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:
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:
Manju Gone Blog
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.
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:

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!
