Blog Milestones and Favourite Blogs

Hello everyone! So today's post is to celebrate the fact that Saturday marked three months since I first started this blog. That's already a quarter of a year and I can't believe that I've actually kept this going consistently for that long. Obviously in the grand scheme of blogging things, three months isn't very long at all, but when I wrote my first post I was honestly expecting to have given up after a couple of weeks and just let the blog melt away into the depths of cyberspace...

I also mentioned in my last post that I reached 100 Bloglovin followers recently- something I really didn't expect to happen quite so soon. Thank you to everyone who comes back to read my posts, whether you follow me on Bloglovin, Google+ or just happen to click on my links on Twitter. It's the thing that keeps me going with this blog, knowing that people out there really do read it and leave lovely comments!

I've been reading two or three blogs for a few years, blogs that I'd just happened to stumble upon, but since getting into blogging I've found so many more and I love spending an hour or two reading through my Bloglovin feed and catching up with what everyone has been doing. It's also great to discover new blogs and I always enjoy reading posts dedicated to blogs or posts that other people have enjoyed and want to share. So, to celebrate three months of blogging and 100 followers, I'm going to share my own favourites here!

I think I came across Mathilde's blog thanks to a Twitter chat and I'm really glad I did. Her blog is a beautiful representation of her life in Lyon with lovely photography and plenty of inspiring recipes. Mathilde writes in both French and English and it's the perfect way for me to keep using my understanding of French! The food posts are what I love best on this blog- everything sounds so fresh and healthy and the blog definitely lives up to its name and inspires me.

Effortlessly Excessive
I've been following Kirsty's blog for a couple of months now and her posts are always interesting. She's currently living in Finland and I love hearing her comparison of daily life in the UK and Finland- it's the little things like where the nearest M&S is! This is one of those blogs that really is varied- recent posts have included things about living in Finland, make up posts and a sesame seed disaster. There never seems to be any pretence with this blog, it's got a really genuine feel of exactly what Kirsty is like and that makes it stand out a lot.

Lisette's blog is beautifully simple and having it appear in my bloglovin feed is instantly calming. Her posts are usually short and sweet and always accompanied by stunning photos. Her recipes are healthy and so inspiring- as well as being achievable! Lisette's blog is an appreciation of all the little things in life and it always makes me see the best in things.

Oh Hey Blog
I found Megan's blog through another blogger's favourites post, and I'm so glad I did. Megan is an Australian girl currently living in France and her blog features some amazing photos of French life and scenery. I'm enjoying reading her stories of her time in Paris and the little snippets that make this much more than just a generic Paris blog. You'll have to go read some posts to see what I mean!

Joelle's blog is like nothing I've ever read before. She's a student in Aberdeen and her posts cover fashion and lifestyle in a wonderfully humorous way. Joelle comes across very genuine and her posts sum up a very realistic picture of student life. I've especially enjoyed her honest version of 'Get Ready With Me', and 'How to Pose Like a Blogger.' Her posts are always varied and a delight to come across in my feed.

I hope you find some new favourites here, or perhaps you're already a fan of some of these ladies? Once again thanks to everyone who's been reading my posts- here's to many more months (and years?!) of blogging to come!



  1. Joelle's 'how to pose like a blogger' post is hilarious! Sounds like we started about the same time, though you have a lot more posts than me. Not that that matters lol. I did a '3 months of blogging' post last month if you fancy a look: http://amynmore.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/experiences-from-3-months-of-blogging.html


  2. I've just started blogging and am always on the lookout for new blogs to follow, I'll definitely look at these ones as the majority seem right up my street :)
