Sunshine Blogger Award

Welcome back!

I haven't done one of these in a while and I thought it would be fun to do another one after the lovely Mya from A Slice of Mya tagged me to answer her questions. She is new to blogging and is just a  lovely ray of sunshine. If you're reading Mya, thank you for tagging me! I love being able to answer some questions because I feel like it's a way to know the person behind the blog a little better even if it's just finding out what their favorite coffee is.

There are some rules to follow with this award and they are:
Thank the person who's tagged you and link their blog
Answer the questions they've asked
Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions
List the rules and display logo (Sorry, I made my own "logo" but the original is still floating around out there!)

Here are the questions Mya has asked:

Who is your favorite artist right now?
I'm really loving Lewis Capaldi. Those heartbreak songs are my jam. I'm keeping an eye out for a tour in the States where he'll be on the East Coast.

What kind of phone do you have?

I have the iPhone 7 in Rose Gold. I love this phone as I'm quite small and petite I feel like this phone fits well in my hands. I've seen the newer ones and they're all quite big.

What blog software/host do you use and why?

As of right now I'm using blogger. Once I relaunch my blog with the new name I've chosen, I'll be migrating to Wordpress.

What is your favorite color?

I love anything earthy toned. Neutral colors - and the occasional coral.

What is your coffee order?

I don't drink coffee very often. I'll have to be super tired to think of picking one up but when I do I order the Caramel Ice Coffee light and sweet at Dunkin'. Yes there is A LOT of sugar in light and sweet. It's why I don't have it often haha.

What is your favorite store to shop at?

Right now I'm loving Primark. Quality clothes for great prices. There's only one in my state at the moment so I have to plan out what day I want to drive 45 minutes away to go shopping.

Do you wear makeup everyday?

Mostly. I work as a receptionist and as front desk, you're the first person a customer sees and need to make a good impression. Even if I don't go glam, I try to tone down the redness on my face and put some mascara on.

Water or juice/soda?

I have to try hard for water. If there was soda and water next to each other I'd probably drink soda, but we don't really keep soda in the house so I tend to drink more water.

Do you write your posts randomly or have a plan for each one?

I try to plan ahead as much as I can. There are times when I do post randomly but it's seldom. This one was definitely on a whim!

What is your favorite social media?

Hmm, well, anything blogging related Twitter is my favorite. Instagram would be second as I'm not great on that platform. For just keeping in contact with family and friends, I still use Facebook.

What grade level was your favorite?

I'm guessing this question means grade anywhere from childhood to high school. I graduated high school about 7 years ago now so I don't really remember which was my favorite and why. But of any time academically where I've felt like I was doing great and getting somewhere it's only really been this past year that's motivated me to go back to college and go to University for a bachelors.
