Liebster Award

On Saturday, my blog was nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Vina Smith at Pretty in Prep! I've seen many blogs who have been nominated for the Liebster Award, but this is the first time I've been nominated :-)

Once you get nominated for the Liebster Award, you list eleven facts about yourself, answer the eleven questions asked by the person who nominated you, write your own eleven questions, and nominate eleven blogs that are not that well-known. The goal of the Liebster Award is to learn about other bloggers and help promote blogs!

Eleven Facts About Me:
1. I consider the library as my second home.
2. I have an odd obsession with all office supplies.
3. I go to a Catholic high school (if you couldn't already tell by the name of my blog!).
4. I put so much effort into my school work because I really care about my grades.
5. My birthday is on January 4th, which makes my half birthday on the Fourth of July.
6. I play forward and midfield for the varsity soccer team at my school.
7. I have an amazing boyfriend that I've been dating for almost a year and a half now.
8. My favorite place to be is the beach.
9. I love living in Massachusetts because of the Cape, Boston, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket.
10. I'm only 5'1".
11. I'm really close with my mom.

Eleven Questions for Me:
1. What inspired you to start your blog? | I've always wanted to have a blog, but I never knew what to write about. I finally got this blog in September 2012 and wrote about random stuff. Then I came across Carly Heitlinger's blog through Pinterest in December 2012, and her blog was such an inspiration to me! I finally knew what I wanted my blog to be about and what I wanted the name to be because of her and her blog.
2. Who is your biggest role model? | My biggest role model is my mom. She is the sweetest, most generous, most forgiving, most amazing woman I've ever met. My mom has seen me at my absolute worst and absolute best, and she's one of the few people who has never left me. I can always count on her to make me feel better, and I have no idea what I would do without her.
3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why? | I would go to Atlantis in the Bahamas. My family and I went there summer 2010, and it was seriously the best vacation ever! I loved all of the water slides (even the Leap of Faith!), getting my hair braided by a native woman, the amazing views, and just the relaxation.
4. What is your favorite season? | My favorite season is spring. It's just the right temperature because it's not too hot and not too cold. And it's always raining in the spring, and I absolutely love rainy days!
5. What was your most recent fashion purchase? | On Saturday night, I bought a pair of nude heels at Payless because I needed a pair to go with some dresses of mine. Maybe I'll do a post on them... :-)
6. What is the last book you read? | I read the Karma Club by Jessica Brody. It was very good! Stay tuned for a book club post on it ;-)
7. What can you never leave the house without? | I can never leave the house without my cell phone, planner, book, and chapstick!
8. How would you guide someone who is new to the blogging world? | I would tell them to follow all of the blogs that interest them, comment on a lot of posts, and post every day. I would also tell them to use social media to promote their blog.
9. What do you love the most about the blogging? | Definitely the amazing girls I've met. I've met so many girls that are around my age, and they're all so sweet and easy to talk to. I look forward to keeping in touch with all of them!
10. If you could be anyone for the day, who would you pick? | I would be Morgan Eastwood. I love Morgan Eastwood! She's my age and gorgeous. Morgan also seems to have such a fun life.
11. Describe yourself in five words. | Friendly, hardworking, organized, athletic, and happy.

My Eleven Questions:
1. If you could have any piece of clothing item, what would it be?
2. Where is your favorite place to be?
3. How did you start blogging?
4. What are your favorite stores?
5. If there is one thing about yourself that you could change, what would it be?
6. Why do you love blogging?
7. What do you want to be when you grow up?
8. If you were to be granted one wish, what would you wish for?
9. What is your favorite way to spend a rainy Saturday?
10. What is your favorite book and why?
11. What is your favorite type of tea/coffee to have?
