1,000 Hits and New Hair!

Posted on

First and foremost I would like to announce a very big “deal” for me: This blog has reached 1,000 hits! Most of them have occurred in the past month too! I obviously started this a year ago, kept it up for three months, and then went AWOL due to several moves to different states (thank you, military) but after reviewing my site stats I have found that strangely enough people continued viewing my blog in the mean time. Now that I have begun updating regularly again I have 17 followers (20 if you count the three I feel aren’t legitimate… It’s hard to explain but I think they’re just trying to advertise or up their numbers; it’s obvious they have nothing to do with nails, fashion, beauty, women, art, etc.) and gain a new one every few days.

This might seem like nothing to the average blogger but it’s a big deal for me, especially when I just revived this thing not that long ago. When I left it I had something like three or four followers and not many hits whatsoever. I was pretty much talking to myself ๐Ÿ™‚ If my blog keeps growing at this pace I will be a happy camper! I’m not asking to be the number one blog online but I sure would like to network with other people who love polish like I do. I sincerely hope those of you reading this have enjoyed my 57 posts thus far!

Now onto my new hair!


This was my 100% natural hair color. The last time I colored it was in June 2012 and it was a box dye slightly darker than my natural tone. Obviously it faded within a few months leaving me with my natural color. This photo makes it almost look red but it’s definitely more brown. In fact, I’d go as far as saying it was Boring Brown!

And after:


Which do you prefer, blonde or brunette? (My feelings won’t be hurt either way. I’ve gone back and forth between the two since I was 14 so I obviously like both!)
