It's that time again where I share ten of my favourite blog posts from the month that has passed and here they are today. Look out for a couple of festive related ones too. I'm already looking forward to the excitement that is Blogmas and reading lots of Christmassy posts next month. Who's attempting Blogmas this year? I've just started planning out each of my 24 posts and I can't wait to start writing them but as someone who normally only posts three times a week I have no idea how I will get on but let's see how it goes.
5 Killer Things To Buy In November - It's rare to see a 'favourites' post pop up where I think 'okay so I'm going to need to pick up every single product in this' but that's exactly what happened with this post. Jaye's picks are absolutely fantastic and they are products that I've been lusting after for some time now. I really need to finally get around to treating myself to some of them soon, particularly the gorgeous Charlotte Tilburry berry shade and what sounds like the dreamy Japanese Camellia Cream from The Body Shop.
Dear Non-Blogger; Why Being A Blogger Isn't Always As It Seems... - Before starting Ellis Tuesday I myself was obsessed with reading blogs and seeing what my favourite bloggers got up to on Instagram and Twitter. It still hasn't quite sunk in that people now do that when it comes to me and my blog. Hayley's post on what blogging can really entail (sitting in our pyjama's with our hair in a top knot most days, keeping some Instagram-worthy shots ready for days like that and attempting to take several outfit post photos in one day) is so relatable both as a blogger and a non-blogger and definitely worth a read if you're a fan of blogging.
Festive Fairisles - Paula's blog is one that I only just discovered this month and boy am I glad that I did. I've spent most of the past week or so catching up with some of her best posts as well as her latest ones and this outfit one is just fantastic. Anyone who can make fairisle print look chic and fashionable is definitely one to watch in my opinion.
Tiger Christmas - Tiger is one of my favourite shops to pop into for a good browse and I normally always leave with some adorable little item (or several). However, saying that, I actually haven't made a trip to my local Tiger store since they got their Christmas range in and that's where Charlotte's post certainly came in handy. I'm only a little bit jealous (jealous Ellis) that she was given the fabulous task of doing a Christmas shopping spree, I promise. Hehe.
Jo Malone London Advent Calendar - Every year bigger and better beauty advent calendars hit the market and every year I opt for one that's in or around £30 but that doesn't mean that I can't live vicariously through other bloggers choices. Danielle picked up one of the best beauty advent calendars I've ever seen this year; the Jo Malone London Advent Calendar. Now how stunning does it look? I can't wait to see what's behind each door.
London: Fashion Markets - Kirsten's London posts have made for some fantastic reading and her last in the series is dedicated to all things fashion with a sprinkling of food thrown in for good measure. To see the Liberty in Fashion exhibition without physically having to leave the house is why I love reading blogs as much as I do. You never know what you're going to see next and it's great to experience things through someone else's perspective too.
So what blogs and blog posts have you really enjoyed reading this month? Are there any blogs that you've discovered recently that you would like to share? And what blog posts do you have planned for the upcoming month/months? Also, does anyone have any top Blogmas tips for someone like myself who's never attempted it before?
