Best Blog Award

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

The Oscar is fast approaching, and it's exciting this year with 10 great movies competing. I don't normally watch award shows, well I do mostly for makeup and dress viewing, but I probably would this year.

Euridice at Travel with Euridice sent me this Best Blog Award at the beginning of the month. Thanks so much. It feels good to know someone enjoys reading my blog. If you haven't been to her blog, please do.

As usual, I would not nominate any blog in particular, as all the blogs in my read list - makeup or nail - are excellent and fun. And the list keeps growing every day. Exciting!

Somebody recently stirred the blog world with arguments about the honesty/ dignity of bloggers vs. the media. I found it ridiculous and didn't read into it, as I don't see the need. They can just stop reading blogs, I don't really care. We write and have fun, that's what matters. And I know you would agree with me.

For a little personal update: I spent 3.5 hours in the ER last night trying to get my foot checked out. The clinic doctor suggested it, as at the ER, I could know the xray reading right away rather than waiting for more than a week if I went with an xray request at the lab. The wait was very hard, but I was glad to know nothing was broken. I got a description for some foot wrap to support my ankle from now on. We got home at 10:30. It was such a long night but at least now I don't have to worry about the ankle anymore. The doctor suggested a few more days off work to rest but I couldn't. So let's hope that's all you'd have to hear about my injury :-) Thank you all who cared and talked to me on twitter. You make my recovery a lot easier to endure.


  1. I'm glad to hear your ankle's not broken! I bet it's still really painful though :~(

    Congrats on the award :)

    I didn't take any notice of that article either so I agree with you completely about that!

  2. 3.5 hours isn't too bad. I've waited upwards of 6 before in the ER. Ugh. Glad to hear it's not broken and congrats on the award! :)

  3. I briefly read the article. I mean I knew what she meant about blogging being 'media' but she totally looked down upon bloggers :(

    tsk tsk.

    anyway, be careful, and wear boots, or something that can support your ankle better as it heals. A chinese medicine doc (I went for acupuncture cause of my severe sprains :T) told me that after a few days you should apply heat to help move the 'bad' blood from the bruising flow through and cleanse through the system.

    Annnnd regarding the polish...guess who has got your back XD I do have doubles and such. I'm waiting to see if she will give me any of her other extras...XD some of them are pretty good so I was really excited~

  4. Millie, thanks for your kind words, hugs

    Emily, gosh 6 hours, I'd go insanse.

    PerryPie, I haven't got any wrap. Maybe tonight.

    rasilla, aww you sweet girl to share your polish love with me :-) Can't wait.

    By heat, you mean like a hot water pillow/ pouch or the heat patch?
