Blog Awards!

From the Unknown Beauty Blog!
Recently I received 3 different blog awards! I couldn't believe it! So here are the blog awards and all they entail! :D

The first one I received was from the wonderful Olivia from The Unknown Beauty Blog Check out her great blog here! I adore that most of her photos actually have her covered up. That always makes me laugh as it really is Unknown what Olivia looks like! 

Here's the criteria for the award!

~ Post about the award and copy the rules (there's not many! Yay!)
~ Link to the person who gave you the award!
~ Choose 3-5 blogs you would like to give the award to and link to them as well. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know!
~ Important: This award is for unknown or new blogs only!

Here are the three blogs I'm giving the Bloggy Award to!

1. the black panties! Here! I always feel a little risque going to her blog just because of the name! Her reviews are always great too!

2. Evermore Immortal 18! You can see her here! This girl is so so talented! Her looks are to die for good, so creative and stunning!

3. Miss Diorista! Check her out here! I love how spring-like her blog is and how she includes some of the neatest looking cooking concoctions! Plus she is a doll, so sweet!

Next up is the Stylish Blogger Award! Thanks so much Varnish Vixen for giving me this! I really appreciate it! Varnish Vixen is one of my top favourite nail bloggers, not only is she endlessly friendly and has the neatest quirky steampunk style I adore her photographs and her header is adorable!

Here are the Stylish Rules:
1.  Thank and link the person who gave it to you,
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself
3. Give the award to 15 other bloggers and let them know about it.

Seven Random facts about myself!

1. The reason I got my gerbils (two little boys that are brothers) is because I was lonely at university. Ever since I got them I've snuck them into my residence despite the fact there is a no pets except fish rule. I figure since they live in an aquarium tank and drain their water bottle on a regular basis they can pretend to be fish if anyone asks. :D

2. I'm in science but I hate math and physics. I like the solidarity and confirmation numbers can give you I just can't manage to work them well myself.

3. I honestly believe I was supposed to be born in another era. I love history especially Scottish history and I adore myths and legends from the Britain as well. The fashion the activities such as horse riding, falconry, and embroidery. All of these things draw me so much!

4. I spend most of my time reading. To me it is the ultimate hobby and stress-relief.

5. Walking back to my place at night now is not nearly as intimidating after I had to go to the washroom in the dark in Tanzania. Worry of weirdo people has nothing over the worry of hungry hyenas.

6. I adore Cookie Dough ice cream. I also love Cherry Cheesecake ice cream. Some of the most decadent yummy things ever in creamy cold form. Ice Cream is a gift from the gods.

7. My favourite television show is Bones. I love how intelligent she is and yet completely oblivious to social norms at the same time. Plus the characters just interact so well together!

I've decided to only give the award to four others. Here they are!
~ Gina at Nouveau Cheap (I love all the awesome deals she has with dupes and swatches galore!)
~ Rae at The Notice: A Beauty Blog (She always has the best overview of some Canadian only brands!)
~ Cami at Cami Loves Kiwi Beauty and Dinosaurs (Such great reviews and I love her sense of Humor!)
~ Olivia from The Unknown Beauty Blog (Great Reviews, good swatches and such a wonderful name for the blog!)

There is another award that the lovely Miss Diorista gave me a while ago but I've run out of steam for this post! I'm hoping to get to it soon! Have a great weekend everyone!
