What blogs do you read? As with the say “it’s an app for that” there seems to be a blog for everything too. So in the online jungle of various of blogs, here are the top ten to check out!
Without further ado…
The first blog, that in fact got me into blogging, is Babyccino Blog. Although the website has turned into a kids shopping portal of lately, the blog is still as relevant as ever. The Babyccino team never fail to inspire and keep all parents in the loop on tots trend and activities. I’ve met Courtney a few times and can only conclude that the success of the three girls running it is down to the fact that they are genuinely nice -and inspiring.
2. Tangloppan – Fresh breath from the Norwegian Sea
One blog I keep returning too, only because it’s so refreshing in a native Scandinavian way, is tangloppan.blogspot.co.uk The blogger lives on a tiny island in the Norwegian Sea, with her husband and three young children. There’s storms and midnight sun, there’s that delightful Norwegian wit and the ultimate dream of a childhood spent outdoors.
3. Visual Therapy Blog – Aesthetically (way beyond) pleasing
For my cravings, you know… when I’m not busy being a mum, and I’m not talking about cravings as in chocolate, I turn to a blog appropriately called visual-therapy.com/blog I truly enjoy the wonderful mix of photography and design. And although a lot of luxury brands are being featured, reading and dreaming is for free.
4. Petit Coquette – Lingerie heaven
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune but it needs to have a good fit -and little beats that feeling when wearing great lingerie. Petit Coquette Blog will keep you in the loop on bra fitting, new lingerie collections and just in time for the holiday season; lots of beautiful swim and beachwear.
5. Scandinavian Retreat – Escaping busy city life
Can you imagine holidaying (or living!) in a design bolt hole surrounded by fresh air, unspoilt nature and clean water? Well, you’ll get all the inspiration you’ll need through Nicky and her blog Scandinavian Retreat There’s several Nordic home, design and architecture blogs -but to me, this is the one.
6. Smudgetikka – Best children’s Fashion blog
Not only the most supportive blogger I’ve met but also the number one children’s fashion blog, is smudgetikka.
