Liebster Award!

I received a Liebster Award nomination last week and have finally gotten around to doing my part (curse you, other responsibilities!).  I was so touched to receive the nomination since I’ve only been blogging since January, and I’ve been a bit MIA the last few weeks because of work and life and all that jazz.   In case you didn't know (I didn't), the Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to show a bit of love for each other, and help others get a bit more exposure.

The rules are as follows:
  1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers, who have less than 200 followers on twitter and link them. (I may have cheated a little.  Some bloggers have a few more than 200 followers.)
  4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
  5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.
So, without further ado, thank you so much to the wonderful Random Musings for the nomination!
  1. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?  I still have Avengers: Age of Ultron on the brain, so I think I’ll say telekinesis like Scarlet Witch. 
  2. If you could interview anyone, alive or dead, for your blog who would it be and why?  Gah!  There are way too many interesting people in the world to choose from.  Maybe Emma Watson or Angelina Jolie?  I find both of them incredibly inspiring, and the humanitarian work they do really interests me.
  3.  What are your 3 handbag (or pocket) essentials?  My iPhone, a good book, and a lipstick.
  4. If your house was on fire and you could only save one thing (not including people and pets) what would it be and why?  An heirloom pendant that has been in my family for nearly 200 years.  It’s given to the eldest daughter on her eighteenth birthday, so it’s been in my possession for 7 years now.   There is a great deal of history to that piece of jewelry, and I feel as though I’m its guardian until there is another generation to pass it on to.
  5. If someone offered you £1 million to be filmed 24/7 for a month (including bathing, toilet, sex, the works) and be put on YouTube would you do it?   I don't know! 
  6. True love or unlimited money?  True love.  Even if I’m determinedly single I’m still a bit of a romantic.
  7. If you go time travel 10 years into your future and see yourself, but be unable to change the outcome, would you do it and why?  Nope.  Then I’d have to live the next ten years knowing the good, the bad, and the ugly of what will happen to me without having any sense of control.  It seems like a miserable existence.  People aren’t meant to have that sort of knowledge.
  8. At what age would you say you were happiest?  I was pretty happy at 21-22, my last year at Cornell.  I was surrounded by my incredibly brilliant group of friends, doing the stuff I loved.
  9.  If you could change 1 thing about your life what would it be and why?  I would have dropped pre-med sooner.  I stuck it out for my entire freshman year at Cornell, but I already knew around that October that pre-med wasn’t for me.  That year was one of the most stressful of my life and my GPA never quite bounced back from those classes.
  10. What is your all time favorite post you've written on your blog?  I think my post on being determinedly single is my favorite.  It was great to sit down and try to really articulate why I feel the way I feel.  I also got some terrific and supportive reaction to it.
  11. Sweet or savory?  Sweet!
My 11 questions are:
  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What is your favorite film of all-time?
  3. What do you love most about yourself?
  4. If you could invite three people (alive or dead) to a dinner party, who would it be and why?
  5. Are you doing any traveling this summer?  If so, where are you going?
  6.  Extrovert or introvert?
  7. What’s your favorite beauty product?
  8. Do you speak any foreign languages?
  9. What’s your biggest pet peeve?
  10. What are your three favorite blogs to follow?
  11. What’s your favorite quote?
Now for the nominations!  I nominate the following bloggers to answer my questions and take part in the Liebster Award: @theshelfsociety @BlameRainBeauty @themiscmusings @mycupofbeautyuk @lovefromlucky @OlColBlog @haileysworkshop @AnnieMACBlog @katsyxo @melodyyannep @stylealfresco
