Liebster Award Nominations for New Bloggers

A big great thank you to Sara at Staffordable blog for nominating me for the Liebster Award. First time hearing about this and super excited to nominate 11 other new bloggers and welcome them to the community.

So, for those of you who don 't know, Liebster Award is an award that get's passed from person to person to help recognize new bloggers and encourage connection and support within our blogging community. All you have to do is answer the 11 questions that I've created below and come up with 11 new questions to pass onto 11 new bloggers. Long as they have less than 1000 followers/subscribers you can nominate them. Fairly simple, eh? So, let's get started:-)

1) When did you start blogging and why? 

I wrote my very first blog post back in February of 2014, but I wouldn't necessarily call it official since I posted 4 times and well the typical excuse, I got busy and didn't post again until late December 2014. I started blogging because I've always wanted a place to express my thoughts and opinions and to connect with people with similar interests. Over the last few years I've dedicated a lot of my time to work and school and never really any time for the things that truly make me happy.

2) How did you come up with your blog name?

Seems silly, but at the time I was obsessed with the Wunder Under Pant *full-on luon (roll down) at Lululemon and well I think I wore them everyday for a week straight, so I named my blog after a pair of pants, silly I know. The Bliss part at the end just sounded awesome and I like to think for the most part I am a pretty blissful individual:-) 

3) What's your favourite thing to wear in your closet?

My ultimate favourite thing to wear is my black leggings with ankle booties and an over-sized sweater, paired with my lovely army green parka from Dynamite. As much as I love dressing up, I feel as though you can still look phenomenal with your hair in a messy bun with the right accessories and the perfect shade of lip-stick.

4) If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Hands down, Sushi! Living on the West Coast of Canada, I feel as though we are privileged to have some of the best sushi in the world other than Japan, of course. Right now, I usually have sushi 3-4 times a week because I'm pretty much hooked on the taste and price.

5) Other than blogging, what is a hobby you pursue?

I really enjoy running as I find it's a great way to escape reality. It has to be outdoors as I am not a fan of running at the gym on the treadmill. I would really like to sigh up for a marathon this summer to truly push myself. Better start training hard!

6) What is your biggest pet peeve?

Loud chewing!! My sister is well known for this. I give her shit about it all the time and even tell her that it drives me crazy. At this point, I feel as though she does it on purpose just to piss me off even more. Oh sisterly love!

7) What is the best thing that has happened to you in your life to date? 

My ex breaking up with me to be with someone else. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have met the most amazing, loving, kick ass boyfriend I am with today. He's stuck with me through some really tough times and has always been truly supportive. All the happiness and encouragement he has brought to my life is unbelievable and I am forever grateful. But, I won't get all sappy on you:-)

8) Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?

Sounds like my most recent interview question! That's a tough one because I can't even tell you where I see myself in the next 2 years. I use to think I had it all figured out, but as I've gotten older I started discovering more areas that I would possibly be interested in pursuing. Career wise I hope to find myself successful with a job I absolutely adore, keep doing things that make me happy, and be able to travel to places I never dreamed of.

9) What are your favorite 3 stores?

I adore so many shops, but, if I could narrow it down to just 3 they would definitely be Winners, Forever 21, and H&M. Winners is great because they have designer brands for affordable prices, which ultimately allows you to indulge more often. Yeah, it may be last season items, but they still look fantastic once styled. Forever 21 is one of those stores that I go into looking for something specific and get overwhelmed with the amount of clothing they have on the racks. However, I always end up finding something I adore. H&M is one of those stores where you can find a staple item for your outfit and dress it up or down.

10) Where is somewhere you would like to travel to?

I would love to visit Australia. My best friend Ava goes every year for Christmas and she always comes back with such incredible clothes and raves about all the unique clothing boutiques she discovers. Maybe I'll even go with her one day and she can show me around, that would be pretty neat. Australia has always fascinated me by all the things it has to offer and I've met some incredible Australians on other trips and they are seriously the nicest people! I find the people that you meet where you travel to really make or break a place.

11) What is the best thing you have blogged about so far?

Bit disappointed with myself and that I haven't posted as much I would like to, so I'd have to say that the best thing that I blogged about so far is the DIY-Valentine's Day Gifts for him. I think it was because it was a gift for someone that I love which made it so much more enjoyable.
