Liebster Award 2017

liebster awardSo grateful to be nominated for a Liebster Award this year by the brilliant Margaret Holmes from the blog Cady Quotidienne, thank you babe! Check out Margaret’s post and her beautiful Instagram account. For those of you who don’t know, the Liebster Awards are given out to bloggers annually and we can nominate other bloggers in the process. From what I understand, being nominated is essentially the same as receiving an award. It’s a great way to get to know and support each other! Now for the questions:

Favorite part of blogging?

The best part of blogging is having a creative outlet to express your feelings. I love the freedom of being able to write about any topic I’m passionate about, whether it’s fashion or lifestyle or something completely random. Having control over your own content is very empowering.

What would your superpower be if you could choose?

Definitely the power to fly! It would make going places way easier and more convenient. Think about all the money saved from transportation! Also, if I had wings that would look so cool.

Preferred vacation type/ destination?

Tropical relaxation is my favourite type of trip. Going on adventures is fun but for the most place if I’m on vacation it’s to relax and unwind from busy regular life. My family enjoys going to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico quite often (4 times now) because all the details are taken care of and you can just relax. Anywhere with lots of sunshine, beaches and fruity drinks is my definition of paradise.

Biggest learning experience as a blogger/ business woman?

To get back up and try again. I remember being a new blogger and sending out collaboration proposals with my little media press kit to companies I wanted to partner with, often to no avail. One instance was initially getting rejected by Daniel Wellington, but a year later the watch brand actually sent an email reaching out to partner with me! It was proof that all the effort and time bloggers put into their craft can pay off if you keep trying.

Favorite animal & why?

Cats! Love that they are independent and feisty, but still have a soft cute side to them as well.

Any hidden talents? If we had a talent show, what would you do?

While I can write with both hands, still mastering the art of simultaneously writing different texts at the same time.

Dream project or brand to work with? 

Would love to work with a charity that nurtures entrepreneurship in young women!

One item in your closet that you can’t live without?

My favourite Vera Moda leather jacket (faux, no animals were harmed) it goes well so many outfits and adds a certain tough edginess to any look.

Celebrity or girl crush?

Can’t choose just one! There are so many inspiring girl bosses out there.

What do you hope readers take away from your blog?

To live their lives in a happy and positive manner; always look on the bright side. I hope that my posts make you smile.

I am so happy for all the blogger friends I’ve made this year, and would like to nominate a few:
