Honored. Thrilled. Excited!

AWARD1

My short list of emotions right now.

Today I am so honored and excited to share with ya'll that I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by Elizabeth Kate of vivieimpara.com!

As I throw myself deeper into the world of blogging, I am learning that one of the greatest rewards is engaging with the vast community of other bloggers out there. I am so excited to move forward on this journey and continue to form connections with my fellow bloggers.

This award is a vessel for bloggers to connect and share each other and I am SUPER honored to have been thought of by one of my peers.

Here is a little more information about the Liebster Award:

Once nominated for the Liebster Award, nominees will then have to nominate 11 new bloggers with 1,000 followers or less. Then bloggers will have to answer the questions below in a blog post and then link back to the blogger who nominated you and pass it along!

So let's get on with these questions then!

How did you come up with your blog name?

After a long weekend in Myrtle Beach with a group of girl friends I knew I could not wait any longer to start blogging. It had been something I was chasing after for quite a while, and after reading on blogs for hours on the beach I was ready. The name just came about. I LOVE alliteration. I think that phrases or names with alliteration carry more power than those without. I wanted to blog about my two favorite things, fashion and food, and so The Fashionable Foodie was born. It is a bit literal, but my blog is just like me - what you see is what you get.

Why did you start your blog?

I started blogging to create an outlet for myself to talk about things that I love! I was so inspired by the blogs that I was reading that I wanted to create a playground, and a brand, like that for myself.

What do you love most about blogging?

Currently, I have been blogging for about 6 months. My great loves of this art are changing everyday. I love feeling like I am moving towards creating a sustainable brand for myself. I also love feeling like I am slowly becoming more of a part of a community and support system. I hope in 6 months if I am asked the same question the answer will be that I love collaborating with other bloggers!

What is the most ridiculous but very cool fashion trend you have ever participated in?

EVER? Woah. That might take a while. I am a risk taker when it comes to fashion and beauty. So, when I see someone doing something I think is awesome I am not afraid to try it.

Most likely, my chart of hair colors over the years would be the most outrageous. If you can think of a color, my hair has been there.

What’s one goal you wish to accomplish this year?

In 2015 I would like to collaborate with at least 5 other bloggers on fun projects and posts! I would also love to break 1,000 on Instagram.

How would you describe your personal style?

I was once asked this in an interview for a local magazine. My answer? Hodgepodge. I know it sounds awful, but it just fits. I am no one thing or look. I am a collection of many things!

What is your favorite social media site?

Is there a class for Instagrammers Anonymous? If so, sign me up. I LOVE Instagram. I check it every morning when I wake up. Starts the day off right.

What is your favorite store?

I love to shop at local places. There is a gift shop on my block in Chattanooga called Blue Skies that I love to visit. I love local boutiques as well.

I also adore, Target, TJ Maxx and Urban Outfitters.

What is one fear you would like to conquer?

In anyone, I believe there is some fear to totally be yourself no matter who you are around. I would like to squash that fear like a bug. I am happy to say that blogging has put me well on my way!

And the nominees are..... (drum roll please)...
