Liebster Award Nominee!

Hey all and happy Friday! My birthday was on Monday and I got an extra surprise when I found out I had been nominated for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Megan from the fabulous blog Linens and Leggings! She is one of my favorite bloggers, we haven't met in real life yet but I'm pretty sure we would be besties. Check her blog out, she's a southern girl who loves Auburn, has a passion for fashion and lots of overall joy (no wonder we like each other's blogs so much!).  
I've only been blogging since this past April and it's something that I've grown to love. Not only do I love connecting with others who follow the blog but the blogging community as a whole. I have met so many new people as a result of starting this blog and I can't wait to see it continue to grow and what's in store for the future! 

Back to the Liebster nomination, I am seriously so excited to be nominated and can't thank Stephanie enough for nominating me! The Liebster is an award for new bloggers that is designed to support and promote new blogs. Shout out again to Linen and Leggings for the sweet nomination! Now the rules.

                                                                        The Rules

 1. Post your award to your blog.
2. Answer the questions that you were given from the person who nominated you. 

3. Nominate a few new bloggers you've discovered.

4. Create 10 new questions for the nominees.

5. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.

Answering Stephanie's Questions 

1. What inspired you to start your blog? I have wanted to start a blog for a while, starting in high school people used to tell me how much they liked my style and clothing. Fashion can be fun and a great outlet for creativity. So I knew I wanted to eventually start a fashion blog. Cut to college when I started running and knew that if I could run a half-marathon or marathon, anyone could. So I decided to add fitness to the blog mix then eventually added my love of travel, DIY home projects, local activities and food to make Adventures Right Outside the Yellow Door.
2. Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts? I love creating new fashion looks, especially looks on a budget. I love fashion but I'm also in my 20's so I can't afford designer everything. Mixing higher end pieces you can keep forever (and I try to only buy them on sale) with trendier, cheaper pieces (but still look chic) is how I tend to style. Travel is another passion and while I wish I could spend weeks at a time on vacation, with work, school and life, that just isn't realistic. Mini-weekend trips are my thing and I love showing readers how to make the most of 2-3 days at a destination! I also love recapping races so I can hopefully give someone a reason to get out there and run. My posts genuinely come from things that I like and enjoy doing so I hope the reader does too!
3. What has been your favorite post to write so far? This is a hard one. I actually have 3. My DIY post on creating your living room on a budget since I am a new homeowner and proud of how I was able to create a home that was unique to me on a budget (no interior decorator!). Two of my travel posts also make this list, one with a review and recap of Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2015 and my 24 hour trip to Chicago recap. Lots of fun times spent with friends and adventures!
4. Wine- Red or White? White!
5. Diet Coke or Starbucks? I'm not really obsessed with diet coke or coffee but I do love a berry refresher or a Frappuccino so I guess Starbucks!
6. Sneakers or Heels? I do like my converse but besides those I actually find sneakers uncomfortable! I will have to go with heels.
7. What are your top 3 bucket list items? 1. Visit all 50 states. 2. Publish a novel. 3. Direct a short film. There are lots more!
8. What is your favorite movie and why? Ever since I was little I have always been obsessed with the movie Grease. I like the characters, the music, the singing and choreography, all of it! I love that it has a happy ending and it's that one move that whenever it's on, I have to watch it!
9. What would be your last meal? I like really simple things but I also have a huge sweet tooth. Probably a grilled cheese and fries then the dessert tray would come out with cupcakes, donuts and every sweet imaginable!
10. Who is someone that inspires you? I know it's cliché but my parents are both amazing. I'm really fortunate to have such good ones. They have always  told me to set my goals high and go after them. If we are talking about famous individuals, I love the grace and style of Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn, the glamour of Marilyn Monroe, the trailblazers of the past like Mary Shelley and those of today like Amy Poehler, Jennifer Lawrence and Mindy Kailing. Oh and if I had to pick an inspiration closet? Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon!
Ok there are my answers! I hope my responses weren't too boring and you enjoyed the questions as much as I did.  Now onto to the exciting part, my nominations!
