You thought I’d forgotten didn’t you? Okay, I did.
I’m back though, giving credit where it is due with another instalment of #blogloving
There are 5 South African blogs and 1 international that I’ll be giving kudos to.
In no particular order:
Quirky, fun, entertaining and funny these Skinny Bitches entertain with tales of “cute boys, killer heels, dream apartments and size zero apartment”
They not only make it on the list for this but also because they are running their first blog competition in which they are giving away a spa treatment. Who doesn’t want to be touched on their studio by the experts at Urban Spa?
I’d always loved Justine’s ifor1 blog, and recently she, Jamie Who blogger and Maketh Man blogger came together and launched Aficionado. The powers of three awesome bloggers have created this one stop shop for all things fashion, food, drinks, art, interiors, decor, lifestyle and travel.
You just have to visit Garance’s blog daily. The French photographer posts images so light, airy and full beauty, she makes any day just seem wonderful. She also gets a nod for having English translation of her posts for us non Frenchies. We once used her images as reference for a denim story in O magazine, so you know you too will be inspired. Plus she’s the girlfriend (or wife) of the original street style blogger The Sartorialist.
In the manner of Kat as it is called, the 80’s baby from Jozi has given her blog a little bit of a facelift with her new logo. I love it. The blog is a light hearted and honest look at some of the things that make her smile. Kudos to Katesque.
How could I not include my daily fix of the scribing, fashion news and and lovely images from O Magazines Fashion Editor, Robyn Cooke of StyleGuideCapeTown? The blog is over two years old and every day brings a fresh fashionable post. Style Guide CT is currently on a well deserved holiday, but will be back just in time for Cape Town Fashion Week taking place 12 – 14 August, so you’d better check out the blog for all the fashion happenings and reviews of the scene. Oh and of course to catch up with her holiday in the English countryside.
The lady makes me miss Joburg like there’s no tomorrow with her accounts of the vibey and stylish events in the city of gold. The style queen has also been featured in a couple magazines lately and so her style cred, so to speak, has been sealed. As a on contributor on the party blog PinkLyte, Thithi keeps us up to date on what’s hot in and around Jozi.
….and that’s all (for now) folks.
Tell me which blogs have been tickling your fancy and I’ll be sure to check them out.
