Some nice things people have said about Wee Birdy

‘Our Top 5 Design Blogs’
It’s My Generation Blog (June 26, 2013, UK)

“After we’d spent about ten or fifteen minutes composing ourselves following our first glimpse of that banner – oh, the glorious and delightful banner – it really hit us just how gorgeous this site is. We’re willing to offer a free pass on aesthetics if there’s some solid content, but Wee Birdy is the stuff of dreams and we’d have it no other way. Beyond that, the content is rich, informative and engaging, showcasing a menagerie of design, whether it be fashion, interiors, homeware or whatever else. This blog has many accolades to its name and more than deserves each one of them.

The recent blog post we most love is a guide to classic buys for this month, a piece which is as useful as it is lovely. As indicated by the title, this blog post offers suggestions on the best products to buy this summer which provide the glorious timelessness sought after by fashionistas the world over. The selections are absolutely on-point, indicating an understanding of the fashion timeline and recognition of the kinds of design which never age. Intelligence and charisma – an unbeatable combo, as always.

Let us know what you think of these excellent design blogs and their contributors – we hope you love them as much as we do. Design is a universal and ever-progressive spectrum we’re enormously proud to be a part of.”

‘Wee Birdy’
India Knight’s Posterous (13 October, 2009)

“This is one of my favourite blogs of all time – essential reading if you like lovely things; I only wish she’d blog every ten minutes. (We’re going for a coffee next week – I think she may be slightly taken aback by the extent of my love). Her most recent entry is about Nathalie Lete, who it turns out is the genius that designed the Anthropologie (10 days til it opens on Regent Street, pant pant < with excitement, not as in knickers) plates I wrote about the other week. Have a look at her blog right now – it’s total heaven from start to finish.”

“If you’re stuck in your chair at work and fancy a bit of armchair travelling when you’re not glued to Facebook, or are planning a trip to London, I suggest you visit this fresh-for-the-picking blog – exquisite in words and pictures. Former Sydney magazine editor, and current freelance journalist, Rebecca Lowrey Boyd and her partner are sharing a flat in London, from which she produces weebirdy.com, a blog primarily about shopping, style and beauty. The layout is gorgeous and each post is a visual treat. Rebecca’s writing is exciting, succinct and cute. Her latest post on Mrs Kibble’s Olde Sweet Shoppe gave me sugar cravings. Daily Candy, eat your heart out…”

Weebirdy introduces you to the cool and the quirky, the colourful and the mad. I’m in love. I could try to sum it all up in wordy fashion but I think the site tweets for itself. You an also follow the Top Bird behind Weebirdy on Twitter here.”

“Weebirdy is not specifically a Christmas website, but it is so lovely I couldn’t wait to share it any longer! Weebirdy is based in London and is all about everything women love: fashion, beauty, design, food, people, travel and more. One of the things that make this blogsite so special is the gorgeous photography in each entry. Look at London snowed in, visit indie shops and drool over the color and variety of the offerings. See unique handmade treasures of all kinds. Find links to places to see and things to do and read reviews of related books. It’s really a lovely read and well worth your time. Go to the site, www.weebirdy.com and type in Handmade Christmas Part 1 to see some extraordinary holiday baking ideas. Beautiful!”
