Sharing The Blog Love This February



It's that time of the month again where I share some of my favourite blog posts from the month that has passed and here they are today;

10 Ways To Prep For Your First Blogger Event - I've had the absolute pleasure of attending my fair share of blogger and press events and Beki's ten tips for prepping for your first one really do ring true, even if I still don't have blogging business cards (that's something I must look into at some point). I've been really lucky to meet so many incredible bloggers thanks to the events that I've attended and I would always recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and heading to a blog event if and when you can.

Fashion Blogger Fails - Whilst I'd still say that beauty is the main focus here on Ellis Tuesday, I have been posting more outfit/fashion blogger style posts in the past couple of months and even have another one coming up this Sunday. And whilst I definitely wouldn't class myself as a fashion blogger by any means, I certainly understand each and every one of these 'fails' that Tasha has brilliantly outlined. I still haven't found the dream location for my outfit posts or bagged myself an expert photographer but it is fun trying to 'make it work' as Tim Gunn would say, especially in the ice cold weather that we've had recently. I mean I even took outfit posts in the snow last month!

Homesense #LoveFromFirstFind Event - I'm pretty sure that I've said this in a previous 'Sharing The Blog Love' post but why oh why have I not been to Homesense before? Well Laura's post, on what looks like a brilliant event, has me Googling 'where is the closest Homesense to me?' as we speak. I love the pieces that she managed to pick up, especially the mint wire basket and who doesn't love a good notebook or three in this case?

Creme De La Creme Egg - Whilst I'm not the biggest fan of traditional Easter eggs, both Creme and Mini Eggs are a whole different story. So to read Jordan's blog post about her trip to the Creme De La Creme Egg Cafe (yes that is a thing!!) made me incredibly happy, a little jealous and hungry for the chocolately goodness that comes from a Creme Egg. It basically looks like the best cafe ever (who wouldn't want to check out a chocolate themed cafe?)! I also really appreciated all of the egg based puns strewn throughout the blog post. Hehe.

Ellis Tuesday Giveaway Prizes - Last month I debuted the first of my monthly giveaways (February has went by so quickly that I might have missed the second of my monthly giveaways but I promise to rectify that at a later date) and the lovely Lucy won that particular giveaway. It's great to hear that she's been loving her prizes and how gorgeous is her photography as well?

My Travel Bucket-list - I'm a big fan of reading travel bucket-list type posts, especially as I've only ever travelled to two countries in my life (the US and Spain, I don't think I can count sitting in Reykjavik airport for a couple of hours as visiting Iceland to be honest) so I really enjoyed seeing what foreign lands Alice would like to visit. I'm definitely with her on all of her picks and it just makes me want to explore the world even further, whilst I still have the chance to.

NYC - And it wouldn't be a 'Sharing The Blog Love' post without at least one of my ten favourite blog posts from the month being dedicated to New York. Scrolling through Kate's fantastic photographs just makes me smile and I can't wait to see her NYC shopping haul when it's up either.

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?
