The Liebster Award! :-)

Liebster Award
Wohoooo!!! So... I was nominated for the Liebstar Award! :-) To be honest I had no clue what the award was for or about so I did my research haha. I started blogging about a month ago so I'm fairly new to this world. After looking it up I was so happy and grateful that two lovely ladies thought of me! theotherekta & aurelie-hispter thanks so much for the nominations! Now... there seems to be many ways to go about this nomination. This is more of a "chain letter" to help upcoming bloggers (200-250 or less followers) get known and I'm all for that! It's such a great idea and its awesome that we get to help one another!

So the lucky number is... 11! Here are the rules:
* You have to write 11 random facts about yourself
*Nominate 11 bloggers that you feel deserve it and have about 200-250 or less followers. (Leave a comment on their blog to let them know!)
*Answer the 11 questions the person that nominated you created and also create 11 new questions for the ones that are being nominated!
*Once you're nominated place the award on your blog and spread the love!<3
... Simple right?! (haha)
