Saturday Spotlight || Oddly Lovely

Time for another spotlight!

oddly lovely blog spotlight

This weeks spotlight is Cat!

Let’s start with the introductions

I like Cat. Dare I say it, but she’s lovely. Odd, but lovely. Oddly lovely… geddit?! hehe. Moving on.

But really, I do like Cat. I like her blog, I like her style, I like her posts that make me want to cook, the ones that make me think and the ones that make me feel part of a secret group of people who share those opinions that people in blogland pretend they don’t have.

But who is Cat? Well, she’s not an expat or a travel blogger (makes a change, I know!), she’s actually a San Francisco dwelling, dog-owning, audiobook loving, TV watching, dessert eating kind of woman. Funny, genuine, and always good for a chat on and off the blog.

Blog-wise, she’s a recipe creating, cute clothes wearing, beauty tips and blog advice giving and an all round life’s-little-moments blogger. Variety is the spice of life, don’t ya know.

Too many lists? Too much I-N-G-ing?

Cat’s slice of internet, is a good place to be. Whether you’re looking for something new to try in the kitchen, something with a bit more to think about, some home or style inspiration, there will be something for you there.  If you enjoy controversial, somewhat heavy posts, I recommend having a read of Cat’s. They’re well written, balanced and discussion friendly, just how I like them.

Saturday Spotlight || Mishfish13

Happy Saturday! Happy Valentine’s Day too, I guess. It’s actually quite nice to have Valentine’s Day fall on the day that I like to share some blog love! Makes it a tiny bit more special.

On to today’s spotlight!

Today’s spotlight goes to : Michelle!

Michelle who?

Well, she’s Michelle and I think you are going to love her! I mean, she’s funny, she’s witty, she writes great travel stories and she lives in the states, which means if I can’t sleep she’s still awake and maybe I can catch her on Twitter for a chat.

I’m quite picky with the kinds of travel blogs that I follow, to me there’s nothing more boring than post after post of “top ten things to do…” or “my [insert arbitrary activity] essentials”. I like stories, real stories, real funny stories and there’s always a story on Michelle’s blog. And it’s always funny enough that a bit of snot gets on my screen when I try to hold back my snort laugh.

At the moment, Michelle’s living life back in the States in Austin, Texas but before that she was off gallivanting around having adventures here and there like couch-surfing in Morocco or checking out the castles of Germany or going to Italy or sharing some tasty food recipes.

Maybe you don’t like to read travel blogs because their lives come across as unattainable or the person comes across as a pretentious butthole, you’d think I didn’t like travel blogs the way I write, but if you enjoy stories and a friendly face, then Michelle’s blog is for you! And, she has one of my favourite blog layouts too. I don’t know why that’s important, but maybe you’re attracted to sexy layouts!

Saturday Spotlight || Through The Thicket

It’s nice to be back writing my Saturday Spotlight. I decided to take a break over Christmas and January as I felt really out of sync with everyone’s blogs. Now that it’s February, I feel like I’ve caught up with everyone and can get back to bringing you some great blog suggestions for your Saturday morning.

So, to kick the first Saturday Spotlight of 2015 off…

Let me introduce you to…

Today’s spotlight post goes to Kathryn!

Kathryn who?

All through January, every time I read a post from Kathryn, I knew she was going to be my first Saturday spotlight of the year. A 20-something Canadian with many passions: baking, feminism, cats and more. A dedicated vegan, Kathryn never fails to make me want to give her many delicious looking vegan recipes a try.

The one thing I look for in blog I love to read is variety and Kathryn’s blog is no exception to this rule. With DIYs, great recommendations for TV shows (what can I say, TV is important to my Sunday), a selection a life tales and adventures, food to eat, and food for thought. I’m sure there will be something for you!

Not only is her blog a great place to spend some, but she’s a person you’d probably like to get to know. I’m certainly not complaining about the great conversations I’ve had with Kathryn since she started blogging. Which, was only two months and so ago. Damn, I wish I could be that good at this blogging malarkey.
