Well didn't I have my Thursday turn into something special! The beautiful, kind and ever so supportive Gemma over at Lady Sapphire Blog has nominated me for an Inspired Blog Award - what a honey you are Lady S, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and the top of my blog!
Agnieszka from Beauty Cat Castle has kindly created this award so that us bloggers can spread the love for our favourite inspirational blogs. The Rules are simple as...all we have to do is nominate at least three bloggers who inspire us, and explain why :-)
Some of my faves have already been nominated by Gemma, but here are a few more way deserving gals...
Magda from All the pretty faces hasn't posted in a while, but her eye makeup creations were responsible for the development of my passion many years ago. She is a true artist and creates the most exquisite looks with colour combinations I couldn't even dream of. Do check out her blog - I'm sure you will be in as much awe as I am at the beauty of her work :-)
Next is IndieAna from IndieAna: In Search of the HolyGrail - a dear friend, and one of my greatest enablers as far as beauty products are concerned (I blame her constantly for my ever growing collection!). She seemingly has no fear regularly posting full FOTD's, plus EOTD's and NOTD's (the latter in particular are out of this world), as well as writing strikingly honest and informative reviews. We also share a passion for magnificently pigmented & shimmery eye shadows, and I can count on her for bringing to my attention those suppliers outside the mainstream.
And my list of "inspirers" wouldn't be complete without Kate from Seducedbybeauty. Back in July of this year, Kate invited me to be her first Guest Blogger - I was so honoured, and it certainly whet my appetite for blogging, so much so that I started my own a few months later! She's also one of the most beautiful and elegant ladies I've had the pleasure to know, her articles are honest, entertaining and exceptionally well written, and her videos are a pleasure to watch. With the gift of the gab, she's both professional and refreshingly natural in her delivery.
All of these ladies are brilliant bloggers, and inspire me every day to improve my writing, makeup application and photography skills. Lovelies, all of you totally rock at blogging!
Thanks again Gemma dear for this award, I'm so touched. And I don't see any reason why I can't nominate you back darling - you make me want to be a better blogger, and a better human being xxx
Take care of you,
