14 Unmissable Reads – The Best of the Blogosphere (June 2017)

Not Dressed As Lamb's Best of the Blogosphere June 2017

In the Best of the Blogosphere this month I have midlife women in swimwear 👌, the happiest skirt in the world, eliminating menopausal symptoms, a solution for breaking bad habits – 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.)

Summer really is in full swing and I’m only too happy to share some of the amazing things I’ve seen in the blogosphere lately: I know we don’t necessarily want to spend all our time indoors on tablets, phones and laptops but hopefully this little list will keep you interested in the amazing posts that bloggers are still producing all year round.

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

Proving just how wonderful all white with a few blasts* of colour can look, Kimberly looks especially summer fresh in white with turquoise and red.

Like me, Amber got sick of being told who to vote for in the General Election and wrote why she nearly left Twitter because of it.

We need to see MORE midlife women wearing swimwear and underwear on the internet to show it’s perfectly normal to do so (and that we come in many different shapes and sizes) – Lisa is rocking this two piece beautifully.

This is a great post about the myth of the blogger clique – as a member of a group that could be seen as a clique I want others to know we are NOT like Mean Girls in the slightest and love meeting other bloggers.

The simple way to break a bad habit? Get through the cheesiness and you’ll see that this video tells you it’s all down to one simple word, and it makes perfect sense.

Stop valuing yourself based on likes and follows and focus on quality content and integrity – expertly put (as always) by Vicki.

We all need to think about that before we bitch and be a bit more like the friendly drunk girl in the loos.” Well said, Katie.

“Unlike Facebook and Instagram, which have always banned content and have never positioned themselves as platforms for free speech, Twitter has made an ideology out of protecting its most objectionable users.” A VERY interesting insight on Twitter’s trolling and harassment problem.

*blast of colour = our new phrase for the overused “pop” of colour

The best of the Over40Collective this month

This is a section where I share the best post from each member of the O40Co. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

The happiest skirt in the world? Well when it’s got #plantsonpink all over it, Liz, it definitely is.

Michelle has explained how she eliminated her menopausal symptoms – it’s a seriously excellent read.

As an ex-banker Lisa’s relationship with the trouser suit is complicated, but oh BOY does she wear this 70s-inspired one well.

Michelle’s started doing weekly vlogs and they are SO entertaining… She’s talking minions, Canterbury Tales and how she didn’t drown in her first one.

Nikki is our resident retail sales expert and shares her top summer sales picks here.

Another expert: Annette knows exactly how to do office chic, and especially how to style a shirt dress in summer.
