The past week has been a whirlwind. I have been so busy and will continue to be extremely busy until next weekend. Not only have I been crazy busy at work, but during my free time I am also giving driving lessons to an Indonesian woman (one of my mom's coworkers). It has been paying a little extra cash (20 bucks an hour) and it will finally (hopefully) end Thursday morning when I take this woman to get her driver's license. I have also been freelancing for a "hip" yuppie local magazine to earn a few extra bucks (doing food reviews, fashion features, etc.) and I just started freelancing for an online fashion mag (for fun). Phew.

And today was my three year anniversary at the newspaper. It's strange to think I have been a working woman for three years. Ever since I was little, I dreamed of being a newspaper reporter, and now here I am at 25 years old, writing for one of the most-read newspapers in the nation. Kind of cool.

Anyway, I received a couple of awards recently.

This gorgeous award was given to me by Couture Carrie who has one of the coolest (and most inspirational) fashion blogs out there. Thanks CC!

I am going to pass this award on to:

La Femme Chic

Euphoria Swarms In

The Realm of Aesthetics

Planet Plum

Tia Cherie

Too Haute to Handle

And now...

This fab award was given to me by Imogen at Tia Cherie. She has a lovely blog I highly recommend. (Thanks for the award, Imogen! So sweet.).

I am going to pass this award along to the following fashionistas:

Savvy Mode

We Were Damsels

Little Violet Dress

Zarnas Runway

Qin at the Disco

Fashion CHALET

Fashion Pulse

Thanks Jennifer. :) And thanks for your comment.
