About a week ago I was nominated by the beautiful Marie of Marie's Bazaar for the Liebster award!
The purpose of this award is to recognize the hard work of new + upcoming bloggers and to introduce you to new bloggers to follow. Once someone is nominated, they are asked to answer a series of eleven questions that reveals information about them you may not find out in their daily posts. They are then asked to nominate 11 new bloggers.
1: How did you get into blogging?
I've been fashion obsessed for as long as I can remember! One day in college I started a blog - it was one of those reposting pictures that inspire you kind of blogs (think They All Hate Us). But that quickly faded and I didn't keep up with it. A fashion blog chronicling my outfits, life, etc. was something I always wanted to but I wanted to make sure I did it right. Well, that turned into waiting much too long to post it when finally one day my boss called me into his office and showed me his friend's blog and said, "This is something you should definitely be doing." So I did. He gave me that extra push I needed to launch Sweet & Sauer. I'm new to the blogging world and definitely learning as I go but it's been such a fun journey so far!
2: If you could have anyone's closet, who's would you want?
I have to choose just one?! That's tough. So I'll pick two :) I'd love to have Lauren Conrad's closet, I lover her simple yet chic style. I'd also love to have Olivia Palermo's closet. She's such a style icon to me and always puts together such beautiful outfits.
3: Who's your celebrity crush?
I've always had a crush on Adam Brody ever since the OC days. I have a weakness for funny guys, plus he has a cute smile :)
4: First thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Travel! Ok and maybe a little shopping.
5: One song on your playlist you're embarrassed by but would never delete?
Oh man that's tough. My playlist ranges from Rap to House to Acoustic to Pop. I'd probably have to say my Shawn Mendes songs? Listening to a 16 year olds pop music seems slightly embarrassing, but they're so good!
6: You're going to a dinner party tonight, what are you cooking?
I love to cook! My current favorite receipe is hummus crusted chicken with veggies. I've been making it at least once a week. Here's the recipe. Otherwise I'd bring a yummy salad - my specialty!
7: All time favorite TV Show?
Gossip Girl. I'm also a sucker for bad reality TV, and anything on Bravo.
8: What's one beauty product you can't live without?
I have to pick one?! Hair product would be Batiste Blonde dry shampoo - I'm not kidding, I go through a bottle a week and buy it in bulk. Makeup product would probably be bronzer or mascara - both have a way of just brining that extra life to your face!
9: You're at Starbucks, what do you order?
Iced coffee with 1/2 vanilla, 1/2 cinnamon syrup and soy milk. Delish!
10: What's your cure for a bad day?
A killer Pure Barre class, a glass of wine, and some bad reality TV. Works every time :)
11: What's a fashion trend from your childhood that you would bring back?
Ooo I don't know! I'd say ripped jeans and Birkenstocks but those have already made a comeback. Jean skirts anyone? Jk ;)
