Good Reads

Looking for more? These are the blogs I love. 

ALifeToStyle – written by Avril Keys, one of my all time favourite bloggers. She is a friend in real life and has been a great support to me since I first started blogging.

NoFearOfFashion – another blogger who has become a friend, Greetje, is warm, funny and slightly eccentric – you never know what she’s going to come up with next

StyleGuile – in a lot of ways Beth’s style is similar to mine sartorially although she is far more gamine than I am. She also writes about running.

LondonBeautyQueen – my favourite beauty blogger, Hayley takes a no-nonsense approach and will always give you her honest opinion as to whether a product is worth purchasing or not.

IWon’tWearSludgeBrown – another northern blogger with a down to earth approach, Donna is a trained colour and style consultant and will often help you to see your body, complexion and personal style more objectively

WhatLizzyLoves – Liz has a very different style to me and loves the romantic, feminine look. Every bit as sweet as she seems, she also has a surprisingly mischievous sense of humour! Despite being born in Lancashire, she lives in Yorkshire which is a glitch that as a native Lancastrian I have to forgive her for. Liz also sells lovely jewellery at her shop LizzyO

NotDressedAsLamb – Catherine is a riot of colour and fierce promoter of the #iwillwearwhatilike hashtag. With an eclectic style, she believes in dressing for attitude not for age.

LadyofStyle – Annette lives in Bavaria and juggles her blog with her busy career so she features a useful balance of work and casual wear.

TheBarefacedChic – Michelle covers musings about life as well as fashion in her blog so each post is a surprise. She is highly skilled at shopping her wardrobe and pulling different looks together from clothes she already has. If you read my blog because you like the inside stories, you’ll enjoy reading Michelle’s too.

Michelle Tyler Blog – Michelle, Australian this time with a bone dry Aussie sense of humour, Michelle has just relocated to the US. 

TheSequinist – Lisa worked on Wall Street and for 20 years scaled the dizzy heights of Finance. She reminds me of the London life I used to live.
