The Creative Blogger Award!

Aloha everyone!

I am thrilled and honored to tell you that I have been nominated for

The Creative Blogger Award! 

Creative Blogger Award

What makes it even more special is the fact that I have been nominated by my very first follower Sheema who encouraged me right from the start (almost 2 weeks ago)! She is absolutely gorgeous, kind and real! I highly recommend checking out her blog!

I love when women empower each other because that is what strong women do – behind every strong woman is an army of strong and empowering women! – ClaudiaMarie

5 Random Facts About Me:

  1. After finishing high-school I have traveled to Australia, bought a 4WD, built a bed into the back of the car and traveled around the country for a whole year and absolutely loved the feeling of freedom.
  2. Besides obtaining my Psychology Degree, one of my biggest successes has been changing my lifestyle to being healthy, strong and active and losing 60lbs. I will share more about my journey as it completely changed my self-confidence.
  3. I eat pretty clean 80% of the time and the other 20% it is an “I eat Nutella straight out of the jar” kind of time.
  4. I spent 4 months in Costa Rica where I lived in a host family, learned Spanish, traveled around Costa Rica and Panama and worked in an orphanage. The most beautiful thing about all that is that I met the most amazing person…my soulmate.
  5. I am a total morning person – ya I am the kind of person who came into school singing and wishing everyone a good morning lol. I wake up around 4:30am and like to start my day with a workout. Typically, I am in bed by 10:30pm the latest.

I would like to nominate the following bloggers who I very much enjoy reading. I highly recommend to check them out and show them some love:

Dianne Gray – a fellow Far North Queenslander who won over a dozen awards with her incredible writings kills.

Zee – has a beautiful webpage where she shares how she “reviews the world”.

Petite Mariele – she is so talented and her makeup looks are the bomb.

Melati – I love her blog posts which are filled with knowledge on natural, vegan and organic body and bath products

Mammu – she is such a positive person and inspires me to wear more colors

Zinita – we share the obsession for beauty and skincare and I just love reading her honest posts.

There are so many more who I think are so creative and I am discovering new blogs everyday 🙂

Have a lovely day,

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and saying that. It made me smile 🙂

      I love adventures (not so much the cliff diving and bungee jumping ones LOL) but that is what keeps life exciting.

      Are you into the the cliff diving, etc kind of stuff?


      1. Not at all! LOL I swear the older I get the more anxious I get. My husband scuba dives and spear fishes under water and I have an anxiety attack just thinking about snorkeling on top of the water lol I have snorkeled, though, and it was awesome!

        1. Ohhh I can feel with you LOL!! It is crazy to think about all the things I would have done when I was younger and now the older I get…lol

          I am glad that I am not alone :-). Do you guys prepare and eat the things your hubby catches? That is something I would love to try. Here in Hawai’i a lot of people spear fish octopus. Yum!


    1. You are the sweetest! Thank you so much, hun! You are super special and I just saw that you have been nominated for an award as well! I will head over to your blog after having lunch and check it out 🙂

  1. You’ve got some pretty interesting facts! I would’ve loved to travel the way you did all over Australia *.* This would’ve been my life if I wasn’t a mommy 🙂 And these 4 months in Costa Rica must’ve been life changing and beautiful, living in a different environment and helping out! I’m totally a morning person too, back when I went to school I always jumped out of bed with the first ring of the alarm and started my day. And I just can’t force myself to be awake late! The night is beautiful, but early mornings with birds singing, frisk air and sunrise have my heart ❤ Lovely to get to know you more 🙂

    1. Hi Mammu,

      thanks so much for your kind comment. You will laugh but I met a lot of families traveling with their kids (especially when they are still younger and not in school)…so it is never too late 😉

      Haha I am so glad to hear that you are the same way. I feel like when I wake up early I have more of the day and can be more productive.

      Have a lovely day and I am looking forward to reading about your random facts 🙂

  2. Great answers. Well, I’m a morning person too. But 4:30 sounds like too early. But anyways, it is great to start the day earlier as you feel like you have more hours to work with.

    I loved your blog and followed you just now.

  3. I usually start the day at 4:30 as well, Claudia (but I get pretty tired in the evenings!)

    Congratulations on this award and thank you so much for the nomination. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your life and your amazing weight loss xxx

      1. Lol! You are not alone on that one, and yes, that party would be THE BEST EVER! It’s so fun to meet a Hawaiian friend through blogging 🙂 I started March, but I am loving it so much. I wish it was my full time job! I’m so inspired by your health and fitness journey girl 🙂 xx
