Liebster Blog Award

Helsinki, 13 degrees

I don't have to hide or be somebody I'm not. I don't have to compromise. I can just be myself.

Lucky as I am, with the great readers I have, I received the Liebster Award from the Italian blog The Chic and Cheap Blog. I have earlier received an award called Liebster Blog which I think resembles this award, but since they don't look the same, I consider them to be two different nominations. Thank you so much for the nomination, it means the world to me!

These are the rules of the nomination:

1. When you receive the award thank the person that gave you it and post the link to his/her blog in your post.
2. Then you (receiver of the award) post eleven things about yourself.
3. Answer the eleven things that tagger has set for you.
4. Choose some inspiring bloggers with under 200 followers and link their pages in your post. Then create eleven questions for them to answer.
5. Go to their pages and tell them about the nomination.
6. No tag backs!

My 11 things about me:

1. I prefer to buy clothes online. I only rarely go shopping in shopping centers and department stores.
2. I'm crazy about lobsters, crayfish and fish roe! My favorite dish is macaroni casserole, made by my special someone.
3. My dream bag is Mulberry's Alexa Bag.
4. I love watching Dance, X-Factor, Shark Tank, Revenge, America's Next Top Model, Masterchef and diverse interior TV shows.
5. I have a huge collection of Audrey Hepburn items and pictures, I can't get enough of her!
6. I'd like to go to Coldplay's concert one day!
7. I love international interior design, lifestyle and fashion blogs.
8. I love heels but when I go out, I as good as always have a bag with spare shoes, that I can change into, with me.
9. My favorite shops are Zara, H&M, Vila, Etsy and Asos. I also love second hand shops and flea markets.
10. According to my boyfriend I'm not that patient. 11. I couldn't live without my calender.

My 11 questions I had to answer:

1. Do you like makeup? Of course!
2. What's the most precious thing you own? A true vintage black purse that used to be my mother's
3. What's your favorite place in the world? My boyfriend's arms & Helsinki
4. What's your dream job? I'm doing it!
5. Why did you start blogging? You can read the answer in my earlier blog post here
6. What makes you the happiest? Life, love and everything else
7. Where would you like to travel in the next holidays? New York & anywhere in Italy
8. What's your motto? There is a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.
9. What would you change about your life? Nothing.

11.What's your favorite food? Macaroni casserole made by my boyfriend!

What's your opinion?

  1. hey! congrats! I like those award posts since you can find out so much about other bloggers from all those answers and random facts.. so interesting to read! btw, I also watch ANTM, I always do! Masterchef is interesting as well but I probably have too many favourite tv shows anyway.
    oh and I read those two posts about your mint clothing and the outfit in your March 06 post is totally my cup of tea. the scarf, that sweater, those earrings, awesome!

    1. Thank you, I'm glad that you liked the post! And thank you for the compliments!


  2. Congrats on the award dear! Interesting facts, it was great learning more about you...I would love to only shop online but I'd like to know how do you determine the sizes and quality of fabric of the clothes? Also wish for an Alexa Mulberry bag. Your motto is wonderful and inspiring!

    1. Thank you dearest Sam!
      Well since most of the online stores have easy ways of returning orders (if they're the wrong size), I haven't had any problems with determining the size. Some shops I have been using for such a long time already that I know their sizing very well. Concerning the quality of the fabric, I always read carefully about the materials used for the clothes and that is how I determine the quality of them.

  4. Congratulations on the award
