You Like Me!

Oh my stars and garters, I've received my first-ever internet award! I wish I could say that I was mildly amused by this, but the truth is I'm unbelievably tickled. I made the Boy come to the computer and gush with me; I'm currently trying to figure out if this can be put on a resume.

A million thanks to Diana of the incredible blog, our.city.lights., for nominating me!

Rules:

  1. Put the logo on your post.
  2. Nominate 5-10 blogs you like.
  3. Be sure to link to your nominees in your post.
  4. Let them know they have received the award by commenting on their blog.
  5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who gave you the award.
My nominees:
  • our.city.lights: I don't know the protocol for these awards, but I ultimately decided that regardless, Diane deserves to be showered with blog-love. She's incredibly inspiring; her covet-able outfits, legendary camera collection, and thoughtful posts are a delight to read.
  • Daddy Likey: Thinking back, Daddy Likey is probably the reason I started blogging in the first place. Winona's fresh, funny take on all things fashion -- and quite a few things not at all fashion-related -- is a gem amongst the overwhelming "meh" of most style blogs.
  • The Clothes Horse: The Clothes Horse may seem like a run-of-the-mill "what I wore today" fashion blog, but that's far too dismissive. The Clothes Horse has inspired me to really think about what I'm wearing; my predilection for dresses is probably directly influenced by scrolling through the Clothes Horse's enchanting photos.
  • Saturday Jane's Last Semester: Saturday Jane is a new blogger, but she's easily one of my favourite reads. Her posts are at once witty, poignant, and always intelligent. She's going to be a star.
  • Lemon Love: This is another recent find, and it's quickly climbing to the top of my favourites list. I am insanely jealous of her design skills, her artistic ability, and her eyebrows. In general, I am insanely jealous.
  • Lesley Denford: One of the top five most beautiful blogs on the internet. Lesley is an incredibly talented artist, and her gorgeous collages also serve as eye-candy for the blog. Inspiration personified.
  • babyassface: Funniest blog name ever. The first time I read babyassface, I laughed so hard I knocked my computer off my lap, causing my mother to come in from another room and yell at me. Jenny has humour in spades and skin care advice to match.
Thanks again and share the love!

Awww congrats! I've been reading this blog for a bit now (what a lurker I am sometimes!) and it's rather lovely. You deserve it.

Also, go ahead and put it on your resume 'cause I'm pretty sure that having blog awards count for a huge percentage of the prestigious-type stuff that companies are looking for in an employee.
