Liebster Award – Q&A

Liebster: (German Origin) n. sweetheart, beloved person, darling


Hello all! I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Claudia Fox. It was very nice to be recognized, Claudia, so thank you. The award is basically a tag, a way to get to know more about the bloggers you follow and to find new bloggers to follow!

So before I ramble on, let’s get to it. Claudia asked…

  1. What would your dream home look like? Near the ocean, white or grey, a porch, and big backyard for lots of BBQ’s
  2. What’s your main hobby? Aside from the obvious (makeup), I love reading, watching YouTube, and…organizing
  3. Which holiday would you choose – Camping in the country or hotel in the city? Hotel. Easy. I’ve actually never slept outside before!
  4. Do you have pets? No, I don’t. I’m allergic to almost everything. I am definitely a dog person though.
  5. What is your one must have if you could only have one beauty product? Concealer. My under-eyes are rough stuff.
  6. If you were an animal what would you be and why? I know dolphin is a cliche, but I love swimming. So anything that could be in the water, really.
  7. Would you rather climb a mountain or go swimming in a lake? ^^ Lake ^^
  8. Favorite treat/dessert? Sweet>Salty…so this is hard. I really love ice cream
  9. Instagram or Twitter? Instagram. I love pictures and you’re less likely to find TV spoilers on Instagram
  10. Favorite lip product of all time? Probably Burt’s Bees lip balm in pomegranate. Nothing fancy, but if I could only pick one, this would be it. Honorable mention to the Revlon Lip Butters!
  11. Kindle or Book? Book. I love the smell of old books and that feeling you get when you’re halfway through one and the spine creases.

Now, the random facts about myself!

  1. I love having my nails painted but hate painting my nails.
  2. I used to be mildly addicted to Diet Coke.
  3. I am such a band geek and am in the marching band at The University of Iowa.
  4. I love airports. I almost think they are more fun than the vacation.
  5. When I’m really stressed out, I clean.
  6. I give myself allergy shots instead of going to the doctor.
  7. Peonies are my favorite flower.
  8. I like getting ready to go out more than going out.
  9. Amsterdam is my favorite city I’ve been to (so far).
  10. I firmly believe Emma Stone and I are meant to be best friends.
  11. My favorite clothing is either grey, striped, or grey.

  6. What is the one part of your makeup routine you spend the most time on?
