The Creative Blog Award

Hello again, I was recently awarded the Creative Blog Award by the oh so wonderful Makeup Demon. I think these blog awards are totally awesome, they're a great way to get to know each other and they're just fun. So I was really happy when I saw that Makeup Demon had nominated me for this award. She has a fantastic blog and it made me feel really special to get nominated by her. I highly recommend you check out her blog, and you can do so by clicking the link here.

Now the rules:

  • Thank the blogger and link back the blog
  • Tell 3 things about yourself
  • Tell 2 things people don't know about you
  • Tell 1 thing you want to change about yourself
  • Answer the questions asked by the tagger
  • Nominate this award deserving blogs
  • Ask some questions to the bloggers who got nominated
  • Inform the bloggers about their award

Three things about myself:

  1. I love to cook and am quite good at it. Making new and delicious meals for my family and having them like it absolutely thrills me.
  2. After we buy a house instead of renting, I plan on fostering animals from one of our local animal shelters until they find permanent homes. 
  3. I absolutely hate it when other people wash my hair, which is part of the reason that I cut my own hair instead of going to the salon.

Two things people don't know about me:

  1. I dance very poorly. It's rather embarrassing, to be honest..
  2. My husband is the only person that I have ever dated. 

One thing I want to change about myself:
Umm.. I wish I enjoyed exercising more.

My answers to Makeup Demon's questions:

  1. Lipstick or lip gloss? I generally wear either lipstick or lip balm. But it really just depends on what I'm wearing and where I'm going.
  2. What is the most beautiful color of nail polish for you? I'm a big fan of the classic nude and white French tip.
  3. How often are you visiting your hairdresser? Well, I generally do my own hair. But I don't cut/color my hair very often.. Maybe every 5 months. Sometimes more often. Just depends on my mood and the state of my hair.
  4. What would you like to change in your blog? I want to add some additional pages to my blog, like an About Me, Contact Me, a Disclaimer page, etc.

Finally, I'm nominating these amazing bloggers and their blogs:

Stefi at Stefichop's Beauty Blog
ReNu at My Beauty Junction
Megan at lovemeganalexis
Kaye Eh at Girl, Uniterrupted

My questions for nominees:

  1. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
  2. What's the one beauty product you refuse to leave the house without?
  3. Do you prefer blogging in the morning, afternoon or evening?
  4. What color lipstick is your favorite?
I hope you do check out Makeup Demon's blog as well as my lovely nominee's blogs! These awards are all about sharing the love, so please do. But I've got to go get ready to go to my mum's house for dinner, so til next time!


  1. OOh this is a good post and I would love to foster animals too xx

    1. Thanks! I love animals, I have 2 cats and a dog at the moment, and if I had a bigger place I'd have more. And then foster animals as well.

  2. So I wanted to turn it early tonight and I saw this, now too excited! Thank you so very much! Will do them tomorrow first thing. I've been getting my mum or a friend to trim my hair at home as well. Thanks again for making my day. Night, I mean.

    1. Tehe, sorry to keep you up late. ;)
      And you're very welcome. You have a lovely blog that deserves recognition.

  3. Lovely post! So cute that you only dated your hubby! I really respect that :)
    It's not that hard to add pages btw!


    1. Thanks, it was a strange set of coincidences that brought us together.
      And I'm sure it's not that difficult to add pages, I'm just a little burnt out on blog designing at the moment.
