People, something strange has happened. A fun-flattering-feel-good-kind-of-strange thing. Varun form over at Vie Hebdomadaires has nominated me for a Liebster award. Out of the blue. Just like that.
Thank you, Varun!
And because I have to nominate five of my favourite blogs, I’m being forced to do the impossible. Choose.
1) The Adventures of Potli Baba: Nabila’s new travel blog is so awesome. Every post makes me want to just chuck it all and take off. Given that travelling is a big preoccupation, and I live with the perennial feeling that I don’t do nearly enough of it in real life, her travel blog with a difference takes me on these magical, quick escapes every now and then.
2) The New Vitruvian Man: is good friend Anand’s den of all the best things in life. Good design, good food, good music. And it’s where I go for hand drawn recipes with scientific precision and when I want to dive int a minefield of music.
3) sidewaystosound: Mana’s bouncy, trippy jig into a world of music less known. It’s always fun to listen. Sideways, is not so bad, as I discovered.
4) Food-dee-dum: Praerna’s awesome blog which is my version of cooking for dummies (like me). Home food, fancy intimidating food, happy food, good food — all in one warm, homely spot. Praeru has been my faithful partner in many culinary discoveries, sometimes sharing recipes, enthusiasm and encouragement and most of all, inspiration.
5) Tin Roof Press: for Janine’s awesome art, quirky stories and gorgeous pictures. There’s always something honest and refreshing about her blog, and it makes me wish I could go back to art really seriously. So I keep going back in the hope that someday the inspiration will kick in and I will put ink to paper again.
So, there. It’s kind of all about spreading the love. Kind of like what blogging is all about, to me. And I just shared the five blogs of a 100+ that I frequent. So go on you guys, share the love! Here are the rules for the Liebster Blog Award:
