The Liebster Award


I am so honored and humbled to be nominated for the Liebster Award by Kristen, writer at The Mothershop!
The Liebster Award was developed in 2011 to recognize bloggers by other bloggers. An award that praises the hard work and dedication that bloggers do.  It may seem easy to the reader, the job a blogger does, but other bloggers know the countless hours it takes to bring together a blog idea and get all the thoughts in the right order. To those blogs we bloggers say Thank you and we see your hard work.

The Rules for the Liebster
1. Thank the blog that nominated you and link back to them. Thanks again Kristen!
2. Nominate 4 to 11 other bloggers for the Liebster Award.
3. Answer 11 questions from the blog that nominated you.
4. Tell the readers 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer for their Liebster post.

-Kristen's Questions-

1. How do you balance blogging with being a mother?

- I'm still trying to balance it all, but I have found it easiest when I spend all day with them and work on the blog at night. When they are asleep it is easier to hear my thoughts, however some nights are harder than others to work. Sleep tends to look more appealing than the keyboard.

2. How did you come up with the name for your blog? 

- I thought for a long time about what to name the blog and my husband told me it should be something I love. So I combined all my "loves" into the name. I love writing my thoughts and feelings. I love being a mother. I love fashion and beauty. So Writing Mother Fashionista was created.

3. Besides blogging, what is your favorite hobby?

-Living up to the blog name, any chance I get I like to take "mom time" and go for long walks down the makeup aisles and clothing aisles! But to be honest, it's pretty rare to have that time, so I mainly just try to come up with ideas on teaching the boys something new. I guess educational activities have somehow become my hobby.

4. What is your favorite go-to fashion accessory and why?

-I tend to always wear a sweater, jacket or some sort of cover. I get cold easy so I never leave the house without it. That and a hair tie.

5. What is your go-to Starbucks order?

-My all time favorite drink is the Chestnut Praline Latte, from the holiday menu. It is happiness in a cup!! But since the holiday menu doesn't last, I order a Vanilla Latte on any other day.

6. What beauty products can you not live without?

-This is probably the hardest question to answer! I love all my makeup products, but if I was stranded somewhere and needed a beauty product, I would hope I could reach into my purse and at least have mascara. I feel it helps me look awake.

7. What is your favorite TV show to binge watch?

-Aaaah, this is another tough one to answer because I have 2! Wednesday nights I am ridiculously loyal to Law and Order SVU and Chicago PD. I love love love these shows. If I had to pick one though, it would have to be Law and Order SVU. I have been watching this show since the very first season in 1999! No joke I absolutely cannot get enough. I have probably seen every episode at least twice. When I was pregnant with Josiah I told Luis that if I had a girl we would name her Olivia, after Olivia Benson on the show. Die hard fan here people!!

8. Describe your ideal shopping experience- in store or online.

- I love walking into a store and being greeted. However I do not like to be hovered. I love Sephora. I am like a kid in a candy store, but I hate the associates coming every 3 minutes to ask if I am ok! Can you just let me think and swatch my life away please!? Maybe it's just me.

9. What is your favorite social media platform?

- Am I allowed to say my blog? I love getting my thoughts out. I find it therapeutic to type my head away. I can load as many pictures as I want in a post and not feel limited to crowding someone's feed.

10. What is the best resource you have found to help build your blog?

- I think the best resource is really blog groups. I am a member of a few of these awesome groups on facebook and I have found some awesome blog buddies to help guide me in the blogging world.

-11 Facts about me-

1. I am very germaphobic and have a bit of ocd.
2. I am a book hoarder.
3. I love cheesecake!!
4. I met my husband when I was 17.
5. Music is an escape to me.
6. I love road trips.
7. I'm a Christian.
8. I'm allergic to cats.
9. I am my toughest critic.
10. I never wanted kids, but now I cannot be happier I had them.
11. I crave an In N Out burger, protein style, no cheese with a side of animal fries, no cheese, almost every night.
