Liebster Award!

To all of you checking out my blog, I'm super excited to say that I've been nominated by the lovely Ivy: stylelifelovely.blogspot.ca for the liebster award YAY!!  

The Award:
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

Here are the rules for receiving this award:
1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You must pick 11 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
4. You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.


1. What is your favorite mascara?
Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express is, hands down, my absolute favorite mascara!!!!
2. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
As a little girl, my dream was always to become a model!  I actually took courses on how to properly apply makeup, how to present myself at a casting/what to bring, how to publicly speak properly (I still suck at this one though), etc.  As our "graduation", we were part of a fashion show for this company!  It was really a ton of fun :)

3. What is an item on your beauty wishlist?

Well I currently have 33 items on my beauty wishlist.......but one item in particular would have to be the Hello Flawless foundation by Benefit.  I keep hearing really really good things about this product and so I would LOVE to pick this up someday!!

4. Do you have any special talents? If so, what are they?

I love to sing.  I've been singing since I was a little girl, but mostly it's just been to myself.  I'm way too shy to actually try and take that anywhere though.  I do have a youtube channel if you want to check that out: youtube.com/user/mdaoust25/videos but there aren't very many videos seeing as I just hid a bunch of my old ones ahahah!  My family has always tried to get me to try and take this further but I really like just doing it for fun.  It's something I do for myself!

5. What is your favorite type of vacation (mountains, beach, city, etc.) or what is a favorite vacation you've ever been on?
I recently went to New York City with the art students from my school (which included a bunch of my friends) and I had such an amazing time there.  Although there's a TON of people, I really enjoyed the city no matter how crowded it was.  I really love museums (we went to many) and plays (Newsies was incredible!!!!) so that was definitely a great part of my trip.  It's just a really cool place to be and I would love to go back. (NY Fashion Week would be unreal!!).

6. What season do you prefer for fashion?

I'd say it's a tie between summer and fall because I love being able to wear shorts and skirts in the summer but I'm also OBSESSED with scarves, like the amount of scarves I have is actually ridiculous.  I also really love riding boots and you mainly get to wear those in the fall so that's definitely a plus.  I like the colors for both seasons too, the bright summer colors are so much fun but the more neutral and red tones of the fall are gorgeous!!

7. How many different countries have you visited and name one you'd like to visit but haven't yet?

I don't exactly think this counts but I was born in Switzerland so I was there for a year or two buuuut other than that I've only been to the U.S and Dominican Republic.  Picking just one country I'd like to visit but haven't yet is so hard!!!!  I guess I'd have to say France.

8. What is your favorite brand of nail polish?

It's a mix between Essie and O.P.I.  I like the brush from Essie but hate that it takes forever to dry, and I hate the brush from O.P.I but I love that it drys fast enough!

9. What is your favorite makeup tool or brush?

Ummmh.....my hands lol or a sponge I guess.

10. How would you describe your personality?

I hate when people ask this question come on!!!!  I'm definitely a shy person at first, but once you get to know me/when I'm with my friends I'm much more outgoing, and I'm definitely very weird....but in a good way!!  Let's just say I'm not your typical teenage girly girl hahaha

11. What is your all time favorite accessory?

Scarves.  1000000% without a doubt, scarves. O B S E S S E D.  My favorite two are a grey and black, super thin, skull scarf and a more fun printed fall colored scarf from Afghanistan.
