Blog Roll and Malware

Hey Everyone! 
There have been a lot of issues with blogs and malware going around lately. I don't know a lot about it other than I keep getting warnings and though I thought I solved the issue I was informed tonight that I still had a bad link on my page. I think I fixed it but I am not sure. Please let me know if any of you experience issues with my page. I love all the blogs I had listed on my blog roll and I am hoping I will be able to go back through the list and find everything A-ok so I can add them back on there but tonight I do not have the time. I will figure all of that out later. For now I have taken most of it down until I have the issues resolved.

It has been a rough week and I am trying to get a lot done so I haven't had much of a chance to get a post up for you all. I know, I am slacking. I will try and make it up to you as soon as possible. For now though I must run. 

That's all for now :)

Quick Hi

Hey Everyone! The zoo is alive and well here. Kittens are crazy, puppy has had surgery and kids are making ME crazy. Things are chaotic and I am trying to get some sort of routine going but I am having issues finding it. I have so much to do and so little time to do it that I have things going on everywhere. I need to figure some things out so I can multi-task. It would be great if I could edit my pictures and blog at work, I am going to have to look into that. The interesting news is that because I am so busy I am not changing my polish daily right now. Crazy huh?! 

All is well and I will have a better post up for you as soon as I can get a bit of time to edit pictures. There is lots going on and I have TONS of new polishes to share with you from some amazing, awesome creators. I have been slacking on reading blogs as well. So much to do and so little time. I hope everyone is well, I haven't been able to comment on blogs but I am trying to still glace at them when I get a chance. 

That's all for now :)

Zoya Mitzi

Hey Everyone! It has been hectic. The puppy gets surgery Monday, the kittens returned last night and I am sitting here trying to figure out WHY I smell pee. I am fairly certain mr. puppy peed over here somewhere but I just swiffered the floor and can't figure out where. I sincerely hope he did NOT pee on my mother's desk. If he did I really hope I am NOT home when she discovers this. I can tell you this, it is driving me nuts. Maybe he peed on the leg of this chair? I don't know but I am going to post this quickly so I can try and figure it out before I lose my mind.

Today I have for you a Zoya polish from their Mod Matte Collection. 

Mitzi is described as a "funky murky light yellow toned lime" by Zoya. It is a matte type finish though I put top coat on it so I can't show you that aspect of it.

Please excuse the lack of clean up on this mani. I have no idea why I took this picture pre clean up but I did.

I love the color but this sucker did not apply well for me at all. I am not sure if it was due to the experiment I have been doing with my base or if it was due to the polish. 

It might of just needed some thinner though. I am not sure yet.

I am totally loving the color though.

I had to use three coats to even in out after the awful application.

Due to the polish being matte-like it dried pretty fast.

It is a super fun summer color and would go great with a fruity mixed drink with those little umbrellas.

You can see where my fingers were all tore up from the kittens. They are finally starting to get back to normal now that the kittens aren't being bottle fed and ripping them to shreds.

Ok I found a sniffer to help me figure out where this is coming from. I better go before he changes his mind lol. 

That's all for now :)

The Recent Happenings

Hey Everyone! I am emotionally drained. I am frustrated and annoyed and just not having a good week. I do have an actual nail polish post for you that I will prepare. This post is going to have some random stuff and maybe a little venting in it too lol. I will catch you up on my week of being M.I.A.

Last week was the end of the school year. My darling son tried to tank his school year at the end by failing his prefinal. After some stern talking and a lot of studying, stress and worrying he pulled off an A on his final. He only missed ONE question. He has amazed both himself, us and his teacher. I still want to smack him with a shoe for the F but punk finished out the year with Honor Roll all 4 Quarters. It is a first and hopefully not a last.

I threw this together for his after school program teachers. I was already making 100 of the masks I will show you in a minute so I figured I could squeeze 12 of these stars in there too. They are sitting in half of an apple, it has a top but it won't fit with the chocolates in there.

THEN there was the band banquet which I thought, oh hey I can make chocolates for that too. Because you know making 100 detailed chocolate masks is not already enough work to be done.

I got them all made. The kids liked them. It was a success. I still had to finish making those chocolate masks though. I also had to drive upstate to get df's daughter AND we had another unexpected guest arrive at our house.

This is some of the MANY masks. I am completely tired of the colors purple and turquoise now!

They got wrapped up and tied with purple ribbon. I got these done Sunday which is good considering they were due Monday. I feel like a weight was lifted off my shoulders after I got the last one done.

My brother came home and wanted to do origami. I told him to give me shiny paper and make the youtube video bigger so I could play too. We made flapping birds. Mine flapped which made me very happy. He was a bit annoyed because I was able to do origami well on my first attempt. HAHA!

Bruce Kittlee Master Ninja Warrior decided he wanted my flapping bird.

Bruce says birds are food not friend.

This little guy is semi friend. He got hit by a car on Friday. He was brought to df by a guy that stopped a semi from hitting him and grabbed him out of the middle of the street. He didn't see the initial car hit him but luckily saw him in time to save him. He has a NASTY break and need surgery, plates and screws in his leg. He is cute but doesn't seem to like people much. Hopefully he comes around. He is going to the doctor today, hopefully will get the surgery done asap. I guess we will be rehabbing him and trying to get him to be more people friendly.

My kitten friends are at a potential home right now. They are undergoing treatment to see if they will stop shaking so the vet knows what is wrong with them. It is a long story. I don't know much yet. They might be back, they might be in their forever home. The shaking might be cured or might not. I am really not happy with not knowing what is going on though. I guess time will tell.

That was most of my week. School is out, summer has begun. I have been crazy busy and stressed so I haven't paid much attention to my nails for the past week. I have polished them but haven't had a chance to take pictures or anything. I cut them down a bit to get rid of some damage and my hands are still recovering from all the kitten scratches and bites lol. Hopefully things get back on track. If you can send positive vibes out for the puppy and kittens I would appreciate it. :)
