I was so excited yesterday to receive my first blogging award from the lovely Larissa.
The Rules of this award are:
• Nominate 7 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging.
• Let them know that you have nominated them.
• Share 7 random facts about yourself.
• Thank the bloggers that have nominated you.
• Add the versatile blogger award picture to your blog post.
I'm going to switch this up a bit, and share my facts with pictures. I hope you guys enjoy, and get to know a bit more about me!
So, here are my 7 random facts:
Fact #1. Before I met my husband, I never wanted to be married. Now, I've been married 1.5 years, and couldn't imagine not being married.
Fact #2. I live to travel. So, if you have any good suggestions for places to visit this summer, please let me know!
Fact #3. Speaking of traveling, my absolute favorite place in the entire world is Salvador Dalí's self-built museum in Figueres, Spain. I've never been happier in one place, and can't wait for the opportunity to return.
Fact #4. I have an obsession with Japanese street wear, especially Lolita-type styles. I am absolutely convinced that if I were to move to Tokyo tomorrow, I would change my wardrobe completely and start dressing like a babydoll. When I was in Harajuku, I went nuts in the stores, and for the past several Halloweens, I have dressed in Lolita wear.
Fact #5. I also have a strange obsession with Hello Kitty. I just love kawaii stuff and Hello Kitty seems to fit within that realm of cuteness. I like HK so much that I even drug my sister to Puroland, a Sanrio-themed amusement park in Japan, and we were seriously the only adults there without children.
Fact #6. Nothing inspires me more than art. I LOVE many kinds of art, but modern & contemporary are especially inspiring to me. Dalí, of course, is my favorite, but I also deeply admire too many other artists to list.
Fact #7. Following up on my love of art, I am also an artist myself. I have been creating everything possible since I could first pick up a crayon. I also have a BFA and two MA degrees, one in Art Education and one in Art History. No pictures needed for this fact. :)
