Fl Blogger & Friends Meetup

You may have seen this posted on other blogs already - but I am posting it on mine too anyway! Last Saturday a few bloggers from FL decided we would meet up in Orlando. Originally we planned on lunching and swapping and shopping. But we spent so much time talking and swapping, we had very little time for the shopping part. A few of us hit Lush afterwards, but from there everyone had to hit the road. :( Next time (Yes there will be a next time!) we will have to plan for a longer day.


For our first meet up 6 of us attended. Ali from niftyba My friend Leslie who is a mommy blogger, Kim from Libby’s Pink Vanity, Stephanie from ImperfectlyPainted, and Kari from OnceBitten.


Here we are posing with the pope. L to R: Kim, Kari, Me in the back, Ali, Leslie in the back and Stephanie. Are we not the cutest group? 

OK seriously - I can't get over Ali's hair! I seriously think I may cut my hair in a similar style! I LOVE it! You have to check out Ali's blog by the way, she has a fashion & nail blog where she shows her outfits of the day and her nail of the day. She just recently cut her hair into this cut. I think I may take the leap and copy Ali!

Look at all that polish! We all let the swap idea go and it was a take what you want free for all! I didn't take too much. Since Leslie is a Mommy blogger and a friend I recently got into nail polish, she didn't really have a lot to swap up. So I shared my stash with her for swap. 

Here's what I brought home! Eek! Can't wait to play! What's that blue one on the right you ask?

Ange from Scandalously Polished made this for Stephanie. Yes those are pink flakes you see in there!  Cult Nails will make some minor changes that we discussed at the meet up and try to get it in the line. I still need to decant a little and get it to the lab. I have to say that I left my swap goodies on the counter on Saturday because we had a party to go to and when I got home, all 6 girls at my house had put this on! And I had this on my ring finger to test it and EVERYONE commented and asked if it was going to be a future color. Adonis DNA anyone?





Are those your left overs? Nope it's polish!

We talked about getting together once each season, I can't wait for the next one! 

Before I go, I just wanted to remind everyone to submit your blingtastic Gaga inspired nail pics to maria@cultnails.com for your chance to win the entire A Day at the Races collection!
