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 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.

What we have now

Swap Recaps

I recently did 2 awesome swaps! The first was the Doggone Dog Swap in which I was partnered with Finn.

Finn sent cali some really cool stuff!!

She saw those treats and immediately wanted them. She loved them so much!  The lion has become one of her favorite toys.

The other swap I participated in was the books n’ Bloggers swap where I was partnered with Ricki

 I’ve already read It’s All Greek to Me and Crazy for you since I got them. They were so awesome!! I think I finished It’s all greek to me in about a day since we were upnorth so i got to read a lot. I loved both books so far and I’m looking forward to reading the 3rd one

August Julep Maven Box — Amber’s Life

I got my August Julep Maven box the other day and I absolutely love the colors that I got! I chose to get the Bombshell box this month so I got 2 polishes (Kim & Harley) along with a tote bag and a nail polish remover. The remover is really nice, it’s in a pump bottle so it’s much easier to use than the standard bottle of polish remover.

Kim: Gunmetal Metallic Gray

Harley: Chrome

I swear I haven’t abandoned you!

I‘ve been so super busy lately!! I started babysitting in June and then at the end of June I got a new job (that I love so much!!) working for 2 hotels here in town (they’re owned by the same person so everyone works both places), It’s so much fun getting to meet all the people who are traveling from all over the country!

I recently did 2 swaps ( and am doing another one right now) so I’ll tell you all about the awesome stuff that I got from those this week!

I’m also going to post some recipes for banana bread and zuchini bread this week because we made zuchini bread last week and I love it almost as much as I like banana bread.

I think I’m going to start crocheting again soon (i stopped over the summer), but recently I’ve had the urge to start again.

What have you been up to while I’ve been missing?
