I have been nominated by Meghan (immalady) for the Liebster Award! It is an online award given to newer bloggers from other bloggers who have discovered their blog. I appreciate Meghan for taking the time to nominate me! Super cool of you to have given me this shout out!
My 11 Questions from immalady:
1. What led you to start blogging?
I wanted to start up a new hobby as a new stay-at-home mom where I could dedicate some time and do something creative, express myself, and write about & photograph new products that I have tried, little family trips we take, motherhood, family events, etc.
2. What is your favorite part about blogging?
The fact that I can share a little part of my life through this hobby with family, friends, and the blogging community by writing and photographs. Showing instead of telling.
3. What is your go-to dish to take to a potluck or party?
I think tacos. I just love tacos. They are my favorite food, when done right of course.
4. What is your must have beauty product?
I really enjoy foundations and highlighters.
5. Who is your dream dinner party guest?
Probably some of my favorite youtubers like Desi Perkins, Katy LustreLux, or Kathleenlights.
6. What is one piece of advice you’d give your younger self?
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
7. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
It’s my nickname Cecy (short for Cecilia) and my middle name Margarita.
8. What is the best blog post you’ve written so far? Share the link!
The post about my family trip to Tulum, Mexico…I even made a video for it!
9. Do you prefer to have a plan or be spontaneous?
I usually prefer to have some sort of plan. I love remembering what I want to do or have to do, because if I have no plan at all, in the end I’ll feel bad if I forgot to do a lot of what I actually wanted to do.
10. What is your most prized possession?
My engagement/wedding rings and my family photograph collection.
11. What do you feel is most important for your blog readers to takeaway from your blog?
I love being inspired by other bloggers and finding out about new products and places and hope that I can inspire others as well.
