Integrity's So Overrated

or click here if you don't want to go to youtube.

Appaaarently you get rewarded for being a being a lying, cheating, blog-post stealing blogger though. Cause I got a blogger award!


The Liebster is an award given to up-and-coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  That would be me! Wooopeeeee!!!

The glorious, ever-funny Erica over at Touch of Embellishment sent this awesome award my way. All 19 of you readers should go check her out if you haven't already. She's unfairly good at writing and illustrating funny blog posts. I'm kind of obsessed with her. Her, not her blog. Haha! ....but seriously..

To accept the award you have to answer 10 questions and then pass it along with more questions to someone. 
So here goes:

1.  Has a book ever changed your life?  If so, which one and why?
 Hrrm… I'm not sure about changing my life.. I super liked greek mythology growing up. I reread a mythology book so many times it feel to pieces, but I think I changed that book waaaaay more than it changed me.

2.  Are you a spender or a saver?
I'd say a spender, unfortunately.

3.  Would you rather spend life in prison or be executed?
Life in prison! Just for the small chance that I can dig my way out with a spoon. Ya never know...

4.  Do you give handwritten thank you's?  Why or why not?
I did for years growing up because my mom made me. Since then I haven't been so good at it. Why? Because I'm lazy.

5.  Have you ever been on T.V.?
A few times. The first time I modeled a fashion segment on the San Antonio News.  My hairdresser had just discovered some sort of semi-gloss-hairspray-hair refreshener stuff and RAAAVED about it continually to me and the other hairdressers while we were prepping for the show.

    "OMigod this stuff is like the hulk had a kid with Andre the Giant and that kid did copious amounts of crack!!!"
   "It'll make your hair shine  and super soft and still hold it's place and fix any split ends and you can never have to much and it'll never make your hair look greasy and… and.. and..."

     All the while she was spraying more and more of this crap onto my head. Me, being a little 16 year old, was too scared to say anything about it and just smiled politely and nodded and the other hair dressers gave me pitying looks.
    The girl lied. I ended up having my hair in clumps of greasy looking streakiness. It was sick. I was embarrassed.

        My other most memorable time was when I was on one of the finale episodes of Bravo's The Fashion Show.  I had gone to a go-see and at least two fittings and the designer who was doing my dress was Obsessed with me.

    "OOOO DAAAHLIng, you're so FIERCE!" and the like was said and he decided to put me in his finale piece, the look to close the show.
     "WEeeeeeeee!!!" I thought.

     I was wrong. My dress was incredibly heavy, made up entirely of sequins, and a good two or three inches too long for me when I was in heels, so I had to kick it when I walked (even after adjustments were made) just so I wouldn't trip and fall on my face.

    Also I got to be the only girl in his group to wear a troll wig. What's that you say? You don't believe me? I'm exaggerating? "HA!" I say!

Oh and I guess I forgot to mention the inflate-a-pumpkin coat. It was ridiculously hard to walk.

Here's the video:

The collection that I'm in, Merlin's, starts at 4:57
That's my NOT happy face.

6.  What is your biggest regret?
I have a long list of things in my life that I still think about that I wish I had just tried a little harder at or not given up. Instruments, sports, dance, goals, dreams, other corny stuff, etc.

7.  How do you feel about chihuahua's?
 I love chihuahuas!! Even the yappy ones. The little yappy guys that seem to just want to bite my nose off just make me want to be their friend all the more. I actually was obsessed with long haired chihuahuas for a while, but never passed any "long haired chihuahuas for sale" booths on the side of the road so I never ended up acquiring one.

8.  Would you rather be super attractive or super wealthy?
Wealthy! And then I'd get plastic surgery and buy friends and live happily ever after.

9.  What was your biggest concern when you were young?
Eh. I had a talent of not worrying, ever, growing up. I let my mom be concerned/worry for me.  Thanks Mom! :)

10.  Who would you not want to read your blog?
 I dunno... I don't really have a lot of sensitive content on my blog, so I'm not really hiding it from anyone. Creepy stalker people maybe? Or someone that's super duper good at art and is going to judge my drawings? Or people that kick puppies? Or people that cut in line at McDonalds? Or people that walk really slowly in front of you on the sidewalk? Or people that don't like coffee? Or people that sit in restaurants just to glare at anyone entering with a baby, no matter how well behaved that baby is? Everyone else is probably allowed to read my blog. Probably.

I'm awarding the Liebster award to Cerena over at Secret Life of a Med Student. She's super funny, tells a good story, and does adorable drawings of cats. What more could you want? So my questions are:
1. What 5 things would you grab to go hide away with in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse?
2. Halloween, Birthday, or Christmas?
3. What should I name my next pet?
4. What do you think is the most important lesson for the younger generation to learn?
5. What is the solution to the less than stellar job market?
6. Do you like the My Little Pony television series?
7. Can we be friends?
8. If you could have 3 people in history (past, present, or future) over for dinner, who would it be?
9. What was an awesomely awesome embarrassing moment you had growing up?
10.What are 3 random facts most people don't know about you?

Longest. Blog Post. Ever.



  1. Cute video (the first, not the show). Evil troll. :/ Did I mention I liked the video? We want to see more Izzy! (Not in a naked sort of way, just more often.)

    1. Thanks! I enjoy making videos, so I'll make some more non-troll videos in the future. :)

  2. Wow! Yay for television appearances! Only the fierce girls get troll wigs. I bet the others were jealous.

    1. Haha! Maaaybe... Most little girls do dream of growing up to be trolls. Little Mermaid, Snow White, and the troll that lives under the bridge in Billy Goat Gruff. All role models in their own special way.

  3. Congratulations, izzy, and thank you very much for the nomination!
