Honesty Time: This Awards Post is Ridiculously Long

16 Aug

I’ve been nominated for several awards since I started this blog, butttt I procrastinated a lot on doing them. Sorry!!! But I really, really appreciate the nominations, it means a lot to me knowing that my blog is read and enjoyed by awesome people 🙂 Warning, this post is a bit of a novel! 

Liebster Award(s) from Gothicbeeza and The Day Dreaming, Candy Eating, Red Headed Bookworm. Thank you both so much for the nomination, I am a huge fan of your blogs! From what I can gather, this award recognizes blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

The rules are:

You must link back the person who nominated you.
You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

My questions from Gothicbeeza are:

1) What is your go-to colour of lipstick? I’m just getting into lipstick, but I’d say matte coral, I love how summery it looks (not too girly and not too hooker-esque).

2) Do you prefer buying your beauty products online or in-store? Online because I can find good deals, but I can swatch things in-store…hmm. HMMM.

3) Have you ever bought anything “limited edition”? Probably, somewhere, out in the great expanse of space.

4). Which do you prefer: Liquid liner or Kohl liner? Liquid, because I’m getting better at it! It used to be a huge mess :\

5) Is there any celeb whose style you covet? Not really, but I admire Lucy Hale’s girly edginess, if that makes any sense.

7) If you could start your own line of cosmetics, what would you call it? Tough questions! I think I’d have a little shop called Olive’s Oddities with all sorts of scarves and jewelry and bits and bobs and makeup…

8) Do you go out of your way to buy cruelty free products? In general I like to buy cruelty-free, but I won’t pass on an amazing product.

9) What makeup items are currently sitting in your handbag? Mirror (does that count?), Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Raspberry Blush. That’s it, I swear. I don’t carry makeup around with me, I get shy about touching up in public.

10) Smokey or Neutral? Neutral smokey. See what I did there? 😉

And from Lindsey:

1. Are you a wheat bread or white bread person? My mother buys wheat bread, so definitely white.

2. Name a book or movie character you would marry on the spot. This is SO DIFFICULT, you have no idea. Loki, and we would rule the world. Or maybe Dean Winchester, because then we could hunt demons and monsters together (dream job right there). Ugh. Come back to me.

3. What is your favorite part about yourself (does not have to be a physical part)? I am appreciative of my ability to write pretty things. I also love how pale and freckly I am, tan does not suit me.

4. What made you decide to start a blog? I like writing pretty things.

5. Name the first song that comes to mind. We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel, I listened to it in the car a few minutes ago. Yes, I did indeed sing along. Yes, I know all the words. Yes, I realize how sad that is.

6. What is something you wish for but know it is an impossibility? Loki and Dean Winchester to magically appear at my house and tell me the world needs saving/destroying and I’m the only one who can save/destroy humanity. Yep. This is what I dream about.

7. What is your favorite season? Fall. It’s pretty and I don’t have to mow the lawn.

8. What is the first book that comes to mind? Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Love it.

9. Who is someone you depend on? My lovely friends. Bef, Juju, you know who you are.

10. What quote inspires you? I’m not really an inspirational quote person, but I love “He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.” Douglas Adams is a genius for describing my life so well.

11. If you could change your name, what would it be? I’m actually ok with my name, but I’d go for something snappy, like an action hero, or something ethereal. Maybe I’d be a superhero. I dunno! Great questions!

If I nominated you for this award (below), here are your questions:

1) If you have/had a nickname, what would it be?

2) Who is your fictional character crush? I know you have one 😀

3) Who was the last person you talked to about something important?

4) Which do you prefer, music or books?

5) If you could cut your hair any length/style and be guaranteed to look amazing, which style would you choose?

6) What is your least favorite color and why?

7) Would you rather be 6 inches shorter or a foot taller? (sorry for non-metric measurements :\)

8) If you were only able to use one makeup product for the rest of your life, which would it be?

9) Are you a risk taker?

10) Name the nearest green object.
