We’d like to thank the lovely ladies of Quality Rivets and Second Skin, two of our favorite bloggers who nominated us for the Beautiful Blogger Award.

We’re told that upon receiving this award you must post 7 fun, interesting, or just plain quirky bits of info about yourself… link the person who nominated you, and then nominate 7 other bloggers. So, in keeping with tradition we would like to nominate:The gorgeous mother/daughter duo Valerie and Camilla of A Butterfly By Day,Uno Cosa for her Scrapbook of more than just beautiful clothes,Song of Style for being a fellow stylish San Franciscan,Second Skin for her wicked vintage finds as well as her wise and genuine comments,the intriguing and ever-so talented artist Lauren Elizabeth at Ariel and Ralph,the natural beauty of Natalie off Duty,spend some time with the words of Cosmic Caroline,lastly, because we like the number 8 just a bit more than 7,Frou Frouu for her always fresh, always impeccable style.

Since we know each other all too well, each of us has written 8 little facts about the other. Hmmm Amy, where do I start?1.) If Amy were stranded on a deserted island only two things would sustain her: sunglasses and a bowl of green curry with chicken and brown rice…actually, anything Thai would do but since we’re being specific2.) If patience is a virtue than this girl is damn virtuous! I strive to have the patience with others and myself that she seems to possess. 3.) Hates cats! What? Now let’s get this straight; Amy is the epitome of a cat: laid back, stubborn, proud, with a “don’t bother me, I won’t bother you” personality. I will never get it, but that’s why I love her.4.) A go-getter. Can talk to anyone about anything and has a keen business sense.5.) If I can dance (yeah right), this girl can sing….but most will never hear her. When it comes to singing Amy turns shy and modest, but I swear I will get her to do Karaoke some day.6.) Has an incredible way with words, spoken as well as written.7.) Her hair is so thick she pretty much has dread locks by the end of any given day. I say give up and give in, she could definitely pull them off!8.) Has always dreamed of volunteering in Africa, teaching art to children perhaps? I have no doubts she will achieve this!-AlexWhoooo is Alex…1. To me… Alex defines perseverance, motivation, and determination.2. She can’t handle it when her hair is greasy… well she’s getting better about it, I once sprayed tanning oil in her hair on the way to the river (we were in High School) … she literally smacked me. The nerve.3. Blunt. Has no problem telling ANYONE what is on her mind. Don’t ask her if you don’t want to know the truth. I love this about her. 4. Likes Cats! I don’t how we remain friends through this one…. but I’ve managed to let it go. 5. Brewers Yeast on her toast, popcorn…eggs. Hey, don’t judge until you try. 6. Soulmate. Sister. Partner in all things quirky, all things hippie, all new adventures. 7. Loves to dress for any occasion. Music, drinks, dancing, clothes flying… getting dressed for a night out is almost always more fun than the actual event. 8. She brings awesome.-AmyImages for this freeezing sunny Sunday. The ideal day holds magical light, sunshine that barely burns, painting freely, water “playing” (no swimming… just dipping) and of course, beautiful nakedness, just because it feels so refreshing to shed the layers and free yourself of all material things.
