The Liebster Award

Sed Bona Liebster AwardLast week Emily of The Fielding Report nominated Sed Bona for a Liebster Award (an award that celebrates small and growing blogs)!! I was honored to be nominated and love the idea of being a part of a community of other Liebster bloggers — if you click through the chain of nominations, you can find some pretty spectacular new blogs!

Without further ado, here are my answers to Emily’s award questions:

1. What blogs, magazines, or websites do you often look to for inspiration?

I am often inspired by the Coveteur, Food 52, and large bloggers like Atlantic Pacific, The Londoner and Gary Pepper Girl. I also use Bloglovin’ to follow my favorite bloggers (you can see who I’m following on my personal page here) so I get a lot of inspiration every morning when I check my inbox and read my Bloglovin’ feed. Pinterest always gives me great ideas too, especially for outfits!

2. What is your favorite social media platform? Who do you love following?

INSTAGRAM! I honestly, can’t say enough about how much I love the inspiring community on Instagram! It’s such an encouraging and positive space — I go there for energy and motivation to start my next projects! When I’m looking for serious inspiration, I love to visit EggCanvas, RosietheLondoner, LaPetiteAnglaise, FlatNoseDogSociety, Alinatsvor, CrazyStyleLove, _MarianneJacobsen_, MerrittBeck, and AliceGao.

3. Favorite shopping purchase from 2014?

This black velvet Givenchy ruffle skirt. It’s feminine but the zipper give it an edge, plus the velvet it the softest I’ve ever felt. And I got it for 80% off on Nordstrom Rack clearance!

4. Rank em’: shoes, jewelry, bags?

You can’t make rank them. You need every instrument to form a symphony.

Thank you so much Emily for the nomination! Be sure to check out her inspirational blog for some stellar interior design, style and advice!
