Hella Handmade Creations|October 2018 – Part 1 (A-L)

As I am typing this, there is a magnificent storm going on outside. I am reveling in it because rain and good thunderstorms are few and far between here in Arizona. AND, more rain and storms are coming at the end of this week!! For some reason, the Arizona Powers That Be got on the Fall bandwagon and we actually have Fall weather and temps in the 70s and 80s. I could get used to this. Lying in bed in my comfy leggings, binge watching an NCIS: LA marathon. What more could a girl ask for??


Let’s get down to business, because we are back at my favorite time of the month – The Hella Handmade Creations October Sale. I have 18 (yes, 18!!) gorgeous polishes to share with you.
