Stylish Blogger Award

Natalie from Diary of a Girl Abroad has graciously nominated fifteen bloggers (me being one of them) for the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank you Natalie!

With this award, I'm required to share seven things about myself, so...

1) I'm shy.  Everyone I know has always described me as quiet.  That's why I love writing!

2) Some of you may already know this, but I'm a complete hopeless romantic.  I totally believe in finding my knight in shining armor.  We'll find each other one day.

3) I don't like chocolate.  The most I can really enjoy is a small piece.

4) I love Shakespeare.  Strangely enough, I can understand the language, and in fact, I think it's a beautiful language.

5) I hardly ever leave the house without a pair of earrings on.  Earrings always manage to dress up any outfit, and I love feeling my earrings move with every movie-style whip of the head.

6) This might be obvious, but I never type in "text language".  I always type everything out, simply because it's faster for me.  It's so much easier to just type "great" than to go through the entire process of converting it to "gr8".

7) I'm a nerd.  I've stumbled my way through calculus, and now I'm drowning in organic chemistry.  Is it possible for nerds like me to love fashion this much, or am I just delusional...?

I have to nominate fifteen other stylish bloggers, and so here they are!

1) Boulevard de la Madeleine

Congratulations to the fifteen bloggers above!  With this award, you're required to link back to the person that gave you the award and thank them (I find this rule quite funny), share seven things about yourself, and nominate fifteen other stylish bloggers!


  1. Congrats to you! I like reading those little curious facts about other blog members :)
    You seem more of a romantic poetically person than me, now I'm envious! XOXO

  2. Thank you so much for the award!! So sweet of you!! I can definitely relate to you in some ways: I'm also shy but sometimes, I can be very outgoing and friendly if I like the company I'm in. I'm so glad we're both romantics! Do you know how hard it is to find romantics these days?! I wish reading Shakespeare is easy for me because I love his language. And you know, I always write out complete sentences and make sure my grammar is correct when I text too. I don't believe that just because we have easier way to communicate, it doesn't mean we can abandon proper use of language! xoxoxoxoxoo

  3. COngrats so much! you deserve it sweetie! And it's so fun to read some facts about you, makes me fell like I just got to know you better!

    Love Iben

  8. Hi! Congrats on the award, and thank you so much for nominating me! You probably made my day today, with the nomination and also your wonderful comment on my post earlier today. I loved reading it, and it's so true, for a while I was kind of obsessed with followers because I felt excited with how quickly I was gaining, but then I remembered the real reason I started my blog, for fashion, and fun, and it's comments like yours that make me want to keep it up! It was such a compliment to receive your comment, and then to get this nomination too! You rock, and I think your blog is also interesting and always fresh, I always check for new posts :) I loved reading these 7 facts about you, we've got a lot in common--I am terribly shy, but I also adore writing, and I'm admittedly a romantic! And yes, I too am kind of a nerd! Bye, thanks again!

  9. Congrats on the award...your blog is so beautiful. I'm following now! By the way I'm naturally shy also.

    Baci**kisses from Rome!

  10. Thanks! :) I hope u had a great christmas time 2! Have a nice day.
    Best wishes,
    CK from


  11. I really thank you :) This thing is amazing, really thank you. ABou the seven things I was really shecked that you don't liek's wonderful because it's very good for your silhouette but it's also so sad not to eat chocolate, I love completley it!!!

  12. Very cool answers! You are not a nerd you're a cool chick!

  13. Thank you for nominating me!!! What an exciting honor! I will happily nominate other bloggers if you give me an e mail address.


  14. yaaaay you totally deserve it! i love your blog!

    and i was surprised how many of your 7 things could apply to me too. i'm a total shakespeare geek, like i can reel off quotes and everything. and i hate text-speak. there's nothing wrong with being a nerd.. is there? :)


  15. Congrats :) and thank you for including me in this award!!!

  16. @Venus in Virgo: How right you are! It's funny how people can determine my personality from a couple of facts!

    @Fashion Cappuccino: You certainly don't look like the shy type! But you're right about the romantics. I have a couple of romantic friends, but then I have those that are determined to never marry (whereas it's my dream to see the man I love smiling back at me down the aisle). But I find fashion lovers are often romantics as well! And I am so glad you still believe in proper language.

    @E: Haha! That is the reaction I get from most people. I just don't find the taste of chocolate incredibly appealing... :P

    @charstar: Haha! And a fellow Shakespeare fanatic! Yay!

  17. congrats for the award! I'm shy around new people too, and yeah I kind of don't like people that use gr8 and things like that in texting lol seems so middle school

  18. Thank you so much for the award ;-)

    (You DON'T like chocolate but you like organic chemistry?? What on earth??)
