Blogger Tag...Liebster Award

Hey everyone!  I was recently tagged by Kristine from Tales of Teeni to do the Liebster Award blogger tag and answer some questions about myself.  She's a great new blogger and it would be great if you guys checked her out.

Here we go with the tag...

 "This little award is all about discovering new blogs and helping those with less than 200 followers to get recognized."

The rules are as follows.

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.

2. They must also answer the 11 questions the ' tagger ' has set for them.

3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.

4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.

5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.

6. There's no tag backs.

My questions from Tales of Teeni:

1. When did you fall in love with makeup?
I always liked makeup but I really fell in love with makeup when I was 20 and discovered MAC.

2. Who inspired you to start blogging?
I had been wanting to start a blog for a long time but it wasn't until an old friend of mine from Tennessee  started making youtube videos to share her passion for makeup inspired me to kick it off.  You can check her out  Melmphs here.  Blogging provides me with a great outlet to share my passion and my thoughts with others. 

3. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Italy.  I visited Rome in April, and I honestly could have stayed there forever.  My second choice would be Hawaii.

4. What is your dream profession?

Hopefully living in Florida, a college graduate, and just enjoying my boys. 

7. Favorite luxury makeup brand?

8. Favorite place to buy clothes?
I live at the beach and love surf brands, so I usually shop at surf shops for summer clothes.  But some of my other favorite stores are Express, Forever 21, H&M, and Victoria's Secret. 

9. What makes you the happiest?
My husband and my 2 little boys, but a trip to Sephora or the MAC counter are close seconds.

10. Favorite book?
I don't know that I have a favorite book, but my favorite fiction author is James Patterson.
