13 Unmissable Reads, the Best of the Blogosphere (March 2018)

Not Dressed As Lamb | The Best of the Blogosphere (March 2018)

In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have sportswear for plus size women, the ultimate in hair goals, orange lipstick, switching Instagram for reading 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.)

There’s no doubt spring is making me happier – let’s hope the snow is well behind us in the UK and we get to enjoy all these spring-inspired outfits and posts without thinking But it’s still the dead of winter over here…!!

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

Callie is partnering with Nike to promote sportswear for plus size women and I applaud the way she addresses the criticism she received as a result: “How exactly do people get fit if they don’t have clothes to work out in?”

Daniella’s style is tomboyish and utterly unique so when she writes about the best places to buy good knitwear, denim and loafers I sit up and take notice.

As someone who’s in the process of selling her home, this post was just what I needed: how to turn your least favourite room into your favourite room.

Annette’s classy outfit proves that wide leg trousers really can work for petite frames.

How to stop orange lipstick (which I love) making your teeth look yellow (which I don’t love).

Positivity breeds positivity and I’m certainly a huge believer that you get back what you put out” – Carly chose happiness over success and is definitely much happier for it.

This truly IS the perfect transitional season dress (the colours are to die for)!!

Keiko’s new hair colour (and recent cut) is the ultimate in hair goals.

One of the classiest independent British clothing brands is celebrating its fifth birthday and Lisa has featured herself wearing some of their best pieces (I love this brand too).

Brightly-coloured glasses can be hard to wear but Liz has explained how to choose coloured frames (and looks amazing in her red ones).

I ADORE yellow raincoats so no wonder I’m in love with Jane’s preppy spring look.

Anne gave up Instagram (temporarily) for reading more and highly recommends it for your general well-being.

Amena reviewed a face mask I’ve been curious about for a while: the Aztec Bentonite Indian Clay Face mask (plus she’s just entertaining to watch anyway).

    You ROCK Catherine! Seriously!! I am so happy you enjoyed my Instagram detox post. I highly suggest giving it up for a month if one feels they’re getting too addicted–like I was. And now, because of that little month off of the social media app, I don’t visit nor care about it nearly as much. It’s such a relief! The numbers game of Instagram tends to drive me insane!

    Any thank you so much! You have totally boosted my readership, so I am very grateful.

    Now on to some reading for me!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

      Ann I’m really pleased it’s given your visits a boost!! I’ve barely been on social for the last month or so so it half feels like a detox, but my trouble is I forget to go back to it. I need to find a happy medium! x

    Thanks for the share Catherine! I have been trying to dig myself out from beneath all the paper that tax season brings me (my day job as a CPA) and that yellow rain coat was so fun to shoot.
