I'd like to thank the Academy...

OMGosh you guys! I got my very first blog award!
How incredibly cool is that? Let me tell you, it is flippin awesome because 1) I've never gotten a blog award before and 2) Well...uhm, I've never gotten a blog award before....

The gorgeous Kalina over at Te Amo Mucho awarded me with The Versatile Blogger award. Which apparently means that I am way super awesome :). Seriously! You all should really check out Kalina's blog, like right now. Because she is awesome. And plus, Kalina is a beautiful name so yeah, just go read it now. Thank you again Kalina! You ROCK!

OK, so now I'm supposed to follow a few simple rules:

1) Thank & Link back to the person who gave you the award (check)
2) Answer 10 questions (almost check!)
3) Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy (i don't know who to choose, you are all awesome!)
4) Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

Simple, right? Well...except for maybe deciding on just seven blogs to pass the award on to. Can't I just give it to all of you?! Well...maybe I can avoid deciding so soon by answering the questions:

1. Why did you create this blog?
I created this blog as a way to not only put my thoughts and feelings about things out there, but also as a way to find people that I relate to. And I definitely have found many!
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
I follow a lot of crafty people, since I'm getting into the whole crafting thing myself. I just follow whomever I want to follow, if there is just one post that catches my eye, chances are that I will follow you.
3. Favorite Make-Up Brand?
I adore M.A.C.! But, trying to buy MAC make-up in Hawaii is crazy, it's so expensive here. So mostly, I use Avon. Which is a very good brand, don't get me wrong, but if I had my way I'd definitely use MAC all day, every day.
4. Favorite Clothing Brand?
I love everything Old Navy.

5. Indispensable Make-Up Product?
Mascara or eye liner. I don't need any other make-up as long as I have those two on hand!
6. Favorite Color?
green, for sure!
7. Favorite Perfume?
Costa Rica by mark. It smells amazing. I've been using it for years, it's definitely my signature scent.
8. Favorite Film?
Right now, I'm pretty much obsessed with Tangled, so we'll go with that.
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
New Zealand! Homygosh, I am so dying to go there, it's crazy! I've been dying to go there since High School. I love how the Maori culture is so similar to the Hawaiian culture and I'd love to learn more.
10. Would you rather forget to put on mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Forget the mascara, My eyelashes are naturally long and curly and it looks like I have mascara on, even when I'm not using it, so it wouldn't make too much of a difference.

OK, I'm passing this award on to:
1. Stephanie at The Odd Duck {she is just awesome, check her out now.}
2. Celina at (Not) So Single {i love reading her adventures in married life. she & her husband are adorable}
3. Lauren at Busy Bee Lauren {she has the cutest style ever & she takes awesome pictures!}
4. 'Ihi at Pupuka Baby {she's the only one on this list that i know personally. she's super awesome and i heart her, so there}
5. Smiling is Good for Your Teeth {she & her fiance are adorable & i love reading all about her wedding plans}
6. Jenny May at The Swede Records {she's super pretty & i just love reading all of her blog entries!}
7. Rachel at Life. {she's super funny & i feel like i can relate to her. idk}

I wish that I could give away 500 billion of these awards cause you are all awesome. But, congrats to those lovely ladies up there & thank you again Kalina!


  1. Aw yay!! I'm so excited!! Haha I totally feel like I can relate to you too :)
    And this might sound really lame of me....but when you first followed me a few months ago I tried to follow your blog too, but I couldn't find this I followed you on tumblr...but I kind of suck at tumblr...haha so I'm really glad you nominated me because now I found your real blog! Hooray!

  2. Woo! Good for you! You deserve a blog award. Keep up the great work, and I can see you getting a lot of awards. =] And this is my first blog award too, haha. Thanks for giving me the warm fuzzies inside!

  3. Yay yay yay! Congrats to you again and congrats to the blog ladies you awarded :) I really need to go see Tangled. It looks like such a cute movie!
