Pass It Forward: 3 Bloggers

Friday, 29 June 2012
I can't wait to introduce these 3 fabulous ladies. Here we have a Kiwi, an Aussie and an American, all based in the US of A.

Jody of About Last Weekend is a fellow Kiwi whose blog I read religiously because 1) she understands my language. She knows what I'm jabbering about when I say bickies (biscuits), lollies (sweets), barbie (barbecue), gumboots (wellies),  tim tams (a type of biscuits) and JAFA (Just Another F**king Aucklander which I was until I moved to UK)  2) she's down to earth and a hoot to chat with even if it's online  3)  she's seriously funny. Like side splitting, gut busting type funny even when she's dishing out words of wisdom  4) she doesn't take herself too seriously   5) she's more toned and thinner than I will ever be despite being 50.

Hope in High Heels is a travel journal of an Aussie living in New York. She's from Melbourne, one of my favorite cities in the world where most of my friends are based so I'm a little biased. The combination of incredible photos and evocative writing makes me feel like I am right there beside her on her many trips as she explores the length and breadth of America. Her blog has taken me to places that I've always dreamed to go such as Memphis and New Orleans. I'll have to live vicariously through her until I have the opportunity to visit these places myself.

Sooae is the woman behind The Haute Cookie. Haute? I'm more inclined to rename her The HOT Cookie. She is a mom of 2 little girls. I mean just look at her. My jaw dropped to the ground when I first found out that bit of info. She's stunning, cooks like a dream and knows Chanel from back to front. Oh wait, there's more, she's also into home decor. She's the Asian version of Martha Stewart albeit far better looking.

I only discovered Hope in High Heels relatively recently, and absolutely adore it. She is just gorgeous and love seeing an Aussie in New York's perspective. Hope your weekend is finishing off well in UK!
