Hello again...

Hey beauties!

Well I did say that I would be back, right?  It took me a lot longer than a few weeks but I am back, at least to tell you some news.

The reason I've been gone has been this:!

I am currently 21 1/2 weeks pregnant with a baby girl.  I'm so happy, especially after what I had to go through last year with a miscarriage and stuff!

I haven't been feeling well, hence the reason behind lack of my posts.  Even now, in my second trimester, I am nauseous and dry-heaving or puking every morning, and I'm generally just tired.  We are also trying to get the nursery ready so I had to consolidate my office with my make-up room and I'm still trying to organize everything.

I'm not quite sure if I will go back to blogging...  I might just stick with Instagram although I've been lacking in that department as well...  I am going this year to Cosmoprof again though so I will probably post some on Instagram.  However, I'm not so sure how it will go once the baby gets here.  From what I've been reading, it seems like all I'll be doing is feed and change the baby and occasionally get some sleep...  how will I find time to paint my nails?? =)

It's been a wonderful ride with you guys... thank you so much for your readership, all the comments you left me, and generally for supporting me.  It's time to start a new chapter in my life..  Don't be a stranger to my Instagram account (@colorfulcrack) since I will most likely be still active there..  after all, it takes a lot less time just to snap a picture and post it without writing a whole post!

Love you guys...  Keep on painting =)

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Love

Hi beauties!

So I still have lobster on my mind...  isn't it crazy that I've been craving the stupid thing for 3 days now??  I almost went to Red Lobster by myself last night but I remembered just in time that it was first day of lent and the restaurant would probably have like a 2 hour wait...  I settled for a salad instead.  But I will get me some lobster soon!!!! =)

The Crumpet's challenge called for LOVE!!!   Do you all celebrate Valentine's Day?  I really don't, it's such a Hallmark holiday!  Although I did get engaged on Valentine's Day, so I can't knock it too much I guess lol =)

Anyway, check out my mani!  For my base I used Colors by Llarowe "Billy Jean".

Thirsty Thursdays: Champagne Supernova cocktail

Hi loves!

So my friend talked me into going to Red Lobster for dinner last night.  It didn't take much convincing since I love me some lobster!!  I'm such a dumbass though... instead of going for the whole lobster, instead I ordered 2 lobster tails.  Wrong choice!!  They were good but I'm still craving the whole thing!!  I'm working this weekend on Valentine's Day so maybe my hubby and I will go out again next week.  I can't wait!!

In the meanwhile, it's a weekly Life In Color! happy hour again!  The drink of the week is Supernova cocktail, inspired by Different Dimension "Supernova".  This polish also fulfills my ABC challenge letter D!
