Some of you may or may not know, but… before I started talking beauty, I was mostly a cooking AND a childhood memories kind of blog (oh, yes, and a full-time author – have you read my book?). Well, that didn’t work out well for me because I lost interest in cooking because I spent most of my time staring (and drooling over – much to my dismay!)  at swatches and then I really started stalking each and every OPI collection, and I gave myself a “day” off from writing my book (still sitting on book #2, you guys!). Then, I learned about Indies, and my love grew tremendously. I fell hard for these homemade beauties – at first, very skeptical – but then realizing that this was better! Oh, and did I mention, I had a little fall out with nail polish during my pregnancy! I would get EXTREMELY nauseous while looking at swatches – me thinks it’s because of all the scrolling and motion sickness leading to the morning sickness. I should’ve known at that moment I was carrying a boy, but then again, there are some really talented men beauty bloggers, too!! Anyways, back to the point. When my son was maybe 5 months old, I changed the path of my blog altogether! It was a risk since I had such a small baby, but it was worth it! I found all of you! And, you found me! And, because of YOU, we’re celebrating my 2 year blogiversary (on February 17th) as a beauty blogger for Taneja’s Bride. Gosh, I love you and all that jazz! That’s why I had to make this extra special for you, too! So, here’s what I have for you!

I was really, really fortunate to have some LOVELY Indies sponsor more than half of the prizes! Please, make sure you thank them for their generosity! Here they are, in no specific order! They are all SO wonderful, and I truly love (and thank!) them from the bottom of my heart!
