Tell the World Tuesday!

Tuesday is my favorite day of the week! I have another exciting Tell the World Tuesday feature for you again this week! This week, I am featuring the very beautiful lady Sam of Love Never Fails. I have had the privilege of knowing this woman for almost 7 years, and was so excited that she agreed to be a part of this feature. Fun fact: she is currently studying abroad in Wollongong, Australia! She's a very inspiring woman, and if you aren't following her blog already, you definitely should! But read her feature first!! Take it away Sam!

1. First things first, tell me where you blog and a small paragraph about your blog.
Well, my little corner of the world is called Love Never Fails. I started blogging back in 2009 because my then boyfriend had a lot of friends that did it. I would read their posts all the time about their lives, cool things they found online, or just fun little things like that . I read them for quite a while before it hit me, "HEY! Why don't I do this?!" {Honestly, I just thought it would make me as cool as they were} At first blogging started out for me as like an online journal. A way for me to channel stuff I didn't necessarily want on Facebook or something like that. And if you go back to some of my verrrry first posts, you can tella bid difference in my blogging then, and my blogging now. I fee now it's become one of the greatest "positivity outlets" in my life. I love reading blogs and getting inspiration or motivation from them. I love being able to connect with people in a whole new way. That's pretty much what I feel Love Never Fails is about now... Connection, inspiration, motivation, lots of randomness, and above all else... LOVE.

2. Give me 5 words you use to describe yourself:
loud, rambler, lover, listener, carer

3. Do you use a real alarm clock or your phone? If you use your phone, what tune do you wake up to?
Girlfriend, now that I'm in Australia, I have the simplest phone you can get and that little alarm clock is LOOUUUDDD. So I definitely use that, ha. And the tune I use is called "coconut."

4. What (or who) inspires you most?
This was probably my toughest question...I can't pick out one single thing or person. I just can't... Because I have so many different people and things in my life that continue to inspire me every day in different ways. So, to narrow it down to one, It's just no possible. HOWEVER. For the sake of the feature I will still name just one, of my many inspirations:
JD Ervin. You can find his story here. 58 Forever.
5. Do you read for fun? If so what are you currently reading; or what is a book you recommend?
Give me my nerd glasses and pass me a book, I LOVE TO READ! I have recommended this book into the ground but I just can't help it. I love it that much. Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie. None of the descriptions do it justice though. You just have to read it. For any women that's ever felt a little insecure about life... THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. Also others I recommend, The Hunger Games, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and right now I'm reading the Vampire Diaries series. Yes...Another vampire craze. But to be fair, L.J. Smith wrote TVD books 15 years before Twilight and before the True Blood series as well. (How sad is it that I love all three of the series though?)

6. What is something you've always wanted to do?
Study abroad. Done :)

7. What is your favorite part of the day, and why?
Evening time. Because that usually means classes are over, dinner is soon (I love to eat), and fun times lie ahead whether that be going out with my friends, or cuddling up on the couch watching trash TV.

8. Where is the favorite place you traveled? OR Where is a place you would like to travel?
Australia. Hands down. However, since I already used this as an answer, I will also say that one (of many) places I want to travel is New York City!

9. What's your guilty pleasure (food, tv show, etc.)?
Can I say all the above? Food. TV. Young Adult books.

10. Give your favorite inspirational quote, photo, or both!
I'm a sucker for a good quote. So, again picking just one is tough. I'd say one of my favorites though is:
"The most beautiful people we know are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
11. What is the one thing you want to Tell the World today?
You deserve it all. You ARE worth it. The greatest love one can have is for thyself. And no matter what...
Just learn to love. Because it never fails :)

There you have it folks! The very wonderfully beautiful Sam of Love Never Fails. If you aren't already a follower of her blog, you're definitely missing out. She's posting pictures of her time in Australia, and they're all just as beautiful as she is! Sam, I appreciate you taking up your precious internet time to answer my questions and send me pictures!
