Liebster Blog Award.

Monday, September 03, 2012

How is your long weekend going? So far so good on my end! However, I thought I'd keep us in the vacation mode before plunging you into commenting & outfit posts & all that & pass along some good cheer & awesomeness to a few spotlighted fellow bloggers of mine!
The lovely Cambria of Jupe Fashion recently awarded CE&TH with a fantastic Liebster Blog Award! Did I mention what a doll she is? :) If you don't know of her blog already, check it out, seriously!

The Liebster Blog Award's main purpose is to be passed on to fellow bloggers throughout the vast awesomeness that is the blogosphere. And while I usually have noo idea who to pass them along to, I couldn't help but get sucked in after reading that I was not only asked questions, but made to create ones for those I pass it along to. How cool! I LOVE random facts about others, especially my fellow beloved bloggers. And with the opportunity to ask anything, I simply could not resist! So, here it goes!!

The rules of the Liebster Award are:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
3. Choose people to nominate and link them to your post.
4. Create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them.
6. And you can't tag back!!


Awarded!
I pass the lovely Liebster onto a few of my favorite people in the blogosphere:
A Very Sweet Blog (who has given me more than 1 of these, if I'm not mistaken ;D)


Here are my questions for your guys!
1. If you could trade closets with any person (alive or dead), who would it be?
2. What can you not leave the house without doing/having on your person?
3. What is one thing you wish you could change about yourself?
4. If you had the time & money, what is one thing that you would want to learn how to do?
5. What is your biggest fear?
6. Worst fashion crime you've ever committed (as in so bad, even you knew you shouldn't have but did anyway!):
7. Favorite song of the moment:
8. If money were no option, what single item would be in your shopping cart THIS SECOND? :)
9. If you could live in any decade besides the present, when would it be & why?
10. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
11. What inspired you to/why did you start your blog?


Jupe's Awesome Questions for Me:
1. Who is the person you most want to be like? I've always been one to look at someone and see the qualities that I didn't want to have, so I've never really looked at others as role models, persay (except if you count Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Dorothy Gale haha). At the end of the day I just want to be someone who is happy with her life, her decisions, and herself.

2. What qualities immediately attract you to someone as a friend? Someone who radiates kindness and sweetness, laughs a lot, and makes you feel like they've known you forever!

3. If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be? Uh! If only this were doable! Although I love and dream of Paris, I would have to choose my boyfriend's tiny Italian town in Calabria. I would love to weather the winter there, live in warm sweaters, make hot cocoa in the morning and play house with him until the summer reappeared. Plus, living without TV and 24 hour stores, away from the hustle & bustle of NYC is so amazing after awhile, I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather be!


4. Make a list of single words/phrases that define/inspire your personal style...
Define:
spontaneous
feminine
unexpected
simple
comfortable
These all sound COMPLETELY unrelated but my style can be all over the place sometimes!

Inspire:
balanced
vintage-y
Audrey-esque
clever
simple
chic

5. What is your worst quality or least favourite thing about yourself (haha tricky one)? For the past year or so I've become very anxious in stressful situations and I absolutely despise it! I'm a Leo so I'm used to being a strong lion type; flight just doesn't suit me!


6. If you were on death row, what would you choose for your last meal? This is so bad but a Big Mac with fries & Tarte Tartin for dessert.


7. If there were no monetary or lifestyle limitations, what career would you choose for yourself? An editor of a fashion magazine! I have wanted to be one for as long as I can remember, but print is unfortunately dying and the entire culture is SO competitive that I don't think I'd last a second.
Or a psychiatrist or lawyer. I could never, ever weather medical or law school! haha


8. Describe your favourite location/place to spend time? Anywhere where I can catch up with friends, snuggle with the bf, or daydream :)


9. What fictional character is most like you? This is SUCH a good question! So tough! The only character I can think of that is so close to me is Summer Roberts from The OC, with a little Veronica Mars thrown in there. Going old school but I truly can't think of any!! If anyone can think of any PLEASE let me know! Good one on this!! :D


10. What is your favourite work of art? & this, on the other hand, was without a second thought haha! Klimnt's the Kiss <3


11. How do you show/tell/demonstrate to others that you love them, and how do you feel most loved by others? I show people I love them by being there for them whenever they need me, no matter what. I feel that as a friend/lover to someone you should always be there in good times cheering them on & in bad time to comfort them.
I feel most loved by others when they think of me out of the blue, or do little things to show me they care, without me having to ask. It's such a fantastic feeling when you get a text from someone who thought of you & just wanted to let you know, or messages you. The little things are always the big things for me!


11 Things About Me:
  1. I am a total insomniac, especially when I shouldn't be!
  2. I don't know how to swim
  3. I am addicted to the show Community & think that everyone should watch it!! (seriously, go watch an episode!)
  4. I used to knit at lunchtime in high school (which earned me the nickname "nonna")
  5. I have scoliosis & even wore a back brace for a few years in middle school (but, stubbornly, not enough to fix me! haha)
  6. I can't see much without my glasses/contacts (& have actually walked right by my best friend & boyfriend on campus MANY times because of this)
  7. I'm the first one in my family to graduate from college... and go to grad school! 
  8. I am a Dollar Store addict!
  9. I love trying new things/new foods/new everything, I suppose
  10. My car's name is Harvey, he's a 1992 Buick Century with Hello Kitty interior :) 
  11. I have a reeeally bad obsession with cheese danishes lately! haha

Thanks so much again to the darling Cambria! If I nominated you, please let me know if you've filled out the questions, I'd love to see your answers :)!
