Spread the Love

I was checking my Instagram account and redsolesandsequins commented on one of my pictures that I got nominated for the Liebster Award.

The word ‘Liebster’ rang a bell since it’s a German word and I’m German. The word has several definitions like beloved, lovely, dearest.  

The award only exists online and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The whole purpose behind the award is to help newcomers like me to spread their blog and get recognition. In my opinion it’s a really nice opportunity to get our blogs out to the blogger community.

Here is a little info on Red Soles and Sequins she has a lifestyle blog where she writes about traveling, fashion and her adventures. Her website has a good structure, looks professional and bold. Her blog is inspiring and I love her sense of fashion. I recommend stopping by her blog it’s worth your time.

Questions from Red Soles & Sequins

1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

I don’t really care too much about where I live as long as it’s a big city and the ocean is close by. It’s more important to have people around who love me and whom I love.

2. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I’m in love with cheese. So I would eat all kinds of cheese I guess.

3. Where do you go or what do you do to get creative inspiration?

I usually go to my husband to get inspired, he has a really creative mind and always comes up with awesome ideas what we can do for my blog. Besides that I like to look at other fashion blogger’s Instagram profiles or blogs to get inspired.

4. What motivated you to start blogging?

My undeniable passion for fashion. I love the way that clothes make you feel and I especially love the message they can send without speaking a word.

5. How did you come up with your blog name?

Actually my husband came up with the name. We where thinking about a name for my blog and I wanted something that is bold and still describes who I am. That is basically the story of how German Blondy was born. 

6. If you had a year off, with pay, what would you do?

I would travel the world with my husband. I love visiting new places, seeing different cultures and trying their food.

7. What makes you laugh?

I’m German. It’s tough to make us laugh but I usually laugh at my own jokes, which are sort of mean.

8. All time favorite movie?

My all time favorite movie is the Notebook. I feel that I found a love like that.

9. What’s your go to inspirational quote?

My go to inspirational quote is: “If you think it’s to much, it’s just right”. 

10. If you could give advice to your younger self what would it be?

I don’t regret anything that I did in my life. The only thing I would probably tell my younger self is drink less beer.

My 10 questions for you:

  1. If you were alone on a deserted island, what 3 items would you want to have with you?
  2. What is your favorite meal?
  3. f you could meet any famous person (alive or dead), who would it be?
  4. Cat or dog?
