My Secret Santa

Hello everyone!!

I am pretty shocked that I am actually able to concentrate long enough already to snap a photo and to try and make this post! I hope it makes sense, fingers crossed!

So, I have been pretty sick lately, not like coughy-sneezy-etc (ok, a little bit!), but I have had an extreme headache since last Thursday evening. My mom and I finally called this 'Hospital Hotline' because we were all getting a bit worried. According to the nurse, I probably have H1N1, but if I came into the hospital, I would be sitting for hours, and if it wasn't exactly what I had, then I would either have it, or if I did have it, I'd be passing it around. AWESOME (not really).

I have been told to self-isolate.. So, other than being around my family, who has already been exposed, I am not welcome around other people. I have missed four days of work. My head hurts, my eyes cry on their own, my body feels like it got hit by a semi, etc. Blah. Although, for a 'flu', I don't mind this.. I am not a fan of the whole upchucking deal. I find that when the head pain starts to take over, I just close my eyes for a few, it wards off the pain for awhile. Or I have to use strong meds to stop the pain and put myself to sleep!

I have been extremely careful about everything I do though.. Sanitizing everything, frequent handwashing, having my own towel to dry my hands, etc. So far my family seems to be doing well, which is super good!

ANYWAYS! This isn't a post to just talk about what a disease-bag I am, it is to talk about MY SECRET SANTA.. From elfster of course :D

I awoke to find a package sitting on my dresser, looked at the sender, and was super excited!! I actually cracked a smile, it hurt, but was totally worth it!!



If I am not mistaken, she is Theresia of Amused Polish.. And what she sent is AMAZING!!

I received:

3 nail polish (Essence Colour & Go in 'Disco Glam'; S-he Stylezone in 'Aqua Shine'; and a franken called 'Grass Is Always Greener' which I am extremely excited about!!!);

An adorable lip blam from Claire's - the flavour/scent is Cookie Dough!

An Essence stamping kit! That is really awesome to me because it is something I have never heard about! AND! The plate is amazing! It has stars! I seriously almost screamed when I saw it - but decided not to, my brain is shatterable I believe.

Oh, and these candies.. That are fizzy and sour and wonderful!!

Thank you thank you thank you! I cannot wait to try out these gems!!!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
