Liebster Award

Hi lovely readers!
The other day I saw this really great comment on my blog, by Zoe Kottaridi she told me she nominated me for the Liebster Award. I had never heard of it but really thought it was an amazing honor that someone would nominate me! So first of all I want to say: Thank you so much Zoe, I really appreciate it!



When I visited her amazing blog, I found out what this award is all about. The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers. The award was created to let people discover new blogs. So there are some rules for receiving this award (quote from Zoe's blog):



1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Ask 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 9 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate. 
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

So here I go!
Eleven facts about myself:
1. I adore sewing
2. I love cats
3. I like cooking, especially healthy things
4. I;m currently ballroom dancing on top class level
5. I'd love to visit Equador
6. I love cars, did you see that one coming?;)
7. I always tell people that as soon as I graduate from my study, my first salary will be spend on Christian Loubotins, love love love those!
8. Besides clothing I also love to refurbish old furniture
9. I love twenties fashion, working on a twenties dress, so keep an eye on my blog for that one (here's a little hint; violet and lace)
10. I own over 60 pairs of shoes (shaaame on me)
11. I would absolutely pick summer over winter

So here are the 11 questions Zoe came up with for me to answer:

1. What's your favourite thing to do on your free time ? It's very hard to just pick one so I'm gonna list a bunch of thing: dancing, reading, hanging out with friends, designing, sketching, photographing, sewing. 

2. Why do you love fashion? I love fashion because it's a way to express yourself without words. 

3. Choose only one brand to shop from for the rest of your life. Wow this question is hard! I absolutely love the colletion of Zara but if I could pick every brand I wanted, I'd probably go with Alexander Mcqueen. 

4. Describe your every-day life. My everyday life consists out of studying, working, sewing, blogging about my creations, hanging out with friends and family.

5. Are you happy with what you have? Do you miss anything? I'm really happy with what I do, especially since my blog has really grown since I started it a few months back. I'd really love for it to get even bigger! 

6. What brands do you wear the most? I'm not really that much into brands as I used to be, but I'm more about expressing my personal style. Most of the time I mix a simple (cheap) piece of clothing from for example Primark, with something more special and expensive, or of course, made by me!:)

7. Your favourite colour, very hard but since I'm a girly girl I'm gonna answer pink!

8. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why? I'd absolutely love to live on the west coast of the US. I've actually never been there but it seems to me like the weather is amazing, and the landscape is beautiful as well. Allthough Curacao would be great to live on as well!

9. What were you doing 2 hours ago? 2 hours ago I was blogging with my lovely cat sleeping on my lap

10. Where do you want to be right now? I'd really love to be on Curacao right now. It's snowing here and I really don't appreciate winter that much haha

11. Worst thing you've ever done to anyone and why. This really is a tricky question. I'm not really sure what to answer actually! 

So now I have to choose 9 people and ask them 11 questions as well!
Here are the 9 blogs I nominated for the Liebster Award, because I think all of them are amazing and these people deserve it:)
