FBFF Blog Awards

It's Friday!  And that means it's time for a FBFF post.

Today, we FBFF members were charged with nominating one blogger for each of the categories below and explaining why we nominated them.  The top five nominees from each category will be selected as finalists and the awards will be opened up to a public vote.

Below are my nominations, but I have to say that I’m more excited to see everyone else’s than I was to do my own.

1. Creative Juices - most creative

Audi from Fashion for Nerds has an extremely creative sense of style.  From her color pairings to her layers, she is constantly coming up with ideas that I would never have thought of, but happily to try incorporate into my own style.

2. The Real Deal – authenticity

Allison from Tall Girl Blogging.  I first visited her blog because she is tall, but I became a follower because she is remarkably real.  Her blog has a very personal feel and I never feel like she’s trying to be something she’s not. 

3. Spark Notes - most helpful

Sal from Already Pretty.  Whether it’s her posts or guest posts that she puts together, you can learn pretty much anything from Sal.  Wearing layers, wearing color, wearing belts, you name it, Sal has great advice on her blog about it.  She also has her ‘Lovely Links’ posts, which provide links to additional helpful posts on other blogs.

4. Newbie - best blogger less than a year old

Jodi from Day 2 Day Wear – I love her blog.  She seems to really enjoy life and that comes across in her blog.  She has a definite sense of joie de vivre that I appreciate immensely.

5. Can You Hear Me Now - most connected

I think Jessica, of What I Wore, is probably the most connected blogger I know.

6. If I had a Hammer - best DIY

Erica from psimadethis is awesome.  She can make anything and makes it look as though I, without a single creative bone in my body, would also be able to successfully do-it-myself.

7. Tribe Leader - blogger who leads others and brings bloggers together

Katy from Modly Chic.  These Friend Friday Questions, but also the Blogger Profiles have been very helpful for me, as a new blogger.  Both have helped me discover wonderful new blogs to read and I’ve learned a lot from the FBFF Google Group discussions.

8. Practically Perfect - most fashionable

This was tough for me because there are so many stylish bloggers out there, but I’m going to go with Christine of My Style Pill.  She is fashionable, but in a way that still feels accessible to me.

9. Paint by Numbers - best beauty blogger

I’m not a beauty girl, so I don’t follow or read any beauty blogs.  I'm not saying I shouldn't, I'm just saying I don't. 

10. Renaissance Woman - best all around blogger, fashion, beauty, lifestyle

I’m going to have to go with Maegan from … Love, Maegan on this one.  She has a ton of DIY projects (everything from bags to necklaces to feather skirts) and also posts about fashion, posts hair-style and make-up how-tos and home decorating ideas and projects.

As always, thank you to Katy at Modly Chic for putting these together.

Happy Friday, All!
