I’ve been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by the lovely Felicia from Beginner Beaute. Thanks so much, Felicia, and if you haven’t checked out her blog you really should.
For this award, here’s what you need to do:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
- Put the award logo on your blog.
- Answer the ten questions they have sent you.
- Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
- Nominate ten people
Here are the questions I had to answer:
What would be your dream job?
I know this sounds super corny, but I feel like I have my dream job. I love being a Librarian and working in a university library. First of all, I get paid to buy books, how fun is that? I find it really rewarding to help students and feel like I played a part in helping them get their education, and to help faculty members doing research on all kinds of interesting topics. If I couldn’t be a Librarian, I think I’d like to work in advertising (probably because I’m obsessed with Mad Men), or work with a charity doing fundraising, or maybe party planning.
If you can live anywhere in the world, where would you want to live?
After 10 years away, I choose to move back to the place I am originally from and its the best place in the world to live IMO. I love traveling, but I’m living where I want to live. I’m happy where I am.
If you can only use one brand of product all the time what would it be?
I was thinking of this the other day actually! It would be MAC, except that I haven’t been able to find a MAC foundation that works for me. I love the MUFE HD Invisible Cover Foundation which is light enough for my pale skin. I really like the MUFE eye shadows too, so if I had to pick just one brand, I might have to go with Make Up For Ever.
What is your favorite perfume?
Issey Miyake. I don’t change up my fragrance. Its the only thing I wear.
What do you plan on doing this summer?
Working at a university, people sometimes assume I have the summers “off”, but although I have some downtime, I use it to work on other areas of my career. I go to conferences (I’ve already been to two), I’m working on publishing a couple of papers, and presenting a national webinar with a colleague.
That all sounds super boring, right??? lol. I’m also refocusing on my health and fitness this summer. I got a personal trainer and I’m trying to eat cleaner and be more active. You can read more about some of my efforts like my Fitbit review, my 10-day detox, and check out my “Fitness Friday” posts.
What has gotten you into blogging?
I really just wanted to share my interest in makeup, accessories, skincare, and all things girly. Its often difficult to find people in “real life” who are quite as obsessed. I loved reading other beauty blogs and watching YouTube beauty gurus but often had a hard time finding information about products for very fair skin and for sensitive skin, and where to find products available in Canada. I started my blog for people looking for this information too, and also to connect with other people around the world who share similar interests.
Where do you currently live?
Newfoundland, Canada. It’s a large island with a small population and is the furthest east you can go in North America (we even have our own time zone and are half an hour ahead of the rest of the continent). I like to joke that I’m clinging to the side of a rock sticking out into the middle of the frigid north Atlantic.
Does any of your family/friends know you blog?
Not really. I have mentioned it to my fiance and a few very close friends, but haven’t disclosed the name of the blog and as far as I know, none of them have seen it. Mainly because I don’t think the content would be all that interesting to them, but also because I guess part of me is a little self-conscious about it.
What is your favorite song right now?
Oh dear, I am the worst person for keeping up with popular music. I have Sirius satellite radio in my car and basically listen to the On Broadway channel non-stop (all songs from Broadway musicals). I don’t have ANY music on my phone. I prefer to listen to eAudio books. I’m a huge nerd 🙂
What is your favorite car/dream car?
I’m not really a car person. I didn’t own a car until I was 30 because I preferred to bike everywhere. When I moved back to Newfoundland, the winters are too crazy and long for that. I appreciate having a vehicle I can drive places, but I don’t really care what kind of car it is. I picked my current car because it was affordable and got good gas mileage to minimize my carbon footprint. Remember that part about being a huge nerd?
Hope you found that at least a little interesting! 🙂
Here are my 10 questions that the folks I’m tagging have to answer (I decided on summer-themed questions, seemed appropriate):
