Good Monday everyone! This past Friday we received a very special gift from our friend, the lovely and very informative Beauty Blog Orlando. They have nominated us for the Liebster (means Best Blog) Award. We understand that there will be no trophy (Boo) but we are stoked nonetheless to receive this massive shout out. We also know it is a great way to show our appreciation to other blogs and extend our viewer reach, so we are giving a HUGE kiss and hug to Ashley Evelyn (Beauty Blogger Extraordinaire) because she totally rocks and makes us feel pretty with her words daily.
In an effort to share the love, we are nominating just a few of our favorite blogs, because if we included them all the list would be endless. Please click on the below links and check out our picks.
Danaé & Sara
