First Things First

As some of you may remember, I won my first blog giveaway a few weeks ago from Spotted Moth via Tieka of Selective Potential, and it finally arrived! Hurrah!
It's definitely a statement piece, so I imagine wearing it with a simple outfit or possibly in my hair... who knows, the possibilities are endless! ;)

Annnddddd.... the lovely lady behind The October Issue honored me with the Versatile Blogger Award! If you haven't checked out her blog, do so! :) I think the rules are to list 7 things about myself and then pass the award on to a few bloggers... so here goes.
1.) I have 3 tattoos (a cherry blossom branch across my back, seven mini swallows swooping across my chest, and a traditional swallow on each wrist), and I plan on getting at least one more. What can I say, I'm hooked! ;)
2.) I have 3 dogs (all Queensland Heelers, but one is mixed with Pitbull). Panda lives with my dad and brother, and Rocco and Ginger live with my mom and me. They are crazy but I love them!
3.) I have a 16 year old brother who lives with my dad. His name is Taylor, and he is mentally ill so he doesn't leave the house/go to/school/etc. He's a funny kid though, and I luuurv him! If he ever lets me take pictures of him, I promise to post them!
4.) I live across from the street from the beach. Spoiled, eh? My house is like a little beach bungalow, and it is awesome!
5.) I used to bleach my hair white blond. Like Gwen Stefani white blond. It was fun, and I had it for about 4 years, but the upkeep was a bit much. I like changing my hair constantly, though, and always dye/ cut it.
6.)I like reality TV. Kind of lame, but it is entertaining. I'm mainly into Project Runway, America's Next Top Model, and So You Think You Can Dance. They're my guilty pleasures! ;)
7.)I don't drive on the freeway. I have, and if I had to again I could, but I really prefer not to! I don't mind driving fast, but I'm not into merging while driving fast haha! So city streets it is!

And as for the awesome bloggers I am passing the award on to...
1.) Amber Rose of Laughing with Broken Eyes
2.)Emily of Ruby Slipper Journeys
3.)Johanna from Sketchbook Six
4.) Ali from The Drawing Mannequin

5.)Ellie Rose from The Mix Kitchen

6.) Marilou from Twenty York Street

7.) Whitney from Chubby- But- Lovely
