Well it’s that time guys, it’s time to find out who the winner(s) of my 300 Follower Giveaway is! Unfortunately this time I didn’t get as much participation as I’d have liked…which is kind of a disappointment. But that just means that next time I’ll have to try harder!

There was only one valid entry to this giveaway – as only one person commented. So a big congratulations to

{CLOSED} 300 Follower Giveaway!!!

OH MY GOSH GUYS!!! We did it! We hit 300 followers! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating hitting the 100 follower mark!

I want to thank all of you so, so, SO much for sticking around. I know we bloggers say it all the time, but I literally couldn’t have done it without you all. It’s an incredible feeling, to know that so many people have similar interests as you, and that they all think that your content is good enough to keep up with. And to look back and see where it all started, and through each post getting better and growing, it’s an amazing feeling.

Because when you blog, you do it because you want to connect to other people. And when you start off as just a shy little nail art blogger and blossom into an open, nail/beauty/geekery blogger…it just seems unreal sometimes that so many other people think that you’re good enough to stick around with you. Whenever I feel doubts about myself or my blog or where it’s going, I always remember that I have all of these people – YOU GUYS – that genuinely want to read what I post.

So thank you. All of you. I really appreciate it.

But now let’s get to the good part! This giveaway is going to be just a little bit different from the last one, so let’s get to the details.

I’ll be giving away not one, not two, but THREE gift cards this go ’round, each one will be a $25 E-Gift Card to either Think Geek or Ulta (the chosen winners may only choose ONE).

200 Follower Giveaway Winner Announcement!

Alright everyone, it’s finally time to reveal the two winners of the giveaway I set up a week ago in celebration of my tiny blog reaching a whopping 200 followers! The two winners will be gifted with a $20 e-gift certificate to one of my favorite places to shop, ThinkGeek!

I would like to pause this for one second, just to make a small disclaimer: I am NOT affiliated with ThinkGeek in any way, shape or form. I am NOT receiving any form of compensation for using their website as part of this giveaway. This giveaway was entirely planned and carried out by me, and each of the items mentioned were purchased by me as a gift to the winners.

Before we go ahead and reveal the two winners, I’d just like to take a moment to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart, for supporting this blog and giving me a reason to keep right on posting here. It means a lot to know that there are others out there that actually enjoy reading what I put up here. And each like, each follow, each comment drives me to try harder and work harder to get even better content here for you guys to read and enjoy.

It’s hard to believe that when I started this little blog it was with the main intention of showing the world my nail art ideas…and from there it’s blossomed into what I think is one of the most beautiful internet-flowers I’ve ever imagined it could become. I’m excited to have reached this milestone with you guys, and I can’t wait for the many more to come.

But enough procrastination! It’s time to reveal the two lucky people that get a little extra spending money the next time they visit ThinkGeek. Drumroll please….

{CLOSED} 200 Follower Giveaway Celebration!

A week or so ago I reached the 200 follower milestone! And I have no one to thank but you guys! Without you, I would simply be the crazy girl that posts random stuff to her lame blog that no one reads. XD

On my last milestone, I went and thanked every single one of my 100 followers. But let’s face it, that took forever to accomplish, and the thought of doing the same thing for 200 makes my hands want to cramp up. So instead I’ll jump right into the giveaway.

This time I’m giving away 2 Gift Certificates ($20 a piece) to one of my favorite places in the world…..

Quick Update & Happy Friday

Hi my geeks! I’m here with a quick update before I head off to enjoy the weekend with my family! 😀

So next week will be the busiest I’ve had in a while. On Monday I’ve got my interview at the animal clinic, and then I’ve also got my driver’s test too! I’m so excited and yet soooo nervous. XD And guess what else? I have a phone interview on Wednesday!!!! 😀

I am so excited, and just over-the-moon thrilled that my life is starting to move forward again!

Now, to the bloggy news.

I am going to try to get all of the missing photos back onto the blog by sometime next week, and I’m going to try to post something everyday. Not sure what, but I’ve got a couple of ideas. I’m hoping to have a full week schedule to go by, with different posts every day. Still in the processing stage though, so I’ll let you guys know when I’ve got that figured out.

I have also been contemplating starting a YouTube channel. I’ve wanted to almost since the beginning of my blog, but haven’t really been confident enough to give myself the push to do it. What do you guys think? Should I start my very own YouTube channel? What would you want to watch? Challenges? Vlogging? I know for sure that I want to do nail and/or makeup videos, and I’d really like to do gaming videos too (but I have NO idea where to start with that…help?? Most of my games are on the Xbox 360, but I do play The Sims & World of Warcraft, and I’m getting into League of Legends…what would I need to record? Editing? I’m clueless over here…. x_x ). Let me know of any ideas or suggestions you guys have in the comments below!

I hope you guys have a great weekend!
