I'm So Thankful for My Blog Buddies (Tag)

Hi Ladies!
I came across Ashley's "Im So Thankful for My Blog Buddies" Tag on her blog Ashley Maria . I really enjoy learning more about the fantastic women that I interact with on a daily basis so I decided to do this tag as well!  If you'd like to participate in the tag, just publish a post answering the questions below about your blog, about yourself, and then tag some other great blog buddies you're thankful to have so they can do the same!

 About My Blog 

How long have you been blogging?

I've been blogging since September 2013. 

Are there any bloggers who helped you out/encouraged you when you first started your blog?

There are so many lovely ladies that have helped me out and that I truly appreciate! 
Here is the list!

Lily from Beauty with Lily
Shalunya from Shalunya and Boyet
Sissi from Beauty4Free2U
Jackie from Five Two Certified

If I missed anyone...I'm sorry! And I'm thankful for you too!

What Social Media has given you the most traffic to your blog? Is there a platform that you don’t use?

I get the most traffic through Google+. I don't really use Twitter and am slowly learning the whole Instagram thing. I post on Facebook but don't really get much traffic on there.

How often do you post? Do you have a regular schedule?

I usually post 3-4 times a week. I have been posting more often than I thought I was going to when I originally started my blog. I usually post during the week Mon-Thurs.

Where do you blog?

Either at home or at work. But I usually comment and read other blogs everywhere.

What camera do you use?

I mainly use my Galaxy III since the camera quality is pretty good and all of my pictures are backed up onto the google cloud. I can edit on there too so it makes things super easy. When I shoot more videos I may use my digital camera.

How did you come up with your blog name?

My blog first started off as a fashion and beauty blog (which it still is) but I have been doing a ton of beauty related posts recently. When I was searching for a name I found a site that gave tips on how to name your fashion blog. The tip that stuck out to me was something like "pick two of your favorite fashion related items and pair it with a dessert". I used this site to brain storm and came up with Leopard Lace and Cheesecake. Leopard and lace are two of my favorite prints/designs and cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts. I feel that leopard and lace are timeless prints and fabrics that have made their way through fashion history and continue to evolve.
Do you do any regular “series” posts on your blog?

The one "series" that I do is "Get the Look for Less" where I find pictures of celebrities and then try to find similar, affordable, and obtainable items for the everyday woman. I also do website and product reviews and tutorials.

What draws you to a blog?

The topic of a post is what draws me to a blog. When I first became a member of the Google + community I starting checking out beauty and fashion posts. The blogs that attracted me were posts that interested me and were easy to read (not too lengthy or complicated). What kept me reading these blogs (and then continued to follow) were bloggers that I felt that I could relate with.
What turns you off of a blog?

A ton of ads all over the page or a ton of people commenting but the blogger not responding.

How many blogs do you subscribe to?

Probably 20 or less right now. Its really easy to get overwhelmed and I don't want to do that to myself. I won't enjoy doing this as much if I have too many blogs that I have to keep up with. I want to be able to read peoples posts and comment on them regularly. Having too many would make it hard to experience the blogs and connect with the bloggers  in the same way that I do now. That is how I feel right now at this point in time.

When do you generally read blogs?

Whenever I can and probably when I shouldn't too. At work throughout the day, when I get home at night, on the weekend.

What is your favorite type of post, and why?

I really do love all reviews. Reviews have really helped me decide on purchases in the past.  Whether it be  beauty products, a subscription services, a clothing items, a comforter set, and even vacations.

What is your least favorite type of post, and why?

My least favorite post are things that get really technical or sound like you are reading off of a box. I like hearing about things in ways that I can understand and in a manner that sounds like you are talking to a girlfriend.
About Me!!!

Where do you live?

I live about 30 minutes south of Boston, MA.
What about your home?

I live in a townhouse that my husband and I purchased before our wedding in 2012. This is the first time we are both living on our own.

Do you have a “day job”?

Yes, I could only wish to do this for a living...I work for an IT Company as an Executive Assistant/Sales Support/Purchasing Agent. I wear many hats.

How tall are you?

About 5' 5"

Do you have siblings?

You ready for this one? I have one sister (from my mom), two brothers (from my dad), a stepbrother (from mom) and a stepbrother and stepsister (from my dad)!

3 words to describe yourself.

Determined, Loyal, Passionate

Who is your style icon, and why?

Oh man, I hate these kind of questions. There are so many celebrities that I think have awesome style. I have always liked Hilary Duff's style...Nicole Richie is such a style icon. Some of the things she wears I wouldn't be able to pull off but I do appreciate her style. I also think Miranda Kerr is always looking fab. Lauren Conrad is always looking classic and polished. I also like Khloe Kardashian's style. She is a chameleon and has so many different styles which I feel like I can relate to.

3 favorite bands/musicians.

Chris Brown- Although his personal life is not something to brag about...he can sing and dance and is a very talented man.

Usher-Amazingly talented creating hit after hit with a beautiful voice.

Weekend-Such a unique and different singer. His voice is almost haunting.
3 favorite movies.

The Notebook
Pearl Harbor

3 favorite books.

The Mortal Instrument Series 
Hush Hush Series
The Vampire Academy Series

Sorry I can't pick just 3.

3 random/weird facts about you.

I sometimes think I have OCD.

I sometimes talk and walk in my sleep (I have even texted a friend while I was asleep). My husband sometimes talks/walks in his sleep too--I know we are creepy and weird lol

I can pick things up with my toes. lol

I hope that you enjoyed learning more about me!

xoxo Tanya
