Sunshine Blogger Award #7

Hello!! This past weekend, I was so excited for lifewithlilred to be nominated for its seventh Sunshine Blogger Award by my friend, Tiffy, at The Life Of Tiffy. Tiffy runs a wonderful lifestyle blog that covers everything from product reviews and fitness to everything in between. It’s a real treat, so do be sure to check it out and give it some love! Now, on to the rules for this award:

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in the post and link to their blog

  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post
  • Write a new list of 11 questions for your nominees
  • Nominate 11 bloggers for the Sunshine Blogger Award

Q & A:

If you could not blog, what would you do? I guess if I was technologically challenged, I would journal. I kept a journal all throughout high school until the time I was twenty or so. If lifewithlilred didn’t exist, it would be back to the ol’ pen and paper.

Dream holiday destination and why? Paris! Because shopping, finally putting speaking French to good use, and getting lost in the city.

You’re on a desert island. What three things would you have with you? I feel like people normally go with the obvious things like a boat or a cell phone. So, I’m going to go with more minimal and say a lighter to start a fire, a pot to boil water, and a supply of vegetarian friendly food so I don’t have to hurt an animal.

Cats or dogs? Or neither? Dogs! Dogs, dogs, dogs. But, my sister and her boyfriend and my boyfriend both have cats and they’re not the worst thing ever. 😉

Favorite way for you to destress after a long day? Taking a bath with a Lush bath bomb and watching a movie before going to bed early.

Favorite thing to do on a first date? Coffee dates are always good!

The one product I could not live without is… A really good moisturizer. Skin care always comes first for me.

Who is your inspiration in life? Basically everyone who I choose to interact with inspires me in some way shape or form.

You find out your grandmother has a secret fortune, and you inherit a large sum of money. First thing you would do? Find good homes for all of the animals in shelters.

Who would you form a band with? 4 extra members max. Jack White, Marilyn Manson, and Bono.

Favorite Disney film, classic and modern? Beauty & The Beast and then I’m not really sure of the modern ones because I’ve never watched them.

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. Describe a perfect day off from work.
  2. Do you have any traditions that are special to your family?

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?

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!
