Liebster Award!

Hey everyone! I'm very excited to be doing this post today! I was kindly nominated by several people for this award: 

It has taken me a while since I was first nominated to do this post as there are several parts required and even though I know there are so many new bloggers out there, it can be difficult to find them and to find ones that haven't done this yet! But I want to thank all of you for nominating me, it was very exciting each time and I have found some great new bloggers through it!

The Award:

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

Here are the rules for receiving this award:

1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You must pick 11 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
4. You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

Since I was nominated by several bloggers, I decided to choose a couple of questions from each of you to add up to 11 since it has taken me so long to be able to do this post. I hope that's okay with everyone!

1. What made you want to start a blog?
I've been watching the beauty community on YouTube for years and even started a blog a couple of years ago, but it didn't last long. I've wanted to be a part of something that I'm really interested in and find other people who share the same interests. As for why I started it exactly when I did: I honestly have a lot of free time on my hands because I'm a college grad looking for a job and figured that in the time I'm not filling out applications and sending in resumes I could be having fun building something of my own.

2. Favorite YouTuber?
I'm going to break the rules and list several: Alex from HRH Collection, I basically want to be her, she seems like such a cool person, Tanya Burr from Pixi2woo, she is so fun and so gorgeous, and Jamie Barton who is a newer YouTuber but she has such a calming voice and is amazing at applying makeup. I could go on, but I wont :)

3. Favorite childhood memory?
I'm an only child so I kept myself occupied a lot by doing lots of crafts, which I loved, like making pottery, making pop-up story books, and trying paper mache. I also loved making Christmas cookies with my mom, having my family come over on Christmas Eve for our annual get-together and putting up my own little 4-foot Christmas tree in my room- I love Christmas, haha.

4. What was your first makeup item?
A mascara I stole from my mom, and then a concealer stick that I asked my mom to buy me, which I used with a sponge basically as a foundation on my forehead.

5. Do you have any funny or odd fears?
Blown up balloons. I hate it when they pop, it just scares the life out of me.

6. What's your favorite film and why?
I graduated with a film degree, so this is very difficult, but Atonement and The Philadelphia Story come to mind.

7. Favorite perfume?
Hands down, YSL Parisienne.

8. Favorite lip color?
I have yet to find the perfect product, but I love nude lips.

9. What's the last thing you bought?
Milk and a cute notebook for all of my blogging ideas and lists.

10. If you could have any fashion related item in the world right now, what would it be?
Hmm, probably a Celine Bag.

11. What is your favorite genre of film?
I'm more likely to watch a romantic comedy than anything else.

My questions for you:

  1. What is your favorite mascara?
  2. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
  3. What is an item on your beauty wishlist?
  4. Do you have any special talents? If so, what are they?
  5. What is your favorite type of vacation (mountains, beach, city, etc.) or what is a favorite vacation you've ever been on?
  6. What season do you prefer for fashion?
  7. How many different countries have you visited and name one you'd like to visit but haven't yet?
  8. What is your favorite brand of nail polish?
  9. What is your favorite makeup tool or brush?
  10. How would you describe your personality?
  11. What is your all time favorite accessory?
