Sunshine Bloggers Award Nominee

My loves;

I am super excited to accept the nomination for the Sunshine Bloggers Award. TSW was nominated by Amber over at Basically, Britain and I’m super excited! Thanks girl!

The Sunshine Bloggers Award is similar to the Liebester Award, and while I’ve done a lot of research, I couldn’t find much. It seems to be an award smaller bloggers put together to get other small bloggers recognition, and we all have to stick together in this blogging world.

1. When and why did you start your blog?

I started TSW as an outlet to speak on things in my life that I felt silenced about. Therapeutic writing, in a sense.

2. Tell us a story from your first love.

My first love – we used to eat at this place called “Ice Cream Factory”. I’d always order burgers and fries and wondered why a burger shop was called an ice cream factory. I don’t think we ever got ice cream lol.

3. What is your dream house? Tell us the details.

My dream house would be somewhere in the cut. 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Big privacy fence, in ground pool and jacuzzi. Bay windows. Omg, I could go on forever.

4. How did you settle on the niche or aesthetic of your blog?
It’s easier to write about what you know. I know about parenting, cooking, music, basically lifestyle things. I mean, would you read a fashion blog from someone who only knows cooking?

5. What is your college Alma Mater, your degree, and your career? (If you do not have any of those, talk about your job/dream job)

UMUC, Business Administration/ Healthcare management. I would like to open my own healthcare clinic built truly on compassion. Too often have I worked with people who are chasing a check and not there for the good of helping heal people. I would love to help reshape how healthcare workers are looked.

6. What is your passion? The one activity that you eat, sleep, and breathe.

Writing and music.

7. Share your favorite recipe.

God I have so many.

8. What TV shows are you watching right now or what do you binge on Netflix?

– none at the moment.

9. Do you have a family/relationship/kids/fur babies? Tell us about them!

My minions are 6 & 9. They are my everything.

10. What are the first 3 things you would grab from a house fire?

kids. Phone. car keys.

11. What are the top 5 most played songs on your playlists?

Freakin -Lyrica Anderson

Sorry – Joella DeVille

Unforgettable – French Montana

Avenue – H.E.R

Soul Glitch – Tinashae
