Liebster Award 2016

Crystal from One Millennial Girl has nominated me for the Liebster award for new bloggers. Crystal shares some great insight on family, fashion and her life as a millennial. Thanks Crystal for the nomination.

Here are the questions she asked her nominees, and my response to them:

1. What are the five things you can’t live without

  • High speed internet for streaming shows/ movies & staying in the loop
  • Finger foods (especially French fries)
  • My space heater (I keep one at home & in my office)
  • At least 7 hours of sleep (seriously, anything less than 7 hours & I have the worst next day ever)
  • Spicy food ( if I can, I put sriracha & habanero peppers on almost everything)

2. Who is the most important person in your life?

  • I would have to say my husband. I met my husband in my undergrad and we have been together through thick & thin for almost 9 years now. He is my rock.

3. Would you consider yourself to be an introvert or an extrovert?

  • I am definitely an introvert but have extrovert tendencies. In terms of first encounters and “working the room”, I am introverted, but once I am comfortable with meeting people, you can’t get me to keep quiet sometimes…lol. I also enjoy quiet time alone from time to time to recharge.

4. When is your birthday?

  • August… I am a Leo babe 😉

5. What is your favorite T.V show or movie?

  • They keep changing, but for now I would say Scandal & Suits

6. What did your childhood self want to be when you grew up?

  • A doctor. I actually got enrolled in my undergrad as a Biology student, but switched over to Business Accounting in the end of my second year. I now have a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting with a minor in Biological Sciences…lol weird combo I know.

7. Are you the only child?

  • No, I am the youngest of 6 brothers & sisters, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

8. If you could take a selfie with any celebrity, who would it be?

  • Kerry Washington (Scandal) or Gina Torres (Suits). I love the way they carry themselves…at least on the shows

9. Nsync or Backstreet Boys?

  • Backstreet Boys…of course

10. Favorite rapper?

  • I have never been a huge fan of rap. I am mostly an R&B and hip-hop girl.

11.What does your dream home look like?

  • A cozy 3 bedroom bungalow with a decent sized backyard where my 2-3 unborn kids & dog can play. Smaller sized home, easy to manage & clean…I hate cleaning.


Here are 10 Random facts about Myself:

  1. I prefer wearing yoga pants, than jeans if I could get away with it… there so comfortable
  2. I can consume a considerable amount of food for my height & size.
  3. The only part I don’t like about getting older is the fear of not accomplishing everything I would have liked to do.
  4. I find trying to keep up with social media exhausting at times…I might be dating myself here.
  5. Once a month I will have a lazy Saturday where I will order food & binge watch my favorite shows to catch up
  6. My biggest role models for marriage are my parents. 43 years married & counting.
  7. I find it very refreshing when people express how they truly feel & speak their mind in a respectful, kind and loving manner. Authenticity is a dying trait in our culture.
  8. After my experience with money and debt, I value simple living and saving for the future.
  9. I would love to have 4 kids, but will probably have 2 or 3 because of cost and time. I really enjoyed growing up in a large family.
  10. The pink ranger was my favorite power ranger when I was a kid. I also loved watching the magic school…randomly watch it on You Tube from time to time.

Here are the questions I chose to ask the bloggers that I nominated:

  1. What are your top 3 pet peeves?
  2. If you were allowed a “do-over” moment in your life, what would that be and why?
  3. If money wasn’t an object what would you do with your time?
  4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 12 hours, who would you want to be stuck with & why?
  5. What’s your favorite food of all time?
  6. What does a typical Saturday afternoon look like for you?
  7. What trait do you admire the most in yourself and others?
  8. What was your favorite T.V show growing up as a kid?
  9. If you could invite a celebrity over for dinner, who would you invite?
  10. Knowing what you know now about life, what 3 things would you warn your younger self?
  11. What do you consider a “deal breaker” in a relationship?

  2. Congratulations Leo babe 😉


  3. We have so much in common it’s actually ridiculous! Your five things you can’t live without? Mine are basically the exact same, except swap french fries for Doritos. Thanks for the nomination, gorgeous! And a well-deserved one for you.

  4. Awwww I love your post!!! We have a lot in common. I come from a large family (the youngest of 5), I consider myself to be an introvert, and I would definitely choose Backstreet Boys over Nsync!
