Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award Guidelines
When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.  Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then. 
*Beautifully worded by Suzanne so I am reusing this section. :)

I was nominated by the awesome Suzanne of Laughing Scholar for this award. We both started blogging around the same time and we have been supporting each other in the growth of our blogs. She is very funny, witty, and bubbly. She also has her own youtube channel for unboxings of subscription boxes! I will have to see when I will go down that road as well. Definitely check her out!

In accepting this award, the nominated blogger has to write 7 facts about themselves as well as nominate 15 other bloggers who are most deserving. :)

Here are my 7 Facts

1. My favorite kind of chocolate is dark chocolate.

2. I have a huge love for animals but my least favorite are monkeys.

3. My favorite food is Italian. I love just about every sauce + cheese combination with pasta and it actually keeps you full for a long time.

4. I have a pet duck and 2 conures.

5. It's a huge headache to shop for shoes for me (size 4.5 or 5) because I can never find one that fits 99% of the time. And the ones that do fit are most likely available at Nordstroms and very pricey.

6. My favorite eyeshadow colors are browns, golds, plums, and greys.

7. I can't get enough of bubble milk tea (also called boba milk tea). Yes, they can be fattening if you drink it everyday but once in a while is okay! My favorite flavors are Oolong Milk Tea and Taro Milk Tea.
