Barry M, butterLONDON and Models Own rank highly for me.

And number three is: The Versatile Blogger award which comes to me from http://chromacraze.blogspot.com/
You're supposed to:
1.) List seven things about yourself
2.) Pass to 15 bloggers
There was a survey attatched to the blog I got this award from and instead of listing 7 things about myself, I'm going to go ahead and do the survey. I think over the past month or so with all the new groups I've joined pretty much all the good facts about me have already been used anyway!
Blush or Bronzer ? Blush at all times of year but summer. Then a light bronzer.
Lip Gloss or Lipstick ? Both. But usually gloss. I'm kind of a lip gloss addict!
Eyeliner or Mascara ? Both. I like to do the winged 60's eye.
Foundation or Concealer ? Neither. I ususally just wear a tinted moisturizer.
Neutral or Colored Eyeshadow ? Anything. I love eyeshadow. Most often I wear a minimal amount in a nuetral color though.
Pressed or Loose Eyeshadow ? Loose at home, pressed on the go.
Brushes or Sponges ? Brushes.
Long or Short ? In between. I like them on the short side since I do a lot of typing.
Natural or acrylic? My natural nails are nice and strong so I've never had need for acrylics.
bright or dark? Anything!
flower or no flower? Depends on my mood.
perfume or body splash? Ooo I'm obsessed with perfume. My signature scent is Stella McCartney but I love all different kinds.
lotion or body butter? I hardly use either (I know, bad me.) but probably lotion.
body wash or soap? I like bars.
Jeans or Sweat Pants ? I don't think I've ever worn sweat pants in my entire life. I have two pair of skinny jeans but I mostly wear dresses and skirts.
Long Sleeve or short? It depends on the weather.
Dresses or Skirts ? Both. Probably dresses more than skirts though.
Stripes or Plaid ? I don't really wear plaid so I'll go with stripes.
Flip Flops or Sandals ? Heels. :P
Scarves or Hats ? Scarves.
Studs or Dangly Earrings ? Either. But I mostly wear smaller earrings.
Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots ? Neither.
Jacket or Hoodie ? I don't think I own any hoodies, although sometimes I steal my husbands! So I'll go with jackets.
Curly or Straight ? My hair is curly naturally. I usually wear it wavy.
Bun or Ponytail ? Mostly I wear my hair down but I rarely wear a ponytail so I'll say buns.
Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips ? I use bobby pins like they're going out of style!
Hair Spray or Gel ? Hair spray. It's entirely necessary for teasing.
Long or Short ? My hair is SUPER thick and it gets heavy so I keep it mid-length
Light or Dark ? I prefer it darker. But I don't dye it and it's sort of a medium auburn.
Side-swept Bangs or Full Bangs ? Both. Full when I'm not feeling lazy.
Up or Down ? Down mostly.
Rain or Shine ? I love rain. :)
Summer or Winter ? Winter.
Fall or Spring ? Fall
Chocolate or Vanilla ? I don't like chocolate so I'll go with vanilla.
OK that's it for the awards!! I'm not tagging anyone since I did so many at once! lol...but I really appreciate all the wonderful awards you guys have given me! :)
