Not running off is a good start xxx
I did enjoy my brother's visit - we did stuff every single day for a week, and it's the first socialising I've done since pandemic, so it was a bit stressful but also enjoyable. I've been glad to get back to normal as well though, I thought all the mixing might have made me a bit less Covid-stressed, but it hasn't
I'm not taken with the new Glams at all, and I don't think I have anything on my wishlist either - lots of polishes I like but nothing I feel I need, but there are doorbuster mysteries etc and maybe a chunky discount on some older shades might tempt me, it certainly did last year!
I've switched my in-office days around so I can do 3 x 2am launches on consecutive days! I was concerned I'd never get up for work the following morning if I was travelling (7am rising, as opposed to 8.30 when I work from home). I am currently looking at PfD 2am Thursday (and it is an enormous basket I've put together, which was a bit of a surprise!); Garden Path at 2am Friday; Nailed It at 10pm Friday; and Great Lakes at 2am Saturday. GLL have small batches releasing which I would like to get, but I doubt if I'll be fast enough - they seem to be about 50 at most in each batch (her last PPU polish sold out with a cap of 1150!!!) and the annoying 2-step verification slows checkout down way too much. I have a plan (she's offered to combine orders so this would work if it was fast enough!) - my fave small batch, do a single item checkout with card instead of Paypal, preferably with the long number copied and ready to paste... If I get it, yay, she will refund postage so I don't need to stop to enter the code. Next, back for the other small batches I would like, try to check those out, if they're not already gone, use the same method again. Finally, go back and order the non-limited new polishes, remember to use the free shipping code, and I should be able to get everything i want from that. But TBH, I think I won't even get the first one, never mind the others, and the 2am thing will have been a waste of time because the main collection will be available the next day anyway. At least it's the weekend for that one!
Garden Path and Nailed It won't be huge orders, and if I got everything I want from GLL it would be 9 polishes. They're all going to Stackry.
Alchemy are brilliant for Black Friday - I've never been charged customs from them, and the deals are generally awesome, so go for it! The new collection is very pretty.
