Lucky Me, I Was Nominated For The Liebster Award

I am fortunate enough to be a part of the Her Campus Blogger Network with a talented group of bloggers. When I saw that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award, I was so excited, but I had no idea what it was...

The Liebster Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers and gives bloggers the chance to answer 11 questions about themselves and tag other bloggers to answer some more questions! It's not really an award, but it's something fun that gives bloggers the chance to get to know each other. Thanks Tricia from Beauty & a Blog for nominating me! 

So, here are my answers to Tricia's questions. 

1. Backstreet Boys or N*Snyc?  Why?
Backstreet Boys, definitely. I had the biggest crush on all of the boys. Literally all of them. One of my favorite songs (still) is "Backstreet's Back". N*Sync's songs don't even compare...Oh and they were a little more BA than N*Sync. All girls like boys that are a little more bad, right? 
2. If you could cast anyone to play you in a movie, who would it be?  
Not that I think I'm nearly as cool as her, but Jennifer Lawrence. I loved her role in Silver Linings Playbook (and obviously so did everyone else). She has that sarcastic, witty thing going for her that I think I have. She also has the darker, questionable side to her which I definitely share with her. I felt that I was similar to her character in Silver Linings. I think that we definitely have similar personalities and she could play "Natasha Whitby" really well. 
3. What is something that you are most proud of?  
I'm most proud of my mother. She is superman in a little, tiny woman form. She works so hard to give me everything I could ever ask for. AND she is hilarious without even trying. Sometimes I think my friends like her more than me. 

4. If you were to die today, what is one word that you hope to be remembered by?  
5. What is something you've done this past year that would surprise your previous self? 
I've apologized more often. Being an only child, I grew up getting what I want. I'll admit it, I'm spoiled and stubborn. But this year, and my roommate can vouch for me, I've been able to get over being stubborn and having things my way. I have been able to forgive and forget. 
6. What is your biggest pet peeve and why? 
When people tell me what to do, I don't  do it  (it must be the only child in me). You can ask me nicely to do something, but it's my pet peeve when a friend tells me to do something. 
7. What is the top thing on your bucket list?  
It sounds cliche and simple and not that creative, but I don't think I will have lived life to the fullest without traveling the world. I honestly think I have some sort of travel-separation anxiety because whenever I travel, I get really attached. My mom was fortunate enough to travel the world "before she had me". I would like to be part of my own "Eat, Pray, Love". Some places that are on my bucket list are Amsterdam, Barcelona, Sydney, Dubai, Morocco and Brazil. I'd like to go to Lebanon as well (Lebanese food is my favorite)! I've been to Bali as a kid since my mom is from there, but I need to go again! I studied abroad in Florence, so I really would like to get back there as well. 
8. What is something that you always need with you? (besides the obvious like cell phone and keys) 
I always need any sort of lip product (lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick). I feel naked without anything on my lips and it's really important to wear lip balm. 
9.  What is your biggest beauty secret? 
Everyone could use some concealer. It brightens your under eye area and highlights your face. I never skimp on concealer. It just makes your skin look brighter, healthier and more luminous without looking like you have too much makeup on. Apply it under your eyes, brow bone, above your brown bone, your cheekbones, on your cupid's bow and corner your lips. I like to draw a triangle below my eyes (down the nose and diagonally up to my temples) to really add a nice Kim K glow. 
10. What is the best prank you've ever played on someone? 
I play jokes on people all the time so it's hard to come up with one, but my friend told me about one prank that I had to try: hide in the showers at parties and scare people as they walk in to use the bathroom. It's hilarious!

11. Are you an early bird or a night-owl?  
Night-owl, for sure. I can stay up until 5am easily, but do not try and wake me up at 8am. 

So here are my questions:
1. If you could have been born in another era, what would it be? 
2. What do you pin the most on Pinterest?
3. What is your dream job? 
4. Who's your favorite Disney princess?
5. What was your favorite Nickelodeon show? 
6. Where would you live if you could live in any part of the world for free?
7. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? 
8. What did you do over spring break?
9. Which blogs inspire you the most? 
10. What is your favorite part about Spring? 
11. If a genie gave you three wishes, what would they be?

  1. I was always a huge Backstreet Boys fan too. In fact, no one in my elementary school really listened to N*SYNC... I didn't even hear of them until it was way past their prime!

    PS, thanks for nominating me! I posted my answers yesterday! :)
