Versatile Blogger Award!!! :)


The lovely Pam at Yours Truly, Pam gave me an award!!! Pam is relatively new to the blogging world, but she has a wonderful blog and has already managed to find her 'blogging voice' so go and give her a visit :) Thank you Pam!! :)

The rules for these awards are: 
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered new bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received the award(s)

OK, so 7 things about me...

1. I am super afraid of the cold, even though I was born in Colorado.
2. I'm a mixed chick. My dad is from the United Arab Emirates (where I live) and my mom is from the United States. Ethnically (is that the right word?) though, my ancestry is Kenyan on my dad's side and Japanese on my mom's.
3. I'm asthmatic, a bummer because so many things (including flowers!) irritate my chest :(
4. I'm a super huge fan of Joan Jett (nearly obsessed), and credit her with turning me into a 'rock chick' when I was like 12.
5. I'm the oldest grandchild on both sides of my family. No pressure to produce the first great-grandkids or anything! haha
6. I used the money from my first ever paying job (an internship with my dad) to get my hair dyed BRIGHT red
7. My favorite movie when I was little was Sleeping Beauty. I used to call it Sleeping Booty. My parents still make fun of me for that!

And here are the blogs that I'd like to pass the award on to!

I know a lot of people think these awards are kind of pointless, but I think they're a great way to give newer blogs a little bit of exposure and encouragement. These ladies work really hard on their blogs and it does show, so congratulations! I think it's great that we 'little ones' can support each other like this :) And I'm sorry if I missed anyone, but there are so many of you that I love! Plus, this was done in a hurry because I'm running late for a workout class haha I'm going to have to message you guys individually when I get home, so until then, mwahs and mwahs! :) (sorry for sounding a bit like I'm accepting an Oscar! Curse you, awards season!!!)

I realize that it might be difficult to find 15 bloggers to give the award to. I just really like you guys' blogs and wanted to let you know! So, I have no idea if this is allowed or not (are there rules on stuff like this? I have no clue!) but it doesn't really matter to me if you award 1 blog or 15 blogs. It's great if you can find 15 blogs to award, but if not, I'd still like to find out 7 things about you so get posting!! :)


  1. Congrats again! :)

    How do you manage to find so many new blogs? I try and fail! That's why I couldn't post the award you gave me because I don't even know 3 let alone 15 new blogs like you do! Most of the ones I read regularly tend to be long established blogs.

    Kenyan and Japanese is such a cool ethnicity to have and it explains why I couldn't figure out your ethnicity :)

    Yay for Disney cartoons! My favourite childhood movie was Beauty and the Beast or should I say Booty and the Beast ;)

  2. Aww! Thank you! :)
    I have a lot of time on my hands hehe! Actually, I usually try and follow all of my followers and people who leave comments, and a lot of them are newer bloggers. And then sometimes I get all nosy and click on other people's followers, or click on links and stuff. I love reading blogs so I like to make sure I have lots to follow hehe :) Yeah, I think 'where are you from?' is probably the first question I get like 90% of the time! haha! and yes, yay for Disney cartoons!! :D

  3. Thank you so much!
