Today when I woke up, I was very humbled to see a few things going on with this blog! I had reached 170+ followers, I checked the mail (It was Christmas in July, a special thanks to Le Buerre Shop for the products to review!!) Last but not least, I received a comment on my post, Sampling my way to new favorites from Simply Sara (http://www.simplysara.co.uk/) had nominated me for the Liebster award! (EDIT: I have now been nominated twice, and I will post the second nomination this evening!) I am so humbled because I have not had this blog long, and still tend to question my newbie skills! Haha.

Favorite childhood Tv program?
I would have to say that my number one favorite show as a child was The Adventures of Pete and Pete! This show was hilarious, and truly still is! I can honestly say that I would not be the same person I am today if not for this show. Pete and Pete's episodes focused on the everyday situations kids face, while helping them to see things in a another light, to find fun and adventure in everything you do, while even learning some valuable lessons from time to time! This show is GOLD!
Do you prefer Cats or Dogs?
Animals are a serious passion of mine, so this question is a little bit more on the difficult side! Honestly I love both Cats and Dogs, but Dogs are my true love! I have two dogs, Bear and Jack. They are my world. Dogs have a deep connection with their owners, they can tell when we are happy, sick, or even upset, and they are always available for true comfort. I love the kitties, don't get me wrong. I just find a much deeper bond with my dogs than I ever felt with my cats. Having dogs in my life also benefits my own health and well being, by keeping me physically active!
What's your all time favorite Makeup brand?
I think my all time favorite would have to be a toss between Benefit and Too Faced! I chose these as my staple brands because they both cover most of my cosmetic needs! Benefit has the most amazing concealers, highlighters, blushes, and mascaras, but Too Faced makes some of my favorite eye shadows, eye liners, and bronzers. I never found a mineral powder by either brand, however, so I have to include Glo Minerals for the amazing pressed mineral foundations they have!
Favorite Holiday destination?
Mountain Home, Arkansas!! I was born and raised in Ohio, near Cincinnati, as was the rest of my family. My Pap-paw had developed M.S, and decided to move to the gorgeous Ozark Mountains, about five years ago to escape the dull scenery, unreasonably cold temperatures, and less than friendly locals of New Miami, Ohio. I have gone to visit him there twice, and I would go a hundred more. It is BEAUTIFUL and nearly untouched by humans! The Ozark's are a must see, if you have not. Besides, this is the only region that the red fern grows!! :)
As far as an Ohio stay-cation, I always went up to Put-In-Bay/Port Clinton/Kelly's Island/Sandusky for some fun and beautiful scenery.
I go for the food, boating, fishing, biking, and hiking! It is a cost effective way to vacation somewhere not so far away!
The very best feeling is knowing that you have an AMAZING vacation spot just 30 minutes from home! I have recently moved to Astor, Florida.
I am less than an hour from both Ocala and Daytona Beach! Home, sweet home!!!
If you had to live on one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Potatoes. Can you think of a more yummy, versatile food?
Limey-Greens, bright pinks!
Do you like Themeparks? If so which one is your fave?
No, I LOVE THEM! Being raised ear Cincinnati, Ohio, I was always within a short driving distance to King's Is;land in Mason, Ohio. It is a really nice, and large theme park, that has been there, long before I was born! Also, just a couple of hours north, you have the infamous Cedar Park, boasting some of the most high, and fast coasters in the country!
Do you have any pets?
I have two male dogs! Jack is a 5 year old white Husky/Shiba Inu mix, he is gorgeous. He is slightly timid, but the most loving dog imaginable. Jack is my boyfriend's dog really, but I think Jack decided otherwise. He even now joins my Schipperke- Chihuahua mix, Bear, in following me EVERYWHERE, including the restroom!
Favorite clothing store?
Free People, without a doubt.
One thing you can't live without?
A great cup of Italian Roast coffee, with a small amount of sugar and half+half!! :)
I found Mickayla on a forum I follow on Makeup Talk.Her blogging skills are off the charts, and she is very thorough with her reviews and photos! She is very inspiring!
Thanks for reading, Ladies! I will have my 11 nominations up by the end of the night!!! :)
