'Laine Blogger Award'

So this weekend I was nominated by Polos Pearls & Bows and Style Me Preppy for the "Laine Blogger Award." This is a fun way for fellow bloggers to get to know each other a little bit better by sharing their answers to a few random questions! Since I am a relatively new blogger this is my first time doing one of these type posts. Thanks so much for nominating me y'all!

-Tag the blogger who tagged you
-Award five more bloggers

The 5 Questions:
1. What is your current beauty obsession?
2. What is 1 beauty item you wished you owned?
3. What kind of posts are your favorite posts to write, and read?
4. What inspired you to become a blogger?
5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now?

My Answers:
1. My current beauty obsession is...
It's hard to pick just one! I guess I'll say that right now I'm loving my Lilly Pulitzer "Beachy" Perfume. Since Lilly quit manufacturing perfume well over a year ago the only places you can find it are on eBay or the occasional TJ Maxx. I never had any Lilly perfume when they were originally making it so I was super excited to find this perfume at TJ Maxx about a month ago. The scent is sooo perfect for summer and the bottle is absolutely precious. I previously included this perfume as one of my Friday Favorites.

2. One beauty item I wish I owned...
I would have to say a magnifying mirror with a built-in light. One that could travel easily would be a plus! Surprisingly I don't own a magnifying mirror and when I used one that was at my best friend's beach house a couple weeks ago it occurred to me that it would be nice to have one of my own, rather than having to lean against the bathroom mirror.

3. My favorite posts to write and read...
Definitely fashion and style! I love to share my favorite items from my closet and how I put outfits together, as well as my top picks from the current collections of my favorite preppy brands (especially Lilly Pulitzer!), and my favorite examples of current trends. And I love to see style ideas and favorite items from fellow bloggers!

4. What inspired you to become a blogger...
Fashion has been a passion of mine that has really grown over the past two years or so, and I am definitely known as a fashionista in my circles of friends. I have a couple friends who often tell me they admire my sense of style. And I love reading magazines like People Style Watch that share the editors' favorite clothing and beauty items. So I had the idea to start a fashion blog where I could share my favorite clothes and accessories as well as fashion advice. I wanted to blog as a hobby for myself as well as an outlet to share my thoughts on fashion with others-both friends and others who happen to stumble across my blog. I launched this blog in October 2011 but for the first six months posted VERY sporadically (approximately once a month or even less often). Then in late April 2012 after reading the blogs of dedicated preppy bloggers (especially Katie at Let's Be Preppy) I became determined to post regularly! And since then I have blogged at least 3-4 times a week! Although this originally started out as a fashion blog I have branched out from just clothing and accessories and have also enjoyed sharing some of my favorite beauty buys, music, quotes, books, and foods!

5. The nail polish I'm wearing right now is... 
"If You Moust You Moust" from the new OPI Minnie Mouse collection. I love it so much I just devoted a whole post to it!

  1. I didn't know that Lilly didn't make perfume anymore. I have Wink, but there isn't much left. I'll have to look for another one. Chanel Chance is light and an everyday scent. Maybe that will work.

    And, love the OPI. I don't know how you give yourself a manicure. My left hand looks great, but my right hand looks like I've given the wand to a 5-year-old.

    Finally, you inspired me with your response to the question about why you blog. I'm in the process of working with a designer, and then I'll start.

    So you know, we follow each other on Twitter.
