15 Unmissable Reads, The Best of the Blogosphere (October 2017)

Not Dressed As Lamb's The Best of the Blogosphere (October 2017)

In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have midsize gals in sequinned dresses, a stunning Halloween makeup, positive thoughts on turning 50, tax deductible manicures - and more!

(In case you've not seen these posts before my Unmissable Reads are a monthly round-up of things I've seen, watched and liked in the blogosphere that I'm sure you'll love too.)

SO much great stuff to read (yet again) this month. Everyone is just starting to break out the sequins and party wear and happy festive vibes... summer may be over but that doesn't mean we can't embrace the new season!

Do have a read of these great links - you never know who or what you might discover that makes your day/week/month!
