Hi there all and happy Friday! I got quite an exciting thing to share with you all today! I got a Liebster Award. Which is an award for bloggers from bloggers. What it is an award to recognize bloggers or welcome new bloggers into the world of blogging. Yay! How cool?! It is only on the internet. But, still it is a great way for others to discover new blogs, even ones that have been around for a bit. It is all about sharing the lurve.
How it works
post the award to your bloggeroo. Then Thank the person who gave you the Award. I would like to thank the lovely Delilah from Pumps and Studs for my nomination. Check out her blog she has awesome style and it is a great blog to read! Thanks girl!!!!! 🙂
Ok so then you have to answer the 11 questions from the nominator(I read that in Arnold’s voice.) Then you nominate 5-11 other bloggers as well as giving them questions to answer.
So here are my answers to the questions Delilah from Pumps and Studs had for me.
1. How did you decide on your blog’s name?
Well, this is something I talked about a teeny bit here, but will touch on it again. My blog’s name Go Fashion Deals. Well, it was picked out without really thinking about it. And as I have worked on it over the years and really in the past 2 years honing my blog. I realized the name wasn’t what I really wanted. When I started blogging, I really didn’t know what “blogging” was. I wanted to blog about fashion but for the life of me could not pick a name. So I just basically threw out go fashion deals. And that is what the blog came to be. A name I still question. Wish it was something cooler sounding like Elvish oracle(I am a nerd.) or something neato like that. (wouldn’t that name look cool on a pair of shoes?) Anyways, here we are. I mean if you think about it, I am always on the GO. Never sit still. And I do love fashion and finding a great sale. Thanks Molly for giving me that perspective and I appreciate it!
2. With Regards to your blog what is your favorite blog post or look?
Well, it would have to be a Pinterest inspired outfit, basically a copy cat or dupe of an outfit worn by Miranda Kerr. I loved that dress she was wearing when I saw it on the pin so I started to look for a similar dress.I found it and it didn’t break the bank at all. You can see that blog post here. To date it is a favorite of all time, I worked really hard on that.
3. Have you done something which pushed you outfit of your comfort zone lately? If so what?
Well, first off is one mommy related. I had to handle a injury of a tiny child’s nail and uh. Let’s say I have been developing a stronger stomach. GO SUPER MOM! The second is being more on instagram, I look at other bloggers instagram accounts and think wow. And then go meh, does anyone REALLY want to see my peanut butter sammich? I am getting more confidence there, follow my IG! hahaha.
4. Heels or Flats?
Both. Both is good. Actually I prefer heels but lately have been gravitation to flats. ALDO makes some great flats.
5. How do you motivate yourself to blog regularly?
I want my blog to be something special, and love sharing my outfits and great fashion/beauty hauls or sales. I love blogging. I am addicted.
6. What is a common misconception about blogging?
Being a fashion blogger, it would have to be getting a butt ton of free clothes. Or something like that. Which is NOT the case. I buy EVERYTHING as do many bloggers. Now that doesn’t mean I would not mind getting some free clothes, who wouldn’t. But, bloggers have to work hard to get that kind of collaboration and sponsorships run the same. People tend to think that bloggers or youtubers make huge amounts of money and that is why we blog or vlog.
7 Instagram, Pinterest, FB, or Twitter? WHy?
OHHH, I have a bad habit of neglecting social media. #workingonit But, I would have to say my number one is PINTEREST! AHHHHH I am addicted. Instagram is next. Twitter I still lurve you.
8. If you could live in another country where would it be?
9. What is the best thing anyone has ever said about your blog?
That it is amazing and inspiring! Really love each an every comment I get on my blog. You comment I comment back and visit your blog. I try to leave comments to if I can. Some blogs I can’t because I don’t have the right account or something. Logging in stuff. But I do read them! Share the love.
10. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I am an introvert. Hard to believe, but it is true. Introvert all the way.
And that isn’t a bad thing.
11. What is my go to comfort food?
Anything Thanksgiving table related or Christmasy #handupforchristmas The food at that time of year is amazing and I love it. If I feel really down you will know it by the turkey in the oven, mashed potatos and gravy, stuffing, and other trimmings ready to be gobbled down and it isn’t Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is my go to when I need the comfort. is that weird?
OK So now I get to nominate some lovely bloggers for this award! As well as give questions. The thing is too, once you nominate be sure to comment on their blog and let them know. They can accept or decline in their own way. And yes you can be reselected. HAHAHA.
