Once again, it’s been so lovely putting together this little round up of all the blogs and sites that’ve been hanging out in my sidebar this month. Getting to find so many amazing blogs and taking the time to recognise the best about each and every one of them is always such a treat. It’s one of my favourite blog-related things I do each month, writing this little role call! There are such a wonderful blogs and sites linked below- some that’re old favourite reads of mine, and some that I’ve spent the past few weeks getting to know. And I’m so happy to be introducing them to you!
Rhianna is a total ray of sunshine. Her blog was new to me this month, and I’ve had the best time reading through her lovely posts, and getting to know her a little better! Robowecop (best blog name EVER for a blog, right?!) is a lifestyle blog, featuring posts about beauty, little wish lists, recipes, and an incredible series called Let’s Talk in which Rhianna talks candidly about anxiety and other mental health issues. I just love the way in which Rhianna writes her posts- they’re so warm and inviting, and reading them just feels like catching up with a friend. Every post she shares is so lovely and well put-together, and I’m sure I’ll be following along with Robowecop for a long time to come!

I’ve so enjoyed reading Ashleigh’s blog this month! Quintessentially Me is a luxury lifestyle blog, and such a lovely one to follow along with. It’s full of recommendations of where’s best to eat in London (I am SO going to No .11 Pimlico Road based on Ashleigh’s review!), beautiful lifestyle posts, and even the occasional recipe or two as well. Ashleigh’s writing is so lovely to read, and I find myself smiling through each of her posts. It’s exactly the sort of lifestyle blog I love the most- charming, unassuming, and so brimming with happiness you’ll find yourself smitten by the time you’d scrolled to the end of the very first page.
Favourite post of the past month? No. 11 Pimlico Road.
Angie’s blog is escapism at its absolute finest! There’s nothing I don’t love about reading Silverspoon London- beautiful photos? Check! Dreamy, wanderlust-inducing settings? Check! Fun, engaging writing? Check check check! On her blog, Angie shares tales from her adventures, and her adventures always seem to be the most fun! This month she’s been travelling around South Africa, stayed in the rooftop hotel of my dreams, eaten an eight course ‘surprise’ tasting menu, and tested out the new Heddon Street Kitchen restaurant! I find myself getting totally lost in Angie’s posts, and can’t recommend her lovely blog highly enough!
Favourite post of the past month? A Menu of Surprises at The Tasting Room.
Let Us Wanderlust
From one wanderlust-inducing blog, to another! Carly’s blog too centres on travel, and does so in such a beautiful way. This month, Carly jetted off to Japan, and has been sharing the most gorgeous photographs along the way. The post about the Fushimi Inari Shrine at Kyoto was especially stunning- Carly writes so very passionately about the experiences she has whilst travelling, it’s hard not to want to head to the nearest airport! Alongside writing about her adventures, Carly shares lovely recipes, outfit photos to die for, and posts from her native Australia. I just love reading Let Us Wanderlust, and know you’re going to fall hard for it too!
Favourite post of the past month? Getting lost at Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto Japan.
Loved by Laura
I’m so glad to have had chance to get to know Laura’s lovely blog over the past few weeks. It’s just the sweetest read! Loved by Laura is, as you might’ve guessed, a blog that features all the things Laura loves most! This month, Laura’s shared posts about what she’s been watching on TV (Fortitude all the way!), convinced me I really need to read The Girl on the Train next (it sounds amazing!) and also want to go to a hula hooping class, and made a lemon and lime drizzle cake that looks so divine I practically licked my laptop screen. There’s not a single post been shared on Loved by Laura this month I’ve not loved- one to add to your reading list right away!
Favourite post of the past month? Core Blimey! Getting Hulafit.
Brooke Meagan Jones
There are so many things to love about Brooke’s blog. Her beautiful dog. Her sense of humour. The photos of stunning Nova Scotia that she shares so frequently. I’m just in love with it all! Brooke and her boyfriend uprooted their lives and moved to Nova Scotia at the end of 2013, and explains that her blog is a way of documenting her way through the everyday with her ‘two favourite senses: humour and adventure’! I’m so in love with that philosophy, I feel like I want to have it tattooed onto the back of my hand! Brooke’s photos of the Nova Scotia scenery are enough to make me want to add it to the dream trip to Canada I’m planning for next winter, and each of her posts is as wonderful to read as the last. I just love it.

Next in the role call is Cheeky Boo- not a blog, but a shop! And an adorable shop at that! Cheeky Boo is full of whimsical design in all forms- from jewellery, to greetings cards, to wall hangings, to notebooks and stationery! I love the range of products the shop carries, and have fallen clean in love with the all the beautiful bird-print homewares. I think it’s so important to support small, independent boutiques like Cheeky Boo, and with the incredible range of illustrated greetings cards they carry, I can tell you they’ll be having my custom for a while to come! Oh, and since these things are important, the shop itself is such an easy one to navigate, with clear, bright photos and a super-neat layout. Bookmark on the double!
Favourite item? Vintage map print notebook.
It was such a pleasure to introduce Sam Docker here earlier on in April, and to have so many people comment on his incredible photography. Sam is a seriously talented photographer- so talented in fact that he’s to be our wedding photographer in July! It’s been such a pleasure getting to know him over the past few months since we first ‘met’ online- not only is Sam’s work amazing, but he is THE person to talk to about lenses, and editing software, and cameras, and just about everything else you could want to ask a pro photographer! Everything he shoots, from his incredible brand and commercial work to his engagement shoots and bridal work, has the most incredible clarity and light quality, and I just can’t wait to see what he shoots for us in July!

Miranda’s blog is oh such a lovely one! It’s a lifestyle blog (or rather, a lifestyle notebook!), containing everything from beautiful recipes, posts about Miranda’s favourite things and current inspirations, photos and stories from her adventures, and list of the things she’s most grateful for each week. And you all know how much I love a list of thankfulness! It’s Miranda’s recipes I love the most. Her food photos are always so bright and beautifully styled, and my GOODNESS do they make me hungry?! You must check out her recipe for sea bass linked below- it’s jumped right to the top of my ‘to make’ list!
Favourite post of the past month? Sea Bass with Mustard and Capers
Little Miss Katy
You know, Katy is easily one of my favourite people to interact with online. She’s just a total delight- everything from her tweets, to the comments she writes, to her darling blog itself is sunny and happy and lovely! Via Little Miss Katy, Katy shares posts about her life in London, and covers everything from personal style and dining out experiences to blogger events and nights at the theatre! There really is something to suit everyone, but to be honest, I just love Katy’s whole blog! It really seems to come from the heart, and I find that’s the trait that draws me back to a blog time and time again. I can’t recommend you start following along with Little Miss Katy highly enough!
Favourite post of the past month? Katy’s Chorizo Chachouka
