Hi all!

There’s a new Feel-Good Friday post up on my new blog, A Little Cup of Random located at www.littlecupofrandom.com.

I hope you’ll come visit me over at my new home. I’m starting to get lonely!

Feel-Good Friday 7/5/13

Today I have a few feel-good things to talk about.

~ All this recent polish changing has resulted in my nail polishing skills getting a lot better. My latest manicure actually looks like it could have been done in a salon. Well, a salon with a nail tech who needs to work on their cuticle maintenance, but still, the polish job looks pretty darn good. 😉

~ Speaking of polish, Bondi New York finally announced that they will be doing their own monthly “nail mail” subscription box beginning in August.  I’ve included all of the details in a separate post so click here if you want more info, or just go directly to the sign up page to put your name on the list to get the details on the first box.  I’ve already signed up because it sounds like it’s going to be a really good sub!

~ A friend of mine that I see almost every day during the regular school year, but haven’t seen all summer is back in town, and we are getting together tomorrow to catch up. I’m really looking forward to it!

~ I’ve been growing my hair out to donate to Locks of Love, but want to be sure I’ll still have plenty of length when I finally get it cut. I actually measured my hair yesterday, and I only need about 4 more inches before I’ll be ready to cut it off and send it in.  That should only take me another 3 or so months, so I’m happy that I will be able to help a child with cancer get a hair piece AND that I will finally be rid of my crazy long hair!

~ I know I’ve posted a lot this week about my on-going argument with WordPress.com about my referral posts. I thought the matter was resolved after the discussion I had with WP Support on Wednesday, but it apparently wasn’t per the additional email I received today. I’m sick of dealing with the issue so I’ve found a web hosting company I can live with, and I’m migrating this weekend. I’ll be sure to make this site point to that one so y’all can find me.  I’m feeling really good about this decision!

~ Goodies Co., ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox all billed this week, and the last two will supposedly be shipping out next week. I’m super excited!!!

~ And finally, this showed up in my mailbox today:

Surprise!

You may be thinking, “So what. It’s another subscription box.”  Well, it IS just another subscription box, but not one that I currently subscribe to.  I actually posted about the reason why I was dropping my GlossyBox subscription back in my first Random Monday post so I won’t go into the whole thing again here.  Just suffice it to say that I had some issues with the way GB handled an issue with their June box, and I cancelled because I wasn’t happy with the way it all went down.

Anyway, given that I knew I cancelled, I was completely shocked when Roger told me my GlossyBox had arrived.  I immediately double-checked to be sure my account was inactive, and it was.  I also checked to be sure that I had received my refund for June’s box, and I did.  So I called GlossyBox Customer Support to find out what was going on.  They basically told me that they had completely messed up, and sent me a June box by mistake even though they do indeed show that my account has been cancelled, and my payment refunded.  I offered to mail the box back to them, but they told me to just go ahead, keep it, and enjoy it, and that they hoped it would help me decide to re-subscribe to their service.

SO, this means that I now have a surprise box to review.  I’ve already opened it, taken pics and tried out a few of the products.  I’ll reserve my opinions for my actual review which won’t be up until some time next week.  I will admit that I was feeling kind of yucky today so this was definitely a nice pick me up.  Surprise boxes full of goodies are ALWAYS nice to receive.

Feel-Good Friday

I spent most of today busy with homework and projects for my internship. Despite being busy, I definitely had a couple of feel good things to focus on today.

~ First off, I saw “Monsters University” today, and I loved it! The marching band cadences had me tapping my toes throughout the whole movie, and I really liked the short before it as well.

~ My natural nails are really soft and weak, so I did some research on something that might help, and found Nailtiques Formula 2. I’ve only been using it a couple of days, but my nails already feel better, and are less bendy.

~ Because my nails are less bendy, my manicure is staying on way better. I’m loving this lilac polish!

Color Club “Pardon My French”

Please disregard my horrible manicure. I was in a hurry before the movie, and forgot to push back my cuticles.

~ I’m pretty sure I’ve solidified my last internship that I need for school, so I won’t have to stress about that any more. It will be with the company I’m currently with, and I might even make commission off my sales. Extra cash would be nice.

~ And finally, my books for this term’s classes arrived today so I won’t have to stress about having them any more. Studying doesn’t make me feel good, but having the tools I need to be successful does.

What are the things you are feeling good about this Friday? Share your comments below, and have a great day! Blog at you later!

Feel-Good Friday

I have several things to feel good about this Friday!

– Today is the Summer Solstice, which means the days are going to start getting shorter. I LOVE this time of year because I love Autumn which means FOOTBALL SEASON! Because I am ALWAYS ready for some football!

– Since the classes from the first term of the Summer semester ended yesterday, and my new classes don’t start until Monday, I am technically on my “Summer Break” this weekend. It’s short, but I’m going to enjoy it!

– I have my Julep Maven box waiting to be opened, and reviewed. I decided to wait until today when I would have the time to use the polish immediately. This of course, also means I’m feeling good about doing my nails today!

– I received a shipping notification this morning letting me know that my first Birchbox is on its way, so that should be arriving sometime next week. Woohoo!

– We have some free passes to the Kennedy Space Center that must be used by the end of June, so we’re going to head over there this weekend. I’ve never been, but Roger visited when he was a kid after his parents picked him up from Space Camp. (Yes, you read that right; he did indeed go to Space Camp.) Either way, it should be fun, and I intend to be sure we stop by the beach for a quick splash in the Atlantic before heading back home.

– I have a new camera that I’ve not had the chance to really try out with an actual destination so I’ll finally be able to put it through its paces at KSC and the beach.

– This little gem:

Monsters University

opens in theatres today, and I can’t wait to see it. I loved Monsters Inc., and am excited to see the character development in this movie, and how it will tie in to that one.

– We got the replacement fan hung in our bedroom so I’m able to finally sleep a bit more comfortably. Even better, this one has a light kit with it, so we finally have overhead light in our bedroom instead of just lamplight.

– And finally, today marks my one-week blogiversary, and I’m happy to say that I’m up to 10 followers in a mere 7 days! It’s a lovely feeling knowing that my writing is not just floating out into the ether with no one but me to read it. I’ve been swamped, so haven’t had time to read and comment on all of the blogs I follow, plus new ones, but I’m working through my list, and will get to everyone asap. A big thanks to everyone who is willing to brave the random!

So as you can see, I have a lot to be feeling good about. Please take a moment to let me know why your Friday is Feel-Good in the comments section below. Blog at you later!

Cheers, Shauna
