mani, award, big news, nail sets, & needed suggestions

hiii :D as the title says, here is my mani.

i did this mani about two weeks ago so i cant even start naming off the polishes i used, whoops.

continuing with the title of this post, an award!~ im both thankful and honored to be considered a 'top nail site' by frugaldad. click this link to check out the rest of the list.

alright, moving on, big news! :D well, theres more than just one news to share, so i'll share the smaller news first.

im looking into buying a new camera! a lot of people have been asking for tutorials and my current camera records horrrrrible quality videos. i've been doing some research on cameras and i've narrowed my lists of possible cameras down to a few but im definitely still up for suggestions~ im not looking for a big ol fancy camera. i just need something that is of decent size, good to take pictures of nails & to take around and take pictures of whatever, records videos in niiice quality [for tutorials! :D], and is of decent price. $350-$400 will be my price cap. so yes, any suggestions?

next order of business, in September, im going to New York for a weekend with my sister & friend. it'll be our first time there .. and we already have this huuuuuuge list of things we want to do, places we want to see, and restaurants we want to try ... but i still want to ask you guys for any suggestions of things to do, places to visit, and restaurants to eat at. suggestions are most definitely welcomed :)

and lastly, the biggest news to share ... i am ever so happy to share that i am going to Thailand for 2 weeks in December for a missions trip! :DDDD i’ll be going with a bunch of other people from our church, luckily, my older sister and good friends are going as well. this will be such an amazing opportunity and yet nerve-wrecking at the same time. it will truly be a life changing event and im sooo excited :D

and finally, nail sets. [the nail sets kind of relate to my big news :P] so, as i mentioned before in a post a while ago, i was gunna start selling nail sets. i figured this would be the perfect time to start selling because i have so many things planned right now ... that means i have to be saving a lot! i have an etsy shop and a paypal account but im not exactly sure how to use them :P someone also suggested to sell the nail sets through facebook [meaning i post the pictures of the nail sets on fb & then whoever wants to buy it can message me and we'd figure out payment method through there] .. idk. whatever will make things easiest. any suggestions?

alright, i guess this is it for this post. sorry i pushed everything into one post. i just wanted to tell you so badly :P

have a good one!,
