Liebster Award?!


      I'm not sure how I should even start this post, but I'm sooo excited to have been nominated for the Liebster Award! So thanks a bunch to the fabulous Miranda from Handmade. Homemade. Mermaid for nominating me!

      So the Liebster Award is a way to promote new bloggers, and help bloggers gain some recognition. Here are the rules:

1. Link back to the person/people who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you
3. Nominate 11 other blogs with under 200 followers/subscribers
4. Create 11 questions for those 11 bloggers to answer
5. List 11 facts about yourself

     Okay, now that I've given the rules, here are the 11 questions I was asked, as well as my answers:

1. What is your favorite  color? It kind of depends on the situation (color to wear, wall color) but overall I'm obsessed with sea glass blue.
2. Who is your favorite author? This is such a hard one. Probably Meg Cabot but honestly I have many favorites.
3. What is your dream job? I'm not sure. There are a ton of Psych related jobs that I would love, and I'm hoping to get to try out a few as I work my way up. It would be really cool to analyze criminal interrogations though.
4. Why did you start blogging? I've always loved free writing, but I don't really have any opportunities being a Psych/Justice Studies dual major. Plus I have tons of thoughts and opinions that I just want to get out, and blogging is my way of doing that!
5. Coffee or tea? Oh no. Is it okay if I say neither? Yuck.
6. If you could visit one place, where would you go? France. It was a tie between France and Greece, but definitely France. (Parce que j'aime à parler français, et les photos que j'ai vu sont très beau!)
7. You've just been granted a shopping spree, which store would you pick first? Probably H&M. There's just such a nice mix between every-day and going-out clothing, and I really like the styles.
8. What is the craziest thing you have ever done? Probably a ropes course that I did this summer. It's not that crazy, but for me, it was insane! I'm terrified (like, can't move and get dizzy scared) of heights. I did this adventure course where you are at least 20 feet above ground (there are 3 height levels though) and walk across wires and ropes. You're hooked on to a wire above you but still... So scary. But so fun!
9. What is your favorite memory? I don't think I could give just one favorite memory...but the majority of my favorite memories are from my childhood. So things like...playing on the little beach my family used to go to, or feeding the geese at a small pond in NH, or even just waking up late at night to go with my Mom and sister to bring my dad dinner (when he did a late shift).
10. Favorite Disney character? I'm so awful, I haven't seen a ton of the Disney princess movies that most people have. Probably Ariel though. I used to really want to be a ginger because of her. Not to mention she had a tail and wore a shell bra. Like come on.
11. What book are you currently reading? Or most recently read? I just finished the second book in the Shopaholic series. I'm quite a book worm when I have the time though!

1. Kim from Pretty Pants
2. Amy from So There 
3. Sara from Thursday Afternoons 
4. Julie from My Wilderness (Life of Julie) 
5. Alex from Radiating Sunshine 
6. Alissa from This Elegant Awkwardness 
7. Ashley from Mint Sparkles 
8. Kayla from A State of [Stylish] Grace 
9. Tracey from Just a Trace 
10. Trina from Fluorescent Adolescent 
11. Mitangi from Pearl and Glory
