One Lovely Blog Award

I was so honored to have this blog nominated by Angela of The Texpat Starling for the One Lovely Blog Award!

Here are the rules of acceptance:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
  • Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
  • Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
  • Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

Thank you, Angela, for nominating my blog! This is such a surprise for someone who just started blogging five months ago.

7 Possibly Unknown Things About Me:

  1. I am addicted to pens.
  2. My favorite place to visit while growing up in Taipei, Taiwan was my father’s friend’s eraser showroom. Every time we visited, my brother and I each was handed a small bag, and we would tour the display cases and point to what we wanted to have in our bags. The erasers came in all shapes: a set of markers, a miniature book, a cookie, a razor,… etc. Our absolute favorite was the set of carts with circus animals on them. Unfortunately, that was for display only.
  3. I have donated to ‘Locks of Love‘ five times since 2000.
  4. I wanted to be a race car driver when I was little. But once I learned how to drive, I find driving stressful.
  5. I always have makeup on if I am to be seen outside my home. This includes going to the mailbox.
  6. I refused to have an engagement ring. I wanted just one simple wedding ring (sapphire set in platinum) that I can wear everyday.


7. I handmade the navy blue bridal veil.

I am nominating these blogs for the One Lovely Blog Award:

I don’t read enough blogs to nominate 15. (I did not list the non-English blogs that I enjoy.) But I promise all the blogs listed above were carefully selected. Some of the blogs have already been nominated for the award, but they deserved my nomination. Thank you for reading, and please visit these blogs. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.

  1. wow, I am so excited about the nomination! quite an honor. You like Spiderman? what a great quote of uncle Ben. You sure are a woman of clear goals. Even growing your hair is purposeful. Love your passion for this great cause. Did not know about your pen addiction. I guess I’d better complete and ship you that pencil case soon, girl.

    • I did see the quote from ‘Spiderman’. Maybe this quote from ‘Ever After’ is better: ‘you were born to privilege and with that comes specific obligations’. I do feel having dark, shining, and healthy hair is a privilege. I am waiting to see F gets her hair cut off for Locks of Love! She is going to feel so good!
      Hmm…. maybe I need a pencil (suit)case. Just kidding! What you made is lovely! I will trade you with some Soapy Soaps.

  4. I can’t believe you’ve donated 5 times to Locks of Love! I haven’t even managed to do it once. Impressive.
    I can’t wait to check out the blogs I don’t know.

    • With great power comes great responsibility. My super power is growing strong healthy hair. Without trimming, I can ‘harvest’ about 15″ every 2 years. I am slowly working on my 6th time. With my fabulous hair stylist friend making me looking good all the time, I embrace every length and not rushing to grow my hair.
