Mystery Blogger Award and Unique Blogger Award

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” ~ Coretta Scott King


I was generously nominated by the incredible Jamie at Don’t Give A Jam for not one, but TWO awards! Since life has been insane, I haven’t gotten around to doing them until now. But I honestly can not tell you how much these nominations mean to me! They completely brightened my day!

Jamie is an incredibly talented blogger and writer. Don’t Give A Jam is fresh, witty and always fun. Ten out of ten, her posts ALWAYS make me laugh. What is more, she also vlogs! Her videos are incredible! She is well spoken, hilarious, and they are captivating, just like her blogs. If you aren’t following her you need to…Now! She is that person you want to grab coffee with. And probably a drink too.


The Mystery Blogger Award

The First Award Jamie nominated me for was the Mystery Blogger Award.


  • Thank whoever nominated you and link their blog
  • Tell readers 3 things about yourself
  • Answer the questions the blogger gave to you
  • Nominate 10-20 people only doing five
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  • Ask nominees 5 questions of your choice
  • Share a link to your best post(s)

Three facts:

  • I am the youngest of five and their is  fifteen years between my oldest sister and I.
  • I crack short jokes, but I am not being facetious, I am ridiculously short. Like I am not even five feet tall!
  • I was a pastry chef, and had my own cake business. Occasionally I miss it. I loved being able to bake delicious goodies and get creative designing cake.

Jamie’s Questions:

1. What is your ideal comfort food? Oh lord, first question and already my Gemini is shining through. It really depends on why I need comfort. Sometimes I just want all the junk food like ice cream and pizza, and other times sometimes just a good cup of coffee or hot chocolate provide the right amount of comfort.

2. Do you sleep on the right side or left side of the bed? I am kind of a bed hog and sleep in the middle, but If I have to choose usually it is the left and I am a left side sleeper.

3. What’s the last song you got stuck in your head? This is kind of embarrassing. When Iw as home last weekend, my nephew wanted to watch the movie Ferdinand (it is a cartoon) and Nick Jonas sings the theme song called “Home” I may or may not have downloaded it from iTunes, and have it playing on repeat…Ahem.

4. Favorite thing to do in your spare time? Again depends on my mood, but I love reading, or being at the beach, or doing both together.

5. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes! Or at the very least spirits.

My Questions:

  1. What is your favorite season? 
  2. Are you a coffee or tea drinker? 
  3. Favorite make-up brand?
  4. Where do you want to travel to next?
  5. Last TV show you watched?

My nominees are:

Jennie at 50Shad3s0fJay

Logan at Peculiar Porter

Danni at A Beautiful Thing 

Sami at Lady o’ Luxe

Angela atThe Life of Angela 

My Best Posts:

Fashionably Four Eyes

Pros and Cons of Wearing a Jumpsuit


The Unique Blogger Award 

Jamie also nominated me for my first Unique Blogger Award. I love this award. Being unique is so incredibly important to me and I love that it celebrates that we as bloggers are all unique. We might focus more on fashion or travel, but our writing is our own.

The Rules:

  1. Answer the questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
  2. Share the link of the blogger who nominated you
  3. Nominate 8-13 bloggers for the award ~ Only doing five
  4. Ask 3 questions

Jamie’s Questions:

  1. What have you done so far today? Went for a run. I met my brother and some friends for some last maple lattes. Drove to the airport with my madre, and am now currently waiting for my flight to take off and doing some blogging.
  2. What do you like to do when it rains? I love to snuggle under the covers and read a book or binge watch a television show.
  3. What is your most favorite blog post you’ve shared so far? I can honestly say I don’t have a favorite. I love all my travel posts, especially the recent Charleston ones. 

My nominees:

Brittany at Southern Lights Atlanta Nights

Anni at Gluecksgeist 

Maggie at Dreaming of Guatemala

Allie at Living My Full Life

Amelia at Amelia in Hull

Your Questions:

  1. How excited are you for the Summer?
  2. Do you have any Summer plans yet?
  3. Favorite Summer accessory? (as you an see I have Summer on the brain:)
