TAG: The Sunshine Award

I have to admit, I'm pretty excited to have been tagged by Ashley over at GreenBeautyLife. If you aren't yet familiar with her blog, you should really check it out! She's a girl after my own heart, trying to go green with her cosmetic choices and she does some excellent reviews on products. Honestly, I could read her blog all day.

As I've just gotten back into blogging, I don't have as many posts as I would like, so what better a way to let you know a bit more about me to add this award post and also introduce you to some other blogs you may not have come across yet.

Here are the rules for the Sunshine Award:
  • Share 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.
  • List 11 bloggers. They should be bloggers you believe deserve the recognition.
  • Post 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer, and let all of them know that they have been nominated.

    11 Random Facts About Me:
    1. I'm a recovering perfectionist. My mantra is: I'm not perfect, as that's okay, as long as I'm doing  the best I can.
    2. I have seen every episode ever aired of the "Real Housewives" franchise.
    3. I hate the taste of beer. I'm all about champagne.
    4. Some of my favorite jewelry pieces are from Tori Spelling's HSN line.
    5. I'm obsessed with makeup, but most days I don't even wear it.
    6. I'm a brunette, my husband is a blond, and my baby girl is a redhead...every time we walk into a room it's like the opening line of a joke.
    7. I'm a bit of a hoarder.
    8. I do most of the reading in the bath, even on my iPad and Kindle.
    9. I'm kind of a know-it-all and I hate that about myself.
    10. I have over 50 pairs of shoes.
    11. My favorite sound in the entire world is my baby girl's laugh.
    11 Questions from Ashley:
    1. What is your favorite article of clothing that you own?
    Tough question! I have a lot of clothes. And I certainly have a favorite pair of shoes, but if I had to pick a favorite article of clothing it would be my Michael Kors black leather motorcycle jacket with lots of silver hardware. It looks good with almost everything!
    2. Favorite place you've ever been?
    Venice, Italy on my honeymoon. I swoon just thinking about it.
    3. Favorite scent?
    Another tough one. I also have a ton of perfume. I love Dior, Hypnotic Poison and the original Burberry.
    4. Would you rather have a chocolately dessert or fruity one?
    Chocolately, all day, any day. But add some raspberry and that's just sinful!
    5. Name a weird habit that you just can't shake!
    I save old voicemails. I want to be able to hear people's voices even after they're gone.
    6. What color are your nails right now?
    They're completely bare at the moment. I wash my hands so frequently at the moment!
    7. Name one beauty product that you continuously repurchase.
    Avon's lipgloss in "Magnificent Mauve."
    8. Favorite movie/TV show?
    For years it has been "What Not to Wear" so I guess I will have to find a new one soon. Heartbreaking!
    9. Favorite type of food?
    I love Italian food. Except pizza. I'm not a big fan of pizza.
    10. How big is your makeup collection?
    So big! It fills my bathroom and spills out into my bedroom. And you can find more in more purse and pretty much every room in the house. It just keep growing and growing.
    11. Favorite place to go shopping?
    I'd love to go to Nordstrom any day for the atmosphere, but I love JC Penney's affordable prices and trendy styles.
