More awards!

A few more awards came my way in June and July, and it’s about time I posted about them...

Proximidade Award button

Many thanks again to Ladybug from Escape in a Book, Vanessa from Today’s Adventure and Linda from Better with Books, who all awarded me the Proximidade Award in June. I really appreciate it!
This award invests and believes in proximity—nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award.
It’s always hard to decide who to give awards to as there are so many great blogs out there... I’m going to pass on this award to eight relatively new-to-me bloggers:
Kreative Blogger Award button

Thank you to Cindy at Cindy’s Love of Books, who awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award. To accept this award, bloggers are asked to make a list of seven favourite things and then pass on the award to seven other bloggers.

First, seven things I love:
  1. dark chocolate with ginger
  2. Häagen Dazs Mayan chocolate ice cream
  3. naps
  4. the Atlantic Ocean
  5. lychee martinis
  6. Gosford Park
  7. raclette
I want to pass on this award to seven creative bloggers who have great blog designs:
I’m really tired of my blog’s generic look and I’m pining for three columns, buttons at the top of the page and a unique look... Until I can figure out how to do that (or pay someone to do it for me), I visit these blogs and drool (and of course they have great content too)!


  1. Awww thank you so much for my award! And if you are really interested in paying someone to do your blog send me an email. I did everything in mine :)

  8. Well thank you so much!

    And here's a little tip for you about changing your blog. First, if you want to have someone do it for you, I have a bloggy friend who does a great job and is very very reasonable price-wise. You can pick and choose how much you want to pay. Here is the link:

    She also has a blogging tip blog that will give you the tools or resources to do it yourself if that is something you are comfortable with. Here is the link to that blog:

    Have fun with it ... I love playing with my blog look!
