Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!!
Even though I am no longer in New Orleans, I left a piece of my heart (and my stomach) in that beautiful city. Not only did I get to experience the captivating NOLA for the first time, I got to do it while reveling in the marvelousness that is Polish Con. Stunning polishes, mouthwatering food, and great company….. what more could a girl ask for???
Leaving Polish Con and NOLA, I have only two regrets. I didn’t get to meet all of the HHC makers that came to the event and I did not eat nearly enough food! Hopefully I can rectify this at the next event!!
But let me get back on topic. It’s time for another month of stunning Hella Handmade custom polishes.
