Wow, July has flown by. I've had a lovely group of sponsors for this month, and I'm really pleased to introduce you properly to them all. Oh and I asked a couple of questions to each sponsor as well, just so you can get to know them even a teensy bit better..
What's your favorite holiday destination and activity?
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Grab a cup of tea, a cookie, a cushion and snuggle down, you've got some great sites to visit, right about now!
Miss Evil Kitty reworks vintage beads and modern beads into everyday ware for women of all ages, We love romantic and whimsical, noir, old Hollywood and nature. And most of the time I’m able to mix all of them into small series or are one of a kind jewellery and accessories.
I would love to be in Mexico during dia de los muertos. Its a Holiday my family doesn't celebrate.
Am bit of both. I tend to stay up late and look for supplies for my jewellery and accessories.
Jolly Good is run by me, Helen, from the corner of my bedroom in not so sunny Scotland. I make fun jewellery, accessories and illustrations and I especially love creating items that mix my love of jewellery with my passion for doodling. I also run the Jolly Good blog, where I show my work, share inspirations and generally witter own about things I get up to. Until the end of July, get 15% in the Jolly Good shop with the code KITTYANDBUCK
This is a tricky question, there are so many places I'd like to go and things I'd like to do that it's hard to pick just one. I'd love to go to Norway and stay in an Ice Hotel. I hate being cold but they just look so magical.
I am definitely more of a night owl. It's hard to get any sense out of me in the mornings, nevermind anything creative so later in the day is always more productive. Most of my Jolly Good creations are made in the evenings, once I finish my days job, or at the weekends.
Hello! My name is Chloe and I blog over on Lazy Explorers. There, I share with you my inspirations, outfits, crafts and DIY, and adventures. Stop by and say hello!
Dream destination: London! I would love to visit all the shops and ride a double-decker bus!
As of lately I have been a night owl, but as soon as the fall semester begins I will once again be an early bird!
hey! I'm Polly and i blog over at this enchanted pixie. I'm a full time crafty mama to three home-schooled girls, living in the hills and valleys of North Wales. I blog daily about our life, my crafts and a little inspiration. i also design and make bohemian jewellery which i sell in my shop of the same name!
My dream holiday destination would be to visit Morocco and explore all it has to offer!
Definitely a night owl.... thankfully my kiddos are the same!
Swonderful Boutique is a cute & sassy boutique store in Wellington, NZ- the coolest little capital in the world! Swonderful is owned by Mother / daughter duo Ginny & Frances. Ginny & Frances design & make about 60% of the stock in their cute shop under their label Papercup. Papercup specializes in vintage inspired frocks & skirts but the ladies also design printed tees and totes which are all made locally in Wellington. Swonderful Boutique aims to embrace local, independent & emerging designers but most of all they aim to have fun doing what they love!
(Ginny) My dream destination is the great American road trip (much like you have done Shell!) I would love to pack up my 16 month old daughter & boyfriend and travel coast to coast in a caravan sampling vegan treats and culture along the way...
(Ginny) I am a night owl! I really struggle with mornings, having a baby has not made this any easier- everyday is a battle. However I usually get a burst of creative energy at night & could happily stay up working. I am in the process of training myself out of these habits!
Hello! I'm Jessie from My Mod Style. My blog used to only focus on Interior Design, but I have branched out to so much more over the years. I love sharing bits of my life with my readers and things that I am passionate about. I love inspiring people and making them smile. Some of my interests and blog topics are saving whales, animals, being vegan, the environment, thrifting, fashion, photography, decorating, my travels and just whatever else I feel like at the moment. Isn't that what is great about blogging? You get to be you! I love connecting with people who have the same interests and passions as I do. I believe in living life to the fullest and making the most out of everyday. Please come by my blog and say hello.
The list grows longer and longer everyday. I will say that going to Disney World is very fun! I have gone twice, not counting when I was a small child. My husband and I are going again this September! If someone asked me today, what one place I would go in the world, it would probably be Antarctica. Sound crazy? I am a huge fan of the Sea Shepherds and watch the TV show Whale Wars. I see the footage of Antarctica on television and it just looks breath taking. Especially when a huge whale jumps out of the water! Beautiful. I would love to feel that connection with nature out there in the middle of the ocean.
I have become an early bird in my old age! HA! I used to be able to stay up all night long. Those days are long gone. Since my husband is in the military he has to get up early everyday. Which means I also get up early and have gotten used to it. On the weekend we even get up around 5:00 am! It's horrible. I don't even know what sleeping in is anymore. I will say though, I look forward to that first cup of coffee every morning!
Hi there Kitty and Buck readers! My name is Lindsay and I blog on The Lovely Things Are. The Lovely Things Are is a blog that shares my life as a college student just trying to figure out what I want from this life. I focus on what all the lovely things are in my life and how I can use them to better myself and stay motivated! Life is a wonderful thing that should not be wasted, so I hope you'll stop by and join me on my little bloggy's journey!
Actually it is probably visiting Australia and New Zealand! I would love to spend time on the beaches there, but most of all I want to see kangaroos, cheesy I know. I'll actually finally get to fulfill this dream over my Christmas holiday :)
A night owl without a doubt. I am the crankiest morning person I know and somehow seem to get MUCH more done at 3:00 in the morning. I've been that way since I was an infant according to my parents!
Hello! I'm Anne and I am a dutch illustrator and catlady! My blog is about my day to day life, which is mostly my illustration work and the nature surrounding my house, but I might throw some taxidermy, films, cats, thriftfinds, crafts, recipes and handsewn clothing in there too!
I'm really bad at traveling. I get homesick very easily and can not stand to be away from home for more than a few days. But there is one place in the world I really didn't want to leave when I visited; New York. I was in New York for 10 whole days and I could have stayed there a whole lot longer. I would just wander around the streets, buy cheap books, drink coffee in shabby diners and visit art galleries.
Early bird, for sure! I love waking up early, mostly because of the smell and sounds of being outside in the morning. But also because I have the most energy and get a lot of things done!
HANDMADE LOVING! UNIQUELY COLORFUL PATTERNS FOR YOUR LEGS!
Uptights, limited edition quirkily elegant leggings and
skirts, designed and individually handmade in Australia (with love) in
my Sydney based studio. Ideal for yoga, office work, sun worship,
theatre going, character flaunting and all things in between. Uptights
focuses on designing uniquely inspiring prints which extend the
realms of reality into kaleidoscope birds, pac-man grandpa pajamas and
floating green eyed cats, to name just a few.
Travelling to Crete (Greek Island) and swimming in the Mediterranean sea. Amazing part of the world! Wish I could be there right now.( Especially when I'm sitting here typing on my computer wearing a beanie and gloves:-( )
Both, I guess:-) Maybe better in the morning however with a good cup of earl grey tea and a bit of ABC radio national in the background:-) Yep, I'm a bit of a grandma.
Hello my name is Lauren & I blog over at Tastes Like Love about my daily adventures with my husband and friends, my custom portraits and illustrations, fancy folk and delightful things! I spend half my time working at my favourite cafe, drawing custom portraits and pictures of cute girls, scouting for new dresses and blogging. And the other half of my time with my husband going on dinner dates, picnics and having movie nights. I would love it if you stopped by to say hello!
I'm currently dreaming of visiting New York. After my cousins wedding in Bali early next year, Luke & I will start saving for the Big Apple! And when we're there I want to buy a cheesy I love NY shirt and take cheesy touristy photos everywhere!
I am a night owl by nature and always feel most inspired and motivated to do things during the evenings. However, I start work most mornings at 7 am and try to stay in the routine on my days off.
Hi! I'm Kyla, a designer/illustrator residing in Providence, RI. My blog is my inspiration board; I blog about anything and everything that inspires me. This includes: fashion, design, illustration, what I wore, products I love, just to name a few.
My dream vacation changes quite often, but right now I'm all about visiting Tokyo. I've been really interested in the Japanese culture, especially in a bustling city like Tokyo. I would love to have a Lost In Translation moment getting thrown into the culture. Plus, Tokyo street style is pretty amazing. I'd also love to visit London; it's been on my list for as long as I can remember.
I used to be such a night owl, but my day job as a designer requires me to be at work at 8, so I'm becoming more of an early bird as I get older. As long as there's coffee, I'll get up as early as I can ;)
Hi Friends, I'm Stephanie! Take-Hart is a personal blog devoted to my love of style, photography, bunnies, music, and last but not least: my husband, Nate! You'll find lots of photos of our daily life together, my outfits, our travels, and yes- our two sweet bunnies, Biscuit and Freckles. While Take-Hart is focused mainly on fashion and photography, I try my best to weave in honest pieces of my daily life. I love the idea that we as bloggers are a community and that this is a place to find strength, inspiration, and new friendships! I hope you'll stop by and say hello!
My *dream* holiday destination right now is Hawaii. Nate and I went there on our honeymoon two years ago and I've been dreaming of our return since the day we left. I'm pretty easy to please in the activities department as I am completely satisfied to be a beach bum all day long! BUT if I had to choose a place that I've never been and am dying to visit - Paris!
I have always, always been a night owl! I desperately want to be a morning person, and I've tried all sorts of tricks to make myself one! Unfortunately it would appear that I am just wired to be a cranky person in the AM. I'm hoping that once I have kids this will change a bit!
Hello, I'm Nat. I'm a blogger, graphic designer, font fanatic, dessert foodie and a bit of a daydreamer. I blog here at Modern Buttercup and enjoy writing about my daily doings, latest inspiration and whimsical things. I love pretty things and constantly inspired by the little things in life.
I live in beautiful California and proud owner of a little fishie named Bubbles. I enjoy finding cute vintage pieces to put on my shelf (my latest? A smiling pear) I love going on adventures and walking barefoot on the beach.
I would love to go to Australia. The scenery is so pretty over there and it would be amazing to scuba dive and see the coral at the Great Barrier Reef!
Night owl for sure. I can not wake myself up early easily but can stay up pretty late! Plus, I prefer nighttime.
My name is Violet and I blog over at Blythe Ponytail Parades, a compilation blog featuring my photography and progress with the business, food and crafts! Come on over if you enjoy vintage inspired photography, tutorials and DIYs, new decadent recipes or a load of inspiration to brighten your day!
Pretty sure everyone that knows me knows how badly I want to see Loch Ness!
NIGHT OWL. For sure.
Hi there. It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Kate Henley, a writer girl and life coach in training who spends the majority of her days sat in front of a tiny but delightfully decorate desk , typing away at good speed, sipping on iced coffee and listening to music from previous, much more imaginative decades that were not so inclined to sing songs about sex and clubbing (sorry Chingy).
I'm the lady behind Kate Henley e-courses and e-books, including Sass, Class and Badass. I'm also a feature writer for High Tea Cast , a wonderfully cheeky British blog, a regular blogger for the Better Blogger Network and a weekly writer for the Love You Project, where I talk positivity, empowerment, sassiness and inspiration for young women!
My Billie is a space where I aim to interact with interesting people and
other creatives. I try not to put an emphasis on too much of any one
thing, but you'll definitely find fashion DIYs, posts about my everyday
life and words that are meant to be encouraging.
