  1. Write a post in which you thank the blogger for nominating them and link back to their blog.
  2. Display the award/post rules.
  3. Answer the eleven questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  4. Nominate eleven other blogs and notify them accordingly.
  5. Give your nominees eleven, original, questions to answer.
  6. Post the Sunshine Blogger Award logo within your post.*
    *For this I made my own award logo as well as shared the award logo from my nominator’s post.

This second nomination comes from Britt at Alternatively Speaking. This lady is incredible and I love how she takes pride in her alternative style. She also really knows how to rock some fun colored hair!sunshine-blogger-award

11 Questions Asked by Alternatively Speaking

1. If you had the opportunity to relocate to the place of your favorite movie or television show (regardless of how realistic or unrealistic it may be) where would you live?

I would totally relocate to Hobbiton (Lord of the Rings)

2. If you were told you could only drink one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Realistically, I’d want to say water because we can’t live without it, haha. But I would say coffee, since coffee is life!

3. How would you describe your perfect day?

Waking up to an overcast and rainy day. Having a good cup of coffee and spending the day reading and writing to the sound of the rain.

4. What is your favorite thing about your blog?

That I didn’t limit myself to a specific niche. When I had done that in the past, I felt like it limited my creativity and I got bored of writing posts for the blog within a couple months.

5. What would be your dream vacation?

Exploring Ireland! See: My Travel Bucket List: Outside the U.S.

6. If I handed you a million dollars today and said it was yours BUT you had to spend it in 30 minutes or I take it back, how would you spend it?

I would jump online to find a house as quick as possible! Then maybe order some pizzas with the leftover money.

7. How would you describe your style?

T-shirt and jeans type of gal. My hair is kind of punky…maybe I would call my overall style “alternative” 😉

8. Do you have any tattoos or piercings? If so, what do you have? If not, is there anything you would like to get?

I’m currently gauging my ears and I have my conch pierced.

I have five tattoos: A star design on my lower back, an owl, a peacock feather, and a pumpkin on my forearm, and a pirate ship sailing in a teacup on my bicep (which is in progress)

9. Who is your greatest role model in life, and why?

My Aunt. She probably doesn’t know it but she constantly inspires me and she is truly my number one supporter!

10. How do you pull yourself out of a rut when you’re struggling with writer’s block?

I go back and read things I wrote in the past, or even read others work to help get the creative juices flowing.

11. What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. My grandma used to read it to my as a young child and I just loved everything about it. I have continued to read it every few years as an adult as well.
