Friday Fun ... Swaps Make Me Smile!

Hey Peeps! While I may have had a blah week, I appreciate the sweet comments on yesterday's post. I especially liked the encouraging hair comments ... it's a tough adjustment to go from having long hair for 8 years, to chopping 10 inches off on a whim. I will learn to embrace my new 'do and will definitely take up your suggestions of bobby pins and headbands! I'll have to hit up Target for some cute clips, too!
On to brighter things ...
I signed up to do this nail polish swap ... how great is the name?
I was partnered up with the sweet Suze from Straight On The Ground, who recently became a new momma to the cutest little baby boy! I was so excited to receive my little package of goodies from her in the mail ... this is what I opened up!
 A cute little greeting card, nail buffers that make my nails super smooth and shiny, and a wrapped-up bundle ... of not one or two, but FOUR new polishes!! And four polishes that I did not already have in my collection!! Yippee!!
Colors from left to right: L'Oreal Paparazzi Pleaser, Essie Chinchilly, Sinful Colors Dream On, and Sally Hansen Petal Pusher
My iPhone pics simply do not do these colors justice. The Paparazzi Pleaser is a pretty purple ... not quite a grape color, but a little darker. Chinchilly is a gray-ish color with hints of a brown undertone. Perfect for fall! Dream On is a hot little magenta color, not quite a neon though. More of a berry ... so pretty! And I was excited to see Petal Pusher because I do not have any nude polishes in my collection! This one is a super light pink. I promise to debut each color throughout the season with pics that show their true pigments!
A BIG THANK YOU to Suze for being such a great swap partner!

All of those shades are so pretty and those buffers are great when I'm taking a break from color! Chinchilly is one of my favorites! Great job, Suze!

A Fond Farewell ...

Wow! Is December already upon us? Good golly this year has flown right by! I have been a busy girl lately, hence the blog break. Unfortu...
