Liebster Award

by

Hey, dolls!

I had such a blast after work today doing a closet consult for a couple young fashionistas! It’s crazy how fast the time can go when you are doing something you love and I feel so lucky! 🙂 I can’t wait to do some shopping for them this weekend to add what’s missing from their wardrobes and round out their individual styles! Style hunting here I come!!! Best way to spend my free time! Need some help with your wardrobe or your shopping? Let’s set something up!! Head over to my stylist page for more information or shoot me in e-mail through my contact page!

So I was so sweetly nominated today for a Liebster Award by the adorable Kyla behind the blog Ky Marie C. The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with under 200 followers on any individual social media platform from fellow bloggers. In order to accept the award, the nominator will provide 11 questions about you and your blog that you must answer. So here are the questions I got from Kyla:

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog?

If you know me, you know that I am about as girly as they come, so I wanted my blog name to reflect that. I have always loved the saying that refers to leaving a trail of sparkles behind you where ever you go and what that implies for the kind of life you’re living. So I did a play off of that and loved how it sounded: “glitter where she goes,” and I hope to live that kind of life and maybe encourage others to as well!

2. What made you decide to start your blog?

I always wanted to blog but didn’t have the time or energy in the last few years. When I decided to leave my styling position and nanny full time I finally had the extra energy to be creative and do something I really wanted to do. The hubs had also been encouraging me to do it for years and once we started designing it, I knew it was what I really wanted to be doing.
3. What is your favorite food?

OMG I have so many favorites. The hubs and I eat tons of Mexican and had that at our wedding and I never get sick of it! But I also love brussel sprouts and hummus and gummy bears and chocolate and champagne and coffee, ha.
4. Where is your favorite place to shop?

Nordstrom, of course.

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be & why?

The hubs and I really want to go to Europe this summer and the list of countries on our list is long but Italy, France and Spain are at the top of the list. We’ll see what ends up happening but I can’t wait to shop and explore and learn from other cultures!!

6. What’s your favorite pastime other than blogging?

Besides being with my family and friends, I love to read! Ever since I learned how to read my parents were prying my nose out of books to do other things but I just could never get enough. It’s the best being all cuddled up with coffee or wine and getting lost in a good book. It’s such a good escape! And shopping comes right after that, guilty.
7. What’s your favorite post you’ve written & why?

I loved the series I did for November, the 30 Days of Thanks because it reminded me everyday to count my blessings. I know that’s not just one post but like I always say, it’s the little things that mean the most.
8. A long lost relative gives you a large sum of money, what do you do with it?

I would pay off my car and buy our first house and hire one of our favorite designers to help us make it our dream home. Then help my family with some of their debts and set up our adoption fund so we can start that process going. The hubs and I are so excited to hopefully be able to save some little cutie(s) somewhere in the world, someday and we know it’s expensive but so worth it!
9. What is your all time favorite movie?

I love ‘Gone with the Wind’ and every Disney movie.
10. Where do you see your blog going in the next year?

I hope to continue helping women find their style and maybe get a little inspiration from the looks I put together. I would love to continue adding more regular shopping clients to my schedule too through people reading my blog. I put a lot of my blog goals for the next couple years in my 101 list so check out all those details, here!

11. Where does your blog inspiration come from?

I feel like there is inspiration everywhere if you just take the time to notice it. My friends and family and Riley and crazy crafty DIY-ers and other bloggers all inspire me and challenge me and make me want to share my ideas and be a better person and have a voice.

I hope you enjoyed my answers and thanks again for nominating me, Kyla! I nominate the ladies behind these 8 blog:
