COngrats on the award. I haven't seen The Elf but Will Farell should be worth watching

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Congrats on the award!! Definitely well-deserved. :) And I loved reading more about you. I think it's pretty awesome you're a yoga instructor. I have been wanting to try it for a long time, but of course I make every excuse in the book. (I'm mostly just terrified that I will go to class and realize I'm more out of shape than I thought and people will stare at me in disgust). :S

What a fun tag to answer! Haha to question number 10! I agree... def. the mascara on one eye would be less noticeable than the blush. :)
