Newsletters seem to be a really big thing in the blogging/writing world at the mo and I for one, am all over it. It is a brilliant way of keeping up to date with bloggers who produce them as they come straight to your email (handy!) and share lots of brilliant tips & tricks & ASOS buys you absolutely need. I’ve recently started subscribing to any thrown my way but I thought I would share five of my favourites that you all must go and subscribe to, like immediately.
After my first instalment of this post back in April, I realised that I still needed to share so many more amazing bloggers. When I compiled my list, I didn’t realise how many insanely good blogs I read and I was left with so many who I didn’t manage to write about first time. So voila, here we have the take two version. I spend a lot of time on the internet reading blogs and these 8 ladies cover amazing variations of content: from lifestyle to books to travel to spirituality.
If you think your “to read” list is lacking a little bit, I fully recommend giving these bloggers lot a whirl. I don’t read things that I can’t be bothered with but I find myself continuously checking these ladies blogs for new posts, I’m bordering on obsessive tbh.
I was having a scroll down Instagram the other day and I realised I was following a lot of bloggers who are really fucking good. People whose blogs (and instagram feeds) I covet a lot. People whose advice on the internet I listen to, who have realistic (and fantastic) fashion and beauty advice, who share homeware buys and travel adventures I realistically could do myself (unfortunately this gal ain’t got no budget for The Maldives) and whose writing I genuinely enjoy reading. They could be chatting about their favourite type of cereal and I would still take note.
Y’know, those gals. As finding blogs can be a teeny bit tricky sometimes because if like me, you can’t always be bothered with Bloglovin. I find the Facebook groups I’m a member of to do with blogging are ace for finding new bloggers but as you often have to have a blog to be a part of these, it ain’t the best for everyone.
Holy smokes September where did you come from?
I can’t quite believe that summer is actually over. I move back to Glasgow for second year on Thursday and I just feel as if the summer has flown by. I’m writing this post whilst binge-watching NCIS on 5USA so I might regain some sort of a social life hopefully when I move back to the city! I do this ritual almost everyday after work which is a bit sad but work this summer has just been so so so hectic so it’s kind of the only thing I do to totally chill.
But this summer has been awesome. And it’s been a bit different to the other seventeen summers I’ve seen in my years. It’s been a summer of change, growing up, being more confident and feeling good and in a small way, it’s been a summer of blogging.
So I know it’s supposed to be December at the end of the year when you reflect on everything etc etc (did you see how many TV shows there about the “best bits”?!) but because I didn’t start blogging again until the 1st, I’m sliding this post in now.
I’ve been reading blogs since abut the second half of 2014 but I’ve been reading them non-stop throughout all of 2015. Sometimes I can find magazines a little boring, samey-samey and just too polished for my liking so blogs in my opinion have filled that sassy little gap. I’m an avid user of Bloglovin (and you should all download it too if blogs are your thing) and I subscribe to a few of my favourite bloggers so I’m up-to-date on their posts. So here’s my top five gals of 2015.
