Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
In January I proudly announced that I was nominated for a Fabbie Award — the first ever fashion and lifestyle blogger-created and organized awards, created by the internet superstars of Fashiontribes, Bag Snob and Manoloâ€™s Shoeblog.
I am thrilled to announce that thanks to you, beautiful, wonderful bellas and fellas who took the time to register and vote for moi, I won! I won, I won, I won the Best Beauty category. And I was nominated alongside some really first class beauty blogs, so I am especially surprised and honored. Cut to me dancing like Snoopy in my living room.
Without further ado, the winners are as follows —
Accessories – Knickersblog
Beauty – Afrobella (that’s me!)
Best Newbie – stylenotes
Men’s – Dandyism — which I love, BTW
e-Zine/New Frontier Publishing – NYMag.com
Fashion – I Like Her Style (YAY, Sylvia!!!!!!)
Indie/Niche – The Fashion Incubator
Parents/Pets – Honest Baby
Shoes – Grand Mademoiselle Shoe blog
Shopping – The fabulous FabSugar
Streetstyle – The Sartorialist.
I am so psyched to have won an award alongside these magnificent blogs, and I can’t thank you enough for voting for me. I promise to keep my head to the sky, and to keep on bringing you more of the stuff you love.
Speaking of which… what would you like to see more or less of on this blog? Beauty reviews? Giveaways (goes without saying)? Hair posts? Makeup tips? Politics? Music? Celebrity rambling? Also, what would you guys think about an Afrobella forum, where you could ask questions and keep conversations flowing all the time? I’m open to suggestions, and I’d love to get your input on ways to take Afrobella to the next level.
Thank you again for taking the time to vote for me. I’m gonna try to make a trip to NYC this September… the Fabbies award ceremony is going to be held during Fashion Week!!
