Blog Awards + A Giveaway

         Yesterday, The Phalanges Files won two cute awards from Blu11 at Polish Drops!! So big thanks to her and to the people who read and/or leave comments!  Here are the awards and rules:

The Sunshine Award

1. Save the image above and post it on your own blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
3. Link the nominees
4. Let nominees know they have won this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person you received this award from.


The Happy 101 Award

1. Post who gave you this award
2. State 10 things you like
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers and notify them with a comment

   The Happy 101 Award asks for 10 nominees, and the Sunshine Award asks for 12. I thought about doing 22, but that's too many for a lazy like me. And then 10 is too small. So I'm going to split the difference and pick 16 nominees. Also, I'm going to only choose blogs with fewer than 300 followers...some of my absolute favorite blogs are bigger than that, but I wanted to highlight some smaller blogs like mine. So here we go, in no particular order:

  And then ten things that make me happy:
1. Nail polish, and everything involved in it! I'm extra partial to glitter.
2. Art
4. My family...sometimes, I want to beat them with sharp sticks, but mostly, I love them.
5. Really good television shows
6. Good looking men
7. Water (not the kind you drink, but like pools and oceans)
8. Tasty food.
9. Stiletto heels.
10. Winter
11.  Money (I just couldn't not put that one in ^_^; )

And for the second order of business, there's a giveaway! And surprise, it's actually mine! :D
Yeahh, the first giveaway at The Phalanges Files!  It's only a small one, because I'm still unemployed and can't really afford a big giveaway. But I wanted to show how much I appreciate you guys! 
Here's the stuff that will go to one lucky (sort of) follower:

A set of four L.A. Colors Metallic Polishes


A small group of Sinful Colors Polishes. 
L-R: Rise and Shine, Bali Mist, All About You, Secret Admirer, What's Your Name?, and Green Ocean

For this giveaway, I'm going to take it back to the playground and lock the nobody else can play. What that means is that if you are not a follower at the moment that this post goes live, you can't enter the giveaway. It's not to be mean, and sorry if that seemed mean. It sounded a little mean. But I just want to give special consideration to the followers I have now. Everyone can play next time. ^_^
 If you did qualify and want to enter, all you have to do is write one comment containing the name you follow under and an active email address.
Super easy, right?
The giveaway will be open to errybody on Planet Earth, because we are the world. AND we are the children.
I'll be taking entries until September 25th, and the winner will be announced on the 26th.

Have a happy Friday, everyone!!!
