I have received a Brilliante Award!

i have just received a fabulous compliment from my friend Jamie over at The Beauty of Life!

she has nominated me for a Brilliante Award!

wow, i have been a fan of her blog for a long time now, and i have had the privilege of meeting and spending time with her at the Total Beauty Summit back in may. she is so sweet, and her blog is fabulous. each day she shares a different theme, features great products, and always makes sure to let her readers in on all the beauty deals! the idea that she even reads my blog still amazes me!

so you want to know what this award is about, right? basically, the Brillante Award highlights those blogs that are amazing and allows the person who receives it to pass it on to seven other blogs that they love.

for those of you into rules, here are the Premio Award rules:

1) when received, you may post the premio to your blog.
2) link to the blogger you received it from.
3) give it to 7 blogs.
4) link to those 7 blogs.
5) leave those 7 bloggers a comment about receiving the brilliant premio.

here are the blogs i'm nominating...

Beauty In Real Life-- if Jen and Christine could be my neighbors, i think our husbands would have to give us time limits on time spent gushing over products! i can't get enough of their fabulous blog, and it seems many more can't either. their star continues to rise, and if you don't already read their blog, you really should!

Fashion First Lunch Later-- i have just discovered this blog, but it has been added to my reader ever since! written by Beka, a fashion and food enthusiast, this blog gives me an honest glimpse of the fabulous fashion and food nyc has to offer. love it!

All About the Pretty-- i have been following Julia's blog for a long time now. since i heard her being interviewed on a favorite podcast of mine, i was hooked! i knew i would have to read her blog. well, i was not disappointed! she is to the point and honest, gives the best advice, and i tell you...she is a gem.

15 Minute Beauty Fanatic-- Christine amazes me not only because she has a fabulous blog, but also because she works full time (hello, she's a doctor!), and still manages to post several very well-written posts a day.

I'm Not Obsessed-- for a dose of celeb fashion and gossip, without being overly saturated with one or two particular celebs, this one is fabulous!

The Daily Obsession is for anyone who loves fashion, fragrance, heck, anything that is fabulous and worth spending money on. i love the fact that five different women post their experiences so all of us obsessed with beauty and fashion-not to mention their blog- have new perspectives in one place each day.

Makeup Bag-- Erika (along with her daughter, Bree, who writes the Teen Corner portion of the blog) gives us readers amazing content that i look forward to reading each day. funny, and so amazing, i give her kudos for honestly sharing her experiences not only with products, but with her own life, no matter how frustrating she may find them to be.

so those are my nominations. i hope you'll take some time to check them all out! thank you again Jamie for making my day. :)
