Everything is better with Sparkles!

I was goofing around at Sephora yesterday and found a glorious package of "Boo Boo Bling".  They're these plastic jewels that are supposed to be placed overtop of bandaids to make bandaids a little less...bandaid like.  I'm not sure who would actually buy them.  (Obviously me!)  They remind me of the sparkly tattoos that I used to think was the coolest thing since sliced bread...when I was 13.

A lightbulb went off in my diabetic head.  I had to purchase them.  I felt the need to explain their intended use to the checkout lady and just got a strange and confused look.  I guess I thought I was being clever by using them to decorate some mechanical body parts as opposed to real body parts.  

So, I decided to bedazzle my diabetes gadgetry, because everything is better with sparkles.

  2. This is adorable and creative! Way to make it fun!

    I am working with a well known brand to build a vibrant community to help spread the word about diabetes and a healthy lifestyle. It would be great if you could join our community to help educate, inform and converse with those living with Diabetes.

  4. Hey! I just found your blog, and I think it's so cool! I love how you decorated your meter! I did the same thing with duct tape for my meter. I just made a blog, and maybe you could check it out? I'm just trying to get the word out. I could really use some tips. Thanks!
