Her Campus Blogger network and… Blog of the Year (2013)!

Oh my goodness reader,

As you may know, I had a really crappy week in the love and academics world. How sad it is that it’s only the third week of the new year and I already had a crappy week? However, in the blogging world, it was my week! 🙂 About a month ago, I applied to be a member of the Her Campus Blogger Network… I checked my e-mail last night, and I’m in! I am so excited!

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegAnd then, earlier this week, my good friend Audrey over at Like Crazy gave me the Blog of The Year 2013 award! I AM SO FLATTERED! Thanks girl 🙂 I just want to hug you and take you out to lunch. You have no idea how much this means to me! You know I love your blog and all the stories you share!

So, these are the rules:

1. Select another blog(s) who deserve the award;

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award;

3. Include a link back to this page and provide these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5. You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience.

6. As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Right so, this is the absolute hardest part of receiving a new award…passing it on- my readers know I love all of them! Why must I choose? But knowing that 2013 was a rough year for me, I’m going to give it to the two readers that really inspired me and helped me during my tough times this year.

Michelle at Dancing in the rain!

Paul at The Captain’s Speech

Congratulations to the both of you! Keep up your writing, I really enjoy it ❤

And to all my readers, thank you for inspiring me to keep up my own writing 😉 Love you all!

xoxo. Shaz.

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!! :)

I did it reader. I am so grateful for all the awards received for this blog, but I’m so honored that girlinthvery inspring blogger awardeonesie nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award 🙂 She said she nominated me because I “genuinely make her laugh out loud”. When I started this blog, that was one of my biggest purposes, to INSPIRE and make others laugh out loud! So I’m happy and flattered that I got this award ❤ If you love me, you should definitely check out girlintheonesie too! We have very similar “man problems” and sassiness! I love her 🙂

1.) I cry about everything. Happy news, bad news, sad news, guy swept me off my feet news, I cry. I’m just a big sweetheart ❤ The smallest things mean a lot to me 🙂

2.) I find it hard to hate people, and always try to forgive. If I tell someone I hate them, I’m probably lying. My heart doesn’t work like that.

3.) I believe every day is a gift. I don’t let my past define me. I try not to have any regrets and believe that everything happens for a reason.

The Liebster Blog Award!! :)

liebster blog 1Right when I was having the start to a very crappy week, the wonderful missmaxwell91 nominated me for this 🙂 Yayyyy me! I googled what Liebster meant, apparently, it means “darling” in German! Did you hear that reader? *Blushes* I’m a darling. But to be serious, mostly, it’s for new and upcoming bloggers. Suits me well ❤ So a big thank you to missmaxwell91! *Giggles in admiration* she described me as “Sassy MsSassPants, love her!” I love her too ❤ Don’t forget to check her out at Let’s Talk!


P.S- I apologize for the delay 😦 Hopefully you’ve been reading my recent posts and know what’s been going on :/

Okay so. Here are the rules:

The recipient must post 11 fun facts about themselves

The recipient must also answer 11 questions created by the award giver

The recipient must give the award to 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers and post 11 questions for them to answer

These 11 bloggers must be told they have been given the award

They will in turn pass the award on to 11 new bloggers of their choice (no tagging back the award giver)

Lovely. 11 fun facts about myself:

1.) I love to read. I’d rather read than go out sometimes….Clearly, since I like to write, I believe it’s just as important to read.

2.) It took me the longest time to get my driver’s license. I failed 4 times!!!! #persistence

3.) I will never step outside without putting on earrings and eyeliner first. Even if it’s to go to the gym…

4.) The days I look best are the days I don’t try at all apparently. (Natural beauty??)

5.) People think I’m the biggest girly girl. But I would love to take on any guy in baseball or basketball any day.

6.) I do believe in fairytales when it comes to love…omg somebody help me.

7.) Sometimes. When I need cheering up…I ask myself, men or chocolate? *Giggles*

8.) I have the most adorable natural wavy hair. I need to embrace it and stop straightening it…..

9.) I still heart my I’s….

10.) I’m one of those sassy girls that would choose looks over comfort when it comes to shoes. Therefore, stilettos> flats. I need to stop doing that…

11.) There is nothing better in the world than gossiping with my mommy after a long day. I love her ❤

Let’s see here… Questions Written for Me from missmaxwell91:

1. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

Hmm I think my dad. He’s definitely really impulsive and passionate like me!

2. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?

I’m definitely a lot stronger. This past year brought many challenges, and dealing with them has made me so much stronger.

3. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are (why)?

24! I’m very mature for my age I believe.

4. What does ‘The American Dream’ mean to you?

Freedom and opportunity.

5.What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?

When my dad gave me his iPod. I was only like 9 and NO ONE had one. But he realized I was extremely passionate about music and wanted me to have something that would allow me to listen to it anywhere.

6. What are three moral rules you will never break?

Snitching. Smoking. Giving into peer pressure. I never want to do any of those three things.

7. What is your most prized possession?

My necklace my mommy gave me. I used to only wear heart necklaces, but my mom bought me a new one. It’s a butterfly necklace, “for new beginnings, and for the inspiration to keep flying” she told me.

8. What has been the most terrifying moment of your life thus far?

I’m gonna keep this one to myself!

9. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?

My mom makes my favorite chocolate pancakes the next morning if I had a bad day the day before.

10. What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year?

People are not all that they seem. The “nicest and perfect” people are exactly the ones you have to watch out for.

11.What one ‘need’ and one ‘want’ will you strive to achieve in the next twelve months?

Need- I’m gonna keep that to myself. Want- I want to start letting myself always smile and laugh again like I used to.

And now…it’s my turn to nominate!
