The Liebster Award

It is the season of awards and the best awards are the ones we receive from our peers, the ones that relate to what we do, to what we love and to what is special to us!

Amongst bloggers there are several nominations and awards that what they lack in golden figures, they (more than) compensate in meaning. TheConfashionary nomination for the Liebster Award came from a fellow blogger – My Little Closet –  who kindly compliments and appreciates this window to my fashion landscape.  Thank you!


This award intends to promote new blogs and get other bloggers and followers to know the great work they have been doing. The rules are simple: upon nomination, the blogger must list 7-11 facts about his/herself, answer 7-11 questions given by the nominator, and come up with 7-11 questions for the 3-5 bloggers he/she nominates.
