Liebster Blog Award

So my lovely friend Jo from Haus-stylish was recently awarded the Liebster Blog award for blogs with under 200 followers and has so kindly passed this award onto my little blog.  Thank you Jo!  I'm not sure if there may of been an underlying reason to get me inspired to post (as i've been rather slack so this worked!) or because we joined this blog world together (with another good friend Kel from Gone to Yoga) and value what each other does.

It's been an interesting start to 2012 for my little event business with a few smaller events and a larger one still to come in the very near future!  I'm feeling very excited about what my small event company could become by the end of next year (yes i have a 2yr plan to get this baby launched) and am so lucky to have some fabulous people around me to help me achieve this dream.

Now the conditions of this little award are that I must post my 5 favourite blogs with under 200 followers....

These 5 bloggers then must follow the below conditions:

* Copy and Paste the Award on your Blog

* Link back to the Blogger who gave you the Award

* Pick your 5 favourite Bloggers with under 200 followers who you think deserve to be recognised and leave a comment on their Blog letting them know they have won the Award

* And hope the 5 chosen Bloggers will continue to share the Blog Award love.

So here we go..................................
