Tag & Awards

I'm finally home and all snug in my bed. Home cooked food has never tasted better and my Christmas tree is finally up! Now the only thing that's missing is my older brother who's still back at his university, what an idiot. He better get back for Christmas or he'll have me to answer to. So I have a billion outfit pictures to upload from the past two weeks but they can wait. I received two very lovely awards recently that I want to pass onto some of you guys:

The always lovely Monika from Monika's Corner awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award.
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which you think are fabulous.
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Be sure to let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

I'm passing this award onto: Jasmine from Transient Withdrawal, Bug from In Bug's Drawers, Tieka from Selective Potential, Jenny from Fashion for Writers, Healthy and Homemade, Marie from Lemondrop Vintage, Caroline from COSMICaroline, Camilla from Rainbow Paving Stones, Julie from Orchid Grey, and Erika from Cafe Fashionista.

Ms. Gee from La Bella Vita et Moi also awarded me with The Haute Mess Award. She's so sweet! :)

I think I'm supposed to write 7 facts about myself then tag 7 people:
1) My top four most disliked foods are mushrooms, eggplant, squid, and lima beans. Sorry, you guys just don't appeal to my taste buds :(
2) I used to take ballet for a couple of years when I was younger but I dropped out because I never had enough patience to practice and didn't take it seriously.
3) If I ever go broke and can't find a job, I'm going to write a soap opera based on my recent love rectangle.
4) I have more scarves then I' ll ever wear (and my mom isn't too happy about that).
5) I'm a very impatient person.
6) Back in my middle school days, when my parents thought I was sound asleep, I would rock out to Simple Plan, Britney Spears, and Avril Lavigne.
7) When I was 1 and on my first airplane ride, I stood up on my seat and started pulling out the hairs from the balding gentleman sitting in front of me.

Passing this award onto: Lauren from This Little Piggie, Leah, English Rose, The Owl's Closet, Kerri from Wear Necessities, Natalya from Wear Necessities, and Taylor from Auburn Not Red.

Finally, Corinna from Feathers and Air (one of my favorite bloggers) tagged me to take part in Cassie's Therapy Video. Such an adorable idea :)

The Task: fill in 12 likes, 1 love and 8 hates like Cassie in her therapy video. Below, the bolded things are what you MUST include. Also, please link it back to me, and link it onto 3 other blogs you admire!

Abracadabra, Wow! 
I like boys with goofy smiles and girls without inhibitions.
I like running around in snow storms.
I like coming back indoors from a snow storm to a cup of hot chocolate.
I like honey and banana sandwiches made with love.
I like hugs from behind.
I like laughing until my sides hurt.
I like sitting alone with my thoughts in the cold night air.
I like long car rides with my friends.
I like being obnoxious in public and not giving a shit.
I like wearing fake moustaches.
I like getting packages in the mail.
I like sending packages in the mail.
I love knowing you've made the right decision.
Today is Christmas Eve and the lights on the tree are twinkling.
In some ways, I love everything.
It's less, of a thing to like, it's less distinct, it's less particular.
I like things that I like but I love everything.
There's more choice in like,
Cause even the worst things have things you love in them.
I don't know what you mean about things I dislike.

I hate having to pay for shipping.
I hate when my foot falls asleep.
I hate when i make others feel horrible.
I hate disappointment.
I hate people who think they know better than you.
I hate when people don't flush the toilet in public bathrooms.
I hate when the car takes too long to warm up.
I hate when people judge without at least trying to understand.
I hate this, wow...

I pass this tag along to these three beautiful bloggers: MJ from dreaming spires and old car tyres, Elaine from Clothed Much, and Michelle from Glisters and Blisters!

I have an urge to tag 20 more people but alas, I cannot. Maybe next time :(
Keep an eye out for my upcoming Christmas giveaway! ;)
Hope you guys are staying beautiful and safe during the holidays!
