1. Healthy Happy Life
We asked the editors of this blog what constitutes a healthy, happy life? Their answer:
The purpose of this web site is to share our lifestyle with you and answer the three questions of physical, emotional, and relationship health. We all desire to have a healthy, happy life and though we may not have all the answers, we’d like to share some of the secrets that have helped us achieve success.
2. Art imitates life: My He(ART)-Full Life by Soraya Nulliah
Soraya Nulliah covers all the boundaries, blogging about DIY projects, painting techniques, motherhood and life. She tells us:
Initially I set up my blog to get my art “out there” and to challenge myself — that was the hazy idea I had. Over this past year though, blogging has ignited my creativity, provided a sense of community: real friends and kindred spirits that I have met along the way. For me, blogging has been as much about the inner journey of unearthing mySELF as it has been about connecting with others.
Soraya hopes that you’ll find creative inspiration, interconnectedness and a different point of view from her blog!
3. Fine art for animal lovers: Denise Laurent
As an artist who clearly loves animals, Denise Laurent’s work explores the unique personalities of her subjects with an intimacy and deftness of touch while filling her canvas with warmth and humor. Her style has made her a popular artist, exhibiting both in the UK and abroad. Her blog showcases new work, paintings in progress and exhibitions.
