Hi, my lovely peeps… I have some great news… 🙂
My blog www.selluence.com has been nominated for the 2017 Liebster Award. YAY !!!
I still remember starting this blog almost 3 months ago, and I am so so happy to be nominated.
A huge shout out to Brooke Briannaa for nominating me for this award. You can read her blog which has everything from fashion to her work in marketing.
WHAT IS THE LIEBSTER AWARD?
The Liebster Award was started in 2011 as an initiative for small bloggers to grow. Through this award, many bloggers get to connect, read and support new blogs that have not been noticed yet. It is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
ABOUT MY FAVORITE BLOG
My favorite blog is The Skinny Confidential by Lauryn Evarts. Like or love is a small word, but I am enamored by that blog. Lauryn started that blog in 2012 with a goal to create healthy eating alternatives. Later that blog grew into a fitness and health blog and since last 2 years, it has beautifully transformed into a lifestyle and wellness blog and brand.
Lauryn launched a book, a youtube channel, and a podcast all through The Skinny Confidential. The thing that makes The Skinny Confidential stand out and make me read it every day is the sassy, straightforward, no-nonsense content about everything.
The Skinny Confidential features tips and tricks on health, food, staying fit, decor, travel, and advice on cosmetic industry, relationships, and business. One can see all of that not just on the blog here, but also on her Instagram all day.
Another major reason for me to follow The Skinny Confidential is because of the products. The products that Lauryn advertises or sells are extremely economical. The blog keeps a great balance in providing buying options that are suitable to all and not heavy on budget.
