Sharing The Blog Love This March
It's that time of the month again where I share ten of my favourite blog posts from the month that has passed and here they are today;
Nobody's Child - Earlier in the month I was invited along to a really exciting event which unfortunately due to a bit of a terrible IBS flare up, I had to miss. The event was the Nobody's Child Glasgow blogger event and whilst I was certainly upset to have missed the night, thanks to Charlotte's post I was able to catch up with what I'd sadly missed. The clothes look so pretty and after having a quick perusal of their website I'll definitely be keeping Nobody's Child in mind when it comes to adding new pieces to my wardrobe for Spring/Summer this year. And how fabulous do the doughnuts courtesy of Tantrum Doughnuts look?
Goodbye Kitson - Whilst I couldn't care less about the Kardashians or any of the 'big' reality shows that are on at the moment, in my early teens I was obsessed with many of the US reality shows that had made their way over to us here in the UK. The Simple Life and Laguna Beach were the main culprits so this post by Rebecca conjured up so many teenage memories for me. Anyone who kept up with the likes of Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan at that time, would most likely remember Kitson. I always dreamed of visiting the store one day and I did pay a visit to the little store in the Orlando International Airport a few years ago but it just wasn't the same as the Kitson I had longed to visit when I was twelve years old. It's sad to hear that it's gone for good but maybe it's a good thing that Juicy Couture velour tracksuits, Von Dutch trucker caps and Ed Hardy t-shirts are no longer in fashion. Let's just pray that early 2000's fashion doesn't make a revival any time soon.
A Weekend In Paris - Part One - I discovered Amy's brilliant blog this month after she left me a lovely comment on my Chocolate With None Of The Calories This Easter post. Paris is somewhere I've always wanted to visit so to this post and part two made for fantastic reading. They've both made me incredibly hungry for macaroons, crepes and what looks like such a scrumptious cake. And I would say Amy, write about whatever you want to on your blog. I completely understand feeling like you have to have a particular niche or topic when it comes to blogging but once you start writing about what you love and want to share, it just clicks or at least it did so for me.
A Day In The Life Of A Beauty Blogger - Georgie's comical take on the 'day in the life' of a beauty blogger made for a great read this month. So many of the daily moments ring true with myself and probably so many others and I definitely understand the constant struggles of resisting temptation in Boots, endlessly searching for new blog templates and waking up at 4am with a great idea for the blog that can't wait until morning.
Paperchase Blogger Event - As someone who could spend hours wandering around Paperchase, this basically sounds like a dream event to me. I always find it really interesting to read blog posts on blog events and seeing all the great Paperchase pieces photographed so beautifully certainly made the stationery/homeware obsessive in me very happy. Why oh why don't we have events like that up here in Glasgow? That's a not so subtle hint to the Paperchase press team. Hehe.
Culottes & Leather - Every Spring/Summer when the shops bring out their latest releases one piece that always catches my eye has to be culottes. But for some reason or another I never pluck up the courage to take a pair, or several, in with me to the changing rooms to see how they look on me and my body. To say that Pam has nailed the way in which she's styled and wears her culottes would be a bit of an understatement. She looks so fantastic and I love the fact that she's paired them with leather and pops of red. And how amazing are her sunglasses?
A Brandy Melville Haul - Brandy Melville is a brand that so many rave about and yet I've never had the pleasure of checking out any of their pieces in person. But after reading Charlotte's post and seeing the pieces that she picked up it's certainly made me want to place an order sooner rather than later.
29 Random Things Every Girl Thinks When They Visit New York - Time for the obligatory New York blog feature in this month's Sharing The Love Post. It always thrills me when a blogger I follow, particularly when it comes to Instagram, starts posting from New York. Expect me to be glued to their Instagram feed like an obsessed fan for the duration of their trip. Well that's exactly what happened when Kat visited this month. Despite posting about her favourite food, what she bought and where she visited whilst she was in NYC, this post definitely made me smile and chuckle the most.
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?
