Liebster Award

A few days ago I saw that I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Style and Grace!  I had no clue what that was so I looked it up on Google, and I love the idea behind it.  It's basically bloggers supporting bloggers.  I've only been blogging for about 2 months, so I was surprised to see that someone actually had my blog in mind.  Thank you so much again Grace! And check her out if you haven't already :)

Update: I just saw I was nominated again by Joan!  I already had this post finished and ready to publish, so to save people from reading too much, I'll just answer the first batch of questions.  Thank you so much Joan!  


1. The nominee has to answer the 11 questions posed by their nominator.
2. The nominee has to nominate 11 other people with less than 200 followers.
3. And then, the nominee must write 11 questions of their own.

If you've already been nominated, it's totally fine not to answer my questions :) 

Grace's questions:

1. If someone gave you unlimited funds right now to re-decorate your home or re-vamp your wardrobe, which would you choose?

Well I don't have my OWN home yet, so I would re-vamp my wardrobe.  My style has changed so much within the last year and there's so many pieces I would get rid of.  So having unlimited funds to replace them with more "me" things would be amazing!

2. What is the one fashion accessory you could never give up?

Probably a purse.  I never go anywhere without one.  I feel naked if I don't have one with me haha

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?

London! Well, a few places in the UK actually.  If you ask me where I want to travel when I have the opportunity to, London is ALWAYS the first thing I say.  From what I've seen through YouTubers and blogs, it seems like I relate to it way more than where I am now.  I love it, and I can't wait to really go there one day.

4. What made you decide to start your blog and what is your favorite thing about blogging?

For the longest time I wanted to make a YouTube channel.  I've tried filming videos with a few people, but it's really hard to do when you don't have a good camera.  Plus, I'm still a student, and that takes up a lot of time too.  I took a social media class my spring semester of this year and had to make a social media plan for a product, which included making a blog.  After doing that I decided that I would get into blogging once the school year was over since I'd have plenty of time to focus on it over the Summer.  Now I have one up and running :) My favorite thing about blogging is that I talk about things that I genuinely love.  I get to read other blogs that love the same things I do, but at the same time we are all very different.

5. You're running late getting ready in the morning and have to decide between doing your hair or your makeup. Which do you decide to do?

I would do my makeup.  I like feeling fresh faced, and I actually like the look of messy, effortless hair.

6. Do you have one go-to beauty product you couldn't live without?

Ahh it's so hard to pick one! But if I had to pick one it would be lip balm.  I HATE that feeling of dry lips.

7. What is the fall fashion trend you are most looking forward to trying?

I haven't done my research on up and coming fall fashion trends, but I do love being able to layer in the cooler weather.  Fall fashion is my favorite fashion :)  

8. Who is your style icon and why?

It's so hard to choose one style icon! I love Blake Lively's red carpet looks, and I've always loved Kourtney Kardashian's style. 

9. Where is your favorite place to shop when looking for fashion on a smaller budget?

Definitely Forever 21!

10. Would you rather shop online or in an actual store?

Store.  Even though it can get hectic in stores, I like to feel confident in my purchases.  I need to try it on and get a good feel of the material.

11. Describe your style in one sentence: 

My style is dressed up casual made up of minimalistic and basic pieces.  (This was really hard to come up with.)
