Hello, gorgeous people! Last week I had the honor of being nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Kelly of Amourtera. Today, I was finally able to take a breather and put together this post! The Liebster Award is supposed to be for blogs under 200 followers, and I applied that rule in terms of Bloglovin' followers, although those I chose may have well over that number on other social media platforms. Thank you so much to Kelly! I had a tough week and this award really brightened it a bit! Please know that if I nominated you, I truly enjoy your blog!
Here's how the Liebster Award works:
It's an award for blogs that have under 200 followers, designed to recognize and increase exposure.
First, thank the blogger who nominated you for the award. Then, answer the 11 questions they asked you, nominate 11 new bloggers, and give them 11 new questions to answer. The last step is to let the 11 new bloggers know you nominated them!
Here are Kelly's questions and my answers:
Q: When did you start your blog?
A: I started my blog in 2012 (when I went off to college) as a creative outlet and way to deal with being out on my own for the first time.
Q: What's your favorite band?
A: My absolute favorite band is OneRepublic. I get a lot of crap for it, because apparently they're really basic or whatever. Someone told me that they were my favorite band...along with every other semi-young girl's favorite band- to which I say... they've been my favorite since Apologize. So I get fangirl seniority.
Q: What's your favorite makeup brand?
A: I don't wear that much makeup, but I suppose I see myself gravitating towards Maybelline whenever I purchase something new.
Q: What's one trend you are tired of seeing?
A: I'll probably never be able to get behind culottes.
Q: If you could travel back to any moment in time, and re-live it exactly the same, what would it be?
A: This is super cheesy, but my prom night was perfect and I wouldn't mind doing that all over again.
Q: What's your favorite quote?
A: "Everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe
Q: What are you most proud of?
A: I'm going to be graduating university next fall with zero debt, so I'm pretty proud of that.
Q: If a zombie apocalypse were to happen right now, where would you go and what would you bring?
A: I'd go to Eastern Europe and party with the vampires. And I'd bring every episode of Orange is the New Black and How to Get Away with Murder.
Q: Would you ever skydive?
A: Maybe one day. But it would have to be with someone I trust a whole lot.
Q: What's one goal you have?
A: I want to get into a competitive graduate program and further my education. I just haven't decided if I'm going to tackle that right after college or wait a few years. I would also love to work for Buzzfeed or Cosmo. I've wanted to work for both of them for the longest time!
Q: Who is one person you look up to?
A: Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York is my absolute role model. He is a kind, generous soul and a great example of the ways in which we can use the Internet to make the world a better place.
5. What is one place (anywhere in the world) you recommend visiting?
Thank you so much for stopping by, and thanks again to Kelly!
