transatlantic flights... & a giveaway

Oh my goodness - I am getting SO excited... I leave the country headed to Nice, France
TOMORROW!
{ via }
One of the <few> perks of being a grad student in biomedical research is that scientists know how to throw a legit conference - so I will rubbing elbows with premier frog researchers, and presenting my findings, all while hanging out along the French Riviera. 
Hmmm - that doesn't suck!
Seriously, on the conference schedule is a dance party... 
Um yea... can't wait to join the nerd fest that that is going to be!

Don't you worry your pretty little heads though, I have some amazing blogging buddies who are going to be filling in while I am away (peppered with some of my own content - I don't know how to quit you guys)

These ladies are bringing the awesome - 
I might have to step up my blogging game when I return after a week of their amazingness.

Also, to buy your love, I am giving away a set of Essie's new Fall collection nail colors.
Score a mini four pack including: Stylenomics, Don't Sweater It, Skirting The Issue and Head Mistress
