exciting news & the liebster award

The past week has been quite the eventful one! The big news: my long time boyfriend of 5+ years proposed! I'm now an engaged girl - let the fun, festivities, and wedding planning begin!

Secondly, I was beyond thrilled that a few fellow bloggers nominated me for the Liebster award. I would like to extend a huge thank you to Katie, Ashley, and Jessica. It means so much to have the support of other bloggers out there. Now it's my turn to share my favorite up and coming blogs.
Without further a do (and in no particular order)...

1. Leopard and Lavender - Kelli not only has awesome, original posts with great photos, she's also a fabulous writer. I love her down to earth attitude and writing style.

2. Side Smile Style - Ashley has a fabulous sense of style and the most adorable accessories. She isn't afraid to try different styles and does a great job of incorporating designer pieces with everyday adorable items.

3. Confessions of the Glitterati - Ashley & Ally are two gorgeous blonde bffs with a great sense of style and an amazing Jcrew wardrobe (that I'm slightly jealous of). I love that you can tell these two are having tons of fun with their blog.

4. Chill Air & Perfume - Hannah, a Boston native has a laid back, fun style. This girl pulls off one adorable outfit after another and lucky for us she documents and shares them.

5. A Southern Drawl - Grace always has fabulous photos and personality really shines through in every post.

Hope you all have a chance to check out these fabulous up and coming blogs!

And the last exciting thing - I've reached 100 followers -  Thank you for following all my posts, leaving your awesome comments, and being so supportive!
