One Lovely Blog: Random Facts and Other Lovely Blogs


A while back I was nominated by the always lovely and adorable Gyudy of Gyudy’s Notes of Beauty for the One Lovely Blog Award. The idea behind this award is to share a little bit about yourself and then nominate 15 or so blogs that you admire. If you want to know my thoughts on these types of blog award tags in general you can check my last Blog Nomination post here.


One Lovely Blog Award

The rules of the award:
1. Thank the person nominating you and link back to them in your post
2. Share seven things about yourself
3. Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire
4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know

Seven Random Facts About Me:


  1. I can be a perfectionist. But only about certain things.
  2. Don’t ask me to remind you about anything. I am very absent-minded and can never remember where I’ve put things.
  3. I used to be very shy and still can be sometimes.
  4. Hypocrisy is one of my major pet peeves.
  5. I don’t really like juice .Sometimes I’ll have Papaya or Mango, though, if it is fresh squeezed.
  6. I’ve got two siblings and I’m the oldest.
  7. Love heavy black eyeliner and make no apologies for it. 🙂

I’ve doubled up some blogs that I know Gyudy has already mentioned- couldn’t help myself, we just love you all that much! 🙂 As always,  there is no pressure to do this. Mostly, I just wanted to shout out some wonderful blogs and anyone else who I didn’t mention who wants to do it, please do!

      Of course, Renata. Your blog is worth mentioning! And thank you for the camaraderie with the black eye liner. 🙂

  2. Hey Kimmy, thanks for the mention! It’s such an honor 🙂

    I’m the oldest, too! I’ve got two “little” brothers. I’ve got to put little in parentheses because obviously they’re both much bigger than I am now haha I am also way into black eyeliner as well. Even when I line my eyes with a non-back, I always use a black on my waterline and between my lashes. Otherwise I just look like I haven’t woken up at all 😉

      Thank you, Sunny, for being such a great blogger buddy – I really appreciate the time you take to connect with your readers. 🙂

      My two younger siblings are brothers as well. The dynamic of being the oldest but being the only girl is definitely an interesting one, isn’t it? Mad love on the black eye liner! xo

  3. Thank you for the nomination!! I’m not the biggest juice lover either, I don’t drink much but do get cranberry sometimes 🙂 x

      My boyfriend makes me have cranberry sometimes – I’ll have it, but usually in a cocktail. hehe. 🙂

  4. Awwww, thanks for the link love! <3 And thanks for sharing some facts about yourself. I can definitely recognize myself in 1 and 7.

      Me too, Levi, I definitely tend to focus more on the eyes than the lips most times. 🙂

    I will get straight onto this!

      Haha. Speaking from experience (ahem…my middle brother) – I think it’s probably universal. However, I will say that I think middle kids get a bad rap sometimes. 🙂 Thank you for your kind words as always Kelsey and your random facts are something I am DEFINITELY looking forward to. 🙂 xp

  8. Thank you for thinking of me & nominating me 🙂 You’re so lovely!!!!
    1) I am a perfectionist too
    3) I dislike Hypocrisy
    hehe & I am beyond absent minded I can forget everything!
    Serene xoxo

      Hehe. You’re welcome, hun. The absent minded thing is definitely a drag sometimes – it drives my boyfriend nuts! Lol. xo
