the paragon of style award

The last two months of 2009 was the craziest and most exciting part of the year for me because of all the friends I met here in the blogosphere. You have been a great inspiration not only in fashion but in life as well. You have no idea how you make my day a little better with your sweet words and amazing posts. If only I can give you all a biiiiiiig biiiiiig biiiiiiig hug, I will. What about a virtual BIG HUG? ((((((HUGS)))))))

Since the year is practically over, I wanna give an award to my lovely friends who made my year extra stylish!
PARAGON: n. a model of excellence or perfection (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

I wanna give this award to these fabulous ladies. I intend to write about their style below their photos but words won't give them justice. If a picture paint a thousand words, theirs paint a million--they certainly are poetry in motion. Visit their blogs and I'm sure you'll agree with me. They are the women Venus envy. They define beauty and breathe style.

Now you know why I put them on a pedestal.

Thank you ladies for showering the world with your impeccable style. I can't wait for the yet another year of dashing inspiration and lovely friendship with you.

I love you Betz... super thanks. And I know you made this award yourself. I haven't seen this in the blog world. This is original which makes it more special.

You are such a good soul, I know you are, I can feel it.

PS... I will do the shoot... just tell me when... anytime, anywhere. xoxo

Words fail me ... really! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

2009 has been a painful year for me. The hubby and I experienced many betrayals from those whom we thought we could trust. On the other end of the stick lay the revelation of who our real friends were.

I began my blogsite as a way to escape from yet another big emotional hurdle I faced ... little did I know that I would meet like minded, fashionable, yet deeply kind human beings like you!

I face 2010 unafraid ... no matter how bad things may get, I have your blog to go home to ... who inspires whom? It's most probably you inspiring me?! God bless you ALWAYS, dear Betz!

Such an honour thank Betz you are always fabulous too and your comments always make my day. I started my blog for something to do and beautiful people like yourself make it all worth while. xxx Thank you once again xxx :)

I am honored and thrilled beyond words!!!! I have never received an award or recognition like that and I am blown away by your thoughtfulness and kind words. And to receive it on my birthday made it even more special.

I started this blog not knowing if anyone would ever see it but me. I am having so much fun with it and the best part is meeting wonderful people like you!

Here's to a very stylish 2010. And again, thank you for this honor from the bottom of my heart!
