My bloggers of the year

I follow nearly 200 blogs on Bloglovin, from A Beautiful Chaos to Zen Scribbles. I had a semi-recent cull and unfollowed old URLs or those who hadn't posted for six months and the total still stands at 186. As I scroll through the list of blogs I follow, maybe 20 or so stand out as… Continue reading My bloggers of the year

Wild, Jack Whitehall and birthday plans #LittleLoves

I've felt really busy this week, with just three working weeks remaining until Christmas and trying to get ahead of myself with some scheduled posts so I can take a blog break over my birthday weekend. I might even have a mini digital detox. But then how will people know what I've done if it's… Continue reading Wild, Jack Whitehall and birthday plans #LittleLoves

As much as I love blogging, I love reading blogs too. One minute you can be wanderlusting over new places to add to your travel bucket list and the next you can be weeping over someone's personal account of a heart-breaking experience. From book hauls to recipes and home tours to pregnancy updates, my Bloglovin'… Continue reading Saturday Share #120

As much as I consider myself a lifestyle blogger this little blog seems to become more and more stationery and books obsessed. Not that I'm complaining.

This week I've been applauding my fave blogger, adding more books to my TBR and pondering baby names. But not for the reason you might think. Ok, first things first. Can we take a minute to applaud that Hannah Gale Blogosophere cover? I'm so freaking excited for the next issue. How did I not know… Continue reading Saturday Share #110

I feel like every time I open Twitter theses days there seems to be more bad blood in the blogosphere, so this weekly update feels more necessary than ever. I love championing my favourite bloggers and sharing posts that have helped or inspired me. First off, 'scuse the little self-promo. I contributed to a fun… Continue reading Saturday Share #106

This week I've LOLed at awesome posts on Cornish life and politics, drooled over mug cakes and swooned over travel photo diaries. Gotta love the blogosphere! I love reading book reviews from people who have just read one of my favourite books for the first time. Anastasia is no longer a Jane Austen virgin! I've… Continue reading Saturday Share #84

Man, it's been a great week in the blogosphere! So many people have given me food for thought and kept me entertained, with Comic Con trailers, recipes to try, must-use Instagram hashtags and even a discussion on contraception. Grab yourself a nice chilled drink (just me? So hot!!!) and enjoy. Lifestyle Alice wants us to… Continue reading Saturday Share #59

I've got you covered with loads of new recipes, as well as tips for those wanting to start a bullet journal and a whole… Continue reading Follow Friday #50
