Hey everyone! About two weeks ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Melina from Ivefoundwaldo.

Her blog ranges from beauty to fashion to travel to books and I can always count on her to brighten my day in the comments section of a post. Thank you for the nomination!

One of My Favourite Blogs to Read
Linda Talks Beauty! I love Linda’s down to earth writing style and her makeup tutorial posts, and pretty much everything else about her blog! Her makeup looks are always so gorgeous and creative (check out her Tarte Blue Burst look here) and she does a great job of telling you exactly what steps she takes to achieve the look. I love that her eye palette photos have little arrows pointing to each shade with a description of how she applies them!
Ten Facts About me
One: I am a list writer! I have grocery lists, to-do-lists, budget lists, any list you name it!
Two: I try to make fitness part of my daily life. I workout in my own home four to five days a week.
Three: I have never been outside of North America.
Four: My favourite place to shop is Chapters. I love books and their home decor section is so beautiful!
Five: I’m a vegetarian!
Six: My favourite movie of all time is Hot Rod. The scene where he falls down the hill for like three minutes had me in stitches for over ten minutes the first time my best friend and I watched it. It still gets me.
Seven: Die Hard is the ultimate Christmas movie.
Eight: My favourite author is Robin Hobb. Her books are never in order at book stores, and I will actually organize them if they are out of order. Because darn it, her work deserves respect!
Nine: My favourite video game of all time is final fantasy 9, followed closely with final fantasy 8 and Zelda Ocarina Of Time.
Ten: I am thinking about starting a youtube channel, but I’m kind of scared to, and I don’t really know where to start!
Melina’s Q & A:
When you were younger, what was your dream job? I wanted to be a singer or an artist. Then it changed to an architect, then a guitarist.
What is the best post you’ve created so far? I don’t really know why some posts do better than others but my most viewed post is my e.l.f. Matte Lip Color & Moisturizing Lipstick Review from last summer!
What are 5 things you like about yourself? I like my size six feet (I get all the best clearance deals because it’s like the only size left at the end of a sale!), my love of reading, my high cheekbones, my work ethic, and my crazy planning obsession.
Best book you have read? How can I pick just one!? I think it would have to be Fool’s Fate, the third book in Robin Hobb’s Tawny Man Trilogy. All of her trilogies are set in the same world and the events taking place in each set of books bleeds into the next. This book blew my mind in the last quarter with how many loose ends it tied up from the very first Realm of the Elderlings trilogy.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
The ability to heal (like Wolverine, or Claire from Heroes).
What is your favorite movie?
What is the next place you want to travel to?
Peru, I’m going this fall for three weeks and I’m so excited!
What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
I’ve been complimented on my guitar skills before, that’s a lovely thing to hear, especially as a woman who gets prejudged by every single Long & Mcquade employee when they hear I’m looking for a guitar.
Tell me about your best friend
I have two. I have been friends with one since fourth grade, and the other since eighth. The first best friend is one of the sweetest and kindest people out there. She loves to travel and has a cat named Grayson. The second loves punk rock and metal music and went to all sorts of concerts and festivals with me in high school. We don’t see each other much any more, but when we do it’s like time hasn’t passed at all.
What is your ideal date?
Skating!! I love going skating in the winter and finishing the date with hot chocolate 🙂
