Woman Seeking: The Creative Blogger Award πŸ†

Thanks to Lipstick & Lightsabers and Honestly Positive Lifestyle, I was nominated for the Creative Blogger Award! Each of these blogs are great, and I encourage you to take a moment to check them out. Thanks so much ladies! I was nominated quite a while ago, but I finally have time (and Internet service) to upload this post! 

The rules of the award are:

  • Thank and post the link of the person who nominated you (lol I’m sad this had to be made a rule!)
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
  • Nominate 5 blogs
  • Pass on the rules

Some …fun?..facts about me aaare:

  1. I crunch all of my chips before I eat them. If it’s an individual sized bag I just crinkle the whole thing up, or if it’s a large bag (or at a gathering or picnic or something) I will portion my serving onto a plate and then smash them with my fingers. I don’t crunch Pringles, however. I think this may be a leftover habit from my days with braces? No clue!
  2. My favorite movie is Ever After, even though normally I don’t like Drew Barrymore. I’ve seen it countless times and it has yet to get old. It’s romantic and smart and sassy wi subtle humor and just oh so great. 
  3. I love using the 😩 emoji! It’s so dramatic and over the top! It’s probably one of my most used. 
  4. I’m a huge dog person. I’m not anti-cat, mind you, but I definitely prefer dogs. I’m an animal lover in general, actually. I also like horses, turtles, and hedgehogs. I’m hoping to maybe get a dog in a couple of months, but I have to make sure I have the time it deserves first. Be realistic about pets, folks! 
  5. My preferred (daytime) tea is Irish Breakfast Tea from Twinings. I like it straight, but I usually add a touch of creamer/almond milk, and sometimes a half a packet of sugar. I try to start off my day with green tea because, ya know, health…but when I need the caffeine or sweetness this is what I grab. 

So that’s a little bit more about me! It’s not beauty related, but I thought it was fun to fill out and hopefully fun to read. I’ve decided to tag some blogs I’ve been loving recently. Not all do these are beauty related, but they deserve some love! If you are one of the blogs I nominated and are reading this, no pressure! I simply wanted to inform my readers of your awesome blog and send some good vibes.  Those blogs are:

Feeding The Heart

Bitsy Besty

Life With Tisha

Made From Beauty

With All My Affecttion

Check them out, and list some of your favorites blogs or fun facts about yourself in the comments!

Woman Seeking: The Liebster Award πŸ†

I was nominated by Lightsabers and Lipstick to do the Liebster Award! I am so happy to be nominated, and the opportunity to share my favorite new blogs! I’ve seen this award going around, and thought it was a really fun thing to do. This comes at the perfect time, because if you follow my blog you know that I didn’t put out a post as I normally would on Thursdays. Between work and getting ready for the tri and life, I was just too exhausted and didn’t have any back up posts to use in place of a fresh piece. So I’m back this week, and may even throw in an extra post to even things out! We’ll see. 

Here were my questions:

1. What are two makeup products that you can’t live without?

I’d have to say Benefit’s The Porefessional primer and mascara (no specific kind). Not that I wear makeup everyday, but when I do, those are always staples. I always put on primer before BB Cream, Foundation, or even tinted moisturizer, and the Porefessional is my favorite. And as much as I love lip products, it would feel weird to wear lip anything but no mascara, but it wouldn’t feel weird to wear mascara and no lip product!

2. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

I saw this answer on Instagram or somewhere once and I thought it was so clever, so I’ll try to mimic it here – I would chose salad. Not only because I do love salad, but also because salad is so vague. There is garden salad, Caesar salad, fruit salad, pasta salad, Greek salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, potato salad…you can pretty much make anything into some form of salad. Loophole!

3. If you could switch places with any character in and book or movie, who would it be? Why?

Id switch places with Danielle from Ever After, simply because it’s my favorite movie

4. What’s your favorite drink at Starbucks?

An iced soy chai tea latte. I like the hot version, too! 

5. What is your favorite guilty pleasure tv show?

Mob Wives. It’s ridiculous, and stupid reality tv, and just…ridiculous. And I love it. It’s not my favorite show, but definitely a guilty pleasure

6. If you could drop everything and travel somewhere right now, where would it be?

This is SO hard for me to pick, but as of right now, this moment, I’d have to say Bali. 

7. What would make your perfect pizza?

I like a non tomato sauce pizza. Maybe a fresh Margherita pizza? 

8. What fictional character do you want to marry or be best friends with?

I used to have a crush on Demetri from Anastasia, does that count?

9. Do you have any pets? If not do you want any?

No I don’t have any animals (although my parents have a dog!). I love animals and would love one of my own, but I just don’t have the time an animal deserves.

10. If you could have one super power what would it be?

Again, an answer I’m totally stealing from I don’t know where – the power of refill. Hungry? Refill plate. Tired? Refill energy. Late? Refill time. Annoyed with someone? Refill their bladder haha

11. What Disney character do you most realate to?

Max Goof…he’s cool, awkward, independent but still loves his family, and a little cynical at times but wants to embrace the wonderfull! 


I didn’t play by the rules completely, because I had a hard time figuring out of the blogs had less than 200 or not, so I’m just nominating or mentioning a few that I would recommend checking out!
