I was given the "You Make My Day" award by Irene two days ago. I was so honered and flattered to hear it from a popular blogger like Irene, whose blog, Bloesem, has been a favorite of mine since its day one. Thank you, Irene!
So here's how the "You Make My Day" award works:
1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make your day.
2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3. Tell the award winners that they've won by commenting on their blogs.
Yes, I agree with Irene, it is a torture(!) to just pick 5 blogs. Seriously. I have numerous blogs that make my day, I'm sure some blogs obviously know how much I love them. ;-) But since I could only pick 5 of them, please don't hate me. :)
So my "You Make My Day" awards go to:
Kim and Jo of Desire to Inspire. Their posts on gorgeous interiors, talented photographers and stylists from around the world have been great indulgences to my excessive magazine addiction. And believe me, even my husband is so thankful to have such blog. :)
Jan of Poppytalk. I've been reading her blog since my early days in the blogland. She was one of the few women who inspired me to start my own blog. And she's a blogger mom, too. I treasure her great eye on graphics, typography, photography, vintage and handmade items. And her awesome(!) collection of tutorials, too, of course.
Bowie of Print & Pattern. Every single visit to her blog never(!) fails to make me happy. I could get overly excited everytime I read her posts. Really. Truly. Honestly. I'm pretty sure you do too. It is a treat that everyone must have. Must, I say!
Birdie of dear ada. This is the blog that has been teaching me a lot(!) about appreciating art in different forms. Birdie has an amazing and tasteful eye on art. Because of her, I made a resolution this year to visit at least one art exhibition every week. I really hope I can keep this up for the whole year.
Ms. Spinach of Fashion Is Spinach. I was not a big fan of fashion, but Ms. Spinach had somewhat changed my views on fashion, and more importantly... on how to dress up myself(!). She has a great fashion sense and a very addictive style of writing. Plus... very influential(!) shopping guides. I did a total wardrobe makeover last December because of her fashion influences. :) So you see, I cut costs on magazines, and spend them on fashion(!). Great financial decision, no? :)
