hey Angeline Melody Nyatsine , looks like you posted the same question 2 times. I already replied to you in the first post here: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/add-labels-for-the-two-checkboxes-that-say-fast-shipping-and-subscribe-to-newsletter

hope that helps and have a nice day ;)

The for value needs to match the id of the target input, so your markup should be:

<input type="checkbox" id="shipping" value="fast_shipping"
      name="user_shirt size"><label class="light" for="shipping">Fast Shipping</label><br>
      <input type="checkbox" id="newsletter" value="subscribe"
      name="user_shirt size"><label class="light" for="newsletter">Subscribe to Newsletter</label><br>
