Liebster Award

Happy November y'all! (can't believe I'm actually saying that already...) I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Im excited to kick off this month with a blog award from the lovely Emily of Pretty Shiny Mine! Emily nominated me for a Liebster Award and asked some great questions that I can't wait to answers- here we go!

[Sidenote: I'm seriously obsessed with her simple/elegant blog and know y'all will be too (if you aren't already!). Go check her out and give her a follow, you won't regret it!]

1. Where is your favorite place you've ever traveled?

This is a really tough one! I studied abroad during the summer of 2012 and visited Belgium, France, the UK, Spain, and Italy and loved each place in a different way. If I absolutely had to choose though I would probably say Barcelona, Spain- It was just such a vibrant, lively, incredibly beautiful city! From eating their amazing paella to the swimming in the Mediterranean it was just a dream location to experience.

2. How long have you known your best friend?

I met my best friend Makenzie one of the first nights of college freshman year (2010!). She was roommates with a girl that I went to high school with, and it didn't take too long before we realized we were basically the same person, or brain twins as we like to call it. We became pretty much inseparable and I practically lived in their room the rest of freshman year! We're now roommates and sorority sisters too, and I can't imagine my college experience without her! Here's us as babies that first year- 

3. What are your favorite types of flowers?

Peonies for sure.

4. Big city or quiet life?

Hmm. I'm going to be wishful and say I hope to have both of these throughout my life! I'd love to have an internship in a big city like New York, but I think I'd like to live in a quieter city like Charleston once I settle down! 

5. Why did you start blogging?

I could go on and on about this one, and already have! Go read why I started SPC in my very first blog post - here!

6. Who is the first person you go to with good news or bad news?

Probably my Mom or my boyfriend Brandon. These two are always there for me no matter what. I know they will cheer me up in my down times and celebrate with my during the good! 

7. Be honest: do you like dressing up or dressing down more?

Well, I don't get to dress 'up' that much so when I do I really love it! However, I really love dressing for everyday life as well. I'm going to have to call a tie on this one! 

8. What beauty product would you love to splurge on?

I'm not a huge beauty product gal. I keep it pretty simple and most of my makeup is from the drugstore or Clinique. However, there's something about a fancy lipstick that always screams 'ladylike' to me. So if I did splurge it would probably be on a great tube of lipstick!

This was so much fun! Thanks again to Emily for nominating me! Hope y'all have a great weekend!
