 I was nominated by Cythnia from FoodieFoodMood, a great travel and food blog! Go check out her pop-culture inspired recipes (how good does Joey Tribiani’s Meatball Sub look???)
The Liebster award was started in 2014 as a way to connect with other new bloggers. The official rules for 2017 dictate that I tell you guys about my favorite small blog at the moment, answer Cynthia’s questions for me, and nominate five other blogs!

Favorite New Blog:

I have been loving Castles and Countours in the past few weeks! Emily’s post are always so on-trend and I love the unboxing and swatches that she does! I follow a lot of beauty blogs, but the added element of travel that she has woven into her site give me an extra reason to visit and majorly spark my wanderlust!

My Answers:

  1. Who is your role model?

    Zoe Sugg. I know it’s ridiculously cliche, but she is so positive and successful and she surrounds herself with great people.
  2. Who is your favourite fictional character?

    Leslie Knope all the way. Parks and Recreation is my all-time favorite show and I get told that I’m like her often (which I take as a compliment).
  3. Do you prefer movies or books?

    It used to be books, but then I decided to be an English major and I need a little bit of time to recover from that!
  4. How many countries have you visited?

    Unfortunately I’ve never been outside of the U.S., but I’m going to Greece in October for my honeymoon! I’m way too excited about it.
  5. If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would that be?

    Mac and Cheese for sure! It’s so delicious and there are so many ways to prepare it, I don’t think I could ever get sick of it! I would probably be really overweight though…
  6. What is your favourite song?

    Right now it’s our first dance song, “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur, but it changes all the time.
  7. Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?

    Harry Potter. I’ve read the whole series through so many times it’s ridiculous.
  8. What’s is your favourite ancient civilisation?

    I took an AWFUL ancient civilizations class in college so I resent all of them for the literature they made me read. (Joking. Mostly.)
  9. What is the weirdest dream you have had?

    One time I fell asleep on the couch shortly after watching a vine of a baby and my now-fiance covered me up with a blanket. I promptly overheated, had a sweaty nightmare that the baby was on fire, and woke up yelling, “WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BABY?” He felt so bad.
  10. Describe your morning routine.

    I wake up (begrudgingly), wash my face with my Burt’s Bees Brightening Daily Facial Cleanser (it’s so affordable and it does wonders for my complexion!), tone with the Origins United State balancing tonic, and moisturize with the GinZing moisturizer and eye cream. Then I do all the other personal grooming stuff (brushing my teeth etc.) before I go in my room to do my makeuWhta p at my vanity. This is my favorite part of the morning, especially now that I’ve renovated my vanity area. Then I get dressed, eat breakfast (my favorite right now is peanut butter, banana slices, and honey on a whole wheat English muffin) before heading to work!
  11. Would you like to have a pet dragon?

    YES! I was obsessed with dragons as a kid. I wrote books about a dragon names Adela and made ceramic figures of them all the time.

My Questions:

  1. What is your favorite makeup product?
  2. Who was the last person you gave a compliment to?
  3. Big city or small town?
  4. How many kids do you want?
  5. What’s your favorite way to save money?
  6. What was your favorite color as a child? Is it still your favorite color?
  7. What is your most prized possession?
  8. Would you rather spend your money on makeup or clothing?
  9. What’s your favorite resource for new bloggers?
  10. Where would you visit if given an all-expense-paid vacation?
  11. How was your day today?
