The Laine Blogger Award is about Beauty.
Thank you so much to Robin for awarding it to me!
I am supposed to answer the questions and pass it on but I am going to pass it on to everyone and if you want it, it is yours.
1. What is your current beauty obsession?
Making my face look flawless. I have sun spots, dark circles and bags under my eyes and a few small lines and wrinkles. My skin tone is uneven as well. I am pretty strict with my night cleansing routine but I am still looking for a product that I can yell to the rooftops about. I am using Clinique products and when they are gone, I am going to try Clarins or SkinCeuticals.
I adore the sun and I am bad about sunblock so there is that.
I have used a BB Cream all summer but I am ready to try something different for fall and winter. My sister loves the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and I love my Aveda tinted moisturizer but I do like a bit more coverage. I have some samples of Tarte, Hourglass and Naked foundations to try as well but for now I am using up what I have first. I am currently wearing Revlon Photo Ready foundation.
I am currently obsessed with eye shadows. I need to clean my bag, I have quite a few but I wear all of them.
2. What is the one beauty item you wish you owned?
A Clarisonic facial cleansing brush. I have heard so many good things about them but the price tag makes me cringe. I plan to get one though.
3. What is your favorite topic to read about?
I don't have a single favorite topic. I love to read about makeup, fashion and home decor. I have a diverse blog following. I really enjoy reading about people and their every day lives. I read blogs about people with both seemingly perfect lives and others with lots of problems. I also like humor blogs. I learn a lot from bloggers. I have made friends with people that I would love to someday meet.
4. What inspired you to become a blogger?
I never wanted to be "a blogger". I am a girl who writes her thoughts and feelings down to remember my life. I try not to write about the kids too much these days because they want their privacy so I kind of moved into a different area of blogging. I was shocked when people started following me. I try to be as honest as possible without being unkind or disrespectful. I do like to poke fun occasionally. I also try to keep my language in check as to not offend some of my readers. I really love to tell funny stories and the thoughts that accompany them but I have been so busy lately, I fear I have lost a bit of myself.
I get really irritated at people who tell me what to do or say on my blog. If you don't like me or have a problem, get lost.
5. What nail polish are you wearing now?
I have a green mojito polish on my toes (Essie but the name slips my mind) and I just took Turquoise and Caicos off of my fingernails. I try not to wear weird colors at work (purple, green, blue or black) because in the restaurant business, it seems unprofessional. I do have fun with color on my days off.
Finally made my Sam's stock up trip today.
I need to get to grocery store asap!
I am really excited about what I sent my sister for her birthday, she will love it!!
I am also excited about some shoes I ordered yesterday. I needed some black flats for work and I am loving these Coach flats:
My husband sent me some fun iphone cases last night from the Apple site. He knows my vices. I found even more on MK's website.
I am always a Coach girl but I just might want a Mickael Kors bag after going to their website and seeing these:
