Liebster Award

Hello there, I hope your month has started off well. A few weeks ago I received a nomination of the Liebstar Blog Award from Eugenia, the lovely blogger of Style with Ezil. Before I was able to put up a post of gratitude for the award and nomination of other amazing bloggers, I received yet another nomination a few days ago from Zarrah a gorgeous blogger of The Band Wagon Chic. I am extremely pleased by these nominations and I am overwhelmed with pleasure as this indicates that my web diary of personal style, outfits, fashion, beauty and DIY is being appreciated. Since I received two consecutive nominations, I will answer all the questions asked by both bloggers in order…i.e 10 from Eugenia and 11 from Zarrah. You should have a look at their blogs, they are wonderful! :-)
