thank you!

Nic Nic and Chyi aka Chi were both generous enough to nominate me for one of their awards! Thank you so much! :)

Soooo....according to the rules I get to name some more inspiring, wonderful people :)

Blogger Premio 2008

To whomever I gave an award to, you must give the award to 7 deserving people.

Here are the rules to follow:
1) When received, you may post the premio to your blog.
2) Link to the blogger you received it from.
3) Give it to 7 blogs
4) Link to those 7 blogs
5) Leave those seven bloggers a comment about receiving the brilliant premio.

[ alphabetical order, if anyone's wondering :) ]

I started lurking around her blog last year after seeing her blog address on her profile. I love her sense of humour and her artwork! She writes the most amusing entries ever, and her cartoons totally brighten up my day.

The mineral makeup queen :P She knows so much about so many brands, if you need any help with choosing between the 10000001 mineral makeup companies, she's your girl! Not only that, she can pull off just about any colour for her looks, plus she does amazingly detailed and honest product reviews.

I love her makeup style, she's unafraid to use colours but does it subtly. Her FOTD posts on ABB has definitely influenced the looks that I do :)

I don't know how she does it, but her posts are addictive :) Everytime she updates I have to read it right away no matter how busy I am :P She always gives such helpful replies to questions and comments too!

Petitebelle aka Audrie
Her blog touches on so many different brands besides MAC, and the reviews and swatches always raise my interest in trying them! But I also like that she posts on clothing hauls because it inspires me to spend less on makeup and more on updating my wardrobe :)

What can I say? She pulls off just about any colour combo beautifully. Whenever I'm stuck in a rut, looking through her old fotds always gets me out of it. Definitely a big influence for me when I was a makeup noob :)

I love her style especially when she dresses up for J-rock concerts! I'd love to see her post even more because she does such sultry smoky looks that I can't seem to achieve yet my own :S

and ....some Honourable mentions even though these people don't blog anymore (if they do, let me know please so I can go stalk them :P )

Chel (former writer on Asian Beauty Blog and
- Another major influence from my noob days :P

Rolos (former writer on Asian Beauty Blog)
- without her, I would NEVER have given blue eyeshadow a chance. Now I just can't get away from blue...everytime I go makeup shopping I'm always attracted to the blue colours the most :P

I wish I could mention more, as it really is quite hard trying to narrow down people to thank. At least everyday, I read something that inspires me, or I receive a comment that makes bloggging seem worthwhile. Picking a few seems so unfair :( Sooooo keep in mind I love all of you readers :) Without you there would be no reason for me to blog. And if I don't blog, I'd be bored out of my mind :P But seriously, I'm so touched sometimes by the people that leave me kind words on my rants, it really does make me feel a lot less alone. Whether you're a fellow blogger or reader, I'm glad to have known each one of you, and I sincerely thank you all :)

Great awards given! I love stephy's vids but she's not blogging as often anymore. Sad.

Btw, I'm really glad I found all you beauty bloggers.. =)

Thanks for the award! You have been awarded as well, although I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tag back, but who cares! I'm glad that we have all moved on from ABB to form an even better community of bloggers that help and support each other. If you ever need someone to talk to about anything I'm here :)

I can't believe you nominated me! Totally unexpected. I always feel like I'm so out of the ABB blogger loop. I don't even know enough beauty bloggers to pick from, let alone nominate. Haha, so sad. Oh well, thanks again! I'll try and post more, I seriously was starting to think not a lot of people liked my FOTDs, but I'll keep doing it, even if it's just for you. Oh! And guess what? I'm going to another concert! 3 days worth of crazy clothes and goth eyeliner to fill your cup!

oh and those shiseido hydro-powder eyeshadows below look GORGEOUS on you. too bad i have oily lids. :( anything creamy usually creases on me. :*( *sigh*

jing said...

classic look on that new profile pic! is it just me, but you look so much younger in it?

i've been following all your nominees since last year.. when abb first started with the new theme of members ' blog section. well, i never saw nicnic and christiana there.. but it seems like i've been lurking in their blog about as long as abb. where did rolos go? i used to think blue shadow is so hard to pull off, but when i saw rolos fotd, it was really inspiring. she looked hot in those shades! i can write a whole entry here for the rest of the ladies.. but i guess i'll do my own entry on this topic soon.
