sugary sweet

The beautiful, intelligent and stylish Dimi of Little Witches/Tiny Wizards awarded me with the Irresistibly Sweet blog award, which is appropriate because I have a huge sweet tooth (plus I like to think I'm a sweet person too!)  So without further adieu, here are 7 facts you didn't even know you wanted to know about me! :)

1.  I find it very difficult to wake up during the week so I set my alarm early so I can snooze a good 4-5 times before waking up (which probably is more disruptful to my sleep but that's how I roll!)
 2.  I love buying gifts for other people and put effort and consideration into what they like.  I particularly love buying "just because gifts" for the boy and my close friends. This Christmas I'm thinking homemade gifts for everyone (so I hope you like soap, frames and chocolate!)

3.  I am not one of those girls who wakes up with perfect hair and a perky smile.  I am grumpy, with bed head, dark circles under my eyes and drool on my pillow.  I would love to meet someone who wakes up looking like the girls in movies after a sexy sleepover cuz it sure ain't me!
 4.  I do not know how to apply makeup so the most you'll see me wearing is a dap of mascara, and some coloured lip gloss (and maybe a bit of eye liner on a good day!)

5.  Even though I have a Blackberry, I refuse to have my e-mails forwarded to it.  I  don't like the idea of being that accessible, because I know that if I receive a work e-mail after my 8-4 shift I would probably answer it and I need some professional boundaries!
 6.  That being said, I am OCD about checking my e-mails (on my computer and during work hours that is!) My perfect day at work would be receiving oodles of e-mails and spending the day responding to them.  At the end of each day I actually count how many e-mails I sent to measure my productivity (I told you I was a bit OCD!)
7.  I usually pick out my outfit the night before because on the days when I don't (after having snoozed for a good 40-50 minutes), I look like a hot mess and I always have a better day when I like what I'm wearing!
Floral Dress- Thrifted; Black Dress (worn underneath)- Smart Set; Black Vest- Suzy Shier; Heels- Walmart; Ring- H&M; Nail Polish- Lightning by L.A. Colours

Have a great weekend everyone and stay sweet!


  1. congrats on your sweetie award. you are the sweetest!

    OCD! Welcome to my world. I check my email and twitter and facebook constantly from my iphone. Perhaps I shouldn't but what doesn't really matter.I'm crae-crae.

    I bet you look amazing in the mornings. I can't imagine you looking anything but amazing.


  2. You're adorable and so is this post. I laughed out loud at #6, sounds like something I'd do. Congratulations on the award!!! I'm loving your vast shoe collection. My only bit of unsolicited advice is that a close-up of that ring would have been great! - Kat

  3. Oh thank you dear!!! You're the sweetest and totally deserve it! I love your facts and truth is I'm a bit OCD (but I have my days!)! Don't panic - nobody wakes up and looks perfect! Many kisses! (and lovely outfit btw!)

  4. I so snooze 5-7 times every morning; I only get up an hour after the first alarm - I just can't do it any other way!
