Award Winning

The Liebster Award

The wonderful Heather Noir from Bauchle Fashion recently nominated me to receive the Liebster Award (also known as the getting to know you award.) If you are unfamiliar with Bauchle Fashion, I suggest you checking out this amazing magazine blog Here. Heather not only offers fashion and beauty advice for women, but encompasses men’s trends as well. To see Heather’s original Award post click hereNow on to her questions:

What was the last thing you bought?
Groceries. I cook dinner during the week and make my husband’s lunches for work so I go grocery shopping one to two times a week. As far as clothing, my last purchase was a Kate Spade coat that I’ve wanted forever. I found it, new with tags, on a vintage clothing site. I still have yet to wear it in a blog post.

Favourite colour?
Pink. I would wear pink everyday if people wouldn’t look at me strangely.

Pub or Café?
Cafe. Especially if they have outside seating.
If you could have only one luxury handbag in the world, what would it be?
The Chanel Jewel Ladybug Limited Edition Black Classic Bag.
(no photo, but I wish I had one.)

Do you secretly have a sweet tooth?
Yes. I love gummy bears, blueberry scones, and muffins. I wouldn’t really say I keep that a secret, haha. This was today's breakfast.
What is your guilty pleasure song?
I can’t say I have one specific song. I do find myself singing Pharrell’s Happy song in the morning to my dog as she does this funny little dance when she wakes up. I call it her happy dance.
If you could be born in another era, what era would you pick?
The 1950’s. Life seemed so simple back then. Plus I love the fashion from that time, the Dior dresses are my favourite. I also love the kitchen decor and appliances from that era. I’d love to have one of those refrigerators with the rounded edges, and in the colour teal blue.

Do you ever feel like something just gets on your nerves? If so, what is it?
The only thing that really bothers me is when someone chews with their mouth open. Even on cooking shows at the end when the chef tastes their final creation. I just can’t stand that sound. My dog doesn't like the noise either, haha.
Are you all about trends?
No. There are a lot of trends that don’t look good on me. For instance culottes and sneakers. Then there are things that I’ve always loved like ruffles and colourful stripes that are now “in.”
Do you get paid for your posts if so how? 
This is a great question and I’ve had a few people ask me this. The answer is yes, but I make hardly anything. Today I probably made a dollar and spent hours writing and commenting. I have Adsense where I place ads along my posts and am paid by google. This is one of the reasons my husband says I need to quit blogging. But I really enjoy it, though I may take a break in the future.

What brand is played out and which is timeless?
Timeless of course is Chanel, and played out I would say Ralph Lauren. Mainly because their quality has been on a constant downhill slide for a while now, along with their stock. They used to be one of my husband’s favourite brands, but he’s noticed lots of changes in the past few years which haven’t been for the better.
So now that I've answered all of Heather's questions. 
Here is the list of questions that I've come up with for those bloggers that I nominate:

  • If you could live anywhere in the world where would that be?
  • What do you eat for breakfast?
  • What motivates you to be a blogger?
  • Where do you get the most work done?
  • Are you a cat person, a dog person, or neither?
  • What is your biggest fear?
  • If you could stay a certain age forever, what age would that be?
  • What is your favourite quote?
  • Do you work outside of blogging? If so what do you do?
  • What is your favourite pastime?
And here is my list of Nominees.
Now I know not all bloggers enjoy doing award posts. So if I’ve nominated you and you don't do award posts, I totally understand. I tried to choose those of you who I thought may enjoy it.

Ivana from Modaodaradosti
Lily from Beauty With Lily
Erin from Sexy Cardi
Meron from Fashion Style Mogul

Thank you again Heather Noir for nomiating me and thank you all for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Earning to blog is great, and a goal of mine but blogging for passion is still great, I have been doing it for almost 3 years and I never get tired to think of something new or post a new D.I.Y, since i do it almost all the time, why not share it with the world.
    Lovely post dear.

  12. Hello dear! I like this kind of articles because at the end more than bloggers we're humans! We have hobbies, fears, guilty pleasures, etc.! Loved to know a little more about the girl behind The Fashion Salt :D

    I really loved your dog! Looks super adorable! And well when it comes to timeless I do agree on Chanel ;)

    Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  13. Why would your husband tell you to stop blogging? Because Google pays you?

    1. He says that because Google hardly pays me anything for all the time I put into it. I'm on the computer a lot and not really "present" when we're watching TV or a movie. I am going to take a break soon because I have family coming to visit and it will probably be impossible to post and comment when my niece and nephew are here wanting to play all the time :)

Those and the shapes of other ~new~ technology like microwaves and televisions would be so fantastic to have. I'm a little surprised you would go with teal over pink, though ;)

  23. Absolutely love this series! What a great idea. :) And NOOO please don't quit blogging! There are many other ways of making money on your posts, and it takes a little bit of time and orientation, but you can make it work ultimately. When I started I didn't think I'd be making money either, but I wouldn't learn everything I did about running a business if I cut out of the game when it wasn't working. I just changed my strategy. :)

  26. This was such a great read, Lili, I loved getting to know you more through this post! I make dinner every night and pack lunch for the hubby, too! Surprisingly, he's the only one who brings lunch! I don't understand how someone can pay $11 for a salad everyday when you can make one at home! I love your new jacket, so chic and that hanger is so lovely, too! How cute is your dog, omg, look at that face! I have a major sweet tooth and I crave baked good once in a while, now I'm craving a scone, haha. Have you ever tried applying to RewardStyle or ShopStyle affiliates you can possibly earn more for the links you share, you should check them out! I hope you have a great weekend and congrats on being nominated!

    1. Packing lunch does save so much. When I was working full time I would end up spending $25 or so a day just on food (coffee, scone, sushi, ect.) it's insane how much I wasted. And thank you for those affiliate links, I'll check them out :)

  73. My husband used to tell me to stop blogging too but when recently I've considered stopping blogging he told me I was crazy to give up on something I invested a lot of time into...Man! Whatever you do, there is no pleasing them:). I think they just enjoy telling us what to do.

    It was very interesting to read your post. Your dog is so cute....Thank you for your nomination, I only saw it now. I might answer questions in my next post. Have a lovely day! Enjoy time with your family. I don't do much blogging either when I visit my family because usually when I go there I babysit my nephew and niece a lot.
