Happy New Year

Hi lovely ladies, It's 2012! A new year! Yay :D I've only been blogging since September, so I decided not to do a 2011 favs. Instead I'll be talking about the blogs and some of the people/companies I've come to love.

These are just a few. I follow many more wonderful blogs and it was so hard to narrow down.

Companies I've come to love:

I will forever be a loyal fan/customer of Zoya. They have great CS. I had such a great time trying to win Christmas flash promo after promo. And, when I won boy did I win! I bought 6 polishes and came out with 24! Now that's a deal! They made it so much fun and I can't wait for Christmas this year! Click here to visit their site.

Sally Beauty Supply:
Their awesome PR rep made sure my local Sally's held a set of the Finger Paints flakies, when I was told they did not have them in yet. I went to 3 different stores looking for these babies! My local Sally's has great CS too! Click here to visit their site.

a England:
I had the opportunity to purchase my 1st a England polishes and was super excited. The lovely Adina made me feel special. She sent a signed business card wishing me luck on my polish journey. I thought that was such a sweet thing to do. One of my goals is to own her entire collection. LOL :) Click here to see why I want her collection :D

Cutex has been in my house since like ever! I will always be a Cutex fan. I will always have this product in my house! They have the best CS too! Click here to check out their products and nail care tips.

2011 has been an awesome year for me and I know 2012 is going to be even better! God has been so good to me, I never could have done so much without his loving grace and favor. I serve a God who knows the secret desires of my heart and wants to give me all those blessings.  I was able to leave my job and return to school without worries. I have a wonderful family and honey that supports everything I do. I have the most amazing BFF, my laotong. She always shares Funky Frenchies link. I started this blog and it's wonderfully growing. Just think when I started this blog I had zero followers and was talking to myself. Ok, well I only talked to myself for about a minute, because as soon as I let my family know I created Funky Frenchies they immediately followed. I'll never forget my 1st follower. Who was that? My Baby Boy (my son) What an awesome son I have! and now I have a whopping 39!  I'm so humbly honored that I have followers and people are genuinely interested and care about what I have to say.

My prayer for 2012:

I have a two wonderful sons and a daughter-in-law who are sons/daughter of the Most High God who are bright, smart, talented, funny and have bright futures ahead of them. They are approved, anointed and destined to live their lives in victory. Anything they touch will prosper. This is my declaration for my sons, daughter-in-law and everyone. In Your Name Jesus, Amen

I serve a God who says, there's nothing I can't do, because "if He is with me, who dare be against me." Who's going to be with me every single step of this journey He's given me. I know I'll stumble a little but He's going to be with me making sure I don't fall and if I do He's going to pick me up and get me going again. I know my warehouse of blessings will never be empty. God, I give all the honor and glory to you. Amen.

From Funky Frenchies have a happy nail polishing year :D

  3. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Hot towel cabinet and Hot towel cabinet with uv sterilizer. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Spa&Equipment websites.
