Liebster Blogger Award!

My blog was nominated for its first award! Yaaay! The lovely Candice of Healthy Hair Diary nominated me. Thank you lady! The word "liebster" means dearest in German. This award is given to bloggers by other bloggers and is a great way to not only to get to know the blogger, but also to find new blogs and spread the love. 

Here are the rules:
  • List 11 interesting facts about yourself.
  • Answer the questions presented by the blogger who nominated me.
  • Paste the award on your blog.
  • Nominate other deserving novice bloggers who have 200 or less followers and let the nominees know about the award by commenting on their blogs or via email.
  • Make up a set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

11 Facts About Me:
1 - I'm in my mid-twenties and I still love Tinkerbell and Tweety Bird. In fact, my car's name is actually Tink.
2 - I love thrift shopping. Anything from clothes to furniture.  
3 - Not a day goes by without me eating at least one bowl of cereal. I love cereal! The bad, childish kinds, too. 
4 - I love to read and to tell stories. I can be very animated about the latter. 
5 - I'm a very passionate person and a hopeful romantic (I don't like to say hopeless!) 
6 - I am terrible at doing my own nails. Yet, I keep buying nail polish. One day I'll be good at it... 
7 - I graduated from Northwestern University and I'm a pretty nerdy gal. I love to relate science and random facts to everyday things in conversations. One day you'll be able to call me Dr. Melanie  
8 - I am almost completely allergic to nature: trees, grass, pollen, ragweed, flowers, animals (all of them)... lol it's a sad fact.  
9 - I believe Jesus is the answer to every problem 
10 - I love DIY projects.  
11 - I'm soooo indecisive! took forever to do this post because of it.

Candice's Questions:
{1} What is your favourite colour? Pink!
{2} Describe your hair in 3 words. Thick, pretty and healthy!
{3} What length do you consider long hair? think around bra-strap length is long. 
{4} How many blogs do you follow? Umm... between Blogger and Bloglovin maybe around 40. Always looking for more. 
{5} What is your most expensive hair purchase to date? These box braids I am currently wearing! Easily the most I've ever spent at once on my hair. It stung a little bit, too.  
{6} Pink or red nails, which do you prefer? Definitely pink! In fact, up until this past year, I didn't wear any other color on my nails. They were always one of the many shades of pink. The only exception was french tips of course. 
{7} Do you have any hobbies, share at least 2? I'm not sure if I have any defined hobbies. I love taking pictures, but I don't know a lot about photography yet. I'm into scrap-booking and crafty type projects like that, but I don't do that as often as I would like. 
{8} What is your favourite TV series? Of all time? It would be The Cosby Show. Right now? It would be Scandal. I have never been so addicted to a show before!
{9} Are you left or right handed? Righty. I like to say I'm ambidextrous tho lol! I can do almost everything just as well with my left hand as I can with my right. Except my handwriting, which is why it's not actually a true statement.
{10} Have you ever been to the Caribbean, which island? No, but I would love to go one day!
{11} Do you have any siblings? Yep. I am one of 5 girls. 

When I was trying to decide which blogs to nominate, I realized some of the blogs that came to mind had received the award around the same time that I did. So, in an effort not to nominate the same people repeatedly and actually explore the hair blogsphere, I decided to also find a few blogs that were completely new to me to nominate. Hopefully some of them are new to you, too. These are the blogs I chose that either haven't received the award yet, are brand new to me or both:

Jas-Sherese of Lengthy Lovely Locks

Shereen of WishfulLengths

Lade of Hairducation
