Well hello from over the moon everyone. I am so humbled and happy to announce that My snapshot stories has been chosen twice for the LIEBSTER AWARD. The blog is in it’s first month and now you know why I am in the clouds. 🙂

A big thank you for this recognition goes to these two amazing bloggers whose blogs you must check out ;

For those of you still wondering what this award is all about – it is an online award given to bloggers by bloggers. In this wide ocean of the blogging community, this seems like such a kind gesture to pay it forward.

 Here’s a list of my nominees chosen to receive this award. Congratulations to each of you and cheers to continuing the chain of goodness.

  1. Kristen Pereira, creator of www.thelist-paris.com , is a bilingual (French & English) kindergarten teacher in Paris. Check out her blog to know first hand about all the things to do and places to go eat at in this lovely city of Paris.

  4. Damneet Kaur’s blog www.pixiedustdiaries.com covers topics on motherhood, fashion, travel, health, fitness, and lifestyle. She is a mom of pretty twin toddler daughters. Though we haven’t met personally, we share common profiles I realise, of being Indians abroad, twin mommies and bloggers.

So here’s a little about one of my fav blogs –  Polkadotpassport by Nicola Easterby. If you have a travel blog or interested in traveling places, I think this is a heard name by thousands. This young Australian blogger has been to 45 countries and counting and shares her travel guides complimented with the most scenic photographs. Besides tips on travel, Nicola also has a section dedicated for handy tips on photography and blogging. Even though her travel life may seem glossy in her snapshots, she regularly gives an insight to the actual behind the scenes ‘keeping it real’ life.

In addition, I also chose to answer Laura’s questions below

  1. What inspires you most of all?  – My answer: Life itself is inspiring. The fact that I open my eyes and see sunshine each morning. Although the Paris sky is beautiful in all colours.
  2. One extraordinary thing you did in your life? – My answer: Battling PCOS
  3. What do you do when you are angry? – My answer: Drink a glass of water if possible first and then confront the person I am angry with.
  4. If you could have anything you want what would you choose? – My answer: Best of health till death
  5. Continue the phrase: ” If I were you, I…”  – My answer: …would share this post and express more love 🙂

Thank you readers for taking time to read this post.

Ok I love that idea about drinking a glass of water when you’re mad! Stops you from making a rash decision when you react. Gotta try that one! And congrats on the award 🙂
