To Sparkle Punch...

That is the question

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!


Last month, I was nominated by Ashley at Peaceful Simple Life for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award, and I've finally gotten around to writing about it! Ashley is a blogging kindred spirit. She is one of the sweetest, most supportive people I've met through blogging, and you all should check out her blog for reflections on minimalism, fashion, gratitude, and family life!


Here are the rules for the Sisterhood of World Bloggers Award:

-Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog.
-Answer the 10 questions provided by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 10-12 bloggers with links to each blog.
-Ask your nominees 10 questions.
-Include the logo somewhere in your post.

Here are Ashley's 10 questions to me:

1.)  What is your favourite beauty tip?

At my first Deva Curl haircut, I learned that normal towels can really rough up your 'do! The hairdresser advised me to dry my hair with microfiber towels or old t-shirts instead. I haven't noticed a huge change, but I feel like the microfiber towels definitely dry my enormous mane faster!

2.)  What is your ideal Saturday?

One where I don't feel anxious about having free time! :)

3.)  Who would you take with you if you were a contestant on "The Amazing Race"?

I've never seen The Amazing Race so I literally have no idea, LOL!!

4.)  If you could have any "superpower", what would it be?

Teleportation, so I wouldn't have to drive :) And also so I wouldn't have to spend hours flying places--I just be there immediately! (And not have to deal with the airport, ugh!) I could use the "spin in circles" teleport method of Earthbound! :D

5.)  If you could rid the world of one fashion trend, which trend would you choose?

HIGH-LOW HEMS. They have bugged me for awhile, can you tell?! haha They are the mullet of dresses!

I mean, this whole outfit is outta control...

6.)  Do prefer cooking or baking? (Or neither?)

I used to bake a lot, but now I'm lazy and avoid both, so neither!

7.)  What is your favourite junk food?

Lately, it's been this weird party mix I found at the Rite Aid! In terms of candy, though, Reese's Peanut Butter trees, pumpkins, eggs... Any Reese's variety with maximum pb content!

8.)  What is your favourite song to belt out in the car?

I might have mentioned this in an exposure therapy post, but I channel my driving anxiety into singing! And the more dramatic, the better! So Meatloaf's "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" and "Let It Go" from Frozen are at the top of the list at the moment.

This is pretty much my face while driving. It's no surprise that I gave myself tendinitis from clutching the wheel!

9.)  What is your biggest pet peeve at the grocery store?

Going to the grocery store at all? haha Back when I lived on my own, I would try to buy as much as possible at the CVS, just to avoid going to the grocery store!

10.)  What motivated you to start blogging?

In 2014, I was wrapping up Jen Sincero's online Badass Bootcamp, and she was pretty adamant that writers have at least a blog to their name. This came about a year after I went inpatient and started that whole journey to heal from major depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. I was also drawn to the idea of having a creative outlet that could potentially help others. I hadn't told many people about inpatient etc. in real life, so the blog was quite a change!


Ok. so that's that! Now I nominate some of my favorite bloggers: Mattie of Northwest Native, Katie of A Cup of Tea, Nicole of Writes Like a Girl, Nicole of Diary of Nicole Alicia, Tif of Bright on a Budget, Kat of Lemonade Linings, Mica of Away from the Blue, Katie of Style on Target, Cassie of The Minuteglass, Della of Della Devoted. I do know that I'm late to the game, so I'm sorry if you guys were already nominated!!

Here are my 10 questions for you gals, if you want in!

  1. What was the first concert you went to?
  2. What is your favorite Disney movie?
  3. What is the best place you've ever traveled to?
  4. Which did you like more, high school or college?
  5. What is a quote that inspires you?
  6. What was your high school yearbook quote?
  7. What is your favorite lip product?
  8. What is your go-to clothing "uniform"?
  9. How embarrassing was your AIM screenname or your Myspace, on a scale of 1-10?
  10. How did you celebrate your 21st birthday?
