Thank you to the beautiful Nicole from Meet Me In Midtown for nominating me for this award. It looks like this is a new award going around, and I'm grateful to be thought of as deserving of it. Nicole is probably my favorite lifestyle blogger. She is amazing at photographing her trips and she's going to study in Germany! She's quite the brave traveler and I really admire that about her.

Now that the rules have been expressed, let's answer the questions!

What do you think it means to be classy?
For me, being classy means dressing appropriately and rising above difficult situations. Also, being proper and well-spoken is a definition of classy to me.

Who are some of your role models?
One of my role models is Zoe from Zoella. She's stayed true to herself throughout the years and she's grown into such a lovely woman. She lives quite a public life, but she's still able to keep some things private and stay classy. She doesn't rant on social media about other people and she's always so supportive of her viewers and fellow bloggers/youtubers.

Who are some of your style icons?
Again, Zoe. I just love how feminine her style is. Also, Blake Lively and Nina Dobrev are my celebrity icons. Last but not least, Tanya from Tanya Burr because she's curvy and fit at the same time. She wears such flattering outfits and she inspires me to embrace my looks more.

Pearls or bows?
Depends on my mood. If I want to be girly, I'd wear bows, but I don't own any. If I want to be extra fancy, I'd do pearls. I have fake pearls bracelet, does that count?

Who/What inspires you?
Creativity inspires me as well as YouTubers like Tyler Oakley and all the British YouTubers really. They have come so far and have handled their rise to fame so gracefully.

What is your favorite color?
At this point, I don't even know. I like the classy creams, but I also like the bright pinks and purples. I guess it depends on the context. Cream and pewter for interior design with a pop of color. For clothes, I prefer bright, but I don't really own that many. For makeup, I prefer neutral browns.

I'm not even aware what is considered classic. So, I don't know that I can say I like if it I don't even know what it looks like.

What are some of your favorite quotes?
This one I made myself: "Sometimes, you have to make sacrifices and put yourself first." With my anxiety, I've learned I can't continue pleasing people all the time, or I'd lose my sanity.

The same with Nicole, I like the Eleanor Roosevelt quote of "Do what you feel in your heart is right, for you'll be criticized anyway." So true, and when I'm upset, I think of this quote and then tell myself, "F the haters, do what you think is right." Haha :)

Why is it important to have class?
I think it's important because it's the only way I would respect someone. If someone has a dirty mouth that curses FOR NO REASON at all, then I lose respect for them. I curse, too, but not excessively. The same goes with the way someone is dressed. If you dress with all your bits hanging out, how can you expect me to respect you when you don't seem to respect yourself?

Why/when did you start your blog?
I started my blog a few years ago, but not knowing what I really wanted to focus on, I fell in and out of it. I've restarted my blog a few months ago in May and I'm loving it so far. I've been constantly inspired and just overall happy that I'm doing what I love again. I started it thinking I could monetize, but it evolved more into making new connections and hopefully developing lifelong friends that I otherwise would not have made in real life.

Those are all the questions! I'm sorry if they're a bit rambly. I nominate the bloggers below:

Alicia from Lissy Beauty
Amy from Style Storms
Bunmi from Buma's Closet
Velvet Blush - I can't find her name anywhere!
Millie from Millsie

Thanks again, Nicole for nominating me!



  1. This post was really interesting to read, you had me laughing when you said 'If you dress with all your bits hanging out, how can you expect me to respect you' ; That is definately true in society today, I also don't see why people have to swear in every single sentence!

    Thank you for nominating me as a classy blogger, much appreciated! :) xx

    Velvet Blush

    1. Yeah I was thinking of a YouTuber when I thought of the word Classy. She was not the definition at all. I mean, she's really popular, but in my opinion, she has a dirty mouth. Lol I'm hating, but it is how it is. She can't please everyone.

  2. I love your quote! It's so true sometimes you just have to put yourself first.
