LC’s Closet Liebster Award

March 22, 2013


I have been lucky enough to be nominated twice for the Liebster Blog Award by Mak from Beautiful Freaks and Olivia from Friday Night Style. The Liebster Award is basically an award granted to up and coming bloggers with fewer than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging. So I would like to thank Mak and Olivia very much for nominating me. I was really happy to be nominated as it means that people actually read and enjoy my blog.
For those of you who don’t know how the award works, here are the rules:
1. Share 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions that your tagger gave you.
3. Choose 11 fellow blogs to nominate. The nominees must have less than 200 Google Friend Connect Followers and be told via comment on their blog.
4. Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated.
5.Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.
11 Things About Me: 
1. I am 5 Ft 7in and have green eyes.
2. I am 100% Irish.
3. I am in the final stages of studying for my Ph.D in Fashion Marketing and Branding
4. When I first meet a person I am very shy, once I get to them I do not shut up.
5. When I was younger I really wanted to be a professional tennis player (I still kinda do 🙂 ).
6. I carry a bottle of water with me everywhere I go.
7. I love chocolate and have to have some everyday.
8. I’ve always wanted to travel the world and hope to when I finish my Ph.D.
9. I am from a really large family. I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters.
10. I feel like I am not fully dressed if I am not wearing earrings.
11. I always wear sunglasses, no matter what the weather. 🙂

Mak’s Questions:
1. What is your favorite colour and why?
I don’t really have one specific favourite colour. I love colour, especially in my clothes. I think it is because I used to wear a lot of black of dresses and wanted to move away from that completely so I wear every colour. For some reason I am always drawn to green, especially with sweets. I also love purples and deep blues and have always been told that I red is my colour.
2. If you were stranded on an island and could bring 3 things, what would they be?
I would bring a hoodie because I hate being cold, matches to light a fire and drinking water as I always carry water with me.
3. What is your favourite song currently?
Bastille Pompeii… I LOVE it! I’m also loving Justin Timberlake Mirrors and Taylor Swift 22!!
4. Why do you love blogging?
I love blogging as it allows me to express myself and experiment more with what I wear. It also gives me a small release from the stress of my Ph.D and keeps me motivated to progress with both my Ph.D and my blog.
5. Are you a night owl?
Yes!! I am definitely a night owl. I am never in bed before 12 and when I do eventually go to bed, I usually spend at least half an hour surfing the internet.
6. What is your favourite movie that has come out in the past year?
This really is not a good question for me as I haven’t been to the cinema in aaaaaaages and really can’t remember what recent movies I have seen.
7. List 5 words that describe you?
Dynamic, ambitious, sincere, cheerful, sensitive.
8. What’s your least favorite fashion trend right now?
Definitely peplum. Everybody has been wearing peplum recently and you always hear that peplum suits everyone but I really don’t agree with this. I think it only makes people look bigger than they are.
9. Do you look at the glass half full or half empty?
Definitely half full. I always try to look for the positives in every situation.
10. How many times have you said “I love you” today?
Once… when I read out this question! 🙂
11. What’s your favourite book?
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I love old books like this that you can really lose yourself in.
I Nominate:
1. This Crazy Love
My 11 Questions:
1. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
2. Where is your favourite place in the world?
3. What is your favourite season?
4. What do you like most about blogging?
5. What is your most cherished item of clothing?
6. What made you start your blog?
7. If your house caught fire, what would be the first object you would grab and why?
8. Who is your style icon?
9. What is your favourite quote?
10. What is the worst item of clothing you have ever purchased?
11. What is the one thing you cannot live without?
Thanks again to Mak and Olivia for nominating me. To the people that I nominated, please be sure to let me know your answers if you decide to claim your award. I can’t wait to see your answers.
Lorna. 🙂 xx

    I always wear earrings too! It`s a necessity. I feel really awkward when I have to take them off for badminton or something!

      Ha… totally agree! On the rare occasion I forget to put on some I feel naked!

        That and nail polish. You know how ladies in the fifties wouldn`t be caught dead without a nice dress and some pearls? That`s me and a manicure.

    I just noticed this, but it bothers me. This award is for new bloggers! You have a lot of followers, and so do all of your nominees!

      The award is for up and coming bloggers with less than 200 blog followers. I have only been blogging since the end of November so I would still consider myself very new to it and my following on my blog is quite a bit less than 200. I also think all of my nominees have less than 200 followers but maybe I made a mistake?! Having less than 200 followers is a requirement. 🙂

        I don`t know anymore. I see blogs get the award with two thousand followers and some with ten. I see it all over the place, so it definitely isn`t just you, unless I was wrong and you didn`t do that at all. I just don`t know anymore! I think I`m just a fussy person 🙂
