Mystery and Versatile Blogger Awards

Keeping it rolling with the blogger recognition today, I will do sub-box reveal tomorrow but am working diligently to get caught up. I received nominations for the Mystery Blogger Award  and the Versatile Blogger Award from Lily at Covet Luxe who is a kindred spirit with her love of avocado toast 🙂 So thanks to Lily for this opportunity, I appreciate that you read my blog!!



When awards tell you to list the rules, am I the only one thinking, Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club as that you don’t talk about Fight Club. 😀 Just me? OK. This award was created by Okoto Enigmawho claims that this award was on of their greatest creations and I don’t disagree!

  1. 3 Things About MeI have 6 other siblings – yea, cringe.
  2. My favourite book is Gone With The Wind, I know that I have talked about this before and will spare you but if you haven’t read it – you need to.
  3. I have something akin to an eidetic memory, I can memorize text such as books or newspapers or any printed media. It is great for memorizing directions or textbooks or other useless crap but it sucks when I want to go back and read a book that I enjoy as I just end up reciting it to myself. More often than not I just feel like my head is crammed with useless stuff. It isn’t one of those things that I can bust out at a party and recite the dictionary, so lame.

3 Things About Me (1)

  1. Where would you like to travel to someday? Istanbul, the architecture, nature, culture – it just looks magical.
  2. How often do you shave? Every. Single. Day. I have very robust follicles.
  3. Your favorite skin care item? Probably the Mario Badescu Rosewater face spray. So lovely, so affordable.
  4. Why I started my blog? Just for fun, I really don’y have an end game – it is just a fun hobby to keep up and I feel like I am shopping for a purpose if I am picking something up for the blog 😀
  5. Your favourite celebrity? Hrmmmmm…(Sir) Michael Caine.

3 Things About Me (2)

  1. Who is your celebrity skin tone match? I saw this question in my instagram feed and it just intrigued me.
  2. What is your favouite television show?
  3. What is your least favourite job interview question?
  4. Why did you start your blog?
  5. What is your favourite makeup brand?

Seven whole facts about me? I don’t even have seven that come to mind as I am the least interesting person I know 😛

  1. 3 Things About Me (3) I broke my collarbone simulating a WWE move (a choke slam specifically) when I was 7. That marked the end of my wrestling career.
  2. I used to be an avid horseback rider until my horse Indigo passed away a couple of years ago and I just lost interest.
  3. I did not have a license to drive until I was 21 – I still don’t think that I nor half the people on the road should have one.
  4. I still think that 1990 was only 10 years ago when in fact it is 27 years ago 😦
  5. In addition to strawberries, I am allergic to peanuts and shellfish.
  6. I play the violin but my heart is in the bagpipes *le sigh*
  7.  I am a book junkie, I will read anything.
  8. I have 2 tattoos, people assume that I am plastered in them but I’m not.
  9. I have a mole in my right eye that I am supposed to have removed but I haven’t because I am a wimp and don’t want to have my eye cut into.
  10. I collect vintage Pyrex – I should post up my collection, it is pretty bitching.

Thanks again to Lily, if you have not checked out her blog – head on over, she does fashion, food, beauty and everything in between 🙂 If you want to do these tags, please do so and be sure to let me know 🙂

Thanks for stopping by ❤

PS – I am going to start a little shameless self promotion and start linking my Insta’ Fair warning, it isn’t that interesting but I always follow back!! QuiteSimplyStella



  1. I am learning so much about you today!!! I wanted to play violin but my school didn’t offer it, so I played flute. Also sorry to hear about Indigo, I’m sure he was a great horse! And I’m trying to recall if I knew you had tattoos but I can’t haha. What do you have?

    • Haha! Well I am so glad 🙂 I was pretty lucky, my school offered a lot of different art programs. He was, thank you! I have looked at other horses and some day I want another one but he was special. I just have 2 small clusters of stars, but I think the placement of them leads people to believe that I have more. I really just wear long sleeves and skirts so as not to get sun burnt 😀 Thanks for reading!!

    • Thank you 😘 Meh, not the biggest fan of the movie sadly. It is beautifully shot but so much of the drama doesn’t translate. How about you?
