Utterly Awesome Blog: A Thrifty Mrs

Awesomely thrifty Mrs

Here is this week’s Utterly Awesome Blog, and it’s a new favourite of El’s. And it’s written by another El!

It’s superscrimpingly awesome.

It’s A Thrifty Mrs

It’s thrifty, but generous with the awesome sauce.

We like this post about how to make your own lemon lip scrub and we are planning to have a go at making some this weekend.

The posts are all really well written and you will like them even if you’re not going to try the tips. The photos are great too.

El thoroughly enjoys reading the money saving tips and she has no need to be thrify as she is only 12 and thrifty-ness is Jae’s job. (Jae is not so sure about this).

El, meet El

We met El, the real life Thrifty Mrs at Cybher and she was really nice even though she could’ve been cross not to be the only blogging El. She has been on Superscrimpers AND Harry Hill’s TV Burp. (We almost went to a different talk. Phew!)

She seems like a really nice person so go check out her blog!

I’m serious. Read it. NOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! GIVE HER YOUR LOVE!!!!! SHE’S AWESOME!

We have got a special badge for you A Thrifty Mrs! We will email you the code (people have been having trouble with the code)

Utterly Awesome Blog: Phileas Dogg

Utterly Awesome Dog Blog!

Here is this week’s Utterly Awesome Blog – and it isn’t even written by a human!

Before there was Pudsey on Britain’s Got Talent, an even more talented dog has been at work. Phileas Dogg is a travel blog written by Attlee the dog.

We like this blog because:

It’s a dog! Giving his opinion! Not like boring human travel which is all blah blah service station blah blah country cottage etc. As well as Attlee there’s a French correspondent who tells you about his life. We are not entirely sure how his paws manage to type on the keyboard, but if Pudsey can walk backwards like a man then dogs can do anything.

It’s really really funny. Even if you don’t like dogs and you’re not going anywhere, you will like it.

We have met Attlee! He came to our house on New Year’s Day and was very cute. Still waiting for his report from Brighton though. Attlee is a very sweet dog.

He uses great words like Amaze-bones and is always looking for SAUSAGES.

Attlee agreed to answer some questions so we could find out the secret of his awesomeness:

Why are you so awesome?

I am so awesome because I am a dog who can write and there aren’t many hounds who can do that: not even Pudsey, I’ve heard.

Why is your blog so awesome?

My blog is so awesome because I go to pubs, hotels, restaurants and cafes all over Britain so I can tell other dogs what they’re like. Humans are interested in stuff like is the chef on television and do they have a good wine list. But dogs are interested in stuff like do they serve SAUSAGES, will the staff recognise me as the superior life form I am and are there any old-fashioned lampposts for me to add my pee to centuries of other dog pee on?

Where is your favourite place?

Even though I have travelled the country, my favourite place is my local park, two minutes walk from my house. I am top dog in the pack there, even though some of the other dogs are three times the size of me. They respect me because I have a job and an important one at that.

Where would you like to go that you haven’t been to yet? 

The Ritz because when I have been to The Ritz I will know I have truly arrived.

Why did you start a blog?

I started a travel blog because when we are travelling Dodger the cat I have to share my home with is left behind. Dodger is too clever by half so having a break from him  giving me the evils all the time is very relaxing.

If you could sell Jane for a SAUSAGE, would you?

For a whole string of sausages, I’d consider it. Make me an offer

(Jane is Attlee’s owner. If I was her, I’d be worried)

Congratulations Attlee, you are now in the select club of Eljae’s Utterly Awesome Blogs. And we will give you five sausages and a blow up lamp post for Jane, she is pretty awesome too.

Here is the code you need to create your special badge:

Sorry it’s not a sausage

Cybher – our day in sketches

El and Jae at Cybher!

We are all pooped out today because we spent yesterday at Cybher, the blogging conference for women (and girls) who blog.

El was mega chuffed to meet another El – it was superstar blogger El from A Thrifty Mrs, as seen on Superscrimpers and Harry Hill’s TV Burp. WE LOVE YOU EL.

El, meet El

We also met the guys from the Leather Satchel Company, which was great because El takes one of their satchels to school every day – we love them too.

And we met the Disney people and told them the world needs More Muppets, so hopefully they will take heed.

At lunchtime we had a crisp shaped like a heart! And other stuff too of course.

The crisp of love

We liked the pink lights, sweeties on the table and the cool bags.

El recorded the day in sketches, and here are some of them:

What’s it called again?

We loved Biba‘s talk about apps, and even more we loved the bunny hair clip in her hair. At least we think it was a hair clip, and not a tiny baby bunny perched very still.

That’s one appy bunny

Everywhere you looked, people were tweeting and iPading at the tables:

Sketching is like tweeting from the past

El had no iPhone so she had to make her own:

No batteries required

We went to some workshops and picked up some great blogging tips:

They don’t teach us this stuff in school!

Everybody we met was really nice, it was like a big friendly community:

Oh yes we are

We found out lots of things about technology:

Make friends with your tech

We learned how to re-design your blog:

Bloggybloggyblogblog.com that is

A big hello to all the lovely bloggers we met at Cybher, thanks to Sian for putting it all together.

Oh yeah!

El & Jae 🙂
Cybher-riffic!
