BCA mani with Incoco

just a quick blog to let y'all see the cute mani I did using Incoco's special Breast Cancer Awareness set. I actually did this twice because I really screwed up the first time.... I was much happier with the 2nd time! It really doesn't take long to do my nails with Incoco! I just have to stop being inpatient and be more careful when cleaning the edges.

So check out after the jump for the pictures and come back for my b-day mani I'm doing for tomorrow!

Zoya Buy 3 get 3 Surprise Deal Part 1 of 2

The Buy 3 Part :)

Zoya had a deal back in February where you buy 3 colors and you get 3 minis but you have no idea what you are getting until they shipped.  So I bought Prim, Emilia, and Haven! OMG I love the colors and will be showing you them after the jump. I will be showing the other 3 colors next week in a separate post.

I want to say I know a lot of you have missed my posts and I'm sorry. I never knew when I walked into the dr.'s office on 12/30/2013 what I was in for. They told me that had I waited 3 more days I would have been dead. Literally. I had blood clots filling both lungs, one in my right atrium, and one 13 cm one in my lower vena cava vein along my belly. I stayed in one hospital a little over a week before they had a bed for me at UNC where they transferred me to do surgical procedures to take care of the clot in my belly as apparently if I moved it could have killed me. They didn't want me out of bed or ANYTHING! 

I ended up staying in the hospital a total of 20 days. I had to let go of my job with the census bureau because I was told it was work and die or live. My final diagnosis is right side heart failure and I have to have oxygen with me 24/7. This made me fall behind on my reviews and I lost my spot with Zoya because of it. 

I have been doing a lot of work over the last year to get stronger and not rely on the oxygen etc. and I am hoping to prove to Zoya over the next month that I deserve back on their media list because I'd been on it for years and was one of the very few that reviewed every single color in every single collection they sent me compared to a lot of people who only picked one or two etc. 

I am planning to swatch every single bottle I have left to swatch that I haven't swatched that they have sent me. I still have them set aside and will be doing them as soon as these two set of 3 are done. I wanted to do more recent colors first as I did last year prior to being cut without being notified. 

While I'm still sick, I'm stronger and better and back to doing what I was before. So, if you want to see me doing Zoya reviews again, let them know! tweet them, comment on this one or any posts after this one I do. Thanks guys!

Now on to the Gorgeous pictures and thoughts!

My Madison Reed Encounter!

So a few weeks ago I got an e-mail from Madison Reed which is a hair color company based online. You can find them here! They were looking for some bloggers to blog on their thoughts on what their hair says about them. You know, kinda like the old saying blondes have more fun?

I thought it was interesting and went and checked the site out. I'd actually been wanting to possibly color my hair for a while just wasn't sure what I wanted to do. When I went to their site, you have the ability to chat with a colorist or do this really great quiz called the color advisor which you can find here. So I did the color advisor and picked out a color called Palermo Black. 

(BTW- if you click on the Madison Reed button over in the right column, you get $15 towards your first box!)

check after the jump for the rest of the story and the pictures!

I've been awarded a Versatile Blogger Award!

I'm very late at doing this and won't be exactly following the rules but I'm very appreciative and feel honored that Posh Nail Art awarded this to me!

The rules are:

1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new (I fudged on this due to when I was nominated and when I found it etc....they were when this started and are still around some of them....) to blogging.

2. Let them know that you have nominated them.

3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.

4. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.

5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post.

So my 15 nominees are:

Canadian Nail Fanatic

My Life in Polish

The 7 Random Facts About Me:

1. I have traveled to almost all 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska!

2. I graduated high school and earned the HOPE scholarship for my 1st year of College in GA!

3. I have moved 10 times in my life

4. I've had over 30 surgeries/procedures since May 2000

5. December 30, 2013 I was told had I waited 3 more days to come into the Dr., I would have been dead due to both lungs being full of blood clots, 1 clot in my right atrium, and the most dangerous one was a 13cm clot in my lower right abdomen vena cava vein they had to use Thromboletics to break it up and clear it out.

6. I am very lucky! I told my husband to play a number on the roulette table and when he went to play it they closed the bets just as he got there so he was too late... my number was the winner! this happens all the time to me! the numbers just come to me. I also have premonition dreams. they freak me out when I am in the middle of actually going through it.

7. I am a very kind, caring, and giving person to a fault. This runs in y'all's favor! I do giveaways often! Stick around to find out now that I am restarting etc.

Thanks again to Posh Nail Art for the nomination way back in April 3, 2012! I caught it recently when going through to fix broken images etc.
