The Liebster Awards

As you may know, this isn't my first time running a blog... However, this is the first time I have felt 'somewhat' successful at running one. I have spent quality time designing my blog, both in appearance and context, and have already received (in the little time modedeviebel has been up and running) multiple emails, comments and messages on my social media from both readers and fellow bloggers.

The Liebster Awards is an award given to bloggers by bloggers in recognition of all their hard work and this year I am so excited to have been nominated by the lovely Kaci over at Earth to Kaci (you should all definitely go check her out - her blog post on her brothers sky-diving proposal is incredibly cute!) By accepting this nomination, it allows me to build relationships with other bloggers as well as give new blogs the recognition they deserve.

If you are new to blogging or just unfamiliar with the Liebster Awards then you can simply click here to find out more. With that in mind, the rules are as follows:
  1. Say thank you to the person who nominated you (Thank you Kaci) and link their blog
  2. Copy and paste the Liebster badge on to your post
  3. Nominate five other bloggers with less than 200 followers
  4. Answer the ten questions the person who nominated you asked
  5. Make ten more for the people you nominate
  6. And lastly (sorry I'm going for a cringe moment) have fun doing it!
Before I answer the questions I was given, I would first like to announce my five nominees (make sure to check them out) and questions if they chose to accept.

My Questions from Kaci:

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in September 2013 for my A Level Film and Media Projects, then later that year I decided to start a personal blog. However, I dived right into my first blog with no real structure or plan to it, hence this brand spanking new one! 

What made you want to blog?
I have always enjoyed recording my life, via a secret diary when I was six to my facebook page as a teenager. I love the idea of returning to this blog in years to come and looking at how I've changed - through simple things like how I express myself or the topics I ramble on about... It fascinates me.

Who are your favourite bloggers?
My favourite blogger has to be Anna Saccone(Joly). The Sacconejoly's are my favourite youtubers and despite the contraversy, I would love to have a life time of recorded moments from my childhood. Anna mostly talks about fashion, beauty and all things lifestyle including her two adorable children Emilia and Eduardo. If you haven't already I would strongly recommend taking a look at Anna's blog - I love it!

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
No doubt about it - New York! Start spreading the neeeeews... sorry I'll stop

What is your favourite quote?
"Sorry for the inconvenience, we are trying to change the world"

Name three beauty products that you couldn't live without.
  1. Rimmel London wake me up concealer
  2. Armani - Diamonds perfume
  3. Jack wills vanilla lip balm
How did you decide on the title of your blog?
My initials are B E L and as a child I always pronounced it as Belle as she was my favourite princess from my favourite Disney film 'Beauty and the Beast'. Since 'Beauty and the Beast' is set in France I decided to carry on this theme and used the French word for Lifestyle; Mode de vie. Hence; Modedeviebel. 

What is your favourite animal?
My favourite animal has to be an elephant! After visiting New York the second thing on my bucket list has to be to ride an elephant. OH MY DAYS I COULD NOT COPE!

Where do you call home?
There are many places I consider to be home, places where I have felt my most secure and happy. These are places I have visited with my family and friends where we have shared many great memories - I would say Cornwall, Carmel and York are second homes to me.

Name your favourite childhood memory.
I had a very happy childhood and I honestly have no stand out favourite childhood memory apart from obvious holidays and birthdays. One thing I do remember is how me and my younger sister often made 'dens' out of mountains (or so it seemed) of cushions and blankets and watched Disney films in the dark. 

Thanks again Kaci for nominating me, and for anyone else who has taken time read even one of my blog posts! Make sure to check out both Kaci and all my nominations x


  1. I love reading these posts - you learn so much about the blogger behind all the words and the photos. That quote is amazing, I've never heard it before - do you have any idea who said it?

    Just found you via Twitter and I'm now I'm a new follower :) x
