Road to Polish Con Week 7; Alter Ego Does the Ducky Derby

Good morning friends!  Summer is winding down and I has a sad.  I'm sad to not be able to head off to do fun things during the day with my kids, to get back to the grind of homework and busy after school schedules.  But I'm also looking forward to having a routine and getting into the holiday season.  It also means there's another Polish Con in the near future!  This one will be held in Chicago on 9/23 if you hadn't heard about it yet (not sure if tickets are sold out or not so you'll have to check that out).  Right now they are going through the Road To Polish Con series, polishes by makers that will be at the event, that will be available online for those who can't make it to the event.   Pretty cool way to make everyone feel included.  They're currently on week 7 and the polishes are only available for 1 week so you have until 8/19 to get this one.  The polish I'm sharing with you today is created by Alter Ego and is called Does the Ducky Derby and you can purchase it for $10.  It's pretty fabulous and unique so let's jump in to the spot and check it out.  Oh I should also mention that Cynthia is including a little cardboard paper with one of her available scents on it in her packages.  I received a coffee scent and found it amazing!  But for those with sensitive noses, you may want to open the package in a well ventilated area or let it air out a bit before opening.  Ok...let's go!

Born Pretty Store Shining Diamond Stamping Plate

Good evening beauties!  I have a few posts that I've been sitting on for a while so I need to get them shared.  Today has been an email sending, Internet browsing, bill paying, but parked on the couch, mindless tv on all day kind of day.  I literally need 1 day a week like this because I'm always so tired from soccer, running, taking the kids places, taxi-moming, cleaning.  While I wait for the husband to get home so we can have dinner I decided to continue the couch potato productivity.  I've got some pretty diamond stamping to share with you!  This is the shining diamond design image plate, which for some reason I can't find on the site.  But I do see another plate with similar images.  Anywho, you can pick up the other diamond plate HERE for $1.59.  Let's check out the pictures!

Different Dimension Wild Spirit Trio; Transition Collection

Good evening beauties!  I meant to post this earlier in the evening but we spent time hanging out in the backyard, enjoying time laughing with the kids and talking.  Then we moved to the front yard to admire our new landscaping.  As you can guess, time got away from me.  So this here's a post for you night owls.  Hopefully on the West Coast because it's super late over on the East Coast now.  So this is the new collection from Different Dimension.  It's a transitional collection, meant to help ease us into Fall.  I don't know what the rest of the country is like, but Fall here in California is hot.  I'm still in t-shirts and flip flops until Halloween!  The Wild Spirit Trio are perfect colors for this time of year...end of Summer, not really wanting to wear neons, but not cool enough for dark and vampy shades yet either.  The Wild Spirit Trio will be available on 8/12 at 9am EST.  The polishes will be $12 each.  Alrighty then, let's jump in and check them out!

ellagee; Group RAOK Another Little Piece of My Heart

Afternoon dears!  The weather played a trick on eye today.  It was murky out until just now (12pm) and now I'm dying from wearing too much clothing.  Hey now!  It's not like I'm naked, but I'm wearing a t-shirt instead of a tank top and UGH, what was I thinking?!  Anyways, I'm sitting at the pool watching my kids swim, and then we're headed to the fair to check it out.  So my fat will be crying today.  But today I was popping in with a shorty post for you.  ellagee Another Little Piece of My Heart was originally created as a RAOK polish.  Everyone loved it so much it became a group custom.  And now you can purchase it for yourself, if you're a member of the group!  This is a true beauty and you'll be happy to snag one for yourself.  Another Little Piece of My Heart is $12.  Let's jump in and check out the pics.

Fit Snack Box: July 2017

Good afternoon all!  Hope your week is going well.  My summer is full of pool days, swimming, water slides, beach days, fairs, and yet I still have all my taxi mom duties and play dates on my calendar.  I've been busy if you can 't tell!  But busy keeps me happy and sane, plus at least I'm not in the house cleaning.  Today I'm happy to share my post with you because I always have rave reviews for the snacks I receive from the Fit Snack box.   The July box is no different except for the fact that it was absolutely JAM-PACKED with delicious snacks!  I had fun with this box and got 2 of my kids to taste test things with me, Noah, my totally non-picky 11 year old and Naomi, my slightly picky, overly dramatic 5 year old.  I'll be sharing their thoughts too.  Don't forget you can save $3 off your subscription purchase with my link HERE.  Ok, let's jump in and see the contents of this box.
