In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have ignoring dress codes, reducing Christmas stress, the effect of Instagram on mental health 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.)
Normally this post goes out on the fourth Wednesday of the month; this month it’s moved to Thursday and hooked up with the #ShareAllLinkUp as I had a LOT on yesterday and the post just wasn’t going to get finished in time (that’s despite me compiling this post all month)! Maybe there are a few new readers here that usually partake in the link up… if so hello, and I hope you like this monthly feature enough to come back and see them again next month: as always there are So. Many. Good. Reads.
Do have a read of these great links – you never know who or what you might discover that makes your day/week/month!
