The Sunshine Award



Well gosh, I never thought I would ever be awarded on my blog. I’d like to thank the Academy, God, my wonderful parents, and of course Hilary of Cutie Cameras who had nominated me. Isn’t it such a happy name for an award? Now that I’ve won, here is what I must include in this post:

1. Thank the one that nominated you and link back to their blog
2. Put up the picture for the Sunshine Award
3. Share 11 facts about yourself
4. Answer the 11 set questions by your nomination blogger
5. Nominate 11 bloggers
6. Include 11 questions for your nominees to answer


1. I am adopted from South Korea
2. If I could, I would eat Asian cuisine every day (and it’s not just because I’m Asian)
3. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is number one on my top five list
4. If I could be a model for any company, it would be J.Crew

10. If I could go anywhere in the world, it would be London

1. What is your favorite season and why? Summer is my all-time favorite. I love the long days and the sense of “anything can happen.”

2. What is one word that describes you? Pick a word that describes you best. Bright; I love colors, am genuinely happy and smiley, and have a good idea every once in awhile.

3. If you had a time machine, where and when would you go and of course, why? I would go back to like 1959 or something. I love what was happening design-wise: graphic design, fashion, interior design, architecture. I think it would be fabulous to experience all of that at once.

4. What is your dream job? To either be a full-time sponsored blogger, be a Graphic Designer for Pixar, or be in the fashion industry.

5. What is your favorite part about blogging? I really enjoy the research. I love finding examples of what I’m talking about and sharing it with all of you.

6. What is a food that you hated as a kid? Do you still hate it? PEAS! I hated them as a kid and I hate them now! YUCK!

7. You have three extra hours of free time. What do you do? I would go to the gym/run, grab a coffee, then blog!

8. What is your favorite dessert? I am not a huge fan of sweets, but I do enjoy an occasional strawberry shortcake.

9. Who inspires you? I get inspiration from  a lot of people, but I would say I get inspired quite often from Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest (my all-time favorite blog) and my two lady friends Hilary and Sara.

10. What is your favorite movie? Gosh, that’s a toughie, too. I’d have to say Harry Potter. I’m not going to pick just one of the movies because I can’t, but I enjoy all of them.

11. What is one of your favorite blogs to follow? It would again be Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest. Her blog inspired me to start blogging again and I just love her work as a fellow Graphic Designer.
