The Sunshine Blogger Award – TAKE 2 & 3

—— WE’VE MOVED: Check out this post on my new site! ——

WOW I’m so honored to be nominated for the Sunshine Blogger award again & AGAIN! My two month blogging anniversary was just a few days ago and I can’t believe how wonderful and welcoming the blogging community has been to me these last 8 weeks. I’m so grateful!

Thank you so much to the wonderful Jamie for nominating me! She runs a great travel, mental health, and lifestyle blog which you can check out here!

Also, thank you so much to The Spicy Bean!! Check out her blog here for some awesome posts (and a hilarious blog name!).

So, what even is the Sunshine Blogger Award? 

Its an awesome award given to a blogger that is inspirational through their positivity and creativity in the blogging community.

So, basically, I’m so thankful to have been nominated for this. One of my biggest passions is to spread positivity and happiness because I know the world needs it so much.


  1. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Now, lets get on with the Q&A! (Usually there are 11 questions, but I’m combining two posts so I will keep the 22 answers short!)

Jamie’s Questions:

1- Whats your favourite animal and why?

To put it simply: I adore dogs. I know its cliche but really, they make me so happy! I have a Schnoodle (part Schnauzer and part Poodle) and she is my little sunshine.

2- Whats been your best birthday/Christmas present?

Oh wow, this question is harder than it seems! The first thought that comes to mind is a Christmas present that my aunt got me, its a ceramic dog (again, I like dogs) that sits like its meditating! It’s the cutest thing ever and reminds me, every time that I look at it, to stay mindful and calm.

3- Where do you wish to go on holiday?

Definitely Chicago, my favorite city!

4- What is your favourite item of make-up?

I truthfully don’t think I can pick just one. Maybe lipstick? But I also can’t live without eyeliner and mascara, nor my eyebrow pencil… oh and concealer too! Well I guess my favorite item to shop for would be lipstick, so I’ll stick with that!

5- What is your best and worst childhood memory?

My best childhood memory is being a core extra in a movie shot here in Detroit called Flipped! You all should check it out!

My worst childhood memory is probably just all of the embarrassing little things that happened to me, I can’t pick just one!

6- What is your “party trick”?

I can do the “thumb chopped off” trick… lol, I have no better way of explaining that!!

7- What is your favourite Tv show/ series?

Definitely The Office and Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, they’re both hilarious shows!

8- If you could do any career your wanted right now, what would it be?

I think my main goal is to become a User Experience (UX) researcher at Fortune 500 company!

9- Where is your dream location to live?

Chicago or Germany! I’ve been taking German since middle school and would love to be fluent some day.

10- If you had to choose between your laptop and your phone, what would you choose?

Oh gosh, this is tough! I guess I’ll go with my phone because it’s more portable, but I can definitely do more on my laptop!

11- What is your favourite food dish?

Pasta: Mac n Cheese, Fettuccine Alfredo, Spaghetti & Meatballs #YUM!

The Spicy Bean’s Questions:

1- Why did you start blogging?

Because I wanted an outlet for my thoughts, my UX skills, and a creative outlet.

2- What’s the best book you’ve ever read? Why did you like it so much?

Probably The Great Gatsby! It’s my favorite story and I think its so heartbreaking, it just sticks with you forever.

3- What do you do as your day job? Do you enjoy it?

I am a full-time college student so that’s really my “day job” but I also have a part-time job at a college here at my university, working on their website and social media sites and I enjoy it! Its a great job for a college student!

4- If you had infinite money, what would you do?

Travel the world, pay off my student loans, donate to disaster relief, buy my parents (and myself) new cars, and so much more!

5- Which brands would be your absolute dream to work with?

Spotify! They are hands down my favorite company. I think what they did for the music industry has change the way we think about music.

6- If you were a superhero what would be your superpower?

Flying, I would love to fly around to be honest, I think it would be so fun!

7- What’s your favourite thing about where you live?

The food (Detroit-style coneys are the BEST) and the beautiful Great Lakes!

8- How do you clear your head?

Yoga, reading, and writing.

9- Do you play any instruments? If not, which instruments would you love to learn?

I play the guitar but not as much as I should!

10- What age do you feel right now and why?

Like 25. I feel old enough to be out of college but young enough still to be a pretty recent graduate!

11- If you could witness any event of the past, present, or future, what would it be?

Wow this is a really great question! Honestly, probably the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. I think it would be such a powerful and unifying event.

Typically I would nominate 11 people after answering the 11 questions, but since I’ve already done this once, you can read my nominations on my last post: Sunshine Blogger Award!

Again, thank you so much! I’m so grateful.

With Love,
