beauty-blogger-award (1)

Thank you to the sweet and kind Natalie from Natalie’s Mostly Disney Blog. She has a wonderful blog that mostly revolves around all things Disney. Please check her out and see all of her great thoughts on Disney!

Rules:

1.State the name of the person who nominated you.

2.Answer the questionsย asked by the person that nominated you.

3.List 10 random facts about yourself.

4.Nominate 15 bloggers whose blogs are about fashion or beauty. ( I went with 10 of my favorites…. besides aren’t rules made to be broken??)

5.The people who you nominate have to have under 200 followers. (I tried my best but I went with some of my favorite beauty bloggers!)

6.Let the bloggers know you nominated them.

Natalie’s Questions:

1.What is the makeup product you can not live without?

Chap Stick or lip gloss. I take that stuff with me everywhere.

2.What is your least favorite makeup product to put on?

I would say eyeliner! I can’t really draw a straight line so that in and of itself it a problem!

3.There is a fire,and you can only grab three things. What would those three things be?

My dog (assuming my husband is already out!) My nail polish but that would be impossible because there are so many! Jewelry that was given to my from my grandmother.

4.How long does it take you to put on a full face of makeup?

Awhile because I’m not very good at it!

5. Do you wear makeup everyday?

I usually don’t wear it everyday mostly because I feel like I don’t apply it correctly.

6.What is your clothing style like?

I have been told that I dress like an old lady by my sister. I can’t help it though! I am very modest when it comes to clothing. Plus I work with an older crowd and it wouldn’t really help me career wise if I was dressed really young looking!

7.What is your favorite makeup brand?

I’d have to say it depends on what the product is. If it’s for my lips my favorite is a Mary Kay exfoliator. It works so well for me since I am a lip chewer and constantly get chunks of skin that like to hang off.

8.How about least favorite?

I don’t know about a least favorite brand but I can tell you a product that covers all brands that I just generally dislike. It’s red lipstick. It looks so nice on other people but it just looks so cheap on me!

9.When did you start wearing makeup, and what did you wear?

I started wearing makeup in middle school. I would wear all of it, foundation, eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow. Basically anything that I owned at that time.

10.How old are you?

I am 30 years old!

My Random Facts:

  • I am a huge reality tv junkie. The worse the show is the more I like it!
  • I prefer to dye and cut my hair myself rather than going to a salon.
  • I am terrified of heights.
  • I have a weird infatuation with old documentaries, mostly featuring WWII.
  • I have spent at least 5 years working on my family tree.
  • I am American but adore the British Royal Family.
  • My dog Bentley is my best bud! At least she doesn’t talk back!
  • I have 3 tattoos, all on my back.
  • I have an obsession with nail polish.
  • If it’s sparkly or covered in glitter I will more than likely like it!

Now it’s time to nominate some beauty bloggers!

    1. Thanks! Of course I had to tag you! You are seriously on the top of my favorite blogger list! I think that sometimes life and all it’s hustle and bustle gets in the way of our dreams. Sometimes life just wears us down! I know for a long time I carried around a little black rain cloud with me everywhere only recently has it been replaced with sunshine and rainbows! I find that taking time to relax really helps me. I try to do it for an hour every night before I go to sleep. It’s really helped me a lot especially since I sleep issues. If you have sleep issues as well let me know and I’ll email you all about what I do to fix that. I’d write it here but most people will probably think I’m a little wacky. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Oh dear…my cheeks are on fire reading your compliment. That means a lot to me Laura. I quite often refer to my blog as “my crappy lil ole blog” which I’ve one bestie more like a sister who keeps giving me crap that my blog is better than I think it is. So that makes two of you. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Don’t for one second ever think I’m not having mad love for your blog! And I learn from what you do too. Why!? Why can’t we live closer!!??
        I am excited to write the Infinity award but I honestly am having trouble with the dreams. :/
        Part of it is I’ve done a lot in life already that would have been on most ppls dream list & the other part is wishing I wasn’t sick, could have my dead Man dog back and those kinds of dreams don’t count. Plus they are morbid. I’ll figure it out though. ๐Ÿ™‚
        I have really bad sleep issues too so that reminds me I think I seen a email in my inbox so I’ll write you back asap.

        Wacky? Is that what ppl like us are called? *lol* I’m fine with that! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But yes, I’d love/need to know what tips you have.

      2. Well I think your blog rocks and your friend is right! You should be giving yourself way more credit than you do! I’ve learned a lot from you and your blog! Keeping up with a blog is a lot of hard work. I didn’t even realize how much work it is. But once I started really getting into the nitty gritty world of blogging I’ve been able to find just a small little place in this world where my thoughts and experiences mean something. In all honesty it’s been an eye opener for me. If someone had told me 10+ years ago that I would have my own blog I’d probably laugh at them. Now I have much more self confidence and when I tell people I have a blog I say it proudly! It’s been eye opening!
        I seriously wish we lived closer! I can only imagine the shenanigans we would get into!
        As for the dreams, I can totally relate. I would say that 3 years ago all my dreams would have been to see my grandmother for just one more day, one more hug, one more of her awesome stories. Now, as much as I still want all those things I take a few minutes to myself and think about how she would want me to be happy so I live my life hoping she is watching me and is content with what I am doing in my life. It took a long time to get to this point and in all honesty therapy helped. Now when I feel a little blue I go outside at night and stare at the stars and I remind myself she’s not really gone, she just twinkles at night!
        Yup I certainly am at least a little wacky! I think it adds character, or at least that’s what I tell myself! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I will email you my sleeping tool. Not sure if it will help but for some reason in my crazy mind it’s helped! ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. Thank you.
        Can 100% relate to the “I blog” comment as I’d have probably snorted 10 years ago as in “me blog? Yeah right!” You are so very right about everything you said. And in a large way blogging gives a person a voice. We get to pick what we want to write about. Suddenly a person doesn’t feel shy anymore either. The best part being that other people are interested in not only one’s blog but self too. So that is fantastic you feel so good about it! Have you found that say the person at a coffee shop or wherever are impressed? (Wrong word..but hopefully you know what I mean.) I’ve learned that blogging is important on so many levels from personal one’s to social one’s. (I’ve been planning on getting business card’s made up which is just a idea for you..) Plus a person never knows what new unexpected door’s blogging can open. It’s almost like getting to have one’s own tv or radio show except nobody tells you what to do so it’s powerfully freeing too.

        Yes, darn it bug’s me that we live so far apart if I let my brain think to much about it. It would be so fun to shop, hangout, Co blog and so much more! But we are lucky we crossed paths so that is something to be very thankful for.

        Sorry to hear about your grandmother. Yet as you write I am picking up on a feeling of loss but inner joy as well. Joy that you’ve moved forward and how proud she’d be. I love that about “twinkles in the night.” That is beautiful!!

      4. Blogging has been such a great thing for me. It’s surprising how much of an outlet I find it. I feel as though my confidence has soared and it’s actually helping me at work too! I feel like I am finding my true voice! Ironically though I haven’t really shared with many people I know about my blog. I mean my mother and sisters know about it but other than that I’ve told no one. It’s like my own little piece of the world! lol I’m going to start slowly easing into telling more people about it. Maybe I should just make business cards!
        Co blogging would be so much fun! I was actually thinking about starting a weekly post featuring a different blogger and highlighting them. Once I start it I’d love for you to be my first blogger! Now that I am typing that I should really get going on it! lol (damn bloggers rut!)
        My grandma was my world. She was basically my calm in the storm. She did so much for me and I wouldn’t know where I would be without her. Sometimes life has other plans for us and now I just try to cope with that empty space. But when I think of her it brings back so many great memories that even though I am sad I am also happy to have those memories!

        Oh btw, I added a new page on my blog titled PR. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on it? It was sort of my attempt to hopefully get the blog a little more interest, not sure if it will work though.
        Well I hope your day is going fabulous!

      5. (I cannot seem to write what my brain is thinking so hang in there while I muddle through replying )
        I remember in the beginning or when I first started reading your blog that it was good. But comparing then to now there’s a huge difference! What started out as a good blog has become an awesome one as it’s now very easy to tell it has become a true passion for you & that is what blogging is about I think. It’s easy to tell the blogs that blog just for attention (no disrespect to anyone meant) and the blogs that have passion! You just keep blooming my friend & it’s been absolutely wonderful to watch! โค
        I remember when we first started chatting. You were somewhere hesitant but the Laura that blogs now is “I am here, I have a voice, I’m confident, I am passionate ” and so much more! So I can totally believe it helps you at work too. It’s like self therapy in a way. Actually I told my Dr that I had taken up blogging. She near fell over as that wouldn’t be something I’d normally do yet she had wondered what was different about me. So when I mentioned blogging she told me to never stop b/c it was visible to her that I was doing something positive and it showed.
        Like you for the longest time I didn’t tell anyone that I blogged. Not sure if I was embarrassed or wanted to keep it something private just for myself. So I understand what you mean & feel. Then one day I was at Walmart or somewhere and someone made a comment about my nails or make up. I mentioned that I blog. It was like I said I am on Tv or something! Twice now I’ve been reconzized which threw me for a loop as I’m not popular or have masses of following. Dunno but same as you, something must be showing through. I’ve been asked for business card’s practically anywhere I go now and at first I thought it silly. But the more I thought about it, it’s not silly at all! And I honestly think you should consider getting some made too. Plus it’s great for PR.
        How I WISH we could co blog! I wish even more that we could Vlogg together! It’s like we are the perfect match.. Doing a weekly feature post is a great idea! Ironic enough I will be doing a blog interview with a fabulous woman who does poetry and art work fairly soon. But it would be AWESOME to do a feature blog with you! Id love to be your 1st and I’d definitely love to have you on my blog! I’d be honored, truly! >3
        It’s wonderful that your grandma was such an inspiration for you. Shed be proud no doubt about it!

        I’ll definitely come give your PR page a look. That’s one area I might actually be useful lol! (Which reminds me I know how to get your watermark on your nails, I just keep forgetting to mention it. I’ll add that in my email to you.) Btw Missy I remember when doing PR stuff wasn’t your thing..LOL!!! So that’s what I mean about the amazing growth and confidence I’ve been seeing in you & I LOVE it!! Of course blogging a person learns more everyday but I’ve some excellent tips & short cuts for you. (There’s a couple of companies I badly want to represent. Last week I emailed the CEO of both. Landed the gig with one & still waiting to hear back on the other. Point being, me contact a big wig CEO? Never would have ever thought I’d have the guts to do that! But I took a chance and it worked!) So I can definitely help you with suggestions. And knowing you, I’ll probably read your new PR page & it will be perfect! (But I’ve some really great stuff to share with you so I’ll include it all in my email. )
        Feeling really sick today but it’s been really hot which makes me even sicker..but I thank you for the well wishes! Hope your day went great!! Okay I’m headed to your blog to read your new page. >3 xx

      6. You my dear have really helped move my confidence upwards! It really helps to have a friend that enjoys doing the same things.
        For awhile PR wasn’t my thing but with some new found confidence I want to give it a go. I figure what can I lose?
        You emailed CEO’s of companies!!!! Rock on girly! That is amazing! I wouldn’t have even known what to write!!! The fact that you got one is just a cherry on top! Congrats and you totally deserve it!!!
        I hope you feel better! The heat can be such a bitch! lol I know with my meds the heat really affects me, not to mention that I have been so run down lately. I too am not feeling so great today! But I hope you start feeling better soon! I still need to email you about a few things so I should get started on that soon!

      7. Awe you are welcome but I call a spade a spade & so do you.
        Yes definitely now that you are ready, doing some PR is fantastic! (I’ve learned not to get caught up doing the small stuff that doesn’t payoff considering the work involved. So I’ll write some good starting idea’s in my email which I will hopefully get done today.) Your self and blog is already attactive to companies so Hooray b/c it’s a exciting new level of blogging and I’m proud of you!
        Yes, I cannot believe I actually contacted two CEOs! LOL! B/c I live in Canada technically I cannot work for one of them so I emailed to see if there was a way around it somehow. As I’ve mentioned I usually call my blog “silly & little. ” But the CEO KNEW my blog and wanted to work with me just as much as I wanted to work with them!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
        Now that you mention it, some of my meds don’t mix with heat. Glad you mentioned that as I’d forgotten. Just a guess but with everything you do plus meds you’d definitely feel tired. I had a fairly busy last month but I feel like a teenager again, as all I want to do is sleep. Usually I’m awake at 9am at the latest but woke up at noon today.

        Hope you get feeling better soon and I’ll get to writing an email after lunch. Xx

      8. Oh I am so proud of you! Hopefully there is some way they can work around living in Canada. That would totally stink if you couldn’t because of something so silly.
        Yup the heat and my meds seems to do me in! I’m learning how to adjust. Plus my sleeping is all off! I generally wake up between 4 and 5 in the morning (even on non working days ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) and attempt to go to sleep around 8 at night. What usually ends up happening is that I don’t fall asleep until about midnight. Add my meds to that and I make for a really bad grumpy cat in the morning! Luckily for me I see my Dr. next week so I am hoping she can give me some recommendations to fix it.
        Oh BTW I went and changed my blog theme and I’m not really sure how I feel about it. I’d love to hear your thoughts the next time you swing by! I changed it because I really wanted a white background and the previous theme wouldn’t let me change it. I might end up reverting back but for now I’m going to try and stick with it.

      9. The company is definitely willing to work something out with me. And when they are ready to expand into Canada if I’ve done a good enough job for them, I’ll get to play a rather large part in the Canadian launch!
        I still haven’t gotten to your email yet as got sidetracked and decided I fired another one off to another CEO of a company I’d love to work for.

      11. Really? I mean I know you mean it…I just don’t understand why I haven’t hundreds if not 1000 following. It really gets to me sometimes as to why my blog hasn’t taken of like I thought it would. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, it’s an age demographic thing, most of my PRs are of expensive stuff, I’m viewed as a threat or what. Most blogs haven’t been blogging as long as I have and they’ve sky rocketed into the 1000 in 3 month’s time. So I have to be doing something wrong or I’m not doing something I need to be doing. Boggles my brain.. So feel free to suggest! I’ve asked a few other’s a long time ago but they wouldn’t say. If I am asking I want to know. But part of it all goes back to the “it’s a secret ” crap..
        Needless to say, your support means a lot to me b/c you are 100% being you & call a spade a spade just like I do. And having that mutual support and how to help each other up our blog game is priceless! โค

      12. Ive been having that same issue. I’ve noticed bloggers that just start out with tons of followers. It’s been boggling my mind too. I’ve even noticed that there posts are only a few times a month. Maybe we are missing something. I just wish I knew what it was!!

      13. First of all it is important to realize that we both are very successful at what we do. As we both have very varied and interesting blogs. The readers who enjoy what is written are amazing people. So it’s super easy to get caught in the whole “my following is small meaning my blog isn’t successful” trap. I fall into that hole like every other week *lol*! You’ve been blogging for just over a year now right? And I think I seen somewhere on your blog you’ve 300+ following? See I don’t understand that! At all! If I we’re just a random person who came across your blog I’d be interested right away. Technically you should have at least 1000+ so I just don’t know why. I have a few theorys but I’ll tell you later. I don’t think we are missing anything putting aside some normal tweaks here & there.

The very few time’s I have mentioned it in the past the only answer I’d ever get back was “dunno! ” So even though it sucks that we are in the same boat, WE are in the same boat together! Maybe with both of us putting our head’s together we can figure it out. I feel just as happy as you do that finally someone understands!

I’m trying to find stuff for my Sassy box!

      19. I almost hate to show them to you b/c once my wallet quits crying (went on a bit of a happy bday to me haul) if they are as awesome as I think they’ll be I wanted to buy a few and surprise you with them. Not even joking you are going to die when you see even just the boxes! ) It’s funny b/c I broke all of my nails yet they are still the length most ppl would get for tip length at a salon..LOL! Which reminds me I was looking at UV / Nail units and holy expensive! Plus there’s so many different Watt levels how does one know what is what?
        Oh I near died for reals when I seen a picture that Disney put out a princess makeup line by elf. Aerial has two eye quads plus a lipstick set, nail polishes, eyeliner kit’s. They only cost $5 each! Anyhoo I messaged the stranger “where did they get them.” Walgreen’s. Which won’t ship to Canada!! So then I tried looking for the Ariel Collection on the elf website but nada! Have you heard of these? They have Ariel, Pocahontas, Milan, Sleeping Beauty and Belle & probably more. Some of the polishes look beautiful too!
        (I probably didn’t lose 20lbs..I just feel like I did. But holy it was awful! 20ยฐ is even too hot for me.) Hopefully you don’t get hit with that heat wave! It made it’s way to Phoenix a few days back. Worst heat I can remember! Plus I’ve a tiny fish tank in my room with made it worse. Had to drink 8 cans of coconut water yesterday just to get some liquid back into my blood yesterday lol! And while I was busy being passed out half dead I didn’t know I won a Dior compact I had entered for! Which reminds me, I’ve been entering your twitter name into any of the bff contests so if you should ever get a message from Dave Lackie that you’ve won something that’s why. Should have told you that sooner LOL!

        I just found out about the elf Disney princess line! I am wanting the Belle stuff!!!! I have a Walgreens near my house and I’m on vacation this week so I am going down there right after my Dr.s appointment. It’s early in the morning so I will hopefully get there before most people are awake! They better still have them or I might have a meltdown right in the store! If they have the Ariel collection I will grab them. I am going to check the u.s. website too! If you have any specific things in the collection you want just let me know and I will see if they have them!
        I haven’t tried coconut water yet but I love me some coconut oil! Reminds me of the commercial for Frank’s Red Hot “I put that shit on everything!”

        Yes!! I near seriously died when I seen the Disney set’s & in my case The Little Mermaid! (Although there was some really cool Disney Good vs Evil kit’s too! I think one might have been sleeping beauty as the queen wasn’t from snow white. It was a mix kit with eye shadow, liner and polish maybe? As soon as I seen the Belle stuff I KNEW you’d love it!) The random chick online I begged her to sell me her Mermaid stuff and the two Belle pallets she had. Belle obviously for you..lol! She had what looked like a makeup bag, 2 eye shadow quads/eye pallets, the lipstick set, eyeliner set & some Polish. I’d be seriously forever grateful if you could find the make up bag, the two eye shadow quads & the lipstick set. If you happen to find more of the collection and that Good vs Evil multi set I don’t mind paying for them. Whatever you can find I’ve got to have!!..lol! I was literally frantic when I seen them so I would be doing exactly what you are, hitting Walgreen’s early. And if they are sold out of the Belle collection I know EXACTLY what kind of meltdown you are going to be having! I tried to write you an email about seeing the collection b/c I haven’t heard you mention them so figured you hadn’t heard of them but I was shaking so bad from freaking the hell out trying to find them I couldn’t think to write. So I’m glad you have heard about them!
        Good luck at the Dr tomorrow and more luck at Walgreen’s!
        (Smiling Buddha coconut water tastes like super cold water but better! If they don’t sell it down there I don’t care how heavy it makes the box I’ll be putting a few in.) Off to bed for the night but will catch up with you tomorrow! I was going to say just text me but don’t know if you have international texting. I do. Also can’t remember if I gave you my number either. Oh! I know! Just in case you do have texting I’m going to head over to twitter & leave you my number in the private message’s. Sweet dreams!! xx

I saw the Belle bags on Walgreens’ website but they are all sold out!!!!!! It took everything in me not to have a meltdown!!!! lol I’m going to check the store before I order online! I did see the Good Vs. Evil kits! I need them!!!! They also have some Good Vs. Evil Kiss Nail Art Sets. I can’t wait for this appointment to be over! lol I have never wanted to go to Walgreens this badly before!!!! lol I’m not sure if I have international texting but at this point I’m not too worried about it! I’ll probably be texting you as soon as I get the stuff! I hope it won’t be too early b/c of the time difference! I apologize in advance if it is!

      23. Too funny! Both of us seriously freaking out about the Disney collection. I know the 20 somethings are freaking out but we are the 30s & almost 40 somethings lololols!! Not joking I told that chick online I’d pay her whatever she wanted for her Belle collection. (I knew she wasn’t going to part with the Mermaid stuff.) Figured if I could at least nab the Belle stuff I’d have hit the jackpot for your box. I was sweating I was freaking out so bad lol!
        I did find a place that’s only in the states that had a lot of the Belle stuff. drugstore.com
        You’re probably heard of them but they had a great selection and of the Good vs Evil collection too!

I then went to 2 different Walgreens to try and find them but neither of them had anything. One lady was like we might have some out back want me to check? YES YES YES!!! She came back with nothing. My sister is going to be in my hometown today which has a Walgreens there so I gave her a mission to check for me. If I can’t get them there I am going to just order them online! I should know in a few hours! I also have some seriously good news to tell you! I’m going to email you!!

      25. Oh no! I hate it when that happens. Hopefully your Dr office isn’t too far away from your home. It’s not stupid. It’s easy to get the day’s backwards.
        Crap about Walgreen’s. I have a feeling it’s going to be quite the hunt if the Twitter explosion is anything to go by.
        Ooooooo? My ear’s must know! I love good news!! Seriously cannot wait to hear it!

      26. Okay I left you some pictures on twitter in your message box. Hopefully you see them. Easier to use a picture than me describe them..lol
        Good luck with Belle!
        Honestly the entire flipping Disney collection looks amazing for all characters. And I think it totally rude us Canadians aren’t worthy! ๐Ÿ˜€

      27. OMG! I’m picturing you “hip checking” people! Bahahahaha!!!!
        Mind you, I’d dare someone to get in my way if I were the one headed to Walgreen’s! As no playing nice! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ ;D

      28. Luckily I didn’t need to bring my hip checking skills! The stores were pretty empty with only a few older women picking up their prescriptions there. The first one I went to told me to look in the toy aisle! They had no clue! The 2nd store was much better. The woman was really nice and even offered to look in the back room which had none! Or they were just lying to keep it all for themselves….. maybe I should go back?!! lol

      29. Well it’s weird b/c if you google elf Disney Collection and go to images, not joking some shelves look like they are going to buckle from so much Disney stuff in stalk! So where are these mythical isles that are packed full? The displays are massive! I have heard that a lot of places are sold out already but if those pictures online are to be believed there must be a few super store Walgreen’s somewhere.. lol!

      30. Oh woman! People were snapping pictures of the “mythical ” Walgreens that had every character collection from Snow white to Elsa! Super weird! I wondered if it might have been in a actual Disney Store but it looked like Walgreen shelving.

      31. Sorry to hear you are having such sleeping problems. I might have an idea for you that will help but it involves the company I just emailed.
        I’ll definitely go take another look see at your site. I can tell you from experience that having a black background isn’t good for anything PR related. Which is stupid b/c black is beautiful. I had black for the longest time and it didn’t work for getting any gigs. As bad as I hate having a white background it was a game changer. I think it’s b/c it gives a nice magazine clean look. Some people get away with a light pink but if you look at the really successful blogs, they all have a white background. That being said, it’s has to be a theme that still feels like you. I know it would be twice the work but you may want to consider running your regular blog and one only for beauty and PR work. Reason I say that is that’s what I ended up having to do. Cut out all non beauty related topics from my blog and streamline it. And my other blog for humor, rants, poetry and so on is now separate. Not saying you cannot pull of doing both on your blog just that you will probably get further by separating the two..

      32. It’s just a thought. It’s super crappy starting over again. I hate it that on Sassafrass it’s only beauty with some humor tossed in since I streamlined it. (I have tons of other stuff I love to write and now I’m stuck in the beauty category. It makes me mad actually b/c I had no intention of becoming a bblogger.) It’s a hard decision to make so take your time with it. If your gut tells you that you can pull off doing everything on one blog, stick with it. I hate white backgrounds but have to say holy!! That change is huge on your blog! It looks like you paid someone to do the layout like a lot do. Looks fresh & maybe that’s all you needed to do.

      33. Thank you so much! I appreciate the feedback! I was all about creating a new blog earlier today like totally thinking of what I would do ….. then I got home and decided ya know what? It’s my blog and I’m going to do it my way. I think I would become too bored with just beauty stuff. Plus it’s a way for me and the hubby to have something we both like together. So for now it’s going to stay the way it is even if that hinders me! lol Who knows I might have a complete change of heart. I’m too indecisive that’s my problem! ๐Ÿ™‚

      34. That both of you share the blog is super amazing and definitely something I seriously adore about your blog. And at the end of the day it’s exactly as you said. It’s YOUR blog. And Yes, I can see you tiring of the beauty stuff super quick.
        (I kind of regret streamlining mine. I enjoy swearing and or saying it like it is which…isn’t family friendly. Plus I figured it wasn’t brand friendly either. Yet a majority of my reader’s love it when I don’t filter myself. Gah!! )
        Anyhoo I honestly think maybe all you needed to do was switch to the “dreaded” white background. When in doubt stick with your gut which it sounds like that’s exactly what you are doing! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      35. I have to admit that I love it when you really say what you are thinking! It may not be family friendly but it’s true to you! Plus it won’t offend me I swear like a truck driver stuck in traffic. If someone doesn’t like it I just kindly remind them that swearing releases stress which has been scientifically proven and I also remind them that they really wouldn’t want to see me stressed. I’m like a tornado and a hurricane all wrapped up waiting for an explosion! lol But anywho I think if you want to do more than just beauty you should. I know I sure as heck would enjoy it!

      36. I know you are definitely one that gets a laugh when I let myself off the chain so to speak. Plus I have fun being sarcastic or whatever. I’ve been trying to toss some sarcasm into most post’s. And don’t I just LOVE throwing shade when I can! Born Pretty is in que for some for charging 4x the amount for the same stuff they sell on eBay as Born Pretty lol. I’ve been working hard on getting those two sponsors i wanted so actually yes, now that i think about it i have been filtering myself. But once i land the other gig (hopefully) back to being me!

        I can just imagine the cursing you do when someone Yanks out a checkbook on your lunch hour. “A tornado & a hurricane wrapped up”…whoo! That’s one explosion I’d like to see. Plus I like how you worded that. Makes total sense actually lol! Rather genius too… “Hi my name is…..and I am a tornado & a hurricane all wrapped up waiting for an explosion! ” I do believe I just learned a fantastic new, for real saying!!

      37. I’m glad you liked that! My mom loves it when I get all worked up because she just hysterically laughs at the amount of crazy that comes out of my mouth. It usually ends up with all sorts of new sayings. I’ll have to share them with you via e-mail b/c they are really bad! If swearing were a crime I’d be locked up with no hope of getting out. What’s worse though is the stuff I think up and actually don’t say! My mother calls me an evil genius! ๐Ÿ™‚

        (My father called me a Diva not long ago. Asked him as in a good Diva or a bad one. Apparently the rants I go on landed me in the bad diva category! XD
        What does he know about diva’s anyway? LMAO)
        So I totally can picture your mom being funny & having a laugh at you. ๐Ÿ˜€

      39. It’s ok though! I think bad divas have way more fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad just can’t keep up with my shenanigans! He’s constantly rolling his eyes and shaking his head at me probably thinking where did she come from? lol He actually just got home from a guys weekend in Montreal. I think he was scared to walk through the door b/c he was probably wondering what has she been up to now?! I just keep telling him things have to be interesting and I always add a little who else is going to keep you on your toes? And once again he starts with the eye rolls and head shaking! ๐Ÿ™‚
