Thank you so much Brittany from Suburb Chic for nominating me for this award! I love her blog and her super chic “mommy” style! Check out her post here.
The Liebster Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with 200 followers or less.When you are nominated for the Leibster Awards there are a few simple rules you must follow. Here are the rules, yo!
1. Post 11 random facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions the nominator asked.
3. Nominee should come up with 11 new nominees and 11 questions for your picks to answer.
4. Nominees should have less than 200 followers and should link back to you on their Liebster blog post.
 
Random facts about me:
1. I wear size 8 shoe. HAHAHA they’re supposed to be random right?
2. I secretly have baby fever, but I am choosing to focus on my first child and my health first. But oh are there times I miss my belly!
3. I have 3 tattoos and I am thinking about getting a 4th.
4. I am obsessed with DIY projects, although I am not actually very good at them, but one day!
5. I have 7 piercings (but nothing too crazy, don’t get any ideas!)
6. I have an obsession with heels, but I hardly ever wear them :-/ I’m a wimp!
7. I hate to do my hair, which is a little backwards since I have long curly hair. Definitely not the type of hair that you can just leave be, ugh.
8. I love lingerie! I have quite a collection, but I don’t wear any of it. I just like pretty things. Plus according to the hubby, it’s just going to come off anyway 😉
9. I am “style” lazy. What I mean is, I have tons of accessories and I just hardly wear them. An entire jewlry box of unopened jewelry sits on my vanity. I think I may just start giving them away as gifts. It’s not that I don’t like them or that I don’t like to wear them, I just don’t think about putting them on in the morning. I’m too busy getting my son ready for day care, my hubby out of bed and getting out the door to work. Plus the last time I wore a necklace my son (he’s 1) ripped it right off my neck because it was shiny. Needless to say that piece had seen it’s last day! HAHA! Maybe once he a little older I’ll get back into it 😉
10. I am obsessed with my cell phone. It holds the key to my life!
11. My hubby and I have been married for a little over 2 years and together for a little over 8.
OK – I hope that was random enough? Now onto the questions. I didn’t see B’s q’s so I did the same ones 🙂
Here goes:
  1. Favorite dish? Umm, food? I just love food! I can’t think of any one dish that I love more than another.
  2. What’s your least favorite trend? Ugh this is a hard one. I’m not too fond of some of the “veiled” looks I’ve seen (a la Rick Owens) because to me it just looks like a giant sheet. Not flattering at all and so many layers of them, how can that be comfortable? I’d probably get lost and tangled in it and then fall on my butt! Lol! And the models looked so mad! I guess I would be mad if someone did that to my hair too hahaha jkjk!
  3. What’s your go to pieces in your closet? Oh this one is easy. A blazer. Pair with jeans, leggings or slacks and it always looks put together.
  4. Do you prefer heels or flats? Flats mostly or even tennis shoes actually. I have a love hate relationship with heels. I love them! And have quite a collection, but I am a heel wimp and no matter the heel height my feet hurt.
  5. Why do you blog? I love blogging. I love the community it brings and being able to share my work/thoughts/dreams with others.
  6. What’s your favorite brand? I don’t have one. If I see something I like then I like it and that’s all.
  7. First place you will shop if you won the lotto? If I won the lotto? Well, I don’t know if I’d go shopping for clothes, accessories, etc. but instead probably do something for my family. Maybe “shop” for a family vacation?
  8. Favorite movie? That’s easy, they are on my FFF list. Beauty and the Beast and Dirty Dancing of course!
  9. Are you a picky eater? Sort of. When I was younger and in my teens I ate no vegetables but as i get older and think more about my health and eat a more of them. I am still exploring different tastes, but at least now I am more open to them.
  10. When was the last time you shopped? Today? I shop for makeup all the time. The last time I shopped for clothes? That was around Christmas time.
