Two in One Blog Awards!

I am always so honored whenever I receive a blog award. And even though sometimes I don't get to post about it right away, please believe me, I am thrilled!!! to know that some of you enjoy reading my blog. I am so excited to have received two blog awards, so I will be covering them both in one post. 

First I want to thank the lovely Guru Uru over at the amazing food blog: Go Bake Yourself.  And the lovely and vivacious Ms Foodie Fash who blogs about food, fashion and all things fabulous over at MsFoodieFash. What I love about these awards is the opportunity to connect and learn more about other bloggers. Some of you I am fortunate enough to have established friendships with offline and others I know we will when I meet you in person:-)

I will start things off with the addictive blog award and give a big thank you to Guru Uru the mastermind behind the delicious food blog Go Bake Yourself for presenting me with the award. The rules of this award are:

  • Thank the person awarding you
  • Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started
  • Paste the blog award on your page
  • Nominate 10 other blogs you think are deserving of the award
I started my blog as an outlet for my creativity. I  love to write and wanted to write about the things I loved and be creative in a way that I couldn't on my day job. This blog has turned into a lot more than just a creative outlet, it has brought me some amazing friends and the opportunity to inspire and be inspired by all of you. And now I nominate these lovely bloggers for the addictive blog award:

Budget Chic
Fashion Du Jour
Mrs. Pancakes
JAdore Fashion
Yummy Mummy
Beatrice Clay 

Frannie Pantz
Scarberian Fashion Lover 
Punctuation Mark 

Congratulations Lovelies! 

And now for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks Again Ms. Foodie Fash!

The rules for the versatile blogger award are:

1. Nominate 15 bloggers who are relatively new to blogging.
2. Let the nominated bloggers know that they have been nominated.

3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.

4. Thank the blogger who has nominated you.

5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your post.

I would like to thank the always humourous, effervescent and fabulous Ms. Foodie Fash for nominating me for the Versatile blogger award. My 7 random facts are:

1. I hate raisins. Don't give me anything with a raisin in it or anything in the raisin family

2. I love to travel and am always ready to pack my bags and go on a trip

3. According to a test to discover my purpose, hospitality, exhortation, mercy and compassion are some of my gifts

4. I have a serious fixation on candy that has a sweet and sour taste or is extremely fruity like sour patch kids, or jelly bellies

5. I do nerdy things like read the dictionary. I am a writer, so I like big words, LOL

6. I think Siracha tastes good on everything

7. Shawshank Redemption, Love Jones, Like Water for Chocolate and Imitation of life are some of my favorite movies

And here is a bonus fact, I love going to events where I can meet interesting people. Food Festivals, outdoor concerts, art gallery openings and anywhere else where there is some fun and excitement:-)

And now I nominate these remarkable bloggers:

Joy and Sunshine
Diary of a Chic Mommy

Congratulations! All of you are amazing!

Blog awards are a great way to connect and be introduced to other bloggers.

I love to travel as well. The only reason I took an international job is travel. Now I'm close to everything and can travel cheaply.

And Like Water for Chocolate too, and agree that siracha tastes good on everything!
Have a great weekend, LV.

As I was reading random seven things about you, I realized how much we have in common. I was like wow. Anywho, thanks for the nomination and I am working on that post as we speak.
