I Like You, A Lot!

So I wasn't going to do this weeks FBFF Blog Awards because I just felt I was too new to the blog world and I didn't want to single anyone out. But after reading countless new blogs today and seeing who everyone picked I felt compelled to share. I had a great time browsing so many new blogs! So note, if I didn't put you on here, just know I am choosing 10 out of like 50 daily reads and I really do like you all! 

1. Creative Juices - most creative 
Kristine. Or Polly. I give this girl my vote because the outfits she puts together I would never think of in a million years and she pulls them off, flawlessly! 

2. The Real Deal - authenticity 
The Daybook. Sydney is the real deal. She has her own sense of fashion, her own voice, and a big heart and puts it all out there day after day for everyone to read. Plus her hubby posts too, so you really get to peek in on their life.

3. Spark Notes - most helpful 
Clothed Much. I read Elaine's tutorials time after time again before I really gave in and started this blog. Not to mention she always replies back and answers any question you may have. She is stylish, smart and nice. Triple threat!

4. Newbie - best blogger less than a year old 
Dwelling & Telling. I only recently found Linley's blog but I already feel like she is a long lost friend. She loves to rock the same uniform I do (skinny jeans and boots!) and has this charming accent that I now hear when I read about her life. 

5. Can You Hear Me Now - most connected 
I want to nominate both gals behind the Everybody, Everywhere blog. In just a few short months people are glued to their computer screen waiting to see what the next challenge is going to be. Okay, that might just be me, but their following on their personal blogs and the EBEW is incredible!

6. If I had a Hammer - best DIY 
Oh Happy Day! Jordan is a woman after my own heart. Lovely little family, endless style, and blogs the best party projects that make me envious that I don't have enough friends to copy these parties and make them my own. Her blog is endlessly inspiring!

7. Tribe Leader - blogger who leads others and brings bloggers together 
Kendi Everyday. 30 for 30. So many gals have gotten in on this it is incredible to see how big of a following she has. I refer to her as Mama Kendi in my head because I feel like she is the gal we all look too for style advice. I think if I ran into her in real life, I might even call her that. 

8. Practically Perfect - most fashionable 
Cupcakes and Cashmere. Emily's is a blog I found and was instantly pouring through her archives for days! I feel like she just walked out of a fashion magazine every time she posts her outfits. And I feel a little drool coming on when I see her delicious desserts!

9. Paint by Numbers - best beauty blogger 
I don't read any specific beauty blogs so I cant really nominate anything here. Any suggestions?

10. Renaissance Woman - best all around blogger, fashion, beauty, lifestyle 
It is kind of a double whammy but this one has to go to Sydney. Her blog and her down to earth vibe really inspired me to create my own and I will be forever grateful for that inspiration!
