99 things

Hey guys :)
I had a migraine earlier and took my med, which really makes me feel blah.
So I didn't have the energy to do a nail or makeup look today,
but I still wanted to blog.
SO, I saw this little survey thing on Kaki's blog the other day
and figured now would be a good time to do it.
I like to do these things every now and then,
& love to read what other people write when they do them.

if any of you end up doing this,
leave me the link as a comment because I'd love to read it! 


  1. Loved being able to read more about you! Made me want to do it too so here is the link to mine :)

  2. Awesome!! You crack me up with your answers. And caviar refers to eggs of a specific fish (sturgeon I think?) and the stuff on sushi is from a different fish. I had to look this up recently! Haha thank you Wikipedia.


I enjoy reading & appreciate any and all comments! This whole blog is still a work in progress and i'm learning more about the nail/beauty world everyday... I appreciate any feedback & knowledge you provide! :)
