Nominated for a Liebster Award

I was the same with Brandi who nominated me for the Liebster Award, I had no clue as to what it actually was so I was pleased to see that she had written about the information on her post and I am just gonna *copy and paste* what she wrote so everyone understands properly - The Leibster Award has several variations around the Internet. One of the original posts from 2010 say that this award is for bloggers with under 3000 followers. The current says under 200.

There are rules to this award, so without further ado -
- Each person must post eleven things about themselves.
- Answer the eleven questions the tagger has set for you.
- Choose eleven people and tag them in this post.
- Follow the tagger and visit at least three nominees.

My 11 things :
1) I have always wanted to be a writer, whether that was writing books, journalist etc but as I got older I changed it to just  a journalist.
2) My lucky number is 22
3) I love reading
4) I love going to the cinema and just watching movies all day
5) I like going long walks
6) I really want to go to go travelling
7) I watch far too many TV shows
8) I really want to meet the Bondi Rescue Lifeguards :p haha
9) I am always on my laptop but it's broken at the moment so I am on my mum's computer until Septempter when I can buy one with my student loan cause I will obviously need it for college as well.
10) I enjoy reading up on celebrity gossip
11) Bubbly

Questions from that the nominees are to answer :

1) I like to do a mixture of fashion posts- latest fashion lines, celebrity fashion, shoes, summer/winter clothes etc. I know I don't post much about myself other than 'I love leopard print' but it's just the way I do my blog. I might start taking pictures and letting everyone see my style or do more posts about just clothes that are 'in' to get for winter soon but for now this is the way my blog is rather than just the one thing.
2) Reading, Watching TV Shows/Movies, being on my laptop, spending time with my best friend leanne and going SHOPPING!
3) Mascara and Foundation
4) Casual, Playful, Girly - I like a little bit of everything! I am not one of these people though that can wear something even if I don't suit it. I don't do a lot of floral stuff because of that reason because some of the designs of the flowers placed on dresses etc make you look bigger.
5) I have been blogging since last November and I really enjoy it!
6) Ah! Seriously..I have so many but I shall do a favourite classic/romance and up to date one though  to make it easy on myself haha, Favourite classic: The Goonies/ Romance: 27 dresses/ Up to date film: The Dark Knight Rises
7) I follow mostly fashion but I have a few that are different for just writing posts and sharing experiences, beauty blogs and photography, if anybody that I follow reads my post feel free to comment and let people know your URLs.
8) Journalist! It's my dream. It would be amazing if it was fashion, but even just celebrity or something slightly relating to that then it would be perfect.
9) bubbly, loud, friendly, hard worker, helpful
10) My mum's curry!
11) I would like to tell the world that I am hoping to make something of myself and I hope to one day get to travel to NYC(My favourite place) and secondly be something in the 'journalism' world.

My 11 Nominees :

I have to go off the guide lines for my last one(Sorry!!) I know she won't see it but Ashley Madekwe's blog is amazing and I love her in 'Revenge' right now so I must share her link-  (Make sure you follow her)

'' '' I’ve got nothing to lose, it’s a bit of fun. In this current era of celebrity no one believes you actually design the stuff anyway, even though I sketch everything myself.'So if it sucks I can say I had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good I can sayHere are the drawings, it’s all my own work!'

First look at Solange Knowles first major contract with Madewell

Pictures have just been released of Solange Knowles modelling for Madewell which is her first major contract. Solange is following in the footsteps of Dree Hemingway and Alexa Chung who have previously modelled for the label, though Alexa then went on to design her own clothes for the label. Solange recently moved to Brooklyn with her son to fit as her sister kept telling her over the years that it would be her 'kind of neighbourhood' and she would fit in with the style because she is such a Fashionista! In the pictures above she is wearing some bright colours and it definitely suits her. Solange is wearing polka-dots shorts, blouses stripey cardigan, denim jeans, leopard dolly shoes, printed skirts and T-shirts, hats and bright coloured dresses. It gives you the perfect feel of what is to come for Solange in the fashion world and it looks like it could just be the perfect career for her.

Madewell, which is J. Crew's sister store, first released behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot earlier this month which offered a hint at the wide range of polka dots, stripes and prints from its Fall 2012 collection.

Dorothy Perkins will be stocking the A/W 2012 Kardashian Kollection in stores this November.

Everyone knows 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' is mainly based on these three girls that have been in the media since 2007. Kourtney, Khloe and Kim have had their own perfumes, reality shows, supported charity campaigns, released books about their lives and about fashion. They opened their first fashion boutique in 2006 called D-A-S-H which is located in West Hollywood CA,  Miami Beach FL and SoHo, NY. It sells bras, clothing accessories, bags and purses and some are from celebrity labels for e.g. the 6126 Collection by Lindsay Lohan. Today it was announced that their A/W 2012 Kardashian Kollection will be coming to the UK in November and will be stocked in Dorothy Perkins. Khloe tweeted that she is excited to finally have a reason to come to the UK and meet her fans from over here. Bruno Schiavi, President of Jupi Corp. describes the A/W 2012 line as, “Kim’s glamorous red carpet looks, Kourtney’s more Bohemian chic, and Khloe’s edgier style.” I for one can't wait and will definitely be buying some of their clothing accessories even if it means going online but here's hoping I get it in the Dorothy Perkins closest to me.
