This post will pale in comparison to how I actually feel. I am so thankful to each and every one of you that has read a post (or many,) interacted with me in some way, and has shown support in a multitude of ways! Thank you times a million!
I have recently, and not so recently, have been nominated for a couple of blogging awards. I kind of decided to break the rules a bit and create my own award! I didn’t think you wanted to read another long post about me, so I decided to flip the focus and make it about those who nominated me. In case you wanted to read about me, you can catch it here in my first Liebster Award nomination. If you’d like to hear more about this new *award* I’d like to create, I’ll explain it more below the nominations!
I would like to thank the following lovelies for the nominations!
Zoe (I think that’s your name.. got it from your contact email!) from HomeFamilyWork for nominating me for the Liebster Award! I am super late on this one, I guess from slacking on my notifications the beginning of March! I blame beauty boxes! Anyway she has a fun blog on beauty with some sprinkling of life bits in between. I enjoyed reading her uses for Vaseline which you can read here! Even though everyone says it’s bad for you… I love it anyways!!
Luzz05 (sadly I don’t know your name!) for nominating me for the Liebster Award! What a great blog for makeup reviews and more! She has given me some serious beauty box and makeup palette envy! I especially liked her post on BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic which you can read here. The swatches definitely make me want this palette!
Brittany from Life in Lipstick for nominating me for the Creative Blogger Award! She writes about everything from wine to art to beauty and just about everything in between. I recently found out we have some silly similarities too! One of my favorites posts from her blog is a recipe for Peanut Butter Blondies… which I just can’t wait to try! Check it out here!
Rhiannon from Smilesweetie HQ for nominating me for the Beauty Blog Tag! What a lovely beauty blog she has with some great pictures! I especially like the post called Queen of Clean where she talks about how she organized all her beauty goods. I’m all about organization in my life! Check out her post here!
Samantha from The Pink Apple for nominating me for the Miranda Sings Award! This beauty blog touches upon hair, makeup, and some other great stuff in various other categories. I particularly like her recent post on MAC lipsticks. I love swatches more than anything and she included a whole bunch in her post that you can read here!
So I think that has been all the wonderful beauty tags I have slacked on in the month of March! Thank you so so SO much again to these beautiful humans for including me in their blogging worlds.
Now for some blogs I think deserve some love… there were so many I would like to choose. However, I tried to pick some that are just starting up, I’ve had some great connections with, or just deserve some attention! I only stopped because I didn’t want to wind up listing 100 blogs ha! So please feel free to participate if I haven’t added you to the list below.
- Simply JCM
- That Geeky Girlfriend
- Kanza’s Beauty Blog
- Blissful Not Stressful
- Emily Marie
- Statements in Basements
- Clares Beauty Blog
- Beauty by Amy XO
- Racing for Rose
- The Moore The Merrier
- Celestial Kitten
I actually will let you choose what you would like to participate in… The Liebster Award, The Creative Blogger Award, The Beauty Blog Tag, or The Miranda Sings Award.
If you would like to stray the path a little…you can help me create a new award! Lets call it the Spread Kindness Award! I’m totally up for suggestions too ha… What we can do with this new internet award is bring some of our favorite newbies some light. You can give a shout out to a few blogs that have caught your interest or maybe some followers you want to thank. Similar to what I did above or with your own twist! Instead of set rules, I’ll give some suggestions based on what I did:
- List anywhere from 2 to 10 blogs that you want to thank for their support
- Give a little insight as to what their blog is about
- Link back to their blog, either a specific post you enjoyed or their home page
- Nominate any number of blogs that are either new to the blogging scene or have caught your attention in a separate list
- *If you’re on the receiving end of the nominations, give a shout out to the blog who nominated you or include them in your list of blogs to thank when you accept the award*
Hopefully none of that was too confusing! If you’d like to help me in creating this thankful award I would absolutely LOVE it! Feel free to take some creative liberties and make it your own as well. Either way all I ask is that you keep spreading the love and help the beauty community grow! Kindness is always free and you will never regret it XOXO
Thank you again for all your kind words and support!
Fun Fact: I created the award picture because I love Peonies and extremely girly looking photos ♥
