Stiletto Award

It's been an exciting few weeks for my little blog. And I find it most interesting that it has all been happening when my life cannot seem to get any busier! Isn't that always the case? When it rains, it certainly pours (as if the weather the past few weeks in NYC hadn't already convinced me of this). As work, classes, and my personal life just continue getting fuller and fuller, I sometimes worry that my blog ends up getting the short end of the stick. But, just when I was really starting to doubt my priorities, my first blogging award landed my way! Meet, The Stiletto Award - "a salute to the women who balance life, family & relationships with style & class." I honestly could not express my personal goals any better myself. So, thank you!!


While the award recognizes successful women bloggers in all shapes and forms (which I too will do), I wanted to entertain you with an aspect of this award that I feel probably most often gets overlooked - the award's namesake, the stiletto. And instead of attempting to tell you my own tales in heels, I've taken a few quotes from the award's creators. These wise words should make any woman who has ever sported heels nod their head and grin. I like to think that at various stages of my life, I have lived by each and every one of their clever remarks
- and I will certainly continue to do so down the road. I bet you never knew heels could inspire such insight!

"Heels this high are not meant for clubbing or walking long distances in. They are mainly used for getting from the living room to the bedroom, from the car to the restaurant, or for a short stroll along the catwalk."

"To walk gracefully in heels, take short steps, as opposed to long strides, and come down in a heel-toe, heel-toe motion."

"Under no circumstance, drive a car with your heels on. Not only do you have less control over the car, but it will damage your shoes - and they aren't cheap at this height. Keep spare shoes in the car for driving, or have someone drive you."

"Walking in extremely high heels is not something that the average woman (or man) will need to do in their everyday life. However, there are times when this skill may be required."

And so finally, I have to thank Alisa of The Meat and Potatoes Foodie who nominated me for this award. You can just call her Miss Meat and Potatoes. Her quirky recipes are infused with excellent taste. She is the epitome of Shabby and Chic - and I love it. And with the tradition of the Stiletto Award, I will pass the torch onto a few fellow bloggers that who, whether or not they enjoy actually sporting a pair of heels, will most certainly know how to use them.

First, I owe so much of my initial blog motivation and inspiration to Luisa of The Wednesday Chef. As she dissects delicious recipes, her excellent writing style makes you want to tackle any challenge or adventure in both the kitchen and in life. I am more than certain this will NOT be her first award!

Next up, Kristin of
The Pearl Onion. Kristin has been blogging since 2006 about all aspects of food with a focus on creative recipes. She recently gave her site a face-lift, incorporating it with her own top-notch photography. I really do hope to follow in those footsteps one day very soon!

And finally, a new addition to my favorite reads - Heather of The Heat. We share a love for eating out as well as cooking in. With her great sense of style and taste, she keeps me up to date on the latest and greatest from the New York City food scene while always providing a must-try recipe.

Congratulations! And now, it's your turn to learn about the rules of this unique award. Head here, share the fun, and, most importantly, enjoy!!
