Humbled Again And Again!

So Honored ladies, Thank You So Much!

On Tuesday I was taken aback when I read the comment on my outfit post. I had just been nominated for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Caroline from The Girl In The Yellow Dress  last week and, to my pleasant surprise, I had been nominated for this Liebster award by not one, but two different lovely ladies! It is an award given to inspiring bloggers that have less then 200 followers to help spread the word of their inspiring sites. You are asked to answer the 11 questions given to you by the blog that nominated you, and then create 11 questions of your own for 11 more blogs that you pass the award onto, each blog also having less then 200 followers. Their blogs Fashion. Love. Unlimited. and That Seems Lovely are two of my favorites for sure. Axy and Beka, I cannot thank you enough for thinking of me when you received this award.

Here are the questions the beautiful Axy of Fashion. Love. Unlimited. asked me to answer:

1. What is it about fashion that attracts you?
The creativity to be your own person and wear what makes you happy. 
2. Do you have a favorite item in your closet ?
That is such a hard question!Pretty much anything high waisted is my favorite bottom, but my leather jacket would have to be my favorite.

3. What is your absolute favorite movie and why?
The Hangover because it is pretty much the funniest movie I have ever seen and has to be my favorite because it can always put a smile on my face.
4. Who is your favorite fashion designer? 
I love Christian Siriano actually, and Christian Louboutin for shoes, obviously. 
5. Do you think music and fashion are a good combination?
Absolutely! I think any combination of arts, whether it be fashion, architecture, music, fine art, graphic design, or any other art form, is a genius combination. 
6. How do you see fashion in 50 years from now?
Hmmm thats a good question. Is it a cop out to think that the Hunger Games had it right with their bright colors and funky hair and makeup? I think over time we have been more and more drawn to color and the unexpected, so I see fashion continuing on that path for sure. I think Lady Gaga's outfits will become the norm...and I am ok with that!
7. Do you think fashion can influence people's personalities and perspectives?
I think fashion definitely has an impact on my personality. When I get dressed up, I feel good, and that shows in my conversations and actions of everyday life. 
8. What country in Europe (that you didn't get a chance to visit) would you like to see and why?
I have only been to Italy so i have a few places to choose from! Spain is my husbands #1, but I am pulling for France. the architecture and the fashion are just exquisite. 
9. Can you name 3 celebrities from music, fashion, and film that you admire?
For fashion I would have to say Victoria Beckham. She is pretty much flawless and her style is impeccable.  For music I love Gwen Stephani, and her fashion is amazing as well. Hmmm for film I love Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway. They are my favorite actresses right now for sure.
10. What do you think it is the perfect recipe to run a fashion/lifestyle blog?
Honestly I am still trying to figure that out myself ;)
11. What is your New Year's resolution?
To learn to be a more caring, loving, respectful wife, daughter, sister and friend....and to get in shape of course!

Here are the questions the lovely Beka Nicole  of That Seems Lovely asked me to answer:

1)Favorite food.
 My dad makes these Italian style blue claw crabs and they are by far my all time favorite.
2) Favorite item of clothing to shop for.
 High waisted pants. A good pair is hard to come by, but if i find them I always feel sexy in them!
3) Favorite stores
 BCBG max azria is my favorite store, but I sadly cannot really afford it. I also love Nordstrom, J Crew and Club Monaco, but they too can be pricy. Anthropologie, Urban outfitters, American Apparel, H&M, Forever 21, Banana Republic, Sephora, and Gap are my go-to stores. 
4) Favorite movie
I have to repeat myself and say The Hangover, but of course I could watch any of the Harry Potter movies at any time and love them just as much as the first time.
5) What do you like most about fashion
 That it is about expressing your inner personality on the outside of your body. It is a bit like giving someone a glimpse of your soul.
6) Fashion item you have been dying over to get
Lately I cannot stop myself from buying statement necklaces and I have my eye on a few more. I also have my eye on a few belts that I have been drooling over.
7) One item you can't live without
 My leather jacket.
8) Ryan Gosling or Channing Tatum?
 My husband is going to kill me for answering this, but Ryan Gosling.
9) Funniest moment
 I can think of so many funny moments I have had over the years, but I am going to have to give a shout out to my friend Briana for this one time we were walking to my old Philly apartment together and for some reason we could not stop "meaw-ing" like a cat.....or laughing for that matter.
10) Goal with your blog
To inspire others to dress to match their fun personalities.
11) Favorite joke.
I feel it is ok for me to tell a blonde joke because I AM blonde and I have now problem laughing at myself and my people:
A blonde is driving down the highway in a brand new convertible. She accidentally cuts off a truck driver and he motions her to pull over, so they do. He gets out of the truck and approaches her, then draws a  circle on the side of the road and tells the blonde to get in the circle and to not get out under any circumstances. He takes out his keys and keys a line down the blonde's brand new car. When he turns to see her reaction, the blonde has a huge smile on her face, which makes the truck driver even more angry. He takes out his pocket knife and slashes all four of the blonde's tires. He then turns around to find the blonde giggling. This makes him furious, so he takes a sledgehammer from his truck and bashes all her windows in. He turns around to find the blonde laughing. At this point the truck driver is fuming so he takes some gasoline, pours it all over the convertible and lights the car on fire. When he turns around to see the blonde's reaction, he finds her rolling on the ground hysterically laughing. Finally he has had enough and shouts "What is so funny? I just destroyed your brand new car!" and the blonde responds with, "When you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle four times."

And here are the lovely blogs I want you all to check out! They are all such great reads for me and I know you will enjoy them as much as I do!
