Thank you so much to Cassie at Shabby Makeup and More for giving me this sweet blog award! I will happily display this on my blog. :) The idea with these awards is to share some random facts about myself, answer a few questions, and award 7 more blogs. I think that these awards and tags are nice as it allows us all to "get to know each other" a bit better!
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass it along to 7 blog you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipient a note, telling them about the award
7 Things about myself:
- I am a morning person.
- I love to read. Mostly fantasy/fiction (think Twilight) but also "chick-lit" (currently reading the Pretty Little Liars series), and even the classics!
- I smile a lot. People always tell me that I am the most optimistic person they know.
- I love to exercise. Running is the best! I also hit the gym regularly and do yoga.
- I am a beverage/liquids person. I am always drinking something...be it coffee, tea, water, iced tea, etc. And, I love wine! What can I say, I am always hydrated, lol!
- I do not like to be cold. Good thing I live in the South. But, it is cold here now. I love the summers!
- My day job: I am a Speech-Language Pathologist.
1. Why did you create this blog?
It was actually my husband's idea! I was always reading other people's beauty blogs and watching YouTube. So, one day when I was at the computer reading, he said "you should do that honey"....and, I thought "good idea"! So, there ya go! :)
2. What kind of blog do you follow?
Primarily beauty blogs. But, also I like reading my friend's personal blogs, health and fitness blogs, celebrity gossip blogs (my brain-candy), and cooking blogs.
3. Favorite Makeup Brand
This is hard! Probably Stila or MAC. But, really I love so many (drugstore brands too!)

Dream brand (if I had unlimited budget): Gucci...but, alas, too pricey! Brands I wear every day: Express and bebe.
