Hey there, my name’s Dori. I’ve been alive for 23 years now but I’m convinced I’m still 21 and gonna stay that way for about 5 more years. I was born and raised in San Diego and have spent the past five years of my life living and attending college in LA. I have a bit of a fascination for nail polish and makeup (Bare Escentuals in particular) and basically anything that glitters and sparkles. I also get quite excited about anything that fall into the “cozy” category. Probably because I’m always cold. I’m convinced my blood temperature is set to 5 below that of a normal human being. I love quilts and sweaters and scarfs but have no patience to make them. Lucky for me, my mom quilts and knits so I have boxes full of scarfs and I recently talked her into making me a Grinch themed Christmas quilt which will on my bed way earlier and stay on way longer than any other human would tolerate. Let’s just say I’m a bit more than obsessed with the whole Christmas season and I start listening to Christmas music in September. And since I get into the spirit a bit earlier than the norm, that also means that you can expect to see a lot of red, green, sold, silver and glitter on this blog starting in the early fall. What can I say? I’m a sucker for the winter season and how magical it feels!! And nothing adds more fun and magic than glitter!
My nail polish interest began around 2007 in attempts to help me break the horrid habit of biting my nails. Luckily, I broke the habit cold turkey. I started painting my nails on a regular basis and the allure of glitter, bright colors, shimmer, and unique finishes has got me hooked on polish for life. My stash has grown with time and my likes and dislikes in polishes have changed have changed a bit since day one my favorite colors have been shades of turquoise and my favorite finish is glitter (and a lot of it!) which is something that I think will never change. I started my blog on a whim on Thanksgiving of 2010 after months and months of friends trying to convince me to do so. I’m so glad I did because it brings it’s allowed me to reach and connect with other polish lovers. It also brings me joy to share with you all and to see that you enjoy the blog. I started for me but I keep coming back for you!
