This blog has become the place where tags go to die. Gorgeous bloggers have been generously including me in tags and giving me awards since January, and I have failed to do the right thing and pass the tags/awards along. It’s not that I don’t appreciate such things. I do! But I ran out of random facts to share about myself in 2008.
To make up for this egregious behavior, I have created the Wendy Brandes Seal of Approval. * That’s my Wildflower earring in the middle.
I hereby present my personal seal of approval to everyone who tagged or awarded me, whether or not they’re still in the blogging biz. The following people may display this not-at-all-sought-after honor on their blogs or tattoo it over their hearts or disregard it entirely:
- Beth at a Cup of Coffey
- Tessa Scoffs
- Tor of Fabfrocks
- Savvy Gal
- The Shoe Girl
- The Likkle Girl Who Wurves Pwetty Things
- Pretty Face
- Chic Banana
- The Fashion Loving Stylist
- Nina from Five Points
- Sharon Rose
- Solo Lisa
- Sher from Fashion After Forty
- Dream Sequins
Did I miss anyone? Speak up! Or just award it to yourself. No need to wait for me. Oh, and don’t forget to read this.
*ENC did the Photoshop work, as always.
UPDATED TO ADD: Someone else who gets my seal of approval is gorgeous blogger Karen of Of a Certain Age. We had dinner in L.A. last night with the husbands. Believe it or not, Karen is even more glamorous in person than in her blog pictures. She’s also generous, as she bestowed an adorable Isabella Fiore purse on me. (Separate purse post to come!) Much to my amusement, Karen was one of those people who expect a more dramatic voice from me. If you’re planning on meeting me, I warn you to read the last paragraph of this post in order to avoid disappointment/shock.
I had a great time talking to Karen’s handsome Norwegian husband Kjell about his homeland.A I visited Norway in 2007 and I have been pining for the fjords ever since. Now I am really desperate to go back. That might take me a while. Hopefully, before then, Karen will come visit me in New York. I’m going to try to develop a gravelly voice by then just to astonish her.
