Blogger Award! :)

July 24, 2012

Hi dolls!!

I was SO excited and absolutely flattered to get an e-mail that I was nominated for the Liebster Award by another sweet blogger Sara over at Sincerely, SK (be sure to check out her blog by clicking HERE y’all! She’s beautiful and has great style!).The award is intended for bloggers with under 200 followers (which I’m so excited that the numbers have increased every day) to help increase awareness of their blog throughout the blogging community. Ever since I started my blog in September of 2011 I have been so pleased with all the support and encouragement I have received from the online blogging community!

Anyway along with the award are a few questions to answer….so I am going to answer those and then nominate 5 other bloggers!

1. Which blogger inspires you or you simply just love and cannot get enough of?

My hands-down favorite, check every day when I wake up in the mornings (and have for the past few years) blog is by Megan over at Pretty in Pink Megan. This blog is full of not only fashion but also great humor and wit. I love it and encourage you to check it out HERE. Her blog definitely inspired me to start my own!!!

2. What is your horoscope sign?

I was born September 1st which makes me a Virgo. I NEVER read my horoscope so honestly I cannot tell you what that even means in terms of “personality traits” or whatever but I’m pretty impressed I even know what sign I am! Haha

3. What are two quotes you love?

One of my absolute FAVORITE quotes is the Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 which states “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plansto give you hope and a future.” This verse has always brought me SO much comfort throughout my life knowing that my life is in God’s hands and he has a purpose for my life that is beyond anything I could imagine!

Another one of my favorite quotes is a lighthearted quote that comes from the one and only Dolly Parton. She is one of my favorite celebrities because she is absolutely HYSTERICAL and knows how to make fun of herself! My favorite quote by her is “I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blonde.” So y’all I guess the secret is out: I’m not a natural blonde but rather more of a dirty blonde. But like Dolly, I’ve never been offended when people have called me a “dumb blonde” because my little secret is I’m not really blonde!!! 

4. What is one thing this summer you must do, no ifs or buts about it?

I just bought a few new bathing suits this weekend at Target so I MUST find time to wear them and hang out at the pool AND at the beach!!!!

5. What are 3 words your friends would use to describe you?

My friends usually always say I’m in a good mood so I would first say positive. Girly is also an adjective that they would definitely use to describe me….everyone knows how much I love PINK and fashion. Third….I would say friendly. I LOVE talking to and making new friends!!! J

6. What is one dream you hope to achieve in your life journey?

One dream I have (besides my absolute number one dream which is to marry the love of my life and have a family one day) is to be able to find a place in the world of fashion (in particularly and hopefully through my blog) and inspire others through fashion!!!!

7. What is your favorite dish to eat?

Being that I was born and raised south of the Mason-Dixon Line, I would have to say that my ultimate favorite dish to eat is fried chicken!!! Whether it’s on a salad, or with a side of French fries…I love me a big ole plate of fried chicken! J

8. Who is one person that inspires you in your life?

My sweet Momma definitely inspires me and always has. When I was a senior in high school we had to do what are called “Chapel Talks” in front of my whole school and I wrote mine about my sweet Mom and all the many lessons I’ve learned from her. She is AMAZING …not only as a mother but just a wonderful person in general. She has ALWAYS been there for me no matter what and I willbe one lucky girl if I’m half the woman she is one day!!!!!

9.  What is one thing you are looking forward to this fall?

FALL FASHION!!!! Oh yeah. I can’t wait to break out my skinny jeans and riding boots and blog about all the new trends that will surely emerge.

Oh and UT football games. I graduated from the University of Tennessee and I still LOOOOVE attending football games….which I confess it’s mostly for the fashion (did you ever read my post HERE about UT football fashion?)….but still YAY FOR FOOTBALL!!!

10.   Favorite television shows that start up in the fall or now summer?

My absolute FAVE TV show that is on in the summer is Big Brother. I have watched every.single.season. since I was 10 years old. I LOVVVEEE it!!!! I also really like the Bachelorette/Bachelor (season finale Sunday night---who else watched/?!). This fall I am SUPER excited about the new series called “Nashville." Who else has seen the commercials?! It looks gooooooooood. Oh and of course all the Real Housewives on Bravo which I know will continue on in the fall. YAY! My fave though is OC which just ended.

11. What are the top 5 places you want to travel?

1.   Italy
2.   Hawaii (again, I’ve already been once!)
3.   New York City (again I’ve already been once but I want to go again!)
4.   Tahiti
5.  London (my boyfriend recently returned from a trip there and LOVED it! I want to go!)

Now for the fabulous blogs I nominate:

Confessionsof a Southern Belle (
