Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 6.09.56 PM

so this is basically the most exciting thing to happen to me since getting a mini keurig and finding out that i like coffee (two both VERY exciting things) i was nominated by Jordan for the Liebster Blog Award. If you aren’t familiar with the award, it’s basically an award that is meant to support, encourage, and promote new and upcoming bloggers. (how NEATO is that!?) in other words it’s kind of like a virtual pat on the back for all the work put into running a blog.

when nominated for the award i was sent a link to Jordan’s blog in which she listed some questions to be answered, so here you are!!!

What is your current favorite fashion trend?

rainboots. i’m not sure if that’s actually considered a trend but they’re currently ruling my wardrobe choices at the moment. along with anything pink, navy, or polka dotted.

If you had to eat one type of food for the rest of your life what would it be?

for sure mexican food. hit me up with some tamales and queso por favor.

What is your favorite book?

I’m a Harry Potter so not including all 7 books in this answer would be a disgrace. also. hardcore #TeamRavenclaw

Cats or Dogs?

both. golden retrievers are the sweetest pups on the planet. and my little kitten named mittens (too cute right?) is my all time cuddly buddy.

If you could live in a movie, what movie and why?

May i say in my mind i attend Hogwarts so for sure Harry Potter.

What is your favorite hairstyle?
well after chopping the locks yet again, (#TeamShortHair) bedhead tends to be my best bet most of the time. *okay. ****TAMED bedhead. i have pretty naturally wavy hair so picture a baby lion cub in the morning and that would be my hair. so usually running a brush through it is my go-to. along with the always saving lululemon headbands. 

Why did you start your blog?
i started my blog because i loved reading other people’s and loved how they were able to squeeze all the great and good in their life into a computer screen and share it with everyone and i wanted to do the same. i wanted (and still want) to make people smile with words, laugh at my awful jokes, and take a sneak peak into my life all while loving what i do.

what is the motivation behind your blog?
my motivation is seeing the smiles and talking to people about my blog or about their day or little happy things in their life. I LOVE seeing people have that happy spark in them and telling people about mine or having people tell me this blog is theirs is the best feeling in the world, so keep doing you everyone who reads this, you rock!

what social media outlets are you on and what are your usernames?

instagram: @xoxoallisonnicole

What is your favorite nail polish color?
so i’ve weirdly been obsessed with dark nail polish despite my ever pink personality and “after school boy blazer” by Essie is the best navy out there. often referred to among my dance team as “midnight navy”

What is the story behind your blog’s name?
well although i’m better known as “Ally” to my friends and most of my family, my full name is Allison and my middle name is Nicole so there is that part. as for the “xoxo” i like to live life pretending I’m Blair Waldorf/vicariously living through Gossip Girl, so it only seemed appropriate. 

Thanks so much to Jordan for the nomination! it means the world girl!
