the sunshine award

i am so honored to have been nominated for the sunshine award by student makeup struggles! ¬†basically georgia nominated me to answer the questions she prepared, and then i will nominate and pose my own questions to bloggers of my choice. ¬†i think this means i’m a real blogger now, right?!bb pf candle co1.jpgthe rules are as follows:

thank the person who nominated you

answer the questions

ask your own questions

nominate your own bloggers

. . .

so first of all, i want to say a big thank you to georgia of student makeup struggles for nominating me for this award! ¬†it’s so fun to be part of the community of bloggers all over the world and it is truly incredible to meet new people with common interests.

what’s your favorite thing to do in your down time? napping, hands down. ¬†in bed, on the couch, at the beach. ¬†i love to throw on a show or youtube video and close my eyes. ¬†i try to keep it short, but i just love to nap!

tell us about your favorite blog right now? my favorite blog of the moment (and pretty much always) is the australian beauty blog, the file. ¬†it’s sort of an into-the-gloss-but-better type site that shares interesting australian’s routines, go to products of the moment, reviews, etc. ¬†i just love reading about australia and the people there, as well as the popular products. ¬†it’s just fun! ¬†the images are amazing, i feature them a lot in my roundup posts, and i feel like it is a little bit more natural than other blogs in the same vain. ¬†it’s very cool and inspiring and perfectly¬†australian, even as cliche as that sounds.

how long have you been blogging for? i have been blogging since november 2014. ¬†i originally wanted the blog to be more about fashion, but it has evolved into more of a beauty space. ¬†i think that is true with my passions as well – there is something abut beauty, routines, products that has my heart more than fashion ever has. ¬†beauty is also more attainable to me in a way that fashion isn’t – i love reading a beauty blog and knowing that i can get the product in question if i want to (within reason of course), whereas sometimes reading fashion blogs is depressing because the looks are completely unachievable. ¬†maybe because beauty is way more personal and unique as well. ¬†my roundup posts are the most common posts on my blog, which i think is very true to my brain and what inspires me. ¬†sometimes i am really motivated to talk about what i am loving and doing, but other times i just want to consume, scroll, and read about others and look at pretty pictures. ¬†i like that my blog is a mish mash of both – it’s a space where i can share what i’m enjoying be it products, pieces, or pictures.

what’s your favorite thing about your home town? the proximity to the beach (lake michigan) and the neighborhood feel. ¬†it was extremely difficult to grow up in such a small town, but now that i have some distance i can appreciate it for what it is and was. ¬†my parents recently moved away from the house i grew up in, but i still count that little town as my home.

if you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?  the first place that always enters my mind is paris.  i just love it there.  how can you not?!  but i think right now it would be australia or new zealand.  i would love to spend a summer traveling between the two, meeting people, working, and exploring.  i love the culture and the overall vibe and would love to be there in person.

. . .

ok, so now for the fun part! ¬†below are the questions that i pose to some of my favorite bloggers, kim and makeup¬†and emily petrie. ¬†can’t wait to read your responses, ladies!
