Liebster Award

June 13, 2013

I'm very excited to be posting today! I had the honor of being nominated for a Liebster Award by Courtney of Twentyapolis--so sweet!

How it works: bloggers nominate each other to help grow networks and discover new bloggers. It's a fun way to find new bloggers and help each other get recognition, so I'm so excited to be nominated and now to do some nominating of my own! 

The Rules:
1. Everyone who is nominated must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you. Then come up with 11 questions for your nominees.
3. Choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and nominate them for a Liebster Award. Tag them in your post as well. (Nominees--I know some of you have more than 200 followers, no disrespect, but I just love your blogs and want to recognize them! Also, I realize some of you have been tagged already.)
4. Go to each bloggers page and tell them about their nomination.
5. Connect with the bloggers via social media and follow their blog.

So here are my questions from Courtney at Twentyapolis:
Tell us about your blog!
My Inner Fabulous was originally called Friends Fun Fashion Food when I started it in November of 2012, to encompass all the things I anticipated blogging about. I honestly created it because I was told that it would look good to have on my resume. I never expected to love it as much as I do! It's such a fun way to get creative and keep in touch with people (I have friends and family tell me they wouldn't know what was going on in my life if I didn't update my blog!) I then changed the name and revamped my site to the current My Inner Fabulous. I think that everyone has some fabulous inside of them and it's important to channel that and be confident!

What is one thing your readers don't know about you?
I've mentioned him a few times on the blog before, but I don't think I've ever gone into detail. I am in a long (currently very long) distance relationship. I have been dating the most amazing man for about four years and have never been happier. He lives in California, so I'm basically missing him like crazy right now! It's been two months since I've seen him, and I've got about another month to go before I get to go visit him in July. (25 days!)

What inspires you?
Confidence. I love seeing confident women owning whatever it is they're passionate about.

Spill the details. What's your guilty pleasure?
Singing when I'm alone. I can't get enough of jamming by myself in the car or shower. (Also, my Crocs--don't give me that look!)

Next vacation?
Well I'm currently in London, but since I'm working and taking classes I won't count it as a vacation. In two weeks when my program is over I will be headed to France, so we'll say that's my next vacation!

Which would you pick, truth or dare?

Describe your perfect Saturday:
I would get to sleep in! Then I absolutely love breakfast food, so I'd start the day off either with donuts, french toast or chocolate chip pancakes. Then I'd have plenty of time to catch up on blogs/emails/Pinterest etc. After catching up with all of that I'd head to the beach or pool to lay in the sunshine and read a really bad (but oh so good) book and magazines. Then I'd end the day with a night out with my man and movie watching! (Also, there would be lots of dogs and twinkle lights involved.)

What's one goal you would like to accomplish this year?
I would love to get a paying job before the end of the summer!

How would you describe your personal style?
Classics with a few risks (aka: some pretty tame pattern mixing).

Name one thing you are currently obsessed with:
Ben and Jerry's 'Chocolate Fudge Brownie'

One piece of advice for bloggers:
Don't feel like you need to create meaningless content just so you can post often. Only post when you feel like you have something worthwhile to say/show/share.

So, here are my nominees!
Libby of Stylin' Iowan
Brittany of GLAMBAMxo
Lauren of Lake Shore Lady
Amanda and Jennie of 2 Girls in 2 Cities
Katelyn of Katalina Girl

Questions for my nominees:
How did you start your blog?
What do you splurge on?
What do you always avoid?
Name one thing you can't live without.
If you were going to start a company, what would it be?
What makes you feel amazing when you wear it?
Favorite store to shop at?
What motivates you?
What is your biggest fear?

Dogs or cats?
