Thank you so much to Tailored and True for the ‘Liebster Award’ nomination! I am very excited and also humbled to be getting support from such an awesome blogger. I love the fact that you step outside your comfort zone so that people can see the ‘tailored and true’ Caitlin. Which, by the way you are an incredibly stylish woman!
I get a lot of funny looks when I tell people I have a blog as well but that is the thing I like about it the most. Surprising people with the real me and feeling comfortable in my own skin. Blogging can be extremely intimidating if you don’t know what you stand for and if you are afraid of other peoples judgement. Thankfully, through the first months of writing, I realized it isn’t about pleasing other people. It is about being yourself and if people like you, awesome, but if they don’t agree, that is fine too. Just BE YOU. I finally feel like I get to express myself through writing and the fact that you nominated me proves it is all worth it. So THANK YOU. Now! Onto all the answers to the questions you so kindly asked me…
1. Why did you start blogging?
Well, to be honest with you guys, I started blogging because I am one of those people who never really stick to one thing and I needed to prove to myself that I could really do it. I get so excited about projects and ideas that I become somewhat scatter brained. Then, something pretty awesome happened… I realized that I love it. I realized that I was giving 110% not because I had to, but because I wanted to. ( I also started for the obvious reasons..as in my love for fashion, food, music and well basically anything..if it exists I would like to write about it..except for crocs..you will never see those on my blog…like…ever.)
2. What are your goals for your blog?
My goals are as follows. Always stay true to being myself. I don’t want to ever feel like I am writing about something I don’t feel excited about or at least interested in. Also, another goal would be to always keep an amazing relationship with my readers. I love hearing comments and feedback. I already know the blogging community is amazing and my most important goal is to keep meeting and connecting with all of you!
3. What is your dream job?
You know how they say, “you will have at least seven careers in your lifetime”? Well I am totally that person. I want to travel the world and do a whole bunch of amazing things (the list of those things could literally be written into a novel) before my time here is up. So, I guess you could say my dream job is anything but a 9:00 to 5:00.
4. What’s your go-to outfit when traveling ?
Something comfortable with a little funk. Let’s say, Converse, pair of cute jeans, and a nice graphic tee. A scarf is also helpful to double as a blanket if you ever need one on the plane because let’s be honest..you dunnooo where those things have been. Lastly, just because you are getting on an airplane doesn’t always mean you have to wear uggs and leggings.
5. What is one of your favorite beauty tricks?
The best beauty trick is drinking water…water..and yes more water. You will look like a million bucks. A very hydrated million bucks. You’re welcome.
6. Who is your style icon?
Kate Hudson! She is the epitome of class, edge and all around style icon. I don’t think I have seen her wear anything I don’t like. She is just to cool.
7. Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
That would be Tom Ford. Why? ..because he is bloody brilliant of course.
8. Who is your celebrity doppelgänger?
Haha! I have no idea on this one! Lucy Hale perhaps?
9. What’s your favorite fun fact to share with new people?
My favorite fun fact to share with new people is that all the people who are closest to me call me “B”.
10. If money were no object, what would you do?
I would celebrate obviously!..and I would definitely travel more.
Thank you again to Tailored and true for the nomination.
