Accepting the Liebster Award

In today's post I'm accepting my Liebster Award from Cassie at My Pop of Color! Thank you so much for noticing my blog. Check out Cassie's blog, she's only been blogging for two weeks and she does an amazing job. 

The Liebster Award is given to "newbie" bloggers by fellow bloggers and giving them more recognition and exposure for other bloggers to see their content. 

With the award comes some questions!

1. Why did you start your blog?
I’ve always wanted to be a fashion blogger or a YouTuber for as long as I could remember, but was always afraid to do it. Where I’m from and especially in high school, it was always frowned upon to do something different and stand out. I got my internship with CollegeFashionista in early April of my freshman year of college and it gave me the confidence to start it. 

2. What is your blog about?
Fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I like to have a little bit of everything so everyone can relate in some way.

3. How often do you post?
I always tell myself I’ll post every week day, but it ends up being 2-4 times a week. I don’t like to just “throw on” posts, I work really hard on each one.

4. What makes you keep blogging?
I love checking my email each day seeing new contacts, new offers and ideas presented to me, and new opportunities given to me. I love getting feedback and seeing my view count grow tremendously each month. I think it’s amazing to see how I’ve grown as a person and how I go out of my comfort zone by putting myself out there. I get nervous to post things to Facebook but I do it because I believe at least one person will read my post. I get scared going downtown on a busy street to get good shots of my outfit; and sometimes have people stare and wonder why I’m posing in heels and a dress at 11am on a Wednesday afternoon for example.  But, I've gotten so much more comfortable with what comes along with blogging! I really enjoy writing new posts and creating new content for The Gold Dime; it never feels like a hassle or “work” to me (although being a full-time blogger would be a dream!).

5. How long have you been blogging?
I just hit my four month mark this week :) Crazy to see how far my blog has come -- content, followers, and look wise!

6. What are your hobbies?
I’m such a girly girl when it comes to this question. Blogging (naturally), shopping, reading about the fashion industry, getting lost in bookstores, spending time in coffee shops, watching Matt Healy interviews on YouTube, working at J.Crew, crafting/DIYing, things of that nature.

7. What is your most favorite blog post that you’ve written?
Ah! This is a tough one. 
Fashion wise: Pattern Shift or Classic Boho Vibes
Beauty: Tour my vanity
Lifestyle: Vacation Vlog

8. To where would you love to travel?
Including but not limited to: London, Paris, Milan, Greece, Australia, Los Angeles, Seattle, Nantucket. Traveling is one of my favorite things in life.

9. Are you still in school? If so, what year?
I am! I will be starting my sophomore year of college at the end of August.

10. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
A long haired miniature dachshund, I’m so mushy for them! If it had to be exotic, a snow leopard or a lil’ baby elephant. 

11. And most importantly, what’s your favorite foods? 

Avocados, grilled pizza, any fruit, bagels, iced caramel machiattos from Starbs, ice cream/italian ice, Wegman’s blueberry scones. 

So now I get to nominate some blogs:
Caroline from Candid Caroline
