I was recently awarded the Cute Blog Award by two of my blogging pals: Ashesela of Art Evolve and Nory of Fierce Makeup and Nails. I also was given the Liebster Blog Award by two thoughtful bloggers: Cindy-y of Square Polish and Charlotte of Charlotte's Nails. Thanks, girls! :)

The Liebster Blog Award is given to blogs with under 200 followers. You can check out my previous Liebster Blog Award picks HERE if you'd like to check out some fabulous up and coming nail blogs! They're all more than worthy of a place in your news feed and I enjoy reading each of them.

As for the Cute Blog Award, is that owl adorable or what?! I've never received this award before, so that means I get to answer some questions and make some new picks to pass it on to!


1.What is your go to make up product?
Foundation (liquid set with powder) and mascara. I'll go to work or class without mascara on if I'm running super late but I typically don't go without wearing at least a little foundation unless I majorly overslept or feel super tired.

2. What was your favorite fashion trend of 2011?
The return of bright colors!

3. What is your favorite dessert?
French silk pie, especially from Baker's Square. The fact that the only Baker's Square in my entire state closed down several years ago still depresses me to this day.

4. Favorite color?
Pink--just not on my nails haha. For nails I like blue and green best.

5. What is your middle name?
Leigh, for a couple reasons but mostly after the actress Vivien Leigh. My dad picked it out.

6. What was the last song you listened to?
"Life On Mars?" by David Bowie

7. Cats or dogs?

8. Tell us something about yourself you haven't told us in your blog yet?
Hmm... Well, I guess I'll share something completely random: I recently wrote my college senior thesis on the symbolic and political impact of the JFK assassination on Lyndon Johnson's presidency. Yes, I write about things other than nail polish! :) I probably enjoyed myself way too much in the process; I find the entire subject matter and the personalities surrounding it to be completely fascinating. But I got a 4.0 on it so I was very proud of myself!

I'm passing this award on to:
Amanda of Amandalandish
Chelsea of The Nail Network


  1. Congratulations!!! This was so interesting! :D Great job on the 4.0!!!

  4. @Ashesela: Thank you! I'm glad it was entertaining to read. :)

    @MariJo: Thanks! I am an occasional pink polish lover; it's a complex relationship haha.

    @DragonLady: Thank you! I'll check it out!

  5. My, your name contains quite a bit of alliteration! It suits you. :) I notice your family likes classic actresses, awesome!!

  6. @Rach: Thank you! Yep, my dad is a big classic film buff--it's pretty cool--and Vivien Leigh is one of his favorite actresses. We also used to have a dog named Bogie, after Humphrey Bogart.

    1. Ahhhh! Haha, my aunt named her old shih tzu "Bogart" after Bogie, too. And there's a bar in my college town named Bogart's -- same idea. Haven't been there in an age!
