Wow, I am completely blown away. For the second time,I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award that recognizes positivity, motivation, inspiration and just an all around ray of sunshine to fellow bloggers by fellow blogger. It is truly a remarkable feeling knowing that your words and post actually touch a few people. A bit scary that as I open myself up to the world, you guys are actually taking the time to read. The blogger that nominated me is Kayla Renee and you can find her at www.uniquelyminded.com . She has been an inspiration to me, from the beginning of our Twitter journey and blogger "sistership" she has been cheering me on. You have no idea how motivating that is for a new blogger like myself. I started the blog in February and it has truly taken off. So Kayla, I want to genuinely say Thank You. 

My passion as a write has really blossomed. I have grown to love everything about blogging and I want to break the mold of bloggers only being pretty faces that take pictures all day but that we have real words, real stories, real reviews and we are definitely making an impact in this world and unto others. So, sadly, the first time I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award I had NO IDEA of the rules and what I was suppose to do. BY THE WAY thank you @bonnietraveller. I want to get it right this time especially since you guys are taking the time to read my content and for that I am truly grateful.

The rules of the award go as following:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you by linking their blog.
  2. Answer the questions.
  3. Nominate your favorite bloggers
  4. List the rules as well as display the Sunshine Award Logo on your post.
Simply enough, Right? These are the questions given to me by Kayla:

What made you start your blog specifically?

Well, I recently stop working to become a stay at home mom for my three kids ( 3 and younger) to avoid the million dollar cost of daycare. With fear of losing my identity and getting swept under the "you are a mom ONLY" stigma, I started the blog to express the days and stress of a stay at home mom. I also ventured out to some lifestyle issues as well as beauty because who doesn't like a good review on the latest beauty products. The blog was a way for me to still have a voice not to mention, adult interaction. lol

What is your biggest inspiration in Life?

My biggest inspiration is my kids. Being a mom is scary but rewarding. I want them to be proud to call me MOM. (cheesy I know)

Favorite Blogs at the moment?

Just to name a few. Of course, there are tons of great bloggers that keep me entertained.

Whats your favorite animal and why?

I am not a animal lover at all... Sorry!

Best life advice you have to offer?

Never take anything too serious. Live for yourself and know that once you let go of what you feel its suppose to look like and just live everything will fall in place. Smile, pray and believe you have a divine purpose without limitations.

Whats your highest achievement?

Birthing healthy children and owning a female barbershop in a male dominated field.

Whats your favorite part about blogging?

I get to be as creative as I want. Its my personal page that I express to the world. I also love connecting with people nationwide and inspiring and telling the raw truth about motherhood and lives journey.

What other passions do you have besides blogging? 

I am a music fanatic. The production of it, every instrument that blends to create a beat. I literally get goosebumps with the passion that comes from certain songs. I am also passionate about hairstyling, being a barber, learning to play guitar, bracelets and "funny bunny" OPI nail polish. Family is also a big hitter on that list.

What are your plans for the summer? Vacations? Goals?

My biggest goal is to loose all my baby weight. Its like a nagging boyfriend that just won't leave. Ugh!! We are also traveling to New York to visit family as well as plan a mommy and daddy trip to Costa Rica.

What do you love about yourself? Biggest quality..

I absolutely love my outgoing personality. Not to toot my own horn but I love people interaction. I also have a really big heart that sometimes leaves me doing way too much for other people. I enjoy helping others.


The questions that I have for you wonderful peeps are:
  1. What made you start your blog?
  2. What has been the biggest hurdle to face with  your blog?
  3. Do you feel like you have to filter your material for the masses?
  4. Other than your blog, what are some things that excite you?
  5. Where do you find your biggest inspirations?
  6. What are some personal goals you have set for yourself?
  7. Do you have a quote that you live by? What is it?
  8. What advice would you give for someone that is considering becoming a blogger?
  9. What is your dream city to live in?
  10. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
