Soooo, Lindsay from The LC Issue gave me an award (thank you very much :D), which I wanted to share with you all. You might think that Liebster is someone’s surname and they got a little bit vain with the naming of this award (you know, a bit like the Oscars….just me??), but “liebster” is actually German, and means “beloved” (can I hear you say “aaaww” hehe :P)
As Lindsay stated in her blog post about this, I genuinely hate re-spawning spammy stuff like this because it is so bloody irritating when you just see every single blog with the same stuff on it, but this was one that I really wanted to share.
Why Am I Sharing It Then?? Apparently the idea behind the award is share a little bit of love amongst us bloggers who have less than 200 followers, which is a really great idea, not only because I have less than 200 followers, but because there are so many blogs that i really love that have less than 200 followers, and I think so many people are really missing out by not following them 🙂
The Rules: As with most things in life, there are of course a few rules to the Liebster Award. You can’t just accept it and go “haha, in your face losers”, because this isn’t about receiving an award, it’s about sharing the love.
But, it’s okay, there aren’t many rules anyway:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment at their blog.
3. Post the Award on your blog.
4. Enjoy the love of some of the most supportive people on the Internet!
I AWARD YOU…
Blush, Pout and Pose.The first award goes to a blogger who has been alongside me pretty much from Day One of my blog. She was one of the first blogs I followed, and she introduced me to ELF which I am ever grateful for! B is also one of my Positive Beauty Pledger, so I am definitely more than thrilled to offer her the Liebster Award 😀
B blogs about…All things beauty-based 🙂
Lady From a Tramp. The Second award goes to a blogger who over the past few months has very much become my Partner-in-Crime. Next Saturday sees our second Northern Blogger Meet Up. The last one took place in Leeds back in August, and this one is taking place in Newcastle. Everyone is more than welcome, so if you live in or around Newcastle, please do join us, if you can 🙂
Katie blogs about… Fashion, Beauty and Lots in Between.
Alliebunni. Another Partner-in-Crime, but in a very different way, is Allie, who is my NaNoWriMo writing buddy (alongside my other half!) and having someone else who has the experience of doing it before, and is doing it alongside me, has been a great motivation (even if that motivation is in a predominantly competitive manner on my part ;P)
Allie blogs about… Beauty and writing
The Budget Beauty Book. Another Positive Beauty Pledger, Rosie is my not-related, not-the-same-age twin in that we share the same birthday (hurrah!!) and she is such a lovely person who everyone should be following, because she’s fab!
Rosie blogs about… All things beauty that is great for any budget
Big Beauty Blog. I’m always happy to find a fellow plus size blogger and Clare is certainly one of my favourites 🙂
Clare blogs about… Plus Size Fashion, and beauty.
Congrats to you all, and I am more than honoured to award each of you with the pretty badge 😛
