I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by McKenna of Closet Bouquets! I honestly didn’t know what this award was for until I began reading up on it today, but I am beyond excited and happy to be recognized by a fellow blogger!! It turns out that the Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to discover new blogs and possibly to gain more notoriety and/or followers!!
Now, I have found various versions of the Liebster rules, so I’m not quite sure which to follow. But I will answer the 11 questions McKenna wrote for me and her fellow nominees, then I will write 11 questions of my own for my nominees to answer! The idea is to nominate blogs you enjoy reading and which have less than 1000 followers! That way, more people can be introduced to new bloggers!
Questions for Me:
Why do you blog?
I blog because I enjoy documenting my outfits and getting feedback from others. I am inspired by everything — people on the street, the scenery, magazines, blogs. I hope that through my blog I can inspire others! I also enjoy writing so this blog gives me the opportunity to do a little bit of that along with my outfit posts!
What is your favorite blog to follow?
I follow so many blogs it’s unreal! I love the mega-famous fashion blogs like Fashion Toast, Sincerely Jules, We Wore What and The Blonde Salad. I also really enjoy aMUSEher! I really like her style, her hair and all of her photos!! (I could list so many more favorites, but the list would never end!)
Where do you blog at?
I put my posts together in my room! I sit on my bed and watch Laguna Beach or the O.C. and just work! My room is my little slice of heaven.
If you could change the color of your bedroom right now, what would you change it to?
Right now my room is a light blue. If I were to re-paint right now, I think I might go with a pastel peach color or a burnt orange/rust color. I may even choose another color to create an accent wall!
What is your favorite healthy snack?
I’m a vegetarian, so I’d like to think that most of my snacks are healthy, but my favorite is bananas or anything with peanut butter. While it may be high in calories, it is still pretty good for you!
Most of the pictures on your phone are of?
This is going to sound weird, but most of my pictures are of power lines. There’s something about the structure of the towers and all of the lines that I really like. There’s are also just a lot of screenshots of clothing or outfits I’ve found online that I like!
What is your favorite fashion tip to live by?
It’s hard for me to have a favorite. I think I have two favorites. The first was from my dad and it didn’t necessarily apply to fashion, but he always said, “Don’t care what other people think of you.” My other tip is similar. It is, “Dress for yourself and no one else.” Some girls and women may dress for men, but I dress for myself. I like what I like and luckily I’ve found a boyfriend who likes my style. It’s important to stay true to yourself, especially when it comes to fashion. If you love what you’re wearing, you’ll feel more confident.
Piece of clothing that you have had the longest?
I have a lot of my dad’s flannels that I stole from his closet. So while I haven’t had them for too long, he had them for quite some time before me.
Flowy or structured?
Flowy all the way! I love big over-sized tops. But I do like structure sometimes too!!
What is your favorite flower?
I love all sorts of flowers, but my favorite as of right now would have to be poppies. I would love to go somewhere with large poppy fields to take pictures for my blog!!
Where is your thinking spot?
I think everywhere! I can be in the car, in my bed or outside and I’ll think of an idea for an outfit post or I’ll think of something I need to do so I’ll make a note in my phone or on paper. I like to keep sticky notes by my bed because I always think of something that I need to do in the morning. If I don’t write it down, I won’t remember.
