The Irresistibly Sweet & Liebster Blog Awards

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen,

I've been honored with two awards this week and now it's time for me to pass on both of them. All the bloggers I'm awarding/thanking share their love for movies in a special way and make my day everyday. I couldn't include all the blogs I wanted, if you want to visit more awesome sites, check my blogroll.

My friend Monty from the always entertaining All Good Things; Dawn from the very interesting/informative Noir and Chick Flicks and Sophie from the lovely and genuine Waitin' On a Sunny Day have kindly passed on this award to me.

According to the rules, I have to give this award to 3-5 more bloggers that have less than 300 followers, but deserve more.

  • Emma's Music: awesome singer, classic movie fan, I love her music and her recent Radio Shows.
  • Fedoras and High Heels: Audrey writes amazing/lovely reviews, it's a great guide when I want to check new movies.
  • A Person in the Dark: I've learned a lot of Classic Hollywood and Classic movies reading FlickChick's posts.
  • Bette's Classic Movie Blog: A cool teenager that writes fun reviews of old movies...and she's called Bette like Miss Davis.
  • Films of Yesterday: Jennifer writes concise reviews of films from the 1910s to 1940s...always a delight to read.
LANGUAGE NOTE: The official message that acompanies this award is WRONG...It says that "in German and Spanish Liebster means 'beloved'". Well, my first language is Spanish and I've never ever heard that word in my life. End of the note.

    • Laura's Miscellaneous Musings: Great reviews of old movies (lots of the film I've seen were recommended here) written by Laura, a gal that also loves Disney and always shares entertaining stories about that.
    • Comet Over Hollywood: Jennifer always surprises me with great posts about movies or actors. Most of the things she has talked about were previously unknown to me.
    • The Girl with the White Parasol: Rachel's reviews are very detailed and insightful and her posts on certain topics (like hats from Classic Films) are very entertaining.
    • Tales of the Easily Distracted: Dorian writes insightful reviews of movies that I've normally haven't seen but I end loving.
