So I got a message the other day from a fellow blogger, asking if it would be ok to nominate me for the Liebster Award, and being that I am a New Yorker, aka a die-hard skeptic my initial response was, “Thanks, can you send me the specs of such award?” As you can see, I’ve been burnt one too many times by the Publishing Clearing House mail with the million dollar check peeping through the envelope window.
After some research I realized that the Liebster award is a real thing, and actually an honor! How the Liebster award works is, bloggers nominate other bloggers who they feel are “doin’ the darned thang”, when it comes to blogging, then assigns them a set of questions to answer, and ask that they pass this honor along by nominating a few of the bloggers whom they admire.
So of course I was like, “Who me?!!” I am both honored and blown away by this nomination from fellow blogger Rica Lewis, creator and author of the awesome blog called, Yoga Mat Monkey

Wellness Is Not Just About Physical Health, It’s About Loving Life, Living Life, And Being The Best YOU You Can Be—Both Inside And Out!
I created this blog as an online community for anyone who is looking for the motivation, the inspiration, and the resources they require to create a beautifully balanced life.
I have a versatile background, which includes health research, professional promotion, a soon to be completed PhD in Health Psychology—and of course the invaluable life lessons that come with being a modern day woman.
You Don’t Have To Be One Or The Other
Too often those who set a goal to life a healthy and happy life get boxed into a modern-day hippie or touchy-feely box. While there certainly is nothing wrong with either of those boxes, what we must not forget—is that it doesn’t have to be one or the other!
You can want to feed your family a diet that consists mostly of clean green foods, and still eat a cheese doodle now and then.
You can be a fan of natural beauty, and step outside each day in a head-turning fashions.
You can maintain a relationship with your general health practitioner, yet turn to a naturopath and other alternative practices as your first line of defense.
You can mediate every morning, and hit the dancefloor in the evenings to get your groove on.
You can work out 5 days a week, yet still cherish your fabulous curves.
It Is Never A Choice Between The Two! A Balanced Life Is A Healthy Life
As a health researcher and constant “self-improver”, many of my friends and family members would reach out to me regarding everything from wellness, homeopathic health solution, natural beauty products, motherhood, relationships, emotional health—and of course fashion and style.
At CaraMiaWhy I will provide answers to some of the most sought-after questions I am asked, in an honest, informative—and often amusing manner.
