Liebster Award


Thank you Halla Jacobsen (of for recently nominating me for the Liebster Award. For those who don’t know, the Liebster Award is an “award made by bloggers for bloggers”. It leads to the discovery of new bloggers, along with allowing new connections to be made in the blogosphere. Though this blog has always been more of a fun and creative outlet for me, I love how the Liebster Award gives recognition for blogs such as mine.

Here are the rules:
  1. You have to thank the blog that nominated you.
  2. You have to answer the questions asked by the blog that nominated you.
  3. You have to nominate 11 other new bloggers.
  4. You have to set new questions for your nominees.


My questions that I’ll be answering, as chosen by Halla:

Why did you start blogging?

I started Short Sweet and Lovely in college as a creative outlet. A place where I could share my love for clothes, style, and so much more, because as a Geology major, my time was mainly focused on what I was doing in the classroom, the field, or the lab. I’ve always been a creative person with a love for all the arts, so this site has been a place where I can meld that love along with my passion for the great outdoors.

Are you a Type A or Type B person?

Definitely Type A. Even though I can at times get messy, I generally like things to be in a certain place. I’m also very big on planning and to do lists.

All time favorite brand?

This is a tough one as there’s so many brands out there but i’m going to go with my favorite brand of lipstick, Nars. I love the variety of shades, how long they always tend to last, and also how Red Lizard always makes me feel like I could conquer the world.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

A dog. Belly rubs, lazying around, and not having a whole lot of worries just sounds really nice.

What would be the hardest thing for you to give up on?

Love. Though romantic relationships may not always work out, there’s still so much to love about love. Plus, I don’t think I could ever doubt love with having such amazing friends and family members in my life.

Are you usually late, early, or right on time? 

I try to be early if I can but if not, I’m on time. One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone is late. If you say you’re going to be somewhere at a certain time, you better try your best to make that happen.

Are you happy with your life for the most part?

Absolutely! I have all of my limbs, am in good health, am surrounded by people who love me, have a great support network, and am constantly trying new things when I can. So how could I not be happy?!

Do you like rainy days or snowy winter days more?

Rainy days. There’s nothing quite like hearing the pitter patter of rain while reading a good book with a cup of tea nearby.

Name 3 things in nature you find most beautiful. 

Flowers, mountains, and trees. I love the variety of flowers this world holds, the ever changing nature of mountains, and the great heights that trees can reach.

Name your 5 favorite foods. 

Oooo, this is tough as I’m such a foodie. Let’s go with fajitas, anything lemon, cheesecake, pasta, and sushi. Oh oh and pizza! Darn, can we do 6 instead of 5??

Who is your favorite style icon?

I have many style icons, but the one whom I’ll always accredit style choices to will be Audrey Hepburn. I love how she always wore what worked for her body type, and even if she was just wearing pants and a shirt, she wore them with such understated elegance and confidence. That’s what I’ve learned when it comes to style, as long as you wear pieces that work for your body and do so with confidence, you’ll be a knockout.
