I am so incredibly honored to have been nominated for the Liebster Blogging Award by none other than Haleigh from Sincerely Hales. This lady is so stylish and kind! I absolutely love everything on her blog and IG. What a gem! Thank you so much, pretty lady! I get to nominate some lovely bloggers myself! Read on to find the nominees and awesome Q&A’s!
Before we begin the with the nominees: Here are the 10 questions I got! These are so much fun and I applaud all the lovely blogging ladies for their creativity and nominations of others. What an amazing way to share other bloggers that you appreciate and that deserve some awesome love! Not only have I won the Versatile Blogger Award – but now this lovely award!
Question 1: Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I felt like I needed to share my survival story. I was diagnosed with Steven-Johnsosn Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Nercolysis Syndrome back in 2009. This is caused by an adverse reaction to a medication. All it took for this to happen was a slight fever and one Motrin pill. I took the pill for a fever, like any normal person would do. One pill almost killed me and put me in the hospital in a come for 3 months. It left me scarred, physically and emotionally. I was left blind, weak, and physical deformed. The thing is, I survived…there was a 10% chance that I would – and I did. After that, I felt like I wasn’t beautiful, like my life wasn’t beautiful. But I overcame many challenges: being bullied because I was blind, having scars on my face, and because I was different. You know what? I’m 100% loving my life now. I have my vision restored and I love fashion and makeup. Ain’t no illness going to stop me from being beautiful – and it shouldn’t stop anyone!
Question 2: Who is your style icon?
Kate Middleton. The gal has class and style. Plus we have the same diamond and sapphire ring! Sorry, Kate.
Question 3: What is your favorite piece of clothing/accessory you own?
This ASOS Lace Dress found here. I have one in black and one in white!
Question 4: If you could buy from one designer for the rest of your life, which designer would it be?
Question 5: What is your favorite place to visit (or dream destination)
New Zealand. I’m ready to pack up and leave any minute. It’s been on my bucket list for years. That and the UK.
Question 6: What is your favorite beauty product?
I would have to say my Yves Saint Laurent Foundation. It’s just the right skin tone! I’m pale with a hint of mediterranean skin tone. It’s really weird. It’s like alabaster meets olive meets red because I have a really natural blush that is incredibly annoying. It covers my scars well – not that they’re very much covered 🙁 Anyways, Yves has my back. Found my match!
You can find it here
Question 7: What is your favorite season and why?
Summer. I can’t stand cold weather. It’s the Mediterranean blood that runs through me. I need sunshine and 80 degrees constantly. I get cold easily…so I’m like a lizard in the sun. I love it!
Question 8: Favorite drink from Starbucks
Hot Chocolate. Everything else is too sweet and icky. I don’t know how people can stand any of their Lattes. Yuck.
Question 9: What are your tips for a new blogger?
Read blogging books and don’t buy blogging courses just yet. Don’t publish your blog until you have everything set up. It just looks so messy when there’s zero posts and clear direction. I’ve made that mistake. It was horrifying.
Question 10: Do you prefer to shop online or in stores?
Stores. I’m petite and I NEED to try on clothes before I buy, especially shoes. I have Cinderella feet. Has to be perfect. But I love shopping online too.
