This week has been a bit of a busy one and it’s only now (late on a Saturday afternoon) that I’ve managed to sit down and put this wee round up together. With an adventure to the New Forest with Jo Malone, our first outing to view wedding venues (which felt very grown up) and hosting an event with Amazon (thank you so much if you came)- it’s been pretty non stop but extremely exciting nonetheless! Now, on to the real interesting stuff…
One blog I’ve been loving recently (for the photography as much as the beautiful words) is In My Sunday Best by the beautiful Sade. I’ve read her blog for a long time now, but after falling a little in love with her Insta Stories (which really highlight how much of a shamble mine can be) I’ve been visiting even more regularly- and definitely recommend you bookmark her too. On top of that, there are also a couple of Vogue reads I’ve been loving this week including Claire of Violet’s favourite recipes (very in tune with the Bake Off being back) and the breathtaking wedding of Pernille Teisbaek which is every bit as stunning as you might imagine and has seriously inspired some planning.
The Blog Post:
Every time I think I couldn’t be prouder, or more blown away by my friend Lauren she goes and does it again. This week she published a raw, heartbreaking and beyond inspiring post about her battle and overcoming of chemo during her cancer treatment. It’s very rare to read such a candid, unadulterated and absolute document of anyone’s cancer journey and following Lauren along with hers has been the taboo-breaker and total light that has the power to do so much good in times of so much difficulty. She’s an absolute trooper, and someone I have endless respect and admiration for- and highly recommend checking out her site and Instagram too.
If you missed yesterday’s post I’ve popped together a pretty substantial list of some of my ultimate Desert Island Disc favourites (late to the party? Me? Never)! I also spotted this piece over on Girl Boss about podcasts designed to help you relax, incase you struggle to switch off like me too.
In terms of shiny newness on YouTube I got a couple of golden goodies to spoil you with! Firstly my gorgeous pal Lindsey has just joined with some wickedly brilliant weekly vlogs- as well as fellow Mancunian babe Alice who is diving straight in with fashion vids (which are just as beautiful as her blog content too). I also loved watching Anna’s video on one year as The Anna Edit and Estée’s important and refreshing video on Brexit.
