My First Blogger's Award!

I know that I told you yesterday to stop by because I would be recapping more of our Annimoon trip... well I told a little white lie! I think breaking it up may be more fun and it will give me plenty of time to write more about our get-a-way! Sorry to have disappointed anyone {wink wink}.

One of the main reasons I decided to break up the recaps was because last Thursday I was awarded with my very first Blogger's Award, The Laine Blogger Award! Mrs. Meghan over at More from Meg nominated me and I feel incredibly honored! She is such a fun loving sweet gal and we've already discussed how we know we'd be the best of friends if we lived close to one another! My thoughts? We could still be besties regardless of the distance!! I can't thank her enough for thinking so highly of me and I am excited to answer the questions attached to the award!!! Before I get started though, I just want to thank all of my readers for reading my daily life rambles and for your sweet, supportive, and inspirational comments! Y'all make up a huge reason of why I keep coming back everyday to write!! I wish I could give each of you BIG hugs and smooches!!

Without further adieu, here are the questions and answers...

1. What is your current beauty obsession?
I think I am going to have to go with Nude lipstick and glosses! I have never been a huge lip color gal and as much as I love the new trend of a red lip I just don't think I pull it off well! My go to and absolute fave is a Nude lip! I use Palladio Lip Color in Nude and I am a huge fan of Bare Minerals lip gloss in Sugar Cookie!

2. What is one beauty item you wished you owned?
Really good hair extensions! I have long hair yes but I think adding extensions and making it longer would be a blast! I've never bought any because I change my hair color too often and feel like it would be a huge waste of money if I bought them in one color and a month later changed my own to something else!

3. What kind of posts are your favorite to read and write?
My favorite posts to read are honest posts. Posts where you know the writer put their heart and soul into it, almost like they were writing in their own personal journal! I also like to read posts where you learn more about the writer and their personality! It gives the reader something to connect to which I love. I don't have a favorite type of post that I like to write. I like sharing my highs and lows with my readers and maybe bragging about my sweet puppy, Baby Reef!

4. What inspired you to become a blogger? 
Honestly, my friend AND old roomie Kelly over at Mrs. In Training. She started blogging at least 3 years ago and I did in fact hop on the blogging train back then because of her, but never invested time into doing it frequently. Several months ago I started reading more blogs and just thought so many of them I came across were so fun and I wanted to be a part of that fun! So I started back up and haven't stopped and I've met some incredible ladies along the way!

5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now?
I am still rocking my French Shellac Manicure that I got when we were in Charleston two weeks ago! Looks a little heinous up close but I'm still impressed with how long it has lasted and how good it does still look, from a distance at least!

Now I get to choose 5 really stellar ladies to nominate for the Laine Blogger Award! This is crazy hard and I hate having to choose but here goes...

And the Nominee's Are...

Kelly @ Mrs. In Training 
Tyah @ Humble Haro Abode
Shannon @ Sincerely Shannon
Lori @ A Crazy Walk on the Safe Side
Rachael @ All Things Beautiful 

Hope you lovely ladies are having a lovely Tuesday!!! Now that I am in my new position at work I can't blog stalk as often! I am trying to a free moments in my day but I hate trying to comment on a post on my phone! I promise to stop by and visit everyone when I can! If it seems I'm not loving y'all much don't take it personally! I think my first post new job celebratory gift will be an IPad so I can blog stalk all night in bed and still be spending time with the hubby!!



  1. I love a good honest blog post too! Nothing like learning about someone thru one of their own stories. Congrats on the award, you deserve it girl! :)

  2. Awww, I'm so honored!! Thank you so much for nominating my blog.. it means the world to me! You definitely deserve this award! I always love checking out your blog, hearing your stories, and seeing your beautiful pics! You rock! Thanks again darling!


  3. Thanks for the sweet words bloggy bestie!! :)

  4. thank you so much, lauran! you are too sweet for nominating my blog!

    and i agree, i am loving nude/light colored lips... i am on the hunt for a good peach color right now!

  5. You are too sweet! thanks so much lauren!!

    I also just got a french shellac manicure for the first time and it definitely lasts longer than none-shellac but was only about a week and a half. I'll have to try just a solid color next time and see if that lasts longer.

  6. Aw, you're sweet friend, I am so excited that you got into blogging so that we can better keep up! Xoxoxoxox

  7. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy 5 in 1 cavitation machine and 6 in 1 cavitation machine. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic and Beauty Supply Online websites.
