Liebster Award.

Feeling extra thankful today for my new found friends in blog land. I have met many supportive ladies and am loving how things are going for me right now. There will be some exciting changes around here in just a couple weeks. I can't wait to share with everyone! Anyways, I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award. The goal of a Liebster Award is to generate attention toward up and coming bloggers. Typically those nominated have 200 or less followers. Upon getting nominated there are a few rules, but as you know I enjoy breaking rules.

The rules are as follows-

  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger

  2. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you

  3. Provide 11 random facts about yourself

  4. List some bloggers with fewer than 200 followers that you really feel deserve a little blogging love!

  5. Let all of the bloggers know you have nominated them.  You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you!

  6. Post 11 questions for the bloggers you have nominated to answer.

Here's the thing friends. I have a few too many bloggers to nominate. Mine are all a part of the Her Campus Blogger Network. I am encouraging ordering you all to visit the network and check out some of bloggers on the list. The blogs are categorized by their primary posts. Looking for a fun DIY project? Click on a blog in the DIY section and get in touch with your creative side. All of the bloggers are so amazing and I just love reading their stuff. I hope you do, too! While you're there you may as well check out the rest of the website. I absolutely love Her Campus and what they stand for. Check them out, friends.

Moving on- I would like to send a big old Thank you over to Heather at Coconut & Cotton for nominating me. Check her out and tell her I sent ya. Or not... just go. Heather has provided some questions for me to answer so let's get to answering.

1. Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog because I was hoping to someday join the Her Campus Blogger Network. I also was hopeful there would be a day I could look back at these pages and remember all of the amazing things in my life. Whether they are good or bad, I want to remember everything.

2. What’s your favorite lip product?

My favorite lip product is a simple chapstick made by Avon. It is called Intense Moisture Lip Therapy and it is really the only product I use regularly.

3. Do you have curly, wavy, or straight hair?

My hair is stick straight. So lame, right? During the summer months when I am sun kissed and salty my hair has a pretty nice curl wave to it. Other than that I am as boring as they come, folks.

4. What’s your favorite movie?

If I was trying to look like an adult I would tell you my favorite movie of all time is Remember The Titans. If we are being completely honest, which we are, I would tell you my favorite movie is Despicable Me.

5. Who inspires you the most?

This question is always so difficult for me because I am constantly drawing inspiration from everyone and everything I can get my hands on. I think everyone we meet is for a reason and we come across certain situations for a reason as well. However, since I don’t want to completely shy away from the question I will say my cousin. My cousin Katherine is one of my best friends and has the most amazing heart of anyone I have ever met.


6. When do you blog? Day? Night? On your lunch break?

I typically blog whenever I have a free moment. Right now it is while I am nannying and my little chick is watching Strawberry Shortcake. Usually it is in the morning. Or I will write a post at night and schedule it for the next morning.

7. If you could only wear one of the following which would you choose? Rings, bracelets, or necklaces.

Rings. No question. Ring power forever.

8. What’s your favorite foundation/powder?

MAC face and body foundation. Heaven in a damn bottle my friends. Heaven.

9. Describe your perfect vacation.

My perfect vacation would come with a beach and some cocktails. There would also be ample time for exploring the culture and making friends with the locals.

10. If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

Anywhere in the world!? It is a really big world out there. Yikes. Santorini, Greece. Who’s taking me?

11. What’s your middle name?

Marie. C'mon parents, you couldn't get a little creative?

As for the random facts. How about 20 instead of 11? Over achiever, I know. Find those gems here.

A big ol' Thank you to all my new friends!



  1. I will totally go with you to Greece! It'd be a dream come true!

  2. I really need to get my lips in order. Chapping is NO joke around these parts. And can I come to Greece with you please?

  3. You can absolutely come to Greece with me. The more the merrier! As for the chapping.. I smiled at the Starbucks barrista and they cracked. Is it summer yet?


I love reading all of your comments! Keep 'em kind please! We respect the golden rule around here.
