Midweek Reads

midweek readsHappy hump day! As a little interlude to the regular blogging week I wanted to include a little round up of posts I’ve been loving this week:

Do you have to be beautiful to be a successful beauty blogger? – London Beauty Queen

Tales of an Ugly Beauty Blogger – Zoe London

Both really well written posts on a topic close to my heart that I’ve been pondering for a while. I’ve been jotting down my own thoughts on it too, but never quite got close enough to hitting publish. So until I manage to properly form my own words on the topic, head over and have a read of these two posts. Very much food for thought, whatever your view on it is.

30 Signs You’re No Longer a Backpacker – The Travel Hack

There are actually a whole host of posts from The Travel Hack that I’ve been loving this week. I’m very excited about an upcoming trip to San Francisco so was having a browse of her blog for tips and recomendations of places to see/things to do in the city and came across this one in particular. The thing that stood out to me is that I don’t think I’ve ever been a back packer (no shock to anyone who knows me…) but this post made me smile as it basically describes precisely how I feel about travel…!

10 Happy Things – Sailboat

I love this type of post. So simple but also so personal and I love that. I love to see the little things that are making people happy. This inspires me to do something similar myself. Jennie’s blog is one of my all time favourites to read, so have a good roam around beyond this post (her photos are gorgeous).

25 Poses for Lifestyle Bloggers & 4 Tips to Feel More Comfortable infront of the Camera – Venus Trapped in Mars

This is a post I stumbled across when browsing the popular section of bloglovin’ and it’s fab. How many posts are there out there about how to take good beauty blog photos?! Loads. How many for lifestyle or fashion photos – nowhere near as many. It seems like it’s some sort of secret that once you’re on to it you can’t share and for those that don’t quite have it *raises hand* it’s the eternal quest to make your photos look close to that sort of level of lovely. I’ve never quite managed it, so this post is fab. Am now of course following the blog for more fabulous content!
