  3. Nominate other bloggers and get them to answer your own questions!

Mony’s questions:

1. What’s your favourite social network? I love wordpress because of interaction here. But I love facebook to keep in touch with family and friends.

2. What’s your favourite skincare brand? At the moment, Paula’s Choice.

versatile-blogger2

I have been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Beginner Beaute. Thanks! If you haven’t checked out her blog, please do! Sorry for the delay in doing this, but better late than never!

Moving ahead with the award, following are the super duper easy rules:

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  2. Include a link to their blog
  3. Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link back to the post on your site announcing their nomination.
  5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Seven things about me:

1. I love to cook, but I really do not enjoy baking.

2. When I was in grade school (grade 6 or 7, I don’t remember exactly) I played trumpet, and clarinet.

3. I’ve always wanted to learn to play the violin or cello.

4. Despite being amazingly clumsy, the only bones that I’ve even broken have been toes.

5. I had a hand-me-down pet iguana named Lemmy (after Lemmy Kilmister) that HATED me. It would play dead every time I went near his tank. Sadly he is no longer with us.

6. I watched my knee surgery being performed. (It wasn’t nearly as cool as it sounds)

7. I love corgis. When I see one, I am instantly happy. Some day I will own one!

I nominate: 

Who would like to be nominated? Let me know, and I will happily do so!

Thanks for reading! ❤

Just a few more awards and tags left to do. I’ll get through them all eventually!

Mini Haul from The Body Shop

I’m on a no-buy for the month of June. And technically I did not break my no buy as the mini haul from The Body Shop was purchased by my awesome mother (who is obsessed with The Body Shop) as a treat!

I picked out the Vitamin C facial cleansing polish, Rainforest Radiance hair butter for colour treated hair, and a Lip Butter (because I am addicted to lip balms). Once I’ve had a chance to use all three of my treats, I will post reviews of everything.

Have a beautiful day! ❤

I have a few more awards and tags to finish up. Hopefully I’ll get them done in the next day or so.

Allergic to the “E” Challenge Tag

I was tagged by Stash Matters to do this evil evil writing tag – hahaha!

Rules:

  1. Write a paragraph (sounds easy, right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy?).
  2. By reading this, you are already signed up.
  3. Select at least 5 bloggers to do this challenge. They must complete it within 24 hours or else it is considered as failure.
  4. If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.
  5. If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.

Here goes my attempt, it was harder to do than I expected (since there were no guidelines for how large the paragraph had to be, I did as much as I was able to do):

I do yoga on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. It is difficult but fun. I did not think that I would enjoy doing it, but now I find it fabulous! On mornings that I don’t do yoga, I will go for a run, and try to run for up to an hour. Post run, I usually sit in a hot bath and soak  for as long as I can.

My list of nominees:

Ladybugs & Pugs

Beginner Beaute

The Girl In Glasses

Valentina Sophia

My Lip Addiction

You have until midnight June 24, 2015 to do this tag! If you’ve already done this one, please don’t feel pressure to do it again.
