Liebster Award

I am very happy to say that I was nominated for The Liebster Award by glitzyspritzer, and this is what she said about me:

“If you’re looking for ways to enhance your natural beauty inside and out this girl has got it down to a tee.” -glitzyspritzer (about Being Pretty)

Thank you so much glitzyspritzer for the encouraging words! Check out her cute blog at: http://middayspritzer.com/

Now I am to pass on this Award!

Rules:
1) Thank & Link- Thank the person who nominated you! Link their blog to your post
2) Copy & Paste Award- Copy and Paste the Leibster Award in your post
3) Nominate- Nominate 10 other bloggers with 200 or less followers
4) Q&A- Answer the questions given to you (at the bottom of my post) Create a new set of questions for those you nominate.
5) Notify- Notify your nominee’s via comment

My questions to answer were:

1) Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog because I wanted to share my talents and ideas with other women. I wanted to inspire others.

2) Did you tell your friends and family about it? Why/Why not?

Yes I did. I asked my parents and siblings what they thought. I wanted to know if it was a good idea!

3) A secret that you would tell your blog friends but not your real friends… untill now.

I’m sorry to say, (or perhaps glad to say), that I can’t think of one! There is nothing I would tell strangers that my close friends wouldn’t know!

4) What makes you literally LOL (laugh out loud).

The first “Rush Hour” movie. I laugh EVERY time. Clumsy mistakes by myself or others usually provides a good laugh as well.

5) Share a fun fact.

If you stretch your arms out from side to side (horizontally), the measurement from finger to finger is equal to your height from head to toe! It;s true! (For the average person anyway.)

6) What or who drives you?

The knowledge that God is in control, loves me, and knows what’s best for me even in my seemingly worst moments.  Also knowing that I have friends and family who love and care for me.

7) What is your favourite quote?

Among many: “Shoot for the moon, and if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” -Les Brown. Also I love “I believe  in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick.  I believe in pink. I believe the happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.”  -Audrey Hepburn

8) Thanksgiving or Christmas?

I love both, but I must say Christmas is my favourite. If you think about it, Thanksgiving should be everyday! Christmas is special however, because it can only be celebrated at a certain time of year. It’s so pretty and joyful!

9) One thing that you hope never changes.

My love for my close friends and family.

10) If you could speak another language fluently what would it be?

SPANISH! I loooove Spanish!

“One friend in a lifetime is much; two are many; three are hardly possible.”

-Henry Adams

Sometimes we feel lonely. Sometimes we feel that we don’t have enough friends.

But you know what?

You may only have one best friend. That one friend is all you need sometimes. Someone to share with, someone to talk to, someone to listen to, someone to have fun times and hard times with. Treasure every friendship….even if it’s only one.

-Lea C:

“One friend in …

Keep Love In Your Heart…

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.”

-Oscar Wilde

Take time to look around you. There is beauty everywhere you turn. There are also people everywhere turn.

Perhaps some of those people are hurting. Some sad, some lonely, some deeply depressed. A simple kind word, act, or even a smile can heal a soul.

Let them know that there is love in the world. That they are loved.

“…You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”

-Mark 12:31b NKJV
