I'm touched!

No. I mean, really.

When I had first started this blog one & a half years back........I hardly had any idea that I'll be liked & embraced by so many wonderful people around the world.......sigh!

Why all of this suddenly? Well...........in the last few days, I've realised this in a very heart-warming way once again........that's why! :)

Day in & day out, I pride myself in the growing number of blogging buddies that I have all over the world........according to my mom, I've always been a person with innumerable number of friends everywhere.......and I'm always one of the most well-networked among my friends & colleagues! Hence, I LOVE every new friend I make through this wonderful media of blogging.

But when these new found friends make a gesture that touches my heart? That's when I feel blessed...... :))

Coming to the point, I've been featured quite a bit in the last week.........first, there's a lovely award that has been passed onto me by a very sweet blogger.........and then, there's another wonderful new blogger who's featured me and my brand on her blog! (Now you know why the sudden emotional outburst!)

Ok....first, the award...

The uber-sweet Agam of Trimmings And Lace has honored me with the Tell Me About Yourself Award. Agam has a funky & eye-catching sense of style and she's as wonderful a person as she is stylish. Thanks a bunch for the lovely gesture Agam!! :)

Now for the rules of the award:
1. You have to thank & link back to the person who has passed on the award to you.
2. You have to share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. You have to pass on this award to 15 more bloggers.

Well.......as per rules, some random facts about myself:
  • I'm NOT an early morning person. I can stay up all night if you want me to....but early morning? No...thanks!
  • Fashion is my poison. Nothing intoxicates me more.
  • I love being behind the camera as much as I love being in front of it! :)
  • My sister is 10 years younger to me.
  • I'm currently reading Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot. I often borrow from my sister's teen fiction collection.
  • My most-received compliment till date is that I have beautiful eyes. (I can almost predict when someone's gonna say that!)
  • Music never fails to soothe me....no matter what state of mind I'm in.
For more random pointers, keep reading this blog.........I'm always randomly stating something or the other about myself!! :)

And now I pass on this award to 15 bloggers who have never failed to inspire me on my visits to the blogosphere!! Here's to you, ladies:

1. Andreea of Thrill of the Heel
2. Polly of The Littlest Polly
4. Keschen of Raindrops of Red
5. Hope of Pink Champagne

That said & done, I'm moving onto the other thing that put a BIG smile on my face!

The uber-sweet Uparna of Fascinated or Fixated has just started a series on her blog titled "A Vogue Idea" where she'll be showcasing blogs, brands, people or things that've inspired or interested her fashion-wise..................and guess who made it to the very first post of the series??? Yes, you guessed it right! It's none other than yours truly!!! (Even as I type this, I have a huge grin pasted on my face!!)

Uparna has been wonderful enough to feature me in her first edition of "A Vogue Idea" that she has written and her chosen topic was The Statement Necklace. She has been too sweet with all the lovely things she has written about me & my blog.........and not to mention, my brand Howrah Bridge & it's line of accessories, specially statemnet neckpieces!!! Read her lovely post here.

Thanks a bunch Uparna for making me feel so loved.........I'm flattered!
