Liebster Award: Get To Know Me

If you haven't noticed the badge along the side of my blog already, I am part of the Her Campus Blogger Network, which is a series of blogs written by high school and college students. You should definitely check out the list of blogs for some great reads.

Recently, the HCBN bloggers (and some outside of the network) have been nominating each other for the Liebster Blog Award, and today Regina Bianca nominated me! The Liebster Blog Award is basically a way for fellow bloggers to award each other for being great. If you decide to accept the award, then you must answer the 11 questions the nominator asks. Needless to say, I accept, and you'll get to hear a little bit more about me! Then I will pass on my 11 questions to a few of my favorite blogs from the Boston area.

Here are my answers to Regina's questions:

1. What was your favorite cartoon growing up?

My favorite cartoon was definitely Arthur. I have many memories watching that show after school haha! My mom always thought Arthur was a good role model but DW was a brat. I don't think I could tell the difference, but I did learn that having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card. Remember that? Flashback!

2. What event would you do for the Olympics?

Seeing as I was a competitive dancer all through high school, I guess I would choose gymnastics. Even though I don't like the idea of flipping around, I would love to be best friends with the Fierce Five a.k.a Fab Five.

3. What has value to you, but maybe no one else, and you would never get rid of?

All of the little notes, gifts, trinkets, drawings, wrapping paper and artifacts of me and Drew's relationship. We have so many inside jokes from now since high school, and it's really funny to look back on. I actually have two overflowing shoe boxes of items Drew has given to me (and that's not even everything), and I'm pretty sure he has a whole drawer of things in his desk. 

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people don't work to their full potential. It's okay to have lazy days every once in a while, but when it's time to work, whether for school classes, internships or working out, I always expect everyone (including me) to work their butts off. Also, I can't stand when people chew loudly!

5. Who would play you in a movie?

That's a tough one. I would prefer to play myself because I'd love the opportunity to act in a movie, but if anyone, I would want Rachel McAdams to play me because she can be sweet and sassy!

6. If you found out you were royalty, would you step up and be king or queen?

Sure? As long as I got Kate Middleton's closet. :)

7. What is your favorite thing about yourself?

My favorite thing about myself is my eyes. They're very odd-colored--a mix of green, blue, gray and yellow. They actually change depending on whether I'm wearing more blues, grays or greens in my outfit. I also like how my personality forces me to be dedicated in everything I'm passionate about. It drives me to do my best and not let anyone down.

8. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I had always been curious about it. I would think about starting a blog about all of the style trends, DIYs, recipes and music I love, but I was too afraid to start not knowing specifically what to write about. Then I realized that I would never know if I'd be successful at blogging if I didn't try, so I did! Now, here I am today writing to you all now.

9. If you could have something in unlimited supply, what would it be?

I'm picking more than one thing... water with lemon, heels, J. Crew flannels and homemade chocolate chip cookie brownies.

10. Who is your hero or role model?

My mom and dad. They have taught me the most valuable life lessons. Whenever I'm stuck or unsure of what to do in a situation, I go to them. They almost always have an answer for me, and if not, they always know what to say to make me feel better. 

11. What is the one moment in your life where you felt the most accomplished?

Two moments: (1) When I got my first internship for the current spring semester. I felt like all of the hard work done in my classes finally paid off, and I was actually starting to get somewhere in the real world. (2) Whenever someone writes a positive comment on my blog or compliments my blog in person, I always feel like I'm making somewhat of an impact in the blogging world. I alway appreciate those positive comments because it lets me know that somebody is reading (besides my family hehe), and it motivates me to keep blogging!

So that's a little about me. Now for my nominees and questions. I nominate:

Here are your questions:

1. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? (Ex. favorite trashy TV show, food, activity that helps you get through the week)
2. Who is your style icon?
3. Who is your favorite Twitter and/or Instagram follower and why?
4. What do you miss most about being a kid?
5. If you were a nail polish color, what would you be called?
6. If you could only eat one meal forever, what would it be?
7. If you could only keep one book/magazine forever, which one would it be?
8. If you could go out for coffee or a lunch date with anyone in the whole world, who would it be and what would you ask him or her?
9. Why did you start blogging?
10. Who/what inspires you to blog?
11. What is the greatest piece of advice you've ever received and who told you?
