And the trophy goes to....

.....Me! Well, lookee here, i won me an award! A huuuuuuuuuuge thankyou to Steph of The Panic Room for sharing the love and telling the blogosphere that i am, indeed, brilliant. Now, apparently, i get the chance to share some blog love of my own. There are a couple of rules/guidelines to follow though:

1. I get to put the really cool sticker thingamajiggy on my blog. Please refer to the sparkly looking thing up there .

2. Set up alink to the person who nominated you. See the underlined bit up in that paragraph? Thats the link - go click it.

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs. Well, rules are made to be broken - i dont know if i read seven other blogs that havent already been nominated, but we'll see how we go.

4.Link to those blogs too. Yep, i'm getting to that bit.

5. Leave a message in regards to the blogs you've nominated. Spruik them up a bit hey ?

Alright, here goes. The nominees are:

1. Sheena from If These Walls Could Talk - if you dont already know Sheena, where have you been ? Living under a rock? This woman rules the SA blog scene and rightly so. She's smart, sassy and quite often shit-in-your-pants funny. If you arent reading her blog ( and looking forward to her book .... ) then your missing out!

2. Miss Em from Can You Point Me To The Bar? - tales and tidbits from a fellow 20 Something Blogger. Em has just the right mix of love, laughter and lunacy that I love in a blog. She's a fellow Aussie chick, so if you cant enough of feirce and fabulous Australian women, go to her blog now...

3. Paula from Insert My Blog Name Here - Paula rocks. Paula is like the edgy, funny, adventurous, crazy girl next door. Maybe -if you lived in a flat in the city. Reading her blog, you get the feeling that if you DID live in the flat next door to hers, she'd invite you over for a few drinks and some Guitar Hero at 1am in the morning. Yep - Paula rocks.

4. Rob from Dash Does Kathmandu - this is a relatively new blog written by a not so new blog buddy of mine. Young Rob has bravely uprooted himself from cosy Australian suburbia and planted himself in Nepal. Rob was an insightful kind of guy before he left, he could always be counted for awesome conversation, so just imagine whats going to happen now that he's living the Third World life. Clink on the link and go with!

And those are all the nominees i could come up with. So aside from feeling quite chuffed with myself and flattered that anybody even reads this junk - let alone LIKES it - i came to the conclusion that i need to be reading more blogs. I need to discover new people, new lives, and new adventures - reading a good blog is like reading a good book only you know someone is ACTUALLY living and breathing the story, the thoughts, the feelings.

So i'm handing it over to you. Yep, you. The one reading this right now.I want everybody to send me the link to one really great blog that you think i'd like. The author can be boy, girl, any age, from any country, i dont care. Just recommend something you think i should see.

This is going to be fun!


  1. awwww tanks!

    While we're on the concept of travel, you might like to checkout one of my fellow travellers, she is in Tonga, making waves. Doesn't appear to be updating that much, but what can you do? Checkit "She who hesitates is lost" - a good concept I can believe in.

    BTW, I love that line you have in there "reading a good blog is like reading a good book only you know someone is ACTUALLY living and breathing the story, the thoughts, the feelings." Couldn't have put it better myself.

    Thanks again for the spruik!

  2. like the new bling [congrats] and the general change in scenery, but have you got a matching new photo for the top? And maybe get rid of that yellow rubbish on the right?

  3. I just found your blog, and I'm totally digging the photo at the top. She looks like she's killed a man.

    Not necessarily for awards, but I just started a blog, http://wildarschase.blogspot.com , so check that out if you get a chance.

    And I love the e-cards too "It's been too long since I felt the mortifying regret of a one-night stand."

  4. Hi Andy - thanks, and welcome! I believe thats Lauren Bacall in the pic up there, old school goddess that she is. Thanks for digging my blog.

    MIght just head over and check out yours!

  5. Thank you!!! I'm so flattered, I'm blushing! :) I'd recommend the Chele, aka the tambourine queen if you don't already read her. She's a half thai half scandinavian model who always seems to have something insanely fun (and occasionally just insane) happening in her life and she also has about five different personalities - all with their own name! You can find the link to her on my blog.
