Giving Thanks

Big thank you to Marie Claire UK, who featured me on page 136 of their November 2009 issue, which has X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke on the cover wearing Michael Kors.

Also a massive thank you to the Telegraph who named my blog one of the 20 Best Fashion Blogs.

Also featured on this list was BryanBoy, teen blogging sensation Tavi and the first lady of Fashion Blogging Susie Lau.

I’m so happy to be featured and deeply honoured.

Thanks x

  17. Alyazia October 11, 2009 at 17:17 #

    Thats so great FC!! Congrats dear .. =)
    one thing i noticed about you, is that regardless of the huge number of comments you get on the posts, u always try to keep in touch with your followers, by responding directly to their questions, take with their suggestions .. etc

    Job well done .. bless you xx
    Alyazia – uae

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2009 at 17:36 #

      thanks for noticing that Alyazia.

      It’s like when a stranger says hello to me in the street, I always respond. If someone can take the time to say hello, it’s only polite to say hello back.

      I have that same principle with my blog.

      thanks for your kind comment. FC x

      • Lala/S-R October 11, 2009 at 20:30 #

        Ahhhh, I like that. A person with values, grace, and manners. Thanks for always responding. I too admire that about you, FC. I’ve been on blogs where I’ve asked questions a million times in hopes of getting a response and I’m still waiting for at least one today. LOL. Job well done indeed.

        • Fashion Critic October 11, 2009 at 20:39 #

          I know exactly what you mean. I used to write to bloggers before I started my own and was always surprised not to get a response.
