The Liebster Award

Thank you to Heather over at Rags and Roses for nominating Hello November for a Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is a way to recognize new bloggers as well as gain new readers.
Being nominated for the Liebster Award is also a great way for to find some like minded bloggers.

  • Thank the amazing blogger that nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions the nominator provided
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers
  • Post 11 different questions for your nominees to answer 
  • Contact your nominees to let them know that you've nominated them

2. Do you have any hidden talents?
I can't think of any.

a few favorites are:
On The Road by Jack Kerouac
Naked by David Sedaris
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Girl, Interrupted By Susanna Kaysen
The Perks of Being a Wallflower By Stephen Chbosky
& The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

4. If you could pick any era to live in, which one would it be?
I'm not sure I could  choose an era. I would have loved to lived during the 1960's and 1970's though. I'm fascinated by the clothing and home decor from those decades.

5. Who are a few of your icons?
Andy Warhol, Paul McCartney, Audrey Hepburn, Tina Fey, & Wes Anderson.

6. Name three of your must-have wardrobe staples.
 sneakers like vans or converse, skinny denim jeans, & my wedding ring.

7. Where do you see yourself in five years?
 Newly 30, possibly with kids, in my seventh year of marriage. Hopefully still blogging about it all!

8. What does blogging mean to you? (e.i. why did you start/what do you get out of it/etc)
I started blogging after transitioning from Livejournal. I wanted to be able to share projects and outfits like some other bloggers I followed and drew inspiration from. It has always been a space for me to express my creative side. Today It serves almost as an interactive journal where I can meet other people :) I get to document my life, hobbies, food, pets, (pretty much everything), and it's fun to be able to look back at that a couple of months down the road. I like being able to indulge my creative side here first and foremost.

9. If you could have a re-do at anything, what would it be?
I'm an impulse buyer so there's a few purchases I wish I could redo for sure.

10. If you could only eat one meal forever, what would it be?
I would probably have to say tortilla soup with avocado and sour cream. I don't think I could ever get tired of it.

11. Where do you draw inspiration from in your daily life?
My husband, nature, & other creatives. 

And now, here are my nominations for the Liebster Award:

Cloudy Chase 
s a l t w o r t 

& I'm only nominating these two because I'm not familiar with any other blogs that are also just starting out, but these two girls are both so so talented and deserve a shout out and some recognition. (I also wanted to make sure that I was familiar with the blogs I nominated, and that I actually follow them myself. So sorry it is only two, but they're two super amazing ladies!)

Here are my questions for Melissa and Hannah.

1. What is your preferred morning beverage?
2. Where did you go on your favorite trip or vacation?
3. What was your best subject in school?
4. Which blogs or bloggers inspired you to start your own blog?
5. Who are some of your style icons?
6. Which is your favorite holiday, and why?
7. Which decade inspires your own personal taste the most?
8. Are you a morning person or a night person?
9. Name some of your top pet peeves.
10. What is your all time favorite video game?
11. What is your five favorite movies?

I wanted to extend another huge thank you to Heather for nominating me and Hello November for the Liebster Award. Thank you for this recognition!
