I’ve Been Nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award!


Hi everyone!

It’s with great pleasure that I get to share with you that I’ve been awarded a Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely miss Ginger Loves Makeup! Words cannot express how excited I am to have received this- it means so much to know that you all support and like my blog! When I started this blog, my goal was to find a way to help relieve my own stress by doing something that I truly love to do: paint my nails. It’s truly wonderful to know that there are so many people from all over the world who have found my blog and enjoy what I’m doing. Thank you to ALL OF YOU, whether you’re a follower, a reader, or even just checking out my blog for the first time, for your support. It truly means the world to me 🙂

  2. Oohh that’s funny, I can dislocate my shoulders at will too (best party trick ever!). I had a lot of joint pain as I was growing up and so we went to get it checked out. After lots of tests, the doctor basically said I just have dodgy joints. My sisters don’t have any problems, but my little brother does, so I guess it’s in our family too!

    Thanks again for the nomination 😀

  3. Thank you!! And I love your blog header!

  4. Congratulations and please continue blogging! 🙂
