The good news is...I'm back! I had a RIDICULOUS time on the cruise last week. I never want to overburden this blog with personal details about my life that will mean very little to the rest of the world, but I've just got to tell you: I. NEEDED. THAT. I've been on about seven cruises at this point, so it's not new to me, but I've been through so much over the last year or so that apparently I just had a lot of thinking and mental reframing to do that I didn't even know I needed to do, and I DID it. I had a stoopid amount of fun, and learned a bit about myself in the process. It was a personal retreat, if you will.
The bad news is...I lost my camera somewhere along the way. I've emailed Carnival in the hopes that it was in my room or something, but until then, I've got nothing with which to document my adventures in lacquer. (Also, I lost all my cruise pics. ACK!) Between reevaluating my life right now and that unfortunate happenstance, this means that you'll be seeing less of me. I. Am. Sorry. My goal is to post perhaps once a week now, since I have a few unposted pics stashed up. Hopefully I'll hear from Carnival with some good news; otherwise I'll have to wait for some holiday deals to roll around so I can get a good deal on the camera I've been eyeballing anyway.
To throw in another bit of good news, I'm going to look at this time as a great window with which to try to shape my nails up a bit (no pun intended). I broke down and bought a $20 bottle of Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator, so we'll see how it does! I'll bring you a swatch shot later in the week, but I just wanted to check in quickly post-cruise.
