Sunday Summary #37: Blog Love


So, if you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed me mention that I'm off on holiday to the Highlands for a few days at the moment. I haven't missed a single Sunday Summary so far this year, and I didn't want to let a little thing like having no internet stop me from posting this week. I've scheduled this post, so as you read this I'll probably be in a field, wearing wellies and walking the dog - yes, I do lead an extremely glamorous fashion blogger lifestyle, bet you're all jealous. But anyway, as this post is scheduled I won't be able to tell you about what I've been up to this week as it hasn't happened yet. Instead, I thought I would take the opportunity to share a few of my current favourite blogs with you. These are just a couple of my favourite reads, have a look at my Blogroll page for more.

I'm sure we're all aware of my love for black dresses by now, and Steph rocks an all-black outfit like no other. I love how she mixes different fabrics and textures to make a black outfit really stand out - I really need to take a leaf out of her book when getting dressed! As well as inspiring outfit posts, you can also find DIY, travel, art and inspiration posts, among others. Some of my favourite blog posts on Faiiint are Steph's own illustrations, how talented is she?! Plus she has the cutest dog ever, aw!

Always, Alyse
I have been following Alyse online more or less since I started my own blog around two years ago. Her blog covers everything from makeup to food to personal style. I love how Alyse's blog is a bit different to the typical beauty/fashion blog; her posts always seem very well thought out and reflective (although sometimes the gorgeous photography just makes me hungry!). Alyse is another talented artist, and I love seeing her latest sketches.

Uncia and Tigris
Uncia and Tigris is written by Clare Marie and contains posts on beauty, fashion, baking, photography and general lifestyle (I'm sensing a theme here - I like blogs which are a mishmash of everything!). I love Clare's simple but chatty style of writing her posts, and the photography is always really pretty. I especially love the photographs in this post, a bit mystical and magical and kind of spooky, right up my street! Also check out the Weekend Wanderings posts with links to lots of interesting articles and blog posts from around the internet.

The Brantastic Life
I first came across Paula's blog when I met her at a Scottish bloggers meet back in December. I can confirm she is just as lovely and chatty in real life as she is on her blog! Paula's blog mostly features outfit posts, as well as recent purchases, hair posts and life updates. As a fashion student (well, graduate now!) Paula has great style and manages to look much more fashionable than I ever will! Super jealous of her ability to pull off hats! Also rather jealous of her recent holiday posts too.

Sparkly Vodka
Caroline's is another blog which I've been following for a long time. Sparkly Vodka is a fashion and beauty blog containing lots of great outfit posts and makeup reviews. Some of my favourite posts are Caroline's monthly favourites which feature her recent favourite beauty products, as well as recommendations for tv shows, films, books etc. I also love her outfit posts and think we have quite similar style - although I'm not sure I could pull off a floral headband as well as she can!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and found a couple of new blogs to follow! I'll be back home tomorrow so normal posting should resume next week.

What's your favourite blog at the moment?
