New awards for my blog, some things about me & a super long post!

Among so much things to do, new posts preparing for my blog, moving house and catching a flu (I’m not complaining!) I have received 2 lovely nominations for my blog. And so the choice about my next post was easily made 🙂 It seems that we have to wait for spring (which I hope it’s not so far away) for green beauty novelties 🙂 The girls really made my day and I really appreciate when I got this kind of support.

Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

Kath from Natural Kath blog has nominated me for this award, so Thank you Kath! Here are the rules that I will try to follow:

1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar  (DONE BOTH)

2. The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, etc. (DONE BELOW)

3. The Nominee shall name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period. (DOING IT, WORK IN PROGRESS 🙂 )

4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates. (DONE)

5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and post: ”A Great reader is…”

For me a great reader is someone who reads thoroughly your post (it doesn’t necessarily have to be a follower), which means he was interested in the topic and who comments with his/her own words the post. The best is, if he also gives feedback about his ideas/wishes regarding a topic so that the blogger can considerate and evolve them in his further articles. This way both are growing and contributing to the community.

I nominee Malin from Bilbo blue eyes, Lynn from Lovely cosme blog, Jeanine from Stylishly organic, Sheila from If a goddes wore makeup (new blog coming soon!), Stephanie from She’s so eco, Alessandra from Bambi organics (Bacioni in Italia! dove vivo adesso anch’io), Liv from Pura Liv , Audreiana from True beauty by nature , Dapperdolly from Fashion that pays and Raquell Torrents, Nina G, Mara, Josie and Sheen who are also great readers although they don’t have any blog themselves. Thank you all for being great readers and for commenting my blog!

For those who come and read and don’t comment but just pass by to get some ideas/inspirations, I invite to show themselves visible, so that I can nominate them as well next time 😉

7 things about myself, (love the number 7) 🙂

1. I’m the kind of person who needs deeper answers to questions of all sorts going on in my head, even those that we don’t see just with our eyes. And till I’m not satisfied I keep on searching. I’m not a kind of woo woo woo person with the head in the clouds, but I know that we are not just a mere piece of flesh! I’m also fully aware that we are all very different and I appreciate each one’s choices.

2. I love beauty in all its forms (not just makeup related things, although these are my source of joy from an early age. btw. Today I have found by chance this picture on internet while searching some inspiration in a totally another direction. It’s a Barbie toiletry bag that I used to play with when I was little (80’s style) 😀

3. Hmm, what else…I love reading all sorts of books and magazines (fashion, beauty, art, cooking, esoteric,…), it just has to be creative and interesting enough to fulfill my endless need for new knowledge!

4. Ok, I adore eating very good and cooking too! From discovering novelties from different cultures (adore sushi), cooking and creating on my own (expert in pasta & soups), to enjoy from time to time a special design plate (as I call it) – but with natural ingredients! (No molecular cuisine please!). I think that in the kitchen creativity and good mood are the most important part of health! Uhh and all those colors are so inspiring!!!


5. It’s a magnetic attraction when I see beautiful designed clothes, bags, shoes, makeup pieces, bottles, you name it! I’m not a fashion junkie at all, but I really like when things are designed from its own spirit and imagination, curated and well manufactured. These are some of my favorite designers that I adore endlessly; Haider Ackermann, Dries van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester


This quote says a lot about this:

He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
Francesco d’Assisi

6. I love all sorts of art exhibitions


7. Lastly, I like when I lift the mood of someone who needs it, because I’m very sensitive to people’s feelings and this makes me very happy. As a great tool that helped myself as well, I have discovered and studied in the past Bach flower essences because they have helped me personally a lot on my way. And why not, share it from my fountain of knowing with others as well…

And finally, lots of hugs, kisses and a virtual bunch of flowers to everyone!

  1. Aww, thank you! I was surprised and grinning when I saw my name. I loved reading this post – you made those seven very entertaining. I had a few of the pieces from that Barbie set too, though I never had that super nifty powder puff. ;( I also loved your answer for the “what a great reader is” question. Thank you much for nominating me! And a virtual bouquet of flowers for you, too. 🙂

  8. Thank you again for the nominations. Finally got around to writing about it on my blog. I feel bad it taken so long. 😦 Still have just written of one of the awards. I was meaning to do both at the same time, but now at leaf I done one. I really appreciate them hope you do not think otherwise. Just that for some reason it it easier to write reviews then doing the thong for the awards?
    Hope you are well and you also have wonderful spring time.

    • green makeup says:

      Hi Malin! From my side, I completely understand you and don’t mind at all 🙂
      Usually if I have time, I do it asap when it comes to awards, otherwise it take me so long too. It’s amazing to get an award but it’s not the same as writing a review. Don’t worry about it.
      Hope you are fine too and that despite low temperatures in Sweden, you enjoy the spring!
      Best, Dasha
