The Liebster Award!

There's this great little thing that's been going around the blogging community lately, called the Liebster Award, which celebrates blogs with an audience of less than 200 followers. I was recently nominated by Beth from to do this and I got super excited! [See more about that post here.] 
Here are the questions she's asking:

1.What is your favorite under-eye concealer for dark circles? 
Not sure- I currently don't use concealer at all!
2. Favorite tea (if you drink tea). 
TEA IS GREAT! I usually make chamomile or vanilla tea and add a spoonful of honey.
3. What do you like to eat for breakfast?
I've been eating Eggo toaster waffles every day since the 3rd grade or something. But I love when my dad makes hash browns and omelettes on Saturday morning. 
4. Favorite fashion accessory? 
It's this quilted navy blue purse I bought for like $18 years ago at a vintage store in downtown Orange. I wear it every time I go out because it's a cross-body and it's the perfect size for me!
5. Do you wear BB or CC Cream?  And if so, what is your favorite brand? 
Sort of! I wear tinted moisturizer from Boots No. 7 almost every day. 
6. Favorite health snack when you’re on the go? 
Easy: dried mango from Costco. I can eat an entire bag within a week, it's so addicting.
7. Who is your favorite style icon? 
I have a lot- Audrey Hepburn, obviously; Emma Watson; Hayley Williams; Tavi Gevinson and Lupita N'yongo to name a few.
8. Favorite TV show? 
Probably Parks and Rec- which I watch on Netflix on a regular basis. I also love the Big Bang Theory and Friends. 
9. Fun fact about yourself? 
I've been dancing for 6 years and I still can't do the splits. Also, I can eat an entire sleeve of Ritz crackers in under 5 minutes
10. Would you rather live near the mountains or the ocean? 
Near the ocean, just because I love the vibe of beach cities. #nativeCalifornian (:
11. If you could bring three things with you to a deserted island… what would you bring? 
I dislike this question, but if I had to answer I would say: a journal, a knife, and ritz crackers. 

That was pretty fun & I hope you guys got to know me better!
With that, I would like to nominate: (we were both nominated by the same person, but it's all good!)

My questions are:
1. What is your favorite snack food?
2. What genre of music do you listen to the most?
3. Reason you started blogging?
4. If you could live in any other era/decade, which would you choose and why?
5. If you could travel to any destination in the world, where would you go?
6. Who are some of your style icons?
7. Most used app on your smartphone or tablet?
8. What is your favorite book and why?
9. What is your favorite movie and why?
10. What role does personal style play in your life?
11. Fun fact about yourself?

I hope you have fun doing this! If anyone else decides to accept this award, feel free to shoot me an email or comment and I will add you to the above list! 
~Much love, Courtney~

Lately [update]

Lately, I've been busy, but not stressed.
Lately, I've been tired, both mentally & physically.
Lately, I haven't had any time to create outside of school.
Lately, the weather has been heating up to summer-worthy temps.
Lately, I've been listening to a lot of The Killers, Muse, and The Black Keys.

Sorry I haven't been posting a whole lot, but my Spring Break is coming up! Hope you all are well.
