Liebster Award

Half the reason I started blogging was because of the community out there and if you're a fellow blogger you know exactly what I'm talking about. Blogger girls are literally the best in the world (can we start that? #bloggergirlsbestintheworld) - they're not perfect and they sure don't pretend to be. They embrace their quirks and focus not only on improving themselves, but bringing other girls up with them. Its a very positive and encouraging community (and if you're not already a blogger I highly suggest you start one!).

I was so, so excited when I saw that Kristin from The Dixie Daisy nominated me for the Liebster Award - thank you so much Kristin it completely made my day!!

Here is how it works -

  1. You post 11 facts about yourself
  2. Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you, and then create an eleven-question set for the next group of nominees
  3. Choose eleven people to nominate and link them in the post
  4. Let your nominees know they've been tagged - and no tag-backs!
  5. Nominate blogs under 200 followers
Eleven facts about me - 

  1. I can't ride a bike
  2. I'm allergic to roses, well really the rose oil. It makes me break out in a bad rash (which really stinks when rose smelling beauty products are your favorite).
  3. I really, really don't like brown clothing but always go with the natural brown when it comes to shoes and handbags.
  4. I was raised Catholic and was very involved in my high school youth group. (#youthcouncilpresident y'all)
  5. I could drink my weight in Bojangles sweet tea, and prefer the stores on the eastern side of NC (different ownership and better quality ingredients!)
  6. I'm a finance major with a shopping problem. 
  7. I also really, really like using hashtags in every day conversation. #isthatweird #sorrynotsorry
  8. I've never not had a dog growing up. 
  9. I would pick a night of wine and Sweet Home Alabama over the club scene any day.
  10. I have a birth mark on my leg that looks like South America.
  11. My coozie collection can rival anyone out there - I keep them just about everywhere!  
Kristin's questions -

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I actually love where I live, so I would have to say North Carolina. 
  2. What do you like to do when you're bored? I love painting my nails - its one of my favorite past times. 
  3. What is your most loved purchase? The Anne Kline watch I bought myself for my 16th birthday. It was the first "nice" thing I bought myself and I still wear it every day.
  4. What is the last piece of clothing you bought? A new tee from Vineyard Vines - back to school shopping at it's finest.
  5. What is your favorite thing you did over the summer? The beach trips I took with my family! I was only able to get down a few times but each time was great.
  6. Where do you see yourself in five years? Hopefully with a great job, and possibly engaged.
  7. What is your go-to hairstyle? I love wearing my hair up in those donut buns, they are so easy to do and look fantastic!
  8. Do you wear more silver or gold jewelry? Definitely gold, which is funny because growing up I hated gold jewelry.
  9. What are your daily makeup essentials? Baby Skin primer, Covergirl foundation, Maybelline powder, Physicians Formula bronzer, Covergirl eyeshadow & liner, and I love Lorreal's mascara.
  10. What is your favorite store? Not going to lie, probably Trader Joes. 
My eleven questions -

  1. If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
  2. What's your favorite kind of drink?
  3. How do you relax?
  4. How often do you paint your nails?
  5. What's the best piece of advice you could give someone?
  6. What's your favorite thing to order at Starbucks?
  7. How would you describe your relationship with your BFF?
  8. Are you a early bird or a night owl?
  9. Who is your biggest girl crush?

  1. I loved reading your answers! I love the beach too. I only got one short trip in this summer, but it was so worth it!


  2. I also cannot ride a bike! And I use hashtags in real life conversation way more than I should. #oops

    Thanks for thinking of me!
