Blog Your Heart Out Award

Hey everybody!  I have been nominated for another award from a lovely and gracious co-blogger, Francesca at The Beauty Case.  She nominated me, and I quote, "because she's fancy!"  I LOL'd for at least 10 minutes when I read that.  Finally, all this effort is paying off! :P  I should say that Francesca's blog is written in Italian, and my English translation was "fancy."  But she could have really been saying "freaky" and I was none the wiser. :D  Heh heh...oh well, I'm gonna believe the actual intended word WAS, in fact, "fancy" and say a big thank you to Francesca! :)

The rules are as follows:  Answer 5 questions and nominate 5 other bloggers with fewer than 100 followers.  I keep plugging away with the hopes that one day I'll have 100, but this award is designed to help bring attention to worthy bloggers. :)  Here are the questions:

1.  What or who encouraged you to start blogging?  

My dog passed away and I wanted something to keep my mind off losing him...then my dear friend Essie Rae of IHeartPrettyPolish nudged me into the blogging world. :)

2.  How do you choose what topics to blog about?

It just sort of hits me?  :D

3.  What is something that most people don't know about you?

You all are probably tired of hearing things about me.  I'll divulge all my secrets and the mystery will be shot. :D  Oh, okay...I can't eat beef.  It makes me sick every time I eat it.

4.  What three words describe your style?

Classy, tasteful, and FANCY!

5.  What do you like to do when you're not blogging?

Spend time with my family and my dogs.

Here are my nominees for the award:

Polished Marvels (Switzerland) - Christine is a sweetheart with excellent taste :)

Perfectly Painted (USA) -  Clare is wonderfully supportive and takes great photos of her immaculate nails.

London Varnish (England) - Jemma is a very positive and talented girl.

Colors Frenzy (Canada) - Novi will be a nail superstar. You can take that to the bank. ;)

Polished Prescription (USA) - Kelsey is super talented and always shows great polishes.

Thanks again to Francesca for nominating me! :)  Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely evening!

  5. Hi, Melissa!
    Yes, the right word I wrote in my post was "fancy". Your line is written in english, 'cause I do not want make some funny mistake. You write:"People refer to me as "fancy." ", in your presentation, and I think, "yes, it's true, her' nails are always pretty cool!". Isn't fancy this? ;)

    1. I was laughing in a good way! :) And I think you're awesome!! :)
