Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Or like a Shine On award- your choice.
I was nominated for a Shine On Award by the amazing Nicole over at Nicole Marica, and since I haven't done one of the "get to know the blogger" posts in a while, I thought I'd give it a shot.
Thanks Nicole!

1. I'm 16 years old. Not the most interesting, but a little bit unusual in the realm of 20 and 30 something mom/fashion/diy/lifestyle bloggers.
Okay, I'm done using these photos. I promise. 

2. I’m such a big Harry Potter fan that I named my dog Bellatrix. Before y’all get upset about Bellatrix Lestrange’s role as a villain and all that jazz, it also means “Beautiful Warrior.”
"Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?!"
Bonus points if you leave a comment with the reference!

3. I absolutely love (and overuse) parenthetical statements. Not in real essay writing of course, but blogging wise. That’s how I think, so that’s how I write.

4. I can't keep my nails painted for my life. It doesn't happen.

5. I happen to think I have the best friends. Ever. Who else would cover me in tin foil for almost an hour so I could be a Tin Man for our homecoming gauntlet? The theme was Wizard of Oz in case you can't tell. (Confused? Don't worry- I've got a whole post coming up on this)

6. I love photography. so much. I love being behind the lens, but I also like having my picture taken. That's not normal, is it? 

Yes, I forgot to wear my Junior Class t-shirt. 

7. I can quote Mean Girls like it's the fetchest thing on the planet. (Cue the "You go, Glen Coco!")

And there are my 7 facts! I nominate

Mikaela from Mikaela Rae

I had fun doing this- I hope you enjoyed reading it. Thanks again for nominating me Nicole!

  1. Nothing wrong with being a Harry Potter nut! : )

  2. Bellatrix is soooooo adorable! I love Harry Potter so much, I named my old camera Luna, haha.

  3. Tried to name our last dog, Doobie to honor him. For some reason the hubbie just wouldn't agree.

  4. Your dogs name is Bellatrix? You are such a winner in my book. So cute!

    "Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?" Would that be a Full House reference? :)

  5. Love it!! I love all your facts and it's totally normal to want to take photos yet get in on them. I'm a photographer but I LOVE getting my photo taken hehe

    Thanks again for nominating me! Can't wait to read more about you!

  6. They are a giant in the online diamond industry and are a publicly traded company, so any concerns about their legitimacy can quickly be dismissed. Blue Nile is best known for their "Blue Nile Signature" diamond collection--diamonds whose cut quality falls within the top 1% of all diamonds.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! You probably just made my day :) I do my best to reply to every single one, even if it takes a little while. Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger so we don't get deprived of a wonderful conversation!
