In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have young women showing off their natural grey, body image in your thirties, stylish all-black in summer – 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.)
These posts usually go out on the fourth Wednesday of the month but I’m a week behind due to moving and only getting broadband connected a couple of days ago. I can’t believe it’s August already! It may be the traditionally quiet time of the year for reading blogs but that doesn’t mean there isn’t great content out there. Do have a read of these great links – you never know who or what you might discover that makes your day/week/month!

Check out the amazing Instragam account @grombre, where beautiful young women are showing off their natural grey hair – and killing it.
Hayley has written a very honest, thoughtful post about her body image in her thirties: “Happiness is a choice, and I made that choice for myself and my wellbeing.”
I love how some women look amazing in black in the summer – Carelia is wearing all-black and looks cool, chic and sophisticated.
Influencers buying followers and likes has been a hot topic recently: Jane has talked about influencer fraud and how trust is a two-way street (I agree that brands are as much to blame for encouraging it by insisting on high numbers and not looking at authenticity/engagement).
As someone who has just moved house and is currently interiors-obsessed, these 25 decor/DIY projects for renters work just as well for homeowners.
Paola runs and owns her own headscarves business and wrote about why her work should not have to be cheap. (It’s crazy that young, female entrepreneurs have to justify themselves in this way.)
I love reading how people chose their children’s names – Naomi has just had twins which equals a total of five(!) children. That’s a lot of naming.
Anna has requested that people stop asking women if they’re pregnant. Hear, hear.
I am DYING to visit the new, purposely-Instagrammable London cafe Feya… cakes, flowers, pink chairs and marble: what else does an Instagrammer need?!
Michelle discusses how to know whether a brand is ethical (or not).
Quality sleep is one of the best health benefits there is, and Lisa’s tips for how to sleep better are as good for me (someone who has no trouble sleeping) as they are for insomniacs.
Although I’m somewhat tired of seeing changing room pics on Instagram, you rarely see older women featuring them. Older, silver-haired beauties Lisa and Beth have shared their changing room pics and I loved seeing their try-ons.
Mary’s obsession with kimonos is fabulous. So many kimonos, so many ways to wear them.
Liz has four excellent beauty recommendations for Summer 2018: the last one is an absolute must and something I should use more myself.
How refreshing to read a case study of a blogger working with a brand where the latter has complete and utter creative freedom to write whatever they like. It results in 100% authentic, honest blog posts – something more brands should think about commissioning.
And a few Not Dressed As Lamb posts you perhaps missed the first time around:
