The Liebster Award

My sorority sister, Caroline, from This Styled Life nominated me for the Liebster Award. 

The purpose of this award is to help boast fellow bloggers with under 200 followers. 

If you get tagged, or feel like starting the trend for you and your blogger friends, here is how it works:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

Here is what Caroline wanted to know about her lovely 11 ladies:

1. Do you have a favorite outfit memory? Hmmm. This one is tough. For big events I usually take a lot of time meticulously planning my outfit. I think the memory that stands out most is my last Red Dress Gala my senior year at FSU. I wore a BCBG gown with a slit up the left leg. This dress made me feel extremely sexy without being too much. 

2. What has been your favorite fashion "score"? I don't have a favorite because I am easily tricked into buying things when they are on a temporary sale or promotion. My most recent score was a pair of polarized Ray Ban Club Masters. They retail for around $250 and I got them for $180!!! Thanks Ideeli!

3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 5 years is tough because I usually know where I hope to see myself only within the next few months. Things happen that change the course of your life and plans you may have had. I very much so like to go with the flow sometimes. For now I hope to be living a comfortable life with my man, Victor. I also hope that with his return from deployment very soon, I will have more of an opportunity to really dive head first into blogging since my personal photographer will be back! 

4. Why did you start your blog? I became EXTREMELY into watching beauty tutorials on YouTube. I still watch a bunch today. I thought hey I am pretty good at giving my opinion on products I like so why not try it out. It started out as a product review blog, but then quickly switched over to my daily outfits. I have not been extremely consistent with it as of lately, but that is all about to change :) 

5. If you had to pick your favorite clothing/accessory item, what would it be and why? I call them my Jesus sandals. They're from Steve Madden and I bought them almost three summers ago when I was interning in NYC. Not only have these bad boys crushed the pavement in NYC, they have traveled with me abroad and are my go to choice of footwear. They have been through hell and high water and I will be extremely sad when they are no longer functional. 

6. What is your favorite thing to cook/eat? I love to experiment in the kitchen. With my competition prep diet and eating more so out of convenience now a days I do not do much experimental cooking. I love food. I love pizza, burgers, icecream, cookies, sushi, you name it. I don't discriminate. I love all food. 

7. What do you like to do when you aren't blogging? Besides being a Netflix junky, I love lifting (side note I HATE cardio...which is why I always dread the gym), and I love online shopping. I would rather online shop then go to a mall any day. 

8. Is there anything you haven't done yet in life but want to? I think I have experienced a lot in my young life. Obviously the next steps I am looking forward to is having my own place, getting engaged/married, and starting a family. Obviously only one of these three options is in the near future.

9. Where do you find yourself shopping the most? ONLINE. And Vitamin Shoppe. 

10. Do you prefer to dress casually or dress up? Dress up for sure. I love everything about it. The hair, the makeup, the outfit. The nails. Everything. I love getting all dressed up because I get pretty scrub-ish in the gym. 

11. Which season is your favorite for fashion & beauty purposes? I honestly love them all. Each season comes and goes and I'm like oh I love winter the best...I love spring the best..etc etc. While South Florida doesn't allow much room for seasonal changes, I still love being able to play with color palettes and what not. 

Here are my nominees. Some are brand spankin' new blogs while others should have way more of a cult following:
