Today I will answering questions from my 2nd Liebster award nomination. This time I was nominated by the incredible To Kill a Fashion Victim! She had some great things to say about my blog, which I appreciate so much! I literally smiled for a day. 🙂
As explained in my previous post, the Liebster Award recognizes up and coming bloggers that don’t have a large following yet but are working towards growing their following and influence. Someone nominates you and gives you ten questions to answer. In return, you nominate a handful of amazing bloggers that you want to share this special award with and give them a set of questions to answer.
What inspired you to start your blog?
My obsession with fashion. When things didn’t work out with the fashion school I attended, I felt so lost and hopeless. Around that time, I came across some fashion blogs. I immersed myself into them and started reading regularly. One in particular, Fash Boulevard, was my main inspiration. I have been reading her blog since she started it and have been so inspired by her journey….from winning the Lauren Conrad blog challenge to being a contributor for Vanity Fair and FitFabFun. However, I did not start my blog because of her. I started it as a much needed creative outlet to showcase what I have a deep obsessive passion for…fashion. (And to make new friends along the way 🙂 ) I just really admire her journey from a beginning blogger to a successful business woman. It shows me that anything is possible. It gave me push I needed to go after my dream of working in fashion…after I had almost given it up.
What is your stance on sustainable fashion?
I think it’s a really great idea. I am all for eco-friendly products and fashion is no exception.
How would you say is the most influential figure in fashion/beauty today?
Lauren Conrad. Of course, I’m biased…she’s been my favorite since forever. I think that she is a big influence now-a-days. She boasts two successful fashion lines while writing books and running the Little Market among other ventures. I think that she is a great role model for girls out there. I definitely look up to her and hope to gain knowledge from her experiences.
If you could immerse yourself in one culture for a week, what would that culture be?
Oh any culture! I love learning about different traditions and getting to know the differences in others that makes us all so unique and interesting.
What is the most unique thing about you?
Well, I am girl that can shred on the guitar…..as well as a self taught musician. There aren’t too many girls out there that can play Van Halen. ;-)….especially while wearing a poofy dress. (True story)
What is your main goal in life?
It has always been to be a fashion designer. I still want that even if I’m just designing for myself. More than anything though… I want to live a fulfilling life. I want to be the best wife I can be and someday, the best mother I can be. I want to help others and change lives for the better.
Who do you admire?
My mom. She has been a single parent all of my life. She raised three kids by herself with one paycheck. She taught me a lot about life and a lot about myself. I didn’t realize how much she did and sacrificed until I got older. She is truly my hero.
What is your favorite shape?
I would say a heart. <3
What is your spirit animal?
I wasn’t sure about this one, so I just took a quiz. Apparently, I’m a wolf? “Sharp intelligence, deep connection with instincts, appetite for freedom….” hmmm….
If you could be anywhere in the world, right now, where would you be?
On vacation. I definitely need one. lol!
