 From Christina at Red Lip Gloss

The only rules I could find for this one were to reveal 10 things about myself and tag 10 other blogs.

I'm going to compromise a bit (this is my own fault for leaving this so long!) so I'm only going to make you guys read 10 things about me, and I'm going to award 5 bloggers for each award :)

Ten Things About Me:

1. I am right-handed.
2. I don't like wearing jeans very much. I have my mom's Japanese body shape and it came complete with short legs and straight hips. Fun times!! hehe I prefer to wear dresses and can be found in a maxi dress and sandals 70% of the time.
3. I am a terrible procrastinator
4. I quite like unicorns, especially if they are sparkly or rainbow colored.
5. I won 'Asthetician of the year' when I was at beauty school.
6. I also won 'Student of the Year', and it was so exciting for me, that I practically flew up to accept my award.
7. I am a little bit of a 'rock/punk chick'. One of my favorite genres of all time is Riot Grrrl, that started when I was a wee little girl. (majorly showing my age here, I know!)
8. My favorite number is five, and I also tend to favor numbers that are multiples of five (yes, I'm weird!)
9. The front seat of my car is always full of empty plastic water bottles. I don't like to throw them out because I take them all out (usually a few times a month - see #3) and recycle them.
10. I am a recovering nail biter, who sometimes (ok, a LOT of times) has relapses, but is working hard to stay clean!

Here are the blogs I would like to award/Tag:

Stylish Blogger Award:

Versatile Blogger Award:

kreativ Blogger Award:

If you guys have some free time and are looking for new blogs, I definitely recommend checking these out. I know that Blog Awards can be a bit of a hassle sometimes, but they do help. In fact, that's how I found most of these lovely ladies!! :)

Thank you so, sooo much to all three of you for tagging me! I am so pleased that you enjoy my blog because I really love all of yours, and I really love being able to interact with you all! :D


  1. Ooh your thing about the number five is exactly the same as me! I remember counting in fives and making things add up to five way back when I was in primary school and I still do it now, I assume its a bit of OCD??  

  2. I LOVEEEE Unicorns xxxx

     Oh! I wonder if it is an OCD thing! I like to count things in fives. And if they don't add up, I have to add something in or take something out. Like the most random things to, the points on someone's earrings, the letters on someone's shirt! hahaha I'm a weirdo! Although, in my defence, five is a pretty awesome number!

     Hello you!! :) Unicorns are awesome! hehehe i'm glad I'm not the only one, my friends make fun of me for liking them :(
