More Blogger Friends

I did a post fairly recently (see it here) highlighting the bloggers who pop over here on a regular basis and leave me lovely comments.  It's always so nice to read them.  It makes you feel loved.  Or at least like you're getting a big squashy cyber hug!  Anyway there are a few more that visit me regularly who I'm always so grateful to see...kind of like a mate that pops over for a quick cup of tea, so I thought I'd share them with you so you can head on over and check out their beautiful blogs.
 
So to get stuck into it...
 
Ok you just have to go over and visit Stephanie's blog.  Trust  me, you'll be so glad you did.  She is absolutely hysterical (in a good way!) and is a really good writer.  She is a nail and  makeup artist, so you will find lots of great posts on makeup and beauty products, but you will also see a bit of food, shopping hauls and what is generally going on in her life.  She is very driven and lately has been aiming to stick to her healthy eating goals, which fortunately (or unfortunately for me) she has been achieving very well.  I actually was a little disappointed that she did achieve her goals because she did promise that if she didn't she was going to do a vlog of herself doing a workout to a Richard Simmons tape....which I was dying to see because I knew I'd be in stitches ....(is this selfish of me?!?)  She also does the odd vlog and these are highly entertaining...that great sense of humour again.  Anyway, I always am left with a smile after reading her blog, and even have a good laugh at the witty comments she leaves on mine.  She's good value.  Do go on over and say hello!
 
Helen is from Scotland and she has her own fashion and style blog which has got quite a following.  She puts together some fantastic outfits and pulls off some really unique looks.  She's also studying a masters course, as well as blogging, which I have no idea how she manages both!  Hats off to her!  I really love the outfits she comes up with because they are so 'wearable'...and by this I mean that they are not a combination of things that you would never wear (ie things that you would wear only if you were strutting your stuff on the catwalk and have legs up to your armpits).  She puts together lovely outfits that are within your comfort zone but are still very unique.  She will also do the odd different post too, sharing a week in photos or reviewing other items, such as jewellery, and lately she's done a couple of great posts on some monthly food boxes she's been receiving in the mail.  Nom nom nom!!
 
I really like Emma's blog because it is one of those really honest and open blogs that shares a life with you.  A lifestyle blog Emma will also write a little about beauty, makeup and fashion.  She also shares what she gets up to with her little girl who looks absolutely adorable.  Emma has also been open about how she suffers from social anxiety, which I think is very brave of her to admit.  It has been great to read a post here and there where she takes steps to tackle it, which I greatly admire.  Suffering from panic attacks myself I know how difficult these sorts of issues can be.  This blog is one those that is a little like a diary at times, which makes you feel quite privileged to be allowed to share in her life. 
 
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these blogs and go over and have a look.  Please let me know of any great ones that you read that are worth a look, it's always great to find a new blog!

  3. AMBER THIS IS SO SWEET! I'm so glad that we've started talking. I totally agree that finding a comment-blog-reading-friend is just as good as someone you'd have a chat with over tea (for me, always coffee first!!). I am so touched by your awesome write-up about me. I can't thank you enough for thinking to include me in this! Richard Simmons! I know you were cheering it on. I almost feel like a deep part of my soul wanted to fail to see how I would work around that punishment! But, for the most part I'm very happy I didn't have to do it!! I absolutely agree, hats off to Helen at Electric Sunrise!! Masters degree AND BLOGGING? I can barely manage to get up in the morning. And I had never seen Emma's site, and always love to see a makeup/beauty/lifestyle blogger!! I'm so happy you did this, and I'm popping over to both Helen and Emma's blog, perhaps I'll make a new blogging-friend too! You are an amazing ball of sunshine and I'm thankful to have "met" you!!

    MUCH LOVE!!

    1. My pleasure Stephanie. You keep me entertained and smiling, even when the kids are driving me nuts!! One day, when I finally am able to travel, I'll come to America and look you up...catch up over a coffee! (I'll have tea) Do keep up the vlogging...love them. And maybe one day I'll get to see you working out to Richard Simmons.... (who I actually remember from the TV...I'm that old!) hahaha!!
