I don’t think I’ve ever done a post about some of the blogs I read, and shame on me for that! As a blogger, I love reading other blogs and interacting wth fellow bloggers. I’m subscribed to quite a few on WordPress, Bloglovin’ and by email so there’s always something to look at. I’ve selected just a few of my favorites–some you might know, others are probably new. Either way, I hope you find something you enjoy as much as my blog (obviously)!!!
Just me, Leah
I love, love, LOVE this site. I’ve only been reading Leah’s blog since around Christmas but I think she’s the bees knees. I was introduced to her blog by a friend and fellow blogger (see next listing) who was taking part in Leah’s Love Every Body workshop. Just me, Leah’s emphasis is on plus-sized fashion but also looks at makeup, hair and self esteem (hence the Love Every Body workshop!). Leah oozes positivity and is insanely gorgeous and funny. If you’re not already reading her blog, you darn well should be.
I met Lynsey a few years ago (REALLY??!!) here in London. A fellow American, she was here for classes and I met her at the tail end of her time here. She’s a great gal and her blog has come a long way despite still being a baby blog! Eternally Wanderlyn has a little something for everyone–travel, food, beauty, you name it. She’s also taking part in Leah’s Love Every Body workshop.
The Beauty Gypsy
I’ve really gotten into beauty blogs of late and I have to say The Beauty Gypsy is one of my absolute favourites. It’s a bit different to the normal makeup tutorial/review sites in that The Beauty Gypsy tends to stay in the realm of natural remedies and organic tips and tricks and many are DIY at home recipes which I think is fab. I haven’t tried any just yet, but I’ve only been following for a few weeks so you can bet I will be!
The Small Things Blog
This is probably one of the more popular and well known blogs on the list. Despite its popularity, I wanted to include this site because it’s just so damn beautiful and has some pretty easy to follow hair tutorials. But there’s more to Kate’s site than hair, let me tell you! I’ve discovered some great makeup products via her site and love looking at her photos (all of which are gorgeous).
Ok, so this goes without saying. Even though I’m a reviewer for the site, JC is my go to site for book reccomendations. Nominated for Cosmo’s Lifestyle Blog of the Year in 2011, it’s a pretty popular book blog and I’m so proud to be a part of it!
1000 Awesome Things
Sometimes you just need a pick-me-up and a reminder that the world isn’t an awful place. Whenever I’m feeling like that, I turn to 1000 Awesome Things. This blog is simply what it says it is… a list of completely awesome things. Launched in 2008, 1000 Awesome Things hit the 1000 mark in 2012 and is still (thankfully going). Some of my favourite awesome things include: “Bakery Air” and “When the thing you were going to buy is already on sale.” Genius.
The Jiggly Bits
I’ve probably mentioned The Jiggly Bits blog by Teeny Bikini before but I’m going to again. I don’t care! I love it! The posts aren’t regular so when I get a notification of a new one I do a little wiggle in my seat and settle in for another rambling, random tale of absolute weirdness. Teeny Bikini writes the way I think and the way could never dare to, my grandparents read this blog, after all!
I love this woman. Seriously. I admire her body bravery and how much she loves herself, and her acceptance of her ‘bad days’ where she doesn’t love herself as much as she should. Brittany is a strong personality and I’d kill to have her level of confidence–just take her Muse Project post as a perfect example. How awesome is she, right?!
Lucy Robinson’s Blog
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Lucy’s books, but her blog is just as ace. Her tone is friendly and hilarious, and she’s currently writing daily posts called “Wot I Loved Today.” They’re a great dose of positivity and a reminder that each day, miraculous, hilarious and brilliant things happen to us, whether we realise it or not.
Small Dog Syndrome
I just started following C’s blog a few days ago and I’m totally smitten. I can’t put a peg or genre on her blog because there’s a bit of everything going on. A fellow Londoner (hi!!) she writes a lot about the city, posts interesting photos around town and muses about hipsters in Shoreditch. I totally want to blog stalk her and start reading from the very beginning.
So, lovelies, who are you following that you think I should check out? I’m always on the hunt for more fantastic blogs–throw me a bone in the comments!
