The Nail Files: Packer Playoff Weekend — Amber’s Life

Absolutely love the football theme! Perfect combo for the Packers’ colors.

I tried replying back to your comment but your email address isn’t linked to your profile so I couldn’t. BUT – I had to share these reds with you!

If you can get your hands on Vodka and Caviar by OPI, that has been one of my favorite reds of all time! I think they stopped making it but you can find it online. It’s not too bright, but not too dark! Also First Dance by Essie is really great too.

I’m a sucker for a good red! Jordan recently posted..Delirium

I’m Back!

I’ve been super busy in the past few months. I’ve been working alot, which I love!, but I’ve also been doing alot of crocheting and a little bit of designing.

A Blog Hijacking!

Hey guys! It’s Vicki!  I’m hijacking Amber’s blog today!!! Actually it’s the least I can do since she is slaving over my new blog design as we speak (yessss, I’m getting ready to jump-ship to WordPress!!!) Andddd since Amber’s been asking me to guest post for awhile, I figured it was time I finally did!

I’m getting ready to leave for my third cruise next week! I love cruises.  I want to see the world on a cruise ship! One of my life dreams is to go on one of those 20-30 day cruises, I think that would be AMAZING!

The first cruise I ever went on was to the Carribean … and I really and truly fell in love with cruising.  There is something just so amazing and peaceful about being on a boat in open seas with no land in sight … and the ship?! Crazy.  Anything and everything you could ever want or need can be found on a cruise ship … And the food is to die for too! LOL!


The second cruise we went on was an Alaskan cruise.  I felt very lucky to be on that cruise, I mean how many twenty-somethings can say they’ve not only taken a cruise to Alaska but also RODE IN A HELICOPER?! That was an amazing experience … you can read more about my helicopter ride here.



This time we are going back to the  Carribean but to some islands we have never been to before … To say I am super excited is an understatement.  I cannot wait to dig my toes into the warm sand, and feel the heat of the sun on my face and the sound of the ocean and the peace of the water … I am looking forward to the week away and spending some much needed relaxation time with my sweetheart …. as well as diving into a book or two (or three?) on my Kindle …….. ahhh it sounds like paradise and I just cannot wait!!!  Nine days to go (but really, whose counting?!)

I may have a slight addiction. — Amber’s Life

One week ago I got an email from Julep about a trick or treat mystery box so I snatched that up and it arrived a few days ago. I also ordered my October Maven Box (I was a little late this month) and that arrived today. I’ve also ordered 2 new polishes (one of which is glow in the dark) that will arrive next week.

In the october boxes there were Glitter Pots included. These are so much fun!! In my trick or treat box I got a purple and a Blue and then in the October Maven Box I got a Black and an orange.

as you can see the glitter pots are a little messy but they are so much fun!! I have the black glitter on the other hand and I definitely like the purple one better, more sparkly!!

October maven box. Includes: Black and Orange Glitter Pots. 2 nail polishes. One reg deep maroon and a black crackle. one bottle of the new Quick Dry Polish Drops (which I love!!)

This is my Trick or Treat Mystery Box. Included: 3 polishes, 1 coppery orange, a light orange and more of a yellow orange. 2 Glitter Pots, Blue and Purple. 1 sheet of Halloween Nail Decals.

Feeding My Addiction — Amber’s Life

My Nail Polish addiction that is! I recently joined in on the All Lacquered up nail polish swap and I got partnered with Danielle.

I loved the colors she got me! They were totally winter! Which was perfect because over the summer I got a ton of new summer colors but not alot of winter colors!

I also got some nail files but I couldn’t find then when I took the pic

I redid my nails last night and I’m wearing the Essie “it’s genius” and the Sinful Colors “Folly”

I had so much fun and I absolutely LOVE my new colors!!

Blog Star: Hi! I’m Amber

I’m Amber, a blog design loving bookworm. I love going to the cabin up north, where we ride the 4-wheelers on the trails, fish and just hang out by the fire. I love anything that has to do with Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, friends, family, Photoshop, Illustrator… and of course my Mac or anything that Apple creates! I’m also a self-proclaimed book worm so if I’m not at my computer you can usually find me with my nose in a book or attached to my nook. You can also find me over at my design blog Zany Dezines Currently I’m working at the front desk at 2 hotels here in town and I love it! In fact I had to work last night and even though it was crazy busy I loved every minute of it!

I’ve also started working on my crochet hats and things again. You can see them in my Etsy shop Cozy Crafters.

If you are looking for a new blog design come find me at Zany Dezines and I’ll give you 25% off your design when using code September Blog Star

I’m also having a blog sale (granted there are only a few things up right now lol) because I’m cleaning out my closet and my room so I can get new stuff

I think Mother Nature is Confused

because it’s january and we have no snow. This morning it felt like Fall with the frost on the ground, but otherwise it’s been a warm winter so far! I really only have to wear a jacket at night.

Typical Winter

What we have now

I really really hope we have snow by March cause we’re doing the Sleigh Ride again like we did last year.
