Leibster Award

7:11:00 AM

Good Morning! I was nominated by the lovely Learning to Love Leah for the Leibster Award. This is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers. If you are nominated you are given a set of unique questions to answer on your blog. Once you have written your post and answered your questions you can nominate 5-10 bloggers of your own (they have to have less than 1,000 followers on Instagram). Also, be sure to tag them in the photo you take to promote your new blog post.

  1. How did you choose the name for your blog?
It actually took me a while to come up with the name for my blog, but I finally landed on Beautifully Elegant because I wanted something that described the kind of content I was going to be putting out. Plus, Beautifully Elegant just spoke to me and my husband agreed it would be a great fit. 

  1. Who is your biggest encourager?
I have to say that my husband is my biggest encourager...very cheesy! But, honestly he is always pushing me to go bigger and try new things. He supports this crazy blog thing and thinks I should follow my dreams ! 

  1. What is the best quality about yourself?
I think my best quality is that I am a loyal friend. I will always be there to listen or to chat. I can be rather to myself sometimes, but I really do enjoy talking and sharing my story with others. Plus, I think I am a great listener. 

  1. What quote inspires you the most?
My favorite quote or bible verse that really inspires me is Psalm 40:1-5. It says " I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him. Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deed, they would be too many to declare." The reason that this particular verse means so much to me is because it was used in our wedding and helped my husband and I through some tough times before our marriage. 

  1. What has been your best vacation?
My favorite vacation was when my husband and I traveled to Hilton Head, South Carolina. We went on our honeymoon here and it is my favorite place I have ever visited. When we visit it feels like home. There is just something magical about this little island town that always has us planning our trip back as soon as we leave. 

  1. What is your favorite snack?
My favorite snack right now would have to be apples with peanut butter. I have been obsessed with this snack for about a month now. I go through phases of really loving something and then I will switch it up when I get tired of it. 

  1. Do you plan on taking another direction with your blog in the future?
Right now I am very happy with my blog and the way things are going. But, who knows what the future holds. It could morph into something totally different. I am on board for what ever God has planned for me and this little blog. 

  1. What is your favorite makeup/beauty product?
My favorite beauty product would have to be the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation. I recently wrote a more in depth blog post here. Check it out if you are interested in my full review. 

  1. Who are some other bloggers that you love?
I have several other bloggers that I have been loving. A couple are The Teacher DivaChronicles of Frivolity and A Southern Drawl. I read these blogs every morning with eating my breakfast. If you haven't heard of them, I would definitely go check out their blogs. They have some great content.  

  1. What is something you can’t live without?
I can't live without chap stick. I have to have it everyday. I have Burt's Bees Lip Balm in every purse, cubby at work and car console. I can't leave home without it. 

  1. What is a goal you have set for yourself this year?
My goal is to just continue blogging. I enjoy sharing my life and experiences with others. It brings me so much joy to be able to write my style posts, beauty reviews and share my husbands amazing recipes. I just want to continue on this path.
