Versatile Blogger Award: 7 Random Facts About Moi!

I haven’t participated in one of these Tags / Awards before; but when one of my favorite people in the blogosphere, Carrie of Couture Carrie, nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award last week, I figured there was no time like the present. So…thank you so much to Carrie for the nomination; and now it’s my turn. Check out 7 Random Facts About Moi below; then see who I’ve nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award / Tag!

1. Blake Lively is my ultimate fashion icon. I love her personal style; as well as that of her Gossip Girl and Savages alter egos – Serena van der Woodsen and O.

2. I own over 75 bottles of nail polish; and my collection literally grows every week. Regardless, my absolute favorite nail color is mint – I own over 15 variations of the shade, and am currently wearing my latest mint mani acquisition – Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Green with Envy.

3. My current style obsession is colored super skinny jeans. I just ordered a Royal Blue pair that I plan to wear with towering skin-toned wedges.

4. I am a HUGE bookworm. I read multiple books per week; and am currently re-reading J.K. Rowling’s entire Harry Potter series in honor of Harry’s birthday on July 31. Yes, I just totally waved my nerd flag with that fact!

5. Fall fashion is my favorite because it involves chunky sweaters, skinny jeans, and my personal number one…BOOTS!

6. I absolutely adore fashion illustrations. My favorite fashion illustrator is Izak Zenou (he does the art for Bendels), who is a master at capturing whimsy. If you follow me on Instagram @cafefashionista, you may have seen some of Izak’s work in the background of my pictures.

7. One of my biggest inspirations is Carrie Bradshaw (or her creator, Candace Bushnell). Whenever she sits down at her laptop to work on her column, posing relationship questions, I can’t explain why…I just want to be her. Love!

I love that you did this! What's so funny is that I totally thought blogger awards had died. I think you have just revived them!

Natasha Hollerup said...

Carrie Bradshaw is one of my go-to favorite icons as well. She was living my dream, with the exception of her boyfriends.

Yay I am so excited that you did my tag, darling - thanks for the mention!
Love your facts, especially about the nail polish collection!


Sherin said...

It's great to get to know you a bit more. I love that you own so many nail polishes, and I'm a massive Harry Potter fan too!

Thank you so much for nominating me. I can't wait to share some facts about myself too.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I love this post from you! It's always a treat to read more personal things about you!

I always told you you remind me of Carrie Bradshaw! Superb writing for starters :)

I LOVE fashion illustrations too! I wish they were more present in my life. They're so neat.

Your colored jeans today on instagram are so cute! And look great with you gams. Mine wouldn't look nearly as cute.

I love fall too- mainly because I love huge, oversized, poncho sweaters- the BEST!

Blake Lively is gorgeous- though I think I might have to hate her now that she's with Ryan (swoooon!).

But most of all- LOVE your Harry Potter reread in honor of his birthday! hahahah, that is so cute, I adore it so much.

Thank you for the tag! Have a great weekend!!!

I love Izxak Zenou as well! I stumbled upon a sale on Totsy of different accessories, etc. with his illustrations on them. I scored a water bottle for my fashionista daughter, a mug, a travel mug, and several tote bags.

I'm amazed at how much we have in common stylistically-I love blake, boots, polish, and carrie bradshaw too! Doesn't suck about GG being done after the next season? I have no idea what show can replace that dose of fabulous fashion and drama :(
