Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Liebster Award

So last week, I received the sweetest news from a dear friend, Christa and fellow blogger who blogs for Novelty Blog that she had nominated me for a Liebster award. I love her blog, it is everything mine is not, it's carefully crafted, witty and quirky so I was beyond honored to receive a nomination from her.

For those of you who don't know a Liebster Award is given to new bloggers with under 200 followers which I fit into quite perfectly as I just started blogging myself. Unfortunately, I can't nominate Christa again but I can nominate some wonderful bloggers I think you will enjoy.

I will be following Christa's rules, below:

  • Write a blog post accepting this award, while thanking and linking to the person that nominated you.
  • Write 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions written by the person who nominated you.
  • Write your own 11 questions
  • Tag 5-11 upcoming bloggers (I'll be tagging 2)
