blog crush: cuttings on a blog

please forgive crappy quality of iPhone photo
the latte is for you, B 
i know you do coffee, not tea

yes, dahlings, it's time once again, for an official blog crush. i hereby give you cuttings on a blog--a witty and well-read, well-traveled, belly dancing spanish girl in oxford. what more could one ask? she's learning dressmaking, she had the computer skills to merge several of her multiple blogs into one (some of us would do well to do the same...ahem, ahem). she blogs in two languages...check her spanish language blog here. i'll admit that i can't really read much of it unless she mentions menu items since that's as far as my spanish extends (not that i'm saying she does)--guacamole anyone? she makes lists...like this one of her five rules for life. she's inspiring people from belize to zambia with her thoughts on home. she does beautiful posts on the covers of books.

do i really need to go on? why are you still here? go read her! you won't be sorry.

I love the latte!
You are so creative.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, I'm blushing... Thanks for spreading the love!
So glad you mentioned that I managed to merge my blogs into one. Blogger makes it very easy, but I'm actually really proud that I found out how to do it on my own! Ah, it's the small things...
And thanks for the latte!

She has a nice list of 5 rules. Her font is also fun - retro typewriter.

The last rule was the best.... not to take things personally. Life is just to fast and to short.

I did check out her blog, very insightful - thanks. And I am not much a of a latte person, but who ever created the item in the photo is quite talented.

So sorry, I have mixed my comments up! I thought I was writing on cuttings from a blog! Thanks for sharing that one! What i was mean't to write was: Love the latte! Is that your own picture? If so, how did you get the heart shape on it? Is it possible? Im so sorry to tell you, you have another follower!

How clever and funny of you to admit to "blog crushes" and, in a previous post, to actually stalking your favourite blogs. You see, I thought I was the only one...one of these days I shall take the time to visit some of your "blog crushes". In the meanwhile, I find yours very entertaining indeed.
