I am beyond thrilled to post today, because I have been nominated for my first blogging award here on Chic By Any Other Name! It is for the Super Sweet Blogging Award:
The nomination has come from the incredibly talented mwojcie, who has a wonderful blog called Life Measured in Coffee Spoons. Like I was, mwojcie is an English major, so I especially enjoy reading her blog. She has also been Freshly Pressed, so you KNOW she’s good! Please check out her blog, she is fantastic, and I am so honored she nominated my blog for this award.
I was nominated for this a week ago, so I have been a bit belated in accepting it. I have still been having issues with being sick and I’m going to have to see a specialist, so I haven’t been blogging too much lately. I also always feel overwhelmed trying to pick other bloggers to nominate, there are so many talented people and both times I’ve been nominated for awards I always feel slightly presumptuous nominating people who have so many bloggers following them and are so talented. But hopefully you will go check them out for yourselves after seeing them here, so I am excited to accept this award. So here I go!
The rules for the Super Sweet Blogging Award:
1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer 5 Super Sweet Questions
3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award image in your blog post.
4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other bloggers.
5. Notify the nominees of their nomination on their blog.
The 5 Super Sweet Questions:
1. Cookies or Cake?
Definitely cake. I love cake. I am a dedicated lover of dessert, and cake is often my preferred dessert item. Don’t freak out but… I don’t even really like cookies that much. Except Milanos. Ohhhhh, Milanos.
2. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Twist. Hahaha is that cheating? Or to specify, I generally prefer Braum’s chocolate ice cream but I always want vanilla cake.
3. Favorite Sweet Treat?
I hate being that person who doesn’t have an answer, but I honestly never could choose. I just couldn’t. I just love dessert as a whole, so if dessert can count as my favorite, then that’s what I choose.
4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
I could eat dessert every day, truthfully. But I am actually pretty traditional, and I generally like my dessert after a meal. (I keep assuming that by sweet things that it means dessert, but it occurs to me that might not be the case but I’m still just going to roll with it.)
5. Sweet Nickname?
Sara is rather hard to make a nickname out of, since it’s already so short. Most people actually just call me by my whole name, Sararowe, like it’s one, long word. Generally, they just say it so fast that they combine the two names and take out the last ‘A’ in Sara and just say it like there’s one ‘R’, so Sarowe is probably the most common nickname. A lot of people have called me Rowe, and I can’t even tell you the number of nicknames that have come from that, including “Roweboat,” “Roweingboat,” and “Rowe, Rowe, Rowe Your Boat.” At the restaurant I worked at for my first ever job, one of the guys actually called me DeathRowe, which was slightly unsettling. So, there’s been a lot of them haha.
Now here are my 13 fabulous nominees. Please go check them all out, I’ve linked their names to their About pages, or just a recent post on their blog, so click them and enjoy! I’ve tried to nominate mostly fashion related blogs, just FYI 🙂
The Baker’s Dozen (13) Nominees
4. christinadang (I cheated a little bit, Christina is also the one behind yendiephan, but that page has a lot of her fashion portfolio, and this is her personal blog, and they are both worth checking out and following!)
13. lesleycarter (this one isn’t exactly fashion-related, but I think her blog is just too awesome not to include!)
