5 Blogger Nominees I Don’t Know Well:

  2. Cassi Makeup – I love that as soon as I visit the web page you have your social media sites at the top clear for all to see and takes you right to each.

  3. Falling For Snow – Header image!! Super cuteee. Actually, I love the style of your feature images also. You should definitely stick with that for a while. I love that you’ve been blogging for quite a long time and I can see that you are growing just scanning through everything. I also want to add that I love how you included what you accept (Reviews, collaborations etc) that’s a nice touch I might consider.
  4. Basic Teen Thoughts– I think the first thing I have to say I love is the fact that you’re a teenage blog. I’m 23 years old but teenagers inspire my writing in so many ways with their experiences that I of course can reflect on and relate too. I wish I had the knowledge and courage to start a blog when I was still in high school. I also love your first post, I love how open you were just starting out:) You’r blog will do just fine!
  5. Simply Megan Joy – I love that your blog is a little bit of everything, just like mine but it still ties together nicely. I also love your about me section, Megan Joy is such a nice name and I played violin! The harp seems so beautiful to play. I hope you get your books published:) I love your Mother’s Day DIY, so cute!

Bloggers Who Have Been Doing This For A While:

  1. Clues And Reviews – I love reading your reviews! There’s been a few books you’ve reviewed that I’ve added to my list of books to read.
  2. My Booky Life – Mahriya I love your blog and what you’re doing with the Typewriter Project! I’m happy to participate. You’ve given me a great prompt/topic to write about for the first challenge and I can’t wait to see how the rest of this project unfolds.

The Mystery Blogger Award

Hey all! I’m finally getting to another award. Awards pile in one after another don’t they? No complaints, this is another reason the WordPress community is so friendly and encouraging. Today, I’m going to be doing the Mystery Blogger Award for the first time:) Special thanks to Janah from Wander Summer for nominating me. Check out her blog if you haven’t already and give a follow. Make sure to read her About The Author section, it’s so nicely written! Also a huge thank you to Okoto for creating this award.

BLOG RULES:

  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Answer the questions from the nominator.
  • Nominate 10-20 people.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice.
  • Share a link to your best post(s).

THREE THINGS ABOUT MYSELF:

For some reason it’s always hard to come up with interesting facts about yourself lol, especially if you can’t remember if you’ve already told that fact. I’ll do my best…

  1. I wrote a rhyming short story (50 parts) a couple of years ago on Facebook and Wattpad that did pretty well. Thousands of people read this story, some are even waiting for me to do an update or put out a book. It’s only a draft but the full draft is complete. It’s not as inspiring as my other short stories I’ve posted, it has crime, love, foul language and maybe a few disturbing parts. But it does tell a story people can relate to, people can relate with the characters. It doesn’t end badly:) I may share it here one day.
  2. I once got in trouble in 3rd grade for selling bubblegum to classmates lol. I only got caught because a girl got mad I wouldn’t give her any for free, and decided to steal some from my lunchbox. Didn’t she know the saying nothing in life is free? I was hustling for my 50 cents a piece😂 The teacher had to get involved to find out why she was stealing. She also got in trouble and had to give my gum back, but I know she still kept a few pieces! I knew how much I had! Lol. Funny times.
  3. In 5th grade I was a talent show host (had to audition for this, I believe there was 2-3 of us that made it) We were told to wear something nice but I was a cheerleader and also had to participate in a cheer routine for the show. I hosted in my cheerleader outfit which teachers wasn’t so happy about. Shrugs. Didn’t they know I wasn’t a celebrity and had no practice or help changing quickly?

MY BEST POSTS:

Janah’s QUESTIONS:

  1. What’s the story behind your blog name? I actually did a whole post about this when I first started my blog:) Behind The Name although many people haven’t read it because again, it’s when I first started.
  2. What’s that one song you love to sing in the shower? I don’t normally sing in the shower lol. I have before but it’s been a while so I can’t remember any of the songs.
  3. What’s the first thing you would do during a zombie apocalypse? Honestly, probably freak out??? lol gather up some weapons, food, water, safe shelter. Call loved ones to see if they are okay, tun on the news lol IDK!
  4. Name the first thing that comes to your mind when hear the word misogyny. The First thing that comes to my mind is monogamy (I guess because they look and sound similar) they obviously have 2 very different meanings though.
  5. On a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being the highest, 5 the lowest), how good are you at Internet Slang? LOL IDK! Maybe 3 lol? Try to go in between there.

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. What’s the first color you think of when you think of Summer?
  2. How would you finish this sentence? “I suddenly hear my front door open, which is strange because I live alone and I had just locked the door minutes before. When I peep around the corner I _____________”
  3. Do you like brussel sprouts?
  4. What’s your thought on a Summer fling?
  5. If you HAD to switch lives with either Kim K, Kylie Jenner, Barak Obama, or Donald Trump, who would you choose? (You can not change their personality or life, you become them)

MY NOMINEES:

I am going to nominate only five blogs for now.

I hope to see your answers, but as always take your time and don’t feel obligated.💕

The Smile Tag🙂😄

 I was tagged by the beautiful Laura from Lauzies Lifestyle to do the SMILE TAG!

Here’s how it works…

CiarraLorren, creator of The SMILE Tag, wants to see your smiles! If you are nominated for this tag (which I hope all of you are), then simply post a photo of yourself smiling! There really are no rules for this tag. You can post as many pictures with as many people as you’d like solely under the condition that you are smiling in the photo or looking back at the photo makes you smile! It’s really quite simply. If you’d like, also share the story or stories behind the photos you post to let your followers gain more of an insight of who you are and what makes you happy. Or don’t! It’s really up to you! Truthfully, it doesn’t matter how you interpret this tag, so long as you spread joy and happiness around the Internet and in doing so within your own life. Let’s all be happy and share our smiles!

My smiles:

This is a picture from the time I went to a Miley Cyrus concert with a friend. I think this was in 2014🤔 It was free since she paid for both tickets so why not?! We both had an amazing time, one of the best nights of my life and greatest memory with her. Plus Miley really knows how to party I must say. What’s so special about this picture besides that, is the fact that this was my first time wearing makeup! My friends mom did it and I loved it! But since then I’ve only worn makeup about 3 other times. Always light. It kind of makes my face feel uncomfortable and I’m not skilled at applying lol so 🤷🏽‍♀️




2014. This is me smiling, during one of those other times I wore makeup lol, it’s very light as you see. I think I only had On nude lipstick, eyeliner, and mascara.


In January of 2015 I got into a very bad car accident (this picture was a few months after) with my uncle and big cousin. We were in a small truck and I was in the middle. I thought it was going to be our last day… When I saw the van coming I had this quick calm thought “This is it. This is how my life ends and there is nothing I can do about it.” I was accepting what I knew I had no control over. The strange thing about it was that I know it was meant to happen exactly the way it did. My uncle and I was going to visit his daughter, my cousin was asleep but he wanted to go. At first I thought to let him stay sleeping but I waited for about 5 minutes and something told me to wake him up to come along. Doctors say we were lucky to be so tightly together or it would have been far worse. The van hit us on my cousins side. He actually went back to sleep during the ride so he was waking up to being hit, imagine his fear and confusion. We both suffered from serious injuries and had to be rushed to the hospital. For one, his head was leaning against the window so he had pieces of glass stuck in different places on his face, arm, and hand. I crawled out of his window, the door would not open. My nose was fractured, both eyes were swollen and black, with other lacerations and bruises on my knees, hands, and face including forehead and hairline area. I can still remember everyone around me telling me I needed to sit down because my face was covered in blood, and I literally mean covered! I felt the warmth coming down my face like thick tears but I didn’t feel any pain. I wasn’t worried about that, I jwas just angry and worried about my cousin who was laying on the ground screaming in pain. I ran to his side and asked him what hurts… He said “everything.” My uncle said I showed a lot of courage that day. I still have these scars today showing very faint now. I’m thankful we all survived. In the picture you can see the scar on the bridge of my nose where I had to get stitches. After surviving, I realized if I hadn’t survived I would have left this Earth unsatisfied with my life. It was definitely an eye opening moment. Blessed for sure💕


These last 2 are coming from a series of pictures I’ll be showing in a couple of months to share my 1 year natural hair journey!

If some of my pictures don’t show in reader on mobile, view this post on my blog site ✨

My Nominees:

I nominate anyone reading this who hasn’t done it already because all you need is some smiling pictures! Come on, join in. Show those gorgeous smiles!☺️😍


The Golden Blogger Pass!💖

It’s finally here! I’ve been working on this for about 2 weeks and I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to be an award, a challenge, a tag or what. So indecisive as usual. I was very nervous about sharing this with you all, checking it over and over to make sure it was exactly how I wanted. I guess I was being a bit of a perfectionist, and worrying about creating something many of you would like. It took me a while to come up with a name but it finally came to me so here we are, the first Golden Blogger Pass! 

Well, what is it?

Before we begin, I want to say that this is not about my favorite bloggers or what blogs I think are the best. If your blog is posted you are one of the bloggers (I only did 2) I have seen most in my notifications recently, leaving your lovely comments. I appreciate EVERYONE’S love/support❤️ but for this pass I only want to have 2-3 “nominees.”

TheGoldenBloggerPass

Creators Message/Message From Lee @GoldenPinkJournal

I created this “pass” as a way to engage with bloggers and help others find blogs they might be interested in. Now of course it can’t just be ANY blog, you can think of this like a special “invitation.” The only way to be invited is to be a frequent blogger. I didn’t want it to be exactly like the other amazing awards/tags here in the WordPress community already, but I also didn’t want it to be too different and difficult to understand. I put a lot of thought, time, and heart into this pass and it would really mean a lot to see it go far and have many bloggers participating. Please try not to pass to anyone it has already been passed to. If anyone can help me come up with a way of keeping track of this for everyone to see, please let me know.

Here are the rules:

  • Always include creators message & image
  • Thank the person you got the pass from
  • Answer the golden questions/tasks
  • Choose 2-3 bloggers to give the pass to (this person must be a frequent blogger with no less than 4 posts a month) and share link to their blogs
  • Post a screenshot of their blogs homepage. You can use mobile or desktop device. For desktop device try pressing the “Windows logo key + PrtScn/r. The file should automatically be saved to your pictures in a new folder titled “Screenshots” (if you are unable to screenshot for whatever reason, share a link to their most recent post)
  • Share link to a post of theirs that you recommend others to read. Give a brief description of that post or why you recommend that post.
  • Ask them each 1 unique question (about themselves or their blog)
  • Add “Golden Blogger Pass” to the tags when publishing

(I am going to also be answering them to start it off.  Please delete this note and my answers when you do yours. Your answers do not have to be as long as mine.)

  1. How long have you been blogging? I have been blogging since January 2017.
  2. How frequently do you post? Do you have a blogging schedule? Right now I do not have a set blogging schedule but I do post frequently. I’ve actually been posting daily lately.
  3. Have you ever been invited to anything special? Hmm, back in middle and high school, if you had perfect attendance for a certain amount of time or honor roll (grades all A’s and B’s) you’d get invited to a pizza or ice cream party. I was invited many times… I really wanted some pizza and ice cream! Lol.
  4. Would you make blogging your profession or is there something else you want to have as your career? I definitely would make blogging my profession. It’s something I really love doing, I have control over what I post, and it can help me with my growth as a writer. Some day I wish to publish my first book, or direct/produce a play/tv show.
  5. Post a link to your favorite post or the post with the most likes (of your own) and give a brief description about it: I couldn’t decide between A Writer’s Worst Enemy & Meet Izabelle so I chose them both. A Writer’s Worst Enemy is about writers block and I list almost 20 ways to take the enemy out! I’m positive you’ll find something that helps. I think this is one of my best written, well structured posts so please check it out. Meeting Izabelle, is a post where I am introducing my new cat and the story of how we got her. It had to be meant to be! You’ll have to read to know how.
  6. Tell us what type of posts you’re most likely to read/blogs you’re most likely to follow: I’m most likely to read and follow blogs that share similar interests with me. I really like inspirational posts, DIYs, Fashion, Lifestyle and many others as our blogging community is so diverse! I’ll follow any blog that shows support to my own, and has a nice clean layout with content that can capture and keep my attention.
  7. Give 1 great blogging tip/advice: Find your own voice and style and go with it! Don’t try to post what everyone else is posting, or mass follow people just to gain followers. You’re not really going to grow that way. People will notice when you have original content, and when you’re just trying to copy what’s trending at the moment. If you’re just mass following people, chances are half won’t follow back and the ones that do might not even read your posts. You need to have all those ghost followers for what reason? …(cue the crickets)

I am passing this pass to…???

Hello It’s Jo

Screenshot (2)

Living On My Own In My 20s is a post I would recommend you all reading on Jo’s blog. She gives a descriptive list of the things she has learned while living on her own, in her 20s. I Like this post and can relate to it since I recently got my own apartment for the first time, and I am 23 years old. I agree with majority of her list.

My Unique Question For You: Would you rather live in a mansion with 10 other people, or a small apartment alone?


Bea Free

Study Tips Now is the time everyone in school is testing, doing exams, and even getting ready for graduation for some. In light of that, I’ve linked Bea’s post giving great studying tips. So don’t worry if you have no clue where to begin or how to stay focused while studying because she’s got you covered!

My Unique Question For You: When did you decide to start your “Get To Know” blogger series, and how did you go about setting it up?

-I’m looking forward to seeing your responses and how far this pass can go. Take your time, and as always never feel obligated to do this. Let me know in the comments what you think about the pass and if you would be happy to accept if someone chooses you.-

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

I am doing the Sunshine Blogger Award for the 2nd time. I was nominated by Kali from Kali Borovic. Please visit her blog if you haven’t alerady, she has a nice layout and a variety of great posts. Thanks Kali for nominating me!
The rules of the award are to thank the person who nominated you [done!], answer the 11 questions, and pick ten people to answer your 11 questions. So without further ado, let’s get to the fun part!
Kali’s Questions:



1. IF YOU WERE A CHARACTER IN A BOOK, WHO WOULD IT BE? Hmm, I really have to think about this one… After thinking, I’d have to say Bella from Twilight lol (cringe worthy?) I always said she reminded me a lot of myself, mainly because of her awkwardness around people, thoughts to herself, and her strong interest in wanting to know everything mysterious.
2. WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE TO WEAR THE SAME OUTFIT FOREVER OR THE SAME MAKEUP FOREVER? The same makeup forever. If I can change and dress up often, having the same makeup won’t matter as much. I can always go with an everyday, natural look for makeup, that way any outfit will match perfect.
3. IF IT COULD ONLY BE ONE SEASON, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PICK? Well since fall is my favorite season, I’ll go with that… but I don’t know because I might get tired of the leaves and want to see those pretty spring colors. Summer might get too hot, and Winter is completely out lol.
4. COFFEE OR TEA? Tea!
5. WHAT’S YOUR DREAM PROFESSION? My dream profession would be a musician, famous poet/author similar to Maya Angelou, and actress.
6. WHAT’S SOMETHING THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU? Not many people know that I sometimes write song lyrics and sing them to myself. Do I have an awesome voice? No. But honestly it’s really not that bad.
7. IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN YOUR LIFE AND CHANGE ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Most things that happen to us shape us to be who we are. There is one thing I wish I could go back and change but it’s something I’d rather not discuss, sometimes people are removed from our lives no matter how drastic for a reason.
8. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE CLOTHING ITEM AS A KID? I had this Proud Family (Old Disney Cartoon) outfit that I thought was so cute lol. It was a shirt with a cute skirt. I also had these Power Puff Girls overalls that I really adored.
9. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CLOTHING ITEM NOW? Honestly, I’m way passed due for a shopping spree. Honestly. Right now, probably my black floral jacket. Soon enough I won’t be able to wear because it will be too hot.
10. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGERS? I definitely can not pick any favorites, there are so many!

11. IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR NAME, WHAT WOULD YOU PICK? I couldn’t imagine my name being anything else, but probably a name beginning with the letter A or another short L name.

My Questions:

  1. What were you doing before this post?
  2. What did you have for breakfast this morning?
  3. What are 3 of your favorite stores to shop at?
  4. What’s the last song you listened to?
  5. What’s the last show or movie you watched?
  6. What is one thing you would tell your younger self not to do?
  7. Quick! Say something out loud to yourself, it can be a word or phrase, it can be anything. What did you say?
  8. Would you go sky diving for $10,000?
  9. Would you rather have no fall & summer for 50 years, or no rain for 50 years?
  10. Do you have children? How many? If you don’t, do you want children someday? How many?
  11. What do you enjoy most about WordPress?

I nominate…

I really hate to “cheat” or not always follow all the rules but as I’ve said, I really prefer to nominate those who have not been awarded yet. I often see the same bloggers rewarded for the same awards/tags. I’m still searching for new blogs to follow so I can nominate new people so please understand why I have not nominated anyone specific these last two awards I’ve received. Anyone who has not done this award and would like to, please feel free and not ashamed or embarrassed just because your name isn’t here. I have chosen YOU✨
