Liebster Blog Award

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

I want to thank Corleen from Barely Practical for nominating me for this award. I have to admit, I hadn't heard of this and had to do some internet searching for info. Here is what I found (via this blog). The Liebster Award is given from one blogger to another up and coming blogger with less than 200 followers. In order to accept the nomination, I must answer the questions that Corleen posted to me + give 11 random facts about myself + nominate other bloggers and ask them 11 questions. Let's go!

11 Facts:
1. I have a three legged cat named Joshie.
2. I would do anything to get to a show during NYFW next year.
3. Convinced that walking into Anthropolgie can brighten even the foulest mood.
4. My go-to dance move is to "raise the roof" (you should try it).
5. Believe the most beautiful place on earth is the Amalfi Coast. 
6. Have a masters degree.
7. Annual Yahoo fantasy football manager.
8. Engaged to the most wonderful man alive.
9. Hardcore Philadelphia sports fan.
10. My favorite show is Project Runway. 
11. LOVE New York City

11 Questions from Corleen:
1. What is your favorite thing about being a blogger ? I love how blogging allows me to express my creativity. I also really enjoy meeting new bloggers and hearing everyone's individual stories.
2. What is your ultimate goal as a blogger ? To open my own boutique. I've always had the idea in the back of my head, but after chatting with Kendi at IFBCON this year, I really think that is the direction blogging will take me.
3. If you could collaborate with one brand, which would it be? Anthropologie. I love everything about their brand from home goods to accessories to clothing.
4. Favorite designer? This is tough. If I was forced to pick one, it would be Vince. Refined and effortless. Perfection.

5. The most awesome thing in your closet is… My Chanel pumps. Amazeballs.
6. Favorite blogger? Another toughie. Right now I'm loving Ashley's blog Witty and Pretty. Its hilarious and I can't help gravitate towards a witty, sarcastic blog mixed with fashion. I also love Lauren's blog L.A. in the Bay. Great photos and always on point fashion styling.
7. Favorite season and why? Fall. Brisk temps, fall fashion and football. Boom.
8. Favorite place to shop? I really miss shopping in Georgetown, D.C with my girlfriends. There is nothing better than strolling on M street popping in and out of Wink, J.Crew, Intermix, Anthropologie. Sigh.
9. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be and why? I'm gonna say Nina Garcia. I love Project Runway and I think she has amazing style. She is intelligent, articulate and I need to know who cuts her hair.
10. When you grew up, you wanted to be… A veterinarian + National Geographic photographer. Honestly, I think as a kid I was confused. That's such a random answer, but its the truth.
11. What are your plans for next year? I am getting married next fall! My fiance and I will likely be moving this summer, but we don't know where (tbd). Its a big year for us and we are really excited. I would love to go back to IFBCON and also start collaborating with other bloggers and brands. Slowly, but surely!

11 Questions for my Nominees:
1. How did you pick the name of your blog?

3. What is your "real job" (not blogging)?
4. What is the most challenging part for you in terms of blogging?
5. What is your favorite city?
6. Name a blog that you can't go without reading on a daily basis
7. Chocolate or Vanilla?
