Liebster Award

I am so excited to say I was nominated for the Liebster Award by two lovely bloggers! Selbe of Oh, Heaven and Shannon of Much, Most, Darling, thank you both so much for nominating me. The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with under 200 followers on any individual social media platform from fellow bloggers. In order to accept the award, the nominator will provide 11 questions about you and your blog that you must answer. Since I was nominated by two bloggers I'm going to combine the questions into one list!

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog?
I wanted something catchy but also personal, so I used my name! My full name is Kyla Marie Currier-Lewis, so for short KyMarieC.

2. What made you decide to start your blog?
I have been an avid blog reader / YouTube watcher and I always thought "I could do that". With some encouragement from my boyfriend I decided to take the plunge and put myself out there! I also get asked a lot from friends and family how I do my makeup and if I could teach them, along with if I'd take them shopping and help them choose outfits. So I figure if I can help them, I can help others too!

3.  What is your favorite food to make?
I love making homemade Chinese food with my best friend. Dumplings and fried rice are our favorites! Also homemade chicken pot pie is one of my specialties!

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be & why?
Easily Africa! I have wanted to travel to Africa and volunteer at an animal sanctuary since I was 16. I've researched it so much and in the next 5 years I will definitely be going!

5. What's your favorite pastime other than blogging?
Reading, I read a lot. More specifically, I re-read a lot. If I find a book I like I will read it 10 times in a row! I do the same thing with movies I like. I just keep re-watching the movies!

6. What's your favorite post you've written & why?
My favorite post is my 19 Random Facts About Me post. It is my most personal post and the one I was most nervous about posting! But honestly I like sharing my life with everyone and so I really enjoyed putting that post up.

7. What is your favorite holiday & why?
Christmas. Hands down. I still have my Christmas decorations & tree up in my room and I don't plan on taking it down anytime soon.

8. A long lost relative gives you a large sum of money, what do you do with it?
Travel! I want to travel all over, but mainly Africa, Australia, & the UK!

9. When do you typically work on your blog?
I am a full-time live-in nanny, so I work on my blog when the kids are at school and I have some down time.

10. If you have children, what are their names? If not, what are your favorite boy & girl names?
I really like the name Kellan for a boy and as for girls names I don't really have one right now that I really like.

11. What is your all time favorite movie?
I honestly don't have one favorite movie, I could never narrow it down. But I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Harry Potter series, and any&all super hero movies! 

Now is my turn to nominate bloggers!
Caroline of Rainboots and Retail, Emily of Flowers in Emily's Hair, Ada of Adaleta Avdic, Cassie of Simply Classy Cassie, Heather of Thrift Stories, Elle of Elle in the Suburbs, Marissa of Clair with Charm, Jessica of The Petite Diaries, & Madelyn of Glitter Where She Goes!

To accept your award you must:
Answer all 11 questions given to you, comment on this post with a link to your answers so I can read them, in your post be sure to link back to the person that nominated you, & nominate 10 other bloggers for the award!

I love the list of questions I combined so I'm going to give you a similar list!

2. What made you decide to start your blog?
