Sunday Times Best 100 Blogs!
"Sometimes it takes outsider eyes to refocus your surroundings for you. Here is
a native of Sydney whose blog registers all things good/unknown about her
new home, London. Wee Birdy pokes around the back streets of the city for
the best shops and sights, so you don’t have to."
And I'm thrilled to be included alongside darling Liberty London Girl. Her beautifully-written blog is totally addictive reading and leaves me dreaming of running amok in Manhattan:
"Rather like having your own — real — version of The Devil Wears
Prada as a blog. An anonymous twentysomething Brit working as the
fashion director of a New York-based glossy gives the lowdown on what her
glamorous life is really like. Both self-deprecating and outspoken, it’s a
tonic if you suspect Sex and the City is all a big lie."
Also making the list is Mrs Trefusis, who recently sent me a rather sweet email about my arthritic toes/shoe crisis. Here's what they had to say about her:
"Mrs Trefusis Takes a Taxi (“because she eschews sensible shoes”) is by a
London woman with a passion for modish footwear and Mr Trefusis
(Manolo-Man). Urbane thoughts from one whose brow is considerably higher
than her subject matter suggests."
