Wednesday Roundup + Awards

(Images via 1, 2)

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I feel like since going on vacation last week that I've completely fallen behind in keeping up everything. Don't you just hate that feeling?! So, today I decided to do a round up post and try to get everything back in order. Here's hoping it actually works!


1. Blog Love

First of all, I have two awards to pass along to some very deserving ladies. These are long, long overdue and I do hope that you'll be gracious enough to accept them and pass them on in a much more timely manner ;)

The first award I want to bestow is the Stylish Blogger award, given to me by Lavender & Lilies and The Pink Zebra. Thank you ladies so, so much!

Tatiana at Love, Life, Lace
Lindsey at Be Pretty
Casie at Whipped Style

The second award came from my sweet Kori at Blonde Episodes. She creates the most lovely awards and this is one she gave me a while back. I'm passing it on to some new (to me) blogs that I'm completely smitten with!

Lauren at Midwestern Chic
Patterson at Pretty Stuff


2. Blog of the Week

Atlantic-Pacific is a fabulous fashion blog that I discovered thanks to my friend Caitlin. Blair has the most fantastic sense of style and will inspire your everyday looks with the first click over to her blog. She's so stylish, in fact, that Miss Inslee just created a beautiful series of drawings inspired by her unique style (seen above).
Cheers to you Miss Blair! xo


3. Links that I'm Loving

Over the past couple weeks I've discovered some new sites, blogs, and tumblrs that I just have to share with you- I would feel completely guilty not to!

Matchbook Mag's Daily Spark


4. Novel Release Blog Party

Finally, I would like to share some wonderful news with you all. Kori from Blonde Episodes is celebrating the release of her first novel, Murder on the Boulevard, on Friday! Daphne and I decided to host a Blog Release Party for her. I will provide the amazon link to purchase the EBook on Friday. All you have to do is grab the button below and add it to your post on Friday! We may even have a link up, too!

Please join us in sending well-wishes to Kori for boundless success!
