With the weather still requiring a minimum of six layers of clothing to keep you feeling somewhat toasty, I’m happily eking out one of the last Sundays of winter on my sofa paired with a delightful combination of baking, Netflix and blog reading. It’s cosy and quite frankly I don’t want to move until Monday. It’s been one of those weekends: relaxed, chilled, recharging. I thought it would be rude of me to sit here and not share with you my current reading list, so if you too are refusing to get out of your PJ’s today then here are five of my current blog favourites to snuggle up with and have a read of this weekend…
STYLE THE NATIVES. Charly is the ultimate wordsmith. She has a way with words that I can only dream of. She writes pieces that make me laugh till I wee a little, though I often find myself tearing up and reaching for a tissue when I get to some of her conclusions. It’s really beautiful and seeing that I’m a big believer in that you are what you read, I always head here when I want to get my lexicon juices flowing.
LOVE TAZA. This blog came up at one of our recent #BeautyChatLIVE events and I remembered that I used to read this ages ago when Naomi and her husband had one child, Eleanor. Now they have three (!!!) as it’s the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. A great NYC lifestyle blog that will make your ovaries explode. You have been warned.
DELICIOUSLY ELLA. Ok, so I think I managed four days without mentioning my current girl crush of the moment – Ella Woodward *pats self on back*. If you’ve yet to pick up her book, her blog is a great place to find a wealth of healthy eating inspiration, including recipes, store cupboard essentials and London eats. I religiously check it to see what tasty treat she’s been rustling up.
DESIGN SPONGE. I’ve been finding myself getting seriously into interiors blogs recently. To the point where I’m even finding myself ‘pinning’ – I know. Design Sponge is like a visual feast of ‘Through the Keyhole’ peeks into very beautiful homes, but I also love Gh0stparties interior design posts and find myself looking at French By Design too. Anymore recommendations for monochrome, Pinterest-worthy blogs? Hit me up.
LIPSTICK WITH SOME SUNSHINE. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned Tamira’s Instagram before because it’s one of the most dreamy feeds I follow, but her blog is equally worth the heart eyed emojis. With on-point photography, it’s like if a design blog had a baby with a beauty blog, it would look something like this amazing corner of the Internet.
