The Leibster Award - Pass it On!

Hi friends! Hope y'all are doing well on this Tuesday. Here for you today I have the Liebster Award! A sweet blogging and real life friend, Emily and Dot nominated me and I was tickled. It's a fun way for bloggers to connect and showcase newer blogs with 200 followers or less! I'm loving it!

1. Post 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you, then create another 11 question set for the next group of nominees. 
3. Choose 11 people to nominate with under 200 followers then link them in the post
4. Let your nominees know they've been tagged!

Let's get started! 11 facts about yours truly:

1. I love Jesus. A lot. My relationship with Him is very special and although I fail constantly, I strive to live a life that honors the Lord.
2. I'm starting my senior year of college later this month. The fact that I'm a senior in college literally blows my mind (literally used correctly here).
3. I'm originally from Alabama and the glorious state will forever hold a special place in my heart.
4. I left my heart in the mountains of North Carolina many years ago and it's never left.
5. I work at Anthropologie.
6. I studied abroad this past fall (2013) in London and fell completely in love with the UK and English culture.
7. As you can tell, I fall in love with things and places and people far too often. I like to love.
8. I'm an Art History major and sitting in class never fails to excite me. I love that I love what I study.
9. I hate having my nails painted (but love the look).
10. Lipstick. I adore lipstick and red is always the appropriate color.
11. Green is my favorite color.

Now, for Emily's questions:

1. Favorite drink at a coffee shop? A Dirty Chai - chai tea latte with a shot of espresso. Trust me.
2. Favorite fashion trend going on right now? Vests, vests, vests. A perfect way to update clothes you already own!
3. If you could shop at only one store for the rest of your life what would it be? Struggled with this one and had to settle on a tie between Kate Spade and Anthropologie.
4. You have a plane ticket tomorrow for one country anywhere in the world. Where are you going? The United Kingdom. No questions.
5. If you could only have three apps on your phone (besides calling/messaging), what would you pick? Instagram, VSCOcam, and the Alarm clock!
6. Dream job? A visual manager or coordinator at Anthropologie.
7. Favorite guilty pleasure television show? It changes but currently, Dawson's Creek.
8. Favorite dessert? Strawberry cupcakes.
9. The first three websites you look at when you surf the web? Facebook (guilty as charged), Blogger, and Pinterest.
10. Where is your dream vacation? Riding up Highway 1 on the coast of California.
11. Why did you start blogging? Oh wow, so many reasons. First, I love the blogging platform and how it is a well-balanced personal relationship between the blogger and his/her readers. But, my real personal reason for starting was I wanted to contribute to our visual, stylish, and design world. I felt and still feel I have a voice ready to be heard. I'm still figuring out what this voice is and what it looks like but it's getting there!

New questions:

1. When was the last time you wrote a letter?
2. What is your favorite candy?
3. Coffee or tea?
4. Favorite season?
