Starting a personal style blog has always been a dream of mine. I truly love it, and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams. I just recently started my blog, and I have been so excited to work with different people and make new blogger friends. Lulu Soler of Simply Lulu Style nominated me for the Liebster Award. This award goes to new or upcoming bloggers trying to establish their site or just meet new bloggers! The most important part of this award is passing it on to other bloggers, and then having them pass it on! After all, it is the time for giving!

If you receive this award, there are a few rules that you must follow:  
1.  Each blogger nominated must post 11 things about themselves.  
2.  Then answer the 11 questions the tagger has asked.
3.  Create 11 questions of their own to ask the bloggers they nominate
4.  Choose 11 nominees with less than 200 followers and link them on their blog post
5.  Finally the bloggers must be notified of their award.
*And there are no tag backs.
