Liebster Award

I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award by Eve over at Evedorith.blogspot.com  and Linh over at the fashion breeze blog. A liebster award is something sort of like a chain letter that has been floating around the blogger community. It’s a chance to recognize new bloggers; all you have to do is tag (Notify them on their blog) 10 of your favorite newish bloggers who have under or around 200 followers and create 10 questions for them to answer. In return they will nominate 10 new bloggers and create 10 new questions (and the chain continues). Be sure to link back to those who nominated you!  I really like the idea of this sort of “award” it’s nice to hear that someone is out there reading your blog! When you first start blogging it can be discouraging to think your content is not reaching anyone so when I received this it really kept me motivated to keep posting!




Eve’s Questions
1. What is your go-to clothing/accessory piece? I would say my most reached for piece of clothing is one of my many chambray shirts. You can dress them up or wear them casually I seriously find myself buying a new one every time I go shopping.

2. What store would you want to spend $5,000 in? I would say a department store like Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom. You could get the most brand selection here; I typically don’t like to stick to one store for a lot of purchases as you start to look like a walking advertisement for them.

3. If you could buy one designer piece, what would it be? I think it would have to be a Céline mini luggage tote in black or the Louis Vuitton W bag. Both are beautiful and I would love to get my hands on one!

4. If you could meet any person in the fashion industry, who would it be? I would love to meet Carolina Herrera because she creates such beautiful and feminine pieces and really knows how to create flattering clothing for woman.

5. What is your dream job? My degree is in public relations (currently I work in the Oil and Gas industry doing absolutely nothing related to this degree hah!) And if I had my dream job it would be as an event/PR coordinator of some sorts. I have always loved planning parties and events from birthdays to bridal showers. It’s just so fun and rewarding to see all your hard work and details pay off with a successful event.

6. How do you feel about the new slip-on trend? I love it! I remember these were popular a while back and loved them then too! It’s such a no fuss casual look that can easily be mixed in with high end pieces as well as more affordable options (basically anyone can rock this!).

7. Which fashion week would you most want to go to (Paris, Milan, London, New York, etc.)? That would have to be Paris hands down. I mean what girl wouldn’t love to see Paris during fashion week or any week for that matter! I have yet to visit Paris and it’s definitely something I hope to do someday.

8. What is your favorite fashion house/designer? I love watching runway shows online since I can’t exactly go to them in person. Watching these shows gives me so much energy and creative inspiration. It’s really hard to pick just one so some of my favorites are Marchesa, Valentino, Bagdley Mischka, Tory Burch, and Armani Prive. If you don’t notice a trend I love super light/airy/feminine/ornate detail. I really would have nowhere to ever wear most of these items but it’s always nice to dream (sigh).

9. Who are your style icons? I love Jessica Alba’s style; she’s fun and funky but never goes crazy with her outfits. I am pretty sure I you would never see her on a worst dressed list. I also love Olivia Palermo; she has such classic style and always looks so effortless in her outfits. I think that’s what makes any style great if you have confidence in what you are wearing then it just works!

10. Who are your top 5 favorite bloggers?
I hands down love Joanna Goddard from a Cup of Jo. She is just so relatable in her posts you feel like you are one of her friends. She’s so real with her readers and talks about everyday events from motherhood to fashion. For beauty related reads I always go to Vivianna from ViviannaDoesmakeup. She is a UK beauty blogger that I have followed for a few years now. She always has the best skincare picks. I trust every one of her recommendations. Merrit Beck of the Style Scribe is one of my favorite Style bloggers. Her taste is impeccable and she always looks effortless and never overly trendy. Rosie from The Londoner is my go to girl for lifestyle and food blogging. She is also out of the UK, and is always on some kind of crazy adventure/vacation and chronicles each step of the way.



Linh’s Questions:

Questions:
1) What's your favorite song at the moment? I really love the song Pompeii by Bastille. I always crank up my radio when it comes on!

2) If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be? I would love to be Rachel Zoe, she is around so much fashion I think it would be so much fun to be her for a day…. preferably during fashion week or award show season.

3) What's your middle name? Roberta (family name)

4) What is one thing that you really like about yourself? I hate questions like these… I’m going to go with something superfluous like I love how long my eyelashes are ;)

5) If you were stuck with one person in a lift/an elevator for six hours, who would you like to be in there with? That’s a hard question; I get irritated pretty easily so I think anyone would be terrible to be stuck with in an elevator with for that long. But If I had to pick someone it would probably be my boyfriend.

6) What kind of drunk are you? Hmm depends on the mood I was in that day, usually I’m pretty fun but all my friends would say that they rarely see me drunk.

7) Do you have any allergies? If so, what are they? I am allergic to two types of antibiotics… I am not even going to try and spell them right now.

8) Whose your celebrity crush? I love Dave Franco, He is hilarious in every movie I have seen him in and he is so adorable.

9) What's the best advice you have ever received? You will never succeed if you don’t try…

10) Why did you start your blog? I started my blog as an outlet for my creativity. I always loved sharing make up and fashion finds with my friends so why not share it with others?!

11) Confess something. I sleep in my make up all the time. I know it’s terrible but sometimes I am just too lazy and tired to deal with taking it off.

These are the 10 bloggers that I follow and enjoy reading. I know some of them have already received this award from others but honestly who cares? It’s nice to keep getting encouragement from fellow bloggers.
