Since I started blogging some months ago I have found some incredible blogs and some amazing bloggers. I am so grateful for all of this, I've heard it many times and now I can vouch for it, it's one of the most fantastic activities ever. Full of inspiration, love, ideas and beautiful images. One of the things I love most is meeting new fellow bloggers, and a great way to do it is through "blog exchanges" as I like to call it, short interviews that allow us to meet the person behind the writing. So at the end of last year I thought I would love to have some great bloggers over and ask them some short questions. I based my questionnaire on Vanity Fair's"My Stuff" feature (which I personally love). And today, I have the lovely Helen who has Manilla Made. A beautiful blog about her handmade ethical creations and others too; a blog where you can find gorgeous little inspirational ideas that I'm sure you will love.
I contacted Helen last year (aka, last month), and she has been incredibly kind to answer the questionnaires and I'm very happy to present her to all of you. I'm hoping to have a regular series of lovely people to present you, If you'd like to participate, I'll be very happy, so just shout! **I'm really excited!**
