Stylish Blogger Award!

Melina Bee honored me with an award for stylish bloggers.  Very thoughtful and exciting!  I love the Pay It Forward-ness of it.

The Rules:
1) Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2) Share 7 things about yourself.
3) Award 10 recently discovered bloggers.
4) Contact those bloggers and let them know they’ve won.

Seven Things I Haven't Mentioned Here Before:

1. I'll finish up my degree in medical laboratory science this winter!  That means, upon graduation and taking my certification exam, I'll be eligible to work in a hospital laboratory, perform tests, and analyze all sorts of patient specimens.  Like blood work and that sort of thing.  Interesting stuff!

2. I adore animals.  Right now I have a Maine Coon cat named Chin who plays fetch and is almost always my constant companion at home.  She's fantastic.  One day I'd also like to have a papillon or maybe a greyhound.

Chin--she's the prettiest girl in the world

3.  Honestly, I love music even more than makeup.  Thanks to my dad, I have a pretty extensive collection of rare vinyl records.  My favorite is a certified gold Beatles record to commemorate their selling over a million copies of the single "Here Comes The Sun"!   Sometimes I really miss working in a music store.

4.  Although camping is not exactly my idea of a good time, at least once in my life I want to go camp at Burning Man, Bonnaroo, or Coachella.  Those festivals sound so incredibly fun and I think it would be the ultimate out-of-my-comfort-zone experience for me.

5. I despise most "chick flicks."  The Notebook makes me cringe and most romantic comedies these days are utterly insipid and predictable.  But oh god do I love Sex and the City... 

6. I'm obsessed with the idea of modifying a pair of heels into the heel-less shoes Daphne Guinness wears.  I found how-to instructions online, now I just need a pair of shoes to mutilate.  Wish me luck!


7.  It absolutely blows my mind that so many fascinating, wonderful people are interested in what I write here.  You guys are the BEST and I can never thank you enough.
