Haii beautifuls.

I’m really, super-duper happy to be nominated for this award!!!! Like seriously. It made my day.

Maria Vole at Beauty On a Budget  was the one who tagged me, (along with a few other gorgeous peeps ;} ). Maria is SUCH a sweetheart, and I’m really happy she felt that I should deserve this award. It’s a nice feeling to know that people read your blog.

The whole purpose of this award is to get to know other bloggers, and it’s really fun to see what other people say!

HERE ARE THE 15 NOMINEES! EVERYONE CLAP!

Ashley at allthingsbeautyandashley.wordpress.com. Right off the bat, her reviews and tutorials are great. She is a very sweet, gorgeous, down-to-earth lady, that is so gracious and kind to her readers! I highly recommend you check her out, because her stuff is so fun to read (I can blog-surf for HOURS)! I’ve been following her for a while, and it’s been amazing watching her blog grow.

Pearls and Paris at pearlsandparis.wordpress.com. I’ve loved this blog for a while! The daily inspirations pics are really…inspirational. Sweet. She also has posts on everything, from food, to music, to humor, to travel. And of course…beauty! If you’re looking for a chic, stylish blog, go and click over to Pearls and Paris.

Olive at eyehavealotoffeelings.wordpress.com . This girl has some of the most unique, beautiful eye looks ever! She is so beautiful, too. I mean seriously. Her posts are also very pleasant, witty, and inspiring. Her makeup looks give me sooo many ideas for how to do my own!

Christina at lusciousandlovely19.wordpress.com . She’s sweet, she’s pretty, she has great fashion reviews, it’s all perfection. I think she’d make a great magazine editor, personally. Her writing’s got a certain voice that just draws you in.

Laurell at paint-me-pretty.com. This blog is absolute perfection! All her posts are extremely well-done and are a perfect mix of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle.

S. at rockinaroundthefrock.wordpress.com . I’ve been reading this blog for quite some time. The author is sooo sassy and charming…just reading her views on fashion, celebs, and other things make me giggle! I love her DIYs too; she is extremely creative on repurposing fashion! If you’re looking for a fashionable-big-sister-you-never-had, head over to Rockin’ Around The Frock.

Deb at debelloyd.com. THIS GIRL HAS CLASS, let me tell you! She’s an artist, a beauty fanatic, and also has some great posts on lifestyle. Her most recent post, the “Face of the Day”, is so flawless and positively lovely..you have to see it!

Tori at notoriousbeautyblog.com . This girl’s blog is all about variety, so you’re never reading about the same ‘ol thing. I love it.

Colleen at brokeforbeauty.com. In her words, she posts “thoughtful reviews for the beauty-obsessed” which is totally accurate. She’s really thorough with them too, so if you’re thinking about buying a product, pop over to her blog first to do some research.

Whit at uglywhitty.com . Can anyone say glamorous? She says she’s juggling kids and her career, but she looks so flawless and fierce! In my opinion, she’s the Contour Queen….with a blog like a cupcake, sprinkled with many different things about life, love, and of course, beauty.

Popette at kissmeunderthepinkblossomtree.wordpress.com. She’s poetic, beautiful, wonderfully sweet, and has a blog full of sadness, dreams, life, and her journey of self. She’s the girl with the pink blossoms in her hair, standing in the park with her parasol. :}

Natalie and Kristen at thekingdomofbohemia.com . These girls have a wonderful taste for fashion and beauty. Their posts are so beautiful and colorful…I just adore their styles. When I look at their looks, I am inspired to create something just as beautiful.

Christine at krissy00417.wordpress.com. If you’re into your high-end beauty products, go and check out Christine’s blog. It’s full of reviews on luxurious, amazing products that are on my “When I save up” wish-list!

? at blogginginagrayarea.wordpress.com. I like nail polish. Do you? WELL, THIS BLOG TAKES NAIL POLISH TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL. All the colors are gorgeous and completely unique…making this blog stand out from all the other mediocre nail polish blogs.

Olivia at classygirlwithcurls.wordpress.com. Helpful, pretty, stylish, fun. These are all words to describe this girl! I like seeing what outfits she puts together and her back-to-school essentials. She’s so nice and bubbly!

NOW FOR 7 INTERESTING THINGS: 

  1. Because I’m Alutiiq, or Aleut, a type of native Alaskan, my great-grandmother gives everyone a native name when they’re born. Mine is Saangapaluq, which means swallow-bird, one of my favorite animals!
  2. I don’t have a religion. Seriously. For a while I though I was Buddhist-Hindu, but now I’m completely unsure what I am.
  3. Right now I am in loooove with Lana Del Rey and her music. It’s so sultry and I adore the lyrics: “My old man is a tough man, but, he’s got a soul as sweet as blood red jam, and he shows me, he knows me, every inch of my tar black soul.”
  4. I honestly wish I was brave enough to wear cool eyeshadow and eyeliner like some girls…you know, totally crazy, glam, sparkly and eye-catching. But, face it, darlings. I’m a lip-girl at heart. But I’m trying to break out of my comfort zone!!!
  5. My girl-crush is a tie between Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway. I love both of their classic, effortless styles, and all the roles they’ve played! If either one of them asked me to marry them, I’d totally say yes. HOW COULD YOU NOT???
  6. I make friends really easily, and am very trusting. If you break that trust, I make a wall though. Not just any wall, but a wall made out of bricks, titanium, and Nokia phones, so you’re gonna have to work to break it down.
  7. Blogging is one of my biggest joys. I’m so thankful for meeting everyone I’ve met, you don’t even know!

Thank you SO much, guys!

Now, if you excuse me, I’m going to go on a short jog. ;} Ta ta!

“Tagged In” Blog Award

I was tagged in this by the super-sweet, beautiful Popette. ❤ Love her!

image65.jpg

^Aww poo the image didn’t work.. NEVERMIND, guys!

Okay, so the rules for this award are as follows:

* Enusre to post these following rules
* Share eleven facts about yourself, including an image to go along with it
* Answer the eleven questions allocated to you
* Decide on eleven new questions and ensure your nominees answer them
* Make sure you notify your nominees of their award nomination 

But before anything else, I’d like to say how much I’m thankful! I’m honestly flustered..I don’t even have a speech prepared!!

Ahem, ahem.

I’d like to thank my mommy and daddy for encouraging me, my friends for supporting me in tough times, and my followers (you, there!) for commenting, liking, chatting, and creating this happy, bubbly community on my blog! ❤ I love you all!

Here’s some facts about me: Image

1. When I have a secret, I practically have to super-glue my mouth closed to keep it.

2. I’m FAR TOO TRUSTING OF PEOPLE OKAY. I think everyone’s super-dependable and warm up to others fairly quickly. :/

3. I love all girly things! Unicorns, ruffles and lace, pink, cute decor, puffy, fluffy stuff, ect.

4. My least favorite food is meatloaf. THINK about it..mushy animal flesh in a bread-loaf shape. It probably doesn’t help that I’m a vegetarian! Bleckkkkk.

5. I adore the words “cream” and “delicate”.

6. One of my most narcissic dreams is to be a model. A MODEL. A super-model. But I’d also love to be a fashion-designer or an artist. And a professional dancer.

7. I LOVE SCIENCE.

8. I think bubblegum is one of the strangest flavors. It’s not honey-ish, or vanilla-ish, or anything-ish…it’s just NOT a natural flavor! It’s weird.

9. I hate bronzers that fade away quickly and leave orange splotches on your face! Ughh it makes me mad.

10. My favorite eyeshadow is Urban Decay’s “Maui Wowie”.

11. AND MY SIGNATURE LIPSTICK IS MAC’S “HOT GOSSIP.” Mwah. Done.

And before I announce the nominees, Popette left me some questions to answer! Here goes.

1. What is your favourite hobby? Dancing! I’ve been on a dance team for four years.

2. If you could choose a favourite piece of attire, what would it be? My leather jacket paired with my girliest dress!


3. What is your favourite scent? 
Freshly cut grass, warm vanilla, the smell of pumpkin pie being baked at Halloween, or that sweet smell after it rains, laced with woodsmoke. Woodsmoke, to me, smells like home!

4. Do you know what true love is? True love isn’t always romantic, and it’s never perfect. It’s just that click, that “right” feeling when you love someone who loves you.


5. What is your favourite piece of advice? 
In middle school, keep your legs closed, your face clean, and your mouth open to say what’s on your mind.


6. Do you enjoy chocolate too? 
WITH MY HEART.


7. A place you dream of living at? 
Italy, or in a adorable, vintage house in Corvallis, Oregon.


8. What is you fear? 
People hating me.


9. Do you want to learn any new things? 
Yes! All the time!


10. What is your favourite meal? 
Salad or pasta!


11. What is your favourite colour? 
Blue! Or pink! Or mint! Or purple!

NOW, HERE’S MY 11 QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

  1. What makes you feel beautiful? 
  2. If you could pick your own name, what would it be?
  3. What’s your favorite makeup item and brand?
  4. Cake or pie?
  5. Who ya gonna call? 
  6. In a fashion battle between Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway, who would win? 
  7. What’s your worst makeup moment?
  8. If you could be an animal, which would you choose? 
  9. What’s your least-favorite song of 2012-2013?
  10. If you had to bring ONLY ONE makeup product with you to a deserted island, what would it be? 
  11. Do you have any constructive criticism for my blog? :}  

FINALLY…..I PRESENT TO YOU, THE NOMINEES! (The rules didn’t say how many, so I chose seven!)

  1. The Painted Lady!
  2. Classy Girl With Curls!
  3. Pink Astronaut!

The One Lovely Blog Award

Image

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” image to your post.
  3. Share 7 things about you.
  4. Pass the award on to seven nominees
  5. Include this set of rules
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs. 

The person that nominated me, the lovely and super-sweet Divine Rush (I thank you SO, SOOO much, girly!), chose to explain why she chose those certain bloggers. And I though ‘Hey, that sounds like a perfectly delightful idea to me.’ So I’m going to do it too!

BUT BEFORE WE BEGIN, here are seven things about me:

1. I looooove any lip product that smells and tastes nice.

2. I can’t stand people that smack their food when they chew…blegghhh.

3. My first high-end eyeshadow was “Sunkissed” by the Sephora Collection, which is sadly discontinued now. But I loved it back then!

4. Blue, purple and pink are my favorite colors. But I also really like green! I just like colors. :}

5. If I had to choose one food to live off of, it would be soup. Or pasta. Or bread. MMmm carbs.

6. I love writing dorky poems and making up fun words, or pulling weird faces!

7. Blogging is one of my favorite pastimes.

BAM. Now onto the nominees! 

Painted Lady. She is such an elegant blog, that I loooove to read. If you want info on all things beauty, check her out pronto! She’s such a sweet, gracious beauty, with great insights!

Pearls and Paris. God, I love her blog! She’s so trendy and “with-it”, and she has the cutest daily inspirations! Her voice totally engages her readers, and she has a lot of great stuff on…well…everything! Beauty, music, news, shopping, travel, humor, ect.

Aavicenna. She is the QUEEN, you guys. The queen of scents! The connoisseur! Her blogs are mostly scent reviews: thorough, honest-to-god, SUPER-descriptive scent reviews. Thinking about buying a scent but you aren’t sure? Stop by and check her out!

Beauty Nerd Marisha. I think I first started following Marisha when we had just entered the whole blogging world. When we first started. When we were little blossoms! AND NOW, she’s grown so much! She’s witty, engaging, hilariously helpful, and just a joy to read! When you read her posts, it’s like you’re chatting with a best friend, gossiping and quipping about girls and their “foundation masks” or brown lipstick and why you think it’s amazing. Just..love ya, Marisha! I hope I get your autograph before you’re famous and all ;}

The Beauty Cloud. This girl makes amazing reviews on makeup!!! I also love how she shares new trends or fashion pieces; it’s like having a narrator inside a fashion mag!

Janine Russell. She is just a phenomenal writer. She is wise, and ambitious, and smart, and funny, and really pretty on top of that. She stands up for what’s right, and I totally respect her. You go, girl!

Rockin’ Around The Frock. Even though I am a bit new to her blog, I am totally a fan. She’s like the glam, chic, sophisticated older sister I always wanted. She has this sort of style that I adore, and posts the best things on fashion and beauty. I’d say she posts a healthy mix of both. And she’s funny too. Really funny. Like “fall-out-of-my-chair-laughing-about-Brittany-Spear’s-denim-dress-and-choking-on-my-soda” funny. I love her quips.

And that’s it guys! Thanks so much. ❤ Peace out!
