The Liebster Award

A big thanks to Kelsey of thekelseywolfblog for nominating me for the "Liebster Award."  Be sure to check out her adorable blog. "liebster" means "darling" in German, so essentially it is the "Darling Blog Award." I'll take that nomination! The "Liebster Award" is given to new bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and helps by allowing bloggers to get to know them better. It's kind of like a blogger chain letter but way cooler. Once you are nominated for this award, you must answer the questions posed by the blogger that nominated you and you must nominate 11 of your favorite new bloggers!

Here we go with my questions from Kelsey:

1. What’s your go-to staple piece?
 a great handbag (like this) - black leather with stylish hardware - hard for kids to dirty that one up
2. Favorite season to dress for?
3. Most expensive fashion item you’ve ever purchased?
Oh boy, probably one of my many handbags...the price will remain a secret in case my husband reads this blog post :)
4. What got you into blogging?
I was looking for an outlet away from the stay at home mom gig
5. How long have you been blogging?
a couple months
6. Blogging/fashion inspiration?
all of the many blogs i follow but a couple favorites are Brooklyn Blonde and I am Khatu - her style is just the cutest
7. How would you describe your style?
Classic with a dash of fun (at least that's how I envision it)
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?)
The south of France or Charleston, S.C when I start to miss my family
9. What’s your favorite designer/store?
Rebecca Minkoff/Nordstrom
10. Favorite color?
11. Best piece of blogging advice?
blogging is supposed to be fun - if it's anything but you might need to reevaluate your blogger priorities

Here are my nominees with darling blogs: (I apologize in advance if you're not a "new" blogger or have more than 200 followers - please don't take offense)

Now for my questions....

1. What is your most treasured possession?
2. What's the most adventurous thing you've ever done?
3. What's your favorite food?
4. Where is your favorite place to be?
5. If you could only have one makeup item, what would it be?
6. What/who cheers you up when you're down?
7. Your favorite store to shop?
8. What's your most impressive talent?
9. What's your favorite ice cream?
10. Do you have any pets?/kids?
11. best advice you've ever received? (blogging or otherwise)
