February 2014 Recap

I Got Sick!  28 Days Is Not Enough!

   Haha, I didn't know what to do with the highlight captions this month.  February sure went by quickly.  Between getting really sick at the beginning of the month and my little girl experiencing a 2-week fussy spell in the middle, it sort of feels like February didn't even happen.

February Goals
  • Finish stocking my Storenvy shop
  • Build a lightbox (if I find the right box)
  • Host a giveaway
    Stocking the shop would be done except I found a few more things that need to be listed.  The shop is open however, and sales have been going well!  Zoyas and indies are especially hot sellers!  (Go see what is already available if you don't want to miss out.)  Still haven't found the right box for Goal #2... but I'm faring well without it so far.  And yes, I did host a mini giveaway!  Winner revealed in this post, as I hoped.  =)

January 2014 Recap

Win a $100 Amazon Gift Card!  Princessly Polished is on Facebook!

   Is it any surprise that things didn't go as expected for me this month?  I ended going back to work 2 weeks earlier than we were planning on, and now I'm just starting to get into a new routine.  Again.  As I said a couple posts ago, I'm trying for blog updates on Wednesdays and Fridays for now!

January Checklist
  • Finish stocking my Storenvy shop
  • Put the finishing touches on, for real this time
  • Build a light box
   One of these things got checked off, but I already need to update my social media buttons again.  The media buttons I'm using currently seem a bit off with my new layout, anyway.  (Does this mean I should have left this item un-crossed off?)  As for my other projects, my Storenvy shop is close to being completely stocked (and I've already made sales!  So I'm not too upset about that - I'll have the rest of my destash polish listed soon.  The light box hasn't been built because I couldn't find a box that I was 100% happy with.  I refuse to buy a square box...  I know I will get one to recycle eventually.

December 2013 Recap

New Storenvy Shop Open!  Adventures in Graphic Design!  

   This post is going up a lot later than I hoped it would, but at least I'm typing again!  One day off blogging turned into two, then an entire week.  Losing my momentum is not good!  But I'm back now...  Let's see how I did this month, shall we?

December Checklist
  • Get all my 2013 swatches, manicures and nail art posted.  Yes!  I managed to get my pictures edited, written about, and posted, except for one tutorial that I'm saving for next month.
  • Finish the polish swatching and organizing.  Somehow, I managed to swatch every single one of my polishes, which led to me culling out many more bottles from my collection...
  • Get all my destash sales posted. no, I did not get this done.
  • Put the finishing touches on  Still working on this one, too.
   Not as good as I would have liked to do, but some of my projects evolved into much bigger ones once I got into them, and little Freya had a very needy two weeks midway through the month.

November 2013 Recap

Edit:  Whaa!  I had this scheduled to go live on Nov 30th and I just noticed it still wasn't up... stupid Blogger!  ;_;

    Hello, everyone!  I'm starting a new way to to end each month here on Princessly Polished.  I'm expanding the collective haul post to include other topics such as projects I'm working on, my favorites of the month, blogging goals, etc...  I hope you enjoy it!

   To start things off, this just happened:
