessed. Regardless of these joyous times, I pray that we’ll always turn to the LORD, as we lead our lives here while preparing our eternal home in Heaven.

Sending peace and goodwill¬†to San Bernadino, CA, in the wake of this terrorist tragedy.¬†‚úĆ

Double D is for …

Dissertation Defense * Dr. Dispo * BiG Day: December 8 ~ Save the Date!

After I passed my presentation with full faculty on Veterans’ Day, I followed my Bestie¬†Evie‘s advice:

Take a Me QT Day.

While I still worked on revising my paper, I also set aside Spa Time this past weekend!

Facial Mask

Based on¬†Fleur De Force‘s¬†The Glam Guide, I used these ingredients for *acne ¬†and **dark spots:

Manicure

Then I treated myself to an at-home mani with the following gift sets:

and polished my finger nails with my own lacquers:

'Tis the Season for Red & Plaid

O‚ÄĘP‚ÄĘI Got the Blues for Red & Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener + Revlon Orchid & Silver Screen + Sally Hansen i ‚ô• Nail Art Striper in black

My top tip to achieving a lasting nail paint job:

Run freshly coated nails in cold water and dodge hot water!

  • Cold water seals in moisture, while hot water repels and drys it out
  • If I hand wash dishes, I wear special gloves
  • I also wear gloves during hands-on activity

Massage

My good †Christian† friend and fellow prayer warrior, Lisa, came through again, introducing me

Thank GOD for these special gifts of blessings and wonderful company!
