Liebster Award & Share The Love!

To my delight, I have got a lovely surprise from The Other Ekta. I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!

I have heard of Liebster Award but I didn't quite know what that was. After reading her blog post, I basically gathered its background story.

The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers, essentially new bloggers by other bloggers. The name "Liebster" originates from German, meaning: Dearest; Sweetest, Kindest… The award helps bloggers connect with each other, make friends and help newbie bloggers get discovered.

It basically works as a chain mail, each nominee tags 11 new bloggers, and "and this keeps snowballing, resulting in a gigantic, fluffy snowball of bright-eyed writers who keep our community warm and fun. " (quote: Theotherekta, sorry, it is so cleverly written that I have to quote you :))

The nominee has to answer 11 questions asked by their Liebster fairy, and then he/she has to tag 11 new bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.

My answers to Ekta:

1. Who or what inspired you to write and share a part of your world online?
Little Bling Ring: I have always been interested in reading fashion blogs. My full time job as a fashion brand director means I get to know and work with a lot of fashion bloggers. By night, I transform into an independent blogger myself (although I try to keep it anonymous as I only want it to be a personal hobby) and I absolutely love it. It is like my secret garden where I escape for peace of mind.

2. You have time/patience for 1 make-up product. You grab…?
Little Bling Ring: My eyebrow pencil. I am not blessed with defined brows, as a matter of fact, my brows are so thin and scarce that a brow pencil is absolutely essential to me.

3. Favorite genre of books?
Little Bling Ring: Novels and self-help books.

4. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Little Bling Ring: kind of both. It depends who I'm with.

5. Favorite book or book series?
Little Bling Ring: shamelessly, Devil wears Prada. Haha!

6. How much water do you drink everyday? Honestly.
Little Bling Ring: about two glasses. I know.

7. Best gift you ever gave…
Little Bling Ring: a blue tooth speaker to my boyfriend. He absolutely loves it.

8. What or who makes you instantly happy?
Little Bling Ring: my boyfriend and my family. And what? Shopping!

9. Current style icon?
Little Bling Ring: I don't think I've got one particular icon. I do like Audrey Hepburn and olivia palermo's style.

10. On a scale from "Allergic" to "Rehab", how much do you love Nutella?
Little Bling Ring: I looooove Nutella! It's so addictive!

11. What is the meaning of life? (Sorry, I'm an overthinker, perpetually stuck in an existential crisis.)
Little Bling Ring: happiness, health and love.

I hope I've answered all your questions, Ekta. Now let's share the love. The following bloggers I tag please answer my 11 questions below.

1. What was the first blog post you wrote?
2. What's your favourite make-up / skincare brand and why?
3. What's your favourite high street brand and why?
4. Would you ever buy a designer rip-off /fake designer item?
5. How many shoes do you own? 1-10; 10-20; 20-30; 30+ pairs?
6. Have you made any friends through blogging (people you speak with and meet regularly in real life)?
7. If you win 1000 pounds/dollars, how would you spend it?
8. Where is your ultimate dream holiday destination?
9. Best present received?
