Leibster Award

Thank you to Raquel from Lincoln Park Sharp for nominating me for the Liebster Award!

1. Thank the person who nominated you and comment on their blog.
2. Link back to their blog.
3. Nominate 10 (or more) bloggers for this award, and notify them.
4. Answer the 10 questions you were asked, and create more for the 10 bloggers you nominated to answer.
5. Include the rules in your post.


1. What's the best vacation you've ever been on?
I would have to say my trip to Paris a couple of years ago. I went with my family and my then boyfriend. The food, the atmosphere and all of the architecture was truly inspiring.

2. What's your favorite meal to eat for breakfast/brunch?
If we're talking a calories don't count kind of brunch then eggs benedict with a side of a mimosa! Holy yum. If we're talking healthy, I start nearly all of my mornings with a greek yogurt and a banana. This of course comes with a side of about 3 cups of coffee. I swear, without coffee my days just wouldn't function!

3. How did you decide to begin blogging?
There's actually a fun story to this. Almost two years ago, I was at the Kentucky Derby with one of my friends. While we were exploring, I spotted Keil James Patrick and Sarah Vickers (Classy Girls Wear Pearls, anyone?!). BTW -- Sarah has one of the kindest hearts of anyone I've ever met. Such a doll! After meeting them, it gave me the inspiration I needed to officially kick start my blog. It was something I had been debating for a while and this was the turning point for me!

4. What's your favorite beauty product of all time?
Okay now this is a really tough one. I would have to say either Benefit 'it's potent' eye creamicon or Benefit 'boi-ing' concealericon. The eye cream truly changes lives (anything from a hangover to lost sleep, this is for you!). I've started using it everyday regardless and I've seen such a drastic change. Purchase now, ladies! The concealer always gives me full coverage no matter what my blemish might be. I love it!!

5. What's your go-to casual outfit?
That's a tough one! I would have to say a pair of jeans (my favorite is KUT from the Kloth Boyfriend Jeans) and either a graphic tee or simple pullover. Of course, these would be paired with all of my favorite accessories!

6. Which brand of shoes is your favorite?
Overall, I would have to say Steve Madden. At least 25% of the shoes in my closet are designed by him and I really love every pair. Great quality at a great price.

7. Do you pick out your outfit the night before or the day of?
All of my outfits are pre-planned either the night before or several nights before. If you follow me on snapchat, you've seen that I have a rolling rack in my room that I keep outfits I've styled. This makes it easy for when an unexpected event comes up and I need an outfit. Between working for the magazine (Paducah Life), blogging, getting work outs in and spending time with friends & family, who has the time?! I totally understand. That's why you plan ahead, ladies and gents!

8. Do you prefer lipstick, lipgloss, or both?
Definitely lipstick. I love a good gloss but when the wind blows, nothing is more annoying than your gloss sticking to your perfectly styled hair. No thank you!

9. What's a good book you've read recently?
I'll be honest, I'm not a huge reader. I love magazines though! (Go figure since I work for a local magazine! ;-). My favorite edition of ours is actually our last publication for the holidays. It's always a treat getting to read about all of the amazing local endeavors going on around me.

10. Do you have any pets?
I have a family Pomeranian named Auggie and my roommate has a French Bulldog named Yadi (any Cardinals fans out there?!). They are both so much fun to have around!
