Liebster Award

Melanie of the blog Don't Cry Cowboy nominated me for Liebster award!
What's a Liebster award, you may ask? It's a fun way for new bloggers to connect and network a bit, reminiscent of a chain letter.

So here are my replies to the questions Melanie gave me to answer...

1. What perfume are you currently wearing? 
So glad you asked! Today I'm wearing Tokyo Milk Le Petit No. 2 Parfum-1 oz. It's my absolute favorite scent! I also really like Let Them Eat Cake and Kabuki by Tokyo Milk. I rotate between the three of these, depending on my mood.
2. What's an app you think we should all know about?
I'm a big fan of the Rhonna Designs app & Rhonna Designs Magic. I use them to edit some of my instagram photos and to make a lot of the design elements for my blog posts -- including this one! The apps aren't free and you have to buy the design sticker packs as in-app purchases. Compared to my coffee budget, a few dollars here and there on these gorgeous vector images is totally justifiable. Plus, I know I'll use them again and again!

3. What is the last item you bought? 
Presents for my puppies! This morning I realized that little Daisy had outgrown her puppy collar! I took my Charlie-pup for an adventure. We drove through Dunkin' Donuts and then went to PetSmart. I bought Charlie a little raccoon stuffy since his birthday is next week! He's going to be five! I bought Daisy a new collar. And a little Valentine's Day monster that she has already started destroying.

4. Do you read magazines? What is your favorite one? 
I don't currently subscribe to any magazines. I'll sometimes pick up Marie Claire or Cosmo if I'm at the airport or the beach. When I was planning my wedding, I was all about Martha Stewart Weddings. I follow Darling Magazine on instagram and have been meaning to subscribe to their print magazine.

5. Describe your phone case. 
My phone case right now is a cheap one I added to a ModCloth order to qualify for their $50 Free Shipping minimum. It's cute and gets the job done.

6. Whats your dream job? 
Oh, boy. I used to really want to be a wedding planner, but being realistic -- that would involve way too many weekend hours for my liking. And brides can be crazy. I have a pretty low tolerance for bullshit. I would love to own a boutique on a cute little main street somewhere. I'd sell dresses, accessories, gifts, and pretty things in general. Or I would love to be able to be a full time blogger with limitless funds to devote to craft experiments!

7. Give a fact your followers won't know about you. 
I'm such a picky eater! I'm all about pasta and cereal. I've come a long way from the days when I'd only ever order chicken fingers at restaurants, but still have a pretty limited palette. I hate trying new foods, it makes me anxious!

8. What's the most common misconception about you? 
Hmm, tricky one! I definitely give off a good-girl vibe, which is generally true. But it's always really funny the first time I swear around someone -- they are always so surprised and think it's funny. I swear all the [expletive] time in private company. I'm just classy and professional in public, what can I say?

9. Which store/ brand is the majority of your clothing from? 
ModCloth. No doubt about it. It's a sick obsession!

10. What's your dream holiday? 
I've never been to Europe! Chris and I want to plan a trip to Italy within the next couple years.

11. What's your guilty fashion / beauty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is browsing ModCloth for both New Arrivals and Sale items.
Also, lip products. I own a ridiculous amount of lip balms/sticks/glosses.

This was fun! Thanks for nominating me, Melanie!
