As mentioned yesterday, I was tagged by Kristin over at Discover Interior Design for the Honest Scrap Award. Following the award rules, I am to share 10 Honest Things about myself :

1. I permed and highlighted my hair in high school…it was pretty much a frizzy dry mess!

2. I’m so bad at maintaining my plants. They certainly don’t look this good:

3. Although I took a few levels of advanced calculus in college, should someone need help with that subject, I’d be totally useless because I can’t remember a thing!

4. When I was younger I hated my name because when we’d go to theme parks, I could never find a souvenir with my name on it.

5. I get nervous if I’m traveling to a new place and I don’t have my GPS navigation system with me.

6. I can be a total crybaby.

7. On days when my hair is “second (or third) day dirty”, I’ll put it in sleek ponytail…it usually looks better than when I try to do a ponytail with freshly washed hair.

8. I wish I had paid better attention in my accounting classes -it’d really come in handy right now that I’m starting my own business.

9. I live in a big city but eventually I plan on moving to a smaller city, particularly one where there’s less traffic. I love being in laid-back relaxed environments, preferably near the beach!

10. I hate washing the dishes and usually leave that chore for my husband to do :)

Now, to pass on the award to 7 brilliant bloggers, here are my picks (in no particular order):

I hope you’ll spend some time checking out each the blogs above. You’re sure to find great inspiration! Have a lovely weekend!

    I remember the same hair experience – I guess we all have photos to discard of that period. Your list was entertaining and nicely illustrated!

  • Jessica

    This was fun – thanks for sharing! I'm hopeless with directions, yet I don't own a GPS. I curse myself every single time I make a wrong turn and vow to buy one.

  • Jaime

    Arianna, you made my day. :) I'm so glad to be picked by such a beautiful, inspiring, and smart woman. You are a muse.

    oh i love #7. Bed Head is how i usually wear my hair when it gets that way. I wish I could pull off the sleek pony tail.
