I've been nominated for a Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is an award that is by bloggers, for bloggers. It an award that is passed from blogger to blogger and is used to encourage networking, connection, and support within the blogging community. It can also be used to support new and upcoming bloggers and way to merge the veteran and new bloggers.
I have been nominated by the always fly and above reproach Satin Johnson aka Everyday Satchet! Now when your momma looks at you and names you Satin....being smooth, and fly is a must! Thanks boo!
Questions from Satin:
How would you define your style?
Classy with a scoop of Vixen! I love to beat my face and get dressed to the nines for a night out, but even if it's just lunch with the girls, everything that I wear must have a bit of sex siren in it. Nothing too overdone....I AM somebody's wife and mother, but I like to keep it sexy. I am curvy, and I like to show that off...there's no other way to say it
Who are your style icons?
Not sure I have any "style icons". I can get style inspiration from anybody....nobody gets it right all the time
What is a social issue that you are passionate about?
Oh boy....I am passionate about people's civil rights....period. Whether it be in the LGBT community, or in the Black community relating to police shootings, or the lack of resources in our communities. Nothing irritates me more than to see people overlooked based on someone's prejudice or preconceived ideas.
What is your favorite style trend this season?
Fringe....period. Fringe on shoes/boots, jackets, purses, dresses....I think fringe done correctly makes a definite statement. Also over the knee boots! I love that there are more styles for the wider calf, so that the curvy girls can enjoy this trend as well!
What is your niche for blogging? (i.e) – fashion, hair, DIY, social issues, everyday life, etc.
I am definitely a fashion blogger. However, because I draw fashion inspiration from everywhere, I like to highlight the everyday girl, the neighborhood boutique...the people that are being overlooked in my opinion. I think everybody deserves some shine! That's why I ask for submissions for style spotlights, and I want to start to do more posts where I go to boutiques and post about them as well. Everyone is so focused on the big brands, small business gets lost in the shuffle. I have also met some fabulous women entrepeneurs that I want to support and offer any resources (meager as they may be), to supporting and promoting them
What was it that made you want to start blogging?
I always say there is a certain level of narcissism associated with blogging. The idea that you think that you know enough about any given subject that people should listen to you regarding that topic. I think part of it was that I really think that I have a good sense of style, I love to shop, and take pics. It started as just something to do, but has evolved into something more for me. It's a real passion of mine now.
What is one of your goals as a blogger?
Well, I just started selling Curvy Fabulosity tee shirts....so I would love to see all the curvy girls rocking those! But seriously, I really want to put the Chicago plus size community on the map. I was told that Chicago doesn't really have anything going on in the plus size community, and I took that personally.
Are you into art?? If so who is your favorite artist? (Feel free to leave a link to their work)
I am digging the designs of Teresa FeFe Barrow, Exquisite Taste of Art. She not only does the classic paintings, but she paints, clothes shoes, makes really funky bags. She's dope, check her out here
What is your favorite social media site/app?
Right now, I am digging Instagram...it's easy! However, I am getting into Periscope as well.
Which blogger(s) do you admire the most?
I like lots....there were the bloggers that I followed prior to becoming a blogger, Naturally Fashionable, Everything Curvy and Chic, CurvEnvy, The Curvy Fashionista. But I have met some new bloggers, that are coming up with me, and they are pretty dope, and I want to see them win as well, Everyday Satchet (Satin), Big Bella Donna (Kareem), Oh Wize One (Laura), Simply Curvy (Ashley), FinesseCurves (Jeanne), My Simple Curvy Life (Ashley) and Balls of Beauty (Kisha)
