Blogs I’ve loved reading in 2017
Going back to when I first started blogging (like 4 years ago – eek!), we did ALL of the blogger love posts. Seriously, I used to write about blogger faves and instagram faves all the time, and often read them. Then for some reason, they just fell out of style. WELL I’M BRINGING THEM BACK. It’s time to share some great reads with you.
You see, I figure if you’re reading this blog, well then, YOU LIKE BLOGS. So you should check out some of the ones which I’ve been loving reading in 2017!
Rhyme and Ribbons
I think Amandas blog Rhyme and Ribbons will be on this list every single year. She produces such great, consistent content! She’s an American now living in York and documenting everything about her slow and lovely life. From seasonal eating, great travel tips or just a post full of snaps of her sausage dog Harold, I basically want to read them all.
Add her to your reading list RIGHT NOW. Oh and she has an AMAZING instagram which gives me all the inspo, so a great one to check out too!
Becky’s blog was a new one for me this year, found through the joy of twitter and I’m so glad I found it! It’s full of colour and creativity. I love her take on interiors and how every post gives me a good idea. You don’t get the standard lists of the 5 things you do to chill out, you get interesting ideas which I actually end up wanting to do! Her blog is full of paint, lists and everything I love from a lifestyle blog.
As the Sparrow Flies
I basically love everything Sam produces! I loved her podcast which sadly ended last year BUT I am now obsessed with her new travel blog As the Sparrow Flies, and you know GOOD NEWS for all of us is that she launched her new podcast called The Travelust podcast which I loooove. If you need any kind of travel inspo and some dreamy photos, then jump over there. I have all the travel plans now based on her super informative posts!
Another blog which was new to me this year, Jaye blogs all about her life down on the South Coast. She’s one of the only blogs I read for beauty content as I find all of her posts so close to mine in style. But I love her personal posts the best – she’s been through a tough year and it’s inspirational to see how she’s come out of it! I can’t wait to keep reading in 2018.
The Cardiff Cwtch
Nias blog, The Cardiff Cwtch, is one of my total faves because it’s just a PROPER GOOD LIFESTYLE BLOG. I mean really, I miss reading posts about what you did on the weekend, and some nice food you cooked. Her blog is personal and engaging and just reminds me of the things I sometimes miss about my blog, just sharing things you love and enjoy! I love seeing her shots of Wales and she has the cutest doggo. Get adding her to your reading lists!
Cate in the Kitchen
I’ve loved Cate’s blog, Cate in the Kitchen, for awhile, but what I’ve been obsessed with this year, is her PODCAST! Yes, it’s totally fantastic. I’ve been wanting a food based podcast for ages (cause you know, I love food) and this one is perfect. Each episode features an interview with someone about food and all the joys surrounding it. Cate’s interviewing is perfect and it basically feels like a warm and cozy chat with some friends.
On top of that, her blog is great – all the food I want to make and she does such a great job at really bringing her voice and personality to her writing.
I mean, can I write a list and not mention Jamies blog, Angloyankophile? I think not! Not only does she have the most inspirational instagram (if I can ever get one flatlay to look that good then I’ll be very lucky!) but she has such a great blog too. I love her personal style of writing, you really get a feel for the place and the emotions going on. She regularly makes me have ALL the travel lust, and I basically dream about her newly renovated bathrooms. They are seriously dreamy.
Middle of Adventure
Lauras blog, Middle of Adventure, basically makes me feel like I need to get out of my corner of London! She does so much London exploring and gives me all the inspo. From exploring different corners, to reviewing loads of yummy food – I’ve got so many good ideas from here. Not to mention, her photos are DREAMY. Plus, I think she’s the only person I know who loves a blog commenting sesh as much as I do <333
I honestly can’t write about all the blogs I love and read regularly, but if you need even more recommends then be sure to try out: Little Miss Katy, Emma Inks, I’m Being Erica, Charlie Distracted, Mini Adventures, Runaway Kiwi, Adventures of a London Kiwi, Kelly Prince Wright, Sophie Cliff, Paper planes and Caramel Waffles, Cake + Whisky, Blooming El and Girl in Awe just to name a few!
