Say Hello to the Newest Member of the LuvMyLacquer Family!

Hello Lacquer Luvers! Today is so special to me because I get to share awesome news (and pics) with my blog family. Since I began blogging, I've come to think of you all as members of this family. You are always so supportive of my work and made me feel as though we are all one big happy polish family and for that I'm forever grateful. As you all know (or might suspect), my daughter, Gabrielle Lynn, is finally here! She was born August 15, 2012 at 1:03pm. She weighed 7lb8oz and was 19.5 inches long. Not only is she the final piece to my family's puzzle, she's also the future of LuvMyLacquer!
Big Brother Tyus loves his Little Sister Gabby!

I feel incredibly blessed to have two happy, healthy, and beautiful children. It was always my dream to be married and have two kids; a boy and a girl. I can't believe that I have that and what an amazing feeling it is to be able to say that my dreams have come true. You all know how much I adore my son, Tyus, from previous posts. Now I get to have Mommy and Me mani time (not anytime soon, of course) with this precious little girl and I cannot wait to share these special moments with her! I really do feel like I'm on Cloud 9 right now.



I kind of have this thing where I like to celebrate special moments the best way I know how - with nail polish, of course! So, to celebrate the arrival of Gabrielle Lynn, I am going to host a giveaway. The prize will be one bottle of ZOYA GABRIELLE. Zoya is one of my absolute favorite brands and how could I resist picking up my daughter's namesake polish? Well, actually I got two bottles - one for me and one for one of you! Gabrielle can best be described as "Translucent shimmering orange with flecks of golden glitter. Outshine the sun in this perfect summer shade."

Jessica

  3. Congrats... Little Gabrielle, I wish you have a long, blessed life... You are a total cutie pie... :) Well, I wish Zoya had a polish with my name, because I love my name, Aylin (Eileen)... And also my daughter's name, Selin (Celine)... :)

  4. Zoya comes close to having a polish with my name, but not quite. I'm Lee Ann, and Zoya's is Lianne. I wish they had a polish named Mariah for my daughter. I love that my daughter's name isn't very common, but we can never find anything personalized.

  13. I have two boys and would love a baby girl (or two!) to complete our family :) My name is Helen, and there is a Zoya Helen but I don't like it! If I were to have a baby girl I would call her Tessa Elizabeth - Zoya Tess is a really pretty metallic rose :)

    Congratulations on the safe arrival of your beautiful baby girl - the polish in the tiny shoe is just too cute for words!
