Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great and restful weekend 🙂 Did you do anything fun?

I did a lot of shopping at the VS Semi-Annual Sale (beauty products now 75% off!), finally saw “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, and watched the Warriors games on TV. I also started playing with all of my Skinfood x Snoopy items, watched the Golden Globes, and was–to my surprise–nominated for another Beauty Blogger Award.

THANKS

First of all, thank you so much to Diana (CheonsaDiana’s Reviews) and Yoo Ri (With Yoo Ri) for nominating me for this award.

One Lovely Blog Award - Facts

  1. I am a night owl, but I wish I was a morning person. I would love to be able to wake up early in the morning and go for a run; however, I rarely ever sleep before 1 am. It’s a very bad habit that I just can’t break.
  2. My current favorite mobile games are Alphabear, Triple Town, and Tsum Tsum.
  3. I refuse to get into my bed with dirty feet. Even if it’s way too late at night or I’m too tired to shower, I have to wash my feet before I go to bed.
  4. I was obsessed with Andy Roddick back in middle school and high school. He is still one of my favorite people ever, and so is Brooklyn Decker. They are perfect.
  5. I am writing this post at a Toyota dealership as I wait for my oil to get changed.
  6. My favorite member of One Direction is Liam.
  7. I am really good at making budgets, but I never stick to my beauty one. Sephora ruins it every month.
