It’s crazy to me that less than a month ago, I told you guys about Central and Southern Arizona getting freak snow storms. Fast forward just two weeks… the birds are chirping, flowers are starting to bloom, temps are edging into the low 80s. Yes ladies and gentlemen, Spring is here!!!
Speaking of other exciting news, guess who’s going to Polish Con NOLA this year?!?!?! It has been two years since my last trip to a Polish Con and I am ready for another polish adventure. That being said, I have to admit that I am more excited about the amazing food and drinks than I am for the polish this time around. I plan to take lots of pictures (I have to keep reminding myself to do this) and I will share them all here! I can’t wait to see my fellow nail polish addict there!
