Recently, I received a comment from the two lovely ladies of the blog, Gardenias & Mint, nominating barefoot brunette for a Liebster award. I didn’t know much about this “award” so I did a little reading and it’s really such a sweet gesture from fellow bloggers. After doing some research, I learned that the Leibster is a way to recognize newer bloggers with a smaller following that have great potential. Before I started my blog I never realized just how many blogs there are out there! I still don’t know. But I know it’s A LOT. I have a great time writing blog post regardless but let’s be honest, it’s even more fun when you get a few likes and a few new followers! That said, I am up for anything that supports fellow bloggers.
There are a few rules that go along with the nomination:
- Mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog
- Answer the 11 questions they asked you
- Nominate other bloggers with a smaller following but a lot of potential
- Create 11 questions of your own for your nominees to answer
- Notify your nominees
Here are the questions and my answers:
1. If you could live anywhere where would it be?
Hawaii for sure. Sounds cliché I know, but I traveled there for the first time on 2012 and it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been.
2. What was the best concert you ever been to?
That’s tough… both Britney Spears and Kenny Chesney were so fun
3. Any hobbies (besides blogging)?
Does shopping count?
4. What do you do to relax?
Walk my dogs, read or sit somewhere quiet
5. How would you describe your personal style?
Casual & comfortable are all that matters to me. I don’t have a specific style. I wear what I’m in the mood for…sometimes feminine and sometimes edgy.
6. Favorite junk food?
7. Favorite health food?
8. Cat or dog person?
Dog (I have 2: Zoey and Buddy)
9. Favorite places to shop?
Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Anthro, Target
10. Any celebrity crushes?
Christian Bale aka Batman
11. Go-to accessory item?
**I am looking for blogs to nominate. The goal is to nominate blogs with a small following (like mine!) Please comment if you are a blog with under 200 followers… I would love to show my support to fellow new bloggers. Will post my nominations in a separate post.
