So, the Cat hasn't blogged for quite a while now.
Oh my, it's getting dusty in here.
So. For the two of you out there who have been reading these lines (ok, just for the ONE of you. As I'm told, imaginary friends don't count)... the Cat is back.
She has been thinking about the whole blogging thing for quite a while now. I mean, where is this blog going? It's definately not a fashion blog, or a food blog, or a poetry blog, so...? And a few days ago, a lovely fashion blogger, Maria Kotsari from Go Stylish (www.mariakotsari.blogspot.com) reminded the Cat something she had forgotten: blogging is about being unique. The only direction you need to have, is towards yourself...
And exactly there, lies the problem. The Cat is not sure about the direction her life is taking, not sure exactly about who she is as the years go by. But, the Cat's Mother is a Virgo and if she has taught the Cat anything, is that the only way to impose order in your emotional mess, is to deal with the mess surrounding you. In other words, clean that desk. Rearrange these book piles. Give away all the lip glosses you don't need.
So the Cat has started cleaning up in here. And on her way to writing about what inspires her right now, she started reading blogs again. And she realised that apart from her all time classic favorites like Fashion Architect, LFoF, Soho Symposium, Kataifi, Alecca Rox, Life in Athens and of course her beloved Sara Von from Yes and Yes who is a constant inspiration (for all these links, see left column, the one with the Douglas Adams quote. Yes, the one about potatoes), lately she has discovered a few new blogging fixes (new to the Cat, mind you, not new to blogging). Wanna see?

Little Stylist is fresh and honest. The Cat rather enjoys her fashion book reviews!

The Cat actually just discovered Mirror Diaries and she is very pleasantly surprised. I mean, the clothes! The style! The attitude! The girl, plainly, rocks.

In Anne's Cake Party, the Cat realised that she shares a passion for sweets and baking with the lovely author. And us baking lovers gotta stick together. Because life's better when it's sweet, and all that jazz.

And last, but not least, Not Your Usual Wedding. Margarita is a wedding stylist from whom we must expect great things. I adore the way she approaches words and clothes and celebrates uniqueness. If I ever were to marry I would trust her to help me narrate my love story via my wedding dress. Until then, I just visit her blog and sigh over all the lovely girls who dared to defy "rules". Oh, and this particular photo is inspiring for yet another reason: the Cat craves that hair colour.
So, I would like to thank these aforementioned bloggers for inspiring me and helping me write a new post after such a long time.
With a little help from fabulous ladies, it's actually not that cold inside after all...
