What?


Sometimes when one's been gone for so long it's hard to figure out how what to say and how to start. So I'll just talk. It's been a little over 3 months since I've updated this blog. If we're being honest this past year I haven't been very present over here at ManicureAddict.com. Even with all that in play I've still been around and active in other social media spots. I hope that has been enough for those of you who used to stop by everyday. I didn't really have anything to say but I figured I'd break my 3 month posting silence and say that I'm still around and that I'm stunned to see that even without any constant posting there's still people stopping by. So Thanks to those who stop by from time to time. I also was sad that I totally missed my 3rd blog anniversary. I feel like such a bad blog parent!! I haven't totally decided to stop blogging, I know it may seem like that but I do have plans to one day pick it back up. But I'll be honest with you guys it probably won't be till after I finally get to move into the house. The Hubs and me have been renovating for what seems like years... haha well 2 years in February. Still no clue when that's happening as I pretty much forced Dave to take on remodeling two bathrooms.

So if you've been following me on instagram you maybe aware that I decided to purge my massive collection and I'm in the process of putting up a giant amount of polishes for sale. After completely filling up 5 helmers full of polish and needing to go buy a 6th one I decided that instead of going to buy yet another helmer I was going to dramatically decrease my collection and in the process make back some money so that I can pay down some of the debt I've obtained while fixing up the house. I think it hit me when I realized I rather have a kickass bathroom than helmers full of polish I won't' ever use up. So far I've pinned close to 920 polishes which is pretty much 2 full helmers. I still have a little more than one helmer to go through and post before I open the flood gates and start sending the polishes to new homes. Sometimes it's good to let go and open up yourself to new beginnings and the idea of cutting down the collection to 2 helmers while it seemed scary at first it feels good to know that when I do move into the new house my collection won't be hard to move. Plus after using Pinterest to pin all the polishes I have for sale I can't wait to be able to pin my actual collection and for once keep track of the polishes I do own. I have to admit though pinning polishes has been so difficult because after looking up swatches of polishes I have for sale I keep wanting to keep them, you know mentally buy them back. But my mind is made up and it's just something that has to be done. For so long I used my collection as a safety blanket. I gave it power and used it as a tool to help define myself. Well we all know I'm a super rad person and if I have 5,000 or 500 polishes my cool points are still the same. Okay so when I do finally get finished pinning all the polishes I'll come back over here and post about it and I'll have to write a whole rules and regulations post. haha riddle me this and riddle me that if you can't answer my riddle you can't buy my polishes... okay see I'm starting to ramble and all sense has flown out of the window!!! So I only stopped by today because I'm supposed to be cleaning because I think we have family coming over. yikes!!! I'm thankful for all the wonderful people that have taken the time to read my thoughts and I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!!! 

In case any of you are wanting to check my progress on my Pinterest Massive polish purge here's a link. Keep in mind I'm not selling anything just yet :) www.pinterest.com/polishsale
