Hey guys! Happy Saturday.
So today HIDEORGOCHIC had the good fortune of being nominated for the Liebster Award! I feel so elated and incredibly honored! I was nominated by SarahsPreppyCloset, thank you Sarah for your kind consideration!
I’ve seen the Liebster Award badge on quite a few blogs, but I was unfamiliar about the particulars. As I understand it, it’s basically an award given to bloggers from other bloggers who admire your blog. You are nominated for the award, and you then pay-it-forward by nominating other blogs you admire -a concept which I absolutely love!
The Liebster Award recognizes blogs with 200 followers or fewer. If you’re nominated for a Liebster Award, you answer the questions from whoever nominated you. Then, you nominate a handful of other bloggers, and ask them a set of questions.
1) Why did you start blogging?
I’ve always been a huge fan of fashion! I love fashion make-over shows, reading fashion magazines, watching fashion runway shows and I love fashion blogs – I follow so many of them! Six months ago it occurred to me, why don’t I start my own! So I did, and I absolutely love it!
2) What is your dream job?
I think my dream job would be working for a fashion publication as a trend analyst, or as a visual merchandiser for either a fashion designer (Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors) or a major department store (Barney’s, Nieman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom).
3) What are you most terrified of (failing, bugs)?
I am deathly afraid of spiders! I keep having this reoccurring nightmare that while i’m sleeping they crawl into my ears and mouth! Creeps me out!!
4) What’s your go-to outfit on days where your running errands?
That would probably be a white tank top (or a fitted crew-neck t-shirt), a pair of skinny jeans and my gigi Sam Edelman sandals.
5) Health nut or not?
I am most definitely NOT a health nut! I love pizza, pasta and Edy’s slow churned caramel delight ice cream! But I’m really trying to change my eating habits and be more healthy. =)
6) Are you a perfectionist or a neat freak, or neither?
Sure, I would say i’m a perfectionist -particularly with my blog! I try to adhere to a posting schedule, I proofread countless times before posting and I like planning a head of time what i’m gonna blog about.
7) What’s your favorite store and do you shop there often?
I have not been there in a while, but my fave stores are Ann Taylor and LOFT. I’m a petite girl, so finding pants with the right inseam can be frustrating at times, but Ann Taylor/LOFT offers petite sizes (in both tops and bottoms) which I really appreciate!
8) Do you like Walmart or Target?
Don’t know why…but I’ve always preferred Target over Walmart!
9) Fill in the blank- I can’t live without my _______, and why?
I can’t live without my macbook! I shutter to think of how many hours on any given day I’ve logged on it! I’ll feel disconnected from the world without it, plus, it has taken the place of television for me (any and every tv show can be found online)!
10) Where is your dream vacation and why?
My dream vacation would easily be going to Italy! The rich art history, the italian food and don’t even get me started on the fashion! Versace, Cavalli, Gucci, Ferragamo, Dolce & Gabbana, I mean come on, Italy is the best place ever!
11) If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be and why?
If I could meet anyone it would be Tamara Mellon, who is the former chief creative officer and co-founder of the luxury accessories brand Jimmy Choo! I feel like she is a woman with tremendous business acumen, and I would love to pick her brain, she would be an amazing mentor -not to mention she has the biggest collection of shoes I’ve ever seen (love to raid her closet)!
