How amazing is the title of this post? It reminds me of the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants which I absolutely loved as a teen. I’m smiling already. Spreading blog love has always been high on my priority list. We’re all in this together, and that is one of the reasons my friend and fellow blogger Demelza Buckley and I created Bloggers Bloom Together, a community for Perth blogger babes to band together, form friendships and take the clique factor out of blogging. More on our latest BBT event coming soon to the blog but if you’re a Perth blogger and want to meet some like minded creatives you can find us on Facebook. Back to this amazing blogger award. I met Shan from Forty Up at an art event last year and she is such a lovely lass. Her blog is a mix of fashion, fun and family life, and I love reading about her travels and daily dealings. So when she emailed me back in October about the “Sisterhood Of The World” blog awards I knew I had to take part and spread some blogger love.
The award is basically a shout out to your fellow blogger, a virtual pat on the back, a hug to say “you go girl”! Some what like the Liebster Award, it’s a bit of fun and a sweet little virtual high five, so of course I had to partake. You can read Shan’s post here, but basically she asked myself and a few other bloggers a few questions so our readers can get to know us a little better, and spread a bit of joy. Enjoy!
1. Favourite place to have a coffee in your home town?
Do I have to choose one? I’m a bit of a coffee addict so this question is a little hard for me. Can I pick three? Well, I’m going to! Sprolo in South Perth does a mean brew, Architects and Heroes in Subiaco is such a cool spot for a coffee and catch up and I really like the specialty coffee at Tracks in West Leederville. Gingerbread latte anyone?
2. Drink of choice?
I’ll pretty much drink anything within reason but my go to is a cold Pimms or Coco Vodka in Summer. I also love Moscato and fruity cider. I won’t say no to a cocktail either!
3. Do you have a favourite Instagram account?
A million! I always find myself “stalking” @icurvy for her amazing fashion tips and tricks, for food I love @ozeatingwa, it’s the best place to find the hottest Perth food haunts and I love keeping up with what my fellow Perth bloggers are up to. I’ve recently discovered @helloemilie at the Perth Qantas Instameet and her account is just dreamy!
4. Fave place to shop online?
5. Three people you’d love to have over for dinner?
Can I just bundle my family into three? My parents aren’t in the city so I love it when they come to visit.
6. Describe your personal style in three words.
Colourful, fun and sometimes a little bit manic. Am I a girly girl or comfy casual cool?
7. Dream holiday getaway?
I’ve always wanted to see London. But Singapore, New Zealand, Japan and Tasmania are also on my to do list!
8. Finish this sentence – my home is…….
Wherever my people are.
9. Sweet or savoury?
Savoury. All of the savoury!
10. Tell me something about you I wouldn’t know!
I’m actually pretty shy at first (shock horror)! I guess you could say I’m an introverted extrovert! Is that real?
So there you have it! Huge thanks to Shan for passing on the baton. I’d like to pass on to a few of my favourite bloggers and encourage them to share the blog love, because there is nothing nicer than a little bit of encouragement and high fives!
And here are my questions:
1. What makes you super duper happy?
2. Which blogs do you read religiously?
3. Where do you find inspiration to blog?
4. What is your coffee order?
5. Are you an early riser or do you like a sleep in?
6. What are you most looking forward to in 2016?
7. Where is your favourite place to shop in your home town?
8. How do you relax?
9. What do you want for Christmas?
10. What is your guilty pleasure?
Spread a little love this festive season. Comment on your favourite blogs, follow some new people on Instagram, send a shout out to your favourite writers, artists and creatives. It is so easy to compliment people, give it a go!
