Blog, and You Shall Be Nominated and Tagged IV

I can’t believe I’m doing one of these posts again! Before I proceed, let me put on record that I only ever do such posts certainly not to brag, but really in recognition of the ladies who have been kind enough to nominate me for an award. I would rather accept the awards with a thank you and a great sense of appreciation and then, fade away quietly. But I won’t do that, as I wouldn’t be doing the kindness of the ladies who nominated me any justice!

So, in recent weeks, I was nominated for several awards. Three lovely ladies have included me in their respective I Frequently Read Your Blog lists. These great bloggers are:

M :) of All About Beauty, Cosmetics, and Skin
Cynthia of Delhi's Beauty Addict
The Beautifier of Asian Beautifier

Thank you so much for the mention, ladies. I deeply appreciate the support you’ve given me. It’s no exaggeration that the support I get from you and other lovely bloggers gives me the motivation to march on.

For this, I in turn would have to mention ten blogs that I stalk. This is the hardest part for me as there are so many that I frequently read. This award is definitely for the three beautiful ladies named above and to be fair, I'm passing this on also to those whom I've never before mentioned on my blog:

Evening Lavender
Get Gawjus!
Manju Gone Blog
miss kyou
Shop N' Chomp
The Girlie Blog
The Glamorous Gleam

If you don't see your blog on this list, please don't be miffed. Perhaps there is already a mention of you in one of my previous award/tag posts. You do know that I read your blogs, don't you? Awards come and awards go and it will only be a matter of time before another newly created award sweeps through beauty blog land again. If it ever swings my way again, you could be next on the list.

Another blog award that I got was the I Love Your Blog award from Nefertari's Sparkles. I had already featured this award in a previous post, so this mention is to give my thanks to Nefertari for her thoughtfulness. I really appreciate this.

The next one, the Over the Top award, is also from Cynthia. The Beautifier had also tagged all her followers (of which I am one) with this. Thank you so much! Well, a 35-question tag comes with this award, so here goes:

1. Where is your cell phone? In my coat pocket
2. Your hair? Fuss-free
3. Your Mother? The epitome of calm
4. Your Father? Enterprising
5. Your favourite food? All kinds of hot creamy soups
6. Your dream last night? I was ordering baked crabs (??)
7. Your favourite drink? Green tea
8. Your dream/goal? To emulate my parents (see above)
9. What room are you in? A very warm and cosy room
10.Your hobby? Cooking and shamelessly updating the world on my late bloomer exploits
11.Your fear? An empty fridge
12.Where do you want to be in 6 years? In a wiser and happier state of being
13.Where were you last night? Here
14.Something that you aren't? Loud
15.Muffins? Can’t resist. Chocolate, please.
16.Wish list item? Chocolate muffins (you got me started!)
17.Where did you grow up? In a loving home
18.Last thing you did? Typing “home”
19.What are you wearing? Sweater and jeans
20.Your TV? Educative
21.Your Pets? All three are in dog heaven, RIP
22.Friends? A humorous bunch
23.Your Life? One big adventure
24.Your Mood? Contemplative
26.Vehicle? Has just been serviced
27.Something you're not wearing? A long face
28.Your favourite store? Albert Heijn for food shopping
29.Your favourite colour? Black
30.When was the last time you laughed? I’m still laughing!
31.When was the last time you cried? Can’t recall
32.Your best friend? Is sitting beside me, having a laugh reading this tag
33.One place that you go to over and over? The kitchen
34.Facebook? Never been sold on it
35.Favourite place to eat? At my parents’, of course!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but one question is missing. I have no idea what it is but let's all not lose any sleep over it, OK? I’m passing this award and tag to all my fellow bloggers. You are all cool and amazing and you know it!

The final but not least order of the day is a re-post. I don’t usually do this but The Beautifier has shown me such fantastic support since our paths crossed. I’d like to reciprocate and I’d like to complete my single entry for her giveaway! So, this is me plugging for her giveaway to celebrate reaching her 100-follower milestone (frankly, at the rate she’s going, she really should consider renaming it a 250-follower giveaway!). Go check out her fun and cheerful blog and participate!

That’s it, ladies. Many thanks for the awards and the tag. I look forward to reading yours soon!

Thanks so much for nominating me. Happy New Year my dear blogger friend.

Eli said...

Yeah, I feel you, I'm very grateful when someone nominates me to some award of this type but I'm way too lazy to re-post the whole again and sometimes I don't even feel like doing it. But I guess it's a price we have to pay for having so many blogfriends lol

witoxicity said...

You’re most welcome! Enjoy the holidays! :)

Don’t mention it, my friend! Early New Year greetings to you too! :)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I understand your point of view but I’m afraid that wasn’t quite what I meant. My apologies for not explaining myself properly.

I’m always very happy and appreciative when fellow bloggers nominate me for an award. I would never neglect doing these posts just because I’m not in the mood or by reason of laziness. What I really meant was that I don’t want to seem like I’m blowing my own trumpet when I do such posts.

So as to avoid anyone else misconstruing what I meant, I have rephrased the first paragraph slightly. :)

Thanks, Eli, for pointing this out to me! :)

The Beautifier said...

Hi!! thank you sooooooo much for including my name in your lovely post!!
hehe we really got your started this time! your fear is an empty fridge?! lol, your dreaming about baked crabs, muffins, chocolates, it seems that food is also stalking you nowadays!!
Oh dear! I'm on a diet and reading your tag made my mouth water!!

p.s thanks a lot for featuring my giveaway in your lovely post, you made me speechless this time girl!

Have a wonderful New Year xoxo

thank you so much for including me! you're really a sweetheart :)

Eli aka Negra Cabreada said...

Oops my bad, my poor English skills hace gotten me into a bit of trouble I guess lol, now I read my comment and it sounds pretty selfish. I really meant that sometimes you have so many pending posts that you struggle to find time to post any meme, but as I said before they're always welcome, they're a sign of gratitude and friendship :-)

congratulations ^^

Shop N' Chomp said...

Thanks, hun! :D I love hot creamy soups and choc muffins too!

witoxicity said...

@The Beautifier
You're most welcome! I meant every word that I said there. The support you've shown means a lot to me. Thank you! :)

My pleasure! Me, a sweetheart? Heh heh! A sweet tooth is what apparently I have! :D

It's lovely of you to stop by again. Thanks for clearing the air about this.

I suppose when one starts to blog, awards and tags come with the territory. That's why I give the title of such posts "Blog, and You Shall Be Nominated and Tagged". That's true but it's all done in the spirit of fun and friendship! :D

Thank you! :)

@Shop N'Chomp
You're welcome! Hot creamy soups are perfect especially for the cold winter months. Mmmm.... :D
