10 Things...

A little while ago, Little Rus of the fabulous Fashion Titbits gave out this Stylish Blogger Award to all her readers and asked that each recipient list 10 things that help create their own unique style. So here goes...
I Got a Love for Fashion...
1. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved picking out my own clothes and doing my own hair
.
2. Every now and then, I need a change without taking drastic measures. Fashion allows me to do just that.
I Dress how I Feel and my Mood is Affected by...
3. Good food. I'm a BIG foodie!
4. Chocolate. I am a certifiable chocoholic.
5. My hair. It does what it wants, when it wants. Sometimes I just have to let it take over...and certain outfits only work with certain hair, LOL.
I Take a Cue from my Surroundings...
6. Nature. There is such beauty around us, we just have to take the time to notice...and be inspired.
7. The Weather. A sudden change can mean starting from scratch and putting on an entirely different outfit.
I can be Influenced...
8. I do love my fashion magazines!
9. Television and movies. Sometimes I'll forget what's going on onscreen because I can't take my eyes off of a fabulous outfit!
10. Blogs! In this short time, I've come across so many lovely blogs, each have a unique touch reflective of one's personal style, and each surely inspire!

I would like to pass on this Stylish Blogger award to the ever so stylish lovelies at:
Brunch at Saks, Le Journal de Mode, LenoreNeverMore
Haute World, The Beauty File, We Were Damsels
and of course to the stylish creator deserving of this award, Fashion Titbits

That same day, Little Rus also gave out this Style Inspiration Blog Award to a few blogs. I feel very honoured to have been one of the recipients, especially because her blog is laden with stylish inspiration! Thank you, Little Rus!

Seeing as your blogs are one of the 10 things that inspire me, I would like to pass on this award to all of you! You must know that you inspire me (and all your readers) or we wouldn't be coming back day after day bombarding you with comments :) Style is something infused in all aspects of life; in dress, at home, in food presentation, in entertainment, etc. There is no doubt your blogs inspire style, so I do hope you will accept it. Hope you're having a lovely week thus far!

  4. A great list! I agree with so much of it! And thanks for passing it on :) I'll do my best to post this asap (I always take a while with awards for some reason, so don't be surprised if you don't see it up immediately ;-) And I can so relate to the food thing. Husband and I are the biggest foodies ever and my mood plummets when I haven't eaten yet. I can also really relate to the chocolate addiction as well.

    P.S. I don't really think you look like a lollipop, but that's just me!

  8. Congrats on the awards. :)
    I love your list. I laughed out loud when I read that sometimes you can get distracted by fashion in movies/tv. I'm the exact same way! I find it hard to follow old movies because I'm bombarded with fashion overload...so mesmerized by the beautiful dresses and gloves and scarves.

  11. You are so sweet! Seriously, your comment made me so happy. I grew up in Tokyo and Utah so I have been to those temples, and I live on the East coast now so we went to NYC, Palmyra, and Boston. And you are so fashionable! I love it.

  12. Great post!! Congrats on the award :). I am like you with the outfits and the hair. Sometimes certain outfits only look good with curly hair and others with straight...it's weird.

  27. I love all your answers, especially your comment on your hair. Do I ever feel you on that one! My hair is so thick and crazy I honestly leave it alone most of the time otherwise I'd be stuck in the bathroom all day wrestling with a blow dryer and/or straight iron! Sometimes a girl has got to pick her battles!
