Liebster Award

I have seen this award around on a few peoples blogs and yay me! I got nominated for it. 

I was nominated by this lovely lady Niquelle over at paper plane!

These are the rules!

1. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator & list 11 random facts about yourself

2. Nominate 11 new bloggers (nominees should be other blogs ~200 followers ((I used Bloglovin' for stats)) who you feel deserve to be noticed), create 11 questions for your nominees, and link them in your post

3. Let them know you've nominated them for the award

4. Copy and Paste the award on your blog! You can find the award here

I found it really hard to find the 11 blogs to choose. So if you feel like 11 is to much these are my amended rules - you must nominate at least 6 blogs for the award. 11 is the goal but if you cant find 11 then thats no biggie (:

Part two of my amended rules - everyone I nominated - I would like you to follow all the other nominees. It'll be 10 new followers for all of you - unless of course you are already friends then in that case, I'm glad we have similar amazing taste in blogs to follow.

Here are the 11 nominees!
1. Sing Out Your Song 
2. The Love Crush 
3. The Little Knapsack 
4. guurrrl
5. some girl - a diary 
6. A Rambling Fancy
7. Little Laurens Blog
8. Rachel is Elsewhere
9. Sleepy Single Girl
10. Love Always, Freckles
11. Secret Obsession

And with that, here are somethings I get to share with you!

The 11 questions she gave me!
1. On average, how long does it take you to write a blog post?
At least 30 minutes 
2. What is your favorite charity and why?
To Write Love on Her Arms. They are doing amazing things by bringing more awareness to depression and feeling unimportant. They want everyone to know that they matter and that they are an important part of the world. They make it known that its ok to be in treatment for  being depressed or just needing someone to talk to. They are bringing back hope to the hopeless and its a really beautiful thing. 
3. What's one of your favorite books?
This is a mean question lol. I feel like once I have read a book, that I am emotionally attached to it afterwards. I love most books that I read. I really liked Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (its infinitely better than the movie) and I super love Peter Pan.
4. What is one of your happiest memories? 
The Dominican (:
 5. If you could move to a different country which would you choose?
Uhmmmmm. Anywhere with lots of tropical fruit and exotic animals.
6. Why do you blog? 
To give me something to do with my time over the summer, so I can remember things that I've done, and so I can perhaps inspire some people along the way. 
7. Tea or Coffee? 
I do not drink coffee what so ever. So tea is my answer but I don't like all tea. Its pretty bland. 
8. If you could have any career what would it be? 
Live in the jungle on a wildlife orphanage. 
9. What's your favorite store to shop in?
Well. Urban, but I mostly thrift my clothes or get them online. 
10. What's one of your guilty pleasures?
Picking the grey hairs out of my parents heads. 
11. Where is your favorite place to hang out in your town/city?
Well when we can actually go outside, I'd say Tempe Town Lake. 

11 random facts about me!
1. I have a 3rd degree burn (or well now its just a scar)
2. I have an invisible birth mark. Yes. Its a real thing
3. I'm left handed but play most sports right handed

  1. Thanks for the nomination...I'm excited to answer your questions!! And totally copying your new follower rule, because I think it's awesome :)

    And WOW, I can't believe you didn't have chocolate till you were 12!! I can't even imagine haha. My parents didn't let me have it till I was 5, and I thought that was a long wait :)

    1. Of course! You have a lovely blog.
      And yeah some children have bad reactions to caffeine and I was one of them. They gave me some when I was like 3 and I got really aggressive. I guess it was bad enough for them to be scared to let me have any until I was 12 haha.

  2. Congrats! My daughter is right handed and plays all her sports left handed. I find it so fascinating!

    1. In third grade my softball coach told me I wasn't very good left handed so they switched me and i guess that worked haha.

  3. Yay! I loved reading your answers and I totally love your rule amendments =)

    I'm so glad you're passionate about TWLOHA! A dear friend of mine did a lot of work with them during my undergrad and they really are a great organization.

    Also, I might have to pick up the book "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" - I really enjoyed the movie, but haven't read the book - oops!

    Anyway, thanks for posting!


    1. I actually think thats a movie thats better seen before you've read the book. Just because there was a lot that they cut out that you want to see if you've read the book. But I really hope you read it (:

      And yes i love TWLOHA. I would love to work for them. They do such incredible work in peoples lives!

      Thank you so much for nominating me and reading my blog
