Please read: Hey! I'm not dead! News updates! Questions!

Wow. Can I just say that I never thought I'd be gone from the bloggin' scene for so long? I missed it every day I was away, and coming back just feels so good! If you don't feel like reading this whole thing, please note that the domain name of this blog has changed. Skip to the bottom of the post to get the new web address and, if you don't mind, take the brief poll! 

You may have noticed I've been absent and that my ramblings have ceased for the moment. You may also remember me posting a short little heads up, saying that I'd be back in the game in no time. Well, things didn't exactly play out like I'd expected. I don't really feel like airing my long list of personal problems any more than you guys feel like reading about them, so let's just say that my real life outside cyberspace has been seriously hindering my ability to be the blogger I want to be. However, things seem to have settled down and I feel like I have a better grasp on certain areas of my life, so I am optimistic that I can get back into the swing of things, you know what I'm saying?

So there's a few things I'd like to say, if I may...

First and foremost, I cannot express how touched I was every time a new email showed up in my inbox asking how I was the rare times I was able to check my mail. Your support is so encouraging and it is what makes me want to continue blogging. Obviously I'm not out here saving lives with my reviews on beauty products or anything, but the friends that I have made here are just terrific and I plan on reconnecting with each of you!

Secondly, I never announced the Nfu-Oh 51 giveaway winner--she requested anonymity, so I didn't want to reveal her name. Looking back, I should have acknowledged on my blog that a winner had been chosen and the prize given to her, in the interest of closure.

Which brings me to this next fun tidbit: a while back, I had a blog sale, and all polishes were shipped. So imagine my surprise when I read an email this morning saying that certain people had not received their polishes yet! Some of you know that this has been an ongoing struggle for me, but I really thought that all the loose ends had been tied up. This just kills me that some of you hadn't yet received your polishes, and I will be contacting each of you to rectify that situation. Grrr!

On the note of emails...I asked you guys a while back if you would be interested in guest blogging on Aurora's Nails. I got tons of emails back, and I was so excited! Unfortunately, my unwilling hiatus commenced right around that time, so I will be going through and contacting each person and asking if she is still wanting to be a guest blogger. If you are interested in being one and never contacted me, do so now please! :D

Finally, I have made the switch and changed my domain name. Aurora's Nails is now
www.aurorasnails.com

The site may be a bit sluggish for a few days, but I'm hoping that everything transfers smoothly. If you are having any problems, please let me know--it would be greatly appreciated!

And now for the fun part...I have a few collections that I need to review and blog about. I'll be posting the Zoya Sunshine Collection shortly, as I've had those swatched for a while now, but now I'm asking you: what collections would you like to see reviewed the most? I'm going to post them all eventually, but I figured that since I have a bunch to do, I would ask you guys to pick which ones you want to see first. The collections with the most votes are the ones I'll review the soonest. I know you have seen them before, but I'll be showing them again anyway ;D


It's soooo nice to be back, folks! Thank you again, for your patience, support, and love!
