Versatile Blogger Award



I was recently nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Matt in this post. Thanks Matt!

Rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award, and leave a link to their blog
  2. Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself
  3. Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly
  4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award (I decided 10 was enough ;-))

Here are 7 things about me:

1. I have been introduced to strangers by people saying “meet Yvonne, she has her own private shoe collection”.

2. The first pair of shoes I bought on my own was when I was 5 years old. My dear Dad gave me $50 and sent me shopping as my Mum worked after school – as a parent it’s a dangerous thing to do as I never got over the thrill of buying shoes;-)

3. I am a self confessed shopaholic – this does not mean I have to buy but I do have to go to the shops every few days  – otherwise I get withdrawal symptoms;-)

4. I am a chocoholic and truly believe chocolate can cure almost anything – but this is not news if you have read the “About Me” page of my blog.

5. When all else fails I will put on my running shoes and go for a run.

6. I once lived in London for a year – great fun!

7. You will always find piles of fashion, food and interior design magazines in my lounge – despite having an iPad – I need to be able to flick through the pages!

I nominate the following blogs:


White Rose

Amy Eade




Simply Jane

Sweet Somethings

Kate Matthews

Musings of a makeup enthusiast

If you do the nomination, please leave a comment on this post, I’d love to see what you say about yourself.

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. I’m a shopaholic too, nothing really beats retail therapy! And I love shoes, I would keep buying them too, if I hadn’t run out of space for them 🙂 great post 🙂
