Liebster Award

        I am super excited because one of my fellow bloggers Hunter has nominated me for the Liebster Award which was created by bloggers to bring attention to up and coming bloggers with great potential but not a lot of followers. I love this idea because I am always looking for new ways to get my blog out to other people who might enjoy it and at the same time find ways to connect with others who are similar to me! The main idea is that you nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and ask them to list 11 random facts about themselves and give them 11 questions to answer.
        As I mentioned before Hunter from Prep on a Budget nominated me. She writes about affordable designer pieces, new trends she's loving and provides other great tips for us young adults trying to find our way in the world, so please check out her site. Thanks again Hunter! xoxo


Here are my 11 random facts about myself:
Okay, now to answer my questions....

1. What genre of books/movies do you like?
In regards to books I love a good series because it keeps me occupied for a long time. I just finished both the Sookie Stackhouse series (which the show True Blood was based off of) and Game of Thrones (which I highly recommend). I'm pretty open to all movies, but I'm not a big romantic comedy fan (I know, blasphemy). Give me a good old superhero movie and I'm all set!

What trend are you loving?
As of this moment I'm digging the holographic trend I saw in two of my fashion magazines. I just bought a super cute holographic clutch in H&M and it added such personality to my outfits. 

Where is my ideal vacation?
Both Hawaii and Italy are on my bucket list. Hawaii because I'm a beach girl and I'd love to have that ultimate vacation where the waters are beautiful and theres so many fun things to see and do. Italy because I'm 75% Italian so to visit my roots and eat amazing food in Italy is a dream of mine. 

Navy or Pink?
Navy. I'm a little bit of a tom boy when it comes to clothes, I've been a navy fan forever. Plus it goes with almost everything! In my opinion, navy is better than black.

Who inspires you the most?
My mom is my best friend. We love to shop together and plan outfits. She's never afraid of bright colors or big statement pieces, and her bravery has rubbed off on me. Basically, we're always willing to try anything once and she inspires me to step out of my comfort zone in regards to fashion...and in life!

What type of music do you like?
I'm such an old lady when I comes to music, I'm always behind on the latest hits and artists. This is probably due to the fact that my car radio is always set to the classic rock or oldies stations. I've seen Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi in concert and I don't think much could top either of their performances. But... once November comes along it's strictly Christmas music till New Years.

What store do you find yourself shopping at constantly?
I'm a J Crew girl through and through. I've never found something I didn't love when I entered the store. J Crew is basically a style representation of me! However, whenever I hit the mall I also always hit up Macy's. I swear by Macy's coupons and have gotten a lot of great designer items for a discount there. 

What's your guilty pleasure movie or TV show?
I've been watching Survivor since season 1 and I've never missed an episode. I know it's weird but I just really enjoy the game. I'd love to apply one day but I know I would never be able to handle not showering or eating for a month... I get that hangry feeling after a couple of  hours haha!

Whats your favorite animal?
Obviously Misa is my favorite animal. I named my blog after her and once you see her chubby face you could never love another animal more than her.
Isn't she precious?!
What is your favorite dessert?
I'm a sucker for ice cream, which is another reason why I love summer so much! The heat is a perfect excuse to stop and get a cone. 

Why did you start blogging?
I had so many fashion idea's in my head that it felt right to get my idea's out there. It has helped me organize my thoughts and share my life experiences. I was definitely due to take on a new project and give myself a new hobby now that I am done with school so I can feel like I am still doing something with my life. It's nice to see people reading and responding positively to what I put out there!

My Nominees: 
Rachel at Makeshift Munch
Anna from Stitch Fox Blog


Since I am new to the blogging world I am still exploring other peoples blogs as well. I know I am supposed to nominate 11 people but at the moment, I cant because I'm only following a couple myself that have less than 200 followers. Plus some of the people I would have nominated have already been nominated and wrote about it already! In the future I hope to continue to highlight other peoples blogs that I love and discover! 

So for the 6 that I did nominate, here are your questions:

1. Who is your favorite designer and why?
2. What are your best tips for saving money on purchases?
3. On your perfect day, what do you do?
4. What is your favorite food?
5. Whats that one fashion item you would love to afford but currently cannot?
6. What trend are you most excited about this fall?
7. Whats your favorite magazine?
8. Favorite item in your closet currently?
9. Name 3 words that describe you.
10. What is your favorite food?
11. Why did you choose to start a blog?

Now it's up to you 6 to nominate other people blogs who inspire you! Make sure you create a post with 11 random facts about yourself, answer my 11 questions and add questions for your new nominees!

Thanks again Hunter for the Nom!
xoxo
