The Liebster Award

liebster award

I was recently nominated by Jasmine from her blog Jasmine Grace for The Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers as a way to connect and discover new bloggers. As part of being nominated I’m going to be answering ten questions, so here we go.

What made you want to start blogging? I’ve always loved fashion and beauty. I had always been complimented for having a good taste in fashion. I’ve been reading beauty and fashion blogs forever.  I finally decided one day that I wanted to do it too.

What was your first ever blog post? I think it was a ‘welcome to my blog’ type post. The second one was a fashion post. I think I’ve come a long way since then. If you’d like to see them, they’re still up.

What has kept you inspired to continue blogging?  If I’m being honest, I’ve haven’t been the most consistent blogger at times. Last year I wouldn’t blog for months at a time. I got more serious about it at the beginning of this year. But as far as what inspires me to continue blogging now. I don’t think there’s one definitive answer. I’m always finding inspiration from other people and things going on around me.

What is one thing you would like to tell your 15-year-old self? I’m only four years out from my 15-year old self. However, I feel a lot has changed in that time. I suppose I would tell myself not to worry so much. Everything is going to work out. Enjoy being in the moment because time flies. I think I could still use that reminder today.

Current favorite Netflix/T.V. show? As far as Netflix goes I think it’s going to be Gossip Girl. I love watching that in the autumn. For T.V. shows I’m going to go with Once Upon A Time. Technically it hasn’t started yet, but the season première is tonight and you can bet I’ll be watching it.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I honestly have no idea. I’m sure I’ll still be working but other than that, I have no idea where life will have taken me. A lot can happen in 5 years. I’m excited to see what’s in store.

Where/what is your dream vacation? Europe, in general, captivates me. I’d love to go to Paris and London some day. They both just look so breathtaking!

Do you have any future children names picked out yet? If so, what are they? I’ve had a few names I’ve liked throughout the years. I’ve liked names of cities recently, though. If you couldn’t already tell I have a pretty unique name myself, so I think whatever I end up choosing it’ll probably be something a little different.

All-time favorite style icon? Audrey Hepburn. She was such a classy, elegant women and I love her style.

What is your favorite blog post that you’ve written? That’s a hard one. I think I’m going to go with my post from Charleston. This one was a super fun day. I love all the photos and how they turned out.
