Sugary Sweet Blog Award

I promise to do a recap from the weekend, but first I wanted to pass along this tag! Last week I received the Sugar Doll award from two very 'sweet' ladies, Margen at Simply*Southern and Christy at Twenty-five before Twenty-five! Thank you ladies so much for the love!

The rules are to post ten things about yourself and then pass the award to ten blogs. Simple enough, right?


1. I think one-piece swimsuits are extremely classy. Even the two-piece acting as a one piece- love! There's something a little bit mysterious about a one-piece, if you ask me.

2. While we're on the topic of swimwear, I love to have a matching cover-up for my suits. Yea, so what, it's the fashion slave that I am. Click here for my favorite swimwear brand.

3. I love to eat peanut butter and jelly right out of the jar. Spoonful of PB, spoonful of J, deliciousness! Oh, and grape jelly is my favorite.

4. Sometimes I still sleep under a 'Three Little Pigs' blanket that my grandma made for me when I was little.

5. I have a scar above my top lip from an accident I had when I was four. Running, coffee table, ouch.

6. My morning routine now that I'm on break? Wake up, fix cereal, watch the Today Show, watch the fourth hour of the Today Show, watch The View. Just in case you were wondering.

7. I will forever be on the search for the perfect red nail polish. Yes, Cajun Shrimp is my favorite shade ever, but it's not quite red.

8. My favorite magazine is ELLE. I know some of you out there are die-hard Cosmo fans or Vogue lovers, but I will take ELLE any day!

9. I had braces in 7th grade. For eight-teen months, actually.

10. While I had those braces, I shared my first kiss with an eighth grader who had braces as well. Come on, that's kinda cute, right?


Now, I'm passing this along to these ten ladies that I just think are absolute sweeties!

Your fun facts were great! I am looking into your fav swim-wear now because I think a matching cover-up is totally fun!

Claire Kiefer said...

You look adorable in that picture. I checked out your link to swimsuits, and I LOVE this one but it's pricey!

I'm with you on the search for the perfect red nail polish. Right now I'm loving OPI's Big Apple Red.

Congrats on the award! I loved your fun facts- that pb+j picture got me all excited to go the the USA to get some grape jelly. They don't sell any here, unfortunately! My favorite red shades (I love red!) are both by OPI and they're Big Apple Red and A Oui Bit of Red. I'm wearing the second one now!

Congrats on the award!! I agree in re: to the one-piece swimsuit. You look fab in your beach pic, also!

Once I found my perfect nail polish, I knew I was set! Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI. No other will ever hold my heart! And I have a scar on my eye from when I was around 4 too. Brick porch. OMGOSH! And my magazine of choice is actually Real Simple ;) but I love me some Vanity Fair..over Vogue! Thanks for the award! You ARE too sweet and it's always wonderful to know my fellow bloggers a little better! xo

Thanks for the tag Julie!

As for nail polish, have you tried Essie's "Who's She Red"? I'm usually a pink and coral girl, but I love this shade so much! And Essie formula is so nice too!

Katie S said...

Mama Pea said...

YAY! Thank you! And red nail polish is my favorite. Some other commenters already mentioned 2 good ones: Essie Who's She Red and Opi Big Apple Red. Another good one: Essie Jelly Apple. And Revlon Red is good, too.

Julie, I hope you have had a wonderful holiday weekend!
I love your wrap, you look beautiful!
Your little kiss story is so adorable, love it!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Very cute! I love that you sleep under a special blanket and it IS too cute that you your first kiss as you both were adorned with braces! Adorable! I love PBJ from the jars too but I always eat too much that way and get sick... I agree about the one-piece (tho I still love my 2-pieces) and your cover-up is adorable!
