Liebster Award No. 3!

Epic Win!!

Well, what do you know; I've been nominated for my third Liebster Award, and the second one this year (I wonder is this a record)! I guess it just goes to show how my popularity is growing! This nomination came from Corinne over at cat eyes & thigh highs.




The rules:
You must link back to the person who nominated you!
You must answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
You must post 11 random facts about yourself.
You must pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.


Questions to Me

1. Where do you look for inspiration for posts?
My whole life is my inspiration. The great thing about blogging that there are no rules other than the ones you make for yourself, so you can write a post about anything. I get ideas from my experiences, reactions to situations, photos I see, places I go, foods I eat, everything really. If I have an idea about something, then there's my inspiration!
 

2. Favorite song of all time?
This is a tough one. There are so many songs that just speak to me deep down, but I have to say my favorite would be "Name" by the Goo Goo Dolls. It's so deep without having a heavy message, and the acoustic cords help too!
 

3. Who is your favorite fashion designer?
Ha, despite being a shopaholic and self-proclaimed fashionista, I'm not really into designer brands, so I don't really keep up with fashion designers. But if I had to pick a designer it would be Vera Wang. Even though she got famous from her wedding dresses, she has not branched out into all types of clothing and accessories (I love her tights at Kohl's)!
 

4. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be & why?
There are so any places I would love to go, but if I could live anywhere, it would definitely be Paris. Anyone who claims to have a passion for fashion, beauty, and elegance has to live in Paris; it's a requirement! On top of that, the weather there is relatively nice (no crazy extremes), and there are millions of smooth talking men with French accents, what's not to love!
 

5. 1 place on your travel bucket list?
Russia. Weird, I know, but ever since I studied Russian history, it's a place I've wanted to go. Besides, who can resist all those tall, sexy Russian guys! (As you can see, there is an obvious trend in the places I want to visit and live!)
 

6. What is your favorite part of blogging? (Writing, interacting with readers, etc.)
Writing. I've always been a natural-born writer, so when I discovered an outlet that would let me share my thoughts and feelings through writing to the masses, I was thrilled! I remember when I started blogging thinking "Why don't more people blog?!" But then again I guess most 20 somethings would rather tweet "I Hooked Up with...!!!!" than to write an intelligent, planned out blog post.
 

7. Who is your biggest inspiration?
This one's a toughie. I've never looked up to anyone in the way that most people do and think "Gee, I want to be just like that person." But I would have to say that my mom has been someone I've looked up to throughout my life.
 

8. What is your favorite subject to write about?
Product reviews. These are good posts for when you have writer's block since they practically write themselves. I also enjoy informing others of how my experience with a particular product was to help them in their decision making.
 

9. Your favorite quote of all time:
"Life's a journey, not a destination"-Aerosmith
 

10. Are you a summer or winter person?
Another toughie. I would have to say summer only because I hate being cold more than I hate being hot. But I also don't like very hot weather either. If there was a place where summer meant 85 degree weather, I would want to be in that place.
 

11. One movie/show that you can watch a million times & never tire of:
Four years ago I would have said "Arrested Development", but now it would definitely be the new Sherlock Holmes series. It's such a tease how they only make 3 episodes!

My Facts (sorry if I repeat stuff from the last Liebster Award)

1. My favorite color is green.
2. I never learned how to swim.
3. I've never been to the beach (partly because of Fact #2)
4. Apparently my fashion twin is Kate Middleton *yay*!
5. I hate the color pink.
6. I've been wearing high heels since 8th grade (you know all that is going to catch up with me when I hit 40!).
7. I don't like watching sports of any kind.
8. I've never had any broken bones.
9. I'm afraid of bugs, but not mice (very strange).
10. Wearing plaid and stripes together is the biggest fashion faux pas in my book, followed by wearing stockings and open toed shoes (this is an oft broken one).
11. I can't go to sleep in a warm room, so I always have to sleep with a fan on, even in the winter.

  1. HaHa! Congratulations on your award (again). They've been going around a lot. There are definitely not any rules when it comes to blogging. I loved your statement on that. Paris would be an awesome place to live. Great food & fashion. Vera Wang is such a superior consistent fashion designer. I never learned how to swim either. HaHaHa

    1. Well, it's not really a quote, but a line from "Amazing". Ha it's funny but I get a ton of inspirational quotes from song lyrics! I'm sure you'll find the right man soon, and when you do, he'll be able to buy you 5 Vera Wang wedding dresses and you can get married on his fancy yacht, and all will be right with the world!
