The Liebster Award

Woo hoo! I was nominated for a Liebster Award yesterday by Stephanie at The Dreams Weaver! So excited! :) 
For those of you who do not know what the Liebster Award is, it was started by bloggers to nominate new bloggers in order for them to gain recognition and a boost to keep them going. 

The Rules: 
  • You must link back to the person who nominated you
  • You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you
  • You must 11 pick nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you

1. Why did you start your blog, and what does the title mean to you?
I started my blog because I wanted to get a little out of my comfort zone. I'm always so scared of being judged. Here is where I can just say what I want and do what I want and I don't have to even worry about it.
My title is just me. Sweet, Southern, and what I love...SPARKLE!

2. What is your dream job if you can do anything?

If I could do anything, I would probably want to do something like own a huge piece of land that I could have tons of animals that have been rescued. There are just so many helpless animals out there! Or I would want to run my jewelry site full time!

3. Where would your ideal vacation be?

I am dying to go overseas! Somewhere like Italy or Greece.

4. What is your go to outfit that makes you feel great?

Since it's been cold outside I usually go with a pair of leggings with a shirt sweater and boots.

5. What is your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV. I love the housewives!
6. What is your favorite season and why?
I like the winter here in Texas. I have good hair days with the cold and I love to wear all my boots!
7. What is your favorite TV show/movie?
I love love The Walking Dead and Nashville.
8. Do you like shopping? If so, what and where?
Do I like shopping?! I LOVE shopping! Anywhere and anything! Mostly home decor right now. Still getting the new house all put together.
9. What is your favorite meal to make?
I can't just pick one. I really really love to cook. 
Cupcakes are usually pretty fun though because of the decorating you get to do after!
10. Who do you look up to?
There is a few people but I really look up to my grandmother. 
She is just a great person. She has done so many great things in her time with helping others.
11. What advice can you give to new bloggers?
Don't be scared! I was so scared when I started and there was no reason for it. It's your space and your place to let your thoughts fly!

  1. I work for an animal rescue but I still want to bring them all home!!! I've always wanted a huge piece of property to house horses and large animals that nobody wants anymore... Just so they can live the rest of their days knowing love!

    1. Ugh you hit the nail on the head. I would LOVE to have a larger place for horses. I live in Houston and they always have that show on Animal Cops Houston and they show so many of them that are just left in pastures to wilt away. It's horrible. Luckily, our SPCA is always so helpful. So neat that you work for an animal rescue! :)
