Blog on Fire!

*Drum roll*

I just received my first blog award!  I’m getting my acceptance speech together, people!  (In my best Sally Field voice:  “You like me!  You really like me!”)

Big ups to my girl Michelle at Brown Beauty Blog for Skin and Hair Tips for nominating me!  Please go check out her blog, especially if you’re as skin- and hair-conscious as I am.  She shares great information and has a wonderful line of natural skin and hair care products!

The purpose of the award is to nominate other bloggers and to  share information about oneself.  

So, *second drum roll*, here are my 10 blogger friend nominees, and here are seven facts about me (don’t judge me; y’all know I’m crazy!)

Seven facts about me…

  • I am a hardcore introvert, despite appearances to the contrary.
  • I wanted to be a backup singer for Luther Vandross when I was younger. Yup.  One can only dream…
  • I love purple in all its shades.  It calms me, yet it invigorates me.
  • I hate clutter.  Makes me crazy!
  • I clean when I need time to think something through.
  • I read Lipstick Alley from time to time.  Don’t hate!  Those people are hella funny, and they keep it real!
  • I want to go on a cruise again.  I just need to plan it out and put together the right posse to go with me!  Any takers?

    Hey Alison! Congrats and thanks for listing me!! 🙂

  7. Alison, congrats on your award, I love your fresh vibrant blog.

    I too am with the introvert thing, although God keeps pushing forward at unexpected times!

    I love all shades of purple too – it's my very favourite colour. (UK spellings)

    I also hate clutter (I'm a bit of a perfectionist) and start cleaning when I need to think something through!

    I am still waiting to go on my first cruise, when funds allow.

    Have a blessed and worshipful day.

  11. @Carole in the Faith LoungeCarole, thanks, and I hope you had a blessed day too! Loving the British spelling; that's what I grew up on in the Caribbean. Did I tell you that I was born in the UK? We are on the same page in many ways.
