I Won the Liebster Award!

I Won the Liebster Award!

You are probably looking at this like “What the heck is a Liebster Award?” Yes, I was too but I’m super excited to have been nominated by Yvette over at Wayfaring Kiwi! This award is designed to help smaller bloggers (less than 1000 followers) get more exposure from their fellow bloggers on their respective sites (bloggers give these awards to other bloggers). It’s basically a great way to showcase some great bloggers and get new readers onto their sites! Be sure to check out Wayfaring Kiwi post about her Liebster Award here and the other sites that I’ll be nominating later in this post!

Yvette was ever so kind to nominate me and prepare a couple of questions that she wants me to answer for you all here, on le blog! So without further ado:

Tell us about your blog.

Unbothered Style is about all things lifestyle, beauty, and faith (very generic description, huh?). WELL, I created Unbothered Style to really express my creative side and to have an outlet to talk about anything I wanted, basically. I love to write, I love to produce content, I love to take pictures, and I just figured this would be a good outlet for me to do those things. Even though getting to this point was more difficult then I anticipated it to be, I’m still happy I did it!

What has been the most rewarding experience your blog has brought you?

Definitely some of the bloggers I’ve met and gotten a chance to connect with! I love picking peoples brains and learning from them so the knowledge I have gained already is just so valuable. Also, having people actually read what I have to say and taking something from it! I love the feeling of having and family member or friend come up to me and say they love my blog! Theres nothing like having your work get noticed and being appreciated for it. Very rewarding and humbling!

What is the best piece of advice you can give your readers?

Like… in general? Generally, I would say never compare yourself to ANYONE. This is so hard at times and I am a person that falls into this trap often BUT no two people are alike and won’t ever be completely alike. Be yourself and love yourself! Look up to yourself and be an inspiration to others. One thing I want to do is really make a name for myself and be unique!

What is your favorite travel destination and why?

Hmmm, my favorite travel destination… Well out of the places I have traveled I really loved the Dominican Republic! This vacation was my first time going out of the country and was just SO beautiful. There is nothing like clear blue oceans and white sand. I loved every minute of it and it’s definitely a vacation to beat in my books.

Where would you love to go to in the world?

I would love to visit Europe! That is definitely on my list to do before I turn 30 (read about my 30 before 30 list here)!

If someone were visiting your city or town, what would you suggest they do?

If someone were visiting Dallas I would recommend that they probably experience Downtown and all of the local dining options that we have. Maybe the Reunion Tower, too. Dallas isn’t all that to me since I’ve lived here forever. We have the normal attractions like most cities but the State Fair of Texas is a MUST if you are here between September and October!

What makes you deliriously happy?

This is such an interesting question! It would definitely have to be my family and friends! Being in their presence is like no other and instantly can put me in a better mood. If y’all are reading this, I love you!

What is your guilty pleasure?

ALL THINGS SWEET! I’m a sweet treats fanatic and it’s honestly an addiction at this point. I probably wouldn’t be overweight if I could contain myself, but I won’t go into that. My favorite treats are cookies, brownies, and chocolate cake… in that order. (:

What is a difficult obstacle you have had to overcome?

I think there are obstacles everyday in my life. No lie! This may sound silly, but coming up with my blog’s name was a very difficult and a stressful time in my first month of blogging. You can read all about this in my next post where I give a 1 month update of my blogging experience!

What are you most grateful for in life?

I’m most grateful for my life! I am so completely blessed to be able to live the way I do. God truly has blessed me with a great life and I’m sure to thank him for it everyday!

    Congrats on the liebster award, that is so exciting! I love the advice you gave about never comparing yourself to anyone, that is something I struggle with all the time and I am sure many others do as well. We have all grown so accustomed to comparing ourselves and the thing is there will always be someone out there that is at a different level than you are now and most of the time we only see the reward and not all of the hard work they put in to get there. Great post and congrats again!

      Ashley, I completely agree! A lot of the things we “envy” are one-sided and we don’t know the whole picture.
      Thanks for reading!
