we've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Little Beauty Lashes, and may we mention how much of an honor that is?
A small blurb on what a Liebster Blog Award is:
Well, we don't really know. We tried googling the origins and rules and it turns out there aren't many. You kind of decide it on your own. Also, it really isn't an award, but just a chance for blogs to expand their readership by tagging other blogs and making connections.
It works a bit like a tag, like the 50 questions we did last time. So basically, what we will do is:
1) answer 11 facts about ourselves
2) answer 11 questions asked by the nominator of this award
3) nominate up to 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 members on GFC)
4) ask them 11 questions and inform them of their nomination
It's as easy as that. So shall we get started? :)
First up, Ash and I decided that we will divide the questions up. That means, I, Sam, will be answering the 11 facts about myself and Ash will answer the 11 questions asked by Little Beauty Lashes.
