Today I felt like I just wanted to write a little to you guys , which means I'm gonna ramble on and on and blab.
Okay I have a few things I wanted you guys to know and the best way of doing that is to just come out and say it. So many positive things have happened in my life since starting my site and it's all thanks to the awesome readers that come and visit my site, leave comments and interact with me via twitter and facebook. Today I reached 400 followers and you have no idea how amazing that is for me. I truly started my blog thinking no one would see it. I thought it'd be a good nail journal to have for myself. Well it's been 8 months since I've started and I'm still posting. I'm surprised because i've never been able to stick to a journal for longer than a month.
In my personal life I tend to keep to myself I don't have a huge group of friends and it's mostly my husband and our families that i see and talk to. I have friends but I honestly don't talk to them much and don't get to see them that often while sometimes I wish that were different it is what it is. My whole addiction to nail polish started as a hobby for me because my husband worked 2nd shift and I had to find something to do to occupy my time. Now this hobby did get out of control once I felt like i had to buy every polish I came across and it did cause a few fights between me and the hubs (I'm sure a few of you can relate) because I was spending A Lot on umm nail polish. But we came to an understanding and now I don't constantly go looking for nail polish, hah I let the polish find me and it's better.
Through this hobby I found a lot of like minded people out there through the internet (you guys) and I've formed a lot of amazing friendships that mean a lot to me. With Life getting busy and things happening as fast as they do It's great to have this wonderful network of friends to fall back onto. Being a part of the Blogging community has also opened up another awesome door for me that I've never really thought I'd like. . . The world of Makeup. Now growing up I'd sometimes play with make up in the middle of the night and honestly I had no idea what I was doing and it showed! hah This well of information about make up and how to's is so overflowing with knowledge that it can be overwhelming but for the first time in my life I'm enjoying make up and I can't help but notice how great it makes me feel and look. hah so for me nail polish was a major gateway drug into the world of makeup and even though I've spent a lot of money on polishes, make up products I'd do it all again because it has been such a positive force for me.
I've been taking care of myself more because of this and sometimes when life is so busy we end up neglecting ourselves or we just give up but if you take the time to make yourself feel good it will rub off on others and there is no better feeling. On a side note Just this past week I found out that I have an under active thyroid and at first it seemed a bit scary but after talking it out with some of my "fellow polish addicts" I was able to put my mind at ease, turns out several of them have been in the same position and they were able to give me some good advise and tell me stories of their experience. It's nothing serious my thyroid just doesn't produce enough hormones so in turn it sorta screws with my metabolism. I haven't really noticed anything was different but I did feel a lot more lazy , so hopefully now that I'm taking medication for it it'll help me get back some energy! Which means I might not take a long to do some of my posts : )
Okay this is getting longer than I wanted it to but I just wanted to once again tell you how grateful I am to have access to all of you and all the love you guys bring to my world!
Because of this I'm gonna get to work on a giveaway. I'm hoping to have it go live sometime this weekend or by Monday. Hope you guys have a wonderful and safe Holiday Weekend!
