I was so excited when I saw that I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Glambiguous. Instagram is such an amazing resource for finding like-minded bloggers with a passion for fashion and beauty.
The award is a great way to connect with other bloggers because each nominee has to nominate 11 other new bloggers with 1000 followers or less. Once you’re nominated, you answer the questions below in a blog post, link back to the blogger who nominated you and pass it along! It’s a really fun idea and I’m so honoured to be included. Check out my answers to the questions below!
How did you come up with your blog name?
I thought the name The Lilac Mermaid perfectly encapsulated the things I’m most passionate about: beauty, whimsy, femininity, nature, gardens and the list goes on! I’ve always had an affinity for fairies and mermaids, and I’ve always thought lilacs were so beautiful and fragrant ever since I used to pick them with my mom when I was little. I wanted my blog name to connote bright, beautiful, lovely things and I thought The Lilac Mermaid did just that!
Why did you start your blog?
I first started my blog as an online portfolio for my writing as I’m a journalism student, and it quickly evolved into a platform I could use as a creative outlet to share my favourite things with others.
What do you love most about blogging?
I just love the creative aspect of it. Setting up photos and writing posts gives me such a natural high and I love sharing the things I love most with other like-minded individuals.
What’s the most ridiculous but very cool fashion trend you’ve followed?
Super-high wedge booties. I thought they were so cool a few years ago but I never realized they made my feet look giant!
What’s one goal you wish to accomplish this year?
To get a 4.0 GPA.
What is your favourite social media site?
I could scroll through Instagram forever – people take beautiful photos and it can be so inspiring.
How would you describe your personal style?
Boho/comfy/girly if that makes sense!
Spring or fall fashion?
If you could choose one store to shop at for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Either Aritzia or Free People. Love them!!
What is one fear you would like to conquer?
I would really like to conquer my fear of heights so I can jump into the lake or the ocean from the rocks or a bridge. I’ve always been way too scared to do it but it looks really fun!
This was so fun! I’m so excited to see more of these posts on other blogs.
