Pass It Forward: 3 Bloggers

Shayma of The Spice Spoon

I compare Shayma's blog to having one of the best meals of your life. She sets the scene with evocative stories of her childhood and then indulges the audience with beguiling photographs of her culinary creations. Finally, her elegantly composed prose makes you want to savor every single word like you would with a dessert. Shayma is an Pakistani- Afghan who has traveled and lived in many countries. She is an economist by day, a blogger by night and is currently based in Canada.

Mai Tai of Mai Tai's Picture Book

Mai Tai isn't her real name but a pseudonym that she's more commonly known by all Hermes enthusiasts. She's the guru of Hermes scarves. Her passion and encyclopedic knowledge about Hermes scarves has helped many around the world. She twists and folds and ties and voila, the scarf looks nothing like the original 90cm square cloth. Mai Tai lives in Aix-en-Provence, a charming town that hubby and I would love to visit again.

Louise of Lapin de Lune

Ever since I've made the decision to declutter and subscribe to a  minimalist wardrobe, I've met many like-minded ladies in the blogosphere. Louise maintains a practical but also incredibly versatile and chic closet. It's never tacky or overdone but aesthetically pleasing. It's reminiscent of the Parisian chic that we always aim for. I'll be honest and say that I have a voyeuristic streak in me. I look forward to catching glimpses of the charming apartment she lives in which also serves as the background in her photos.

  8. Have been spending way too much time looking at these gorgeous women's pictures - you have me hooked! Shayma's top is such a beautiful red drape.

  9. I've read both Lapin and Mai Tai and adore both - but Shayma is a new discovery! Love this feature of yours :)

  10. Ooh Louise's blog looks right up my minimalist alley! :) (p.s. I haven't moved to UK, I just spread the joy of the holiday there last year over posts a year later!)

  11. I always look forward to these posts. Lapin de Lune just became my favourite new blog. I can't wait till I have more time to go through her archives. Looking forward to the next post in this series.

  12. I have been reading your blog for quite some time and was so surprised to find myself listed here! Thankyou so much, I most certainly consider it a huge compliment! Also great to discover these wonderful new blogs to read.

    I am always a bit shocked to find out somebody may enjoy my blog/images/style etc, so never quite know what to say. I only wish the rest of my home was as charming as the room I take the photo's in!

    Much appreciated x

  13. Thanks for sharing again! Mai Tai is one of my favorite! 'Hermes guru' is a perfect description of her!
