Let’s Share some Sunshine

A Sunshine Award for Live Colorfull

Today I’m doing something a little bit different than the usual Q&A Monday. I recently received the lovely Sunshine Award from my friend Carmen from ShugarLove and I’m also answering her questions. I feel a bit bad because I didn’t post this earlier, but i was a bit distracted with all the Halloween and Day of the Dead celebrations for the past few days.

We are finally free of monsters and scary things, and can look forward to Christmas lights, roaring fires and the smell of pine cones. It looks like the Holiday spirit is taking over our city, what about yours? Anyway, since the days are getting colder and shorter some sunshine sounds perfect to survive the cold days.

The rules of the award is to answer some questions about you and your blog and then nominate 10 new bloggers and ask them some questions as well. I hope you enjoy my answers and you can get to know me a little better and find other amazing bloggers around.

Here we go.

Sunshine award for Live Colorful

(1) What is your favorite childhood memory?

I guess it would be me fighting with my cousins about how ninja turtles was pronounced. I said Ninyas, they said ninhas. Funny, we were both wrong.

(2) What fashion accessory can you not live without?

Earrings. Really, I cannot leave the house without them.

(3) What junk food can you never live without?

French Fries. I don’t buy them that often because if I have them in front of me I will eat them all in a second.

(4) What is your favorite movie of all time?

I love The Lord of the Rings series, I’m obsessed with the ents fighting! But when I want to feel uplifted I adore watching The Devil Wears Prada, it just makes me happy.

(5) What is one thing that surprises you about blogging?

When you look through old posts and realize how much you and your life have changed through the process. You always learn and discover something new blogging that helps you grow as a person.

(6) What inspired you to become a blogger?

I guess it was finding an article about a designer I love. I didn’t know about her before but I was hooked when I saw her vibrant and happy product pictures in the magazine. Then I went to the computer and found her blog, it amazed me seeing her able to share and connect with others that love what she does. I was inspired.

(7) What is one thing you love about yourself?

I guess that I’m an easy ongoing person. I like making the best of any situation and I try my best to be happy and help others.

(8) Three words that describe your personality.

Creative, dreamer, friendly.

(9) Scary movies: Yay or Nay? Why?

Nay. I’m the weakest person on earth when we talk about scary movies.

(10) What do you do to stay fit?

My ideal workout has to have some kind of dancing involved but I also love the gym and walking in the afternoon with my dog Kyra. I try to eat the healthiest I can and have a light dinner.

I award the following sweet bloggers some Sunshine!

    Elba, we have so much in common! I knew it! My mom told me when I was younger that I couldn’t leave the house without earrings. That is why till this day I feel naked if I go out without earrings. Super funny! Oh, and working out has to involve dance because then it feels like torture, right? That is why I am obsessed with Zumba. It doesn’t feel like I am exercising, but instead like the time of my life!

    Thanks for sharing about yourself! You deserve the award. I love, love, love reading your blog. It’s so colorful, bright, happy and inspiring!

    Dearest Elba, first I want to thank you so much for your super kind words and nominating me! I don´t know how I deserve this <3

    And reading your answers confirm me that you are such a lovely, kind and wonderful person! And it sounds like as we have many in common, e. g. I also don´t watch scary movies, I make daily a walk (not with my dog but with my husband) and I try to eat healthy 🙂

    And I´m sure you described yourself perfect: friendly. creative and so nice that you are a dreamer <3

    Stay as you are!
