No giveaways?!

That's right...there are no giveaways ending today. Isn't that something. I have noticed that this month has been a bit slower than previous. There are significantly less ending on the 31st as there have been the last few months. I think for a while there were just so many, and now bloggers are kinda taking a break from hosting so many.

Anyways, I'm still trying to get caught up with blog posts. I have one swatch post that I need to edit pics for. I also have a couple ideas for nails this weekend, but we will see if I even have time to do them. I spent nearly three days planting a vegetable garden with my mom and daughter...well, birds came along and ate all 70 of my plants!! So, now I have to go buy more and do it all over again. Shouldn't take as long this time, but frustrating none the less. I've been given a few tips about keeping the birds away, so hopefully it doesn't happen again.

My fiance bought me a new laptop for graduating college. YAY! It's really nice, too. So, now I will have more opportunities to work on blogging and stuff since I won't be limited to the desktop computer. I'm so happy. I've also been thinking of upgrading to a better camera already. The one I have works well enough, but I can see in my head how I want my pictures to look, and I just don't think this camera quite has the capability. IDK, I also need to try some new things with lighting to see if that helps.

I should be getting my second Helmer this week because I have completely ran out of room in my first one. I have about 20 polishes sitting on top that will not fit and I have had to put polishes in drawers that they don't belong in because there is just no more room. I'm also getting some swatch sticks, so I will be able to organize my stash by color on the sticks. I think it's going to be quite the task for over 500 polishes, though. Yikes!

Just thought I would update a bit since there weren't any giveaways to post. Have a great day!!

  6. I post giveaways ending each day on my blog, too! I found a couple which ended yesterday. It has been awfully slow lately. Some days there seem to be a ton ending, other days just one or two.

    1. Yeah, usually the middle of the month and the end have lots ending. There will be random days that have lots, but in general, if it's not the 1st, 15th, or 31st, then there are only a few. I left you a message on your blog, we are from the same area :)
