Liebster Award

Hello everyone! So, I recently was nominated for the Liebster award by Small Town Roots and Cowboy Boots! So thank you so much for the nomination. Her blog is super cute so be sure to check it out! 

Essentially the Libster award is an award that gets passed down from other bloggers. Its a great way that small blogs can get more exposure and to build connections in the blogger community. 

Here are the blogs that I nominate: 
Amanda from Brunette With a Bow
Brooke from The Twin Prep
Shelby from Lucky Day Blog 
Renee from Gimme Glamour
Juliana from Sequins and Curls Blog
Constance from Prep Northwest

Here are the rules for the Liebster award:

1. Thank and link a person who nominated you.

2. Write the rules and display the award.
3. Answer 11 questions and write 11 of your own.
4. Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers on their blog) and don’t forget letting them known that they have been nominated.
5. Write 11 facts about yourself.

Madeleine's questions: 
  1. How did you get started blogging? What advice do you have to new bloggers? I started blogging just to share my fashion sense really! I started in my Junior year of high school but never took it seriously until my freshman year of college (or this past year). My advice to new bloggers is to not be afraid to share your blog! Once I told people from my high school I got a lot more views and feedback. Now practically every time I see someone from high school they say they have read it! It is scary to share at first but once you do its great to know people enjoy what you create. 
  2. What’s one beauty product you swear by? I love any Revlon lip product! I am basically always wearing a lip product but Revlon has the best ones. I specifically like the balm stains both the matte and luster ones. 
  3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I would for sure live in London or New York. As a fashion major I hope to end up in one of these cities for a future job. But, they aren't the cheapest places to live. However, New York is my goal then London is a dream place to live. 
  4. What’s your favorite philanthropy/charity? Since I am a Pi Beta Phi I have to say Read Lead Achieve is my favorite philanthropy. Read Lead Achieve gives money and books to help with literacy. It's great to know that the money we raise goes straight to helping kids get educated. 
  5. If income and skill were irrelevant and you could literally have ANY job in the world, what would it be? I would say if I could have any job in the world I would be a stylist. I think it is hard to become a stylist because obviously you can't major in it! But, I think if money wasn't an object I would just style people and for magazines. 
  6. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? (or maybe just felt like you had rock hard abs haha!) The last time I laughed really hard was probably at school! My friends are hilarious and are always making me laugh so its hard to pin point one time!
  7. Who is one person you know in real life that has inspired you? Someone who really inspires me is my parents. Both of them have worked very hard to get to where they are now. It shows me that you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it. 
  8. What’s your life motto? I guess my life motto is don't let anyone dull your sparkle. There are some not-so-nice girls and guys out there but I think its important to never let anyone get you down. It is hard sometimes but I try to always stay positive as much as possible! 
  9. If you had endless money to spend at ONE store, where would it be? Ugh this is such a hard question! I would probably have to say Nordstrom because I can get a lot of brands that I love there. But a close second would have to be J. Crew because J. Crew is life. 
  10. When you’re having a rough day, what’s the one thing you know will cheer you up? Usually when I'm having a rough day I turn to my iPod. My "sad" or "depressed" playlist (yes I have that... no shame) always gets me through anything. Most of the songs are One Direction but I have a few other favorites! 
  11. If you had to take one book with you on a deserted island, what would it be? I am not a big reader but I would have to say TFIOS (The Fault In Our Stars). Basically because the book makes me laugh, cry, and happy all at the same time. 
My questions: 
  1. When did you start your blog? Why did you start it? 
  2. What is your favorite quote? 
  3. What is your favorite thing to write about? 
  4. If you had to eat one food for a month straight what would it be? 
  5. Name three clothing or accessories you couldn't live without. 
  6. Who is your favorite blogger of all time? 
  7. If you could go anywhere on vacation where would you go? 
  8. Who is your style icon? Why? 
  9. If you could only use one makeup product to get ready what would it be?
  10. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Here are 11 facts about me! 
  1. I am majoring in apparel merchandizing and public relations at Iowa State University! 
  2. I am a proud member of Pi Beta Phi women's fraternity. 
  3. I lived in London for a summer when I was 4. 
  4. I met Tim Gunn at a book signing and he complimented my outfit. I almost died. 
  5. My favorite brands/ stores are Kate Spade, J. Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, and Nordstrom. 
  6. My friends are my backbone. 
  7. I am obsessed with crafting, especially since I will be getting a little next year! 
  8. My favorite color has always been purple. Everything I own is basically purple. Its a problem. 
  9. I own way to many shoes and purses. 
  10. Statement necklaces are my favorite accessory of all time.
