Midweek Reads

midweek reads 2

Second instalment of midweek reads for you – and your reading pleasure! Well, at least I hope so at least. A few things I’ve been enjoying this week:

Bumpkin Betty is the newest addition to my bloglovin’ reading list and I spent a good couple of hours having a read when I first came across Jaclyn’s blog. I’ve been mostly enjoying her honesty & gorgeous photos. Have especially enjoyed reading the post about the ‘Changing Face of Blogging’ as it’s a topic I have pondered a lot myself recently.

Sali Hughes Pretty Honest has been the latest not-online addition to my reading list. It really is a fab book – if you want a no-nonsense guide to what actually works in beauty then this is one for you. Also love that the book itself is very coffee-table (read: instagram) friendly. But the contents are what it’s all about – I was giggling just reading a few snippets when it first arrived, never mind when I sat down to give it a proper read.

I’ve long been a lover of magazines – but over recent years and probably mostly down to an urge to de-clutter I’ve found myself buying them less and less. Opting for online content or at least iPad subscriptions over the paper versions. But I’ve really enjoyed having a good old fashioned flick through the new Hello! Fashion Monthly magazine. With Olivia Palermo on the front, who I basically want to kidnap and make my stylist (or at least steal her wardrobe..and hairdresser) it’s a good read over a cuppa and a biscuit. There’s also a big old section dedicated to Poppy Delevinge – my other style/hair crush.

Back on the blog love front I’ve been really enjoying reading posts about fellow blogger’s skincare routines. Especially Makeup Savvy’s Skincare Faves – as it contains a lot of products I’ve tried & loved. After my skin has been fairly decent all Summer, it has gone a bit bezerk with the changing seasons. So I had a bit of an overhaul of my own skincare stash this weekend, paired the products right back and things are already improving.

What reads have you been loving – on and off-line this week?
