There’ve been some truly wonderful blogs linked in my sidebar this month. And once again, it’s been quite the distraction! I’ve often found myself whiling away an hour or two catching up on all these talented ladies’ most recent posts, and quite neglecting my own work! Some are lifestyle blogs, others centre around food and recipes, and some focus on personal style. There really is a blog for everyone! So have a little click through to each of them in turn, and don’t forget to follow along with your favourites via Bloglovin’! Enjoy! :)
World of Wynne
Hanna’s blog is one that was introduced to me a good many months ago now, and I’ve been a loyal reader ever since. I love the way Hannah writes her posts- they’re always so serene and unassuming, and make you feel as though you’ve escaped into her personal journal. She shares recipes for sweet treats, dreamy photos, and snapshots of her beautiful little family. It’s the sort of blog you could lose yourself in, and I wholeheartedly recommend you do!
Favourite post of the past month? A Garden Stroll (because Hanna’s photos have the most incredible quality about them, I just can’t get enough!)
Oh, I just adore Lisette Loves! I stumbled upon her blog (and then across her YouTube channel too!) about a year ago, and I’ll tell you, it’s impossible not to be drawn in by Lisette’s personality! It comes shining right through everything she does! Lisette Loves is full of (you guessed it!) the things Lisette loves the most, and features wonderfully engaging lifestyle posts, outfit photos, recipes, and my favourite of favourite ‘Thankful Thursday’ posts which are dedicated to thoughtfulness and gratitude. Truly a wonderful read.
Favourite post of the past month? Almond glazed cinnabuns (because it’s a post chock full of cinnamon buns- it just couldn’t be any more perfect if it tried!)
The Peppermint Pencil
Have you fallen in love with Anya’s blog yet? She’s just such a talented, wonderful lady! Not only can she take a killer photo and illustrate the most beautiful pieces, but now she’s even risen to the (amazingly difficult!) challenge of eliminating sugar from her diet! Anya’s posts are always so beautifully put together- from the gorgeous photos in her recipe posts, to her candid ‘quitting sugar’ updates. I just can’t recommend you follow along with The Peppermint Pencil highly enough!
Favourite post of the past month? 10 tips for overcoming creative block. (because anyone who has ever taken on a creative role needs to read this post!)
The What Now Blog
Both Louise and her wonderful blog are so inspiring. The What Now Blog is full of thoughtful, beautifully written posts about staying motivated, career growth and progression, self-improvement, and the pursuit of happiness. Just recently Louise’s posts have rely struck a chord with me and made me think more carefully about decisions I make in my own life, and I think there’s no greater mark of a good blog! It’s one I recommend adding to your reading list right away, and that you settle down to read it when you find yourself in need of a little inspiration and an ‘online pep-talk’! :)
Favourite post of the past month? Work Life Balance- Why Should We Care? (because it’s just the most brilliant, thought-provoking read)
I had the pleasure of meeting Ala in person this month, and it’s only gone and made me enjoy reading This Particular even more than I did already! There’s just something about Ala’s blog- I think it’s that her writing truly reflects her lovely ‘real-life’ personality! Ala’s posts range from recipes (right now she’s doing a GBBO cookalong, girl after my own heart!) to happy catch up posts, London restaurant reviews, and the results of her experiments with film photography. If you’re a fan of a charming lifestyle blogs, then This Particular is one for you!
Favourite post of the past month? Street Feast | Model Market Lewisham (because it’s food porn at its absolute finest, and that’s a fact)
The Awkward Blog
Angela is another blogger I was lucky enough to meet in person in August, after so many months of talking online! Her blog became a firm favourite of mine from the very first time I read it, and Angela is just as delightful in person as she is on her blog! The Awkward Blog is my very favourite kind of lifestyle blog- full of gorgeous photos from Angela’s adventures (she just got engaged AND got kittens, adventures for days!) fun recipes, restaurant reviews, and snippets from her life in London! I just adore it- and am no less than 100% certain that you’ll love it too!
Favourite post of the past month? Kittens! (because KITTENS! They are the sweetest!)
It’s been such a pleasure to catch up with Sara’s blog, after she advertised here a good few months back! Thursday Afternoons is the most dreamy blog, with just about the prettiest and most feminine blog design you ever did see! In the past month Sara’s been sharing the most gorgeous posts all about her time spent exploring Croatia, and her photos are just divine! She’ll make you want to jet straight on over there, I promise you! It’s been so wonderful to catch up with Thursday Afternoons again- it’s a blog I know you’re going to just love!
Favourite post of the past month? Croatian Holiday: Split & Trogir (because Sara captures the spirit of Croatia so beautifully, you feel like you’re right there with her)
The Noble Foodie
I’ve just loved getting to know Bridget online in August! She’s such an inspiring blogger, baker, and woman in general! She began writing her blog as a way of exploring and sharing her wholesome recipes (all gluten and dairy-free) as a way of nourishing her body after bout after bout of ill health. It’s incredible to read her story of how cooking and eating wholesome food has changed her life! Bridget’s recipes are always accessible, healthy, and delicious-looking, and I for one am excited to give her gluten-free soda bread recipe a go!
Favourite post of the past month? Soda Bread Rolls (because I’m in awe of Bridget’s ability to adapt just about any recipe and make it gluten and dairy free!)
Jaclyn is another blogger who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in real life- we worked together on the What I See project a few months back! I didn’t know then that she wrote a blog of her own as well as being a social media and communications whizz! Bumpkin Betty has quickly become a favourite daily read of mine. Jaclyn’s posts are always so beautifully put together- with stunning photos, beautifully collated layouts, and the kind of charming writing that makes you feel like you’re catching up with a friend! Not to mention, her new design is pretty killer too…
Favourite post of the past month? The Weekend in Pictures (because Jaclyn’s photos of Bath are just too perfect!)
Cocktails and Caroline
Oh, it’s never a dull day when I get to sit down and catch up with Caroline and her wonderful blog! She always has the most fun, interesting, engaging posts on her site- from reviews of food and drink hotspots, to the very best places to travel! Caroline’s travel posts are my especial favourite- she always sells me on wherever in the world she’s visited most recently, so the point where I suggest it to Jason as a possible honeymoon spot! You must go and check out her photos from Camogli in Italy- they’re just stunning!
Favourite post of the past month? A Road Trip to Italy- Camogli (because Caroline’s photos are to die for- you could just dive into that sea!)
I met Emily well over a year ago now (at a party in London where I didn’t know a soul, and was so glad to see a familiar face!), and have followered her blog for such a long time! It’s always such a lovely read- full of style posts, product + restaurant reviews, how-tos, and even more besides! It’s the sort of blog you’ll stop in on to just read a post or two, and find yourself reading months into the back catalogue half an hour later. And if that’s not the mark of a good blog, I don’t know what is!
Favourite post of the past month? Outfit: Denim Dungaree Dress (because you know I’m a sucker for anything dungaree-related!)
Sunny Sweet Pea
It’s always such a pleasure to have Jenny’s blog linked in my sidebar, especially since Sunny Sweet Pea has recently undergone a major facelift making it (if possible!) even prettier than it was before! Jenny’s blog is always such a lovely one to escape in to- her world seems to be such a beautiful one! It’s never a bad day when you click through to a blog and are met with a pup as beautiful as sweet Pip, and Jenny’s recipes, home interior posts, and lifestyle posts are not to be missed. Just such a happy read!
Favourite post of the past month? Houghton Mill (because Jenny is the reigning Queen of Quintessentially English posts!)
I stumbled across Owl Girl one day after clicking through from a comment Candy had left on my blog, and am so glad I did! Owl Girl is such a bright, happy online ‘world’, full of crafting and photos of the beautiful things Candy’s wears, how-to posts, and stories from Candy’s family and recent goings-on. I just love it! Owl Girl is unique and individual in its styling, and I’ve just been loving getting to know both it and Candy over the past few weeks.
Favourite post of the past month? A jolly jaunt to Portobello Road (because Candy’s entire outfit is to die for!)
Rhyme & Ribbons
It seriously has been so great to get to know Amanda’s blog this month! And so much fun too, because Amanda is 100% hilarious! Her posts are always so much fun to read, and her blog itself seems to be a real labour of love which is something I always find so engaging. Amanda is another blogger engaged in a GBBO cookalong (you must read her first GBBO post, there’s even fancy dress involved!) and if you’re a fan of the show itself, you’re going to love Amanda’s posts! You must go and follow along right away! :)
Favourite post of the past month? The Not So British Bake Off: Week 3 (Breads) (because wigs are involved. WIGS. )
