Awards Season...well kinda!

The gorgeous Amy over at Brushed Satin who blogs about everything chic from Banana Bread to Bar Carts recently awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award. It was a such a delight and was impeccably timed as I was having one of those days where you wonder if you are on the right track in your life. The Award reaffirmed to me that you should always go with what you passionate about! So here goes, I am going to share with you 7 things about myself then hand the torch on to 10 stylish Blogs.

Little things about me, that make me, well, me:
I have five weaknesses; brownies, Veuve Cliquot, reality TV shows, magazines and Design and Décor books – I spend a small fortune one all of these!
I can never stop at one and I like them warm with a little bit of vanilla ice-cream!
Need I say more?!
Seriously, what's not to love about LC?!
This is just some of my stacks of mags!
More where this came from! (I mean the books, not the bubbles!)

On a recent trip to Italy I ate 11 flavours of gelato in one day (not sure I should be sharing that?)

My 7 year old beats me at chess…every time!
Mr. 7 is such a cutie and quite the charmer! (Not to mention pulling off Burberry in a way I never could!)

I dream of the life of a ‘ParDon’, one that lives between Paris and London...a girl's gotta have a dream right...

As well as my 9-5 job in advertising, I am a Stylist and Decorator and I’ll know that I have made it when I have my work featured in Elle Décor, Marie Claire Maison, Inside Out and Living etc.

This is a behind the scenes shot (aka Hipstamatic shot), from a little shoot I did recently)

I love inspirational sayings.
It hard to decide on a favourite but I have loved this one, from Goethe, since I was 14 years old.

I am a night owl, this is when I love blogging, creating, working etc.

So that's a little about me, now for the Stylish Blog Award Winners, that carry on the flame in this little loving Blogging Universe that I so love being a part of. Thanks to all those that read and follow and comment, it is such a joy to have you in my circle of 'blog friends':
