liebster award

liebster award | marlee and youExciting news! I’ve been nominated for the liebster award by fellow blogger +Jess at http://oodlesojess.blogspot.ca. I love that the concept of this blog award is to help promote new/small blogs to expand their audience. Such a great way to build community!

Without further ado, here are the rules:

1. You have to link back to the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they asked you within their liebster award post.

2. You must pick 11 nominees for the liebster award and tell them that they've been nominated. (You cannot pick the person who nominated you.)

3. You must ask your nominees 11 questions of your choice.

My answers to Jess' questions:

1. What made you start your blog?
I started this blog after being inspired by other bloggers and wanting to pass on my own opinions and advice on literally everyday life things. I love connecting through social media, websites and blogs.

2.  Favourite makeup brand? 
I’m a Covergirl fan for sure! Being a student, I have a very small budget for high-end makeup and I love that Covergirl offers good quality for reasonable drugstores prices. 

3. What do you like to do when you have some free time? 
Fun fact: I play piano! I love music, especially making my own music. I’m currently learning my way through a new piano book I got for Christmas by one of my favourite French-Canadian artists Beatrice Martin from Coeur de Pirate. 

4. What can we expect from your blog?
I don’t want my blog to be labeled strictly as “beauty” or “fitness” or “cooking” but I want it to be a little bit of everything. I’ll be sharing interesting and share-worthy life happenings, while also posting product reviews, opinions on books, recipes I’ve tried (and succeeded at) and even some DIY projects.

5. Elegent french nails or stylish nail art? 
I’m a big fan of nail art. French manicures, in my opinion, are a little too formal for my everyday taste. Stay tuned for future nail art ideas/designs here on my blog! 

6. If you could have your dream job, what would it be?
This might be a little childish, but I would say I’m a child at heart anyway. My dream job is to work as a princess at Disney World. I adore everything Disney and would love to be able to work in a magical place “where dreams come true” on a daily basis.

7. Where do you see yourself in a year's time?
In a year, so much could or could not have happened. I’m hoping to go to Germany this summer, so (*fingers crossed*) in a year’s time, I’ll be more cultured with eyes wide open and full of wanderlust for the rest of my days...

8. What would you say to someone who wanted to start a blog?
Do it for you! Don’t try to mimic something that’s already out there. Enjoy the blogging process, reach out to the blogger community, and hey, maybe internet success will follow. If you blog to please yourself, it can bring so much joy!

9. Winter or Summer?
Summer, no doubt! In the summer, there is no school, I can wear shorts, go swimming... days are longer, the seasonal foods are better... and I’m just an all-around jollier person in the summer :)

10. Favourite song at the moment?
I'd have to say XO by Beyonce. I can't get over her new album! 

11. Who is you inspiration?
My grandmother is definitely an inspiration to me. She is one of the most selfless people I know, caring for people day in and day out. I hope to be as generous and loving as she is.
