There was a moment, in early 2013, when an obsession emerged. My husband may tell you that was when he ‘lost his wife to nails’.

In September of 2013 I decided to start the Serenity Nails blog. My aim with this was to document for myself the amazing polishes I came across, and then, I became excited to show them to others, in the hope of bringing a fresh, new look to the polishes.

For three years ‘Serenity Nails’ was a mecca of Australian Indie Polishes. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to show the best of the best!

As with life itself, now we’ve moved on, ‘Serenity Nails’ has evolved! Of course this has come with lots of therapist chats and confusion.

If you’d like clarification, the short story is, I changed Serenity Nails to CuredByChris during a time of deep anxiety and (I found out) depression. Looking back I know that my slow decline from polish blogging came about because of the depression I was in. I ‘quit’  blogging in September or October 2016. So why am I still here? After finally getting lots of treatment and working through some things, it was recommended to me to continue writing in some way. (You can read a little about that here)

You’ll find my nails by clicking on Prettiness in the top bar, but now you’ll also find loads of family orientated writings on here, with definite specialisation in certain areas. I have lots to share, and most likely, due to the evolving nature of my mind, more to come in the future.

Join me for fun anecdotes on my family life such as;
… My triumphs and fails with my ever-changing hobbies
… My triumphs and fails on parenting (hopefully less fails and more triumphs)
… Life with a transgender child
… How I’ve dealt with health issues with myself and my family
… Living on one income
and lots more…
…I ‘may’ even continue to show some of my recent purchases from polish world here and share my thought and pics on that.

If you have any questions or anything you’d like to see covered on here, or just want to say Hi, please don’t hesitate to contact me via my Contact page.

Due to the sensitive nature of some topics that will be on here, in the interest of privacy, I have changed the names of my children and husband. Please check out my post here to find out who is who!

Painting my nails ‘was’ just one of my peaceful moments. Writing is another.

I hope you’ll enjoy your time here as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
