Woah, time has flown and its been roughly five months and Style Bubble has made the 500 post mark, which makes that 100 posts a month which means I’m officially a blog nerd.  Part time planner in digital media agency, part time obsessed fashion blogger.  How did I get to this crazy state?  Spotting a new range of funky shoes in a shoe store no longer makes me immediately think ‘Right, I’ll buy those lovelies straight away’, it makes me think ‘Right, something cool for me to write about on the blog.’  Asking pseudo-philosophical and semi-deep questions about fashion no longer means getting quizzical looks from friends and family (you can almost see the question marks floating above their heads).  Instead, I now write my ramblings here in a bid to gain some insight and opinion from you beautiful people.  With a somewhat decent amount of visitors now and a group of people I’d consider "net friends", I’m mostly chuffed and happy.  But the biggest pat on the back doesn’t go to me but to you guys for even bothering to type in Style Bubble in Google, bookmarking the address and linking to me.  Then showing support via emails and comments.  You won’t ever know how much it’s all appreciated.

*Online Group Hug* (Or if you’re not into the hugging thing, polite clapping is also most welcome)

So right, back to talking about me me me, I’d thought I might mark this post with a current state of Susie.  You may not be interested, but with my appalling memory, I just won’t remember what the hell I was doing circa 500 posts old.

Susie is listening to Nico’s Chelsea Girl in a bid to calm the brain right down.

Susie is re-reading the Viceroy’s Daughters by Anne de Courcey and also the new issue of UK Elle which is surprisingly informative.

Susie is currently into shopping at grotty flea market stalls, where dubious characters are selling wares with dubious origins. 

Susie keeps spilling skinny moccas down the nylon trenchcoat but then discovering that if you smudge it away with your fingers, stain miraculously disappears. 

Susie crazily wants this Foley Chelsea mini dress to wear with wooly cream tights and shoe booties. 

Susie is booking tickets to a) go to Paris for much needed soaking up of something other than London and b) flights to go back to Hong Kong for much needed soaking up of cheap food, clothes and the ability to live next to a skyscraper.

Susie is contemplating whether two circles of prominent rouge a la Marie Antoinette is viable.

Susie is wondering if she has sounded like a complete twat talking in third person.

    your blog is really fabulous, i love it.. your style is fashionable and unique and in your texts isnt even a little touch of this snoby fashionista, like many other blogwriters seem to be.. you’re really inspiring and plus, you always make me smile.. Β΄go for the 1000 πŸ˜‰ you’re great!

  29. Gina says:

    I love how Susie’s (or any non-US/American) use of the word “twat” makes me laugh rather than cringe. Seriously, how is it that you (all of you over there on the other side fo the pond/world) get to use such great words so casually? LOL! At any rate, I was toying with the idea of the MA rosey cheeks myself — it strikes me as very “English flower”.

  30. AmΓ©lie says:

  40. agent86 says:

    oh sweetie….i love your blog for the same reasons you write it….i feel the same way when i think about fashion and my friends don’t want to listen to me… the daily ramblings of a fellow fashion freak is really fun. it cheers me up while i’m going through personal problems. you have a very wonderful effect on my day and i can’t explain how much your writing makes me smile….and we tend to have parrallel(sp) obsessions… i’m more of an edie girl, long before sienna πŸ™‚
    check out my site if you wanna:
    keep em coming. and make topshop ship to san francisco. dammit.
    loves ya πŸ™‚

  41. fash ho' says:

    dearest sooze
    congratulations on the 500th post. like everyone else, this is my favouritist blog and something that always makes my day.
    also, like agent86, you seem to just hone in on things that i am thinking about or are currently inspired by – totally diverse and interesting content that balances the undiluted desire for lovely stuff with a kind of gentle interrogation on what’s it all about.
    all this and you just seem really cool!!!!
    three cheers for the Sooze!!!

  42. Elise says:

    Congrats! I hope Style Bubble will be here for a long long time. Your blog is the best out there in my opinion and I would say you’re one of the most inspiring people ever. Yay for Susie!

  43. susie_bubble says:

    OMG… you guys are awesome! πŸ™‚
    Thank you for all the congrats and pats on the back. Yes, let’s hope I do keep posting more of my fashion random-ness. Unless one day I decide to dress in Gap and just not care anymore………
    ….. ok that image made me shudder – banish that thought immediately – of course I’m gonna stay fashion-obsessed for all of eternity! πŸ˜‰

  44. Ruth says:

    Don’t stop :] I love your writing and passion xo

  45. Alice says:

    Congratulations on your 500th post! Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blog. I hope it lasts for at least another 500!!

  46. beth says:

    Congrats on your 500th Susie!!! I freaking love your blog and don’t know what I would do without your frequent interesting posts.
    I loved that dress as well when I saw it at Intermix.
