Very Inspiring Blogger award & This or That Tag

Hi everyone!  So in the past two months I have received TWO nominations for the Very inspiring blogger award, AND have been tagged to do the This or That Tag.  Very, very exciting!  I am so thankful to the lovely bloggers who have nominated me for the very inspiring blogger award; Laura and Marina.  Be sure to check out their blogs by clicking on their names!  Also, a big thank you to Mckenzie who tagged me in the This or That Tag, check out her blog also by clicking on her name!  Keep reading to see me complete both sets of questions, and find out who I tag and nominate! Also, look for a VERY EXCITING announcement at the end of this post!

Very Inspiring Blogger Award 

For this award I have to list seven random facts about myself, so here it goes! 

1) I have been living completely gluten and wheat free since I was eight years old because of massive stomach issues.  It was annoying at first, but now I enjoy coming up with new gluten and wheat free recipes, such as gluten free pasta dishes and crazy desserts!  If you're interested see my recipe for Gluten Free Dairy Free French Toast Cupcakes.

2) If I could live in any other time period besides this one, it would be hands down the 1920s.  I just love all the glamorous dresses, beautiful makeup, and the "Flapper" look.  Also, Coco Channel was just starting in the 20s and she is one of my greatest idols for her work in the fashion design industry. 

3) Another one of my idols is Nikki Phillippi, she is a beauty guru on youtube, I love her style, her bubbly personality, her weird but hilarious humor, and her determination in following her heart.  If you don't know who she is you should definitely check out her channel: Nikkiphillippi 

4) I have only been wearing a full face of makeup for about a year now, prior to that I was only wearing concealer and mascara.  I still have a lot to learn about makeup but I am enjoying it every step of the way!

5) Summer is my absolute favorite season!  I love really hot days at the beach laying in the sand.  Another thing that I love about the summer is the fashion, summer style is my favorite. Oh, and I can't forget my birthday, which is in July!

6)  Shopping is literally my FAVORITE activity.  I spend 12 hours at a time at my local mall buying and window shopping, its an obsession! I just get so excited when I get something new, I get really, really crazy!  I just did a haul from one of my latest shopping trips and it was gigantic! If you want to see it, the blogpost is titled: Spring Break Haul & Giveaway.

7) I love to play tennis, I have been playing since I was around four with my dad and started lessons when I was 12.  Also, this year, which was my Freshman year in High school I played for the school's team as JV First Doubles.  I'm really excited to start tennis back up in the fall again next year!
