Our First Contest Ever- WINNERS!

After about two hours of looking through the blogs of our 50+ contestants that participated in our most recent contest, Meggasus and I have FINALLY agreed on three winners. It was a long process.... we laughed, we cried, we argued! (Emphasis on the last one) For those who participated, we would like to thank you all for your patience! Every blog we saw was unique in its own way... however, the ones we chose speak to us, and very much reflect our taste in fashion, photography, art, etc. Now to announce the winners (They are listed in no specific order)... drum roll please!!....


Artpixie is the blog of a 16 year old girl from Austrailia who has an incredible eye for photography. The beauty of this blog is that she features the work of up and coming photographers and artists, giving these visionaries the attention they deserve. Her blog is not only well organized, it is also visually impressive. The Artpixie blog gives off a sweet and feminine vibe that is very welcoming to its viewers. Her blog is separated into several sections (Photography, Art, Fashion, Editorials, Interviews, Free Downloads, Blogroll and her own work) making it easy for readers to find what they are looking for. According to Meggasus, "When I read this blog it makes me feel really happy, like when I'm eating a delicious funfetti cupcake with pink frosting and rainbow sprinkles." For a sixteen year old, this girl is very professional and will definitely do big things in the future.

French for "The little apple," this blog has been one of our favorites from the start. Each post is simple and consists of one or two photographs and a short, inspiring phrase, thought, or explaination. Pomeline will post photos of anything from a soft, vintage, Fernando Pessoa painting to a photograph of what she had for breakfast to pictures of Gemma Ward, Jessica Stam and other high fashion models. If you are in search of inspiration. this is the place to look. Where Pomeline stumbles upon these unique images is a mystery to us, but she never fails to find something visually pleasing. According to Meggasus, "This blog makes me wish I could speak in sexy french phrases and write exquisite poetry."

We love Katie from Fashion Clocked because just by looking at her blog, we felt asthough she could be one of our good friends if only we lived closer. Out of the three winners, this blog is the most fashion oriented, while the other two are more focused on photography. After reading Fashion Clocked's outfit posts, we both wish we could borrow her wardrobe because we love every single item that she features. This makes sense, because the blogger behind Fashion Clocked is a fashion merchandiser and buyer from the United Kingdom with obvious good taste. Not only does Katie have excellent style, she is also a blonde, model-esque beauty with fabulous bone structure. According to Meggasus, "I don't want to sound weird, but I wish I was the girl from Fashion Clocked.... She probably has a cool British accent to go along with her cool clothes!"
