The Liebster Award

Most bloggers, at some point, have heard of or received the Liebster award. It is an award presented to bloggers by bloggers that follows similar principles as a chain letter. It is a great way to connect with and recognize fellow bloggers whose work you admire, as well as a great form of cross-marketing, especially for newbies like myself, as the award is given to bloggers with a following of less than 1000.

I am extremely honored to be nominated by Melody Sours of Blingaholic 88, whose blog I really admire. As a new blogger it is very reassuring and motivating to have my work recognized.

The rules of the Liebster Award have changed over time, so I am going to follow the guidelines Melody has listed:
Post the award on your blog.
Thank the blogger who presented the award.
Write 11 random facts about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions posted by the presenter.
Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 1,000 followers.
Ask 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

So, here are my 11 random facts:
I am from Transylvania, and I am allergic to garlic.
I have a Masters' Degree in Communication, and a Bachelor's in Public Relations.
I worked as a university Communication instructor for two years.
I have a huge passion for creative advertising.
My interest in fashion started with sewing clothes for my Barbies.
My dream is to work in fashion PR.
My favorite color is turquoise.
What I love the most about fashion is that it allows me to express a different side of me every day. 
I have a huge passion for Ballroom and Latin dancing, I competed twice. 
While I don't believe in astrology, I am a typical Gemini. 
I thrive in a multicultural environment. I love meeting people from diverse backgrounds and learning something new from them every day.
I hope to someday live in Paris. What a cliché, I know! I visited the city three times, but I cannot have enough of it.

My responses to Melody's questions:
Where do you see your blog in 3 years?
I love and need constant change, so it could end up anywhere! In three years I hope to be a blogger with a more defined, unique voice, a more evolved personal style, and to write about a larger variety of fashion and lifestyle related topics. I would also love to push my blog in a more magazine-like direction.
What is the best blogging or career advice you’ve ever gotten?
Find your unique voice, and don't be afraid to take risks. That's what sets you apart from the crowd.
What’s your sign? Gemini.
What is your favorite blog post you’ve ever posted (insert a link)?
I loved to share my thoughts on the clothing budget. Most of us, fashionistas, have limited money to work with, and managing a clothing budget can help enormously in making wiser choices. I think setting a budget made me a better dresser, and since it took me a while to find a method that really works, I wanted to save my readers the hassle.
What is your favorite budget friendly store?
It is impossible to choose one! DSW, Forever 21, Marshalls and TJ Maxx are my favorites.
Who is your fashion inspiration? Olivia Palermo.
Her style always looks like an exercise in how to make neutrals and classics stylish and exciting.
How have you stepped out of your fashion comfort zone since blogging?
I can't think of a specific post that forced me outside my comfort zone. I love variety in my life, thus I enjoy and see the beauty in many different styles and trends.  However, having the courage to actually wear those styles and trends instead of merely admiring them on others was definitely challenging.
What advice would you go back and give your 18 year old self? Trust your gut.
What is your favorite lipstick shade (or cologne for guys)? Burgundy
Who is your favorite fashion designer?
I don't have a favorite, but I keep returning to Gucci collections. 
I also love Rebecca Minkoff and Celine accessories.
What is the dream fashion item you’d love to someday own?
I still can't get enough of the Celine Luggage Tote.

My questions to the 11 lovely ladies I am nominating:
Why did you begin blogging?
What part of blogging do you enjoy the most?
What was the most challenging aspect of blogging for you?
 How would you describe your voice as a blogger?
How has your style changed since you started posting?
What is your go-to outfit?
Who is your fashion icon?
What is the dream fashion item you’d love to someday own?
What are 3 pieces in your wardrobe you can't live without?
 Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
 What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?

Last, but not least, the nominees. 
There are so  many talented bloggers out there. It was truly  difficult to choose 11. Here are some of the superb blogs I admire for their content, photography, layouts, and overall style. I hope to connect and collaborate with you soon.
