I love to follow other bloggers blogs. I quite often get lost scrolling through posts written by people I’ve found through search or Instagram profiles – it’s funny how you start to feel like you know people from their words and pictures in a little square!
Sometimes I read articles and wish I could write so eloquently (!) other times I read in total disagreement but still love that people have such opposing views on things, and sometimes I get blog inspiration to start typing again…
I thought I’d share some of the blogs that I enjoyed reading in the parenting and lifestyle space in 2020.
AMBER AT FOREVER AMBER
A relatively new find for me, but a very welcome one!
I’m not sure how I first discovered Amber’s blog but as soon as I started reading it, I was hooked. Amber covers a range of topics; beauty, parenting, travel and lifestyle all in her own unique ‘anxious’ way and I don’t only love the look of her site, but totally adore her writing style.
ALICE AT ALICE ANNE
Local blogger Alice who blogs over on Alice Anne has a great mix of beauty, cookery and parenting. Her food images are to die for and worth a peek at her blog, just to salivate over those… did someone say charcuterie platter?!
I enjoy reading Alice’s blog as living in Southampton, not far from me, I get to seek and find new places on her honest recommendations. I have discovered new restaurants that I didn’t know existed from reading about them on her page!
EMMA AT THE HALCYON YEARS
I’ve followed Emma for ages now, and we both took part in each others blog swap posts in the very early days. She’s so, so relatable and down to earth and her photography and fashion snaps are gorge. Emma’s also a mum of 3 under five; Ettie, Ollie and Dougie are just the sweetest little buttons.
Her interior design styles are very similar to ours, and we have a few of the same furniture/accessories in our house so I like to nip over to see what new bits she might be adding to her lovely family home as inspiration!
HARRIET AT TOBY & ROO
Struggling for meal ideas? Harriet over at Toby & Roo has you covered on her site. As well as weekly meal plans there’s all things parent and lifestyle to ogle over.
One minute you can be using her inspo to craft with the kids or read her recommended books, the next we’re thinking about relationships and dates. There’s something for everyone with Harriet!
ALISON AT NOT ANOTHER MUMMY BLOG
Another relatively recent find in 2020 was Alison’s blog. Her posts really related to me – and I knew she was definitely a keeper when I read her ‘10 places to eat avocado on toast in London‘ article… you can’t go far wrong with a wanky avo brunch can you?
As well as the best places to dine on avocado in the city, you’ll find fashion, travel and general style features as well as the opportunity to listen to her hobnobs with celebs over on her podcast!
HANNA AT LITTLE SNIPPETS
It’s not the first time Hanna has appeared on one of my ‘favourites’ lists, because I have always loved Hanna’s writing style, honesty and all round loveliness. I remember stumbling across her blog years and years ago and thought how well she wrote. I’m now one of her top instagram story viewers I’m sure of it!
Hanna writes all about her parenting experiences, day trips and travel, beautiful letters to her children – and she loves a bit of loungewear…
