Cheers Sippin Gypsy Travelers! This post comes to you while popping open a cold refreshing Prosecco to celebrate my nomination for The Entertainer Blogger Award!
A huge thank you to my friend Lucy of Lucy Williams Global for my nomination! Lucy is such a talented writer and shares incredible adventures as she cruises the world. She has been to some of the most coveted places around the globe and she isn't slowing down! I am honored that she selected me! Thank you Lucy!!
This nomination comes upon the anniversary of my start into blogging and the inception of Sippin Gypsy with my friends and I. Lovers of travel, amazing food and cocktails, the concept begun out of a playful nickname that celebrated our whimsical and eclectic personalities, fashion style preferences and a shared passion to source out local food and recipes while trying new cocktails or variations on cocktails that were indigenous to the places we ventured. There is a simple belief that although we do have plans to travel the globe, there are things to treasure and experience just down the street. Being fortunate to live in such a beautifully diverse country as the United States, it was easy to start here.

MY RESPONSE TO THE QUESTIONS:
Why did you start blogging in the first place?
It really started with creating I Cloud photo share albums on our travels. My friends and I would want to see the beautiful places each other visited, the amazing food we tried and what new cocktails were inspiring that we would try together on our next girls night. In our travels and meeting the locals and other travelers, we found so many more amazing women like ourselves. When each other would travel to another place one of us had gone or experienced, we would dump a myriad of tips and suggestions. From there it was obvious to me that there was a whole world of Sippin Gypsies out there: Bold and amazing women who also loved "Exploring the world Sip by Sip" and enjoying everything this vast planet offers. Cheers to all of us!
What is your favourite book?
This is really hard to choose. My "favorite" changes so easily based on my mood. Currently I have been slightly obsessed over the history of the French Quarter in New Orleans. I have read and re-read the book "The French Quarter" by Herbert Asbury at least three times. But I am working on a fun project for my blog and vlog that has me gathering a lot of history and information about New Orleans, so this book has been not only intriguing but resourceful.
What do you dislike the most?
Negative people. There is so much beauty in world...don't poison the punch with a negative outlook...when life hands you lemons...make a margarita! Cheers!
What is your favourite food at the mall?
Mall food!? Ugggg. The mall closest to my home has brought in some small local entrepreneurs that offer fresh made salads and sandwiches. I would choose them,
What is your favourite pastime?
Sippin' and Strollin': I love to venture out, have a well crafted cocktail and walk and explore. If the place or city allows the cocktail "to go" even better!
