Recently, I was nominated for the Liebster Award - not to be confused with the Lobster Award that my Mac keeps autocorrecting it to. It's my first nomination as a blogger and I am SO beyond excited about it. The Liebster Award is used to bring awareness to new bloggers in the bloggiverse and is a really cool way to discover some of your future fave blogs. My nomination came from Christine over at Wandering Through Life.
What is your biggest goal in life?
It's cliche, but I want to be happy and successful in life. Success, of course, is measured differently for different people. I want to be doing something I love, living comfortable & healthily, with those I love around me. Also, a yacht would be nice.
What is your favorite day of the week and why?
Although I do love me a good Friday and Saturday night, my favorite day of the week is Sunday. It's the perfect day to reset, refresh, and gear up for the week ahead.
Who is your favorite Harry Potter character?
Now, don't shun me for this, but I actually don't have one. I've only seen a couple of the movies and read one of the books. I know, I know. Don't worry, my fiancé has already guaranteed that an HP marathon is in my near future.
Who is your favorite YouTuber?
I'm not much of a YouTube user. Does Matt Bellassai fall under the category of a "YouTuber"? Because #WhineAboutIt basically gives me life.
Where in the world would you most like to visit/live?
It's impossible for me to pick just one place to visit. Blame it on my severe case of wanderlust. I'll share my most recent list of six places I'm dying to visit: here. Where would I most like to live? Nashville. Any friends reading this post right now are probably chuckling knowing they could have guessed that one.
What is a hidden talent of yours?
I can raise my right eyebrow by itself. Is that a talent or just plain weird? I'm not entirely sure.
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning/for a night out?
If I really gave it an honest try on any given weekday morning I could get ready and out the door in 30 minutes to head to work. This would require me giving up all the time I spend sipping and enjoying my coffee, watching GMA, and refreshing Twitter every 10 minutes. A night out? 45 minutes; an hour to be on the safe side. 1 1/2 - 2 hours if I have to curl my hair. It's tough out there for a girl.
Why did you start a blog?
I wanted an outlet to share thoughts, ramblings, outfit posts, etc. Also, let's be real: sometimes 140 characters just isn't enough. #sorrytwitter
Who is your biggest inspiration?
I have more than one; my mom and my grandma. They've both played major roles in helping me become who I am today, and together they make up a woman that I aspire to be.
Where do you see yourself/your blog going in the future?
I'm a planner when it comes to most things, but I've never been the "5 year life plan" type of gal. I probably couldn't tell you where I'll be/or where my blog will be a year from now. Or even a week from now. I'm open to life and its opportunities and trust that my blog and I will end up right where we're supposed to be when we get there. No limits, y'all.
