I was nominated for a Liebster award by Namreen from Life and times of the Fireflies . It always makes my day when I know that people actually take the time to read my blog. So much love to Namreen (Namu) for nominating me. This award is for up and coming bloggers to get acquainted with other bloggers, creating exposure for themselves and their fellow blogger buddies.
Rules of Liebster:
The blog you nominate must have less than 200 followers. The person who nominates you gives you 10 questions which you must answer. You then nominate 10 Bloggers (no tag backs) , and set 10 questions for them to answer. Tag the bloggers that you chose in your post.
These were the questions set for me by Namu :
What inspired you to start blogging?
As I got older fashion became more than brands to me, it became a passion. I started my blog two years ago (It was initially called Tips and Trends), but I changed it to Style By Shaheeda when I moved over to WordPress. My blog was my outlet to express myself and my fashion likes and dislikes. I was once a shy introverted person, I feel my blog has also helped my confidence a lot. It started with my friends liking it, but now I get compliments from people I haven’t seen in a while and that makes me feel amazing.
What is your favourite book?
I have read countless books, some I can’t even remember the names of. I enjoy books by Indian/Arab authors as I feel I relate to them. If something has to stick out for me it has to be Desperate in Dubai(Author-Ameera Al Hakawati) this book started of as a blog but was then published. I have been enthralled by Arab culture since the first time I visited Dubai. Most of their lives seem like every girls dream- shop all day! This book gave me an insight into their culture albeit fiction it was really an eye opener.
Best childhood memory…
Spending time with my cousins at my grandparents house over every school holiday…getting upto all sorts of mischief. There were lots of tears, giggles and learning experiences.
What is your ideal holiday destination?
New York!!!…. So cosmopolitan, and just my kind of place. And I’m lucky enough to be visiting New York in January 2014.
I would also like to do Euro Trip someday.
Your favourite t.v programme is…
Oh I’m such a series addict I can’t choose just one. A few that stick out for me : Revenge, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries…the list goes on and on. I love watching different genres. Escape reality for 40 minutes at a time, be it watching vampires or street savvy New York dwellers.
What is your most favourite blog post that you have written?
I love doing trend posts, one of my favourite was the very recent Summer in the Hamptons Look post incorporating current spring trends. It’s my favourite because spring is my favourite season.
Horror? Comedy? Action? Thriller? Romcom?
RomCom is my ultimate favourite. I can spend a day watching Hallmark feel good movies , just for all the happily ever afters.
What is your favourite thing to blog about?
Fashion and beauty. Fashion is my passion, and I see make up as an art.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to get rid of my dark under eye circles (which I blog about often), and stretch marks and a few scars on my face. I know nobody is perfect but if I could well why not 😉
What is your favourite fragrance?
I love soft Sweet fragrances , my ultimate favourite at the moment is Prada Candy. The scent is amazing and the bottle is gorgeous.
