Mystery Blogger Award #6

Standard
Mystery Blogger Award #6

Hi everyone and happy Hump Day! Lifewithlilred’s sixth Mystery Blogger Award is compliments of my friend, Veena, over at Venting Thoughts. Veena’s page covers many different topics from fashion and beauty to lifestyle and personal thoughts, so you are sure to find something just for you on her page. Please be sure to take a look! Now, let’s get to the rules:

The Rules:

  • Feature the award logo/image on your post.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  • Tell the readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link, as well.
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Nominate 10-20 bloggers and notify them by commenting on their blog.
  • Ask the nominees 5 questions of your choice with one weird/funny question.
  • Share and link to your best post(s).

Fun Facts:

  1. I am really interested in buying a wig because I have a difficult time growing my long-short hair out. It would be nice to have the option for long hair, because I know that it’s not going to grow well naturally. Believe me, I’ve tried!
  2. I have always loved to write and have tons of filled up journals in my closet from when I was in high school.
  3. I’m seeing Marilyn Manson in concert on Friday and I’m so freaking hyped!!

Q & A:

What was that one thing that inspired you to start your blog? Enough people told me to! And I thought that it would be nice to have a unique creative outlet.

What is your favorite fast food place and what do you like the most about it? TACO BELL. I am a dedicated vegetarian and the fact that you can get beans instead of meat on the food there literally opens up the entire menu to me – which never happens at fast food places. It’s amazing to be able to get whatever I want, instead of having to settle for French fries because it’s legit all I can get at other restaurants.

Any life hack that you would like to give other bloggers? Lol, not really. In case all of you haven’t noticed by now, I just make things up as I go along!

Do you prefer book or movies? And which is your favorite? Books! I have many favorites but for the sake of time, I’ll list three: The Little Prince, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time, and Gentlemen & Players.

Now for the fun part. If you were to be the president of your country for a day, what would you do? Because I don’t care to share my political views on here, I’m going to say that I would find a home for every person or animal that needs one.

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. What is something (Other than blogging!) that you’re good at?
  2. What is your spirit animal?
  3. Who is your celebrity crush?
  4. Favorite ice cream flavor?
  5. Would you rather chew five pieces of gum that was stuck under a desk or get locked in a portapotty for two hours?

My Best Post:

I don’t have one, I like them all!

Thank you so much again to Veena for nominating lifewithlilred for its sixth Mystery Blogger Award! How would you answer some of the questions that Veena asked her nominees? How about some of my questions for mine? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Liebster Award #9

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!! Today is an exciting day because lifewithlilred just got nominated for its ninth Liebster Award. I want to thank my kind nominator, Karissa from Karissa Jacksn so much for thinking of lifewithlilred while creating your post! Karissa is absolutely darling and I know that you’ll enjoy her page so do check it out and give it some love! Now, let’s get to the rules:

The Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions given by the blogger.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  • Ask 11 new questions for them to answer.

Q & A:

Where is your favorite hangout spot? I love going to the Cashmere Cricket with my friends. It’s my favorite bar and it has the most amazing martinis!

What reminds you most of your childhood? Uhhh, I don’t know, I never really thought about it.

What is your favorite candy? Anything sour! I love Sour Patch Kids, Warheads, Sour Skittles, and Shockers.

Texting or calling? Why? It really depends. If I’m trying to have an in depth conversation or make plans with someone, then definitely calling. But if it’s just a “whatever” chit chat, then texting it is!

What is your favorite drink? I like water and coffee. My favorite pop is Diet Coke. My favorite alcoholic drink is moscato and the Strawberry Lemon Drop Martinis from the Cashmere Cricket.

If you could live on a different planet, would you do it? Why? Why not?! If it were an actual civilization and not some barren wasteland, then sure!

Are you now, or were you ever afraid to go to the dentist? Yes! I always have been. I hate going to the dentist and the eye doctor because anything to do with teeth or eyes makes me really squeamish. This all stems from my love of horror movies because so many flicks have painful scenes that have to do with teeth or eyes and that just really gets to me. Freaking YUCK.

Do you have any celebrity crushes? Do I ever! Jack White, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, just to name a few!

Did you decorate your living space? Do you like it? No I didn’t because I’m still at home. But I don’t hate it or anything – it’s home!

City or Suburb? Why? Mmmm…suburb. Cities would just be too much for me and the constant noise and hustle and bustle would be so anxiety provoking, in my opinion.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to your younger self? Not to get so worked up about what other people think.

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. What is your favorite social media platform?
  2. What is your favorite holiday to celebrate?
  3. How do you treat yourself when you need a pick me up?
  4. Do you prefer hot or cold weather?

Sunshine Blogger Award #4

Sunshine Blogger Award #4

Hi everyone and happy Sunday! I am so thrilled that lifewithlilred has been nominated for its fourth Sunshine Blogger Award by my friend, Sarah, at Vintage Tea Rose. Not only does Sarah have the best name on the planet but she also runs a fabulous blog, which all of you should check out ASAP! Now, let’s get on to the rules for this award:

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who has nominated you for this award.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs and write 11 new questions for them.
  • List the rules and display the logo of the sunshine blog award in your post.

Q & A:

Do you remember any of your dreams? Can you describe one? I have the absolute craziest dreams. You know how people dream about their teeth falling out? Ever since I started getting my talon nails three years ago, I have a reoccurring dream where I’m digging through dirt with my bare hands and my nails are breaking off in the process. Whenever I wake up, I’m so thankful to see that my claws are all still there!

Do you have any family tradition that you want to carry on? Uhh…None that I can think of haha my family doesn’t really have any special traditions. Then again, we usually all get margarita drunk during one of our birthdays. Yeah, I’ll carry out that tradition, for sure!

Who do you laugh the hardest with and why? My mom!! Omg, I always laugh when I’m with her because we both find the same silly things hysterical so once one of us starts laughing it’s totally contagious! For example, a judge on one of our favorite TV shows laughed really funnily and we re-winded the show so many times to hear it again and we were just crying with laughter! Like I said, it’s silly stuff that we think is funny while other people are like “what is wrong with them?”.

What has been the best piece of advice you have received? “Haters gonna hate”, which was on a wrist band that my best friend gave me for like my fifteenth birthday.

Would you rather never read another book or never watch another film/TV show? I love to read, so I would be okay without TV or movies, I suppose.

You’ve been arrested! What have you most likely done? Ooooh, let’s see…If I ever got arrested, it would probably be for a mishap while I’m really wine drunk, lol AYYYY.

Do you have a personal motto that you live by? What is it? Meh, not really.

Do you have a favorite post that you’ve written? Link to it. Meh, again, not really.

What is one of your pet peeves? When people ask me how I do anything with my talon nails! It’s so freaking annoying. -_-

Name one song that you never get tired of hearing. “Beautiful Day” by U2.

What’s something that your brain tries to make you do but you have to will yourself not to do it? Blow my bank account in one huge shopping spree!! Believe me, I think about it on the daily. It’s my cross to bear, I suppose. 😉

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. What is your favorite candy or sweet treat?
  2. What is a staple piece in your wardrobe?
  3. What is your least favorite color?
  4. Texting or phone calls?
  5. Favorite way to spend a day off?
  6. What was your favorite childhood toy?
  7. What are some of your favorite things about yourself?
  8. Do you have a favorite hobby other than blogging?
  9. If you were a boy do you know what your name would have been?
  10. What is your favorite name for a boy? For a girl?
  11. What is something that you are afraid of?

Thank you so much again to the sweet Sarah of Vintage Tea Rose for lifewithlilred’s fourth Sunshine Blogger Award! How would you answer some of Sarah’s questions for her nominees? How about some of the questions that I asked mine? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

I am so appreciative to my friend, Rachael, at A Little Moore for thinking of little old me while completing her award post. Please be sure to check out her page and give it some love!

What is your favorite movie and why? Oh wow…Uh, I guess I’m going to say Pan’s Labyrinth because it’s visually stunning and I love the story. To me, that movie is perfect. But, believe me, I could name like ten more favorites if given the opportunity.

What is your favorite song at the moment? I don’t have one. I have a lot of favorite songs so these questions are actually really difficult for me to answer because I kind of can’t!
