2017 Liebster Award

Hey y’all! Today I have some very exciting news to share! I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! This is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers to help each other grow. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Each nominee has to write ten facts about themselves, answer ten questions written by the blogger who nominated them, and write ten questions for the bloggers they nominate to answer!

I am so excited to be nominated for this award. I was nominated by Kayla from the blog KayBella. KayBella is a fashion/lifestyle blog with content that is actually pretty similar to mine! She posts things like door tours, seasonal essentials, outfit guides, and beauty favorites! Check her out!

Ten Random Facts About Me

  1. I am a freshman at NC State University and I am majoring in Fashion Textile Management and looking to double in Communications Media
  2. I have a dog named Lilly

3. This one is a really weird one, but I think every number has it’s own color. My boyfriend does not believe me, but I do. There’s an actual condition called color synesthesia. Some people see the colors so vividly that they can easily find one “2” in a sea of “5’s!” Mine is not this vivid, but I promise, in my mind, every number has a color. Some of the colors are more obvious, but they all have a color. I have thought it since I was a child, and the colors never change. My color/number list is:

1= yellow, 2= black/blue, 3= orange, 4= blue, 5= green, 6= pink, 7= purple, 8= red, 9= red

Combining the number to create double digit numbers like “35” become a little confusing to me because rather than the whole number having one color, each number (3 and 5) has its own (orange and green).

4. I hate taking pictures. Well, maybe it is selfies that I hate. If you have ever tried to take a group selfie with me, then you know how award I become in that situation. I literally get so worried about if were smiling or doing the kissy face or sticking our tongues out- it makes me panic! I also feel uncomfortable with 9/10 photos that I take with any photographer because I get awkward and do not know what face to make, especially if bystanders are watching!

5. I’m not very social. That sounds weird, especially since I am so open and active on social media. When it comes to real life, I pretty much keep to myself. I’m quite and shy until I get to know you. It takes a while for me to really open up to people and chances are, I will not talk to you unless you talk to me first. Approaching people absolutely terrifies me and I panic about what I should say. I am quite in groups because most of the time, I am not comfortable speaking out. Blogging and YouTube is a way for me to become more outgoing, and I probably love it because it is a way to openly express myself to a brand audience without being out of my comfort zone.

6. I am an only child

7. Miley Cyrus is my favorite singer. She has always been my favorite. From Hannah Montana, to Can’t be Tamed Miley, to Wrecking Ball Miley, I can’t stop won’t stop loving her!

8. I love conspiracy theories. Yep! I believe the titanic was planned, that Beyoncè did not give birth to her first born, and that we are living in a parallel universe different from the one we were in a few years ago! I watch conspiracy videos on YouTube all the time! My favorite ones are from Kendall Rae and Shane!

9. I am a night owl. There is rarely a night that I go to sleep before 1am and I write most of my blog posts at night!

10. I take naps. A lot. Probably because I stay up so late at night.

Ten Questions from KayBella:

1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

My favorite thing about blogging is being able to express myself and share my love for fashion with others.

2. What is your go to Social Media platform and why?

My all time favorite social media platform is Instagram because it is where I started and I love to look at everyones photos and share my own!

3. Where is your favorite place to visit?

This past summer I went to Islamorada in the Florida Keys and it is probably my favorite trip I have ever been on. I vlogged for my first time ever while I was there and you can check it out here!

4. What is your advice for anyone starting a blog?

Focus on the quality of your followers over the quantity. Followers that care are always better.

5. What was the last blog post you read and loved?

This is a hard question because although I wish I did, I don’t actually read other blogs much. I know, I know. I’m a terrible member of the blogger community. I’m trying to read more blogs because I do feel more inspired after reading them. The blogger that has been inspiring me the most lately is Ashley Brooke with Style Logix. I’m mostly obsessing over her look book YouTube videos, but I am also incredibly inspired by her because she makes monthly online magazines.

6. What is your favorite animal?

My favorite animal is my boyfriend Doug’s dog Hank. Not dogs in general, but Hank. Actually, Hank is my boyfriend. I know you probably cannot see me in that middle picture, but I promise I’m there. I’m under Hank because he is smothering me with love!

7. What is you favorite food?

This is a really realllyyy hard question. Most of the time, I love one food until I hate it. Right now, my favorite foods {on campus} are Chick-fil-A (specifically breakfast), açaí bowls, and Chinese food. Oh, and ice cream. Right now I love these foods way too much. So much that I used 10 out of 12 meal swipes for the week by Tuesday. Yep. It’s actually hilarious how much I go get food. I was in line at Howling Cow ordering ice cream late Tuesday night. The cashier asked how I wanted to pay and I said, “meal plan if I still have any swipes,” because I was unsure how many I had used. She held her breath and swiped the card. “Oh,” she said, “You’re good to go your late night swipe started at 9:00!”… “I meant for the week,” I said. “But its only Tuesday.” “I know,” I said with shame because I had already used 10 swipes.

8. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

Blogging, YouTube, social media, fashion magazines- all my favorite things to do and the number one reason I want my job to be in this industry.

9. What is your favorite song right now?

I do not really listen to music a ton, mostly because I hardly ever leave campus and drive with the radio. One of my favorite songs recently has been Make Me (Cry) by Noah Cyrus featuring Labrinth.

10. What is you favorite movie that you can never get sick of watching?

This is another really hard question for me to answer. I love a ton of movies like Sex in the City, Friends with Benefits, He’s Just Not That Into You, the Twilight Saga, etc.
