I’m so honored to announce that J9 STYLE has been awarded the Sunshine Award. This an award given by fellow bloggers, so I am truly humbled to be awarded by one of my all-time favorite blogs H&K Style Journey! This mother/daughter fashion blog is truly an inspiration and I enjoy reading it daily.
The Sunshine Blogger Award Rules are:
1. Include the award logo in a post and/or on your blog sidebar.
2. Link the blogger who nominated you.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4. Nominate 10 other fabulous bloggers and ask them ten questions.
5. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blog, letting them know about the award.
Here are the questions H&K Style Journey asked me:
1. Why did you start blogging? Who and what inspires you?
I started J9 STYLE as a creative outlet. I love to write and I adore fashion and beauty. I combined my two passions to inspire other women to be and look their best and encourage them to “channel their inner fabulous”. I am inspired by other fashion bloggers as well as music.
2. If you could have one power what would it be (invisibility or flying)? Why?
I would have the power to heal others both with physical and mental ailments. Health and love are the two most important things in life. I can spread love, but it would be a gift to also spread health.
3. What did you want to be when you grew up? What are you doing now?
Growing up, I wanted to be an award-winning actress, then write and direct my own movies as well as be a published author. Currently, I work in marketing for an entertainment company and I manage and write a style blog. I came close, right?
4. Chocolate or vanilla?
5. If you had to choose only one type of make up with you on a deserted island, what would it be (lipgloss, mascara, etc.)?
If I HAD to choose only one type of makeup it would be concealer. Genetics gave me constant dark circles under my eyes.
6. Favorite book or author?
This is really tough. I can’t possibly pick one. I am a sucker for all British literature too. I would say my favorite authors are: J.K. Rowling, Philippa Gregory, Jane Austen, L.M. Montgomery, Betty Smith, Emily Bronte, Meg Cabot, and Suzanne Collins. My favorite book is probably A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
7. What is your favorite holiday and why?
I love Halloween! It’s a time when everyone throws their guard down, dresses up and acts silly. I also love to see how creative people get with their costumes. And plus, there’s candy!
8. Cooking or baking? What’s your best recipe?
To tell you the truth, I don’t do much of either. I love to cook, but don’t have too much time for it. When I do cook, I love to make my mother’s tomato sauce with meatballs.
9. What is an accomplishment you are most proud of in your life?
I was the first person in my family to graduate college. That was a big deal for me and four years of hard work. When I finish grad school (hopefully soon), that will be my biggest accomplishment.
10. Cats or dogs?
Dogs. I’m allergic to cats. Just thinking about them makes me sneeze!
Here are the ten blogs that I nominate (in no particular order). There are so many great blogs out there, so this was tough!
My ten questions for the nominees:
1. Why did you start blogging?
2. Who/What inspires you?
3. What is your favorite outfit of all time?
4. Who do you wear when you’re feeling not so fabulous?
5. How do you fit blogging into your life?
6. What’s one place you’d love to travel to?
7. What’s your favorite color?
8. What is your favorite book/who is your favorite author?
9. Who is your favorite designer?
10. Where do you mostly shop for clothes?
Thank you again H&K Style Journey! It means oh so much!
