Empowered through the Liebster Award


What better way to start off the day with spreading some empowerment to my fellow fashion people! Everyone who blogs about fashion truly truly holds a special place in their heart for fashion. I love reading fellow fashion blog and seeing how their personality is projected through their style. I am empowered by their story and what made them decide to start this amazing journey!

So just recently  I was nominated for the Liebster Blogger Award. Completely ecstatic and totally unaware of what exactly the Liebster Award, I still feel so very honored the Talita from Talita Says nominated me for this award. For those who don’t know what the Liebster Award is, it is basically the blogging community supporting our fellow friends, This award is a symbol of spreading the blog love all around. It doesn’t have judges and there isn’t a physical award that you are given but the acknowledgement is empowering! .

I feel that the Liebster Award shows that another blogger took the time to read your post! The support that we get from fellow bloggers is a huge part of continuing to post and stay creative for our readers.
