The Liebster Award

I was nominated for this fancy thing called a "Liebster Award" by Caroline over at Pink and Green Pearls! I adore this concept of networking with other new bloggers, and it's such a fun way to get to know people while doing it!

Here's how it all works:

1. List 11 facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions of the person who nominated you
3. Create 11 new questions
4. Nominate 11 new bloggers that have less than 200 followers

11 Facts About Moi:
1. My middle name is Erin and when I was young I hated it, but when I was in middle school I considered going by it as my first name!
2. Sweets are my definite weakness
3. I love anything social and adore making new friends {virtual or in real life}
4. I have lived in the same house my entire life!
5. I have also attended the same Christian private school for 14 years now.
6. When I am living on my own later in life, I want to get a blonde pomeranian and name it Coconut... but Coco for short!
7. I won a competitive cheerleading state championship when I was in 10th grade.
8. I am obsessed with ICE drinks and lemon Pellegrino. 
9. I have way too many backpacks and tote bags for school, so I like to switch every one or two weeks just to mix it up!
10. I am an only child
11. I am the editor of my school's newspaper, The Lion Ledger

Caroline's Questions
1. Why do you love blogging?
I love the way it allows me to express myself! I love that I can chat with y'all about whatever is on my mind... whether it be my opinion on something, a purse that I'm dying to buy, or something I'm going through personally, and everything in-between!

2. Navy or black?
Navy all the way. I have never owned much black and it's definitely just not me. I recall when my grandmother died when I was about 8 I actually didn't own a single black item of clothing so I had to just wear brown because it was too late to go out and buy something! Of course I have learned to embrace black more since then, but navy is still my fav.

3. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
This is a tough tie. I love elephants and I think they are just the coolest thing ever. Also, I think it would be super fun to be a giraffe just because of how tall they are! 

4. Favorite holiday?
New years for sure! I love the fact that you are starting fresh, but most of all I love looking back on all of your accomplishments from the year prior!

5. Favorite book series and why?
I don't do much reading because of all the AP classes that I am taking in school, but I will say that I recently read "White Girl Problems" by Babe Walker and laughed so hard! It was hilarious. Whenever I read "for fun" I try to read something lighthearted and easy so I can take a break from all the intense AP reading.

6. Your favorite thing to blog about?
Talking about my opinion on things is definitely what I enjoy most. When I did my series on the way I see life, I just had such a great time sharing the way that I try to live. I definitely want to continue with that series this year!

7. Style inspiration?
I get inspiration from so much. I snap pictures and write down ideas from things I see on the street, pinterest, instagram, magazines, and so much more!

8. Favorite Lilly Pulitzer pattern?
Tough decision for sure! "Fallin In Love" "Tusk in the Sun" and "Spike the Punch" are my favorites of things that I own.

9. What should I watch next on Netflix?
I watched the whole Gossip Girl series three times so definitely watch that if you have not already. Currently, I am watching Grey's Anatomy which I am really enjoying too!

10. Best birthday memory?
In 11th grade my best friend had an edible arrangement sent to me while I was in history class! I seriously felt so special.

11. Favorite blog?
Without a doubt, Fancy Ashley is my all-time favorite blog!

My nominees! These are all some lovely blogs which I've been following lately. Due to the fact that most of the blogs I follow are over 200 followers, this was everyone else!

Hope y'all enjoyed learning a bit more about me and I hope you check out the fab bloggers that I nominated!


  1. Thanks so much for the nomination! That is so sweet of you! I hope you keep following along! I loved getting to know you better!
