Huge hugs from me to you all!!!
I wanted to post so many other ones I have lined up but I want to end this week with this awesome award that Ashely from CiaoBella & Erica of Diary of a Trendaholic has tagged me. If you guys have not checked out their blogs, click over here:

So these awesome ladies have awarded me the. . .

Sunshine Award
is an award given to those who inspire us and bring sunshine into our lives. 
 I am just really touched with this award. When I started this blog I did not think I would be giving more than my opinion, and to know that I have inspired and be their sunshine just makes me teary! 
Happy tears!

Few simple rules on this award:
  • *Include the award logo in your blog post
  • *Link to the person who nominated you
  • *Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • *Nominate other bloggers

Now to answer Ashley's Questions:

1. What made you start blogging and why?

  • At first it was a way for me to keep notes on all the beauty products I use; I used it as my virtual diary, then eventually it grew to this awesome community which is great! I became more and more active as well when I started subscribing to the monthly beauty subscriptions. Blogging was one way for me to keep up with what I think of them, and didn't really expect a lot of other girls out there are interested to read what I have to write!

2. When did you first wear makeup?

  • When I started working Front Desk (years ago!), I needed to look more put together and older. People always think I am 16, which is a compliment I know but I was getting treated like a kid and they think I do not know what I am doing. So I started wearing drugstore tinted moisturizer and tinted lip balm. I still really don't know what I was doing but I did not have time for all that since I was going to school part-time then too.

3. What are your Fall go-to makeup colors?

  • This year I'd like to do golds and purples on the eyes and if I wear a neutral eye look - I'd go bold with my lip colors which is usually berry colors: dark reds with purple undertones.

4. Where is your favorite place to relax?

  • On our big couch since my dog cuddles with me.

5. Who's your favorite beauty guru?

  • YouTube Beauty Guru, Jaclyn Hill. I have only subscribed to her recently and she already has taught me how to contour, wear red lips, do a smokey eye and a cat eye! And oh yeah she's the one who made me buy my Holy Grail foundation brush, Sigma F80! 

6. Where is your dream vacation?

  • Eurotrip to Paris, Italy and Greece.

7. If you were on a deserted island, what beauty items would you have?

  • sunscreen and a lip balm, and hopefully the island has some aloe vera =)

8. What is the one thing you like about blogging the most?

  • I get to write what I want, the way I want it. No editors to tell me what not to write or how to write it. And I also feel like I am hanging out with other beautyholics like moi;  other bloggers who understand me and vice versa! It makes me feel I am not alone in this beauty journey I am going through!

9. Favorite Fall treat?

  • Fresh Pumpkin Pie from the orchard!

10. What is your dream job? Why?

  • It changes everyday! Years ago, I wanted to be a doctor. Two years ago I was an aspiring author. A few months ago, I was dreaming to be a Beauty Guru like the ones on YouTube. Right now my dream job is to be a guest blog writer for InStyle or Glamour or any fashion mags. Ask me next month, it might be different again.
