So after only having my blog for a couple of weeks I am touched to have been nominated for TWO Liebster Blog Awards, one from Selinah at MissFashion1994 and one nomination from Lili at Lili-Rose212. Basically those nominated for the award are up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and the award is a way for them to get a little more exposure!
*Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
*They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
*They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
*They must then choose up to 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers.
*These lucky bloggers must be notified.
*There are no tag backs.
