Liebster Award

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

A few weeks ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by a fellow blogger, Areta Chen of Areta's Style Secrets.  I encourage you guys to check out her blog, she has an amazing style, and I love to follow her chic outfit posts.  How this award works is that a blogger nominates 10 other bloggers and gives them 10 questions to answer.  I really liked Areta's questions, and I thought, what a perfect opportunity for you guys to get to know me a little bit better!  So, here we go.

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I have been into fashion ever since I was a little girl.  My dream job was to be a fashion designer when I grew up, so I was always thinking about and sketching designs in my notebooks.  As life happened,  I chose not to pursue my dreams but to go in a completely different direction called medicine.  Even though I loved science and learning about the human body, my heart yearned for creativity.  So, last semester of my senior year in college, I started Urban Chic Blvd as a creative outlet.  I am not quite sure where I am going with my blog yet, but I absolutely love sharing my fashion journey with you guys.

2. Where do you find your inspiration?
I'd say Instagram is a major inspiration hub for me.  I love to follow other bloggers and get new ideas from them everyday. 

3. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Definitely flying, because I love to travel, and I think being able to fly would make that happen more often. 

4. What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote changes all the time depending on what I'm going through in life, but my current favorite one is "Eventually all the dots will connect."

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
There is a lot of places I wish to visit, but at the very top of my list are the Mediterranean countries.  I have a special type of love for that area of the world.  There is something about Mediterranean culture that I find so captivating, not to mention the delicious cuisine.

6. What has been your favorite experience since blogging?
My favorite experience since blogging has been sharing my passions with others and getting to know like-minded people from all over the world.

7. What is your biggest insecurity?
Usually, I am insecure about my future. I am a type of person that likes to be in control of things, consequently not knowing what my future holds for me makes me feel uncomfortable.

8. Which movie is your guilty pleasure?
I love chick flicks. Some of my favorites are The Other Woman, When in Rome, The Devil Wears Prada, and Legally Blond.

9. Describe your everyday uniform.
Nowadays, I've been loving going for a simple look, as I don't like to spend a lot of time in my closet.  So, a basic sweater or a shirt and jeans paired with ankle boots is my everyday uniform at the moment. Of course, I switch up the jeans for a skirt occasionally.

10. Who do you consider your fashion icon?
I actually have more than one fashion icons, among them being Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba, Keira Knightley, Blake Lively, and Emma Watson.  I love their clean and simple yet sophisticated and chic style. Some of my blogger fashion icons are Chriselle Lim of The Chriselle Factor, Nicole Warren of Gary Pepper Girl, and Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam.

Hope you guys enjoyed reading some of these facts about me!
