Tag: Liebster Award

By 8:00 AM ,

I was just tagged recently by Tamara, a.k.a. Baydian Girl (thanks so much!) for this Liebster award tag. I've done a couple of these in the past, but I really enjoy answering questions like these so I decided to do it again!

I won't be tagging anyone for this, so if you want to answer these questions yourself, tweet me and let me know when you post it! 

---   ---   ---

1. Where are you from?

- I was born and raised in good ole Alabama in the U.S. 

2. What inspired the name of your blog?

- I wanted to create a title that embodied what I felt described me perfectly, so I thought of a few things that I feel define me fashion/beauty-wise. Hence, Leather & Lipstick was created. I love leather and I love lipstick. so there you have it.

3. What is your favorite quote?

- Anyone who knows me well knows how difficult this question is for me. I guess I'm what you could call a quote hoarder? I'm obsessed with quotes and have a list of them to pull out when I need inspiration. My favorite of the moment is this:

"I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." A quote from the poem Invictus. It resonates with me tremendously. I adore that poem.

4. Describe your dream vacation.

- This is also tough because I want to vacation in a hundred different areas! At this moment, I'm dying for a beach trip. My dream vacation right now would be staying at an exotic, remote location by the ocean. Spending the day sipping on mojitos, reading, and swimming.

5. Introvert or extrovert?

- I'm more of an ambivert technically, but if I had to choose, I'm an introvert 100%.

6. What would you do if you knew you would not fail and money was not an issue?

- I'd move to New York and pursue a career as a stylist, a P.R. executive, or a music reviewer. Or a makeup artist. And after conquering NYC, I'd move out of the country and explore other places. I'm very ambitious, clearly.

7. Who are your 3 favorite bloggers?

Sammy of Little Fickle, Anastasia Amour, and Ayesha of Thoughts of Glitter. What I love about them is their writing styles and content. They're great at what they do!

8. What is your favorite item in your wardrobe?

- Oh, god. I actually need a new pair, but I'd say my black Rockstar skinny jeans from Old Navy. I have had three pairs of them, and they've all been worn out! They fit like a glove and I can't imagine ever NOT wearing them all the time.

9. Coffee, tea or both?

- I really love both! 

10. What is your favorite fashion magazine? Why?

- Honestly, I really love InStyle magazine. They cover a broad range of fashion-related topics and it's always chock full of stuff to read.

11. Who has impacted you the most in your life?

- Well, this is a big question. I guess I'd say my mom, overall. She's inspired me and motivated me tremendously over the years, and it's safe to say that she's my #1 fan (aside from my grandmother, who believes I can do no wrong).
