I was recently nominated for a second time for the Liebster Blog Award. This time it comes from, Ashley Evelyn at Beauty Blog Orlando. As always, it is an honor to be recognized in this way, and I really appreciate it! Thank you very much, Ashley Evelyn!
Award nominations are wonderful to receive, and the questions posed within them are a fun way to learn more about each other!
It is my understanding that this particular award is meant for people with fewer than 200 followers, as a way to get to know them a little better.
However, because it is can be difficult to tell which blogs fit that criterion, it is a great opportunity to bring attention to other blogs, regardless of how many followers they have!
The rules of the award are as follows:
- Answer the 11 questions proposed by the person who nominated you.
- Select 11 people for the award.
- Pose 11 new questions to the new nominees.
Here are the answers to the questions posed to me:
What’s the #1 beauty product you can’t live without?
What does beauty mean to you?
Confidence, kindness, and good character
Which beauty look do you like, but struggle to achieve?
Which men’s trend of 2012 do you wish a man in your life would try?
I honestly don’t follow men’s trends but I appreciate the casual, comfortable clothing my husband wears.
Which celebrity’s style do you like, or emulate?
I like the way Jennifer Aniston dresses.
What characteristic do you especially look for in a blog?
I like blogs that share beautiful pictures, thoughts and uplifting information that is helpful to others and not solely focused on the author.
What’s the first blog you fell in love with?
There are several that I really liked immediately, so I would not want to single any one particular blog out.
Who is your favorite Femme Fatale?
Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct was very intriguing.
We’ve all had beauty/fashion “oopsies.” What’s your oopsy?
Wearing white undergarments under white clothing, before long ago realizing the nude shades work best.
From time to time I write about my friends and family. How do the people in your life respond to the idea of themselves as subjects?
I don’t generally write anything very personal about friends or family so they respond favorably because I am respectful of their privacy.
In your opinion, what is the one book that should be read and re-read?
There are so many great books but I have mentioned on a few occasions, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Of course, I’d have to include my own book as well, The Right Relationship Starts with You. 🙂
It will be a pleasure to get to know you better. If you would like to participate, then please answer the questions below.
- Oil Pastels by Mary
- Curiosity Is My Motive
- Home And The Range
- The Healthy Flavor
- Lovely Buns
- Fae’s Twist and Tango

My Questions to the nominees taken from my original Liebster award post:

- What is your favorite comedy?
- When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
- Why did you start a blog?
- What is your favorite part of blogging?
- What would be the name of your ‘reality show’ to describe your life?
- If you were to give a speech on any topic, what would it be?
