I haven’t participated in Friend Friday all this month because I’ve been so swamped with the event coverage for NYFW. I was super excited when I revisited the email listing the questions for this week.
We’re doing our very own FBFF Blog Awards, thanks to our FBFF bloggerista Courtney. I’ve nominated one blogger for each of the categories below and explained why. The bosses over at FBFF will tally up all the responses and then list the top five bloggers named in each category. Those finalists will then be opened up to a public vote over the next couple of weeks.
And the nominees are…
1. Creative Juices – most creative
I love visiting Mattieologie.com. You can always count on Mattie to have some cool really clean graphics. And who doesn’t like pictures.
2. The Real Deal – authenticity
I started following Gabi of Young Fat and Fabulous when she was nominated for MTV’s Twitter Jockey. I’ve only met her once at the OneStopPlus.com fashion show but she’s really my style bff in my mind. She’s really comfortable in her skin and she gives you every piece of her in each blog post.
3. Spark Notes – most helpful
Ahh there are so many amazing things I can say about V of Grit&Glamour but I’ve already said them. Just know as a blogger if you ever have a question on how to do .. anything related to blogging – Ask V. (If you want to know how to join FBFF see V’s latest “how to”)
4. Newbie – best blogger less than a year old
I first really wanted to nominate myself but that seemed .. vain. So I opted for someone that I have shared my “newbie” crown with since the beginning. Kee of iStyleLikeMe has been by my side since I started. She’s my go to person for a much needed honest opinion. Kee has grown with me and has some amazing changes in stores. I cannot wait to be able to say “I knew, I knew”, and brag with her about her new blog venture.
5. Can You Hear Me Now – most connected
I can’t even remember how I found Christina of Love Brown Sugar but she’s been a great inspiration in my blog experience. She’s worked for a few major publications and you can find her at any event where the “who’s who” is attending.
6. If I had a Hammer – best DIY
I don’t really follow DIY blogs because I find an amazing joy in buying things than making them. But when I saw this category I instantly thought of PS I Made This. I applaud Erica for her creativity and her patience. I wonder how much she’s saved from making stuff?
7. Tribe Leader – blogger who leads others and brings bloggers together
Duh, Katy of Modly Chic is the reason why we do anything over at FBFF. So naturally she’s the Tribe Leader. I came into FBFF not expecting anything and I totally have gained a new fam of fab bloggers. We chat all day (literally) about everything and anything.
8. Practically Perfect – most fashionable
I will say I am quite green about her effortless style. And her blog has crazy swag too. Her new blog design fits her perfectly. Jinna of Grease&Glamour was one of the top 10 finalist in the FTF Sunglass Hut competition. I was green about that too.
9. Paint by Numbers – best beauty blogger
Always in a gorgeous red lip, Felicia of This That Beauty has quickly climbed to the top of the best beauty blogger ladder. Now freelancing for several publications she’s definitely a beauty blogger to watch for.
10. Renaissance Woman – best all around blogger, fashion, beauty, lifestyle.
Mattie of Mattieologie was also in the FTB Sunglass Hut Competition as one of the final 10. I followed her through the competition and rooted for her too. We became tweethearts and I can’t wait to finally meet her in person.
Welp! There’s my list. Good luck to you all.
