The Liebster Award

When I was doing my nightly ab workouts, I had checked my email in between exercises and saw that Mikkaela of The Southwestern Prepster {and a fellow Sun Devil!} had commented on one of my posts and she said that she had nominated me for The Liebster Award! I was very honored to be one of the ten she had chosen for this award!

The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers, from bloggers to the discovery of new bloggers with less than 200 followers. It also promotes communication between said bloggers. I am supposed to answer the 11 questions given to my from the person who nominated me. Then I nominate 10 more bloggers to pass on this lovely award to! So, without further a-do:

How did you decide on the title of your blog?
Since coming to Arizona State, I’ve fallen in love. Since it was something I was starting this blog in Arizona I wanted the name to incorporate it. It was meant to show my evolution of style as well and BOOM! I had my name!

What made you decide to start your blog?
It was right after the Tahoe trip I went on; the excitement was over and I was heading back to school in a month. I had finished my freshman year of college and felt very empty. I didn’t have softball or theater like in high school and I wanted something to give me the enjoyment and fulfillment that my extra-curriculars did. So in short, I was very sad and felt insignificant. Matt and i had also started our foodie blog, and i wanted to have one of my own just for me. Thus, The Arizona Prepster was born.

What is your Starbucks order?
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino sometimes with chips, sometimes without!

Where is your favorite place to shop?
I love Macy’s and Target! Target has really nice clothes but they’re easier on the price. Macy’s has so many options for clothing and, although they may be more pricey, they’re definitely worth the price. I also love J.Crew and J.Crew Factory! However, out of those three; Macy’s is where I shop the most! They have a sale every other weekend {at least it feels like it} and they ave good every day value brands!

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
If I could travel anywhere, it would be Europe. Once you fly into Europe, it’s easy {and inexpensive} to hop on a train to another European country! I’ve always wanted to travel to Europe {especially Italy}. I would also want to travel to Hong Kong and Dubai and some other non-European countries. I just really want to travel the world.

What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure? Do I have to name one? Because I won’t, I’m going to name a few. Netflix is definitely one. When Matt’s at work I love watching Gossip Girl or other series’ that aren’t on TV anymore. Another one is court shows. I love watching Divorce Court, Judge Judy and People’s Court!

Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Honestly, I have no idea. I’m still not sure what I want to do with my life. I’ll {hopefully} be blogging still, maybe I’ll be married, maybe I’ll be going for a Masters. All I know is I’ll be doing what I want to be doing and living life to the fullest; making sure I’m happy every day.
What is your favorite song at the moment?

I never have one favorite song; I have many. Some of them are: Hozier’s Take Me to Church, Maroon 5’s Sugar {if you haven’t watched the music video then check it out!}, Imagine Dragons’ Round and Round, and Awolnation’s Sail and Thiskidsnotalright {yes that’s actually how it’s titled}. These are only some of my favorite songs at the moment; I have more but that would probably take up too much of your time to go through them all.

What is one piece of advice you would give to other new bloggers?
It is not easy peezy lemon squeezy like everyone makes it seem; it really isn’t. As I’ve learned it takes a lot of thought and effort. However one piece of advice I have is that if you’re passionate about it and you like it then do it! But once it becomes more of a hassle than an enjoyment; you may need to take a hiatus and clear your mind. You should be excited to go blog and want to do that instead of homework {but still do your homework}. It should be fun, not strenuous. 

Where do you see your blog going in the next year?
I’m not really sure where I see it going. I hope it goes up {obviously} and continues to be successful. I love blogging so I’m sure it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon! But I hope to participate in collabs and linkups with some lovely bloggers.

Where does your blog inspiration come from?

One of the first blogs I read was Carly Heitlinger’s The College Prepster so she was my first inspiration. Then as I continued blogging I found Michaela of The Monogrammed Midwesterner {tagged below} and she became another one of my major inspirations!
