Classic Beauty Blog Award

Thanks to Ask Erena for giving me the wonderful Classic Beauty Blog Award!!  I love vintage and old Hollywood glamour so this award fits me well. 
 
 

The rules

  • Thank and link back to the person who awarded you 
  • Write 7 random things about yourself 
  • Spread the love to 15 other bloggers 

 

1. I love the idea of recycling and reusing products. Rustic and handmade products have a special place in my heart. Just take a look at Jason Wu’s Newyork office below. Don’t you just love the newspaper wallpaper idea, raw rustic table and glass bulb chandelier?  This would make a great DIY project. What do you think?

2. I love aquariums and sea inspired trends. I can’t wait for all the sea textures that are on trend for this Spring and Summer. Click here to see my post on this trend.

 

 

3. I love shopping etsy and I love the idea of supporting small businesses, especially women owned ones.

 

 

4. I love it when I get to be myself and make my own decisions. Having a blog has allowed me to be this way. When I worked at this company, I didn’t really care for their products but I still had to give an opinion and work around it. We had 40% discounts and I hardly saw any of my colleagues buying anything from the company. Isn’t that weird? I understand not everybody gets to work at Chanel but I think people should at least like the products they are working on.

 

 

5. I love DIY products. Right now, I am working on a braided snood scarf just like the one in the picture below.  If you need instructions, I’ll be happy to post it for you. I think that knitting is not only fun but also therapeutic. This is one hobby that everybody should try.

6. I prefer cold weather to hot one. Most people think I am crazy and don’t usually tend to agree with me. 

 

 

7. I really love the Jason Wu collection for Target I have seen so far. This is probably the collaboration that I am really excited enough to shell out money on. The designs are so ladylike chic and not overdone. Hope they look like that in real. Just take a look at the cat scarf, pastel floral bag, raffia clutch and nautical dress in the below pictures. Don’t you just love them?

I would love to pass this award on to all my followers. I have been inspired and motivated by many blogs and bloggers so it’s hard for me to choose just 15.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 🙂

    Congratulations on your award!!! So deserving. I think it’s cute. I can’t wait for the Jason Wu Target Collection in February. I was excited about the glimpses and then when I saw the entire collection my mouth hit the floor. I think Etsy is the best! 😀

    Congratulations!
    Great post,too! I am excited for the Jason Wu Target Collection. I hope the same thing doesn’t happen like when Missoni came to Target. You couldn’t buy anything! That blue dress has my name on it.
    Love the quote by Karl! So true.

      I know. I like shopping in peace so I hate all the madness. Hope Target handles it better this time. 🙂

    Congrats for the award!! And I am excited about Jason Wu for Target myself! So far loved all the pieces.
    BTW, this wallpaper must be a ‘newspaper print’ wall paper because I think real newspaper DIY wallpaper will get pale after a while? But love the organic look and feel of it!

  10. January 16, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    arggh..I guess my previoous comment went in a black hole!
    BTW, I love jason Wu for Target – excited about all the pieces!
    And this wallpaper looks the newspaper print, the DIY real newspaper wallpaper made wallpaper will get pale and brittle after some time – I think? But love the organic look of it!
