The Sunshine Blogger Award is centered around encouraging positivity and inspiration within the blogging community.  Thank you so much to Jamie Lee Jenkins for nominating me to take part in the Sunshine blogger award!  Check out her blog it is beautiful!

As it is voted for by other bloggers, there are a few rules that you have to adhere to.  Part of the rules is to mention the rules so… Please see below!

RULES:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog, so others can find them
  • Answer the 11 questions which the blogger who nominated you asked
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 different questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post and/or on your blog site

Here are my answers to Jamie’s questions!

1. Who is your biggest inspiration in the blogging world?

I’m really digging Clem from Clem Loves.  Honestly her dedication to the blogging community is amazing.  I struggle to find time to fit in managing my own blog around how crazy life gets…but Clem does her own thing AND handles “Blogger Love Share” on Twitter.  We salute you!

2. When you’re feeling down what is one thing that is guaranteed to make you smile?

Hi, my name’s Rachael and I’m a workaholic.  Nothing lifts my spirits quite like thinking about or implementing a new project.  Whether it’s something to do with my blog or my art, I love to feel productive!  Yes, I know.  I’m lame. 

Also, nachos…nachos make me smile!

3. Summer or Winter? Why?

My birthday is in December, so I have a natural affinity for winter.  I always look forwards to having time off at Christmas.  It’s the one holiday I feel like I can totally switch off and enjoy.  Mainly because I know I won’t have a pile of stuff to wade through when I get back to the office!  Plus, I get to see my Sister and Brother over the holidays which is great.

4. What are 3 things you have learnt from blogging?

  • I need to work on my grammar
  • Slow progress is better than no progress
  • Life is kinda cool when you have a passion

5. What are your 3 favourite things about yourself?

  • I’m extremely resilient
  • I love learning
  • I make people laugh – probably at me, but who cares?!

6. Are you a dog person or a cat person?

CAT PERSON!  I have two of my own.

He is really really shy.  But super loving.

9. And what would you cook for them?

I make a mean chili!  Although I would have to check dietary requirements first.  Being gluten intolerant I understand that the struggle is real! haha

10.What would your top tip be for practising self-love?

You can’t pour from an empty cup.”

Don’t ever feel guilty for stopping to take care of yourself.  Self-love isn’t selfish.  It’s imperative.

11. What are your goals for the rest of 2018 and how can we help you smash them?

I want to stay consistent with my posting, keep delivering helpful content and getting involved in the blogging community.  Numbers are nice but staying kind and keeping your integrity is nicer 😊
