Stylishly Sweet Events & Liebster Award

Recently we were nominated by Hello Monday Design to participate in the Liebster Award. Thank you Kristen for thinking of us! Here were our questions:

1. What do like most about blogging?
Monica:  I love the creative process of it all. I love to write, even if no one reads it.  When I was little I would write all kinds of stories, and in my journals. Blogging is kind of like writing in a big diary for all the world to see!  

Danae: I love coming up with fun ideas and concepts, or just teaching someone how to do something they had trouble figuring out themselves. I love how it pushes me to be more creative and think outside of the norm.

2. Who are you inspired by?

Monica: My Mother. She's a hard working lady who provided me with every opportunity she could give me.

Danae: I'm going to have to go with my mother as well. She has the strength of 10,000 men, amazing work ethic and drive and her love for family and friends is like nothing I've seen. She's my rock for sure, and inspiration.

3. What do you enjoy doing when your not at work?

Monica: I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I love to watch movies! I love pilates and I love to shop!

Danae: I really love spending time with my husband and my cat Mikey. I love to hunt for vintage finds and love to read with a cup of tea close by. I also love being with friends and family, but I'm also kind of an old woman and love to be at home. :)

4. What is your favorite beauty product?

Monica: OH! I am beauty junkie! I have everything and anything. My favorite beauty product changes on the daily. Today, its probably my Loreal Voluminous Butterfly Effect mascara

Danae: I'd have to say my Clarisonic Pro. It has changed my life. I also love Stila liquid eye liner. It's the easiest and it looks great!

5. Where is your favorite vacation spot?

Monica: Paris…it's beautiful, and magical. 

Danae: So far, I'd have to say Playa del Carmen. We just went there for our honeymoon, so it's fresh in my mind, but I truly love the easy way of living and the ocean that feels like bath water.

6. What is one of your weaknesses?

Monica: One? I have many…let's see…Gummy bears and Doritos,  a good sale, and a high pair of heels.

Danae: I'd say I make myself too vulnerable to people sometimes. I'm not sure that it's ALWAYS a weakness, but I'm sensitive and sometimes that hurts me. I'm also utterly obsessed with anything cat related (or any animal really, as of late, it's been hedgehogs) and have a great love for pasta.

7. What is your favorite website or social media site?

Monica: Probably Pinterest! You can learn so much off of there!

Danae: Instagram for me. I definitely go on there multiple times a day and have met some really great people and have been inspired by some awesome businesses on there too.

8. If there was one thing you wanted to change about yourself what would it be?

Monica: I think I would like to be less shy.

Danae: I'd like to be a little more confident about my opinions and not allow people to make me feel bad about them, etc.

9. Are you a DIY'er or would you rather hire someone?

Monica: It really depends…..as much as I love to make things myself, sometimes its cheaper to hire someone.

Danae: I love to DIY. If I can make something, you can bet that I will.

10. What makes you happy?

Monica: My bunnies and cats and dog (yup), my closet, my friends, my family, a killer fitting dress.

Danae: God, my husband, my family, my kitty cats and hunting for deals.

11. If you could provide advice to new bloggers what would it be?

Monica: Just start…today, right now. Doesn't matter if it's perfect or if anyone will read it, just do it. 

Danae: Don't be scared to put yourself out there. Start today, because a year from now, you don't want to look back and wish you had started then.

Here are the rules for those that continue on with their nominations:

1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you. 
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions. 
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

As you can see we didn't follow the rules too well. We didn't get a chance to nominate 11 of you, so we thought we'd open it up to all you! If you want to participate, here are our questions to answer!

1. What do you like most about blogging?
2. Who inspires you?
3. What's your favorite holiday? and why?
4. What's your favorite blog?
5. If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present) who would it be?
6. What are you loving in Fashion right now?
