A Liebster Award

Wednesday, April 24, 2013






Right smack dab in the middle of the week from hell, I received one of the sweetest comments from a reader and fellow blogger Mariah. She nominated me for a fun Liebster Award -- a great way to find new blogs and get to know bloggers you already follow a bit more. I couldn't be happier to participate and can't wait to pass it along to my nominees!

Here are the questions:

1.) Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging when I was working a very mundane desk job and desperately needed a creative outlet. At the time I was in a VERY corporate environment and couldn't even express myself through fashion. So nights and weekends were my time to dress however I wanted. I started to document my outfits and it grew from there.
 
2.) What kind of blog do you have?
My blog revolves mostly around fashion and trends, although I do post about food once in a while too. 
 
3.) What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love being able to express myself through my clothes. I like to write the way I would talk to you in person and I think that really helps engage my readers. I also love the blogging community. I've met so many interesting women in the year and a half since I started my blog.
 
4.) If you had a super power what would it be?
I wish I could fly. How awesome would it be to up and fly to work in the morning (hello, never having to take public transportation EVER again!) Or zipping out of state to visit friends and family on a whim. Ugh, if only.
  
5.) Top five favorite songs at the moment?
"Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke 
"Last Love Song" by ZZ Ward 
"Lego House" by Ed Sheeran
"I Wish" by Skee-Lo
"The Weight" by The Band  
  
6.) City or country?
 Both! I grew up in a tiny town in Central New York and loved it. But always knew I needed to be in a city. That said, I still like to escape back to the country every few months and I totally plan to move to the 'burbs once I get married and have kids.
 
7.) Where would you most like to visit?
Someday I hope to explore all of Europe. 
  
8.) What are two of your goals for 2013?
My goal as a blogger is to get back to posting Monday through Friday. I also want to get involved with (or create) a foundation that mentors young girls. 
  
9.) Who is your style icon?
Jessica Alba & Kate Middleton. Half of my closet is dedicated to trends and the other half is simple and classic.
   
10.)  Top two favorite books you've recently read?
 I'm rereading The Great Gatsby in anticipation of the newest remake of it. I also just purchased Madame Chic and can't wait to dig in.
  
11.) Favorite beauty product and why?
Now according to the rules, I must choose my favorite bloggers to answer the questions above and then list 11 random facts about myself. So here goes:
Random Facts about me:
 
I'm the oldest (and wisest) of three children in my family. I'm also the shortest at 5'9".
In high school, one of my nicknames was Chewbacca because I had hairy arms. That I now wax.
I need something sweet after every savory meal I eat.
I was a two-sport NCAA athlete in college: volleyball & diving.
 I would love to live in another city before I "settle down" but I'm afraid I'd miss Boston too much.
I have arthritis in my right toes. Sexy, huh?
I'm kind of afraid of heights but I REALLY want to go skydiving.
I LOVE the ocean but had a scary experience body boarding in Hawaii and now I'm terrified of undertoe/drowning.
I also have an irrational fear of sinkholes.
 Fresh flowers in my apartment instantly put me in a good mood.
My family is the nuttiest group of people I know. And I adore them more than anything.

   
xoxo,

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination. I loved getting to know more about you. I also LOVE Jessica Alba & Kate Middleton. I think that if you move too far from Boston, you'd miss it terribly.
