Back in January (practically a lifetime ago), I was nominated for the Liebster Award; needless to say, I was ecstatic.  I'm just as ecstatic to have been nominated again by the lovely Adrienne, a fellow blogger.

I love this award because it was created by the bloggers, for the bloggers.  It's an ideal way to expand the blogger community, and to help you, the reader, learn a bit more about the person behind the screen.

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
After following so many bloggers for such a long time, I finally said to myself, "If they can do it, why can't I?"  Blogging seemed like the perfect way to express myself to others.  I sat down, fired up a Blogger template, and now, ten months later, here we are!

2. Who is your fashion inspiration?
I can't pin it down to one particular person, but I can narrow it down to an era.  The fifties ladies of Old Hollywood, especially Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Vivien Leigh, have always been the largest influence on my style.  I also am inspired by many fashion bloggers, including the College Prepster and Shannon from Prep Avenue.

3. What is your favorite thing to do during the summer?
I love swimming for hours on end--I only wish we lived near the ocean!

4. What is your favorite type of flower?
Hydrangeas have always had a special place in my heart.  I'd love to have a yard completely covered in them.

5. What is your favorite type of music?
This is going to sound extremely nerdy, but I love show tunes.  I've probably memorized all of the lyrics to The Phantom of the Opera score...

6. What are some of your hobbies?
My hobbies include singing, blogging (surprise, surprise), pageantry, school (this can qualify as a hobby), baking, reading, and interacting with animals in any way.

7. What is one random/interesting fact about yourself?
I've always wanted to learn at least five different languages.  Right now I'm cracking away at Italian and French.

8. Where do you hope to see yourself in ten years?
In ten years, I'll be nearly twenty-five. At that time, I'll hopefully be making my way through vet school with optimistic grades and a steady internship.  I'd also like to have started my own nonprofit, been to a Miss America pageant, have made plans to go abroad, and have a world-renowned blog.  I have pretty high standards, as you can see.

9. Tory Burch or Kate Spade?
Both are lovely, but I can't resist Kate's witty sayings and mannerisms.

10. Do you have any siblings?
No, but I do have two dogs, and I believe they can be just as realistic.

11. What is your number one fashion essential for summer?
I love having shorts on hand:  some athletic ones for lounging around, and some nicer ones for going out.

I nominate any bloggers out there for the Liebster Award (see my previous post for your questions).
I'm truly grateful for all of my blogger friends, and I cannot wait to make some new ones!  After all, bloggers make the world go 'round.
