  5. Due to an obsession with the Daughters of the Moon series (see them – here!) and the fact that one of the girls in the series had my name, I spent the better part of 6th grade trying to convince people I was psychic and had premonitions. Nerdy to the max lol. Don’t you judge me!

  7. I wear glasses now due to too much time spent on the computer. Hoorah! 
Nominations for Both One Lovely & Very Inspiring Blogger: 

Very Inspiring Blogger Award + Tag!


To me, these blogger awards are akin to my receiving packages in the mail – I basically turn into a giddy 12 year old fawning over shiny, happy things.

Special thanks to Masquerade21 over @BeautyandtheBestoftheRest, whose blog I’m always perusing and reading for the latest in beauty, fashion and frankly reading whatever she posts on; she’s just an interesting read and I like to lurk in peoples’ lives okay!

I am Italian Sicilian AND Irish so this sort of nosiness just can’t be helped; it runs in my blood!

Okay, enough rant, onto the Rules:

~Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

~Share 7 things about yourself

~Nominate 7 bloggers you admire

~Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.

7 Things About Me

  1. I have been fantasizing daily about going to the Wizarding World of HP for the past 2 months. I’m a HUGE fan and it’s seriously some sort of crime that I haven’t been yet!!
  2. I ❤ jasmine green tea.
  3. My current favorite fruit is the blood orange – seems super stereotypical since I am Italian, but whatever, I’m owning it!
  4. I own a Nissan Versa, which I bought purely because I wanted the car that I saw Hiro driving in Heroes – I know, I am such a victim of product placement!
  5. I have 3 vinyl decals on my car – Sign of the Deathly Hallows, Mockingjay and a purple Zombie Hello Kitty.
  6. I seem to have a bit of an obsession with saying “Blam!” lately whenever I want to sound impressive. It’s kind of ridiculous, but it makes me laugh so there. Don’t you try and steal my simple joys in life!
  7. I am in the process of getting a membership at Crunch Gym so look forward to random posts about how I am doing weird workouts such as Anti-Gravity Yoga and Body Web TRX.

7 Bloggers I Admire

  1. Mae’s Beauty Reports – HER NAILS ARE AMAZING!
  2. Elena @Love212 – She has lovely DIY style and fashion posts!
  3. Jenn @CosmeticMonster – Most Amazing and Adorable Blog Layout + Top notch beauty reviews!
  4. Shauna @THEFIGHTFORFITNESS – She is such as buff bada$$ . Seriously.
  5. Kirsten @F00dVentures – My BFF across the USA, this girl is SO knowledgeable about health and nutrition + she has serious creative genius in the recipe and food idea department!
  6. Athena @Fitness & Feta – I just find her so inspiring. She is so super fit and lovely + she always offers great workout ideas and play lists!
  7. Whitney @Wands&Pliers – Combining Harry Potter love and Beauty is THE BEST IDEA EVER! I’m almost mad I didn’t think of it first, but then I like this blog too much to be jelly!

Definitely recommend all these blogs!
