Beautiful Blogger Award 2: Shadow of the Blogger

Beautiful Blogger Award

Many thanks to the lovely and multi-talented Zovesta at Glamour Vortex, who has nominated me for a Beautiful Blogger Award! Her blog is well-written and has a touch of the vintage—please go and check it out if you have not already!

Questions from Glamour Vortex

1. What’s your favourite outfit(s)?
I generally just like to be comfortable, so jeans and a tee is really my go-to outfit. Or leggings and a shirt/tee that is long enough to cover my butt, if I’m feeling especially lazy. Footwear would be ballet flats or Supergas.

2. Do you wear jewelry? If so, what kind?
I typically just wear a watch and my wedding band. Occasionally I’ll dress it up some more with a bangle/cuff or a necklace. I still love the leather cuffs from Hayden-Harnett!

3. Do you take down notes digitally (with a phone, laptop, etc), or write them down on paper?
Digitally. I honestly don’t even know why I have a big cup of pens and pencils on my desk.

4. What’s your favourite season, fashion wise?
Fall! Not too hot, not too cool, jackets, sweaters, boots and scarves!

5. Animated or live action?
I probably have a slight preference for live action, but I do love animation, as well.

6. What’s your favourite cosmetic you own?
Ooh, I don’t think I can do this! I’ll just go with one of the makeup items my husband has given to me.

YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in Rouge Libertine

7. Do you have a “confidence ensemble”? An outfit paired with certain makeup that just makes you feel confident and ready to take on the world?
Not really! Is that sad? I love a red lipstick, though, for a confidence boost. A bit of a heel can help, since I’m very short, but I’ve mostly embraced my height and feel just fine in flats. Nothin’ wrong with being petite. ๐Ÿ˜€

8. Any pets?
A community tank of tropical fish. They’re starting to die off now that it’s been several years, so I need to restock soon. I used to have a few cherry barbs which multiplied, but now there’s just one big female left. She hangs out with one neon tetra. They’re really schooling fish, particularly the tetra, so I feel badly about them being by their lonesome. I also have five cories in the tank, which are still going strong. I used to have several of these little guys, and would really like to get some more:

9. What’s your ideal outfit, for any occasion you want?
I honestly love to sit in comfy pajamas at home on a weekend, just chilling.

10. Any wishlist items you’ve been eyeing lately?
I live in a few pairs of these flats in different colors, and need some new ones soon.

  1. Congrats on the award #2!
    I grew up with a tank full of fish – I used to love guppies but then learned that they ate their young… gulp!
    It’s so sweet of your hubby to buy you makeup – mine is more apt to give me a gift card and say “Here, pick out something for yourself” ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Oh man, guppies eat EVERYTHING. ๐Ÿ˜€

      It’s kinda good, in a way. They reproduce so often that if they didn’t eat off most of their young in captivity, the tank would be completely overrun.

      I used to save as many of the fry as I could (when I had platies in a much bigger tank), then ended up overstocked and I had to sell off like 30 fish. :O

      In a sense, a gift card would be more useful. He only ever gets me classic red makeup! LOL

  2. You’re very welcome, and thanks so much! โค I love that your husband picked you out some makeup, that’s so sweet.
    Ugh, oh no, that song!! It’s good, but my mom is OBSESSED with it because she has a crush on the singer and plays it all the time!
    You should pick up more of the tetras! =) Fish are wonderful, and it’s important to keep them happy!
