a little award: Liebster Blog

I've seen this award floating around the blogging world and I am happy that Kirsten from whiskey.tango.foxtrot decided to bless me with this award! The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming blogs who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Not only am I supporter or up and coming blogs, but I love to share with others my favorite ones! It's good to support bloggers that are trying to find their little niche in this blogging world. At times its hard because you compare yourself to those with 343454564567 followers, but it's never about numbers :] Ever. So all of you remember that.

How does it work?
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

So thank you again to Kirsten for this lovely blog award! I want to pass it along to a handful of bloggers that I've loved and adored for quite a while now. I try to spread the love to bloggers I haven't awarded yet and instead of just naming yet, I want to share a little description of why.

1. Melissa from My Soul in the Sky
Not only does she have a rockin' name *wink*, she is stylish, has great hair tutorials, takes beautiful pictures, is ultra sweet and has great recipes. I think I ran across her blog via Gentri (man, she comes up a lot in my posts, hehe) and I'm so happy I did! I always look forward to what she's posting next because she's just ultra stylish and adorable. Oh, and her husband and her are the absolute cutest. Okay, I'll stop being like a complete stalker now. So glad I have met you girl! Seriously. Let's be blogging friends forever!

2. Lauren from Tastes Like Love

Lauren is SUPER sweet! We're sponsors for one another, so it feels kind of nice to showcase her a little on my blog :) She has a great post series on her blog called "Start your week off with..." that features posts from other bloggers she recommends. (She has showcased me a couple of times here and here . I told you she was sweet!) She has does she pretty sweet illustrations. I want one of me so bad! (hint, hint) Just kidding :) But you should check out her blog because it's just crazy if you don't.

3. LauraJane from Little Miss LJ

I am SUPER lucky to have met this wonderful lady through packpage pals. You can see what we gave each other here. She's was the perfect person to exchange packages with :) I got some sa-weet things from California! Her blog is filled with make-up tutorials, cute outfits, YUMMY food and just overall cuteness. I wish I could meet her in real life. I feel like we would be the bestestest friends! I'm going to hire her one day to do my make-up and bake me yummy stuff on the daily :) Can't wait to meet you in person! California, here I come!
4. Megan from ASULike It
Not only do I know Megan in real life so I know that she's just a fabulous person, the concept behind her blog ASULike It is brilliant! She captures the fashion of men and women on the campus of our school, Appalachian State University, through her lens. It's wonderful because you get to see a bit of real life college fashion on the streets of Boone. She even featured me once here and I feel so dang honored! Megan however is one of the most fashionable people I know! I'm going to feature her on here one day because she's also a great model ;) Check out her blog now!

5. Amber from The Owl's Den
She's crafty, cute, an entrepreneur and knows how to find some great vintage things! Seriously. I would totally want her to come with me thrifting because she finds the best stuff. She also has a cute etsy store named Craft'n Bettie that's affordable, cute and fun! I've had my eyes on a few things. I want her to bring back the glasses necklace! (Hint, hint amber!) Anyway, I'm glad the blogging world has brought us together! I hope your etsy shop has extreme success and we can go thrifting together!

There you have it kids! The Liebster award. I went into a little more detail than most, but I just wanted to feature some great bloggers :) Hope you check them out and pass along the award (if you want to). Love you all!
