Southern Ontario Nail Blogger Meet Up!!!

Hi Guys!

I'm excited to share this post with you today because it all about my experience at the meet up that a bunch of us nail bloggers recently held in London Ontario. First lets see who made it (and couldn't make it this time):

Marta- Chit Chat Nails
Katy & Elizabeth - Life and Polish
Steph -Sincerely Stephanie
Katie & Lisa -Harlow and Co

Sadly missed:
Carmela - Polished Indulgence
Pam- Pams Girly Bits
Mary- Swatch and Learn

We all met up at Katy's apartment, and then walked to a little Greek restaurant for an early dinner/late lunch to chat and get to know each other a little better. Our discussion varied from school, to work, to laundry lint filters! Of course we also touched on basics like shopping, nail polish, konading, and kids. The waitress commented that we seemed like old friends after we told her most of us were meeting for the first time.  Here we are with our scrumptious food!

On the left side, front to back we have Marta, Katy and Elizabeth. On the right side, front to back we have Stephanie, Katie, Lisa, and Me at the very end. This is Martas picture and I'm glad she is letting me use it because I barely lifted my camera the whole time we were out... In fact I took only one picture!

After lunch the real fun started, including SWAPING!

...and Chatting!

and a little more of both...

And this was the only picture I took. Check the Harlow and Co t-shirts we got from Katie!
We all brought in some desert, but we only just ended up going to town on the world most amazing cupcakes that Katy picked up...yuuuumm Nail polish and cup cakes, is that a thing? because it totally should be if it isn't! And if it isn't, well the London meet up just made it a thing! Polish and cup cakes Woo!!

Now I don't normally write haulage posting, but today is a special occasion.
I purchased these two from Harlow and Co. and Katie hand delivered them for me... Thanks Katie!
Girly Bits Arctic Sunrise & Layla Ultra Violet

Next is also from Katie and Harlow and Co:
Glitter Gals!! Green Suede Shoes, Nude, Transitions Soft Violet

Enchanted Polish Secret Sauce and Picture Polish Demeter
Swap Polish! 
Dollish Dark Elf, OPI Bronzed to Perfection, Zoya Ivanka (!!!). NOPI Kim-pletely in Love, Sally Hansen Nail Prism Emerald Amethyst(Sqeeee!), and Finger Paints Military Green. Yep! I got spoiled! I forgot to include China Glaze In The Lime Light in my pictures.
The (almost) total haul:

I wore my new t-shirt and when I got home I promptly got it dirty right in the front... So no pictures until I wash it. Katie also made us all bracelets with the extra buttons she had left over from her wedding, they were so cute!
