So I recently just received a little bit of news that I wanted to share here on my blog! :)
I recently got nominated for a Liebster award! At first I had no clue what this was but after doing a little bit of research, I found out that this is an award where you nominate blogs that have a following below 200 followers.I don't think that this is an actual award wherein you win something. I think the purpose of this award so to speak, is to give recognition to bloggers that don't have a huge following and as well as encourage bloggers to support and promote each other and create a supportive atmosphere for new bloggers.
How does this liebster award fulfill its purpose? Well, personally I think I can compare the liebster award to something like a blog roll with a bit more depth. Here are the rules to follow when you are nominated for one:
- Share 11 things about yourself
- Answer the 11 questions that your tagger gave you
- Choose 11 fellow blogs to nominate.
- The nominees must have less than 200 Google Friend Connect Followers and be told via comment on their blog
- Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated
- Thank the person that nominated you and link back their blog
So, without further a do, let me start my Liebster award nominee responsibilities by sharing 11 things about myself:
- I am not a morning person at all, but I like to get a lot of things done so I have to force myself to wake up early.
- I have 4 first names excluding my middle name and my surname which means that my full name totals to 6. :)
- I am very random and by that I mean EXTREMELY random. You'll probably see that once in a while here on my blog as I blog about fashion to food to my latest getaway to probably the silliest thing I've done so far.
- I have a tendency to be extremely indecisive. It took me almost a year and a half to decide if I wanted to take blogging seriously and then another 6 months to decide which blogging platform I should use!This is also the very reason why I have a tumblr and a wordpress account!
- I love all things Harry Potter. I am a huge fan of the A VERY POTTER MUSICALS by Starkid Productions. I felt like a lunatic when I watched A VERY POTTER SENIOR YEAR cause I was crying and laughing at the same time and singing along to some of the songs I knew!
- I can eat anything with chocolate.
- I love collecting books.
- I consider myself a lazy girly girl, meaning I love all things girl from clothes to make up to accessories (I prefer jewelry though) but I am always almost to lazy to even bother wearing them.
- I always keep an open mind and don't always believe my first impressions of people.
- I would love to be able to take great photos all the time and learn photoshop!
- I would love to travel the world and discover who I really am in this world.
Here are the 11 questions my tagger gave me:
1. How you love spending your time?
I love to spend my time by reading, catching up with my favorite TV shows and movies, working out, sleeping and cooking or eating. :)
2. Two clothing items that you can't live without?
Leggings and a loose top! Perfect for a lazy me. :)
3. What can people learn from your blog? Or what do you want them to?
I don't really know what people can learn from my blog or what I want them to learn because I'm really not an expert on any of the things I blog about, I honestly just blog because I feel like blogging is my outlet to make sure my brain won't combust from so many random thoughts. So I guess if I would really answer this question, I would want people to learn about me and who I really am, to some extent.
4. If you could pack your bags right now and move to another city, which one would it be?
This for me is a difficult one! I've always loved to travel and live anywhere in the world! I've always dreamt of moving to Paris, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Iceland and South Africa! I know it seems odd, as a girl who adores fashion and style, I should be picking either Paris or London but I do have family in San Francisco and Los Angeles, California that I haven't seen in a while. Iceland and South Africa on the other hand honestly, are my top 2 because if I wanted to pack my bags and leave, I'd go where no one would ever think I would go to and these are the 2 places I would pick because I find these places fascinating! Out of the two though, I would probably pick South Africa. :)
5. If you could meet one famous person, who would you choose?
If I could meet one famous person, I would probably be torn between Coco Chanel, J.K. Rowling and Jesus Christ.
6. A sunny day at the beach or a cold, snowy day at the mountains?
A sunny day at the beach. :)
7. Most amazing thing, memory or day of your life?
There's so much I can't even remember!
8. Favourite scent?
I don't really have a favorite scent but I always prefer something citrusy or floral, something that would exude sophistication and elegance when you smell it. Never sugary sweet and over powering.
9. Describe your style in 3 words
Simple, convenient and Proper.
10. What is the motto of your life?
I have a lot of motto's in life, but my favorite ones are:
"If you can think of it, do it."
"When you get mad, don't get back, get everything"
"When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, lemon pie, and everything else that you can make with lemons."
11. What is your favourite beauty product?
My favorite beauty product would probably be my eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. :)
