No One On The Corner Has Swagga Like Us

Stylish Blogger Award

My street cred hit an all-time high last week when I was nominated by two fellow bloggers for the Stylish Blogger Award. Holla! A big shout out to Marina and the Edmonton Tourist. Of course, with great honor comes great responsibility (right?). What I mean is there are rules. And though I usually balk at rules, in this case, I’ll play fair. I have to tell 7 things about myself- which I think is the test to prove how stylish I am. And then I have to name 7 other bloggers I think deserve this award- which is to prove I have stylish friends.

7 Stylish Things About Me

1. I love fashion. Really. Like, a LOT. Alexander McQueen (RIP), Chanel, Miu Miu, Zac Posen, Burberry, Stella McCartney- these are a few of my favorite things.

2. I give practically everyone I meet a nickname. I can’t help myself.

3. I have 4 pairs of glasses.

4. I think Zach Galifianakis is really really funny. I laugh at everything he says.

5. I absolutely love to watch bridal/wedding shows like “Say Yes To The Dress”,  “Four Weddings”, and “My Fair Wedding”. I just can’t get enough of them. They are either incredibly absurd or incredibly sweet. Love it.

6. I very rarely have crushes on celebrities. All my crushes are on journalists. Like David Muir. Sigh. And Olly Steeds. Sigh.

7. I love sunglasses. But I don’t trust people who wear them indoors.

7 Uber-Stylish Bloggers

1. Mary Danielson of Write Chic and MaryDanielson.com fame. I heart her. She is fabulous. Also, a really good friend of mine.

2. Marina of MarinaSleeps. I’m not just nominating her because she nominated me. I’m nominating her because she makes me laugh. Read her blog.

3. Cooper at Coopernicus. He too, makes me laugh. Also, he listens to really good music. Security is for cadavers.

4. The Edmonton Tourist. Her worst valentines date ever is a classic. Very stylish.

5. The Bloggess. Really, nominating her is a bit of a moot point (mute point?) because she is already super popular but I am devoted to her blog and her irreverence and her use of curse words.

6. Aka Gringita whenever someone uses the word “flotsam” I am on board. She and I are kindred spirits.

7. Drea at Never-Think. She has a point of view and won’t take shiz from nobody. And love it. Also, she is awesomely devoted to the Musical Revolution.

There are so many more but I had to choose just 7 – I told you I was playing by the rules and I meant it. Just this once.

  1. Omigosh. I don’t know what to say. I’m speechless and all aflutter… Me? Uber-stylish? I never would have thought – Oh, wait. I’m the “facetious” entry, right?

    LOL. Thanks, I’m honored to make the list. And you’re awesome… but you knew that already.

  2. Wow! I’m seriously flattered, thank you SO much *giggles childishly*. I wasn’t expecting this and I’ve come totally unprepared. I haven’t written a thank you speech or anything!

    You award is very much deserved. I think I’ve been living in a cave as I hadn’t noticed the awards…or more likely I’ve been too wrapped up in complaining!

    I have to have nicknames for people (and my dogs) as well. I have no idea why, it just happens. Something will pop into my head and then it stays there.

    I love sunglasses as well but they never seem to last long. I either break them or lose them.

    I have to admit to only reading Marina and Coopers’ blogs. They are brilliantly witty. I will go and read the others now though.

    Thank you again 🙂
