I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the adorable Kalee from Fred Rongo! How amazing is that? She is one of the first blogs I followed when I started up so I am honored to have her recognize me for this award. You seriously need to check her blog out. She is so sweet!
First I'm going to answer the questions Kalee asked me, then I'll explain more about the award and list 11 random facts about moi! Here we go:
1) How did you come up with your blog name?
For those of you who don't know, I'm a Film major! One day in class we learned about the term, 'auteur' [pronounced 'oh-tare'] which is defined as "a filmmaker who influences their movies so much that they rank as their author." So when it came to choosing my blog name, I remembered that word and thought it fit nicely with my outlook on life in general: I want to be the one and only author of my life and be in full control of the creativity and content that goes into my blog. So voila! Slap my first name right after that and you've got: Auteur Ariel!
2) A book you've read recently.
Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad. I'm a huge LC fan! Team Lauren all the way!
3) Gold or Silver?
Gold! Which is weird because the majority of my jewelry is silver...
4) Name one pet peeve.
When people don't give a straight answer.
Me: What are we having for dinner tonight?
Person: Does it matter?
Me: No, I just want to know.
Person: Why do you have to know?
Me: Because I'm curious.
Person: Well, you'll find out when we eat.
5) What's something you learned recently?
How to jump a car! I'm a total grease monkey now not really.
6) What is your favorite season and why?
Fall! Because of the fashion (: Scarves, boots, layers, oh my!
7) Is being a blogger everything you thought it would be?
That and more! I didn't realize how amazing the blogger community is! I've already made so many friends and I've only been blogging for about 4 months!
8) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Greece. I just watched the episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where they visit Greece and I fell in love.
9) Are you a morning person?
NO. I am a hardcore night owl. I don't remember the last time I went to bed before midnight and woke up before 9am. teehee.
10) What advice would you give new bloggers?
Be patient. Don't expect your numbers to shoot up overnight. Blog about what you love and what's important to you. If you blog it, they will come. (;
