Catching Up

6:43 PM Laura 4 Comments

Phew! Three weeks is a long time to be away, but I'm finally back at home sweet home. I was recently given a whole pile of awards, so I should probably post those because I'm too tired to fish out my camera and upload all my nail polish pictures.

Oh, and I'm now at 40 followers! *confetti drops* Followers are awesome. I love you all. I might come up with a contest of some sort when I hit 100 followers. (I don't expect that to happen any time soon, but hey, a girl can dream...) Not a giveaway because giveaways are just schemes to get more followers. Well, not all of them, but I hate giveaways that have all those bonus entries that you can get from Tweeting and Facebooking and dancing naked in the street with the blog's name painted on your bare, sorry behind. Yeah, not so much into that sort of thing because I think they're unfair. I personally don't have a Facebook or Twitter account so I'm automatically at a disadvantage when I enter a giveaway. I know there are others like me and I don't like that sort of thing so I'm never gonna do that to you guys!

Besides, contests are more fun anyway. You get to see a bunch of cool shizz, so that's always awesome.

Wait, what was I writing this post about? Oh, right, awards.

Let's start with the Top 10 award from Stompy Boot at Konad Abuse.

Ooh... shiny...

Rules! Huzzah!

1. Thank the person who tagged you and link to their blog.
2. Put the Top 10 Award logo on your blog.
3. List your top 10 cosmetics.
4. Choose 10 bloggers to tag, link to their blogs, and let them know.

Thank you to the lovely and fabulous Stompy Boot, who I will link to again just because I can.

Look at the logoooo. It's up there. ^

My top ten cosmetics. Hmm. This is going to be a little bit difficult. I don't really wear makeup, to be honest. I'll do my best...

1. Nail polish (I had to do it).

2. Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara in Blackish Brown. Maybe it's Brownish Black? I'll admit, I do love mascara.

3. Almay Intense i-Color Eyeliner in Brown Topaz. It's nice and shimmery (shimmerrrr. It happens to be my favorite nail polish finish as well. Coincidence? I think not).

4. That's about where the actual makeup ends. Let's see... I love body wash. I like Bath and Body Works body wash in Japanese Cherry Blossom.

5. I also like Dove Go Fresh body wash in Green Tea Cucumber.

6. I really like Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner... I think Hello Hydration would be my favorite (coconut! Yum) but I switch around between all of them because they all smell so deliciousss.

7. For some reason I always end up using Garnier Fructis hair styling products. I'm the type of person who gets something different every time, but this is the only hair product stuff I have. I guess they're doing something right...

8. Bath and Body Works (love that place) body spray stuff in Forever Sunshine.

9. So... close... must... think... ummm... I have this really awesome Urban Outfitters peacock headband that I love. Does that count?

10. Gosh... Okay. I have these amazing beaded earrings that are like, flipping incredible. I'll have to take a picture of them sometime to show you guys.

Well! That was difficult. Hope I didn't stretch it too much...

And now for the big guns! Polish Amor passed on to me a whopping four awards! Holy shamoley! These are apparently getting passed around in a bundle, and I'm not complaining! 


1. Thank the person that gave you the award and link them back.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this onto 15 bloggers.
4.Tell the people that you gave the award to.

A resounding MUCHAS GRACIAS, MERCI BEAUCOUP, and THANK YOU VERY MUCH KIND LADY to the fantastic Polish Amor, who I will also link to again because I think four awards warrants double linkage. Possibly triple.

Seven things about myself! Yay, this makes me happy. Seven is my favorite number. You don't mess with seven. It ate nine, remember?

1. I love strawberries.

2. I am somewhere between 5'6" and 5'7" but I'm too lazy to go measure myself and give you an accurate height.

3. I have a dog named Jake who does lots of cute things.

Look ma! My face is totally detached from my body!

Ah, being a dog is such hard work... Oh wait, no it's not.

Stop taking pictures and play with me, mofo.

4. I also have a cat named Pearl who is apparently Jabba the Hut.

Or drunk.

5. I love reality TV. America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, The Real Housewives of Who Cares Where, Kardashians & Co., you name it, I'll watch it. Except I draw the line at stuff like Hoarders and Wifeswap. That's just too much.

6. I want to tour Europe really badly... especially France, England, Italy, and Greece.

7. My first stuffed animal was a cat that I named Jelly. Yeah, I don't know what it means either.

Goodness gracious that was exhausting. It seems I have come across a slew of awards lately and I am just too tired to tag people, not to mention I don't want to keep giving awards to the same people over and over again. I want to spread the looove. So I'm not going to do any tags for these, at least not right now.

Thanks again to Stompy and Polish Amor! (Could I link them out one more time? Answer: Yes and yes)

Have a fabulous day!


  1. *trOuble commenting earlier... Sorry!
    I am in total agreement about contests vs giveaways! Count me in for whatever you end up deciding on! Love your dog, looks like a lot of fun!

  2. No worries about the comments! And I can't wait till I have enough followers to do some sort of contest/giveaway... and Jake is quite the schmoozer. He is also a spastic nutcase.

  3. I'm glad you're back! There was a couple days there with no post- I felt deprived! :) What about Buddy? He deserves some love!

  4. He doesn't take funny pictures. He's too full of himself.


Yay comments! Whenever you leave a comment, a triple rainbow happens.

**I don't like having to say this, but I must: Do not link drop! I don't care if you tell me you want to send me a million dollars, if you leave a link in your comment, I'm deleting it. I work hard for any and all traffic I get, and stealing it is a major no-no! Follow blogging etiquette, please.**
