What I Bought: Polish Pickup May '18, 1990's

Backstreet's Back, ALLRIGHT!  Haha, just kidding...but it's a song from the 90's and this post is all about the polishes I picked up from the 90's themed PPU in May.  I loved the month, it was probably my favorite.  It was a total throw back to my middle school/high school/early college years.  I knew the inspiration for every single item in the shop and wanted to buy them all, but settled for a select few.  You won't be able to find any of these unless you hunt them down in the PPU sales group, but the August PPU is just around the corner and from all the sneak peeks it's got to be a great month for shopping!  Okie dokie, lets jump on in and see the plethora of pictures I have of each polish!

Envy Lacquer + Never Enuff Polish; TIS San Francisco Duo, Boat Snack & Beyond the Reef

Morning dears!  Exciting game this morning!  Who are we rooting for, Croatia or France?  Truthfully neither are "MY" team so I am just enjoying the game. Anywho, looking through old polish I haven't swatched/shared with you and realized I didn't do anything from The Indie Shop that was in San Francisco last summer.  It was a really fun event, mermaid themed, my daughter enjoyed it as well.  I really hope they plan on coming back to the Bay Area soon!  So this was a duo available at the show, created by Envy Lacquer and Nvr Enuff, I think they actually came with a cute frosty blue shot glass but I don't remember where I put that.  They were inspired by the movie Moana.  Of course these aren't available now, but both shops have lots of gorgeous polish to pick from so head over to their sites to check them out.

Stella Chroma Hella Handmade Creations, July 2018 - Queens of Westeros, Dragon Queen

OMGeeee you guys!  I just got home from dinner and I am about to explode!  I just had the yummiest Indian food ever!  Lots of leftovers came home with me so I will be eating it again for lunch tomorrow.  So I'm currently resting and letting my full tummy rest, no better time to share a post with you!  Now I was quite un-queen like with the way I pigged out at dinner, but this polish is regal enough for the nails of Daenerys herself.  And thus we have the Dragon Queen, the next installment of the Stella Chroma Queens of Westeros collection.  This gorgeous polish will be available exclusively through the Hella Handmade Creations from 7/14-7/21 for $12, no cap.  Let's go ahead and jump in because I want to look at nail polish!

Fit Snack Box; March 2018

Howdy y'all!  I was at the pool today so i didn't get to watch the World Cup semi-finals for England v Croatia live.  I'm watching the replay now and have avoided Facebook and texts from friends.  I have no idea how this will play out but its a good game so far!  So while I watch this I'll leisurely type up a post for a past Fit Snack Box that was delivered when I was dying from morning sickness.  If you follow my blog at all you know by now, Fit Snack is a great subscription box full of healthy snack alternatives to what you typically find on your grocery store shelves.  The awesome thing is that now that I am familiar with so many brands in this fab box, I see so many of these products on the shelves that I never noticed before!  So don't be put off by thinking that you can only order them, lots are available at your local grocer.  If you want to give Fit Snack a try you can save 30% off your first box using my link HERE!  As usual, I have my 6 year old daughter, Naomi helping me out with the taste testing.  Let's jump in and check out the treats!

Lollipop Posse Lacquer; First Lines Collection

Good morning!  Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July and celebrated with loved ones.  I spent the morning at a local race (yes, I am still plugging along at 20 weeks pregnant), then went to San Francisco with the fam for fresh seafood lunch.  Low key evening playing with sparklers, bbq and s'mores.  All in all, it was a chill day and I really enjoyed it.  But today is back to the grind, camp and taking care of the house, chores AND the blog!  Actually that all may take a back seat because I am hungry and a bagel sounds great.  So let's make this quick!  Lollipop Posse Lacquer will be releasing the brand new First Lines Collection.  This collection was inspired by the first lines in favorite literature.  I love the idea behind the collection and the shades themselves are gorgeous and unique!  The First Lines Collection will be available for pre-order starting 7/6 at noon EDT through 7/31.  Remaining stock will be available on 8/1 (but do you really want to chance it?).  Individual shades will be $12, the collection will be $60 shipped (inside the US until 7/31).  Ok, I think that's all the info I need to provide so let's check out the pretty polish!

July '18 Polish Pickup; Fan Favorites

Evening beauties!  I have a fun post for you tonight.  MOAR of the Fan Favorites from the July PPU!  In case you are like what the what, the quick run down is that Polish Pickup is having a month of returning polishes from previous months.  These were polled in private groups and selected by the fans and now we get to rejoice that the pretty polishes we may have missed are back.  So I have 4 more to share with you, ones that caught my eye and I purchased when they wren originally released. I figured it might help you make buying decisions if I let you know how I liked them!  Like my Round Up post HERE, I will link you to each makers individual page where you will be able to purchase the polish.  So let's jump in!

Fit Snack Box; June 2018

Hullo everybody!  You know, I think I am really taking this "I'm pregnant, I don't want to do anything" to a new level.  Granted during the week I walk, run, go to the gym, but once the weekend hits I don't want to get out of pajamas or off my couch.  But I'm really not doing nothing, I tidy up, do laundry, and blog!  If you don't blog/review products you probably don't realize how much time actually goes in to each post.  There's pictures, testing, taking notes, editing, watermarking, preparing it all on the blog, emailing links to the company, then sharing it all over social media.  Phew!  Takes hours up on hours!  But when it's a Fit Snack box it feels like less work because I have fun tasting all the treats out with my kids.  Plus it gives me really great ideas of things I can get for lunch boxes and quick on-the-go snacks.  So that makes it worth it.  Today (tonight for you East Coasters) I have the June 2018 box to share with you. This box had a few repeat items I have tried before and lots of new things!  I do have new info to share with you though!  Instead of saving $3 off your first box you can now save 30% off (for first time box purchasers).  That's a great savings for a subscription box that was voted the Best Snack Box of 2018!  Use my link HERE to save and get healthy foods to nosh on.  Let's jump in and see what the June offerings were.
