Dragon’s Loyalty Award

I was double tagged for this Dragon’s Loyalty Award!  I was nominated by StyledWithJoy and Plus+Beauty – 2 of my most favourite blogs to read! Thanks ladies, it’s always the highlight of my day when I get to interact with you online! 🙂

  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself

7 interesting things about me:

1. I really love the smell of pipe tobacco – it’s a sweet earthy scent that makes me want to cozy up against the owner of that pipe, but usually it’s some old man! 😉

2. I rarely match my nail polish to my toe polish – I’m usually business on the fingers and party on the toes 😛  Speaking of party, has anyone seen these Bootie Babe nail polishes?  I need at least one bottle in my life.

3. I’m terrible with directions. I still have to use the the mnemonic “Never Eat Shredded Wheat” to help orient myself.

4. I have 28 teeth – 14 up top and 14 lower. I googled “How many teeth should an adult human have” and the answer is 32.  I had a couple of “fangs” removed from the lower jaw due to overcrowding, and I think my top molars were removed when I got my wisdom teeth pulled too (go ahead, count your teeth with your tongue right now, I just did that like a sexy beast – how many teeth do you have?)

5. I do not comb my hair regularly (it’s about shoulder blade length right now).  I will sometimes run a wide tooth comb that I keep in the shower but that’s like maybe once every other month…

6. I really want to try coloured contact lenses (not those circle lenses) to change my boring dark brown eyes into something more interesting like hazel, or grey – something subtle like this:

I’ve been too chicken to try them because I’m worried I’ll damage my eyes somehow since I have no need for them.  I know they’re available in non-prescription, but I’m worried I’ll scratch my cornea or something.

7. I love the shows Food Factory and How It’s Made – I’m always amazed how not automated a lot of the manufacturing process are!  I especially love the episodes that feature sweet treats!

I won’t be nominating anyone am only nominating mirrorthelove and Infinitely Awkward for this 😉 since most of you seem to have already received this award! But, if any of you want to make a post listing 7 interesting things about yourself, I’d love to read them! 😀

* About the header image: When I first saw this award, I immediately thought of the movie “Pete’s Dragon” – apparently they’re doing a remake of it to be released next year!

  1. First and foremost, I about burst out laughing at those nail polish bottles! They are hilarious and even if the polish was awful, I’d still get the jar 😂 I find directions NSEW easy because I live on the east coast, so I just think of that, but when someone asks me right or left I sometimes have to think about which hand I write with! I find the smell of pipes and cigars comforting too! They remind me of my uncle, who used to always have a pipe, and of being on the continent where it seemed like cigar smoke was everywhere. Great post – I think facts posts are some of my favourite generally. X

  2. Congratulations! 😊
    There are some young man who prefers pipe tobaccos though. Somewhere near Scott D.? 😁
    I was scrolling down after no. 2 and literally saw booties! I wonder what’s behind the concept aside from the obvious (eye catching it is!)
    Any tips for easy peasy navigation? I’m bad at that too!
    I find myself smiling to know that aside from us (sisters) you also seldom combs your hair. 😜

    1. I have no tips on navigation except to recommend that you keep your phone on you always! lol
      Hair combing is overrated – my hair isn’t any more tangled than anyone else’s, honestly!
      I have no clue why someone developed those bootie nail polishes but I guess there’s a market for everything! 😛

  3. I freaking loveeeeeeeee Food Factory! It’s so cool! Plus I have an addiction to sweets so it’s just fun to watch 🙂 Also I love the smell of pipe tobacco too. Especially in the Fall and Winter… it’s just so rustic and cozy 🙂

  4. I always thought dark brown eyes were beautiful and exotic! But I grew up in a household with hazel, green, and blue eyes. =P Congratulations! Just when I nominated you for this myself, oops.

  5. Yay! I loved reading this!! Thank you so much for the kind words and mention! ❤ Those Bootie Babe nail polishes look so funny! lol. Sometimes I think it would be fun to try brown eyes with having lighter blue/green eyes myself. It was great to get to learn more about you! 🙂 xo

  6. You are LMAO funny. I can’t believe those booty bottles. LOOOOL. I want one.

    I also love watching Food Factory. My bro and I were mesmerized by the candy cane edition they did for the holidays.

    I had 8 teeth extracted as a kid (though I’m sure a couple of them were baby teeth) and never counted how many I have now. I have big teeth and a teeny mouth, so I’m always having minor dental issues. I apparently may need another tooth extracted, too. 😦 But I have rarely ever gotten cavities, so yay for me and flossing!

    Those circle lenses are creepy as hell. Hazel colored contacts sound good, though 😀 I’ve always loved green eyes, myself. I guess we always want what we don’t have!

    1. I honestly was googling nail polishes and that photo came up – I thought it was a joke but nope! I’m just picturing them describing the shape they wanted to a glass bottle manufacturer in China. “So like, JLo or KimK shaped” LOL

      Ugh cavities! For all the candy I ate as a kid – I NEVER had a cavity until I reached adulthood. No I’m plagued by what they call “pin hole” cavities that are embedded into the crevices of my molars. They said there’s not much I can do about them because I have “groovy” teeth – it’s not flossing or anything. 😦 I’ve had 3 of them in the past 2 years! But the procedure is so quick and minor (10 mins in the chair) that the last one they asked if I even wanted to get freezing. I opted for freezing, cuz um, I don’t want to risk it. The concept of teeth and dentistry is SO weird to me.

      Yes, the holiday special of Food Factory! I loooooved that one! 😀

      1. Bahaha! Seriously, one day someone’s gonna end up with a massive supply of those booty bottles and wonder what the heck they were for.
        Ooh, the pinhole cavities kinda suck. 😦 Good thing they seem fairly easy to fix, though. I hate going to the dentist, but apparently tartar builds up quickly for me. Sigh.

  7. Bootie Babe made me laugh! I think you should try out contact lenses, you can get ones for just 7 weeks and similar. So you can see how it feels and if you’re comfortable enough. I’ve been wearing lenses for at least 3 years, not because I wanted to change colour, but because I really can’t see anything without them or glasses 😀 But I never had problems during these years, so I’m sure as long as you follow the instructions, you’ll be absolutely fine!
    You don’t comb your hair often?! I am jealous. My hair gets tangled so fast!
    (Also, I might just pretend you’ve nominated me for this and do it haha :P)

    1. Oh yes, I’ve toyed with getting the short term lenses – less commitment. I’m going to schedule an appointment with an optometrist and I’ll inquire! Good to know you haven’t experienced any issues with them.
      Um, what are you talking about? I totally nominated you for this! 😉

  8. I’m totally with you on the pipe tobacco front! It’s such a soothing, cozy scent.
    Those nail polish bottles! They’re amazing! Lol! I’ve never heard of that brand but those are hilarious.
    What’s your hair texture? I generally only comb my hair in the shower (unless I’m being fancy and straightening it) because I have curly/wavy combo hair and brushing it makes it angry.
    Man, Pete’s Dragon was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I’m kind of excited that they’re doing a remake, it was a cool storyline!
