The Long Good-Bye

Only 3 days until I’ll shut down my computer and dedicate my life to lying at the swimming-pool, drinking campari, eating loads of pasta and being as lazy as can be. But before I go I’ve got a few things to do…

A looong time ago the beautiful, talented and witty
Dusk gave me 'The I ♥ Your Blog' award which just asks you to tag 15 other bloggers. So here goes…

Chai, Cinnamon & Couture
Leia’s Delights
Dancing Branflakes
Red Vines for Breakfast
Intro to My Life
Classic Copenhagen
Cindy Whitehead
The Alternative Wife
One Crafty Fox
The Fabulous Life of Not So Rich and Famous
Sogni e Sorrisi
Wedding on the Cards

If you are accepting the award please copy the 'I ♥ Your Blog' badge (you find it by clicking on 'Read more' at the end of the post) onto your site and pass it on to 15 other bloggers.

I also received the 'Blog ♥ Award' from the delightful
Poppies and Sunshine, which I ought to pass on to 5 other bloggers. The award goes to:

Little Blue Deer
In Sniff’s Choos

Please copy the 'Blog ♥ Award' badge (you find it by clicking on 'Read more' at the end of the post) onto your site and pass it on to 5 other bloggers.

Poppies and Sunshine was so kind to also pass on the the 'Fashion Blogger Award' to me. Thank you so much! This award comes with a few questions:

Give your best style advice:
1) Know your own body. What might look good on your best friend (or beware, a celebrity) might not be the best for yourself. For example, I love wide legged sailor trousers, but I just look ridicicolous in them.

2) No matter what’s your figure, your age, your surroundings… Have fun!

Show us your go-to outfit(s):
(Did I say
a dress?) Go-to could also be the combination of skirt, shirt/blouse and high heels (as shown above).

Show us what you can't live without right now (fashion-wise):
Underwear? A bag? I guess in the end it must be my camera – to document it all.

And the Fashion Blogger Award goes to:

Jolie Laide
Buckets and Spades
The Five Senses
Fashion Butter

Again, if you accept the award please copy the badge (you find it by clicking on 'Read more' at the end of the post) onto your site and pass it on to 4 other bloggers.

There are so many other blogs and bloggers who make my day, and please everyone who might not be named here, feel included! (Will need more awards, for sure...)

skirt: chanel, blouse: marc aurel, shoes: russell & bromley, bag: diy

Maddy said...

You're a girl after my own heart with your camera must have :) Enjoy the time off!! I wish my blog time off was dedicated to lounging around a pool, but unfortunately, it was more about getting the pile of dirty laundry done...*sigh*

Your Olympus is turning me green with envy. Any ideas where i can get my mitts on a second hand orphan?
