TESSfully Nominated

Surprise-surprise, Mademoiselle TESS is one month old today. Well, one month young, to be precise. (And instead of getting older, she will just get TESSier from month to month). It also turned out, that exactly today TESS's blog was nominated for the Liebster Award. Such a wonderful gift! The great news came from Mezay Ugbo, a fashion enthusiast and designer from southern India. (Thank you so much, Mezay! You made my one-month-birthday DAY!)
The peculiarity of the Liebster Award is that it is given to new and upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers. The award aims to recognize the work they do, as well as to promote and support new bloggers. 

The Liebster Award is built around number 11 (don't ask me why) with the following rules:
1. Answer 11 questions that the tagger shared with you,
2. Create 11 questions for the people you want to nominate,
3. Choose 11 people and link them to your post,
4. Go to their pages and tell them,
5. Don't accept any tags back!

So, here is the list of 11 questions, what I was set for:

TESS  #1: If you had to live in a decade other than the current one, which would you choose?

TESS  #2: What are you currently obsessing over (TV show, movie, product, piece of clothing, etc)?

TESS  #3: What is the most recent thing you learnt?

TESS  #4: A pet peeve.

TESS  #5What is your fav color?

TESS  #6: Who is your favorite fashion designer?

TESS  #7: Who/what is your style inspiration?

TESS  #8: Which celebrity's closet would you love to raid?

TESS  #9: One thing you like about yourself and one thing you would like to pass.

TESS  #10: Why did you start blogging and what do you hope to achieve through it?

TESS  #11: What do you see yourself doing in 5 years?

So, here are my 11 nominees - wonderful fashion bloggers who I was lucky enough to meet: 
Fashionize The World 
Le Garçon in Stripes 
A Rare Commodity 
Dry-Clean Only 
U Better Work! 
Unfound Style
2 in da house
Blush & Gold
pash journal

And, here goes the list of my TESSful questions for the nominees:

1. Who is the most admired person for you in the fashion business?
2. Who would you cast to play yourself in a movie about your life?
3. What was the most embarrassing moment in your life?
4. What don't you mind spending a lot of money on?
5. How would you describe yourself in a tweet?
6. What does your perfect day involve?
7. What is your most hated brand?
8. What is the last book you read?
9. What is your biggest regret?
10. What brand would you be?
11. What inspires you to blog?

And, please, don't forget to share the links to your posts - I would love to read your answers as well:)
