The Liebster Award, Take 2

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award for a second time by Kim of Simply Being Kim (thanks, Kim!). Since I've already answered Courtney's questions and chosen my own nominees, I'm just going to answer Kim's questions in this post :)

1. Why did you start blogging? Feel free to link a post if you have already answered this question. 
I technically started blogging back in 2014 (read: I didn't really do anything with this blog until June). I started a blog as a senior in high school after following other blogs for about a year. I loved all the content that bloggers were sharing and all the creativity that went into the process (shoutout to Carly of The College Prepster for being my biggest blogging inspiration and my motivation for creating one of my own). This, combined with my love for writing, led to the thought: "Hey, I could do that!" So I did. 

2. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia

3. Name the most influential person in your life.
I'm not sure I have one, to be honest. I can't think of anyone who influences me in a notable way; there are people whom I admire and whose opinions I value, but no one whom I consider a big influencer on my life.

4. If you could go on a date with any celebrity, what would your dream date look like?
Something chill. Maybe Shake Shack and a concert. 

5. Do you have any article of clothing or jewelry piece that is sentimental to you?
My Yiayia passed away in December, and she gave me her diamond studs. I wore only these earrings for weeks after she passed; when I wear them, I feel like she's with me because she wore them, too. 

6. Name one thing that you are looking forward to this year.
CHRISTMAS. December is my favorite month because I love anything and everything Christmas. In the nearer future, I'm looking forward to spending fall break at Disney with one of my best friends. 

7. What is your dream job?
Tour managing a band, stage managing festivals, or managing a venue. In short, music management. 

8. What is your favorite movie?
Catch Me If You Can, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks

9. What is your favorite board game?
I think I'm gonna go with Monopoly. We've always played Sorry and Yahtzee (is that considered a board game because there's no board?) in my family, too. 

10. If you could go back in time, what is one piece of advice you would give to yourself?
"God has a plan, so stop worrying about it."

If you missed it, Liebster Award No. 1 is here


  1. Love this post! I started a blog in 2012 and deleted it because I was afraid of what other people thought about me, but this summer I restarted it and I am trying to get back into it. Carly was a huge inspiration to me as well, then and now!


    1. That's awesome, Bailey! Since I started regularly blogging in June, I've discovered such a great blogging community. I hope you stick with it! :)

  2. Thank you so much for answering my questions, Alexa! It was great getting to read about why you started your blog and the significance of the diamond earrings you wear. And I've heard so many people rave about Cherry Garcia. I'll have to pick it up next time I'm at the store!

    -Kim :)

    1. Thanks again for the nomination and for reading, Kim :) Definitely let me know if you try Cherry Garcia and what you think of it haha
