Pass It Forward: 3 Bloggers

Friday 16 November 2012
If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably seen my photos of the Christmas lights around the town center (click here to follow me). I love the festivities and tradition surrounding Christmas which are all celebrated with a great deal of unabashed joie de vivre by kids and adults alike. The Christmas lights were switched on yesterday which will be followed by the lantern procession next week to mark the official opening of the Christmas market and ice skating rink on the cathedral grounds. All very exciting and a truly magical time of the year.

Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific


This stunning beauty needs little introduction. Believe it or not, I've only just started following her blog after looking to inject colors into my monochromatic closet. Blair or better known as Bee is a master of mixing colors and prints. She's unafraid to experiment. How about wearing two clashing shirts? Or mixing shocking pink with violet? After spending 2 days going through the posts in her archive, I've emerged from my cocoon utterly inspired and rearing to go and work on adding more colorful pieces in my closet. All in the name of fashion, of course.

Naomi of Taza and Husband


Naomi has been blogging since 2007 which is a long time in today's blogging world. I remember the day years ago when I first stumbled upon her blog and thought, wow, this girl's not only cool but she's so likeable, joyful and down to earth. I admire her for her faith (she's a Mormon). I like that she doesn't rub it in people's faces yet practices the values she believes in. Just looking at her, it's hard to believe that she's a mom of 2. A graduate of Juilliard and a former teacher who gave it up when she had her daughter. If you think she's cool, check out her husband Josh who looks dapper with his bow ties. Oh, and the kids? The cutest little munchkins ever!

0000 Codexed


She may not the world's most prolific blogger but darn, her insights and eloquence would sock you in the knee. Her posts are insightful, sometimes thought provoking and always well thought out. Get this, she's only in her early 20s. She explores the nuances of her outfits without falling victim to today's rampant commercialism of the fashion industry.
