I am so ecstatic to have been nominated for The Liebster Award. Many Many thanks to the two amazing fellow bloggers Srestha and Safi for nominating me. I truly appreciate that you like my blog. Let me tell you a bit about Liebster Award. It’s an award given from one blogger to another blogger and is a great way to recognize new blogs and promote them. There are some rules which you need to follow to win this award. After thanking the people who nominated you, you need to answer the questions provided by those bloggers who have nominated you.
About Me: I have been blogging since January’16 and it’s been a five good months since I have launched my blog The Instyle Journal and it’s really an honor to get nominated for this award. I am very excited that I got noticed by the bloggers community. I had never ever thought in my wildest dreams that within a span of three to four months, my blog will get so much acceptance from the readers community. Rather, blogging was never on my mind. I use to travel a lot and it just happened one day that I decided to pen down my experiences and since then, there was no looking back. I love this very fact that this blog is a place where I can put my thoughts into words without abiding by any rules. And I really appreciate all of you who take out time to read my blog.
So, here I am going to answer the questions assigned to me by Srestha
1. What inspires you to write?
Travel inspires me to write. Discovering new places and people, discovering new cultures, taking photographs, and exploring the unexplored gives me the much needed inspiration. And writing about my experiences gives me a sense of satisfaction. Also, reading success stories of people keeps me going.
2. Who are your favorite bloggers, and why?
I’m a huge huge fan of Zoe Elizabeth Sugg/ Zoella from https://www.zoella.co.uk/because at such a young age, she is a very famous and an influential beauty blogger. Another blogger I absolutely adore is Lauren Conrad from laurenconrad.com/ who is a successful American television personality and a blogger.
3. What is one thing you could not live without, and why?
Not just one, rather there are three things I simply can’t live without – my parents, my husband and my blogging.
4. What book has most inspired you, and why?
The one book which has really inspired me a lot is – The Alchemist. I have read this one umpteen times, and I just can’t get enough of it. It just gives me the much needed boost. A story revolving around a young shepherd boy from Spain and his journey from Spain to Egypt. It’s a story about chasing one’s dreams and traveling and hence this is my favorite one. A most inspiring book which urges you to follow your dreams and your heart come what may.
5. What would a perfect weekend look like to you?
It would be somewhere at the beach. I am actually a beach baby, I love sunshine, sand and surf! It just gets me going!!!
6.What experiences have had the most profound effect on you?
I would like to skip this one.
7. What television or movie character do you most identify with?
One movie character with which I can really really identify is “Geet” from Jab We Met. I am just like her mad, crazy, insane, chirpy and talkative.
8. Where is your favorite place in the world, and why?
I visited Dubai sometime back and fell in Love with it. So, as of now, Dubai is my favorite place. Why? I have no reason except that it’s beyond beautiful.
9. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I have always wanted a platform where I can share my experiences and that became possible through blogging only. The thing I like best about blogging has been getting to know other bloggers and having the opportunity to meet them and exchange experiences.
10. What is the biggest risk you have taken, and did it pay off?
My decision to continue blogging alongside my full time job was a big decision for me and yes people, it’s paying off and now I have decided to take my blogging to the next level by making it full time very soon.
11. What is your drink of choice?
I love Mountain Dew– Because Darr ke aage jeet hai. Jokes apart, but I seriously love Mountain Dew 😆
