The Stylish Blogger Award and 7 things you may not know about me!

Well all I can say is that receiving the Stylish Blogger Award from Pam of Red Ticking is a most flattering start of the week. Seattle based Pam is not only a fabulous colleague blogger but also the driving force behind the Red Ticking retail store.
I have to admit I was not familiar with this award and it comes with certain rules when you receive it:

thank and link back to the person who awarded you
share 7 things about yourself
award 10 great bloggers that you have RECENTLY discovered
contact those bloggers and tell them about the award
So here are 7 things you may not know about me:

1. Skiing is my favourite sport. I just love racing down the slopes, the steeper the better.
2. I never wear foundation.
3. I can' resist temptation.
4. I still cuddle with my parents.
5. When I was a teenager I had lunch with Dame Joan Sutherland.
6. I bite my nails (sometimes)
7. I will never retire!

And then on to the more difficult task: to award 10 great bloggers I recently discovered....Oh no... choices to be made. There are so many great bloggers out there. So here I go reluctantly and I apologize for not choosing others!
oh and uhhh I have bended the rules a bit, I did not only pick blogs I just discovered as I also have included a few bloggers that I have known for a longer time and cherish!

A Tranquil Townhouse

A Space for Inspiration
Ada and Darcy
Flourish Design and Style
Lanalou Style

Scandinavian Chique 
The Decorista

Urban Stems


  1. Good morning ! nice to learn more about you!!! Have a lovely day

  2. Oh thank you Mariska. I consider it a very great honour to be thought of as stylish by you...one of my inspirations and a definite style queen :) I love skiing too, but I'm not very good at it!

  3. Thank you very much for this Mariska! Such an honour to receive an award from you and to be in such great company. xx

    I will post my gratitude very soon. Am still battling the pile of washing after our holiday, but will return to blogging very soon!

    Biggest hugs and thanks again!

    xx Charlotta xx

  4. So fun to read your list. My daughter is almost 25 and she still cuddles with us as well. I can tell you your parents probably love it as much as we do.

  5. A very stylish blogger you are!! You must have lovely skin - I love my foundation, not thick but just a little cover :)

  6. Mariska, thank you so much! Im with you on nbr3 - especially in the handbag department! Sinead x

  7. Mariska, thanks so much! Great to hear more about you. I still bite my nails too, I really should have grown out of it by now but I guess old habits die hard. Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.xx

  8. You have some great blogs on that list - and some that I have not yet visited, but am about to go and do so!

  9. Hi Mariska, congrats on the award!
    I was lucky enough to recieve this award as well, and will be sharing in the next couple of days...
