The Leibster Award

I’m sure some of you will have heard of it, but if you haven’t, the Leibster Award is a way of bloggers nominating each other, in a bid to get to know other new bloggers, which is so great! The sea of bloggers is vast and this makes it so much easier, and its interesting getting to learn something new about the person behind the blog!

Once nominated, you must answer questions that the person who has nominated you suggests, and continue the process (rules below). Thank you to Emily via her blog The Little Chronicles for nominating me! Here are the questions she asked me:

Why did you start blogging in the first place?

I started my blog as a way to express myself. I have been so focused on school for the past years of my life that I really did not have any hobbies, so starting my blog and Instagram was a big leap of faith for me. I wanted to be able to share my creativity and love of all things beauty, fashion and travel. I am really so blessed by the support that I’ve gotten along the way!

What is your mission for your blog?

I am still deciding on which direction to take my blog (beauty? fashion? travel? a mix of all?) but I hope to be able to brighten everyone’s days with my posts. I want to spread positivity and share what I love with others!

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspiration for my blog has to be other growing bloggers! It is such a great community and everyone is so supportive of each other. If I ever feel in a rut, I just start searching for new bloggers and always find such great inspiration for new posts!

Where do you see your blog in the future?

I hope to have more time to devote to my blog and be able to post multiple times a week. I would LOVE to work with brands to share products that I sincerely enjoy. I want to redesign my website and invest in more lenses for my camera to provide the best content possible.

If you were given a free ticket to any place right now, where would you travel and why?

I would have to pick somewhere warm and tropical like Hawaii. I think it would be so relaxing to lay by the ocean when it still isn’t too hot outside! Plus, there is so much wildlife to explore on the islands. I would love to go to Kauai!

What was the last blog post you read about, and who was it by?

I am so obsessed with Amber Fillerup’s blog BarefootBlonde. Her latest post was about the winners of her giveaway meeting up with her in NYC. Her pictures are always gorgeous and of the best quality. I aspire for my blog to be like hers one day!

If you had to give one, what would you best skincare/beauty tip be?

 Be nice to your skin!! Take your makeup off every night, do not tug, pull or pick at your skin, and use gentle products that will help clarify and cleanse your face.

What is your most annoying habit?

I get overwhelmed very easily which makes it difficult for me to get things done. This is very frustrating as I typically have a very full “to-do” list for each day but I am working on doing better!

What is at the top of your current “me” shopping wishlist and why? 

The newest Tarte blush palette! I have been so obsessed with the blush palette from Too Faced that I cannot wait to buy another one. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on it soon!!

What would you say your mantra/moto for life is?

Let It Be. I’ve loved this Beatles’ song for years and the message of letting go things that don’t matter. It is a great reminder to not sweat the small stuff.

What is the last song that was played on your iPod?

This is a tough one since I haven’t used my iPod in years but my favorite song currently has to be “No” by Meghan Trainor. Is it just me or does it remind you of 90’s Britney Spears? The beat is so catchy and I love to jam to it on my way to school in the morning. It’s the perfect empowering song for a Monday morning!

Now, here are my questions for you!!

  1. How did you choose the name for your blog?
  2. Who is your biggest encourager?
  3. What is the best quality about yourself?
  4. What quote inspires you the most?
  5. What has been your best vacation?
  6. What is your favorite snack?
  7. Do you plan on taking another direction with your blog in the future?
  8. What is your favorite makeup/beauty product?
  9. Who are some other bloggers that you love?
  10. What is something you can’t live without?
  11. What is a goal you have set for yourself this year?
