An Award for ME?!

Good Saturday ladies!

I'm actually not having a too much of a great day?! BUT this cheered me up a little!
I was actually nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Ms. Kim over @ Happy Pretty Blog. I can't thank you enough !!! (I'm all smiles & having a fangirl moment!) 

The Liebster Blog Award is an award given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers, most of whom have less than 200 followers (or have been blogging for less than 6 months). It is to show newer bloggers that they are appreciated, and to help spread the word about new blogs. It was created to promote appreciation and recognition among the blog world. Liebster translates to “dearest” (or favorite/best) in German. It is also known as the Love Blog Award.

So, here are the rules for this award:

1. You must post 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
4. Choose 11 new blogs & link them in your post
