How’s the first weekend in November looking? Remember to take some time to just rest.
I got nominated for the Liebster award a while back by my blogger-friends Courtney from 1 Timothy 4:12 Girl and Emily from Fearfully Wonderfully Me. These girls have helped my blog in so many ways. They are devout Christians who are unashamed to preach the word. And hey, Emily is amazing with fashion and Courtney is also a great fiction writer. Please check their blogs out. You’d never regret it! 😀 Thank you guys for this award. It’s absolutely humbling! I’m grateful to God for this privilege! Continue reading “Another Liebster Award”→
I have been behind on the award front and I finally had to pull myself from the ‘Post-challenge stress’ After writing through April, my fingers have felt a little stiff lately. Anywho, write I must and write I shall! 😀
Thank you TJ from Studiotj for this nomination. You remain a breath of fresh air! I love your blog and you guys should totally check it out for that little positive spin you need! 😀
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
I’ve always loved writing and it just made sense to own a blog. Got inactive for some two years and finally got serious in 2014. It progressed from random rambles to a purposeful blog and it keeps getting better! 😀
Stay true to yourself. Just keep being you. Write all you can and about anything you want. For the likes and follows, they will come. Just keep being you.
Keep friendships with bloggers beyond the ‘blogosphere’. This year has been exciting for me because I’ve been chatting with some bloggers outside the blogosphere and it’s so amazing! Beyond writing, making friends is a huge plus for me! So yes, I advise you to do same.
Hope the week has been beautiful so far. Mine has had its highs and lows. One definite ‘high’ for me is the nomination by the lovely Sarah from Forever Aspiring Writer for the ‘Tag of Happiness’. She writes so beautifully and I must say, her blog is the definition of happiness! Please check it out 😀
Here is how it goes:
Some SONGS that make me happy:
Shake it off by Taylor Swift, This is the Stuff by Francesca Battistelli, Fight Song by Rachel Platten, Life in colors by One Republic and Live it Up by Group 1 Crew.
Some BOOKS that make me happy:
Do Stylebooks count? 😀 And any book with a colourful book cover.
Some MOVIES that make me happy:
Fast and Furious! And any action movie that gets me at the edge of my seat 😉 Sitcoms definitely make me happy!
Some FOODS that make me happy:
Triple decker pizza and Ice cream!! 😛
Some WORDS that make me happy:
Shopping, fashion, dance, laughter, new …a lot come to mind!
Some SCENTS that make me happy:
I’ll definitely agree with Sarah on the air after it’s freshly rained, the scents from designer perfumes…does the aroma of freshly baked bread count? 😀
Some RANDOM things that make me happy:
Dancing, riding bikes, seeing a message from that special someone 😉 taking tours/hikes
Thank you Sarah, I had fun doing this! 😀 ❤
I nominate everyone interested in this. I hope you’re as happy as I am while writing this.
What are some of the things that make you happy? Please share in the comment section 🙂
