Liebster Award

I've been graciously nominated for the Liebster ("dearest" in German) Award by my blogger friend, Zobia. The award is given to a blogger who may not have many followers (200 or less) but deserves recognition. Here are the guidelines for those nominated:

  • Post 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions the nominator has asked about you.
  • Create 11 more questions to ask bloggers you nominate. 
  • Choose 11 bloggers to nominate, you can't nominate the person who nominated you. These lucky bloggers must be told (through email/comment).

I'm very excited and honored to participate in this award! So, here I go! 

11 Facts About Myself 
    1. I must have dessert after lunch and dinner.
    2. Fat cats make me smile and giggle. Their bodies amuse me!
    3. I've dreamt of living in Brooklyn, NYC.
    4. I believed in Santa Clause until 8-9. I really did try to hold on to that magical feeling.
    5. I hate shopping at Wal-Mart.
    6. I'm a vegetarian. Not a vegan because I can't part with my dairy and Tuna fish.
    7. I love the feeling the excitement and high adrenaline
    8. I feel most comfortable in a feminine dress.
    9. I want my next car to be pink or light yellow.
    10. I hate coffee and tea, there I said it, please still love me.
    11. A witty back and forth conversation is exciting to me.

Zobia's 11 Questions For Me
  1. Why did you start blogging? I wanted to feel passionate and develop a larger sense of purpose. Blogging has allowed me to learn more about the fashion/beauty/vintage world while creating a platform to express my outlooks
  2. Where do you see your blog in your future? My goal is to have a well rounded blog with emphasis on fashion. beauty, recipes, DIY projects, and frequent outfit posts. My dream blog would be one like Cupcakes and Cashmere, Lauren Conrad, and Keiko Lynn
  3. Will you continue to blog as you get older? Yes! While I'm maturing and navigating through new phases of my life, I want my blog to reflect that. I hope my readers will grow older with me!
  4. What's your blog's inspirations? Everyday life, my favorite blogs (mentioned in Question #2), fashion and womens' magazines, and my love for the vintage years.
  5. If you could live in any country in the world, what would it be and why? I would love to live in Italy for a year or two. I want to be immersed in another culture, learn a new language, and explore more than what's already in my life. My Mother's side is from Italy so there's a huge internal push to see the "motherland".
  6. What's one thing that's absolutely essential to you every day? A shower. I don't feel ready for the world if I havn't taken a nice shower. 
  7. Cheescake or Apple Pie? Apple pie all the way! I detest cheesecake (I'll eat the fruit topping on top though).
  8. What's one of your favorite quotes? "A day without laughter is a day not worth living" by Charlie Chaplin.
  9. Do you have any other blogs? Nope.
  10. Describe yourself in 3 words. Optimist, spicy, determined
  11. How do you show your personality through your blog? Through my style of writing and how I set up a post through empathy, wit, and personal stories. When appropriate, I'll write like how I talk. I also showcase my sense of style through outfit posts which I believe is a reflection of my personality.
