The Liebster Award

Happy Tuesday Lovelies! I have something special for you today! 

Last week I was nominated for the Liebster award by not one, but two bloggers! This is my first time getting nominated, so it’s really crazy! 

If you don’t know what the Liebster award is, here are some details:


 

The Rules:

1. You must link back to the person that nominated you. A BIG THANK YOU TO BEEDIE AND NIKKI!!
2. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you

My Nominees:

Ashley @ Mrs. Mama
Ashley @ From Ashley to Awesome
Allison @ Because I Said So
Crystal @ Our Kind of Special
Amanda @ Voyage of the Mee Mee
Stephanie @ The Dreams Weaver
Ashley @ Mixed up Mayhem
Terrai @ Twenty Something and Married
Rachael @ LUMUHAND
Amanda @ Marry Mint
Angie @ Angie’s Angle

(I compiled this list from Bloglovin, GFC, and Twitter)

 My questions from Beedie:

1. What made you start your blog?
I am a mom, wife, grad student, and part-time worker, so most of the things in my life are out of my control. My blog, however, is the one thing that I can control. I can write about what I want, post as much as I want, etc. Basically, I started it as an outlet for myself.

2. What is your must have item?
Beauty: Mascara and EOS lip balm
Style: A scarf
Jewelry: my wedding ring and Love Letters initial necklace by Mint Sugar Boutique.

3. If you could be anything, what would it be and why?
Someone who doesn’t live paycheck to paycheck, because that would solve a lot of my problems.

4. What was the best experience of your life?
Meeting Lil Man for the first time.

5. What was your funniest memory?
When I married my husband, I decided that it would be funny to smash the piece of cake in his face, when we did the cake cutting thing. I did it, he got me back, and I had blue frosting up my nose. Still my favorite and funniest memory.

6. Who is your all time favorite blogger and why?
Kate @ the small things blog- She is my go too for hair inspiration

7. Would you rather live without makeup or never buy any clothes ever again?
Never buy clothes again, because a few of my friends could “donate” them to me.

8. What is your biggest mistake?
Not going away to college. If I would have, it wouldn’t have taken me 8 years to finish my undergrad.

9. What is your best makeup tip?
Put mascara on before eye shadow, therefore if you have lil mascara specks everywhere, you can just rub a q-tip on them to get them off.

10. What is your no.1 wardrobe item?
I love my leopard print scarf, but my silver jeans are my no.1 hands down.

11. And finally, what advice do you give to a new blogger?
Be yourself, participate in link-ups (but not for each post), create original content, and be gracious to your commenter’s, ie. Send a lil e-mail back thanking them.

My questions from Nikki:

1. Favorite restaurant and fav dish there?
Does Starbucks count? If so, I love all of their cream-based goodness and the cake pops

2. If you stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you bring with you?
A magazine, a cooler full of something to eat and drink, and a hair brush.

 3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
The ability to duplicate myself. I have my hand in so many pots, and I would love to be able to give 100% to each, and not be stressed.

4. What is your dream vacation spot?
Somewhere warm

 5. Favorite TV show of all time?
There are so many that I have loved over the years, but currently it’s a tie between Grey’s Anatomy and Suits.

6. Must have beauty product?
Mascara, hands down.

 7. Do your real life friends/family know about your blog?
Simply put, yes. (And my mom even reads sometimes)

 8. What is your dream job and why?
Something that makes me happy, and builds my karma. Maybe working at a non-profit that helps abused kids, or animals.

 9. Favorite social media platform (facebood, instagram, twitter, etc)?
I am a shutter bug, so Instagram gives me that outlet to show off my awesome skills. LOL

 10. Favorite blog to read daily ( I Know this is incredibly hard, but try to choose just 1)?
I Wore Yoga Pants to Work. Whitney cracks me up.

11. What celebrity (or famous person) do people say you look like?
Honestly, none. 

My questions for my 11 nominees:


1. How long have you been blogging?
2. What is the story behind your blog name?
3. Who is/was the most influential person in your life?
4. Do you have any pets? Tell us about them.
5. If you could attempt to do something, and not fail, what would you attempt?
6. What is your favorite memory?
7. If you had to choose between makeup and hair products (shampoo, etc. not included), which would you choose?
8. Do you have a significant other? How did you meet?
9. Favorite animal?
10. Do you have any hobbies, besides blogging?
