Last night just when I thought nothing could make me happier than a day filled with chocolate, hot cross buns and five glasses of my favourite Alcante Pinot Grigio, something did. In fact it warmed my heart more than my favourite episode of Friends, like ever, could;
I came home after a gorgeous Thai out with my hubby, scoffing a dark chocolate gelato from Pompeii's, life was particularly rosy, but the perfect day and evening was further topped off when I arrived home to discover the ever-lovely Nat of Raspberry Rouge had nominated me as one of her Liebster Blog Awards!!
Such a compliment coming form such a professional looking blog. Nat swatches some really beautiful cosmetics with great pictures to match, she seems to have similar taste in products to me so I always look forward to her reviews and she also is home to the cool Nail Wall , which is just a smorgasbord of fab swatches.
As I learned through my heavenly wine haze last night, The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award you link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs.
It's just so lovely for a blow-in blogger like myself who has only been rattling on for the past month or so to receive such a lovely compliment. I tell you it warms my heart better than anything a Pinot Grigio could ever do to think that people are actually reading what you write and even more so that they enjoy it!!
So passing on my feelings of festive joy I would like to announce the nominees for the Me, my best and I Liebster Blog Award in the category of total fabulous and awesome blog chickies.............
(tentative pause and lingering, suspense-filled silence)
- Jade Musing - I first discovered Jade's blog via the Vogue forum and she is responsible for my love of Woolworth's microfibre face washers!! Since getting my iPhone I've been able to keep up with all her blog posts more easily which I always find balanced and honest . I also find she has a kind of hippy zen that really translates and appeals to me and I just feel I can always relate to her posts. She has similar taste in scents to me, so if she likes the smell of a product I generally know I will too. I also think she has a cool laissez-faire in her videos that makes them all the more enjoyable. I feel she is being herself and not trying too hard which makes for great reviewing, braver than I am- am sooo not at the videoing stage yet!
- Hair Romance - as a Leo I am obsessed with my hair but not because I love my mane , because it frustrates me. I always wanted to have a friend who was a hairdresser so I could get them to answer all my never-ending hair questions conundrums. Her blog sort of fills this void for me and I love the Hair Romance's advice and suggestions and her stylish site. I find her expertise so helpful (I owe being able to wear a headscarf to her!), her hair seems similar to mine (albeit much more luscious and thick) and am so excited about her May challenge of a new twist and pin do every day. Cool idea and I can't wait to see what she posts.
- alazygirlsguidetobeauty - Katelin is such a sweetie and she posted my very first comment on my blog. Her comments are always so lovely and since the first I always look forward to the next! She shares my love of Lush and is always tempting me with her Lush posts too...she's a nurse too, I always trust a nurse's advice!!
(wolf whistles, woot woots and applause)
Anyway what nicer time of year than Easter to share the love and pay it forward, Easter Bunny stylee....
So ladies, who's your Liebster??
