LIEBSTER Award!



I got a tweet from the lovely fashion blogger Karen from Mission Style UK last night letting me know she had nominated me for the Liebster Award!



Liebster Award? I hear you ask (I hadn't got a clue either)

Basically the Award is a really great idea! It promotes bloggers so we can be introduced and discover each other.

The rules are simple:

1. When you are nominated you have to answer 11 questions from the blogger that nominated you. The questions will be on their blog.

2. Then you choose 11 blogs to pass the award onto and tweet them to let them know you nominated them.

3. Choose 11 new questions for them to answer.

4. Put all this in your blog.


 Here are the questions Karen asked me:

Q1. What's been your best sale buy this season?

My best sale buy this season has been a shift dress by Ben de Lisi at Principles. Shift dresses are my new love, they are easy to wear and can be dressed up or down.

Q2. Flats or heels?
It would have to be heels for the way they make you feel.

Q3. Why did you start blogging?
I moved down to Bath from London and was totally inspired. A friend was a food and travel blogger and kept telling me I should start a blog because of my fashion obsession. Best thing I ever did! Thanks Emma!
 
Q4. What's on your wish list for the AW season?
A pair of brown long leather dents gloves worn with a ¾ length sleeved tweed coat.

Q5. If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Crikey that’s tough. It would be between Topshop or Zara.......hmmmmmm............................Topshop only because I wrote it first :-D

Q6. Where do you get your style inspiration?
I’m permanently looking, whether it is from street style, magazines or style crushes. I keep a mental note of what I see.

Q7. Who would you most like to meet in the fashion world and why?
I was lucky enough to meet him and that was the founder of Mulberry, Roger Saul. Such an interesting story of how he got started. Olivia Palermo and Victoria White (Editor of Company Mag) are just a few of the many people I would like to meet in the fashion world. I think Olivia has amazing eclectic style and Victoria White because I love the Company mag for it’s fab content and love of bloggers.

Q8. Sweet or savoury?
I’m a savoury girl. I think I would miss savoury more than sweet.....oh crikey I don't know :-D

Q9. Cocktails and dancing or, quiet meal and a DVD?
Cocktails and dancing of course! Any opportunity to get styling.

Q10. If you could choose a fashion era to style and wear, what would it be?
1940’s - I love 1940's vintage clothes especially the tailoring.I love coats and the 1940's was all about the fitted tailored coat.

Q11. Do you have any weird talents?
I can walk on my knees.......is that weird enough?




I nominate:

Q1. What is your earliest memory of shopping for clothes?

Q2. Who is your celebrity style crush?

Q3. Marmite - Love it or hate it?

Q4. If you could only take three items of clothing to a desert island what would they be?

  2. Christina thank you so much for nominating me...! I have actually received this award before in the past, and I don't know when it changed but it always used to help promote new blogs with 200 followers or less, so I feel a bit cheeky accepting it - but I really, really appreciate you including me! Unfortunately I have about five interviews pending at the moment so I won't be able to post it or set new questions, but here's answers to ones I can answer quickly for you:

    Q2. Who is your celebrity style crush? Rooney Mara

    Q3. Marmite - Love it or hate it? Hate!

    Q4. If you could only take three items of clothing to a desert island what would they be? Bikini, oversized white cotton shirt & flip flops

    Q5. Primark or H&M? H&M

    Q6. Favourite catwalk model of all time? Linda Evangelista

    Q7. Velvet, Fur or Lace? Fur (faux of course)

    Q10. What is your favourite item of clothing right now? My new 1950s vintage dress (not yet worn!)

    Hope that's okay, I'm so sorry I can't complete it! Thank you again so much...
