Blog Awards – THANK YOU!

Hi Curlies,

Over the past week I have been nominated for 3# blog awards by two fellow beautiful bloggers – Nature’s Pulchritude and The Kink And I.  Nature’s Pulchritude appreciates the ‘Pulchritude’ of Nature through Natural and Organic Beauty Products and Food; while The Kink And I  is an Afrikan butterfly’s natural hair blog. ‘Fro love lives there 🙂  Both blogs are truly awesome and have been helpful to me so go show these ladies some luv!

Personally, I find some of the terms of accepting these blog awards a tad bit tedious but I could not ignore these nominations. I am very grateful that people find my blog meaningful. To this end, I am accepting all 3# awards in one go.

Here are the rules to the Sunshine Award:

  • Use the logo above in the post.
  • Link to whoever nominated you.
  • Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
  • Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”

Now, here are the rules for the Shine On Award:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Show appreciation by acknowledging the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
  • Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and happily pass on this award, making sure to link their blog into your post.
  • Contact your chosen bloggers and let them know.

These two Awards are pretty similar so I will do them together.
