Blogger Recognition Award

Each time I am nominated for an award it truly means a lot to me. I haven’t been blogging for a long time but to see people acknowledge me for doing this new thing that I love I am forever grateful.

I was tagged in this specific award by four incredible bloggers that I personally love interacting with on Twitter. Huge thank you to these beautiful ladies for nominating me:





Please be sure to check these ladies out! Each of their blogs are very different and have awesome content.

The Rules: 

How I got started:

I began blogging in late May 2018, I started GrandFashLife as a way for me to reach people I wasn’t able to before. My style and thoughts are very different than most and I have always wanted to connect with people to share my ways of doing things or feelings in hopes to help someone else. That’s what I love to do, help others! Fashion has been apart of my life since I was a little girl as a way to express my feelings and creativity, I knew I wanted to show that to the world while giving people a positive outlook on some of the hardest times in our life. Something in me believes that I can use my creative passion to bridge together being fashionable and living a positive, self loving life.

2 Pieces of Advice for new bloggers:

#1: Don’t create content that someone else is creating because it brings them so many views and you want the same. Create what you love and be proud of what you’re doing.

#2: Everyday won’t be great! This applies to your blog and life, some days the views will be down and you’ll question if what you’re doing is enough. Dint pressure yourself, this is apart of the process, just keep going!

  1. Congratulations on your award! I think it’s lovely when another blogger recognises the effort that we put into our blogs or the blogging community. That little vote of confidence can be such a motivator when we feel like we’re not getting anywhere. “Create what you love and be proud of what you’re doing.” Love that line!
