SA Blog awards…

SA Blog awards…

Hi friends, happy Friday to you! Yes, today’s post is all about blatant self promotion, I can’t deny it! As you might know by now, I’m a finalist in the SA Blog Awards (which is quite a big thing over here!) and originally I was quite happy to just tell you about it and see how many votes I got and hope for the best…
But since then I’ve found out that many other blogs are going on major campaigns to get blog votes and so I thought I’d better get going too. I’m gathering that since you’re already visiting me here, you already know and LOVE my blog and would be happy to VOTE for me, right?! Well, please do, in fact you can vote every 24 hours until next Friday. Just follow this link, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and fill in your email address and the code. Or you can click on the button on my sidebar. So easy and I’ll love you forever!

And now for some eye candy, have you seen Anthropologie’s latest catalogue? Here are some of my favourite snippets from it, think tartans, leather belts, chunky knits and tights. How do they manage to make me wish it was Fall here when I’m an out and out Summer girl? Fabulous styling, clothing and attention to detail, Anthropologie never fails in my eyes.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend, I’m looking forward to a girly evening with my friends, definitely a walk on the beach (apparently it’s going to be 27?C here!) and some major relaxing! What are your plans? Anything exciting? Enjoy whatever you do!
