A Round of BIG Thanks...

Before I slowly go back to regular blogging and blog-stalking, I would first like to make a round of thanks and hugz to a few friends here:

* * * * *

Thank you Deanne of Dream Sequins for this "Divine" blog award!
Deanne has the most enviable job during the New York Fashion Week as she got to cover a lot of the fashion shows that we could only dream of going. She tirelessly wrote about it from all angles: backstage, street style and the runway!
Go head to her blog for a healthy dose of anything fashion including blogger profiles, designer profiles and fashion ideas! Just one caution: it's highly addicting!!

* * * * *

A round of thanks as well to Cheryl of "The Adventures of Pinay Neska" for this blog award! I will be forever jealous of her for simply living in the country that I've been dying to visit for a few years now, attempted to and failed three times! If you want a virtual tour of Spain, head over to her blog now!!

* * * * *
I hereby pass these awards to these bloggers I've virtually met recently and whose blogs are my regular reads!

The fashion blogosphere's very own Shakespeare, Antoine of
Florilege d'esthete

The ladyI dubbed "The Young Glamourai", Christen of La Rue Neuve.

My dear little "virtual" little sister whom I wish to meet someday, Patty Ann of AlphaBeta Chic

My inspiration for any gravity-defying stunts, Tiffany of Style Sophisticate


The lady I met by following a comment from the Sartorialist who turned out to be one of the sweetest bloggers around here and whose genuine and encouraging comments & posts never fail to make my day, Carrie of Life or Something Like It

* * * * *

I was the lucky winner of Nini's Emma Carroll earrings giveaway last week!! I haven't had a chance to incorporate it in my outfits yet but I will soon. Nini, thanks a bunch!! The card you sent with the earrings is just as special to me. You are sweet fashionista, Nini and we all love you for that!

* * * * *

Luck and all things chic probably come in pairs coz I was told this evening that I am also the winner of Thumbelina's Chicdowntown LNA leggins giveaway!! Thank you Thumbelina, thank you Chicdowntown!!

If you want to win one of these, another lovely blogger, Eden of Chic in the Tropics, is also giving one of these away!

* * * * *

Thank you Maria of Chicisimo for featuring me in my school girl outfit! I really didn't think anyone would take this outfit seriously to feature it anywhere!

* * * * *

And lastly, thanks to all my friends who donated to the clothing drive for the the typhoon victims in Manila. All in all we collected 120 shirts & tops, 27 jeans, 21 skirts, 16 baby clothes, 2 pairs of shoes and 2 bags of maternity and baby stuff that I no longer was able to count! Some friends even gave stylish clothes that still got tags on them! It will surely make a few ladies happy! Who said you can't be stylish just because you're in an evacuation center?!

  10. Grace, thank you so much for the award and for the shout out! It really means a lot to me. I still find it hard to believe that you stumbled across my blog via the Sartorialist. It's been a pleasure getting to know you through blogging and I always enjoy reading your blog. You're a sweet woman, Grace and you've been so kind and supportive of my blog, me moving to Australia, and my relationship with my boyfriend. Thank you for taking an interest in my blog and for following me. I appreciate it greatly!

    Also, I'm glad to hear that Kat is doing well. I can understand why she's taking this break. School is important and blogging can take up a lot of time. If you talk to her, let her know I wish her well in school.

    Did I tell you I tried some Tim Tam cookies. They're great! I'm gonna buy more and I think I'm gonna bring some home for my family as well. I still want to try vegemite but I'm a little scared cause I'm expecting it to taste terrible.

    I don't know why I've never asked but when were you in Australia? You seem to know so much about it and it's been great talking to you about my experience cause you're the only person who recommends things which I really appreciate it.

    I also want to say that I think it's great that your friends pulled their efforts together to donate clothing for the Manila tragedy. Your help will go a long way. Hope your week is off to a good start, Grace.

    All the best,

  11. grace- it's so nice of you and your friends to give those goodies
    to our fellow pinoys who were affected by the typhoon.
    i wish you more blessings to come your way so you could
    always share whatever you have.
    God bless you.

  12. That's what I'm doing! We're doing a clothing drive and anything that can be sent over :( It's so sad but our org is trying to help!

    Congrats on the award, Grace!
