14 Unmissable Reads, The Best of the Blogosphere (September 2017)

Not Dressed As Lamb's Best of the Blogosphere links post September 2017

In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have a hilarious GBBO review, semi-permanent eyebrows, vintage Ralph Lauren, a botox and fillers review – 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.)

September usually brings a change in the weather and quite often a shift in all sorts of shenanigans… People get new treatments done (these feature a lot this month), new styles of things to wear and new ways of thinking. It’s all new and fresh and fun and exciting, so I hope you’ll check out these amazing posts I’ve found.

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

Jenny promises that you probably haven’t seen this hairstyle trick before, and she was right: This is a game-changer and I wish my hair would hurry up and GROW so I can copy it.

This is SUCH a great read by Niki: “Despite the fact that I myself am over 40, single and child-free, it doesn’t mean that my friends have similar situations to me, I don’t just mix in some otherworldly non-Mum circle.”

A hilarious and entertaining review of the first episode of the new (Channel 4) Great British Bake Off.

I’ve just discovered the Instagram account of statement earrings brand MilkTooth – their earrings are seriously to die for.

Rachel got semi-permanent eyebrows done and I am so impressed with the results.

This video of dogs made me LOL sooooo much: I’m the brown dog, no question. 😂

I’m totally into my oversized blazers ATM, and I’m seriously crushing on all the ways that Carelia has styled her vintage Ralph Lauren.

“Perfection is overrated” – too true, and it seems that perfect Instagram pictures just aren’t getting the attention they once were.

The best of the Over40Collective this month

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

Michelle had botox and fillers and filmed the entire process: boy does she look good… not a single frozen forehead or pillow face in sight.

Every year Annette wears a traditional dirndl in her native Bavaria for Oktoberfest – and this year she looks the most beautiful she’s ever looked.

Never before had I heard of the Opera LED mask facial that Lisa’s reviewed – it looks super creepy but it seems the effects are amazing.

Michelle has discussed how to set goals and actually achieve them. (I’m great at the first part, but I sure need help with the second.)

Nikki has launched her own range of highly covetable boutique bags.

I’ve never heard of a Makeup Doctor either, but Liz went to see one and was really pleased with the tips and tricks she taught her.

And a few Not Dressed As Lamb posts you perhaps missed first time around:

If you want some slightly more imaginative inspo how to style a Breton top, look no further.

I came up with 6 easy ways to improve your (blog) outfit photos for the post-production stage – a lot can be done after they’re taken!

A reader’s comments hurt my feelings and I wrote about why this was different to “I don’t like your outfit” (which I’m totally indifferent to).

I did a retrospective of my favourite autumn outfits from last year and linked to current AW17 pieces so you could shop/recreate the looks.

    Thank you my lovely for including my post about Makeup Doctor. It really was enlightening. Like MT, I went straight to Milktooth too. Fab-U-lous! xxx

    MILKTOOOTH! Oh how I love thee… You stopped me in my tracks with this account Catherine. Had a proper old browse through their Insta. Boy oh boy I see some serious damage happening to my bank balance with this brand. Thanks for all the lovely reads, as always 😉 xxx

    What a great post! It's very informative. Thanks, Catherine 😉 I feel very honored to be included in your unmissable reads. I'm glad you like the way I styled my plaid blazer, and btw, I have a new one but in grey color. I can't wait to share a look with it on my blog.
