Guest Blogger Interviews March 2012, and the winner of my blog giveaway!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Ly Zhang of 'Eternal Optimist' - the winner of my blog giveaway!

Ly Zhang of 'Eternal Optimist' 

1) Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
I'm Ly (Lee) from the little blog, Eternal Optimist. I'm a recent college graduate who's franticly studying for the MCATs because I can't bear to wait another minute not being a part of Doctors without Borders.
2) How you first got involved in with blogging?
After graduating I noticed that due to the lack of time I've "lost" all my hobbies. After contemplating for months I decided to start a lifestyle/fashion blog. I blog about a various range of topics from beauty DIYs to cooking to fashion. Since I'm on an endless quest to discover my personal style I also egoistically post about my daily outfits. I may not have style that elicits profound emotions or intrigues street photgs, but I dress for me and I'm okay with that. So if any of those topics interest you feel free to come stalk me over at my blog!
3) Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
Someone once told me that whatever you're doing while you're procrastinating is what you should be doing as your job. In that case, I should be either a professional blog reader and/or reality tv show obsessor. There are so many blogs out there that I enjoy from, fashion to strictly cooking. I, of course, adore Natalie's blog. Her style is too die for! She embodies both  edginess and romance. I also love Ring My Bell, Smitten Kitchen, The Cherry Blossom Girl, A Beautiful Mess, and The Rockstar Diaries. Just to name a couple (okay, seven).

Betty of 'Bettys Bites' - A beautiful food blog

Betty of 'Bettys Bites'

1) Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?
I'm a happy -go-lucky type of gal, always doing something (I have trouble sitting still haha) I am an instagrammer ('betsybooboos' if you want to check out what I've been nomming on lately!), Nowadays even though my blog is on a mini-hiatus (I shall be back soon I promise!) I am still happily snapping up pictures of food either with my iphone or my Nikon D90. When I am NOT eating my heart out, I like to do yoga and kick boxing, but my true passion lies in the kitchen - I love to cook and bake!
2) How you first got involved in with blogging?
I started my blog Bettys Bites because I loved eating out and taking photos of my food, and I thought it would be fun to combine the two and publish it online for others to read. However, I also started baking and cooking things at home so sharing recipes became a part of my blog as well :)
3) Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
Jules clancy of ""
Jules's recipes are simple, quick and healthy and delicious! I have made a few of her recipes and all without fault with such ease I am so thankful to have found her on the interweb as alot of my lunches and dinners have come from her site.

Maria of ""
Maria's recipes are earthy, healthy, and so natural she promotes eating and living healthy which is a big goal of mine in life.

Lorraine of ""
Lorraine is so quirky and funny I love that she posts every single day and its never about the same thing she is always travelling and makes sure she shares every single foodie moment with us.

Steph of ""
Steph's photography is amazing and the things she bakes is sometimes seemingly out of a fairytale cook book very magical!

Elissa of ""
Elissa is a sweet young girl who has a passion for baking and everything she makes looks totally and utterly delicious
