You Are My Sunshine

I couldn’t hardly believe my eyes when I read that Rae at Pastel Carousel had nominated me for an award. I have only been blogging since late November & it just made my heart swell. I know that sounds totally silly, but I’m sure like most bloggers, I put my posts out into the void not knowing what to expect in return. Some may say I’m just blogging about clothes & it’s not a big deal, but I would say my style is an expression of who I am individually so it’s a big deal to me.

Rae is a super cool, fun, whimsical sprite that writes a super cool, fun, whimsical blog covering her favorite things; family, fashion, art, literaturegaming to name a few. I highly encourage you to check out her blog.  Thank you, Rae for thinking of me. I find your work so engaging & feel warm & fuzzy all over that the feeling is reciprocated!

My Sunshine Rules*

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from your nominator.
  • Nominate other bloggers that bring sunshine to your day.
  • Ask your nominees as many thoughtful questions as you so desire.
  • Please click to all the nominated blogs & follow at will.

Rea’s Questions To Me:

How did you come up with your blog name?

My pal, Elisha, who writes a very different blog from mine, let me pick her brain on blogging & helped me to come up with the name Baubles&Knots. I wanted something fashion related, but not with “ista” in the title. I like how baubles & knots is like nuts & bolts. It references the details that make up a whole.

What’s your favorite piece of clothing/jewelry right now?

My favorite piece that I own are my joggers. They are comfy & stylish!

Do you prefer sunlight or moonlight?

Sunlight, unless it’s a cool evening sitting around a fire enjoying company & refreshment.

What’s your favorite season & why?

Spring/Fall – The temperature is crisp & it makes for those perfect fireside evenings.

Name one goal for 2016.

Hmmm….I really wish I had a blog related goal or fashion/style related goal or some milestone goal like running a half marathon, but I don’t. Lets say to read more books than in 2015, which was 22. I’ve read 2 so far!

My Nominees include some ladies that have welcomed me into this new community & have great content to boot!

Questions to my fellow sunshiny bloggers*

  • Is there a favorite book/movie/band/artist that influences your personal style?
  • Do you think it is important to unplug & how do you balance this while participating in a digital world?
  • What does style mean to you?

I can’t wait to see your responses if you choose to participate.


*I’ve adapted these rules to better suit me.

* I’ve adapted these questions from Wee Little Penguin & Nikis Reviews. They do some wonderful interview pieces & I’ve been itching to turn the questions on them.

    • Unfortunately, I did not like #Girlboss. Leave Your Mark was much better. Its one that will be purchased (big supporter of local library for most of my reading) & a copy for my daughter as well.
