Shine Shine!!

I’ve been a lazy blogger, I hope y’all didn’t notice. *crickets*

I’m very grateful to Ms. Cherese of Afrophire, and Zeena of LifeofThecollegeGraduate for nominating me on their blogs for the Sunshine and Shine On Awards respectively! Zeena is a fashion & lifestyle blogger, and Cherese blogs about hair, food, DIY, travel and more importantly, living on the sunny positive side of life 🙂 Thanks a lot ladies, this means a lot to me! I’ve been really lazy about blogging lately, I’m so sorry I couldn’t get to this sooner. Thank you 🙂 🙂

The terms of acceptance for both awards are pretty similar, so I thought I’d just do them together.

Here are the rules to the Sunshine Award:

  • Use the logo above in the post.
  • Link to whoever nominated you.
  • Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
  • Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”

Now, here are the rules for the Shine On Award:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Show appreciation by acknowledging the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
  • Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and happily pass on this award, making sure to link their blog into your post.
  • Contact your chosen bloggers and let them know.
