Woo hoo! I got nominated for something!
I was nominated for this world by the amazing and lovely Lynne over at Bobs & Rouge. Even though I was totally lost at first, I was super excited! I guess this is a good way to get to know other bloggerse and get their names out there. So, I would LOVE to nominate a few others!! :)
Lynne also nominated PrettyLoved but I am going to nominate her as well cause I think she’s awesome. lol.
I have nominated these blogs because I really enjoy reading them and they are not only people who write well and take good photos, they are super friendly and have spent the time chatting with me which is amazing!
Lynne asked me 11 questions as well. So, I will gladly answer them the best I can!
1. What is the one gift you would really like?
Hmmmm. I don’t even know! The only thing that really came to mind is a nice vanity. But, I’m really looking forward to my husband making one for me. :) That way I will have my own space to do my hair and makeup! Other than that, I love books and workout gear. So, if anyone has any great book suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let me know! I mean, my birthday IS coming up soon! ;)
2. What do you look for in a blog?
Honestly, I look for a lot of the person. Their personality, their life, what makes them tick. Sure, great photos make your blog look great, your beauty reviews are awesome (I’ve learned a lot this way), DIY is great, but I am all about people’s lives! I write because I want people to be able to take my mistakes, accomplishments, or other experiences and learn from them! So, I guess I look to do the same thing when I go to other blogs.
3. What is your favourite place and why?
Oh boy. This is a very hard question to answer! I mean, my favorite place to eat? Favorite place to visit? There are so many “favorite places” depending on how you ask the question. But the first thing that popped into my head was this morning. I was laying in bed, my alarm went off to remind me it was time to get back to work, my puppy trying to squeeze in the middle of my husband and I, and I rolled over to sweetly hug my snoring husband. That’s probably my favorite place. Laying in bed with my husband, puppy, and my little baby growing in my belly. What’s better? When I fall asleep in his arms. Sounds a little mushy but hey, Lynne asked. That’s my answer. :)
4. What is your biggest dream?
I have a lot of dreams. lol. But right now, the biggest dream I would say that I have is to be a great inspiration and motivator in all aspects of my life. I know that there are many people that have motivated me and inspired me throughout my life and I would love to be one of those people for others as well.
5. What is the one thing that you hate most?
When people try to make you look bad for no reason. I think this is on my heart and mind right now simply because this morning someone decided to attack me via Facebook about a comment I wrote on my sister’s wall. I write exactly how I speak. And since my sister has know me for her 22 years of life, I am pretty sure she knows how I speak as well. Anyway, someone decided to tell me that what I said was messed up and continued to fight with me when I rephrased my sentence (although I didn’t feel I was in the wrong) and then brought my marriage into the situation. No. You do NOT talk about my marriage. 1. You don’t know me. 2. I don’t know you. 3. You don’t know my life. And 4. My life is none of your business. I guess you could say that’s also what I hate…people butting into your life when they have no right to, and when they attack my family. Ugh. Can you tell I am still a little heated? lol. I will always stand up for what I believe is right and I will not let anyone get bullied…for anything.
6. What is your favourite make-up brand?
Let’s see. Since about 2009, I have always been a MAC Cosmetics kind of gal. But since I started talking to my friend Raquel about makeup and seeing other bloggers and their makeup tips…I have ventured out a bit. Shopping at Ulta and Sephora has broadened my knowledge in makeup. I would have to say that besides MAC, I love Urban Decay. Especially when it comes to eye makeup.
7. What can you not live without?
Besides the usual oxygen, water, and food? ;P Other than that, I really could LIVE without everything else. But life wouldn’t be so enjoyable if I didn’t have my family. So, I guess you could say that I cannot live without my family. Whether they are thousands of miles away or sleeping next to me every night…I need my family in my life.
8. What are you addicted to?
Apparently social media. lol. My husband tells me that all the time….while he’s on the phone playing Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, Sim City, and Jungle Heat. How ironic. :P
9. What is your most important blogging goal for 2015?
To get better at it. Maybe to post a little more about things other people might be interested in. I know my life isn’t always so exciting. Maybe I could do a little more beauty stuff or fitness and health related posts. Also, I want to get better at taking photos. In general, I would like to get my voice out there.
10. What would you like to achieve in 2015?
