Liebster Award

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Today, I have a super special for y'all! Faith from The Petite Pearl has nominated me for the Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is an award for up and coming bloggers (under 200 followers) to share with others and grow their blogs. 

The rules are:
- Thank and link the blogger(s) who have nominated you.
- Nominate about eleven bloggers (with less than two hundred followers) who you think deserve the award. (Don’t forget to leave links to their blogs!)
- Answer the eleven questions posted by the blogger(s) who nominated you, then write eleven new questions for your nominees to answer.
- Notify your nominees.

I nominate:

Here are the questions Faith came up with:

1. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is to have a "project" to work on that isn't related to school!
2. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Reading Minds! I am super noisy so that would be interesting
3. If you could meet any person– living or deceased– who would it be and why?
The deceased person I would want to meet is Mother Teresa because she seems so interesting and would love to hear what she has to say. The alive person I would want to meet is Kate Middleton because I have a slight obsession with her (she has a perfect closet and Prince George is so adorable).
4. If you could travel anyplace in the, where would you most like to visit? Or, where is your favorite place you have been?
I would love to visit London or Paris. Or Hawaii! My favorite place I have visited is Kiawah Island, South Carolina- it is so beautiful!
5. What or who inspires you the most?
My mom probably inspires me the most!
6. What is one thing you could not live without?
Wow, this is a hard one! My phone? Or maybe my agenda? Or my bed!
7. What is your dream job?
My dream job is to be an elementary school teacher.
8. What is the most bizarre thing you have ever done or tried?
This is interesting, I have no idea! I have gone water tubing in upstate New York (and may have gotten stuck a few times)
9. What is your favorite book or movie and why?
My favorite book is The Selection by Kiera Cass (it's basically The Bachelor with royalty). My favorite movie is probably Divergent because it is so good.
10. Who are your main style icons? How would you describe your personal style?
My main style icons are Kate Middleton, Dorothy (from Prep in Your Step), and Sarah Vickers. I would describe my personal style as southern preppy and classic.
11. What is something interesting about yourself that someone wouldn’t guess about you?
Haha, I have never left the continental U.S. (The farthest places away from my home in NC I have traveled to are Boston and southern Alabama).
The questions I have for all those I have nominated are:

1. Why did you start blogging?
2. If you could only shop at one store for the rest of your life what would it be?
3. How would you describe yourself in one word?
4. Favorite food?
5. What is one fun fact about yourself?
6. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
7. What is your dream city to live in?
8. Weirdest experience that has happened in your life?
9. What does your perfect day consist of?
10. East Coast or West Coast?
11. Pet Peeve?

Update- August 2015! Alyson from My Life as Alyson has also nominated me for the award! 

1.) What's the meaning behind your blog name?
My first name idea for my blog was Sassy and Classy but I realized that had been used a lot online and I wanted my blog name to be unique. I started playing around with all the words that could describe my blog and came up with Chic in Carolina. I have lived in North Carolina for the majority of my life so thats were Carolina comes from and to have alliteration in there, I added chic, which I hope applies to my style!

2.) How long have you been blogging?
For about 5 months now, I started in March 2015!

3.) Name one hobby you have that would be considered odd to everyone else, but you honestly love.
Um, I don't know! Blogging maybe (even though I don't think its that odd)?

4.) Where do you see yourself in three years?
In three years, I see myself in college and hopefully still blogging!

5.) If you could switch lives with someone for 24 hours who would you be and why?
I have no idea! Maybe Kate Middleton ... or Sarah Vickers .... or Blair Waldorf (I know she's not real!)

6.) What are some of your tips for people who want to start blogging but aren't too sure about it?
GO FOR IT! I honestly first started thinking of starting a blog almost a year before starting it! I wish I "took the plunge" sooner! Also, the thing I love about blogging is you make up your own rules on how you want to have your blog be like!

7.) What are your 3 favorite posts you've written?
This is so hard for me to pick since I really love all of the posts I write! I try to create content that I would want to see as a reader! My favorites are probably:

8.) What is your favorite post that someone else has written?
Gosh this is such a hard question for me to answer! I'm just going to say a few of my favorite bloggers: Prep in Your Step, Sweet Southern Prep, The College Prepster, Prep Avenue, Gimme Glamour, Citrus & Style, and Lucky Day!

9.) What's your favorite form of social media?
Instagram or Pinterest!

Printed Lilly Pulitzer chino shorts, a top, and Jack Rogers/Tory Burch Millers
