Liebster Award!

I've been given the "Liebster Award" by Sorcha of In Someone's Eyes. This is so amazing, and I love the idea behind this award. It's all about recognizing blog under 200 followers and showing them love. Sometimes it really is hard to keep moving forward if you feel like you're not reaching anyone, but there is always someone reading, and this is a great way to show that. 

The first "rule" for this award is to list 11 facts about yourself. 

1. It's really hard to find hats that fit because my hair is so big.
2. I have two 20 lb cats.
3. Bargain shopping is what I live for. I cannot wait for yard sale season.
4. I have a lip products addiction.
5. My favorite food of the moment are "Cuties" clementines.
6. I hate my job.
7. I drink my coffee with either creamer and no sugar, or sweetener and no creamer. Never both.
8. I love love love Art History.
9. I'm addicted to Breaking Bad. I started watching it on Netflix and can't stop!
10. I own tons of jeans, but I can't remember the last time I wore any.
11. I've never dyed my hair.

The second "rule" is to answer the 11 questions given to me by my nominator

1. If you could grab an interview with ANYONE to feature on your blog, who would it be and why?
Kavita of SheWearsFashion or Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter. Kavita is the person who really inspired me to start my own blog, and I often draw inspiration from her. And Louise is just such a bubbly person!

2. What is the reason behind your blog name? 
This is answered in my "What is a Style Duckling" page, I'll like it ->here<-

3. What is your most recent beauty product you have purchased?
I literally just spent $20 on products from e.l.f. on their website. It was a myriad of brushes, and eyeshadow pallet, and three new blushes/bronzers.

4. Would you recommend this product and why?
I haven't gotten them yet, but I'll make a blog post review and video on them when I do!

5. What is your favourite store? (High end or high street)
Probably either H&M or American Apparel.

6. Where is your favourite destination you've travelled?
I haven't travelled much, but I loved New York City when I visited with my school in high school.

7. Why did you start blogging?
I really needed an outlet for my fashion thinking since many of my friends are tired of hearing my blab, I'm sure.

8. Who is your favourite blogger?
Oh this is the dreaded question. I love Amber from Amberlee Tea, Kavita from SheWearsFashion, Sammi from BeautyCrush, Louise of Sprinkle of Glitter, Zoe from Zoella, Marion from Marionberry, Krystin from Suburban Faux-Pas, and many more.

9. Which celebrity style do you admire most?
It might be cliche, but Mary Kate Olsen is such an inspiration to me. It must be the inner 90s child shining through. I've also recently discovered Miley Cyrus's new look is very inspiring!

10. What is your favourite foundation?
I'm actually on the hunt for a favorite right now, so anyone please leave a comment if you have a great favorite!

11. I've cut this short by one question seeing as it's pancake day. Go and make yourself some pancakes!
Great! I love pancakes!

The last "rule" is to make up 11 questions for the 11 bloggers (with fewer than 200 followers) I'll be nominating.

1. If you have to choose, would you wear makeup but boring clothes or fashionable clothes but no makeup?
2. What is your favorite drink?
3. If you could attend any school for any subject, where would you go and for what?
4. Are cats evil?
5. What is your 5 favorite things about yourself? (you have to pick!)
6. What is your favorite thing about your blog?
7. Do you have any updates in the works?
8. If you have to only use one social media site, what would it be?
9. Would you ever have plastic surgery?
10. Would you rather cut off all your hair or have your skin tone do a complete 180?
11. What is your #1 product that always makes you feel invincible?

So that's that! The 11 bloggers I'm nominating will be linked below, and I can't wait to read the responses!
