I’ve been nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award!

Today, while checking my emails (like I do every morning), I came across an email from a lady named Tee. ” … I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award…” she said and I started shaking while reading this. I was so shocked that I had to pinch myself to see if it’s real!

In case you’re wondering, bloggers who have received the Sunshine Blogger Award nominate other bloggers who are creative, who inspire and bring the sunshine into the lives of their readers.


This award is a huge deal to me. As I consider myself a newbie in the blogging world (4 months old!), it’s so amazing to see that my blog is actually recognized. It makes me feel even more “hungry” for what I do!

Before we begin, I want to thank Tee from TeeShares, a lovely lady who liked my blog and nominated me for this award. I feel so honored and ready to answer her questions!

Tee’s questions

  1. What made you start your blog?

    I was unemployed, and I was looking for business options to do something for myself. That’s when I discovered blogging through Pinterest and decided to try it out. (and I’m so glad I did!)

  2. What’s your most favorite post you’ve written?

    I really like all of my posts, but if I have to choose one of them I think this would be the “20 Valuable Conversations that will improve your relationship” because it was one of my first posts, I tried it out in my relationship and it was really fun, and from the comments I realized that I can actually help people.

  3. What are your top 3 hobbies?

    Well, I love to sing and play the piano (I guess this counts as one!), reading other blogs and playing basketball with my brothers!

  4. If you were to name one person as your favorite person, who would they be AND WHY?

    I have many favorite persons! From the people I know personally, that would be my boyfriend John. He is such a wonderful person, so passionate about life, hardworking, supportive and the best problem-solver I know! From the online people, that would be a blogger called Helene Sula, from Heleneinbetween. She totally changed the blogging game for me, she’s overflowing with good vibes, and for me, she’s totally fearless.

  5. What’s your favorite color?

    PINK! Pastel pink actually. I totally love this color. I think it’s really cute and totally matches my personality!

  6. If you were to eat one food item for the rest of your life, what would that be?

    Ice cream! Without any doubt. Chocolate or Vanilla, I don’t mind, it just has to be ice cream!

  7. Who did you look up to growing up, and why?

    Fun thing is that I don’t think I grew up looking up to someone. I was a curious child, and I still am. I wanted to be who I wanted to be. Of course, I was getting ideas from my family, TV, books, but never wanted to be like someone. I wanted to be me!

  8. What’s your biggest wish in life?

    I wish to live a happy life. That’s my biggest wish, and even if it’s too generic, this is what I want. To be happy 24/7 and I’m trying to work on it every single day.

  9. Do you believe in love at first sight?

    Totally YES! I’ve had this with John. I knew when his eyes met mine, that this guy is my special someone. Uhh, you just gave me the idea to write about it!

  10. What are you most proud of in your life?

    I’m proud of who I am. Who I became actually. Even though I had some family issues growing up and went through depression, I’m standing here strong, with a purpose and more passionate about life than ever! I don’t wanna sound selfish, but I’ve been working with myself a lot the past year, and I’m really proud of the results!

  11. What’s been your favorite holiday destination so far?

    Uh, I can’t really answer that. My last holidays were when I was 12 years old with my family, and I don’t remember much of it. Maybe we can say that was my favorite? If you’re okay with it, then it was on an island called Skiathos here in Greece.


It’s time for me to nominate!

This feels so good! I chose all these lovely ladies, one by one, because I totally believe that they bring the Sunshine through their blogs. So each one of them deserves their nominations more than anything!
