Guest post: Gossip Hound

To start of my guest posts I present my good friend Zoe, who I have know since junior school. She is an amazing writer and currently works as a news and feature writer, but dreams of being a fashion writer. My mission is to make Zoe step up her blogging duties over on her site 'The gossip hound' and get herself out there in the crazy world of blogging. So will you help me persuade her? but have a sneak peak of the workings of Zoe first...

As Suzi is sunning herself on Bondi Beach, making love to a koala bear or maybe even scuba diving in the barrier reef, she suggested that I might want to do a guest blog post for her in her absence.

So this past week, a few things have caught my eye and I couldn’t not share them.
Firstly, I’m not a huge fan of exercising, especially when it doesn’t involve dancing in a nightclub surrounded by hordes of sweaty partygoers, but I came across this website and thought it was a great idea. City Jogging Tours  invites you to take a tour of the capital with a twist. Running past Big Ben and jogging along the Embankment, the unique tours take you round London with an experienced runner giving you the chance to visit all the top sites and get fit while you do it!

Secondly, this blog is written by a schoolgirl who is causing quite a stir by taking pictures of her daily school dinners. Guaranteed to ruffle a few feathers, she is giving his meals a score out of ten before uploading them for the world to feast their eyes on. Just when Jamie Oliver had thought he had seen the last of potato crockets and turkey dinosaurs.

Lastly, the big fashion thing of the week for me has been the discovery of this fantastic website virgoslounge. I was pointed in its direction by my good friend Harriet, who was at first a bit dubious to pass on the address as it is such a fab find! But as soon as I checked it out, my shopping list just got longer and more expensive; there are so many gorgeous pieces on there.

Another style hit for me this week was when I came across this brilliant idea. This special fashion prediction website has been specially designed to help avid fashionistas keep on top on the latest colour trends. Tiny cameras were installed in the fashion capitals of Europe, Milan, Paris and Antwerp and trained to detect the passing shades to help determine which colours are worn most often. I think it's a genius idea!
