Welcome to my blog. Come and stay for a while! 

awards season

Dreams don't come for free, people. Diva and Dior both begin with D. That's a good start.

Meanwhile, I may never get an Oscar but I do have these! Proudly displayed next to my treasured, over-excited picture at Ice Cream City in Japan. A city. Full of ICE.CREAM.

The bubble of energy that is Eelie at Aphex Nation and the gorgeous Petra at City of Petra have brightened my day with the Proximidade award. And Petra has also gifted me with the "I Love Your Blog" award. These two lovely ladies always generate a big smile when I see them pop up in my comments section. They are both timeless and completely remarkable!

The Proximidade award comes with a write-up which sums up what it is about.

"Blogs who receive this award are "exceedingly charming," says it's authors. This award is a fine one because it focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this online-world.
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated.

Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into into the body of their award."

These awards just thrill me to little bits. And so I am passing BOTH AWARDS on to some very special ladies who make blogging look like a breeze and charm me with every post they write, not to mention come up with inspiring, stylish outfits practically every day!
