Liebster Blog Award


I just about squealed when I checked my Instagram account and saw the notification that I got nominated by the lovely Angela at Sunshine & a Little Pink! I was so honored to be chosen for this award, it's a great way to interact and get to know other bloggers! 

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 questions they gave you
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers and come up with 11 new questions for them to answer
4. Notify who you are nominating

Angela's questions:

1. How did you come up with the title of your blog?
Well, obviously my name is Sydney but all my friends and family call me Syd. And I always sign off my blog posts by saying "Sincerely, Syd". With this being said I have been contemplating changing my blog name, I'll be writing a post about it soon.

2. What are some goals you hope to achieve through blogging?
Through blogging, I hope to someday inspire someone to start their own blog. I love how you have a say in the blogging community, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the word!

3. Online shopping vs. going to the mall - which do you prefer?
Lately I have been loving online shopping, it's a bit of a problem! I always find great deals online, and exactly what I'm looking for. Plus you can do it in the comfort of your own home.

4. What is your favorite store and how would you say it describes your style?
I have really been loving Old Navy. As for my style, I don't have a defined style, I wear whatever I feel like in the moment, that's why Old Navy is perfect because they have so many styles, at such a great price!

5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hands down, without a doubt you would find me living on an island off the East coast. I have visited Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard both before and I've fallen in love with the area!

6. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would do with your winnings?
I would probably go out and buy a Tory Burch bag, and then put the rest away for college.

7. What makes your blog unique compared to other blogs?
I am a fashion & lifestyle blogger, emphasis on lifestyle. I like to not only incorporate fashion onto my blog, but lifestyle aspects as well. Whether it be about reading, running, or cooking I like how versatile I can make my blog.

8. What is your favorite time of the year?
Football season!! I love college football, and I'm counting down the days till the season starts up again!

9. What's your favorite summer read?
I love to read Sarah Dessen books in the summer, she writes contemporary teen books that always get me in the mood for summer!!

10. What's one major thing on your wish list right now?
Okay this is totally random, but I've been wanting an Eno hammock. I may ask for one for my birthday. They are light and compact hammocks that you can bring just about anywhere. I think it would be so fun to go to a park and set it up and just read or blog for an afternoon!

11. Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts, and what is your usual order?
As an avid runner I try to stick to just hydrating with water. But every once in a while I will treat myself to a  Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher from Starbucks. (That was a mouthful!)

Here's who I'm nominating:

Sydney of Anchors and Pearls
Katelyn of A Sprinkle of Kate
Alyssa of Lots of Lys
Stephanie of Petite Pastels
Caitlin of Your Typical Prep

My Questions:
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
2. What made you choose your blog name?
3. What's your best advice for a newbie blogger?
4. What 3 words would you choose to describe your style?
5. Where are some of your favorite places to shop - online or in-store?
6. What is your favorite outfit that you've posted so far?
7. Who are your fashion icons?
8. Besides blogging, what else do you do in your free time?
9. What 3 things can you never leave the house with?
10. Where would your ideal vacation spot be?
11. What are your summer plans?

Once again thanks so much to Angela for nominating me, and I can't wait to see everyone's responses!!
