BLOG AWARDS -- Liebster Award / Cute Blog Award

Hey everyone! Today I have two blog awards that I've never gotten before! How exciting! I'm always so tickled when people give me awards. It's nice to know that people read and like my blog.. and more importantly that they think of me when they're picking blogs worthy of awards. ♥

First up is the LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD. I received this one from Nik over at Confessions of a Make-Up Addict. Her blog is fabulous, and she covers such a wide variety of topics from sales info to DIY tutorials and fashion! I love it!

The rules on this one are super simple:
  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter.
  2. Link back to them.
  3. Post the award on your blog.
  4. Reveal your top 5 picks.
  5. Let them know you picked them!

Next up is the CUTE BLOG AWARD from my bestie Christina over at Red Lip Gloss. I love the look of this one! It's super cute, and owls are kind of my thing. :)

The rules on this one state:
  1. Link back to the person that nominated you.
  2. Answer the award questions.
  3. Tell us something about yourself that you haven't shared on your blog yet.
  4. Award as many blogs as you find worthy.
  5. Let them know you picked them!
1. What is your go-to makeup brand?
Uhhh... this is a tough one! For face, probably Pur Minerals. (I'm a recent devotee.. review coming soon!). For eyes, definitely Wet N Wild and E.L.F. For lips, I'd have to say Tarte.

2. What was your favorite fashion trend of 2011?
I'm going to have to agree with Christina and say maxi dresses. They are amazingly comfortable and stylish. I love how it's a complete outfit! I can't wait to break them out again when we go to Vegas in a couple of weeks! :D

3. What is your favorite dessert?
Longhorn's Chocolate Stampede. It's so delicious and sinfully bad for you. Mmmmm...

4. Favorite Color?
Pink. Duh.

5. What's your middle name?
Like Christina, my middle name is also Marie! We really are long lost twinsies! I love it.

6. What's the last song you listened to?
Glee's version of 'Isn't She Lovely?' ...Hot damn, Artie can sing. :swoons:

7. Cats or Dogs?

SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT ME: My grandparents' high school mascot was an owl, and my college mascot was an owl. So... yea.. owls are kind of my thing. I inherited a little owl statue that my grandma got for her 50 year high school reunion. It sits on our bookshelf and means a lot to me. :)
