Good morning, blog friends!
You may have noticed a little something new around here…perhaps a few little aesthetic changes…
You’re probably asking yourself,
Hey Chrissy, did you change your hair?
Well, now that you mention it, I did visit Catelyn, my friendly local stylist, for a refresh last weekend…but that’s probably not what you meant.
Hey Chrissy, did you change your nails?
Have I mentioned my Julep obsession?
In July, I signed up for a free Julep maven box with a few polishes and some other fancy beauty goodies…with just one box, I was hooked. The nail polish lasts for a week (ONE COAT my friends. Okay, one color coat – with top and bottom coat, of course), and the colors are AMAZING. They treat mavens like gold (read: all the discounts and mystery boxes). I’m getting away with myself. This isn’t even a sponsored post. Of course, because I’m a Julep affiliate, if you were to click on my link and order a Maven box, I might receive a tiny monetary incentive…but I can promise you it’s worth it. Right now, you can get the City Lights Welcome Box free to try Julep for yourself.
Whoops. Totally got off track here.
Back to your probing questions…and the reason I showed off my freshly painted digits.
Hey Chrissy…did you seriously paint your nails to match your new site design?
Is the Pope Catholic?
Of course I did. Would you have expected anything less ridiculous?
Well, shoot. You’re practically my hero!
Man, you guys are seriously awesome in my head.
I bet you paid someone to make you site look this fancy, didn’t you?
And just like that you lose faith. Rightfully so, of course. Yes, I paid the LOVELY Carol of Pink Haired Pixels to make my site look amazing. I met her at BlogHer, obsessed over her hair and did way too many Twisted Shotz with her before singing karaoke. I’m also thrilled to pieces with her work.
I too have a Julep obsession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YES! It’s SO addictive!
I like it! Although I stumbled onto your site the other day when it must have been in the middle of upgrading and was a little distressed by the complete lack of a comments section.
Yeah, we were under construction a couple days this week. But we’re back up and running and better than ever!
It is VERY you. I’ve heard mixed things about the Julep nail polish… I’ve heard it’s runny and weird. Apparently not? Maybe worth a try?
It’s a little runny, but that makes it go on SO easily. My nails NEVER looked this awesome when I did them myself, but now I feel like I have professional nails all the time. With the free box (you pay a small shipping cost), it’s worth trying out. I wasn’t planning on keeping the monthly membership, but after one box, I was hooked.
I’m an Essie fan for my nail polish. I’m starting to embrace the fall shades. I think next week will officially be the end of my summer pastels. Other than a good french manicure I’ve never been a fan of nail art. Don’t have the patience to do it myself although this summer I was loving matte top coats. Will continue to embrace that in the fall.
I’m so excited for fall shades. I think next week I should have some sweet new ones in my next Julep shipment! 😀
LOVE the nails… and so jealous and obsessed with the new blog design. #IWantOneToo
Thanks! I’m obsessed with it too! #TalkToCarol
well shoot, no wonder I am having issues. I need to go for a manicure I guess….
Manicures are ALWAYS a good idea.
Hmmmmm……..maybe I should wear a bacon and beer cologne to match my blog? 🙂
