Who would have thought the blogosphere would have changed my life so radically in such a short time?
I get recognized in airports and on planes and in all kinds of interesting places that life takes me, by readers of the Corinna B’s World blog. From the Prada store in Montevarchi to the Affaires cabin on Air France, from Bondi beach to random stores on Robertson, even at driver intro’s on the infield at Nascar, readers come talk to me about the blog.
Its unexpected but fun!
And I find myself immersed in the blog world. When I have downtime on set I’m reading blogs on my ipad. Early morning coffee with blogs is my favorite way to start anyday.
Blogs have become the fastest way to access brand new information.
Whatever it is that you are interested in, there are a plethora of blogs devoted to that subject.
One of my goals this year is to devote Saturdays to re-posting some of my favorites writers out there in bloggie-land.
Hopefully it will be a resolution that lasts longer than my diet resolutions!
Here is my first re-post, and it is from a fun and inspired travel and decorating blog (2 of my favorite pass times) called

Design Notes from Amarvilas, India
Hi, everybody, I’m back!
Like all my past trips to India, I’m back with fresh new inspiration. These are a few design notes I took around the Oberoi Rajvilas where I stayed in Jaipur.
Between the architecture and decor, I couldn’t stop snapping photos. More than anything, I’m really inspired to inject more color into my home now.
In addition to inspiration, I also brought back a couple of extra pounds and I don’t mean just in my suitcase! (If you follow me on Twitter, you saw that I ate nonstop. As a vegetarian, there’s no better place to eat in the world than India.) So today we diet. And we also tackle the mountain of laundry and bursting inbox. Home sweet home!

I’m also including Ally Kim’s “About” section from her blog.
She is so interesting, and her perspective comes from a life well traveled.
I almost wish I lived inside her “About” section….
FROM THE RIGHT BANK is an online journal where I chronicle the decorating of my house, starting with my inspiration files to step-by-step decisions to the finished rooms.
I also share inspirational ideas, clippings from all the foreign magazines and design books I collect, great hotel design and design notes with original photography from my travels.
I’m a professional dabbler interested in just about everything but I live for interior design. I consult on interiors projects and contribute to various publications and websites when I’m not rearranging the furniture in my own house.
I describe my style as global modern with a particular fondness for French and Scandinavian styles. It’s a point of view that has evolved from having lived in Europe, Asia and on both coasts of the US and from frequent international travels. I have soaked up museums, historic sites and design scenes across five continents and studied art in New York and Paris and all of these experiences influence my style.
FTRB was started in January 2009 as an online inspiration journal for my new home. I had moved from the right bank of Paris to Seattle so I named it FROM THE RIGHT BANK TO THE LEFT COAST and patted myself on the back for coming up with such a clever name . . . until I moved to Atlanta. Yeah, I didn’t see that coming. So now it’s just FROM THE RIGHT BANK.
