Valentines Blog Love

Hello readers,

I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite blog’s at the moment and share the blog love of Valentines Day!

The Milk Stand– a witty take on parenting from the lady behind Natasha Balie Vintage Clothing Company. A fairly new blog  I read it whilst avidly nodding and chuckling at 99% of what is written, the things she writes about I’ve been there- and about to go through again a second time. Our outlook on parenting seems pretty similar too, so its almost like chatting with a good friend.

I’ll be nominating The Milk Stand for Best New Blog and Best Baby Blog in the 2014 Mad Blog Awards.

Esme and the Laneway– this is my daydreaming “go to” blog. I love the photography, Marianne has a fantastic eye for colours and composition- and of course it helps that she’s over in Australia so its sunny all the time. Seriously, this blog has got me through the winter with its painterly images of vintage dresses, cute places and of course Marianne’s cherubic beautiful face.

The Glamorous Housewife– is a inspirational blog for me. I think the clue is in the title to be honest, having everything from outfit posts, recipes, interior decorating and organisational ideas.  There is a wealth of useful article on Bethany’s site its something I could get lost in for hours.

What are your favourite blogs at the moment?

    Great choices, I love Natasha Bailie’s parenting blog, as a mother of two I definitely relate to it.
