I am very grateful and honored that Alex from Monster Misa nominated me for the Sunshine Award as one of her favorite bloggers. The main idea of the Sunshine Award is to nominate fellow bloggers that brighten your day with their posts.
As you know, I haven't been blogging very long. When I first started I was so afraid that I was the only one reading it lol! But not only are people visiting my blog, they actually like it! So this shout out really means a lot! I also have to say that everyone in the blogger-sphere has been very kind and supportive.
I guess since Alex nominated me, I can't nominate her. But, definitely check out her blog, it is a great mix of fashion and lifestyle, and even delicious recipes!
Include the award logo in your post.
Link to the person who nominated you... Monster Misa!
