The Liebster Award

What a nice surprise; Pretty.Random.Things. received another blog award! This time we were awarded the Liebster Award by Michelle of Pretty in the East. Thank you so much, Michelle!

What is the Liebster Award, you ask? It is an award given to smaller blogs to expose them to a bigger audience of readers. A pretty cool idea, I think!

To formally accept this award, I have to do the following:

1. Link back and recognize the blogger who nominated you
2. Answer ten questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you
3. Nominate ten other bloggers for the award.
4. Create ten questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Notify your nominees.

Here are the questions, composed by Michelle, for me to answer:

1. How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I've been blogging since June 2011, so that means I'm at the 2 years and 4 months mark as of today. I started blogging because I was bored and wanted my own little online space where I can share the things that I love, make lists, post pictures and interact with interesting people from around the world.
2. What type of post(s) do you enjoy reading and writing the most?
I enjoy reading fashion and beauty posts (I mostly like looking at pictures) and humorous diary-like lifestyle posts. My favorite posts to write are lists... about everything.
3. What are three of your favorite songs, either current or classic?
There's no way I can answer this. I have a very very eclectic taste in music and if I had to make this choice, we might be here for days and days.
4. What are you most inspired by?
I'm mostly inspired by images, as I'm a very visual person. I'm also inspired by strong, independent, successful women.
5. If you had $500 to spend on one makeup brand, which would you choose and why?
I think I'll go with MAC. I like the quality of their products and adore their lipsticks and makeup brushes.
6. How would you describe your style?
Classic, simple, comfortable, chic, feminine, preppy. 
7. Where would you go on your dream vacation?
I've always wanted to go to French Polynesia.
8. Where do you see yourself ten years from now?
In ten years I'll be 38. AHHH! I see myself living the simple life with my man, in a beautiful house with a big yard and at least two dogs. Maybe a kid or two, a successful business and, of course, being healthy and happy.
9. What are your top three ‘holy grail’ products you can’t live without (makeup, skincare, bath, body, etc.)?
Products that I keep repurchasing, and that I'll probably use for the rest of my life, are Nivea's Q10 Plus body lotion, Lancôme Hypnôse mascara and Kérastase Masquintense hair treatment.
10. What are you looking forward to the most this fall and/or winter?
I'm really looking forward to wearing all my cozy sweaters, drinking lots of tea and cuddling with my man on those cold days.

Here are the 10 bloggers I nominate:
2. Fariha of Fariha is Here
3. Carrie of Better with Cheddar
4. Nelleke of Darling Nel
5. Jess of 26 & Not Counting
6. Meg of I go by Meg
7. Shannon of Awash with Wonder
8. Jessica of Blog with Benefits
9. Ashley of All that Glitters

Here are my questions for the bloggers that I have nominated:
1. What is your ultimate travel destination?
2. What is your favorite online shopping site?
3. How many times a day do you check social media?
4. Link your most popular blog post EVER! (The post that got the most views.)
