Hey ladies (and gents!) Today’s post is all about the Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 1000 followers on Twitter and if you’re nominated you have to answer the questions listed below which would have been made up by the person who tagged you, then make up 11 questions of your own and tag 11 bloggers to answer the questions next.
I was nominated by Hannah from hannahscloud9. I’m so grateful for such a nice award and it was a nice surprise to wake up to! So thank you Hannah, I really appreciate it! <3
Why did you decide to start blogging?
I started raechic a little over a year ago after a long time of having the idea to start a blog. I’m not really sure what actually made me want to, I think it’s because I wanted a place to express myself and share my views without being judged. I also really wanted to share my advice, my favorite products, college experiences and (maybe in the future) design posts, since I am in school to be a graphic designer. I’ve always been fascinated with vloggers and other YouTubers and since I wasn’t interested in making videos then, I decided to take a different path and start my blog. (I’m really glad I did because I enjoy it so much and it has boosted my confidence!)
What would your perfect 3 course meal consist of?
I love food and I love all types of food so this is hard…I think the perfect appetizer would have to be a fresh caesar salad with lots of croutons. For the main dish, I would definitely have to pick eggplant parmesan over spaghetti (I’m drooling just thinking about it…) Dessert is one of my favorite things, I just can’t pass up sweets, so the perfect dessert would have to be a hot fudge brownie sundae.
What one beauty product can you not live without?
Mascara. I can’t leave the house without mascara on. I feel like I look like I’m 12 years old without it and people usually ask me if I’m tired without it. It’s a must have!
Who is your favourite blogger and why?
Tashina, from Logical Harmony is my favorite blogger. I love her blog because she specializes not only in cruelty free & vegan beauty but also how to live a vegan lifestyle. She has an amazing list of cruelty free/vegan brands and also a list of brands to avoid. She really works hard at investigating companies and is a reliable source!
What is your proudest/happiest memory?
Hm…wow. I would say graduating highschool is one of my proudest moments. In middle school, I struggled with being bullied which caused my grades to drop drastically and I barely attended school. I almost failed the 5th grade and 6th grade too, but then something in me changed and I had a drive to do well in order to get into a tech highschool. I finished middle school with honor roll and I got honor roll throughout high school. I graduated with high honor cords and with 4 awards/scholarships for my achievements! I’m very proud that I was able to turn my act around and now I’m finishing up my second year in college (something probably no one thought I would manage) and I’m going to school full time and working part time. I’ve made Dean’s list every semester!
Do you have any phobias?
I mean, I’m kind of afraid of everything but there’s nothing that I’m deathly afraid of. I can deal with insects as long as they aren’t too close to me.
Which 3 words best describe your personality?
Sassy, spunky and unpredictable.
What TV shows do you watch?
I haven’t really been watching TV that often lately. But Tyler and I just finished up Prison Break, which is definitely one of my favorite shows now. I also really like Criminal Minds, American Horror Story and Snapped.
What is your top health/beauty tip?
I have two top tips…get enough rest and drink plenty of water. Don’t question it, just do it!
Tell us a secret about yourself.
I used to have panic attacks during thunderstorms, like full on balling my eyes out, hyperventilating, throwing up panic attacks. I’m not sure what triggered these, but thankfully I can deal with thunderstorms now (I do get a little anxious during them, but nothing like I used to).
Nights in or nights out?
Definitely nights in! I’m usually a stay in kind of gal anyways, I find I have more fun that way, somewhere where I’m comfortable. My perfect night in would be cuddling with Tyler while watching a movie 🙂
