The Versatile Blogger Award



I was delighted to discover after returning home the other day that the talented Envy from Picking Up the Pieces had nominated me for my first blog award! Today, thanks to Envy, I am honored to complete The Versatile Blogger Award.


Rules:

+ Thank the blogger who nominated you

+ Share 7 random facts about yourself and answer the challenge

+ Nominate 5 (or more) bloggers who you think fit the definition of 'versatile' 
+ Make up a new challenge
+ Create your own 'Versatile Blogger Award Picture' and add it to your post

Facts:
1. After seeing the circus as a child, I wanted to be a trapeze artist when I grew up.
2. I fractured my wrist right before first grade. My cast was neon pink.
3. My favorite authors are Stephanie Perkins and Kate Brian, although I also enjoy the works of    countless others.
4. My favorite indulgence remains the Lofthouse Frosted Sugar Cookies.
5. As cliché as it sounds, one of my favorite movies is Mean Girls.
6. Rings are not my friends. They always feel heavy and unnatural on my fingers.
7. My dream is to go to Cereality, a little cereal bar in Texas and Virginia.

Challenge:
Envy challenged me to share seven places I'd like to visit in my lifetime. I love travel, so this challenge was perfect for me!

I'd like to visit

The Great Wall of China - The history behind it is enthralling. I love to sight-see, and this is definitely one of my must-see destinations.

Tokyo - I need to visit this modern, techy, edgy city. It's the center of so my fandoms, styles, and boutiques. I can only imagine all the interesting souvenirs!

The Louvre - After studying the Mona Lisa at school, I need to see it in all its pride and glory in the actual museum.

Buckingham Palace - I want to take a tour and see just how serious the guards are for myself! :)

Sistine Chapel - I know so much about this magnificent chapel, with its gorgeous hand-painted ceiling. It is so breathtaking that I want to see it with my own eyes.

Belgium - I want to tour it as a whole, rather than just a landmark. I have a major sweet tooth, and what better way to satisfy it than visit the place known for its chocolate?

Colosseum  - This amphitheater, the heart of the Roman Empire, is a must for me. It's a Wonder of the World as well.

Nominees:
I nominate
Racic @Washed by the Water
Kanra @The Lunar Descent
Arushee @Unadorned Gifts
Vanshi @Up, Up, and Away
Kelsey @Empty Boxes

I challenge these girls to share seven special memories or events in their lives.

What is one place that you want to visit in your lifetime?

  2. Sweet facts! Mean Girls is such a good movie. They shouldn't have made a sequel. :P I want to go to Tokyo too one day...:)

    1. Thank you, Jo! I agree, the Mean Girls sequel didn't have much of a plot at all.
      Have a beautiful day!

  3. Haha, I love your facts! Mean Girls is one of my favourite movies too! I totally love Regina George, although I'd hate to be around someone like her in reality.
    And I love the places you've mentioned too! Each has its own history, which is why I love visiting places. I have this crazy list in my mind regarding the places that I'd love to visit!
    Stay awesome as ever,
    Much love,
    Archie <3

  9. Rings are unnatural and evil and Lord of the Rings is proof!
    The Great Wall of China is something I want to see too, and Tokyo was on my list as you've seen. I want to go to the Louvre because I read and loved the Da Vinci Code :P
    All the other places on your list are places I've laready visited. Especially the Colosseum was awesome!
