:(

Hey everyone! Sorry for the big gap since my last post. My return to GildedNails was a little hampered by some unexpected events - my husband was made redundant from his job a couple weeks ago and then the day after, he was involved in a crazy freak accident at our new house while renovating and hurt his arm very badly. An enourmous 200kg+ aircon unit fell on his arm! I saw the whole thing happen and it was terrible. The final straw, was my laptop packing it in last week! 

After all these crazy and stressful events, I actually decided to just give up on blogging completely. I couldn't see how I could put time into nail polish when so many serious things were going on in my life which required all my energy.  I just feel like I'm full of excuses at the moment for why I'm not blogging and I hate that.... I have neglected my blog so badly over the past few months :( But my husband convinced me I should keep going, so I'm going to try...... I don't know if I will succeed, but it would kill me to have to give this up for good.....

Until my laptop gets fixed, I will be blogging from my iPad, which really isn't that easy. I haven't found a decent photo editing app yet so watermarks and cropping etc is all over the shop! The laptop is being fixed on Thursday so hopefully iPad blogging is only temporary. So apologies in advance for the next post which was done completely on the iPad. Apple really needs to hurry up and figure out some decent apps for blogging! Or maybe I'm an idiot and just haven't looked properly on the App Store. Any suggestions are appreciated.....

  2. I have no suggestions for apps, sorry, but I just wanted to sympathize with you with all the stuff you've been going through. That's a heap! Don't ever feel bad for not blogging, you blog because you love it. And if the love is (temporarily) gone, so be it. I hope your husband gets better soon and that you both will get out of this whole ordeal a little stronger than before. Good luck! XOXO

  4. I hope your husband is doing well and I hope all will be well soon so you can have less stress even if your not blogging, no one should have so much stress on them. If you need more time I think we'd understand I sure do.

    so sorry for all your troubles :(  They say it comes in threes so hopefully things will take a turn for the better soon.  I need to find some decent blogging apps too but mine need to be for android.

  10. I'm so sorry to hear about all the bad things happening in your life. I understand, I had a similar situation in my family too not too long ago, I guess it's that time of the year? I hope you find blogging to be a nice stress relief, I'd miss your nails.

  12. Hey doll! Trust me, don't give up. Take a hiatus if you need to, but giving up is very final and we all understand how life can get in the way.

    So sorry to hear about hubs and I hope his arm and job sitch are on the improve soon.

    As for blogging from your iPad - Adobe just released Photoshop for the iPad today. I think it's around ten bucks. That should fill your need for a graphic editor.

    Take your time, blog when you can and want to and don't stress about it. We won't forget you.

  14. Hello! I'm an app-aholic, and they've most recently launched Photoshop Touch for iPad! Perhaps you could try that? It's 9.99 in the AppStore. Not to be confused with Photoshop. And it only works with the iPad 2.

    Alternatively, There's also SnapSeed which is pretty good by itself, and I usually use Camera+ (2.99) - they both function beautifully! : )

    Hi, Carina!

    I know life throws crazy curves, but don't give up on blogging just yet. I actually found a full time job so I don't get to blog the way I want to. However, when I can, I throw things up on the blog and hope that my readers remember me.

    I remember you and have you in my blog roll.

    I hope your husband finds a new job. I know all about the stress of redundancies - we've lived and experienced more than we'd ever have liked to. If you ever want to chat about those stresses - or anything else! - hit me up in email.

    Good luck and I hope your husband's arm is much better now.

    -Carina-

    i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditionalspelltemple  for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that  is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him  that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditionalspiritualtemple casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditionalspiritualtemple for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
