April Blogger Questionnaire: Blast From the Past

667

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been slacking a bit on posts lately as well as keeping up with reading other blogs. I’m doing my best, but I’ve been really busy. Hopefully I’ll have a post up sometime soon about what I’ve been up to. In the meantime, here is this month’s questionnaire that you can answer in the comments if you would like.

☮️ Which decade would you say is your favorite?

☮️ What are some of your favorite style trends from the past? (This can include fashion, makeup, and hairstyles).

☮️ What are some style trends from the past that you never want to see make a comeback?

☮️ What are some of your favorite songs from times past?

☮️ What are some of your favorite memories of being a kid?

☮️  If you could have dinner with someone from the past, who would it be?

☮️ What is a past event that you wish you could have experienced?

March Blogger Questionnaire: Feeling Lucky

631

It seems like just yesterday that I was posting the February questionnaire, and now here we are again. We’re a week into March already! This year is flying by, but then again, when does it not? At least for me. Anyways, if you’ve been around for a while, you know the drill. If not, this month’s questions are below, and you can choose to answer one, several, or all of them. It’s totally up to you. I always enjoy reading your answers.

Do you have any Irish ancestry?

Have you been having more good luck or bad luck recently?

Do you play the lottery?

Do you gamble? (Other than the lottery)

Do you believe in Karma?

Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?

As always, my answers will be in the comments.

 

The Sunshine Blogger Award

604

It has been a while since I’ve done one of these award posts. I do not do one every time I’m nominated. It usually depends on if it fits in my blogging schedule or not. Of course I’m always grateful whenever someone chooses to nominate me.

This time I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award, and I’ve actually been nominated for this one three times. I was first nominated by Laken back in November. Then I was nominated twice this month by Claudia and Sazzy & Joanie. Thank you all for nominating me! This post might get a bit long as I plan to answer all of their questions in this one post.

February Blogger Questionnaire: Love Is In The Air

579

Another month is upon us already, so it’s time for another questionnaire. I did the first questionnaire last month, and everyone seemed to enjoy it, so I plan to keep it going. Although this little series is titled ‘Blogger Questionnaire’, everyone is welcome to participate, even if you don’t have a blog. (Sometimes questions might be about blogging, so if you don’t have a blog, you can just skip those).

As I stated previously, I’m going to be picking a different theme for the questions each month. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I figured love would be a good theme this month. (Plus, it’s such a broad term.) I hope you all will participate again this month and leave your answers in the comments.

January Blogger Questionnaire: Winter & New Beginnings

522

I was reading a blog award post when I came up with this idea. I know that not all bloggers like to participate in awards because they don’t want to clog up their blog or it doesn’t fit in with their niche. Whatever the reason, I totally understand. I’ve done a few awards posts here on my blog, but I’ve also been nominated for many I haven’t done, just because it didn’t fit in with my posting schedule at the time.

Still, one of the great things about those awards is the questions that bloggers answer, which allows you to get to know them a little better. Now that a new year is upon us, I thought I might try something new here on my blog. Once a month, I would like to do one of these blogger questionnaire’s.

Basically, it will be where I post a set of questions, and you bloggers can answer them right here in the comments, if you wish. No need to post anything on your blog, and this can be a way for me to get to know my fellow bloggers even more, and it can also allow you the opportunity to get to know others. Blogging wouldn’t be as rewarding if it wasn’t for the community that comes along with it.

6 Months of Blogging!

501
I can’t believe it has already been six months since I created this blog! Time sure does fly. I was an active blogger from 2005-2011 until I decided to give it up, and I stayed gone for a solid six years. There were times I contemplated getting back into blogging, and it was something that I thought about quite a bit before creating this one. I was worried I wouldn’t have anything worth writing about though. It was a little different back then. Blogging was more like a journal open to the public. A lot of bloggers, myself included, would blog about every little thing that was happening in our lives. Of course, when you’re a teenager and then transition into your 20’s, there’s a lot more drama and craziness. At least that’s how it was for me. Now that I’m in my late 20’s, my life is pretty much a borefest. I go to work, come home, eat, play with my cat, watch TV shows or movies, go to sleep, repeat.

Sparkle VoxBox

voxbox01

I received my first VoxBox! I’m really excited about it because for some reason I never thought I would be considered for one. Receiving a box of products completely free seemed almost too good to be true for me.

If you don’t know what a VoxBox is, it’s a box of products that is mailed to you for free in exchange for you sharing on social media as well as filling out a mandatory survey that is sent to you a little while after you get a box. It is a part of the Influenster site and app. You may or may not receive a box each month. They are sent out based on your preferences and snap survey’s that you have to fill out to be considered. If they think you fit the demographic for their current box, they will send you a pre-qualification survey via email asking if you’re open to trying and reviewing certain types of products. Then they notify you again if you’ve been chosen to receive a box.

I’m so happy I was picked to receive this box! I hope I am picked for more as well, but here are some of my thoughts on this one.
