Pass It Forward: 3 Bloggers

Friday, 12 October 2012
I'm still rather taken aback and stoked by the positive feedback about my outfit photos. Aliya of Marant Philes summed up my thoughts perfectly -"It's truly the weirdest, most contrived thing to take photos of ourselves to present to the blogosphere. It's like smile but not too much, don't smile oh I look angry". So....going forward....whenever I have a free moment, I'm going to practice baring my teeth smiling in front of the mirror. *grrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiin*


Dearne of Notting Hill Girl




Dearne's an Aussie from my all time favorite city, Melbourne but is currently living in London. What's more, she's a fellow Francophile. French pharmacy junkie - check! French fashion - check! From Australia or NZ - check! (I'm biased). Blog's sprinkled with fashion and travel posts - check! She's absolutely stunning with those killer cheekbones. I spent the better part of the morning just scrolling through page after page ogling her outfits. Instant love!



 Tuan-Khanh of Dead Fleurette




Tuan-Khanh is barely 21 yet she has influenced thousands of others with her minimalist approach to wardrobe editing. She has certainly changed the way I view my sartorial needs. Interestingly, I now realize that I no longer have a problem getting dressed in the morning nor do I ever think that I have nothing to wear despite having the smallest wardrobe I've ever owned in my life. My jaw hit the ground when I found out that English is her ..... get this.... 3rd language. Yes, third! Yet, she is one of the best writers on the blogosphere.



Parveen of Handbags and Fashion Rags





Parveen is a walking skincare and make up encyclopedia. It was on her blog that I learned that in the make up world, the kabuki refers to a brush, not the Japanese kabuki theater. Since I'm absolutely hopeless at make up application, I rely on her reviews or else it's just a pointless exercise going to Sephora or any make up counter, for that matter. I love her refreshingly honest feedback. I dashed out to buy the Caudalie cleanser that she raved about. It is by far, the best cleanser I've ever used.

  2. How do you manage to find time to wander around so many blogs, on top of your photographer's skills and parallel all these with a family life ? ! My children often complain that i have my "head into the computer screen"... Anyway, this is again a lovely new-ladies-to-discover selection !

    1. You're so sweet! Thank you! I've just mentioned to Jenee (in my comment below) that it takes hours to find just one blog. I also follow many others but you're right, it's extremely time consuming. I've found blogging to be a full time job on top of my job!

  7. haha I think if you just relax about taking photos for the blog, a natural smile will come through easily. I take worse photos when I'm stiff and worrying because it really shows through. however if I'm in a good mood that day and no one is around to see me posing and getting my photos taken, my photos will look a lot better. thanks for the 3 blogs too. going to check them out! :)

    1. Thank you, Jenee! Admittedly, I spend hours scouring and looking for blogs which tick all the right boxes. It is a time consuming exercise but I feel privileged that I have a platform to promote other bloggers.
