do you know, i’m writing this post exactly three months to the day since i began my little blog? :) hooray for reaching little milestones! i’ve decided to write a post summing up all of the loveliness and inspiration and beauty that i’ve stumbled across within the blog world over the past three months (or ‘quarter’ as proper business folk like to call it), and hope that this will be the beginning of a lovely ‘quarterly’ blog series! here goes…:)
in the past three months…
♥ i made a lovely lovely blog friend called charlotte, whose blog ‘charlotte’s web’ was the first british blog i ever read! i must confess that before i found charlotte’s blog, i genuinely thought that there were no british bloggers at all! how naive is that!? charlotte’s ‘conversation’ style posts are laugh out loud funny, and i’m so happy to have found another ‘absurdly obsessed with cats’ kindred spirit.
♥ ‘a beautiful mess’ made its way into my list of daily reads. elsie and emma’s creativity is astounding, and their photography tips are just so incredible for anyone (like me!) beginning to dip their toe into the big scary world of lenses, aperture, and shutter speeds!
♥ i stumbled across olivia’s beautiful blog ‘what olivia did’ in june, and it fast became my all-time favourite fashion blog :) liv’s dreamy photos of paris made me want to jump straight on the eurostar, and her chic ensembles are just super inspirational. also, she’s friends with cherry healey. pretty awesome, right?
♥ i found marvellous beauty blogs like zoella, sprinkle of glitter, and what i heart today! my love for beauty products doubled (yay!) and my bank balance subsequently halved (boo!).
♥ my own little blog has grown and changed such a lot in the past quarter, and (although i hate to get all x-factor and talk of ‘journeys’ and ‘growing so much’) i really am enjoying developing my ‘blogging voice’ :) this little letter i wrote to jason at the beginning of summer has been by far the most viewed and searched-for post on cider with rosie, and since it’s also my own personal favourite post that makes me a happy little soul.
here’s to the next quarter!
