Liebster Blog

My friend Ashley from Any Lovely Thing sent me a Liebster award! Whoa Mama that's sweet! Wait.... what is that? Miss Ashley did her research and from her Yoda like brain she has informed me that Liebster is a German word for "favorite" and this award is meant to recognize your favorite blogs that have less than 200 followers.

I was pretty flattered especially since I have not spent much time on my blog until probably around a couple weeks ago. I am taking my time with my blog to make sure that it is going in the right direction and is depicting who I am in the best light.  So for one of my dearest friends to send me an award is like getting an unexpected hug from someone you weren't planning on seeing that day. Thanks Miss Ashley! I Lovett! :)

When you receive the Liebster award, you are supposed to do the following:
  • Post the award on your blog
  • Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award (by linking back to her/him)
  • Choose five up-and-coming blogs, that have less than 200 followers
  • List those five blogs you gave the award to, with links to their sites, and make sure they know that they were nominated (so that they can continue spreading the award), via commenting on their blog, Facebook or Twitter
My Liebster Blog award winners are...

Any Lovely Thing:

I didn't select Ashley for this award just because she selected me. I truly adore Ashley's blog and she is the one who got me into blogging in the first place. I love when Ashley posts about events that she hosts at her wonderful home even the ones that I am not able to attend. Ashley is becoming a pretty fantastic photographer and it shows from her post about her trip to London her and her boyfriend  recently took.  Ashley also posts a lot of great recipes and is a vision in front of the camera. Her posts about the outfits she picks out for work makes me want to stop sleeping in as much as I do every morning and actually put myself together!

deliciously yours:

I am a fan of Laura from deliciously yours. She has the cutest style. She wears a lot of vintage and vintage inspired pieces. I love how with every outfit she posts you just know that she feels comfortable in it and truly is something that she would rock in her day to day life. Kudos to you Laura you have funtastic style you vintage queen!

Draw me closer to Where you are:

Ellie is a student studying in London. She posts about projects she is working on. The way Ellie posts is unique. She will have an image or a video and below it she will describe the post in a form of a poem. She will also provide a quote from the bible to better depict the message she is trying to get across. She's very vague when describing who she is I imagine she lets the image and her writing be her voice. She's very intriguing and a bit of a wonder.

Well... that's it!

I know, I know that's not five blogs but here's the thing. I am still fairly new to blogging and a lot of the blogs I normally follow have more than 200 followers. Instead of being disingenuous and searching for blogs out of desperation and pretending that I follow them I figured I give a shot out to blogs that I do follow and enjoy. So that's my pick three winners for my Liebster blog award list!



  1. Thanks so much Mae! So sweet of you!

  2. Oh wow, Mae! Thank you so much. You are one of my dearest darling friends.
