Happy Friday Ya’ll! I’m so excited to have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Jenn over at Crown Me in Glitter
! If you’ve never heard of the Liebster award, it’s an online recognition given by bloggers to other new bloggers for enjoying their work. The intent behind it is to award awesome, new up and coming blogs within our writing community.
I’ve been following Jenn’s cute lifestyle blog since I started blogging and she’s such a sweet person with a super adorable daughter! We also mutually share a love for Target, makeup, and all things sparkly, so we were pretty much destined to be blogger friends! Oh and she’s also a fellow Virginian! Please check her blog out here
if you haven’t already, and be sure and show her some blog love!
What is your favorite ice cream? It’s a close tie between Edy’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream or Breyer’s Hershey’s Caramel Kisses Ice Cream, although I’ll pretty much eat any type of ice cream. 🙂
What is your drink of choice at Starbucks? I’d buy a drink for the person behind me, because I don’t drink coffee! (I know, I know I’m such a minority)
If you could be any candy, what would you be and why? Reese’s Pieces- they’re pretty, delicious, and are that perfect mix of chocolate and peanut butter.
Who is your favorite Friends character!? (Please don’t tell me you don’t watch Friends!) Monica was/is my favorite character! She’s smart, down-to-earth, and she always kept me laughing! Also, we share that whole cleaning freak thing. 🙂
Favorite childhood memory? In general I loved growing up and playing on the farm at my grandparents house with all of my cousins and brothers. There was never a dull moment and I remember life was so carefree back then.
If you could only keep 5 material items for the rest of your life, what would they be? Wow, I always struggle with these types of questions. In keeping it really basic: notebook & pen, cell phone, a comfy outfit, mascara, and lipstick. Haha I realize that’s probably a horrible answer.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to!? Definitely the 1940’s for the women’s fashion.
Are you usually late, on time, or early? I’m usually 5-10 minutes early. I’m one of those who believes it’s disrespectful to show up late for things so unless it’s an emergency I’m always on time.
Summer or winter? Summer, definitely! Warm weather, cute clothes, the beach, I mean what’s not to love?!
What is your favorite thing to shop for? Makeup, of course! I’m such a girly-girl and I love just leisurely browsing the makeup aisles and looking at all the new products and colors out, and trying to come up with new makeup looks to try.
What is your favorite thing about blogging? Meeting so many amazing people from all parts of the world that I would have never met otherwise. It’s so cool to find out that so many others out there can relate to you and I really enjoy helping inspire others- whether it is through a makeup tutorial, a craft, a recipe, or though a post of encouragement, it’s such a rewarding feeling.
