Liebster Award

For starters thank you so much to Hannah from the Pink and Green Prep and Royar from My Life as a Young Southern Prep for nominating me! Definitely check out their blogs, they are around the same age as me and both are super sweet girls!

What the Liebster Award is: "Liebster" is a German word meaning kind, sweet, or generous.
  • Once nominated by another blogger, the blogger has to answer a set of questions asked to them by the person who nominated them, and then pass it on to other blogs they think would deserve the award if they chose to do so!
  • List 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions asked to you, write your own 11 questions, and nominate 11 other up and coming blogs.
  • Also in the post, you should thank whoever nominated you and attach a link of their blog, out of courtesy.
  • It is a great way to acknowledge other awesome blogs and bloggers and to get to know fellow bloggers better!

  1. Hi there! I love your blog and just wanted to say that I think you're awesome. My two cents on dorm room coordination: I think you should go for whatever bedspread you like--just pick something colorful enough so that it will mesh with your roommate's style. I couldn't wait to buy stuff for college and debated coordinating with my (then unknown) roommate, but a good friend of mine pointed out that you never know what someone else's financial situation is, and it would stink to put her/you in an awkward situation if she doesn't want to invest in dorm room bedding or if you guys can't agree on your favorite pattern or if she already is set on a particular style. You could always start shopping and keep the receipts just in case you decide to coordinate or if you change your mind (I know I did--twice--on the bedspread). Definitely wait on the big purchases (fridges, TVs) until you talk to your roommate. Once you are able to completely choose your roommate(s) after freshman year, it makes it so much easier to coordinate (and you still have three years to do so!)

    1. Thank you so much! Your ideas are super helpful and it reassures me that it is ok to go ahead and start shopping!

  2. Thank you so much for nominating me, Dorothy! You're so sweet. However, I was just nominated for the Liebster Award, so I just did a post on it! Therefore, I'm going to have to pass on doing another post. But thank you again for nominating me! I really appreciate it :-)


    1. No worries, hopefully it will still direct some friends your way! I can't wait to look at the one you've already done!

  3. thank you for nominating me girly :)
    I'm going to post my answers later today!

  4. Thank you so much for nominating me! It means the world to me!
    It'll definitely be up later this week!


    P.S. I really like Nicki Minaj for pump-up music as well! I always have her songs on replay right before a cross country/swim race!
