How has your week been? I’ve been doing my internship at Student and Graduate Publishing, applying to jobs, and hitting the gym. On Monday I went to my third blogger event – Gremlins 2 was being shown at the London Warner Brother’s Studio so I went along as I hadn’t seen the film before. It was very silly, but Gizmo is the cutest! I also went to see Miranda Hart perform at the London Palladium last night. Miranda is so so so hilarious, and she was joined by Mel Giedroyc
from the Great British Bake Off. Miranda’s dog, who is so so so adorable, also made an appearance! I did try to take a photo but I was sitting at a bit of a weird angle so it didn’t really come out as well as I’d expected! So here’s a pic of Miranda and her dog Peggy taken from The Times
On to today’s post…
A while ago I did a post dedicated to 6 blogs I love. Well, since I’ve been reading many other blogs recently, I thought I’d add some more to the list.
For me, reading blogs is one of the best things about being a blogger. It’s a great way of connecting with likeminded people, and finding out about new things, whether that’s a restaurant, book, TV show, or travel destination. During my two and a half (ish) years of (officially) blogging, I have discovered hundreds of blogs, and certain ones stand out more than the rest. I have written about these below, so you can check them out if you wish.
I first discovered Kayleigh’s lovely blog about a year ago, and it’s quickly become one of my favourites. Kayleigh’s blog is so relatable and well-thought-out. It’s clear that she puts a lot of effort into creating every post. I love Kayleigh’s post about The Alchemist
, a cocktail bar in Leeds. Don’t the cocktails look amazing?! I definitely need to stop by it if I’m ever in Leeds. If you’re thinking about joining Tinder but unsure whether it’ll work or not, why not check out Kayleigh’s success story
Rhianna is a lifestyle blogger from Leeds. She blogs about a whole range of things, including food, beauty and fashion. Rhianna describes her blog as “a place where you [can] come and feel like you’re talking to a friend.” I can definitely agree with that. Check out Rhianna’s post about the 7 ways we are all like Bridget Jones
is one of the best blogs to turn to if you’re looking for travel inspiration. Lucy lived in Australia for a while and has recently come back from a trip around Europe (and she’s now back in Australia for another year or so!). She visited Santorini
, Amsterdam and Slovenia (which, by the way, looks absolutely stunning), to name just a few. Lucy seems like a genuinely nice person and this shows through her posts.
I fell in love with Jordan’s blog the moment I set eyes on it. I adore her outfit posts, particularly her Fields of Purple and The Pastel Parisian ones. She always seems to look so amazing, no matter what she’s wearing! The pictures on this blog are so clear and colourful – Jordan must spend ages editing them. If you love afternoon tea, it’s worth checking out Jordan’s The Tea Files.
Another blogger I love is Imii, a.k.a. Nettle and Blackberry. I’ve only started reading her blog the last few weeks but I enjoy her restaurant reviews (I need to visit Cutter and Squidge!) and posts about Paris – I’m so jealous that she got to live there for 10 months! If you love Nettle and Blackberry as much as I do, you should check out Imii’s Instagram.
