Finally after so long, The Thrifty Chic Girl has been nominated for the Liebster Award. Yipee!!
Thank you so much Ausmita from WanderfulWeekendz for nominating me. Asumita & her husband decided to explore the world around them one weekend at and a time and started sharing it with all of us on their blog. You guys should totally check out their blog at https://wanderfulweekendz.com/. It’s truly amazing.
So what exactly is the Liebster Award?
The Liebster Award is an internet award given by the bloggers to the bloggers. It was created in 2011 to encourage bloggers to promote new and emerging blogs. It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people. If you have been nominated for the Liebster Award, here what you should do.
Before I start talking about who I will be nominating, here are the questions that Ausmita asked me
When and how did you start blogging?
I had actually been blogging for some time but I had to stop in between because of my studies and everything. I deleted the whole blog I was working on and started all over again in February 2016 with a new name & style. And this time, I decided to write about all that I was passionate about: Fashion & Travel.
What inspired you to pick this name for your blog?
I choose to name my blog “The Thrifty Chic Girl” because it was something that resonates perfectly with who I am. I truly believe that fashion & travel is all about exploring endless possibilities & having fun without burning a hole in your pocket.
Where did you go on your first trip ever?
My parents actually love travelling so I have been travelling around India since I was maybe 3 years old. My first trip ever was to Mumbai. But if we are talking about trips without parents, my first trip would be to an impromptu road trip to Patiala with my friends
What is your travel style?
I like to travel light with only a few clothes & focus more on taking everything I would need for my camera & some light weight snacks so that I’m not hungry when travelling.
Three things you cannot travel without.
My camera, a nice toiletries essential bag and my phone.
If you were not allowed to blog about travel, what would be blogging about instead?
Fashion!! For sure!!
What is your dream destination?
Well, my dream destination was Paris & I was luckily enough to visit it last November. So now I guess my dream destination is Santorini, Iceland and Lakshadweep Islands.
What has been your best and worst experience while travelling?
My best travel experience would have to Leh-Ladakh & Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Both of these places are so spectacular & breath taking. My worst would be Orissa as I accompanied my mom while she was on a work tour & I ended up exploring her office area, which was fun but not what I really wanted to do.
What is the most adventurous thing you have done on a trip?
I’m really scared of drowning so Scuba Diving in the Andaman Islands would surely be the most adventurous thing for me.
Your impression of WanderfulWeekendz
I really loved WanderfulWeekendz. I love that they are exploring & writing about so many nice & unknown places in India. India is fully of awesome destinations and I love that they are shining a light on these places.
