Liebster Award – Thank you to everyone!


I am so happy to receive the Liebster Award from Mommy Loves Nail Polish, Polish Alcoholic, Badmani and The Blog of a Nail Art-A-holic. Thank you so much for the nominations! It is amazing to be recognized considering that I am such a new blogger. Thanks! 🙂

I have answered all the questions below and added new questions for my nominees.

What is the “Liebster Blog Award?”
It’s an award that was reputedly started in Germany in order to give smaller bloggers recognition for their hard work. You receive this award from a fellow blogger that feels your blog is both worthy & important to them.

The rules are:
1) Post eleven facts about yourself
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated
3) Choose eleven people to give this award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them in your post
4) Go to their page and tell them
5) Remember, no tag backs

I would like to pass on the love to other bloggers who I enjoy following. I’m going to nominate blogs that haven’t been nominated for the Liebster Award yet. Here are the blogs:

Questions from The Blog of a Nail Art-A-holic:

Mainly indie music – Death Cab For Cutie, The Shins, etc.
Who would you say is your Doppelgänger (famous person/icon that looks most like you)?

Can we switch places?
Pick 3 things that you are not able to live without.

GHD, foundation, series 🙂
What is the strangest food (or food combination) you have ever tasted?

I love Korean food, but the one thing I can’t stand is the fact that they put sugar on garlic bread. Never a good combination.
Have you ever won a competition, and if so, what was it for?

I won gold earrings when I was about 8, and a clock radio in elementary  school. Haha 🙂 That’s it.
Which animal would you say best represents you?

A domestic cat – mostly relaxed and calm, but can get a bit feisty.
If you were a colour, which one would you be?

Do you have a signature style (or mannerism, phrase etc), and if so, what is it?

I always say “..you know what I mean?” – very annoying! 🙂

  1. Yay! I am so pleased you are happy about the award! Love your answers! I bet we would get along in person 🙂 I think I follow at least 50 trillion thousand hundred (in the words of my son) polish blogs, but it was nice to be able to formally acknowledge some of my favs.

  2. Oh, and I like the Leibster Blog logo you have in this post (it looks like a pile of mail :)) – do you mind if I copy it for my blog.

  3. Congratulations on your nomination! So, I also decided to nominate you for the Liebster award funnily enough, because I follow your blog and LOVE the designs you constantly come up with! You help inspire me to keep doing my nails! That’s why I decided to nominate you! http://blogofanailartaholic.wordpress.com
