Holy moly, you guys! It was such a scramble to get everything done before I left for vacation; I was totally disconnected for a week at sea that I didn’t get the February Event Guide out in time for the first week of Feb. I’m so sorry! Will you forgive me? (Currently typing with Little Mermaid gel nail art from Zoom Mani that’s SO cute, but totally outgrown now and I’m on the struggle bus. Check them out!)
