Judging by the infinite number of bloggers showing off our best outfits in social events may give you the idea that the average blogger is a party animal. This couldn't be further from the truth. Let's debunk a few myths about bloggers. Most of us can't be categorized as full timers which means we subsist on meager income drawn from our beloved hobby. We earn enough to buy ourselves a few burgers from McD every now and then. Seriously. Well, with the exception of a handful of extraordinarily talented bloggers. Despite our professed love for fashion, we blog in our PJs, our most under-rated outfit.

Secondly, we're hermits and would in fact, survive rather well in solitary confinement. We crawl out of our caves from time to time to socialize in order to verbalize our thoughts instead of just thinking about them.

Thirdly, there are more and more mommy bloggers in the blogosphere these days though my blog isn't exactly classified as one, namely because I'm not particularly child friendly. I was once guilted into accompanying a group of lively 6 year olds on a school trip by Lil L's teacher. Judging by my pained expression and growls (mine, not the kids), suffice to say, I was never asked again.

Outfit: Helmut Lang coat (similar here and here), Zara boyfriend jeans (similar here), Christys' hat, ankle boots (similar here), Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 35cm

I got papped! In fact, several of them had a field day taking photos of me in action (yeah, with the face all scrunched up). And trying on my Helmut Lang coat. Sigh. To be tall and lean and wearing a Helmut Lang coat (yes, I'm talking to you, Avril and Kat). In case you're wondering, it IS the voice of envy.

Sorry for the diversion.......what I was trying to say was I met up with a bunch of lovely mommy bloggers in London last weekend. Joanna flew in from Atlanta while Helen and Avril arrived by way of Ireland and the rest of us came in from all over England. Good food, good company, a fabulous way to spend the day.

  4. Glad to read you were in good company this week-end !
    Hopefully we had a lovely time in London on Saturday !
    Because our car ended being towed by a lorry to drive us back to Dover on Sunday (our beloved car decided to have a major breakdown just in front of Trafalgar Square...)
    That would have be fun and surprising to meet you in the London crowd !

  6. HAHA your comment about blogging in PJs is so true.. currently in my own pjs blogging.. couldn't help but see the humour in it. Sounds like it was a really lovely meet up - I enjoy the opportunity to meet up with the few bloggers that are around in Wellington, since they are far and few.

    1. We planned it a few months ago. Thought it'd be neat to organize a get together after Sue (susiesoso) and I had a brilliant time together. Jody, you're a sweetheart. I'm totally loving my matrix coat at the moment. It's so cold here! You're lucky that your winter is so mild. We talked about you!! And about how brilliant your writing is. Well, we'll definitely have to catch up if you ever come to London.

  17. You always have a way of painting the truth in the most hilarious manner. And yes, I am writing this while sitting in bed wearing pjs. I'm beginning to realise more and more that most bloggers are a little shy and introverted. Which is probably what propels the creativity behind their blogs. One day I'm flying over to have coffee with you and possibly steal that Helmut Lang coat.
