Where have I been..and what happened to all the pics?

You may have noticed I've been completely MIA for a few months. So what happened?

Well, I got a new tablet (Samsung Note. it's awesome) but Google+ (which is not awesome) downloaded all my photos from Blogger onto the tablet. Needless to say, that ate up every bit of memory on my brand new tablet! To free up some space, I deleted the photos....
Cue depressing music..

They also got deleted from my Blogger account. I was so sad and upset that I couldn't even bear to look at my blog anymore. Almost a year of posts and all the pics were gone gone gone. It's taken some time to get over it. I even thought I'd give up blogging for good.

But I miss it! I enjoyed posting!

So I have decided to start a new blog. Fresh and new! This one just makes me sad with all the little blank boxes where pictures of mani's used to be.

My new blog address is
I hope this new name and address will suit me and my blog style a little better than this one did. I hope to see you over there!

Color Club Insta-This Swatch

I received this cute little bottle in my September 2012 Birchbox. This is a great, bold blue and went on easily with two coats.

September 2012 MyGlam Bag

Another great bag from MyGlam! I am very happy with the September bag. I think that they are going to eventually give everyone the entire Andrea's Choice Circus Collection. :)

Here's what I got:

Soho Smudge Brush. I love that MyGlam sends items that you can use forever! I loved their previous brush collection so I hope there's more where this came from.

Andrea's Choice Circus in Tightrope.

Mirabella eyeshadow. This packaging is a little weird. Once you take it out of the cardboard, it's just the pressed powder in a tin. No cover or anything. Oh well!

Jame lipgloss. This stuff smells fantastic!

 Moni Repairing Split Ends. This product says you can use it on wet or dry hair which I think is great!
I am in love with MyGlam and it's absolutely my favorite subscription service!

Birchbox September 2012

I received my September 2012 Birchbox in the mail today. It felt like it took forever to arrive! This month's box is a lot better than last month's...but that was not a high bar. In general, I'm happy with this month's box. My favorite thing is the nail polish, of course.:)

Here's what I received:

Dr. Jart + Beauty Balm


LiQWd Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

LiQWd Professional Volumizing Catalyst

Color Club Custom Polish in Insta-This

Twist Band Hair Tie

Nothing that totally blows my mind but all products that I'll try and see what I think.
Thanks for reading!

Little Black Bag September 2012

While I was loading the pics into Blogger for this post,I realized that I forgot to take a picture of all my stuff together! ACK! And now it's all put away. :( So you will just have to use your imagination!

I received a total of 9 items plus the "bonus" item from Benefit.
Here we go!

First, Olivia and Joy Buckled Satchel in black. This is a big, roomy bag. I just transferred all my stuff from my other purse and it fits nicely with lots of room to spare. This is what I opened my bag with this month.

Ball of fame picture frame. This feels cheap and was a last minute trade. I had two smaller items that I hated so I traded up for this. Now I just need to find some pictures to go in it!

Robert Rose Silver Hoop Earrings with discs. These are really cute and were actually some of the cheaper items in the site! Is it weird that I usually like the cheaper items better?

Benefit "That Gal" face primer. This was the bonus item this month. I love the brand and I couldn't decide if I wanted to try something new or if I wanted to have a small size of a product I already use and love. I decided to go with something new. Can't wait to try this primer tomorrow!

Spring Street Black and White Flower Earrings. These are much larger than I thought they would be. See how they make my hand look like a 5 year old's? 

Cargo blu-ray Lip Gloss in Panama. I was obsessing over this gloss. I don't know why. I got it stuck in my head and just had to have it. It retails at about $22 and I traded down from a $35 item to get it! I guess a girl wants what a girl wants. :) The good news is...I LOVE IT. The color is perfect for me! Also, it smells like peppermint!

Surprise bonus! A Benefit "Spy Gal" comic book. Ha! Funny!

Robert Rose wired cuff. This is actually smaller than I thought it would be...and I rarely say that about LBB! It barely fits my wrist. :( I tried bending it out but it doesn't really work. Oh well! Can't win 'em all!

Lydell NYC necklace. I love this. It will look great with the collared shirts I wear to work. It's nice and long and super cute.

Kenneth Cole Blue Cherry Drop Earrings. Not a fan of these. The Kenneth Cole stuff is nearly impossible to trade. I was offering crazy trades at the end to try and dump these, but I couldn't! Nobody wants the Kenneth Cole stuff! At first I thought it was weird but now that  I see these in person, I know it's because they're ugly and cheap looking!

Kenneth Cole Pull through earrings. These ones were also impossible to get rid of. These are keep-able though. I just wish they weren't so gigantic. 

And that's all! I have been LOVING LBB. It's seriously addicting. I may have to exhibit some self control and skip October though...just to save a little money!

Thanks for reading!

Konad Lacy French Tips

For this fun, lacy, french manicure I used Julep Jennifer and Konad Special White. This pattern is on Bundle Monster plate 18.

I'll be going out of town starting tomorrow so there won't be any posts for a few days. I'm going to visit my family in another state. Yay! Super excited!!
Have a great weekend. :)

LA Colors Unnamed Teal

This is another one from the pack of unnamed LA Colors I bought a few weeks ago. I liked how this one turned out. It's a nice rich teal.
