China Glaze: Cirque du Soleil Collection (current lemmings)

This weekend, Sally Beauty is having a 2 for $11 sale on the new China Glaze Cirque du Soleil collection.
I am completely craving "Whirled Away" and "It's A Trap-eze".  How gorgeous are these??

Dino Lingo

I just watched this short video with my daughter. She is 14, almost 15 months old, and she was captivated by this! She knows a lot of animals, and likes to hear and see words and animals that she knows.  She actually fussed a little when it was over! I would definitely use this video series, in short amounts of time of course, to help her learn words.  Good stuff!

I love me some nail polish :)

Nail polish totally saved me from going crazy after my daughter was born. I didn't leave the house much, didn't have to get dressed up (like for work), barely put any makeup on. I just felt so blah. Then I stumbled across this website and was saved! I read this blog/looked at the wonderful pictures for almost 3 hours. Yay for 2 month old babies who sleep for that long at a stretch! I had always enjoyed painting my nails, and probably had about 30-40 nail polishes, but now it felt like I need to start collecting. At this point I have maybe 250 nail polishes.  I've definitely outgrown my snapware container, so either need to get a new one..or maybe invest in a Melmer! I've read that they can be very reasonably priced if purchased with a coupon, so I'll have to plan that out. I'm just not sure where I would put it in my house. I wish I had a whole nail polishing room, but oh well.

I also wish my nails/cuticles were nice enough to be able to post pics of different manis I do.  But even when I'm taking the very best care with them, they still are not nice looking. Oh well to that too!
Maybe I will be the very 1st nail blogger who will post swatches of just one finger!

First blog post!

Yesterday felt like the day before Christmas for me...I was chosen to receive a Cosmo VoxBox! I cannot say how super duper pooper scooper excited I was. I haven't received it in the mail yet, but when I do, I will be posting pics and reviews! How exciting!
