Award Time :D

I really love award time.  xcluelessbeautyx wonderfully nominated and it’s great when out out the blue. Here is how it works…

The liebster award recognizes up-and-coming bloggers who have under 200 followers, it’s a way for all of us to get to know each other and allow our readers to get to know us a little better as well!

The rules are:

1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you. — DONE

2. Answer 11 questions your nominator asked. — DONE

3. Provide 11 fun and/or random facts about yourself. — Done

4. Nominate 10 bloggers (w/ less than 200 followers) that you feel deserve recognition! (Oh I thought we were sticking with the 11 theme) — Done

5. Inform the above bloggers that you have nominated them. — Will do once this goes live.

6. Post 11 questions for them to answer.– Done


My questions to answer…

1.) What is your favorite store? Sephora completely. 

2.) What is the one beauty item you could not live without? Hmmm this is actually a hard questions… I am going to say Moisturizer as I took for granted my skin years ago and NO MORE!! lol

3.) If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? I gotta say Pizza and you can make so many different kinds I don’t think I would ever get tired of it. 

4.) What is your proudest moment? Giving birth to my three sons in general. Most recently when I actually proved to myself I can successfully do makeup on others and it isn’t some wish or far off dream. I do have some natural talent there. 😀 

5.) If you could travel back in time to any moment what would that be? Oh wow great question. I want to say … Las Vegas in the 60’s. All the hedonism. All the fun and abandonment …well as long as I was on the “good” side. lol

6.) What three things would you bring to a desert island? Fifty Shades of Gray books, Sun tan lotion, and some wine. 

7.) Describe yourself in three words. Fun, loyal, and neurotic.

8.) Who is your celebrity crush? Currently it is between Kyle Schmidt and Benedict Cumberbatch. 

9.) Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? A black cat named Loki and a Golden retriever, black lab mix named Fudge (my son named him at four years old.)

10.) If you could live anywhere in the World, where would you live? Tasmania Australia. I have an ex who lives there and I stayed with him for six weeks and I fell in love with the place… not enough to marry him (ha) but I do miss the place. 

11.) What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? Always follow your heart/instincts. 


My random facts are …

  1. I always read half way through a book then the last two chapters as I can’t stand the suspense of not knowing the end. Then I skim the rest of the book for the good parts.
  2. I was named after the Rolling Stones song Angie and the Black Panther Angela Davis.
  3. I was just diagnosed as Bipolar II. I have a blog about it found here. (yes shameless plug but I want to de-stigmatize mental health issues and this is how I do it. I put a semi rational face to it.)
  4. I LOVE romantic movies even though the formula is always the same.
  5. I am a bit of a life nomad. I have done a lot of different jobs and have lots of big dreams.
  6. My life is an example of those romantic movie cliches. Over two years ago my husband and I reconciled after an eight month separation. He has been my best friend for fifteen years… we just lost sight of that. I feel blessed to have realized that before it was too late.
  7. I am addicted to Netflix.
  8. My full time job is as a social worker in one of the toughest fields investigating abuse and neglect of children.
  9. I love to talk about myself but I am finding these eleven facts to be difficult. I think it is the pressure of being original and unique but not too odd. So really fact 9 is I over analyze things.
  10. I can not WAIT for the next season of Scandal… oh wait I already said that in my random post from Sunday. Well I feel the same way about the tv shows Haven and Lost Girl
  11. When my children are grown I want to travel in a big RV around the US and Canada.


I tag… *disclaimer if you have over the amount the rule say and I tagged you I am sorry but I can’t figure out how you know. So I picked folks that looked pretty new to blogging. 😀

  1. Awesome answers! I have always wanted to go to Australia. While everyone else was shooting for the Bahamas or something I have always wanted to conquer my fear of the water and dive The Great Barrier Reef. 🙂
