YAY SOOOO I’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Lavrax from lavraxlondon.com!
Just a few things I’d like to say about her. She’s such an awesome and lovely girl who is fairly new to blogging like me but DAYUM, she is moving up in ranks. Whether it’s about a blog post or on Instagram, she really puts a lot of thought into the comments she makes. She’s just a ball of energy and sunshine – It’s so heartwarming and that’s why I always love seeing her responses on blogs / social media. She also just had her One Monthiversary so check out her post on that! She makes great and interesting posts regularly so be sure to give her some love and check her page out!
I’ve ALSO been nominated by the great Susan from purrsiantea.com!
A few things about Susan – she is one of the awesome book and game bloggers I know out there! I love reading her reviews about games and OST soundtracks. I think she really picks great topics and has a super interesting blog. I honestly don’t know or remember how I came across her blog or Twitter profile but I’m sooo glad I did! I enjoy her feed a lot and I think she’s another blogger worth looking into, if you don’t follow her already!

7 Things About Me:
1. I love playing video games!
If I had any free time, besides working on my blog, I would be playing video games. I play on both console and PC (my current laptop is a POS and I can only unfortunately play non-demanding games) but right now, I’m playing more PC games. Some current games I play are: MapleStory & MapleStory 2 (official release is today actually!), Stardew Valley, Don’t Starve Together, Portal 2, and a few more games. I’m hoping to build my own PC soon. If / when I do, I’d love to play Skyrim, Overwatch, Subnautica, My Time at Portia, Monster Hunter World, and more!
2. I’ve only ever been in one relationship and it’s a long distance relationship.
I’ve never been one who has felt pressured or been in a hurry to date. If I found someone and we clicked, then great. My first (and current) boyfriend and I met through Discord, a website and chat app for gamers. We’ve known each other for nearly 2 years now, and since we met we’ve talked for every. single. day. With that said, we’ve only decided to pursue a closer, more intimate relationship a few months ago (6 months?). It’s a little difficult because it’s long distance (he’s in Canada and I’m in the US) and it’s not the same when you can physically be with your partner, but we make do, as he is still in the process of getting a bachelors and can’t relocate yet. We talk, we watch movies together, we play video games online. Believe it or not, with such a long distance relationship, we run into some bumps in the road but I’m super thankful that we’re always (so far) able to communicate and quickly resolve things. He wants to come over next Summer so hopefully it will happen!
3. I currently hate where I live.
I love the scenery and how peaceful it is, but literally the specific neighborhood I live in is the worst!! I swear this little pocket of New Jersey is so frequently prone to power outages and flooding. Because we’re not considered a “high priority” area, we have to wait much longer to get our power back. Not. a. fan. Not to mention, my internet is the absolute worst (we recently upgraded from 1 Mbps download / 1 Mbps upload to a 7 / 1 connection. Yippee… 🙄) in this area. I feel like this county is so isolated from the rest of the state and I dislike that. Not sure where I would move to, but there’s a chance it might be out of state… or out of country? lol
4. Bath and Body Works is the bomb diggity.
From the lotion to the body mist to the soap to the hand sanitizers to the candles. I love them ALL! I spend so much time in this store even if it’s just for one item because there’s so many to sniff and too many things I want to take home. It excites me whenever I see more coupons come in the mail but I swear the freebies are getting smaller and smaller! 😣
5. I love desserts.
Brownies, cake, cookies, cheesecake, pie, eclairs, ice cream, donuts … I’ll eat them all! 🍨🍬🍩 I’m pretty much the dessert queen out of all of my friends.
6. My blog was initially only going to be about Dental Hygiene.
Years ago, when I first wanted to start a blog, I had wanted to use it only to document my adventures and struggles through dental hygiene school, as well as hopefully give tips to current students. However, that plan evolved into what my blog is about now. Boy am I glad I decided to make it a bigger, more generalized lifestyle blog because now that I think about it, I would have an extremely small audience and perhaps I wouldn’t have met the same amazing people I’ve come to know today!
7. I don’t know anything about makeup.
I only ever put on eyeliner and mascara. On very special days. Probably like 3-5 times in a year? Makeup intimidates me so much because there’s so much to look at. Every time I pass by an Ulta or Sephora, I get easily overwhelmed by the selection and I quickly scurry out of there. I definitely wished I knew how to blend eyeshadow and know what steps to put on (with foundation, concealer, bronzer, etc.) if I DID want to put makeup on. YouTube is really helpful but it’s… yeah… I just can’t. 😂
Now I give the award to:
