I'm back!

I had a decent, if tiring, trip (except for the part where you come across relatives who say nasty things), and Blogger Schedule has worked!
Meanwhile, I received a lovely "welcome back" blog gift - Elle of SimplyCaramelle has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! I'm so thrilled! Thanks ever so much, Elle. Best of all, she's painstakingly researched the history of the award.
Here are the rules for the award, shamelessly filched from Elle's site:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to their site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
I'll begin with seven facts, because I'm keeping the best (nominees) for last.
1. When I was really small, I walked into a wasps' nest. By the time I recovered, I proceeded to thrust both my hands into a beehive.
2. I've inherited a few skin allergies from my mum.
3. I developed a short temper on purpose when I was around eight years old, because all the girls in my favourite books back then had fiery, short tempers (Anne [of Green Gables], George [of Famous Five], Jo and Margot [of Chalet School] and so on). Blame my mum for giving me the books in the first place.
4. In school, I was the nerdy tomboy kid who spent time on recitation, essay writing, debate and so on, and went home to climb trees.
5. I've got Roger Federer's autograph (directly from him at Wimbledon. Woooohooo).
6. My all-time favourite tennis player will always be Monica Seles. If only....
7. The movie The Omen always scares me.

And... the nominees are:
1. Lexii
2. Meesha Kaw
3. Matilly Rose 
4. Kaytlynz
5. Steph Lau
6. Danielle Hughes
7. Karrie
8. Lucy Fogg
9. Bethanie
10. Sammie
11. Sally
12. Beautyqueen
13. Marufa
14. Hannah
15. Gillian
  1. Thank you :D I love Anne of Green Gables, too! I have a few of the books and the TV series/movies.

  2. Thank you so much for the nomination. Your comment made my day. I am probably going overboard with emotions, but blogging for me is a soothing escape (not in a negative sense) from everything else and it made me feel happy to know that someone out there is listening and can relate to me. Anyways, as you can tell this is my first nomination and I am a total new bee in beauty blogger community, so it'll probably take me some time to find 15 nominees, but this is so exciting. I hope you had an eventful trip. OMG you have been to a Wimbledon tournament! Lucky! I played tennis for a few years and one of my best friends, who was a national champ, defeated a girl who defeated Sania Mirza. There is one fun fact! Anyways, thanks!!!
