I still consider myself to be a newbie at this blogger/ Instagram thing, but I believe in my short time of being involved in this "business," I've learned a few things.

First and foremost, though, I've learned that blogging is a community effort.  Without bloggers interacting with other bloggers, we wouldn't have blogger friends or blogger meetups or blogger photoshoots.  And you've got to admit, those are pretty cool things to watch and read about.  Or even be a part of.

That is why I'm thrilled to announce that I've been nominated by Caroline Grace Prep for the Liebster Award, which is a sort of questionnaire (with super amazing questions).  It's also a fantastic way to spread the word about newer blogs, and even for you readers to get the answers to those burning questions that I just know you've been thinking about for months (I crack myself up).

I'll have my nominations and questions towards the end of this post!  Please enjoy!

1. Who or what introduced you to the preppy style?
One day I stumbled across a Sarah Belle video on YouTube, and that was when I first started learning about the preppy style.  Then I got a Pinterest account and, well, you can probably guess what happened from there...

2. Manicure or pedicure?
If I have a choice, neither.  I know, I'm probably one of the sole girls that hates having her nails done.  Because I do pageants, though, I need to have them done every once in a while.  I've found that having a pedicure is a little more enjoyable.

3. What is your most worn item in your closet?
Tough one, but I'm going to go with this really baggy sweatshirt that I got in Hawaii.  It's like wearing a semi-stylish paper bag.

4. What kind of phone case do you have?
My favorite phone case is a Vineyard Vines inspired case from Etsy.

5. What is your favorite store?
J Crew Factory, J Crew Factory, and... J Crew Factory!

6. Lip gloss or lipstick?
Since I tend to have a more natural makeup look, I prefer lip gloss (as long as it isn't the sticky kind).

7. What is your favorite thing to do to relax after a long day?
Especially on Friday afternoons, I love jamming out to Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack.  That is, if I'm not jamming out to the Wicked soundtrack.

8. What is your favorite show on Netflix?
Cupcake Wars-- it's my favorite things in one show.  Cupcakes and competition!

9. Do you prefer Lilly Pulitzer or Kate Spade?
Although I love both, I feel like my style drifts towards Kate Spade more.  Lilly is beautiful, but for someone like me who wears gray and navy most of the time, it isn't very practical.  Plus, I love quotes and witty sayings, and Kate Spade has some of the wittiest.

10. What made you decide to start a blog?
I had been following other bloggers for a long time, and I loved the idea of being able to give others advice and being able to possibly share experiences with readers.  Honestly, I was a little afraid to put myself out here, and I didn't know if people would really want to read about my life.  One day I worked up enough nerve, and I started designing a blog template.  You know how it goes from there!

11. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Like I mentioned above, it's great to be able to share advice with other people, and I love writing.  I'd like to think that someone might read my blog and get inspiration, or maybe even start their own blog.  I'd like to think that, in my own little way, I'm helping people, one post at a time.

I nominate the following blogs for the Liebster Award:

Here are your questions:
1. What is your favorite quote?
2. Do you have a favorite subject in school?  If so, what is it?
3. Describe your style in one word.
4. What is your favorite type of shoe to wear during the winter?
5. What is your favorite type of shoe to wear during the summer?
6. What is one accessory that you wear almost every single day?
7. What is your favorite movie of all time?
8. Who is your style inspiration?
9. If you could go to any destination in the world for a week, where would you go and why?
10. Why did you start blogging?

Thanks so much for reading!  I can't wait to see the responses!
