Pass It Forward: 3 Fabulous Reads

Friday, 20 September 2013
It's been a long while since I've last featured a Pass It Forward post on Fridays. Naughty me.  Life gets in the way of blog reading sometimes. I have a list of blogs as long as my arm that I need to look at.  So here are 3 blogs/book that rock my boat at the moment.


Amanda Brooks of Amanda Loves Your Style



When Annie reviewed I Love Your Style by Amanda Brooks, I promptly logged on to Amazon and bought the book. It was down to earth, sensible and fun to read. I had a chance to catch up with Annie last week. "Have you read Amanda Brooks' blog?" she asked. "She has a blog?!", I gaped. At her urging, I checked it out and went through pages after pages after pages for hours on end. A style maven she may be but that's not what her blog is all about. It's a bit more like a personal journal of her current life as she splits her time on a farm in Oxfordshire and the U.S.



Kirstie Clements, author of The Vogue Factor

Okay, so technical it's not a blog but it's to do with fashion so that should count for something. This is the personal and detailed account of the fashion industry - straight from the horse's mouth or in this case, from Kirstie Clements, the former Editor-in-Chief of Australian Vogue. She was unceremoniously sacked last year which isn't an uncommon practice in the corporate world. It's a fun and riveting read with all the delicious and juicy tidbits about the fashion world that the civilians are always curious about but rarely get the unadulterated truth.



Noelani of Mon Petit Chou Chou



Bloggers are generally a friendly bunch of people who network because the very act of writing is a rather isolating activity. We meet people so that we can actually verbalize our thoughts as opposed to typing them out. When Anne and I met up, she suggested I checked out Mon Petit Chou Chou. Boy, am I glad I did. Beautiful photography, awesome recipes that had me drooling on my keyboard, varied posts - just the kind of aesthetics that I love. Noelani has just given birth to a beautiful baby girl, Daphne. Congratulations, Noelani!

  5. Sorry for the late response but thank you for the shout out! I think AB (we even have the same initials!) is the only person who has a life I actually really, really want. She lives about 10 miles from where I grew up so all that Cotswolds stuff interspersed with New York gets me every time. Her photos are amazing. x
