In case you weren’t already convinced of my Step-Mom awesomeness – this AWARD now proves it!
Today after meeting with my publisher with the list of oh so many things to do, I received the Laine Blogger Award from a wonderful fellow blogging Mom, Mom-Spirational, and for a second I was reminded how great I must actually be!
There is of course, as with any hard earned award, a catch. I must now share with you all the answers to 5 super embarrassing and hugely evasive questions ( you only wish) and then pass on this daunting task to 5 other equally if not more deserving bloggers who I personally think ROCK the sense of BEAUTY in a blogging sense.
So here goes.
1. What is Your Current Beauty Obsession?
Easily Victoria’s Secret Such a Flirt body lotion. There is something to be said for a lotion that takes a rushed 10 minute shower of a thirty-something mom of 3, whose children believe that shower time is not private time, nor any time in the bathroom for that matter (see there is the evasive embarrassing part) and makes you feel like you just soaked in starfruit and white orchid milk bath! Oh the secrets Victoria holds.
2. What is the One Beauty Item You Wish You Owned?
A secret high tech weapon that terrified the crap out of any hair on my body and didn’t cost a dime! No shaving, no tweezing my eyebrows or sitting in the car at a stoplight utilizing the BEST natural light that finds every imperfection and those same 3 chin hairs that pop up in the same spot every other day…but then again what would I do without the need for that control of finding and plucking those little boogers!?!
3. What is Your Favorite Topic To Read About?
Honest, true-life, biographies about any person that wasn’t/isn’t afraid to admit to the world that they messed up, didn’t follow the path of everyone else, that did their own thing, and figured life out. People baring their souls to the judgement of our ridiculous world is very inspiring!
4. What Inspired You to Become a Blogger?
In short, you always hear people say they didn’t ask for your opinion, or want it. Well in my opinion my opinion is a good one to matter, so I made a place where people come for just that, MY OPINION!
However, on a more real side, I like millions of others, have been through hell and back – and with what I have been through, there is no way I could let the lessons I struggled though, the paths I built one pebble at a time, go un-shared, and un-validated to the many people who need to know they aren’t alone.
5. What nail polish are you wearing right now?
Nail polish – nope, nada – ACRYLIC – Rockstar Baby!! Its a sparkly blue which makes the sounds on the keys as I type either as happy or irritated as I feel like being.
And now for the awesome part…..My 5 choices of blogging awesomeness
Thanks again for blog-spiration!
