My First Award!

Today Stephanie at The Polish Diary tweeted me to say she nominated me for two blog awards - thanks Stephanie! So exciting to have my first awards so early after starting this blog!

The first award is the Sunshine Award.

Here are the rules for this award:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award
  • Write a post about it
  • Pass it on to 10 bloggers who you think really deserve it and send them message to let them know

And here is the second award!

The rules for this award are:
  • Link back to the person who passed you the award
  • Complete the form below
  • Share 7 random things about yourself
  • Award 15 blogs
  • Drop them a line and tell them about it

This is the form to be completed:

Name you favorite color:
It kind of depends on the item, my mood etc but I do love red, the brighter the better :D
Name you favorite song:
 I don't have just one favourite... I have hundreds, depending on how I feel at the time. 
Name you favorite dessert:
What makes you mad?
How long do you have???
When you're upset you...
Go quiet, stop eating, stew, then crack up over something minor and cry my eyes out
Your favorite pet:
My cats Merlin and Poppy

Black or white?

Your biggest fear is... :
That something bad could happen to my son.

Your best feature is... :
My eyes.

Everyday attitude:
Friendly, smiley, tries to please everyone

What is perfection?
True perfection doesn't exist. It's a concept we torture ourselves with unnecessarily:  'good enough' is much easier to achieve and is just as satisfying.
Guilty Pleasure:
Nail polish, chocolate, singing loudly on my own in the car, writing until 3am

NOW 7 random things about me:
1. I'm double jointed: my elbows and knees bend the wrong way
2. I am scared of clowns, deep water and heights
3. I love post-apocalyptic/dystopian/sci-fi/fantasy/vampire movies
4. I'm allergic to rabbits, superglue, latex and mould
5. I love the smell of coconut, cherry, rose, cinammon and patchouli
6. I'm a night owl; I can't stand to go to bed before midnight, no matter how tired I am
7. I'm named after a horse: my dad's favorite brood mare!

I would like to pass these awards on to the following bloggers. There are more than 15: never mind eh? All of these (and they are in NO PARTICLAR ORDER) are people who have been particularly welcoming, friendly, helpful or inspirational to me in my quest to join the beauty blogging world, which can sometimes be rather cliquey and unwelcoming towards 'newbies' (plus their blogs are just nice to look at and interesting to read) and I've included them here as a way of saying thank you!
