HUG Award and Shine On Award

Recently, I was awarded two awards by the always fabulous Shiro-please check out her fantastic blog here.  The first award is the Hope Unites Globally Award:

The HUG Award@ was initiated by Connie Wayne http://ahopefortoday.com/about-m/), which promotes hope, love, peace, equality, and unity for all people.

The HUG Award is for people with an expectant desire for the world, for which they: Hope for love; Hope for Freedom; Hope for Peace; Hope for Equality; Hope for Unity; Hope for Joy and Happiness; Hope for Compassion and Mercy; Hope for Faith; Hope for Wholeness and Wellness; Hope for Prosperity; Hope for Ecological Preservation.  These people do not have to actively use the word “hope ” in their work or creative talents. They only need be conscious of their desire to make the world a better place for everyone.  These people use their available resources-a smile, a hug, a helping hand, a listening ear, a voice, time, money, possessions, education, personality, talent, websites and blogs – to make a positive impact on the world and make the world a better place to live.

My nomination for the HUG Award is HisLoveIsReal.  This blog fits this award perfectly!

The second award is the Shine On Award:

As always there are rules to these Awards. Here are the ones for the Shine On Award ;

1. Show appreciation of the blogger who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
2. Add the Award logo to your blog.
3. Share 7 things about yourself. Maybe some curious or secrets things what no one ever had thought about you.(nothing should)!

Fierce Flats

Can you believe trend reports are already out for this fall?  That’s too much for me.  I’m still trying to get a handle on the new spring season and don’t even want to start thinking about fall!  Let me enjoy the spring and summer while I can!

Flats have been trending for a while, so that’s no big news.  However, this season, flats are fierce.  Who doesn’t love a trend that’s fun and comfortable at the same time!  I plan to add more flats to my wardrobe.  If you’re looking to do the same, here are some really cute flats for very little money.  Click on the picture for more information.  Enjoy and be fabulous!

Fabulous Fashion Finds

I’ve been buying some new items to freshen up my spring/summer wardrobe and thought you might like to see what I purchased.  I’ve been shopping my local consignment stores but have come up empty-handed and disappointed.  I went to one store recently because they were having a sale but the selection was very poor.  The other store I went to had several nice items but they were charging way too much.  I could get a brand new item for the prices they were asking!  So, all of my recent purchases have been online.  Let me know what item is your favorite!  Don’t forget to click on the picture for more details!

I picked up these hot pink wedges on sale at Steinmart.

LOVE the feminine look of this top-the pearl collar is very nice.  The back of the shirt is T-shirt material-which I thought was a little weird-but I still love it with a jacket for work and with sophisticated black bermuda shorts and stunning wedges for going out-$29
