My nominations are piling up again so I thought I’d throw in an award post tonight. I really appreciate the nominations and I enjoy answering the questions others have for me so, I try my best to respond to each and every one. Oddly, I was nominated for four Sunshine Awards in a row before I was nominated for a differently named award. I’m going to combine all four of those Sunshine Awards in this one post.

First of all, I want to thank…

Keira at Method To My Melody — She’s an ambitious dental student with deep thoughts and amazing photography; we are so lucky that she shares with us on her blog from time to time.

Anthony at Today’s Perfect Moment — A kind gentleman who loves to bike. He’s able to find the ‘perfect moment‘ in every day and he shares those moments with us on his blog. His posts never fail to make me smile.

Nava at Neviews — Nava reviews all kinds of beauty products and sub boxes in quick yet detailed posts with the perfect emojis. Her posts are fun and easy to read. She’s also so sweet and super supportive.

Chloe at Little Mayfly — Chloe has a cute blog with a little bit of everything for everyone. She talks fashion, travel, lifestyle, mental illness, beauty, and more.

There are always rules for these things so, here they are:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you in the post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 8-11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo on your post and/or in your blog.

*Brace yourself, there are a lot of questions and answers down below.*

Keira’s Questions

Would you rather go to the zoo, library, or art museum?
I am not a fan of zoos but, I am in love with both libraries and museums. How can I pick just one? I guess if I was on a vacation somewhere though, I’d pick an art museum.

When’s the last time you went dancing?
Dancing is my job so, as I’m typing this… the last time I went to work was last night.

What do you love about your hometown?
The unique restaurants and all of the festivals and fairs. If you didn’t know my hometown is St. Paul, Minnesota.

How have you changed in the last decade?
I think everyone changes, everyday. In a whole a decade? I couldn’t even begin to list all of the changes I’ve gone through.

What’s on your bucket list?
I’ve actually never written a bucket list except for my Summer Bucket List I wrote for my June 2018 Bloggers Collab.

Who has served as your role model?
There isn’t really one single person I look up to.

What past jobs have you had? And what do you do now?
My first job was fast food, my second was a grocery store (stocking and cashiering), I’ve also worked at an ice cream shop, as a waitress, and in a peepshow. Currently, I’m an exotic dancer.

Where’s your favorite place to eat lunch?
I only eat dinner but, I guess if I had the time and appetite for lunch I’d go to Karved, Bronze Cafe, or SkinnyFATS.

How do you act when you’re angry?

What’s your perfect Sunday?
Going out to eat good food at a nice restaurant with boyfriend then, coming home and lounging about – writing and reading blogs, watching tv or movies, reading novels, and smoking a blunt every hour or so.

What have you learned this week?
I can’t go a whole month without drinking alcohol.

Anthony’s Questions

What inspired you to start blogging?
A 30 Day Challenge I saw on Pinterest one day. I feel like I’ve answered this question so many times. 😛

What would you like your blog to do for you?
I love my blog because I can share my never-ending thoughts whenever I want. It already does so much for me. What more can I ask of it?

Which post are you most proud of?
I like all of my posts but, I’m most proud of my Fetishes post because even I have fun reading it over and over again. It’s so dirty.

If you could host a dinner party (and you didn’t have to cook and your liquor cabinet was completely stocked) which famous people would you like to attend and what would you serve?
I’ve written a blog post for this: 10 celebrities I’d invite to my dinner party.

What is the last really good book you read?
The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings

What do you collect (because I know everybody collects something)?
Hmm… I’m trying to start a collection of playbooks and ticket stubs. Also, photobooth photo strips.

How did you help someone last?
I informed this lady which Uber pickup stop she was at.

What one ingredient is crucial to a good sandwich?

Who has inspired you the most?
I can’t think of someone as a ‘role model’ nor as an ‘inspiration’ to me.

What is one thing you do better than anyone you know?
Lap dances 😉

What is one thing you would like to learn how to do?

What TV show do you wish they would bring back with the original cast?
I’m not that big a fan of the reboots. I think there should be new casts in new shows.

Nava’s Questions

If you could describe your blog in one sentence, what would it be?
I don’t know… maybe: personal.

What attracted you to blogging?
I did a 30 Day Challenge I found on Pinterest and found such fun, loving bloggers in the community that made me want to stick around so I kept doing more and more challenges. I eventually started coming up with my own ideas and now I make ‘schedules’ for my blog. I love the organization I have with my blog– everything else in my life is a MESS. I just love writing and reading blogs. It’s my favorite hobby.

What is your favorite social media platform?
Does WordPress count? I feel like it doesn’t but, I really could do without the other social medias.

What is your favorite place to visit and why?
My bed because it’s so comfy and snuggly.

What product/item would your seriously stockpile if you found they weren’t going to sell any anymore?
Probably Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation w/ SPF 15 in Tan Honey.

Which TV or film character would you say is most like your personality and why?
Jessica from Fresh Off The Boat, lol… everything she does and says makes me shout “that’s so me!

Whose advice do you always listen to?
My boyfriend’s. But, not always.

What food do you crave most often?

If you could switch places with someone for a day (real or fictional, dead or alive) who would it be and why?
I answered this already in my Q&A; I chose Kim Kardashian but now, I’m gonna choose a fictional character since I got older this month… I’d choose Peter Pan. I also once wrote a post about how I’d like to be Guy Fieri… I’d still like that.

Which animal do you think you are most like?
A pig… I love food and I’m super lazy. The Chinese zodiac even agrees.

What piece of advice would you give to someone who has just started blogging?
Write about what YOU want. Support other bloggers genuinely.

Chloe’s Questions

What are your blogging goals?
Just to keep writing and to continue coming up with fun topics to keep my readers and myself entertained.

Favorite color?

What one bit of advice would you give your 13 year old self?
Don’t date him. Please, get good grades in High School.

What would you call your style?
My own, I guess?

Do you have any pets?
Yes, 3 cats. Two boys and one girl.

What is your ‘can’t live without’ item?
My cell phone orrr maybe my Carmex.

What is your favorite kind of blog post to write?
My Journal Entries.

Favorite song at the moment?
I don’t know, probably something on the radio by G-Eazy, lol.

Have you ever thought about writing a book? If so, what about?
I’ve got a whole list of ideas but… writing a whole book seems way out of my league.

What’s your dream job?
A magazine editor or celeb interviewer, successful author, strip club owner, food critic, or movie critic.

Your favorite picture?
I can’t choose one single favorite picture, that’s way too difficult. I’d remember another picture that I like better so I won’t answer this one, sorry! 😛

  1. I had no idea you were an exotic dancer!! I’m really intrigued by that. Have you done a post about it?

    And 🤩🤩🤩 thank you again for nominating me. I always want to renominate you when I answer questions since I do it based off who I’ve interacted with the most recently! I think it’s safe to say you’re like my official blog bestie 😁 and you’re the 2nd person I’ve ever known from Minnesota!

    1. Lol oh you didn’t?! Well, I’m glad you could learn something new about me through one of these awards! That’s one of the reasons why I love ’em. 🙂 Not to be annoying & link you but I have a category called “stripper stories”: – you’ll find quite a few posts about my job there!

      & you are so welcome for the nomination! I always love your posts– your writing is so fun & I always find myself nodding my head like “yesss, girl”! lol. Hey, feel free to renominate me because it’s always fun answering new questions. ;D I don’t know if that’s considered cheating or not but I’ve been tempted to do it once or twice, too haha. You’re one of my blog besties, too!!! ❤ & Minnesotans usually stay in MN so it's not that surprising you've not known too many of us lol!!

      1. Hey I don’t mind the links at all! I can’t wait to check them out. And aw thanks! I’m glad you enjoy my writing, same here. Especially your food and TV show posts! And hey I won’t tell if you don’t tell that I renominated you 🤣 and that would probably explain why I don’t meet many. Oddly I have seen the license plates from there on the road more and I always think man they are a long way from home lol

        1. Hope you enjoy those posts. 😉 ❤ I do see a lot of the MN license plates here, too. I always think the same! I guess they're all about them road trips. My dad sure loves them. Me? Not so much LOL.

    1. I can say firsthand, she is usually one of the first people to like or comment and I post fairly frequently. I don’t know if it’s the luck of the shuffle or what 😁

      1. ❤ ❤ I honestly only follow a little over 100 people so I'm able to read nearly every post on my reader. Not to be mean but, I don't like to follow those I'm uninterested in or like, I don't find their writing style readable to me. I don't want to clog up my reader… that's how I'm able to see the posts I DO want to read (like yours) right away. 🙂 ❤

        1. I’m the same way and yet some how only the same dozen or so pop up consistently. Usually I have to go search for people, luckily that’s not the case for you, but maybe it’s because you post more regularly. Either way I’m happy you’re on my feed 💜

          Liked by 1 person

    2. Thank you 🙂 I spend many hours reading others’ blogs! Mostly everyday I spend at the very least 2 hours. If I have a lot of time to spend on engorging posts, like on a day off, it could be up to 4+ hours. It never seems like that long to me – I’m always surprised to see how fast the time flies by!

  2. Wow so many questions and answers indeed. Congrats on getting nominated on four of them!! And I was so pleased with myself with knowing several answers to their questions, like the fact that you’re a dancer, that you have pets, and that you like sushi and don’t care for zoos. Lol. And oh, that you’re from Minnesota. But up until now, I didn’t know exactly where from 🤣😉

    1. It was so weird that they were all consecutively Sunshine Awards!! I didn’t want to smoosh so many Q&A’s into one but, I felt the need to haha. I’m sorry though it must have been such a bore for you to read through the answers you already knew!! Thank you for even taking the time to do so! I don’t even know what to say… you are just so sweet & I can’t even believe you would remember all of those things about me. ❤ ❤ You are lucky we are not right next to each other because I have the strongest urge to pull you into the tightest hug right now!!!!

      1. Lol usually a circle of bloggers nominate one another without knowing, it used to happen a lot when I used to do awards too lol.
        And no, no worries, I was just like “I knew that, and that” 🤣
        Well that’s nice of you! Lol I WILL* go to Vegas someday! Then we can hang out for a bit and maybe even have a girls night out 😉
