Mega Award Catch Up #1 (Sunshine Blogger, Beauty/Makeup Tag, Mystery Blogger)

You know, sometimes I get no nominations for a whole month, and sometimes I get a whole bunch. This month, I got quite a few, so I’m breaking it into two posts as having them all in one post made this post veeeery long!

The Sunshine Blogger Award


The majestic Anni from Glücksgeist nominated me for the sunshine blogger award. She blogs about baking, Youtube, DIY, and honestly she’s a ball of sunshine herself.

Thinking about the fact that we’ll be off to Japan in a month!!

Constantly. If I’m at work, I check it every break. If I’m not at work, then whenever I check my phone, which is often.

  • When was the last time you laughed out loud?

At work. I love hanging out with my co-workers, as well as the little babies. We have a wee little boy at the moment (almost 4 months), and when you make eye contact with him, he just babbles and laughs for days. Which in turn makes me laugh. It’s like having a conversation, except I have no idea what he’s on about.

  • What’s your favourite song at the moment?

Meant to Be. We sing it all the time.

I caved and bought some more Tarte products when they announced a sale. They’re all lip products and I’m pretty excited for them to arrive!
