Liebster award tag post

The rules for this award are as follows:

  • Post 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer 11 questions from your nominator.

11 Facts about me.  Lets see.

  1. Skittles make me happy.
  2. I have Anxiety pretty bad, and based on stories from my mother I’ve had it since I was a baby, well the first noticeable signs were at three. I remember anxious feelings as young as 7.
  3. I had hip surgery when I was 23. I had a hip impingement which means that my joint was egg shaped, instead of round.  My hip still hurts quite often and I can’t do as much as I’d like to.
  4. Heights make me nervous. So much that I don’t quite looking out of my bedroom window.
  5. I am terrified of the dark.  More often than not I sleep with the lights on.
  6. I love reading, but I hadn’t started reading till after high school.
  7. I HATE being told what to do, so much that I was inappropriately angry and the guy in the tacobell window told me to “drive safe”.
  8. I am anti social, I would rather spend my evenings at home with a book, and my cats then go out to the bar.
  9. I babysit… A lot.  I have been babysitting since I was 12 and have always spent more time babysitting then hanging out with friends.
  10. My niece is my best friend, even if she is only 10
  11. My nephew is amazing too, but he doesn’t across town so I can’t see him everyday.

These were great questions! Some of them really made me think. Finally, here are mine for my wonderful nominees:


  1. What is the most gutsy thing you have ever done (and are willing to share)?
    Well I’m about as gutsy as a deflated balloon. So I guess climbing over a fence to stand behind a waterfall??
  2. Describe your dream life. What does your daily routine look like?
    Honestly, I love my life right now.  Sure I’d love to live in a house on the beach with big windows, and tons of sunlight. But as far as routine goes, I don’t mind waking up at 5 (or 6) spending my day with the kids, even when I have to make extra trips to school because someone forgot something, then quiet evenings at home.
  3. Are you a coffee or a tea person?
    Tea, I tried to be a coffee drinker, because I am as impressionable as a toddler, and everyone drinks coffee, but I don’t like the taste of it.  But when I got sick once I was told to drink tea and it was great.
  4. Why did you first get into blogging?
    Initially it was to try and work through and open up about my anxiety, because I can tell strangers on the internet and not have to see the pity on their faces.  But I keep it safe by talking about makeup… and it’s the best thing ever!
  5. Where are you currently living? In a smallish town in Michigan, with an Amazing beach.
  6. What is your favorite thing to do on a lazy afternoon?
    Read or Watch Youtube videos
  7. What is your current skin or beauty routine?
    Morning I wash with Oz Naturals ocean mineral cleanser, Oz Natural super youth eye serum, then Formula 10.0.6 seriously shine free moisturizer, then what ever make up I choose.  Evening I was with Formula 10.0.6 best face forward cleanser, Valentia glow eye cream, and formula 10.0.6 pm perfector.
  8. Are you a sweet or a savory person? /What is your favorite dessert/dish?
    Sweet!  I love sugar, probably too much, I swear sugar helps a tiny tiny bit with my anxiety. Skittles, are my favorite.
  9. Do you have any “bodily modifications” such a tattoos or piercings? If so, where? What’s the story?
    I had my belly button pierced when I was in highschool.  But I was working in the library at the time, and it kept getting caught and then it just kind of fell/ripped out, but not in a gross way.
  10. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
    I’m a super fussy Eater.  So I don’t really eat weird things.
  11. Do you tend to speak your mind or do you prefer to calculate a response? Why/why not?
    I guess it would depend on my mood really. Typically I just keep my mouth shut to avoid conflict. However, if I’m in a weird mood then I have said unnecessary things.

I owe a big thank you to Kate from Skintuition Beauty blog  Seriously go check out her blog she’s amazing.  Also you can read her Liebster award post Here.

I know I’m supposed to nominate 11 other bloggers, but I am awful and can’t think of who would want to, that hasn’t yet.  So if you haven’t and want to do this then I nominate you! I guess just use the questions from kate as they were so much fun to answer.
