Hello friends!. When I got nominated a few days ago for the sunshine blogger award by my blogger friend Nancy behind
Nancy’s Fashion Style ( Nancy was from the first bloggers I build a relationship with), First thing came to my mind is what is the sunshine blogger award?. Therefore, I searched the web to find out more. Apparently, The sunshine blogger award is basically given to bloggers for being “creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine in the blogging community”. WOW. I am honored!.
The sunshine blogger award
In this award, The nominee has to answer a few questions about the blog and themselves. Then they will nominate a few bloggers and ask them questions. Thus, I believe it is a great opportunity for bloggers to open up and talk about their experience and introduce themselves more to their readers and other bloggers. Today, I will be answering questions and
My answers to the sunshine blogger award are:
How did you come up with your blog name?
When I decided to create my blog. I wanted whoever visits my space corner aka my blog to feel like s/he is visiting me at home. I wanted to show them my way of styling right from my closet. Therefore, I was looking for a name that has my name and at the same time tell my reader that they are welcome to visit me. Since I am inspired by the French culture I came up with Chez-Rama which means at Rama’s house. Now this name is part of who I am.
Who is your photographer?
This question has two answers due to the nature of my blog. In fact, I have two main posts each week; Fashion and hairstyle. For my hairstyle, I take all my pictures myself with the help of my best friend aka remote control. Although It is a challenge, I enjoy taking them. As for other posts, my husband takes my pictures who proudly call himself “Instagram husband”. It is a learning curve for both of us but It has been a part of our lives and we love challenges.
When do you take your photos and where?
For my hairstyles photos, I take my pictures weekly at home behind my camera close to the window for some natural lighting. As for fashion photos, I take them also weekly depending on the weather and sun. My idea is to take pictures in a place I have been to and love. Therefore, all these places you have seen me taking pictures in front of are my go-to places in general.
What is your inspiration
As a blogger, I spend most of the time behind my PC’s screen. After all, it’s part of my job. Therefore, I got inspired by reading other’s blog posts, seeing social media pictures, and even Pinterest. However, I feel most inspired away from my screen out in nature. I love nature; flowers, birds, even insects. So you might see my love of nature in my wardrobe or hairstyle.
What is the funniest thing you experienced with blogging?
My mom is my biggest fan. So when I told her I have a fashion and hairstyle blog website. It was her chance to see me twice a week. Well, I don’t get to see my parents often since they live an ocean away. So they get excited to see me each time I post.
Anyhow, the funniest thing is that as soon as I hit publish to any post especially one with a cardi outfit, I receive a call from her and it goes like this: Hey! I just saw your post, I love your look…Where did you get the cardi?. I answer well I bought it online from X store. Then, she adds I love it so much. I answer thanks, mom. Then, I go do you like me to get you one in your size?. She answers no-no but if they have my size can you get me one. I go sure mom. Apparently, she has a thing with Cardi and some of my shoe collection.
Mom! if you are reading this which you probably are. I love you, mom. Also, I got you the dark gray cardi you love on me. XOXO

Rama, I am so honored that you nominated me! That means so much. Thank you for that. I will work on my post for next week…stay tuned! I love the story about your mom! So great and such wonderful memories you will have of all of that. My mother passed away many, many years ago, long before I started blogging (probably before blogging even existed), but I know she would love my posts and always have inspiring and proud comments! She would totally be all up in my business on my website and on my social media! Shelbee http://www.shelbeeontheedge.com
Thank you, Shelbee. I cannot wait to read your answers and get to know you more. I am sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure she is proud of you and watching over you my dear.

Happy weekend to you too
Oh, that is wonderful surprise, Rama! Thank you very much for nominating me. You made my day again! It was so enjoying to read your post. I’m glad that I was able to know you a little bit better. It is nice to feel your nice sweet bubbling personality hidden after your words. I’m going to google more about The sunshine blogger award, but I know already that I like this. The positive and uplifting feeling we can spread around the world is one of the many reason I’m doing blogging. Have a wonderful weekend, rama.
Thank you. It is a great opportunity to know more about you too and I cannot wait to read your post if you decide to post one. That’s so sweet of you to say Anna. I am happy to have you in this blogosphere.
Have a fabulous day.
Congrats on being nominated! I loved hearing more about you through these questions! My husbands takes my photos too but I am venturing out to taking them myself as well! You do an amazing job with your self-photography. Also LOVE all of your pretty outfits!!Lizziewww.lizzieinlace.com
Thanks Liz. I am glad you enjoyed it :). He is doing an amazing job. Plus, you are photogenic. I think you will do marvelous job yourself too :).Thanks for all the love. I am glad you do. Note ( it is sometimes fun to take pictures yourself. I really enjoy taking them. I encourage you to try it)
Great to learn more about you Rama. I love the story about your mom. Mine only sees my blog posts occasionally, when my brother shows her on his tablet, as she’s chosen not to have a smartphone or tablet. But she always texts me to say what she liked. You’re lucky your husband takes photos. Mine refuses because I wanted more than one or two each time! Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday.
Hey Gail! That’s sweet your brother would show her your blog from time to time. My mom still struggles where to find the comment section because she wanted to comment on each blog. Though I taught her, she struggles to find the comment section. Therefore, I told her it is okay she does not need to comment on each single post :). I know how it feels. My husband always asks me how many pictures I need and for what. Anyway, whoever taking your pictures is doing a great job already.
Wow, that’s a really fun story with your mom. Huge congrats on being nominated dear. You absolutely deserve it. Also, always love your photos, really cute colors!Jessica | <a href=”http://notjessfashion.com”>notjessfashion.com</a>
Thank you gorgeous Jessica.
So glad finding out more about you Chez and what the name of your blog means. You and your husband both do a great job with ALL of your photos. I love your fabulous hairstyles and hair tutorials and all your fun outfits that your mom admires.Question: Where are you from?!
