Goodbye Monday Blues

Hi everyone , to those who really took the time and effort to read and comment on my posts ,  i sincerely thank you and i appreciates the support and love i received from you guys.

Just a brief introduction of Tragic Fairy Tales. 
I am Jasmine, a regular girl from Malaysia who loves photography, arts , music and fashion. I started my blog back in 2007 , back then its really personal as this is the only place i can write down my thoughts , my feelings and most of all teen anger that in reality i find it hard to express to my friends and family.

Then one day i stumble upon Maria Confer from Lulu Letty and i was like Whoah this girl is amazing I want to be like her .She is my inspiration to transform my blog.

I don't write to get money for advertorials or sponsors. I write because i believe writing is a form of escape from my daily routine life. And through out blogging , i've met so many great independent writers and also made awesome friends along the way.

To be honest i felt thrilled and happy every time i see a new face in my follower column , then I  became so obsessed and i hate myself for having that feeling.

I don't want to be pretentious .So from today onwards i will write without worrying if people will comment on my updates or how many new readers i will get.  

I am now an official IFB member too :)

Last week i received my very first award from Joenna from Joe's Blog , 

She is a talented artist from Germany and also one of the most sincere friends i've made through blogging. Its worth dropping by at her page and look at her amazing paintings. Joe, Thank u so much for this.

Then i received my second award from Susuana -Susuana's Love

A sweet young girl from UK who loves photography art and animation , we both loves Studio Ghibli's work a lot  

 So as a token of appreciation to both of them and all my readers , i 've made a simple Award that i dedicate especially to Joe and Susuana and also all my readers. I know most bloggers will made of list of names that they will pass the award to . But i don't want to miss out anyone's name because i have a long long list of great writers and blogs that i love. So in order to be fair i have decided to give an award to everyone.

* drums rolling
Feel free to use it in your page because you girls deserves it

Hope everyone's Monday Blues will go away and have a great week ahead

Last but not least ,Hello Kitty rose gold rings GIVEAWAY by Lolita's Life
This is the first time i participate in give aways, cross fingers cause the bow ring is so awesome

It's a great feeling when you recieve a comment from an old blogging friend or a new friend and you can tell they really took the time to read your post and not just say "nice blog". I always enjoy your comments missy, so want to make sure I do the same.

It's great to be inspired by other bloggers - they are a constant creative outlet :) I've been blogging just under a year and am still in love with it. Hehe,

Anyway, enough about me. Congrats on the awards.

Way to stay true to yourself. Your blog should be one place where you can write/post whatever you want. It's kind of sad when I see bloggers who are just in this to get attention, more comments and followers.
Your blog is great and you definitely deserve those awards.

Rio said...

Congratulations on the awards! How exciting! :)

Amber Rose said...

Blogging is such a wonderful way of expression-- to put your words out there for the world to see, or just a way to vent. I'm so glad you have this blog, too-- You are one of the sweetest gals I've had the pleasure of meeting! "Meeting". ha.

Carrie said...

You deserve this awards... :)

I like to read others' blogs to get more inspirations....

hafidz said...

jamie-lee said...

Krystal said...

vivinyvil said...

Lulu and the Locket said...

Signe said...

SusuanaLove said...

Thank you so much! Youve made my morning i wish there was something I could do for lol :D xx

Indie.Tea said...

Comments and followers are nice, aren't they? I dont follow generally 'cause I don't use Google reader, but rather I reply to all the comments left on my blog. So I usually comment instead of follow :)
And I hate it when bloggers try to get you to follow them, but asking you to follow in comments or emailing you asking you to follow. Its embarrassing. Your blog, though, is really nice and very cute.

Bea said...

I know what you mean, Jasmine. I can get a little too proud of my blog, myself. But you're right, we just have to keep reminding ourselves what we are doing this for.

Maria has an amazing blog and style but I'm sure if you stay true to your own vision and style you will be just as proud of your blog!

Daniela Rodrigues said...

hey sweety :) Thank you so much for your lovely comments. You're really cute. Glad to see that you are loving my blog. Means that my work is recognized :)

You can have the effect of my photos just changing the color balance and use and abuse of the yellow :)
its pretty easy and just take a few seconds of your day. Of course sometimes don't work in some photos. In the case of my last post was not working so I put blue and next yellow and voilá. I use photofiltre cause I dont have photoshop in my new computer yet, but it's the same thing in both programs.

By the way, you are gorgeous in this picture :o

Kisses, Daniela

Congratulations on feeling inspired to re-start a fresh.
In reply to your comment on my blog - It was expensive in Paris but there were men street selling, which IS illegal, kinda harmless but when the police would come you'd see them all runaway which was funny. But you get a bargain for the same thing you'd buy in store.xx
