Who me??? I won??? Really???

That's right...I've won a blog award courtesy of Shana Janelle. First, I'd like to thank God...if it weren't for him I wouldn't be doing this! Folks always start their acceptance speeches that way so why not me too lol. I was so surprised that she thought enough of my blog to give me this honor. I am so very appreciative! Thanks Shana!

Here's what you're supposed to do:
1. Link back to the person who passed you the award-GOT IT!
2. Share 7 random things about yourself - See Below...
3. Award 10 blogs - Congrats to my winners!
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it - I sure will!

My 7 random facts...
1. I love sushi! (but only the cooked stuff lol)
2. I've always wished I could draw...like an artist.
3. My very first job was working at Merry Go Round in Landover Mall - am I telling my age DMVers? Lol
4. When I was young I used to model and dance...from 2 years old until I was a freshman in HS...I miss those days.
5. I'm addicted to some of the lesser known gurus on YouTube.
6. I've been trying some new foods lately and they're not half bad. (Afghan, Indian, even vegetarian...no tofu though, I don't personally like it)
7. I always chicken out when I go to get my hair cut. Go in with an idea in mind then end up just trimming the ends. I'll be bold enough one day lol

So...my "Awesome Blog Award" winners are...drum roll please....
(These are in no particular order)

Cogratulations to all of my winners!!!  Now all of you go out and do the same.

Just go away!!! LOL

So my homegirl and go to MUA Shana Janelle is doing a 30 day challenge on YouTube (click here for Shana's video) and posted a very interesting video yesterday talking about beauty trends that you wish would go away.  So I thought I'd blog about what she had to say.  This crackle polish fad…UGH!  Everybody and their grandma, momma, sister, and little cousin have gone mad with this phase.  I thought it was different and kinda cool when I first heard about it.  But now…not so much.  I think that maybe on one nail as a design type thing is cool…but every nail and all these colors just drives me insane! Lol  She also mentioned buying every new product that comes out.  I can’t comment much on this because…well, I’m cheap and I don’t want to spend too much money on anything lol.  But I understand what she means because I see the gurus on YouTube and as soon as some new line or collection comes out everybody is purchasing the whole line/collection and doing a review on it.  I can’t…..lol  The last thing that stuck out in my mind is the thought that every part of your face has to be done when you wear make up out.  I personally don’t think you have to have on shadow and bronzer and blush and contour and bright lips and filled in brows etc…etc…especially for everyday make up.  I’m very simple (unless I’m feeling like wearing something bright) with my everyday make up.  A nice smokey or neutral eye with some eyeliner and mascara and lip gloss does me just fine.  I feel like sometimes folks do too much with their make up when going to work or a night out.  But that’s just me…my personal opinion…the way I feel…but I digress…  Basically, I whole heartedly agree with what my girl had to say.  Give me some feedback…how do you feel about these topics?  And what are some trends (make up, fashion, or anything in general) that you wish would go away???
