Paying it Forward

Hi friends, happy Monday! Last week while I was running round New York, my sweet and stylish friend Pam generously passed along the "The Stylish Blogger Award" to me. Now that I'm back at home and (slightly) organized, it's time for me to pay it forward...

According to the rules, you list seven things about yourself and name 10 of your favorite recently discovered blogs... hmmm.... here goes:

The harder part is limiting my favorite recently discovered blogs to 10... there are so many, but I guess I have to play by the rules! Here are just some of my current newish favorites, and why I love visiting them.

The Zhush - Her "Random Chanel Moments" always make my day.
Quintessence - I always learn something reading her detailed posts on all sorts of wonderful things from classic movies to wine.
A Perfect Gray - Perfectly beautiful.
Greige- Breathtaking images and an unfinished aesthetic similar to my own.
Oh Joy!- All kinds of fantastic finds, plus a joyful outlook.
A Country Farmhouse- My most recent read, thanks to PVE. Trina, the delightful author just had twins!
My French Country Home - In a parallel universe, I want to be Sharon...
La Dolce Vita - The very stylish Paloma always inspires--she left a career as a Spanish teacher to pursue her passion for interiors, travel, and fashion, and will soon launch High Gloss-- I can't wait!
Pure Style Home- Another very recent discovery, Lauren is adorable and I love her descriptions of the design process and how she delivers beautiful spaces to her clients.
What Feeds My Soul - Amy and I have know each other for years now, but I love that through her blog, I learn something new about her with every post!

Okay, that's 10. Thanks to these stylish bloggers for the inspiration they deliver.
