The Sunshine Blogger Award


Hi guys! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Elisabeth from Everything and Nothin! If you haven’t already checked out her blog, I highly recommend it!

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from your nominators.
  • Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.


What is your favorite season?

Definitely summer. I love a nice sunny day on the deck at the cottage with a good book!

How long have you been blogging?

I started my blog around the beginning of August 2015 so it was fairly recent!

What blog post are you most proud of (link it)?

The blog post I am most proud of is my first one because it took a lot of courage to put myself out there and I am so glad that I did. I think that my posts have improved, but I will always look back fondly at the first one.

Name 3 accomplishments you have made in your life.

I graduated University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology.

I got married in July 2014, my husband and will have been together for 10 years this upcoming April!

Although it is fairly recent, starting this blog is one of my accomplishments. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’m very proud of it!

What is the worst beauty product you have ever used?

Hmm, I don’t really have many that I dislike since I tend to do research before I purchase things. I really didn’t like the Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade Easy. I think it mostly had to do with the shade, but I also didn’t like the glossy finish. I do love every single other Colourpop product that I own though!

Who or what inspires you?

Any one who has started a blog or YouTube channel who has found success in it (no matter how big or how small). I think that is just incredible! It’s so great to see people doing well when they are doing something that they love and are clearly passionate about.

What is your go to hairstyle?

Down with Marc Anthony Curl Envy Perfect Curl Styling Cream! I just throw some in when it is wet and let it air dry.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is bad movie theatre etiquette. For example, texting in the theatre, kicking seats, talking, etc. Texting is the worst one, getting that bright light in your eye isn’t pleasant!

How often do you wear makeup each week?

Every single day! Unless I absolutely know I’m not leaving the house and I don’t have a blog post planned. I tend to photograph my makeup on the weekends for the blog so I end up wearing makeup even on lazy days.

Favorite social media platform?

Probably Facebook because I love how you can share photos and connect with people that you don’t get a chance to see all the time. It is great being able to share photos with friends and family who are both near and far!

What is your most favorite thing about blogging?

I love having an outlet to share my passion for beauty products with other people who share my interests! I’ve met so many great people since I started the blog!

    • You’re welcome! It was fun to do! I’ve had it half written ever since you tagged me and I’ve just been slowly plugging away at answering the questions 🙂 It’s actually only just that one Colourpop Lippie Stix that I don’t like. It’s a glossy finish and between that and the colour it just looks… strange on me, haha! I keep trying to like it but it just doesn’t agree with me!

  1. Congrats on the award!
    Theatre etiquette – UGH, I so agree. I went to watch Hunger Games on Saturday and annoying people talking or texting during the movie.
    Wow, you’ve been with your husband for 10 years? I’m going on 9 years with my SO… we’re not married. We get pestered all the time. I bet you experienced that too before you tied the knot!
    Thanks so much for the nomination. 🙂

    • Thank you!! 🙂 movie theatre etiquette is basically why I only go to really late movies (less people st them)!
      Surprisingly we weren’t pestered that much but I was 16 when we started dating so we got married around the same time that other people my age were starting to get married. But I can imagine if we weren’t married now we would probably hear it all the time! People always think they know what’s best for everyone else and that drives me crazy too, haha! If you’re happy, that’s all that should matter 🙂
