The Liebster Awards

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Jill from Favor the Brave, was kind enough to give me a Liebster Award. If you don’t know (I didn’t) the Liebster Award is given to bloggers with under 200 Google Friend Connect (GFC) followers to help them promote and share their blog in the blogging community. This a such an honor, since I am always looking for ways to promote my blog. Thank you so much Jill!!

The rules are: you tell your nominees you nominated them, you answer the questions, and you link back to the lovely blog that nominated you.

There is also a list of questions we have to answer to go along with it... 

1. Which blogger inspires you or you simply just love and cannot get enough of?
I am fan of so many blogs! Seriously if you talk about fashion, you are my best friend! One blog that I frequent for style and writing is Hems for Her.  Katie is a real woman, who shares her trials and tribulations. She is honest, funny and stylish! I love reading all her stories!!

2. What is your horoscope sign?
Gemini… but it has never governed my life. I do not follow astrology, but those who do can usually pin point my sign immediately… take that as you will :D

3. What are two quotes you love?
" I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life." -Elsie de Wolfe

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

4. What is one thing this summer you must do, no ifs or buts about it?
Spend more quality time with friends and family. It is so easy for me to get caught up in my day to day life, I really need to nurture those special relationships I have.

5. What are 3 words your friends would use to describe you?

#1 Outspoken (and any variation of that) 
#2 Strong Willed 
#3 Stylish (At least I hope)

6. What is one dream you hope to achieve in your life journey?

Oh, what a loaded question! How boring would I be if I only had ONE dream! I have many, many dreams I hope to achieve. I want to travel the world for one. I want to take in the rich cultures of other societies. I want to be a fashion icon. I want to start my own charity. But if I never get to do any of these things, I want to know that I tried my best to be the best wife, daughter, sister & mother I could be.

7. What is your favorite dish to eat?

I love food, but I hate calories…. That’s a losing battle :D If I could only eat one last meal it would be my grandmother’s fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. It fills me physically and emotionally ;)

8. Who is one person that inspires you in your life?

The person who has changed my life and my entire way of thinking has to be my husband. He is a dreamer and his brain works in ways I have never seen before. He lives his life like he is the exception and never the rule. He has taught me how to dream, In a really big way! He has convinced me to move to Hollywood so he can become a famous Movie/TV producer… that’s nuts right? But I believe in him, because he’s just that type of person. He really does make me want to be the best person I can be!

9. What is one thing you are looking forward to this fall?

Fall is my favorite season for most things! I love the crisp air, the rich foods and the fashions it brings! Fall is the perfect time to layer clothing and showing off a multitude of garments. It’s not so hot that you only want to wear one thing, and not too cold that you have to cover it all up with a giant coat! I love the deep jewel tones we see in the fall and all those luxurious textures too!

10. Favorite television shows that start up in the fall or now summer?

I openly hate reality TV, but I secretly still watch it :/ I love Project Runway and it just premiered last week! I also love this new show called Craft Wars… but mostly because I want to go on it and I think I would whoop up on the competition :D

11. What are the top 5 places you want to travel?
#1 Italy
#2 Indonesia
#3 The UK
#4 Thailand
#5 France

So fun. I love Katie too, she's fabulous. I recently caught a few minutes of Craft Wars before my husband made me change the channel. It's definitely something I'll have to sneak in when he's not around! New follower, let's keep in touch! :)
