While I’ve never been a fan of “chain” correspondence (a part of me always worries, what if I really DO have 9 years of bad luck because I didn’t pass it on?!), I’ll happily make an exception for The Liebster Award. A peer-to-peer “award,” The Liebster is a way to give some recognition to newer bloggers and further unite the blogging community. Thank you to Aurea from Empty Rack for taking the time to nominate me! I feel very honored, indeed.

Here’s how it works:
  • Graciously Accept: Introduce and link the blogger who nominated you (see above)
  • Satisfy Curiosity: Answer the 11 questions from that blogger (see below)
  • Share More Details: Post 11 additional fun facts about yourself (see further below)
  • Spread the Love: Tag other blogs who deserve recognition and post 11 questions for them to answer (see furthest below)

11 Questions for Me from Empty Rack:

  1. Mulberry Alexa Satchel or Proenza Schouler Satchels? Proenza! I dream of PS1s…
