1. Link back to the person who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you
3. Pick 11 bloggers with about 200 followers to be nominated
4.Come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer
5. Notify your nominees
Here are the questions shared by Krystin along with my responses:
1. What do you love most about being a blogger?
I love the opportunity to share design ideas, style picks and beautiful spaces and events. 2. Would you rather travel around the world or live in the most glamorous apartment?
Hands down, travel around the world. 3. Favourite pastime besides blogging?
When I’m not online I love to spend time with family and friends, DIY, and cook/bake.
4. Favorite designer?
I can’t pick one! Depending on the item I have a different (or a few) go-to designers and labels.
5. Something unique about yourself?
I rowed during university and I’m a sucker for urban geography.
6. What is your dream job?
I’ve enjoyed all my experiences thus far for the opportunities all have provided to be creative and work on a team. Increased creativity and the chance to travel would be an exciting addition.
7. Best book you’ve ever read?
One of my favourite books would have to be Northanger Abby by Jane Austin. I used to read it every summer in my mix of books.
8. Something you’re currently coveting?
I’ve presently go my eye on some new furniture pieces for our home and one (or three) pairs of heels.
9. Your favorite trends?
When it comes to home and fashion trends, I tend to be fairly consistent. I’m a big fan of neutral tones and bold, minimal design with various textures. I enjoy a casual but put-together easiness when styling.
10. Something you love about your country?
There isn’t much that I don’t love about Canada. Some of my favourites include cottage weekends on a lake, the beautiful west coast, our (very defined) four seasons, home and of course… maple syrup!
11. Favourite fashion week?
I can’t pick just one 🙂
Here are some of my new favourite blogs that I nominate for the Liebster Award and to remark on the following set of questions:
