I've recently been nominated for an award: the Kreativ Blogger Award *insert round of applause and dramatics* by the lovely Cercalicious.
I'm so honored to have received it, after only recently starting my blog in March after the awesome CMA conference in NYC, and then catching a random writing bug for the rest of my Spring Break vacation. Starting this blog was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and has allowed me to meet so many amazing people, bloggers and companies, get opportunities I would never have otherwise, and inspire people along the way (well, at least that's what they tell me..). No, but seriously, there's no better feeling than getting a message saying that they love my blog and read it religiously, or can relate to my posts, or the best: that I've inspired them to start blogging. But, I'm not that great (obvs), and that's why receiving this award means so much to me.
So now I have to choose a few bloggers who I think run "kreativ" blogs, and I'm basically gonna choose some blogs that I live by. I'm not going to choose the obvious Atlantic-Pacific, Sea of Shoes or Fashion Boulevard (although they all deserve it immensely, I just think they're empire is built up already that receiving an award doesn't count!) I'm gonna choose girls and guys just like me, who have a laptop, and a blog, and something to say, and choose to do it every week, and sometimes every day. So without further ado..
Allie from All Dressed Up, Everywhere to Go: Allie's blog is so cute, she combines fashion with lifestyle and makes for a fun read!
Alex from High Heels and Treadmills: Alex combines fashion, lifestyle and her love for exercise, and shares motivational and inspiring messages to encourage her readers to work out and love themselves.
Hannah from The Fro-Yo Diaries: Hannah is hands-down one of the funniest girls I've met on the blogesphere (that's definitely not a word!). Her blog constantly has me laughing as she gives her take on everyday things. My fave is her Wednesday Flavors of the Week!
Kaity from brownie diaries: I first stumbled across Kaity's blog and realized how cute the layout was - the writing and header drew me in, until I started reading her content and realized how great she is! Seriously!
Lastly, Elyssa from Miss Manhattan: If there was one person living my dream life currently, it would be Elyssa. Living in NYC, writing for a million publications, building her name and blog in the city, and becoming the next Carrie Bradshaw! Ugh perf!
Girls, copy the image above and choose your fave blogs and post it!
On a completely different note, you may notice some new icons in my sidebar. I'm officially an Influenster member, an affiliate for ModCloth, and got accepted to be a member of the IFB (Independent Fashion Bloggers organization). There are a lot of changes in store for TCD and I'm excited to take you along for the ride!
