Sunshine Award

October 20, 2013
I'm proud to say that I've been nominated by two awesome bloggers, Areeba and Erica, for a Sunshine Award.  It means a lot to be nominated by these ladies, because I really respect them both as bloggers!  Not to mention that they have the best personalities and I've enjoyed getting to "know" the both of them through our blogging adventures.

The sunshine award is an award given to those who inspire us and bring sunshine into our lives.

There are a few simple rules:
*Include the award logo in your blog post
*Link to the person who nominated you
*Answer 10 questions about yourself
*Nominate other bloggers

Here are my questions from Areeba @ I Have a Messy Bun:

If you win a lottery, what's the first thing you're going to buy?  This one is a no brainer!  I would pay off all of my college loans and live debt-free.

What is the colour you hate most?  Pea green.  It reminds me of illness.

If you could become best friend with one celebrity, who it could be? Natalie Portman.  She's smart, a talented actress, has great style, and just seems like a fun, positive person to be around.

What's your biggest shopping pet peeve?  That it is so hard for me to find pants long enough to fit my long legs.  No high-waters for me, thank you!  

One thing that you love most about yourself.  I love that I am hard-working and know that I can succeed when I give things my all, which is 110%.

What was the first thing you read today?  My e-mails. 

Have you ever played a prank on someone? What was it?  I'm sure I've played more than one prank on someone, but the first one that comes to mind is that my pals and I had one of my friends convinced he was color blind.  He still laughs about it even though it happened years ago.

What's your favourite make up product right now?  I adore the neutral shades in my Tarte Aqualillies Palette.

Where do you see yourself after 5 years?  This question is a little scary to me, but I hope that I have a good job and maybe even some kids.

What's the song you can listen 2k times?  "Say it Ain't So" by Weezer.  I'm sure I have listened to it more than 2k times in my lifetime.  

Who is your favourite superhero?  Spiderman played by Tobey Macguire.

Here are my questions from Erica @ Diary of a Trendaholic:

What is your favorite movie?  Gosh, I have so many movies I love that it's hard to pick just one.  I'll stick with one of my favorite movies which is Garden State.

How long does your daily makeup/beauty routine take?  It depends on the look I'm going for, but only the makeup part takes about 15 minutes most of the time.  

What is your favorite way to spend your free time/what is your ideal afternoon?  Shopping, reading a book or magazine, blogging, hanging out with a friend, or going to a movie.

Who is your celebrity crush?  I've had one on Gerard Butler ever since seeing Machine Gun Preacher.

What is your favorite holiday?  It used to be Halloween, but now I'm leaning more towards Christmas because I get to see my sisters then and I don't on Halloween!

What nail polish color are you loving right now?  Le Metier de Beaute's Saucy Plum

If you were to win a FREE shopping spree what store would you choose to go nuts in?  Target because they have a little of everything.  :)

What is your favorite novel?  Gone With the Wind

What is your current beauty/makeup obsession?  Ombre nails!!  They look so cool!

If you could only wear one color eye shadow for the rest of your life what color would you wear?  I want to say purple, but I might regret that when I'm 80, so I'll stick with something neutral.  

My 10 questions:

1) What's your favorite brand of makeup overall?
2) What's the most fun thing you've done in the past two weeks?
3) Name something that you are saving up for.
4) What do you hope to accomplish this fall?
5) Do you have a workout routine?  If so, what is it?
6) Describe one of your pet peeves.
7) Which celebrity do you think is very stylish?
8) How do you motivate yourself?
9) What upcoming movie are you dying to watch?
10)  What is something about your blog that you are proud of?
