LIEBSTER AWARD!


Right after I woke up around 8 AM I took my phone and checked my messages and what a surprise: I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! Thank you so much DivawbigEGO Johnson
for that! I really appreciate it! I mean what can you say if you are blogging for not even a month and get nominated for an Award! Someone noticed me? (YOU FOR SURE DivawbigEGO Johnson)!


So, I had to google what the Liebster Award is. Funny thing is: I am German and the word "Liebster" is German. I see a lot of translations for this Award which are not really true. There is actually only 2 translations for "Liebster"- the 1st is how you can call your lover, similar to "Darling".  The 2nd translation is FAVORITE and I think this covers it more. Its like nominating your favorite blog. This is a blogger award for bloggers with less than 200 followers. It is intended to help the blogger go to the next level in blogging. We all help each other out because we introduce new bloggers to other bloggers. This Liebster Award can certainly not hurt you- it is the opposite: it will help you cause we all link to each other.


So, let me tell you a little bit about DivawbigEGO Johnson. She started her blog to share with others affordable deals for good quality cosmetics. She shows her readers that they can have the same look for half the price of high end cosmetics. She has a blog named EGO For A DIVA On A Budget!!!!!! She also has a YouTube channel DivawbigEGO Johnson. So check out her blog and YouTube channel.

So for the Award, here are the rules:
Step 1: Answer the 11 questions that I have asked
Step 2: Choose 11 more Bloggers (under 200 followers)
Step 3: Ask the new Bloggers (11) a set of 11 new questions
Step 4: Contact the 11 Bloggers and let them know they have been tagged.

Here are my answers to the questions I got:

1. Why did you start blogging?
Born and raised in Germany I found it extremely hard to find beauty samples in the US. In Germany it is pretty easy to get these. Most of the times you have some in your magazines (this happens in the US very rarely). But if you like some samples, you just go to to "douglas" (very similar to ULTA) and ask for samples. Other than here they treat you nice, are knowledgeable and give you samples. Also the size of samples are much bigger. So, when I finally googled all the samples you can get online, I decided to help others too, to get their free beauty items!

2. What is your favorite high-end product?
Giorgio Armani 'Luminous Silk' Foundation is my absolute favorite!
3. What is your favorite drugs store product?
I love everything from Loreal- especially Loreals Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss Lip gloss.
4. What do you do when your not blogging?
When I am not blogging, I like to read, go to the beach or swim with my son in the pool!
5. What makeup tip would you give for beginners?
A beginner should start with Mascara, some Lip gloss and a bronzer.

6. Which makeup brand is good for beginners?
Loreal for sure!
7. What is the one thing you would like to do before you die?
Travel the world!
8. What is the craziest thing you ever done?
Move from Germany to the US 7 years ago with my new born baby (and husband)!
9. Is there anything in your life you would go back and change...if so what and why?
Would not change a thing, baby!
10.What is that one thing that you think about that always put a smile on your face?
My son can not lie- he moves his lips in this way that I know right away that he is lying!
11. What are your future goals?
Life my beautiful life, appreciate everything around me!
