Meet and Greet – A welcome to new bloggers – Makeovers, Music and Reviews

meet and greetI have met some terrific bloggers this week who cover a very wide range of topics from makeovers to house and gardens, latest in fashions and music and of course writers and poets. I think you will find something for everyone so without any further delay… let’s meet them.

Meet Kirsty of Embracing Authenticity is 17 year’s old and has already experienced harsh reality in the form of Anorexia Nervosa. In her blog she shares her experiences in a very mature way as she faces the challenge of moving through what is a devastating eating disorder.

Those of you who pop in regularly know that I am not a fan of diet or full leaded fizzy drinks or most of the industrially produced fluids sold at an exhorbitant price. Great to see Millennial Survival Blog by Britt Berner giving such excellent fitness and nutritional advice..

  1. It is so sweet of you to include me in your Smorgasbord. So unexpected, and for me, unprecedented, that I did a double-take, thinking the link was spam.
    Thank you so much. I have enjoyed reading your diverse posts.
