Blog Award and Some Exciting News Slash Shameless Self-Promotion

Awww, I'm super touched. A new favorite blog of mine, Memory Bean Designs, just included me in her "I Love Your Blog" awards. Thanks so much Tamara Nicole!

Here are the rules:

*Post the award on your blog*

*Link the person who has given you the award*

*Pass the award to 15 other blogs you’ve discovered*

*Remember to contact the bloggers you’ve nominated*

I would like to pass this award on to some of my most beloved reads- I hope you will check them out if you're not already following!

Fellow thrifty Bostonian Amy of TheBargainHunterExtraodinaire
"Struggler" of Struggling to be Stylish (a must-read!)
Becky of Pump Up the Frump (such gorgeous outfit photos!)
What Would a Nerd Wear calls her outfit pieces 'works cited' - how awesome?!
Kelly at Profiscamur! - a brand-new favorite
Admire the styling and beautiful collages at Lemondrop Vintage
Art, food and more from Angie at Lonesome Road Studio
Easy elegance in daily style from Rags and Finery
Thrifty, nutritious food and smart commentary at Cheap Healthy Good
Fabulous style blogger Londyn's new foodie blog, Blog Food
Witty, wordy, tattooed pin-up girl Ms. Bitch Cakes (weight-loss inspiration and hottness)
Gorgeous home-design blog focusing on bright colors and run by a DUDE (!), Will: Bright Bazaar
Be inspired to make your home more beautiful at The DIY Showoff
Stunner Christina (like a prettier Maggie Gyllenhall) of SecondSkin
Last but not least, The Freelancer's Fashion Blog by a RIDICULOUSLY glamorous but down-to-earth Finnish burlesque-dancing retro pin-up.

I adore reading each and every one of your blogs and find your talent, discerning eye and wonderful prose to be a constant inspiration. So, thank you!

My exciting news (well, for me, perhaps not nearly as much for you!) is that I've been accepted to write for the Boston Examiner as the "Budget Living Examiner" for my part of Cambridge. It's a new gig for me and I don't have a whole lot of content up (and much of it is similar to the content here, just consolidated and not in first person) but I would be so appreciative if you would check it out!

If you're interested in making a few extra pennies a day through your knowledge or expertise (I'm sure it's possible to make more, also), please apply to write for Examiner and put my name (Desiree Pappenheimer) or ID# (42177) in the referral box (shameless, I know)... for every person you then refer who is accepted, you will get $50! It's like a chain of awesome.

Happy reading!


  1. Congrats on the award and the new gig. How fun!

  2. Hey, thanks so much for the award. And the Examiner gig sounds awesome; I checked out my local area but none of the topics seem to quite work. I hope it brings you lots of new readers though!

  3. Aww thanks so much for the award! I am truly touched!!! :)

    Congratulations on getting to write for the Examiner! So Awesome!!


  4. Hey girl- I was hopping over here to tell you I have a blog award for you and whaddaya know- you've already gotten that exact award! Anyway, check it out when you like:
