Liebster Award 2015

I am supper happy to be nominated today for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Kristen from Elizabeth, Marie and Me. I have been following Kristen on Instagram since the creation of my own instagram page a few months back and she has been such an inspiration to me. Her pictures and style creations are amazing, so I suggest everyone to take a look at her blog if you haven't done so already.

The Liebster Award is an award (or tag) presented to other bloggers as a sign of appreciation to them and to help expose their blog for other viewers of bloggers to see(or if you just love them and want everyone to know about it)! I personally think this is a very fun and cute idea!

11 Random Facts About Me:

1. I have a serious shoe addiction! Nothing finishes off an outfit better than a nice pair of shoes.

2. I am also a gamer! I grew up playing MMOs as young as the age of 9 years old. I've played everything from Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Harvest Moon... You name it!

3. I am a serious nature junkie. Some prefer the beach or the city, but nothing makes me happier than a weekend out in the mountains enjoying a nice hike.

4. I am obsessed with indie drama films. A few of my recent favorites are "Me and Earl and The Dying Girl," "How I Live Now," and "Comet."

5. I have a closet flush every year or so! I get bored really easily with certain styles and tend to sell off quite a bit of my pieces to make room for new ones.

6. My current favorite online shops are Asos and Missguided. I am addicted! I check any new items weekly in case I don't miss anything. (get a life Dalisse, I know!)

7. I am a book hoarder. I read constantly and have built up quite a collection. My personal favorite genres are Historical Fiction and Fantasy.

8. I have two beautiful and extremely annoying kitties! My first is a ginormous  tabby and the other is a loopy bicolor Black and White kitty.

9. I really want to move out of California! As much as I love the state, I would love to travel to other areas in the west. Colorado or Oregon, anyone?

10. I wear glasses. I don't wear them all that often in photos, but in person, they are glued to my face. 

11. I can't smell! I was born with congenital anosmia and haven't been able to smell anything since birth.

Q and A:

1. What inspired you to start your blog?
I have always had a passion for writing but never really had anything to write about. As a kid I created tons of forums for people to get together to write about anything but I acquired the idea of a blog sometime in High School. I was always really shy and my blog allowed me to express myself when I was never able to do so verbally.

2.  Who is your favorite style icon?
I change my style quite a lot. Because of this I never really admire any one style icon for too long. In general, instagram and other bloggers are my biggest style inspiration. Whenever I see my style changing, there will always be others helping me find my way. 

3. Can you name two of your favorite bloggers and explain why they are your favorites?
I am a huge fan of Lydia from Fashion Influx. Her style is so contemporary and minimal and something about that is just so edgy. She can piece anything together and it just looks so effortless. She is a reminder that less is sometimes more.

Another blogger I've been following for awhile and LOVE is Olivia from What Olivia Did... She is just so cute and her photos are so beautiful. Her style is very quirky and she gives me a bit of courage to rock something quirky myself. 

4. What's the one wardrobe essential you can't live without?
MY SHOES! I am quite the shoeaholic. If there is anything that gives me confidence, it's a great pair of shoes. Soon enough, I'll need an entire room dedicated to my shoes.

5. How would you describe your blogging style?
I really strive to make my style conversational. I try to bring humor and a little bit of sarcasm to certain things because as much as I have a passion for blogging, nothing should ever be taken too seriously. My wardrobe style is constantly changing and that's how I plan on keeping it. One day you'll see me wearing some trousers and a sheer button up and the next day you'll see me wearing 3 inch platforms and a tiedye dress.

6. What is your greatest achievement outside of blogging?
I have finally been able to go back to school all on my own. I was never able to get any financial aid in the past and after working my bum off for the past few years, not only have I been able to purchase my own car, but I am able to fully fund my return to college. I am extremely proud of being able to do this all on my own.

7. What was the last book you read?
The last book I've read was Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Mass. It is the third installment to the Throne of Glass series and I am OBSESSED. I definitely recommend this book if you want to see

8. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I really want to travel to Colorado and Oregon and hopefully in the future Norway, Belgium and Iceland. Heck, why can't I travel everywhere?

9. Where do you see yourself in five years?
This question is very difficult to answer because plans change so easily. I'm not sure where I see myself, but I really hope that I am at least happy and doing something I enjoy doing.

10. What was the first movie or book that made an impact on your life? 
I think one particular movie that I remember the most as a child was Big Fish. It was the first movie I watched and was able to understand the deeper meaning behind it. Of course I balled my eyes out afterwards and appreciated my parents a ton more afterwards.

11. What advice would you give someone who just started blogging?
It's a lot of hard work. I've seen many people start and give up, but let me just say right now... consistency and persistence is key. You can't do it because you want to be like someone else or you want to be known. You have to do it because it is something you love to do and something you are willing to work for. Don't be afraid to experiment and make friends. Having a supportive people around you really help as well.
