This Year's Loves

Very much inspired by Suzie, I decided to do a little roundup of my favourite reads of 2013. Think of it as a 'This Week's Loves' for the whole of the year. However, my list started to get just a little but lengthy, so I ended up creating a separate blog roll page in order to fit all my favourites in. Go and take a look here, there's some good ones!

To keep it short and sweet, here's a snapshot of some of my favourite posts & bloggers from the past 12 months.

Briar Rose
If I had to pick a favourite post (or posts), it would definitely me Megan's. I absolutely loved following her wedding planning. If you haven't already, you have to go and take a look at her wedding dress, absolutely beautiful.

Nouvelle Daily
This summer I started writing a posts for Nouvelle Daily. Kate puts in so much hard work and it's definitely worth a read. Really, I'm not just saying that.

Wonderful You
I still stand by the statement I made few months back. Megan is definitely one of the nicest bloggers I've come across. Fantastic outfits and fantastic hair, what more could you want really?

Hannah Maggs
If there's on you tuber I've kept up with the past few months, it's Hannah. I've loved watching her weekly pregnancy updates, and wish you all the luck for when your baby boy is born.

Lisette Loves
A quick scroll through Lisette's blog, and you'll soon realise there's always something to be thankful for. When I think of her blog, the quote "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn off the light." comes to mind. Good old Albus and good old Lisette.

You can see all my favourites here. Now here's to 2014 and even more blog reading.

Another year, another wardrobe.

I'm not usually one for making a big deal about the New Year. I'm not a fan of resolutions or big NYE nights out. If there's one thing I do love though, it's a good yearly round up.

 I spent a good while scrolling, and picked a few of my favourite outfits from the past 12 months. Ideally I'd like to have included my Christmas party/day outfits, but the chances of getting those photographed before the end of the year is highly unlikely. Have you looked out of the window this morning?

2013 was the year of the smock dress, tartan print everything and numerous ASOS orders. I think personal favourites include the elephant & paisley smock dresses and my checked coat. I also love the first denim jacket, but this post made me realise I've not even worn it since March. I'll be digging that out once the weather perks up a little. Here's hoping that smock dresses stick around for 2014, I definitely have enough to last me another year.
