Getting To Know Practically Imperfect

Recently, I was nominated by the Preptista for the Liebster Award. Since I'm so new to blogging, I figured this would be a fun way for you to get to know me and the blog a little better! Huge thanks to Sammy for selecting me as one of her nominees. I can't wait to answer her questions and to ask some of my own!

Describe your dream closet. Think Rachel Parcell's closet + a magnificent hair and makeup station. 

How would you define your personal style in three words? Traditional, versatile, sparkly. 

What is one thing you can't leave a store without buying? Notebooks! The amount of money I am willing to spend on cute paper products is probably unhealthy. Whether I am in Target or Anthropolgie, all my self control goes out the window when I find a cute notebook.

What's your favorite type of dessert and what do you think it says about you? I think the fact that I had the hardest time answering this question says it all! Dessert is absolutely my favorite meal... I can't pick a favorite! 

How did you get started with blogging? About a year ago, I tried to start a travel blog, but it just didn't click. I couldn't think of a name that I loved, had trouble with site design, and didn't want to be confined to just blogging about travel. I set the project aside and came back to it months later when I finally thought of the name Practically Imperfect. It just fit, and during this past summer I refined my vision for what the blog is today. The rest is history! 

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why? Paris! Two summers ago, I had the chance to visit Europe and fell in love with the City of Light. I would give almost anything to hop on a plane right now and go back! 

What's your dream purchase? A white Mercedes G-Wagon. 

What are your top five favorite Instagram accounts? @ihavethisthingwithfloors, @juliahengel, @stephens_louisa, @amy_stone@ohjoy.

What's your favorite social media platform and why? Instagram is my favorite because it allows me to see the world through so many people's perspectives. When someone I follow travels to a cool place, goes to a great restaurant, or captures a beautiful sunset, in a way I feel like I've gotten to be part of those awesome experiences too!

If you had to start a new blog today, what would it be about? It would probably be a food blog. I've always loved cooking (and eating), and all of the recipe posts I have been doing lately have been really fun!  

What is one life lesson you wish you've learned, that you'd like to give to your readers? Think outside the box! When it comes to academics or my career, I always find myself initially thinking that I have to follow in the exact footsteps of those who were successful before me. That is not the case! In order to meet your definition of success, you can't be afraid to do things your own way!
