Versatile Blogger Award

I woke up today to a lovely email from Dina at Secretary's Nail Art -  saying she liked my splatter mani and she had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. This is my first award for my little blog and Dina has definitively sent me to cloud 9 with her thoughtfulness and consideration.
Thank you Dina!!

As I understand the rules for the award, I am to thank the person that nominated me, nominated 15 other bloggers that I follow regularly or have just discovered and tell the person that nominates me 7 things about myself.  I follow so many lovely bloggers it's going to be hard to pick only 15 to nominate! Here goes!

1) Colors de Carol -   I've followed her from the beginning, she is the blogger that inspired me to get into nail art and taking up blogging about my nail adventures.
2) Caitlin's Creative Corner -
3) Polished Cousins -
4) Geeky Owl -
5) A Polished Addiction -
6) Nails Adored -
7) Our Painted World -
8) Gnarly Gnails -
9) Canadian Nail Fanatic -
10) Manicurity -
11) A Girl and Her Polish -
12) Polish My Mind -
13) Just Another Polished Addiction -
14) PishPosh and Polished -
15) Dressed Up Digits -

As for 7 things about me:
  • The only thing that rivals my love/borderline obsession for nail art would be cake decorating. I taught the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating for 2 years, and still make cakes for friends/family
  •  I HATE having my feet touched - it's a serious effort for me to have a pedicure, even though I LOVE the results.
  • I enjoy doing research - no matter what it is, if I'm interested in a topic, I research it thoroughly until I can speak intelligently about it.
  • Even though I was born in the U.S., I have Australian citizenship through my mom and still keep contact with my family there
  • I'm a gamer - not super huge, but I love my Xbox 360 - I play The Elder Scrolls, Prince of Persia games, Lego whatever games
  • My favorite color is blue
  • I love psychological thriller movies/tv shows - not gory, but ones that make you sit on the edge of your seat thinking WTH is going to happen next?!? :-)
Well, that's about it! Thanks again Dina for such a lovely surprise today. And Congratulations to the bloggers I've nominated!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!


  1. Hey! Thanks for the award!! I did a post about it on my Facebook page :) My favorite color is blue, too - and how freaking cool you decorate cakes!!

    1. You totally deserved it, I love your blog! :-)
      Blue is a great color - thanks! I love decorating cakes.

  2. Thank you so much! I did a blog post about it! :) Oh and I am totally jealous of the cake decorating! I took an evening class at my local college for cake decorating! :)

    1. You're welcome Kirsten!
      I hope you liked taking the cake decorating class, there soooo much you can do with decorating - there's loads of YouTube videos and tutorials as well that have helped me.

  3. Thanks so much!! Psychological thrillers are one of my favorite kinds of movies also!!! Love trying to figure out who did it and why!

    1. You're welcome! I love your blog!
      So far my fav Psycho thriller is Manhunters that came out about 9 years ago - have you seen it? Oh. My. Goodness it will totally keep you on the edge of your seat.
      If you like TV shows, the best one I've seen so far is The Killing - no joke every episode leaves you thinking and guessing.

  4. Hey there! I just nominated you for this one, too, but since you've already done it, no biggie. Still, if you want to see where I tagged you, it's here.

    Big hugs!

  5. PS--I also just started to play Elder Scrolls!!

    1. Aww thanks so much!!
      Which one are you playing???!?? I'm totally hooked on Skyrim
