The Liebster Award

January 18, 2015





I was recently nominated for the Liebster  Award by three lovely ladies, Destinee, Kelsey, and PJ Middleton. Thank you girls for the nominations! If you are not familiar with the Liebster Reward, it is a reward created to recognize new or small bloggers. "Liebster" can be defined as kind or sweet. This reward is definitely a very sweet gesture. 

        The rules are as followed: 
#1 Link the person who nominated you 
#2 Answer the questions given by the nominator 
#3 Nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers 
#4 Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer 
#5 Notify all nominees via social media / blog 


1. When did you start your blog and why? I started my blog in September of 2014. I had owned a Instagram fashion account called 'classyinthesouth' beforehand, and was then introduced to the fashion community. My feed was filled with adorable outfits and blog links to some great tips and tricks. My Instagram account was hacked and deleted in August. I was not sure if I was going to make another account due to the fear of getting hacked again. 
Instead of making a new account, I started following blogs. I was interested in blogging before that, but was really intrigued then. One day, I finally logged onto google, created my blog domain, and started creating. With my new blog, came my new Instagram page, aseersuckerstateofmind. 

2. Is there a story behind your blog name? To be honest, there really isn't an deep, sentimental story behind my blog name. I looked through my closet and saw my mass collection of seersucker items and BAM! The name A Seersucker State of Mind popped into my head. 

3. Where is your favorite place to shop? As a  high school student, I really do not have that much cash in my closet. I love shopping at J. Crew Factory, Vineyard Vines, Forever 21, and Instagram closet accounts. J. Crew Factory always has amazing discounted prices! With Vineyard Vines, I love their t-shirts. The quality is amazing! They may be quite pricey, but they are worth every penny. I discovered closet accounts on Instagram. My number one tip to shopping on Instagram is to ask A LOT of questions. Ask if there are an stains, rips, or other imperfections. Ask for closeups of the clothing piece and tag. If they are not able to provide that information, then I would not recommend purchasing from them.


4. What is your favorite drugstore beauty find? I love the Covergirl Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 foundation. I have very oily skin, and this keeps me matte all day!


5. What is your favorite book? I do not read many books. I mostly read blogs and magazines, but I would have to say any John Greene book. Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, and The Fault in Our Stars are all really interesting.


6. Coffee or tea? My answer is hands down coffee! I have never really been a fan of tea. I have seen so many girls on YouTube and blogs rave over certain teas. With me, one sip of tea is the last sip. I have a local coffee shop that brews the best White Chocolate Caramel Mocha! It might even beat Starbuck's.


7. What is your instagram? My Instagram is ASeerSuckerStateofMind

8. What are your favorite shoes to wear? I love wearing boots! Riding boots, winter boots, cow-girl boots, rain boots, you name it! I love them all! There is literally a boot for every occasion. 

9. Fall style or summer style? Although I adore summer, I would have to say fall style. I love pulling out my scarves and sweaters for this season. Oh, the many outfits I can make different and change up. Layering an oxides, sweater, and statement necklace is always my go-to fall outfit. 

10. Would you rather buy mascara or lipstick? Mascara all the way! I love the look of long, effortless lashes. I have never been interested in defining my lips, because I love focusing my makeup on my eyes. 

11. What is your guilty please? Andes Mints! If you do not love Andes Mints, I don't even know what to say to you. I don't get them often, but when I do, they are gone in a split second. I love the combination of mint and chocolate, so this candy definitely has my name written all over it.
