LIEBSTER Award

I'm so excited, I was nominated by @Beyond.brunette on Instagram for the Liebster award. This award is given to newly started blogs with under 1,000 followers so they can get some recognition for their hard work. All we have to do is answer 11 previous questions from the person who nominated us and then nominate 11 others and create 11 new questions for them to answer. I don't know that many up and coming bloggers but if you do, feel free to show them this. 

 

So these are the questions Samantha from http://www.beyondbrunette.com/ wrote! P.S check out her blog you will not be sorry! 

1. Who is your style icon?

This is interesting because I actually have no style icon. But if I had the money, I would definitely try and bring back the 1950s look. Like Audrey Hepburn but add a 2015 vibe to it.

2. How has your life changed since you started blogging?

Honestly, I don't know. I want to say it's been a good change because I'm actually expressing parts of myself that I have been so ashamed to speak about and I am able to show my fashionable side and photographs to many, But then again, I don't know because I'm not certain I am actually helping others who deal with anxiety like I do. I can hope though! So I guess my answer is, yes it has changed for the better, I've opened up a lot more and I'm writing more.

3. What is your favorite accessory?

My favorite accessory has to be my engagement ring. It's so beautiful and means so much to me. I wear it everywhere!

4. Who/what inspired you to start a blog?

I think what inspired me was the lack of awareness for anxiety sufferers and because I also wanted to show people that those of us who do suffer from an illness try and can live a normal life as much as possible. 

5. Coffee or Tea?

Well I'm a newbie barista, so I guess coffee. Though I'm starting to not like both because I'm around it so much.

6. How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is everywhere. It all depends on how I feel that day and also what I bought. I'm a broke college girl so I work with what I have, which isn't much but I still try, haha!

7. What is your favorite fashion decade?

Has to be the 1950s, so much elegance in the clothing and the way the women acted. I love how it was also okay for women to have curves. I know it's crazy to say because I wear clothes that show a lot but I actually enjoyed the less is more idea from the 50s.  

8. What is your favorite kind of shoe?

Flats, I love wearing comfy flats for my little feet, especially since I have such a small foot (size 4 1/2,) flats are usually the only things that fit my feet. I do on occasions find boots, heals, sneakers that fit but if it were up to me, my go to shoe would be flats.

9. New York, LA, Paris, or London?

I'm literally right next to NY so it isn't anything special to me and I went to LA in the Summer. I guess I didn't really like Los Angeles as much as I thought; I did love the beaches though. It is definitely between Paris and London; Paris because it is the romance city but London because hello, "Doctor Who", but then again I really think I'd like to sit at a cafe for the whole day and talk about nothing and everything and have great sense of style. Yep, Paris it is!

10. What is something you would like to accomplish this year?

I want to become a brand ambassador like really badly. I feel that more clothing brands should focus on the "typical" body type of our generation. I also really enjoy fashion and how it enables you to be expressive. Also, get my photography known. It sounds like a lot to accomplish in one quick year but I really do have a passion for fashion and my photography that I am drilling into this blog and on my Instagram. Hopefully someone can see the heart that I put into this and notice me, fingers crossed! 

11. What is one movie you could watch over and over again without getting bored?

I have a lot of movies that I could watch over and over again. "Cloud Atlas", "Free Willy","Practical Magic", just to name a few.

 

So now it is my turn to ask 11 questions. Have fun!

1. Why did you choose your name for your blog?

2. What is your biggest fear?

3. What/Who do you want to be when you grow up?

4. What is a pet peeve of yours?

5. Favorite fashion trend?

6. Favorite animal?

7.Who is your favorite singer at the moment and why?

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, would you?

9. Favorite season? 

10. What is one fashion trend you are embarrassed to have followed? 

11. Do you believe in luck?
