Guess what I won

It was bound to happen. I got hit with one of those chain reactions. But since it comes with an award, I’ll take it. Not to mention, I was number one. Chosen by a very stylish Mom In Rome. Could be hormonal due to her very pregnant state, lack of reason caused by nail polish vapor or vertigo from always wearing high heels, but she said I am an award winning author and that is serious!


I needed some time to treat myself to something pretty celebrate. It was not easy to decide if  Cole Hann, Furla or Botkier designer handbags would best represent my stylishness. And of course I could not ask my husband, since he is still recovering from my last purchase.

But I am back to fulfill my duty as a stylish blogger. Because with a tittle come responsibilities: just ask Miss Universe! Here is what I need to do:

N.1  I have to tell you seven random things about me ( I like talking so that should be easy)

N.2  I have to give the award to five new bloggers ( I cannot make decisions, not even what to eat for a snack. So I will let my dog Big M weigh in)


Let talk about me first:

Bet you did not know I am a natural blond.

Bet you did not know I enjoy doing complex math problems.

Bet you did not know I can do a triple pirouette.

Bet you did not know I am an oenophile.

Bet you did not know I used to be an alien.

Bet you did not know I can sing beautifully.

Bet you knew only one of the above is true.



And now for the big reveal ( this is in no particular order, but my favorite is the one that comments on my  blog the most. Or the one that makes the best cup of tea. Or maybe the other one. Honestly, this is so hard)

Jenni, sweet  Jenni at her Stolen Moments .

Mahin, inspiring  Mahin at Queen Mahin .

Alison, cheeky Alison at Mama Wants This .

Angela, one of a kind Angela at Begging The Answer .

Heather, can’t catch me Heather at  Minivan Momma .

So there you have it. Check out the bloggers I find stylish. And by stylish I mean really good reads. Cause I don’t know what kind of shoes they wear…

What? Which one of my 7 is true? Well what do you think?

P.S. Breaking news: I have been informed guests wear evening dresses to the award ceremony. I might have to call in sick.

    I knew you were an alien. Although you try to hide it under your good looks, blond hair and funny writing.

    Thank you for awarding me with the Stylish Blogger Award. I can now add another button to my endless collection of buttons, and now with 3 pending award posts, I guess I should post something and pass it on. I will put that on my never-ending to-do list. So thanks Stasha, for giving me more work. Hahahahahaha! Love you!

    Awesome! Thank you! And of course it’s your beautiful singing voice…I know about your choir days at school! Just kidding, I know it’s that you’re a natural blonde. Ok, I have to go beautify…an award winner must look hot at all times, right?
    PS, My shoes are fabulous. I don’t get called a shoe whore for nothing… 😉 xxx

      Why is everybody assuming I started of as an alien?! Can this be taken as a compliment?

  5. Dumb Mom May 17, 2011 at 02:11 #

    Allison is pretty stylish! I actually came to your blog directly from hers! And a triple piroutte eh? I can’t even figure out how to spell it so no chance I can even attempt to do one. Lack of svelte figure, lack of body coordination worth a darn, and lack of motivation will keep my feet firmly planted on the ground, until I trip over them at least! Thanks for sharing these stylish ladies. Off to check ’em out!

      You will not regret it. I have excellent taste. In fact that’s what my awards should be. Then again, how would I justify buying a new handbag?

    Good gracious, I am honored! I shall begin working on my acceptance post-haste.

      Steady on, no rush. Once you are a celebrity, you make your own rules. You can even hire someone to write these things for you. So you have time to write about being a dirty whore.

    Stopping by from lovelinks…and I’m guessing that “Bet you did not know I am an oenophile.” is the true statement.

      Thank you for believing in me. So you think I can tell the difference between vinegar and wine. Or that I drink too much?

    Thank you again for the honor. I still find myself waking up at night and pinching hard.

  9. Linda Medrano May 17, 2011 at 08:41 #

    Congratulations, and I do think you deserve the award and perhaps a prize! Maybe a lovely Silver Oak Cabernet? Yeah, that’s what you should win!

      Any prize is a good prize. There are days I would be chuffed with a stale chip.

    What’s this about being an alien? I’m guessing you don’t mean the extraterrestrial kind.

    Thanks for lovelinking!

      I know. Why does everyone insist on me being an alien?! Is it my good looks?

    Nice! I’m definitely an oenophile and I’m pretty sure my husband is an alien…

      Yep, Furla is classy and eternal. And such pretty, spring colour. Now all we need is spring weather.

    This was funny! Thank you so much for the award and thank you so much for teaching me a new word: oenophile. Now I’m almost wishing that I was not a teetotaller because I’d totally be rocking that word!
    Thank you again.
