Liebster Award!

Sorry for the late post! This was supposed to be up two days ago but the procrasination bug caught me :( 

I woke up this morning to find out I had been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely diana! Please go and check out her blog, she's such a lovely girl! This award definitely made my day and its been truly incredible. This is definitely a milestone in my blogging journey. Thank you to all my followers and here's to more new followers in the near future.

What is it?
Tbh, I found myself asking that when I found out I was nominated! Basically the Liebster Award honors bloggers who have 200 followers or less. Nobody really knows how it started but basically, bloggers nominate other bloggers for the award. Its a really cool acknowledgment for all the great unknown blogs out there. Liebster is german for favourite, so I guess it translates into 'Favourite Blog Award', which is pretty darn cool! So all the winners can put this award badge on their blogs. Everyone who receives has to play by the rules so that the award can be passed on to others. So lets get straight into it!

3. No smartphones or androids! Just your regular Nokia C-2 user :D

Questions from diana:

What's the one thing you want to do before you die? 
Watch the ball drop from times square live on NYE! Its always been a dream of mine to go to New York to witness the magic live, you just don't get the same feeling watching it on telly! I've never been there before, so its definitely on my bucket list!

Why did you decide to get into blogging? 
 I've had my blog for about 2 years but I really decided to get into blogging about one year ago. My sister is also a blogger so seeing her put together her outfits and document them really inspired me. I've always been in love with fashion and writing so blogging seemed like a perfect combination. 

What are your wardrobe staples? 
Wow, I've got a lot! I really love high waisted trousers, I've got loads and I can never do with more. I find high waisted trousers super comfortable and flattering for my figure. I also really love band tees! I've cut up most of mine to fit my petite body but they're great to dress up/ dress down and certainly make great conversation starters! Recently, I've been finding myself falling in love with circle skirts, I just love the way to swish around and they're incredibly flattering (highlighting the waist, skimming over the tummy!).

If you could go anywhere with anyone, who would you go with and where would you go? 
I am dying to visit LA again! The last time I went there, I was really little and I went with my family. I can't remember much from that trip but I really would love to go back there again. I would probably take either my best friend or my sister since we would do anything and everything there!

What is your favorite quote? 
I've got so many favourite quotes so this is just one from the many:

"The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you."- Lost in Translation

If you were only allowed to shop at one shop for the rest of your life, what shop would it be? 
I love lots of brands but I really love shopping in vintage/thrift stores. So if I could only every shop at one store, it would probably be a thrift store. I would love hunting for different pieces from different times and it would always be exciting leaving with a different outfit!

Who is your ultimate style icon. 
My mum. Without a doubt, my mum is my ultimate style icon. She pulls off every outfit with such class and she never fails to dress classy and sophisticated.

What trends are you most excited to rock this year? 
Emerald! Its one of my favourite colours so I'm excited to see it come out a lot this year. Definitely hunting for more emerald pieces to include in my ever bustling closet. I'm also excited to try out more beaded pieces. They add an aura of intrigue to an outfit and I really love tiny embellishments. 

Any guilty pleasures? 
Oh where do I begin.. I watch a lot of television and movies surprisingly. I'm always loading new episodes on my mac! I really enjoy watching Hart of Dixie with Rachel Bilson because I really love her style :D 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
Hopefully having just graduated from uni and working in a job! I would love to go into radio because its such an intriging industry. I interned in a radio station during summer and I absolutely loved it! I would also love to be working in the fashion industry possibly as an editor for a magazine.

What are some of your favourite band/recording artist?
I have too many favourite musicians! I guess my all time favourites would have to be Norah Jones, The Smiths, Calvin Harris, Muse, The Kooks, MGMT and The Virgins. Recently, I've been loving The Postal Service, Mike Snow, The Strokes and Best Coast.
