FBFF~And Your nominees are...

Fashion/Beauty Friend Friday~Blog Awards 

Weekly, Katy from ModlyChic, emails us questions that we answer on our blogs on Fridays.
 This week, I am so excited for the launch of the Fashion/Beauty Friend Friday Blog Awards!! We name one blogger for each category and next week we will vote on the top five in each. 

{The blogs we vote do not have to be in FBFF}

Ok, first, I'm sorry I don't have nominations for all ten categories!! I really wanted to be honest and not just go with what I thought others would vote. So these are blogs that I read and I really favor. There were a couple categories that I just didn't feel strongly about for one specific blog, and didn't want to just pick one. OR I had the same person in mind that I chose for another category. Anyway, here it is:

1. Creative Juices - most creative
Image 727Linda from The Auspicious Life
I love her blog. First off, her layout!! I haven't seen a layout like this before, and I think it's really fun and unique. I also enjoy her sense of humor. I think she's so dang funny!! I think there is so much talent and creativity across the board on The Auspicious Life. Go take a look!! 

2The Real Deal - authenticity

This was honestly a difficult one. I think Collette from Statements in Fashion is A-MAZING, and know she deserves one of these awards, I just wasn't sure which. I mean, she's a newbie, she's helpful, she's connected, she has fab style... Colette, you rock! But I have to say that although all the above are true, she's truly authentic. I especially think of her recent mentions of her weight loss success story! She shared it here and more here, and has now started a group of fashion/beauty bloggers who are fighting the same battle. She's a truly inspiring woman through sharing her true story!

3. Spark Notes - most helpful
I couldn't choose one for this...

4. Newbie - best blogger less than a year old

This is Jessica from Monster Cakes. Her blog is a "newbie" blog, and absolutely brilliant! First off, isn't she just darling!?? Honestly. She's got a cute, tomboy chic style. It's so original and unique and fashionable, of course!! She takes great photos and has fun writing skills as well. I also like the personal touches she adds with bits about her life. I enjoy posts about family and personal life... it makes you feel more connected. 
5. Can You Hear Me Now - most connected
For this one I also wanted to pick Collette from Statements in Fashion, or Katy from ModlyChic, but I thought #2 & #7 were better fits for them respectively. :)

   6. If I had a Hammer - best DIY

Have you read Homemade By Monica?? She's not in FBFF, but Monica and I actually met through church back in college. I remember always seeing her as a very stylish woman. Well she has a blog now and it's mostly DIY, baking/cooking, home decor and style. She has really fabulous holiday themed crafts like this and this. Some recipes one here. And gift ideas like this. Some "Look of the Day" posts like this. And she's having a baby any day now, so recent posts often have baby things she's working on. Go check her out 'cause she's amazing!!

7Tribe Leader - blogger who leads others and brings bloggers together

   I chose Katy, from ModlyChic as the Tribe Leader. Katy profiles a different blogger weekly, on Mondays. I really enjoy this and have found some of my favorite blogs through those posts! Now I honestly make sure to check her blog on Mondays to see who's profiled!
Katy is also the founder of Fashion/Beauty Friend Fridays!!! I was so blessed to find her blog and become a member of FBFF early on in my blogging. It really drew me into the community and connected me instantly with many other bloggers. I really enjoy the diversity, too. There are members from so many different regions, backgrounds, styles, and cultures. Thank you, Katy!!

8. Practically Perfect - most fashionable

 Kristina from PrettyShinySparkly is hands down, my most fashionable nomination! I love her looks!! She is always looking fierce from head to toe! I love how she always adds some kind of glam. You know, something sparkly, lacy, fur, etc. Kristina, you're my style hero!

9. Paint by Numbers - best beauty blogger Honestly, I don't read any beauty blogs regularly enough to feel comfortable voting on this one.
10. Renaissance Woman - best all around blogger- fashion, beauty,  lifestyle
I didn't have a good fit for this one either. sorry!

This post was SO MUCH FUN!! I just wish I could have picked 2 or 3 for each category... I had none for a couple and a handful for a couple. It's tough to choose between a pool of so many beautifully skilled and stylish bloggers! Way to go, EVERYONE!!! :)

Don't forget to come back soon for the very first 
Be Fit | Live Well | Have Fun post!!!
