Hello everyone and happy weekend!! I hope that all of you are up to lots of fun and are enjoying some R&R time! Lifewithlilred just got nominated for its third Mystery Blogger Award by my friend over at Glam With Platinumm and I am so thankful and excited! Definitely go check out this wonderful blog, which is filled with the most amazing beauty and makeup tips! Many many thanks. I love doing these award posts so much. I know that they are easy to shy away from, but I figure that it’s the least that I can do if one of my friends has gone out of their way to nominate me! So take a look at the rules and then let’s discuss:

The Rules:

  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide the link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide the link, as well.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Answer Questions from the nominee.
  • Nominate 10-20 people.

  2. Peach margaritas and sangria are my summer drink weaknesses! Peach flavored anything is my favorite.
  3. My 23rd birthday is on June 7th and I take to celebrating for most of June, birth-month style.

Q & A:

What do you love about blogging? I love all of the new friends that I’ve made through lifewithlilred. I am lucky enough to be able to Skype and FaceTime with quite a few of them and that is so special to me.

What is your holy grail beauty product? Mmm…Probably The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Skin Boost. I’ve been using that product for years and my skin has thanked me kindly for it.

What is your biggest pet peeve? EVERYTHING. Uhhh, but probably people who take forever to text back and I really hate those who walk around talking on their Bluetooth, which just looks like a big cockroach attached to their ear.

Sunshine Blogger Award #3

Sunshine Blogger Award #3

Hi everyone and happy weekend! My third Sunshine Blogger Award is brought to you by one of my literal favorite blogging babes on the planet – the darling K.M. from Ankhor You. K.M. is one of the sweetest, funniest gals that I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is sunshine and also a mermaid. So thank you, my beautiful friend – I love ya!! In conclusion: READ HER BLOG! Alright, let’s do this:

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the questions
  • Ask your own questions
  • Nominate eleven fellow bloggers

Q & A:

1) The most important question: How do you take your coffee (Or tea)? If I’m drinking hot coffee, then black. But if I’m drinking iced coffee, a splash of cream is a must.

2) What are you most excited about this summer? A guy who I’m totally in love with is coming to see me for my birthday! And then I’ll be visiting him in North Carolina at some point, too! I CAN’T WAIT.

3) How did you pick your blog name? Lil Red was a nickname given to me by one of my favorite coworkers when I was at PacSun and it just stuck. It was fitting, thanks to my signature red hair and red lips so that was what I was usually referred to throughout the store by my customers and coworkers alike. So when I needed to create a name for my blog, I thought that lifewithlilred flowed perfectly.

4) What is a television show that you are currently obsessed with? FARGO!! Season three is on right now and I friggen love it. Okay, then.

5) Lipstick or lip gloss (or none)? Lipstick. Matte red lipstick for days. Lip gloss is just too much for me, I’m not a fan and I never have been.

6) What is one place that you would sell your soul to visit or to go back to? EUROPE! Obvs. I’d also love to visit one of my darling blogging friends in Uganda.

7) What is a fashion trend that you are obsessed with this season? I don’t follow trends, I set them! 😉 No, but seriously, trends are something that just doesn’t interest me so I don’t go out of my way to find out about them. When it comes to my personal style, I’d much rather do my own thing.

8) What is your song for the summer? Uhhh… I dunno!

9) What is one thing that always makes you smile? MY DOGS!! :*)

10) Morning or evening person? A little bit of both.

11) What is your favorite sport to watch or play? (and yes shopping DOES count 😉) Figure skating! Both watching and playing, since I used to be a competitive skater. I miss it terribly!

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. Are you constantly early or running late?
  2. Who was your grade school best friend?
  3. What was the name of your first pet?
  4. Favorite ice cream flavor?
  5. Do you sunburn or tan?
  6. Any big summer plans?
  7. Last show you binge watched?
  8. One embarrassing song on your iPod?
  9. Biggest guilty pleasure?
  10. Favorite way to relax?
  11. Last song you listened to?

Thank you so much again to my darling K.M. for nominating me for my third Sunshine Blogger Award! How would you answer some of K.M.’s questions? How about some of mine? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

  3. Prison TV shows are my favorite and Bea Smith from Wentworth is my red haired spirit animal.

When was your favorite birthday? Even though I don’t remember much of my 22nd birthday, I had a really great party and everyone told me after how much fun that they had! So, I’m guessing that I had fun, too!

The Rules:

  • Answer 11 questions given to you
  • Tag 11 people
  • Give 11 questions

Q & A:

Onesie or Dressing Gown?

Definitely a nightie or a cute matching pajama pants and top set. I’m so obsessed with PJs as of late but I will never EVER wear a onesie – I personally think that they’re a bit ridiculous!

Bath or Shower?

For practicality purposes a shower but if I want to relax and have some me time, then a nice warm bubble bath.

What song are you currently obsessed with? (Mine is Green Light by Lorde)

Uhmmmm…. I’ve fallen into an unfortunate pop punk circa my high school years phase and am loving the album Underdog Alma Mater by Forever The Sickest Kids. Particularly “My Worst Nightmare”.

If you could have any chocolate bar in the world what would it be?

Trader Joe’s has this AMAZING dark chocolate bar that has chili powder and pop rocks in it and I freaking love it. I could totally eat like ten of them lol.

You’re having dinner with a historical figure, who would it be?

Hmm… I’m not sure. Does Johnny Depp count? haha

Why do you like blogging?

I love to blog because of all of the amazing friends that I have made all over the world. Blogging has put me in touch with people who I don’t think I would have met otherwise and I am so thankful for that.

What is your favorite blog to read at the moment?

Too many to count!

Cozy night in or wild night out?

I like both. Like, last night one of my girlfriends came over and we just drank some wine and watched Wentworth and it was a blast. But I do love going out to the bars with my friends when I’m feeling saucy.

Where do you dream of visiting and why?

Europe! Specifically Paris so that I can perfect my French!

What is your go-to choice for brunch?

It depends on what I’m in the mood for. If I want breakfast food, then definitely some type of fritatta and hashbrowns. But if I want lunch, then I usually go for some type of vegetarian friendly sandwich or a grilled cheese.

In your opinion, what is the best sitcom? (Friends, I’m not biased or anything!)

Seinfeld, of course!
