The Sunshine Award

The oh-so lovely Katy over at Skin Stuff by Katy has nominated me for the Sunshine Award! I am a big fan of her blog, so thank you so much Katy, you just brightened my day! :)
So what is the Sunshine Award? It's an award given to those who inspire us and bring sunshine into our lives. That's pretty cool!

There are a few rules as well:

- Include the award logo in your blog post 

- Link to the person who nominated you

- Answer 10 questions about yourself

- Nominate other bloggers 

Here are the 10 questions from Katy!

1. What is your favorite time of the year? 
I would have to say summer because I love the hot weather and the long sunny days, but I also love winter and the intense cold... I guess I just really enjoy extreme weather. If it's 30°C or -30°C outside, I'm a happy girl! :)

2. What do you like most about blogging?

There are so many things I like about blogging! If I had to narrow it down to one, it would definitely be getting to interact with all of you! I have met such amazing people through blogging, and it just wouldn't be the same without your support! :)

3. Do you match your toenail color to your fingernail color?

Haha nope, I can actually only recount one time when I had them match. I prefer using different colors, but that's just me!

4. What is your favorite quote?

It would have to be "Everything happens for a reason." I believe in this quote so much. Life doesn't always go as planned, and we all have to get through tough times. But what is meant to be is meant to be. You just gotta keep the faith! :)

5. Do you save old greeting cards and letters, or throw them away?

I do! I actually have a framed box full of old birthday and Christmas cards. I even kept cards from my classmates from when I was in the third grade, that's right I'm talking elementary school! I just can't get myself to throw them away... I'm latching onto those memories! <3

6. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?

This is a really good one! I guess I'd have to say I wish I was more outgoing. I am introverted by nature and I feel most comfortable around people I know, and really like spending time by myself. I am working on that though, and although I don't believe I can ever be super extroverted, I definitely think I can improve and break out of my shell a little more.

7. What is one of the scariest things you've ever done?

Probably doing a presentation in front of my entire class last semester, so that's over 70 people! I have a big fear of public speaking, and no matter how many times I've had to speak in front of a class, it's as if my brain is programmed to make me fear it every time. :(

8. If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?

Great question! Apart from working in the beauty industry (that's a given haha), I think it would be so cool to be an air hostess for a day! 

9. Have you ever met any celebrities?

I have! I got to spend an entire day with Sheldon Souray (yes the NHL hockey player!) when I was 11 years old as part of a contest I won in school. At that time he played with the Habs, and it was so much fun, I even got to skate on the ice with him at the Bell Center, which is where the Habs play their games! I also got to meet Sugar Sammy after one of his comedy shows - it is seriously impossible to keep a straight face listening to that guy!

10. If you had an unlimited shopping spree at one store, which store would it be? 

Sephora! I treat myself occasionally to their products, but being on a student budget I sadly have to restrain myself most of the time. 

This was so fun to do! Thanks again Katy for nominating me! Now onto who I nominate:

I really like the questions I was asked, so I'm asking the same questions to my nominees above! :)


  1. I can totally relate with you on wanting to be more outgoing because I'm introverted also, but us introverts have our superpowers too... like having amazing problem solving skills :)

  2. Thank you for tagging me! :D I'm going to start answering questions now :D

  3. i am introvert also, but i am kinda the mixture of both intro and extro. because once i am back from going out i spend two days recovering!

  4. I don't throw away the cards I receive either! I feel so guilty thinking about that!
    I've actually got 2 cousins that are air hostess! (:
