Happy {Award Filled} Friday!

Happy Friday lovelies! It's that fabulous time of week that I get to wake up and fast forward to fun thoughts of the weekend. I'm planning on having some down time on Saturday. Not quite sure what I'll do yet but it will most likely including some strolls outside and dining al fresco since it's going to be nice out again. And Sunday we'll be visiting the various important mothers in our lives.

So to start the the weekend off right I wanted to pass on a little blog love. Firstly, I want to send my heartfelt gratitude out to the amazing bloggers who passed the awards onto me. It means so much to get these awards. To hear that people actually think my blog deserves an award really blows my mind. Thank you all so much for visiting and reading and commenting here every day. It really fills my heart with such joy :)

Thank you so much, Ms. Hark @ Not Just Another Blonde in Beijing for the Happy 101 Award! I'm a pretty happy person in general and this makes me all the more happy :) You're the best sweetie! Definitely check her out if you haven't already. She a ton of fun, gorgeous, happy, has great fashion sense and is just about to move on over to Beijing. Can't wait to follow along as she heads out on her exciting adventure.

I also wanted to thank Mixed Matched Media for the You're Going Places Award. She's really fab and if you haven't already, I highly suggest that you run right over and check out her blog. She's a beyond talented illustrator and photographer and you're all gonna love her work!

Also a big merci to Punctuation Mark for passing on the You're Going Places Award as well as the Sunshine Award. Two in one! I'm so lucky! :) Punctuation Mark is an Interior Designer living in Miami. Her blog is chock full of her work, her travels and her exciting experiences. Gotta check her out as well!

Thank you so much Lazaro of Lazaro Cooks for the Beautiful Blogger Award! Also he asked me to play the 6th Photo game. Now if you people love delicious food I strongly advise you all to head to to his blog. All I can say is YUM! He has me drooling every day with his delicious recipes. I'm hungry now just thinking of them :P

And lastly thank you so much to one of my newest blogging buddies Tamara Nicole @ Memory Bean Designs for the Stylish Blogger Award! I'm so flattered that you think I'm stylish! :) Check her out, she's awesome.

OK so now I get to pass these babies on. Let's start with the rules.

Happy 101 Award & The Sunshine Award - they have the same rules so I'm going to combine this one.
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award.

I pass this onto the award of your choice...Happy 101 or Sunshine to:

You're Going Places Baby Award
1. Link back to the blogger who sent you this award
2. Post where you would like to be in 10 years
3. Pass it on to 10 other special bloggers!

I did this one once before so here's my answer for the where I'd like to be in 10 years part. And now I'd like to pass this on to the following well deserving blogs:

Beautiful Blogger Award
1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
2. Copy the award & place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.
7. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.

I also did this one once before so here's my 7 interesting things.

And here are the 7 bloggers I nominate:

And lastly the Stylish Blogger Award
State 5 random facts about yourself and award 5 other bloggers.

Here are 5 random, they may not be that interesting but they are in fact random, facts :)
  • I've lived in NY state my entire life, NYC in particular, for the past 20 years.
  • I recently, within the past few years, discovered an appreciation for Sushi.
  • My email is flooded with countless google alerts every day for all types of random people including Olivia Palermo, Sean Avery, Yasmin le Bon and Sienna Miller.
  • I have probably close to 50 different scarves and I usually wear one every day.
  • Even though I love to be pampered I prefer to do my own manicures because they turn out better and last much longer than when I get them done at a salon.

And here are 5 fabulously fashionable bloggers that I'd like to pass this onto:

And last by not least, the 6th photo I ever posted to my blog was:

Now that was interesting.... I invite all of you to join in this game :)

Hope you all have an amazing weekend! xoxo
