[Random] Welcome and Polish Swap

First of all, I've spent the last week being a crappy blogger. I haven't looked at the blog, barely thought about the blog, haven't posted anything significant since over a week ago. Very unlike me. But you know what? I just didn't feel like it! I wasn't "too busy", I wasn't stumped for what to write...I just didn't feel like blogging. So, while I feel a little bad about abandoning my blog, especially with a whole bunch of new followers, I just kind of wanted the break. Rather ironic my blogging brain decided to take a vacation right about the time I got 50ish new followers thanks to my part in Shanna's giveaway.

So. In an attempt to turn new-followers-who-only-followed-because-Shanna-required-them-to-in-order-to-enter-the-giveaway-followers into followers-who-actually-want-to-follow-my-bloggy-blog-followers, I thought I'd take a cue from one of my favorite bloggers, Erin, and do a "what you should know" post. Ok, let's make that happen.

1. I love Christmas music. I am also a firm believer in the holidays being celebrated in proper time and order. This means I didn't listen to a single Christmas song until the day after Thanksgiving. Since then I've been listening to the 500+ of them I own on repeat. And nothing else. I think my hubby is sick of it already.

2. This is mainly a style blog. However, I'm not the most stylish. I try, but it's a trial of errors over here. I win some, I lose some, but hopefully I'm entertaining along the way.

3. I have a dog named Lexi and I'm obsessed with her. She randomly inserts herself into my pictures and I think it's hilarious.

4. I'm a bit shameless here on the blog. I broke my nose this past summer and shared this gorgeous picture. That is reason alone to stick around.

5. I have a husband. He's Indian with a British accent and sometimes I can't understand him. You'd think after 7 years together I'd have that all wrapped up.

6. I love high heels but they kill my feet. I will choose the pain of style over comfort solely because I feel so confident when I'm lifted up a few inches.

7. I am obsessed with cheese. I will put it on anything. And I will try any kind. Even the stinky kind. Doesn't make no mind to me. And if you tell me you don't like cheese, I'll look at you like you have 3 heads.

8. I'm a northerner at heart and Pittsburgh is the city that has my heart. If you have anything bad to say about Pittsburgh, keep it to yourself. I want nothing to do with that nonsense.

9. I'm on an exhibition dance team. Dancing is one of my favorite things in life. This is us:

10. I believe a friend and a glass of wine are all you need when you're feeling down.

Hopefully I've given you some kind of reason to stick around. I promise I'll be a better blogger after the last week, so don't give up on me so quick, yeah?

And now, the polish swap I've been meaning to write about for over a week now.

I participated in a polish swap that Carly at Lipgloss and Crayons put together. I am SO SLOW in blogging that I completely missed the link up. Anyway, I still thought I'd write about it.

I was partnered with Jessica over at The Only Ten I See. She sent me two lovely polishes - unfortunately, the US postal service was a little rough with her box and one of them was exploded upon arrival. :(

This is the polish that didn't make it:

Sally Hansen Greige Gardens

A bit of a bummer, because I really, really like this color!!!

The second polish, however, came out unscathed. Jessica's second pick was Fickle by SpaRitual:

I love the color on this one and am looking forward to trying it out this week.

Thanks so much to Jessica for picking out some awesome polishes for me!!!


  1. I am with you on the cheese...I LOVE it and could not live without it!

    Love how your polish is all iridescent!

    PS I won Shanna's giveaway and she sent you an email about it to get in touch with me :)

    The Tiny Heart

  2. Um, I LOVE you even more today because of this dance video. I LOVE to dance too! So fun watching go girl!!!!

  3. yeah jamie! you are such an amazing dancer!!!! love hearing you share a little more about yourself :)

(Please don't leave a comment that's only asking me to go to your blog - you might have a great blog but this type of comment is just bad manners.)
