The Versatile Blogger Award

Last week I was given the Versatile Blogger award from Miranda at Miranda’s Makeup & More. I want to say thank you Miranda, this is my very first blog award! I feel very special for being recognized by a blogger that I really like and respect, so thank you again.

Please check her blog out. She always has posts on great deals for your beauty needs, swatches, hauls, looks of the day and more. I also love that she has mixed posts with not only beauty, but also things about her life and herself.

The Rules:

1: Thank the person who nominated you and give them a shout out on your blog with a link to their blog.

2: Share 7 random facts about yourself.

3: Send on the award to 15 bloggers whose blogs that you appreciate and then let them know that they have won the award.

My 7 random facts:

1: First off, I am the only redhead in my family! No, I’m not adopted; red hair can in fact be found on both sides of my family tree, it just skipped quite a few generations before showing up again :). I believe my great grandfather on my dad’s side was the last before me.

2: I wanted to be a geneticist but I found organic chemistry to be way too overwhelming for me, did a complete 180 with my college career, and ended up majoring in Sociology: Organizational Studies, with a minor in Communications from the University of California, Davis.

3: I play the clarinet and was in band from junior high through college. Yes, I am a band geek!

4: I have been wearing make-up since the 7th grade and have always enjoyed it, but not until about 7 months ago did I really start to embrace my love for the stuff, and couldn’t be happier that I have!

5: I know this is uncommon, but I am not a fan of Christmas music. I love the holidays and pretty much everything about this time of year, except the music. I think working 5 years in a coffee shop with it playing non-stop on repeat from Thanksgiving through New Year ruined it for me for a while.

6: I enjoy playing and watching sports, even if I’m not very good at them. I really enjoy tennis (playing) and American football (watching), but I’m really rusty when it comes to tennis. I don’t get to play as often as I’d like to.

7:  What else… I’m actually quite obsessed with the Elizabethan era England/UK/Europe, the Tudor family, and all of its history. I can’t explain why, but that time period has always fascinated me. I would give pretty much anything for a time machine and the ability to go there in person simply to see what it was really like (as long as I had the ability to come back! I like my rights as a woman and of course indoor plumbing). 

Now to pass on the award!

These are 15 blogs that I find myself consistently reading and/or enjoying. I hope you'll check them out and enjoy them as much as I do!
