In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have swimsuits for soft, curvy bodies (on a soft, curvy body!), the funniest Photoshop “fails”, your outfit as a ghost 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.)
Dare I say I think this may be my best Best of the Blogosphere post to date? Not that I had anything to do with the greatness of these posts, they’ve all been written by some very, very talented content creators. Every month I can never fail to be impressed by how much fantastic stuff gets published on the interwebs for our amusement, inspiration and our thirst for knowledge!
I’ve got examples of the best of British humour. I’ve got top tips for a happy life. I’ve got posts about Instagram to make you stop worrying about Instagram.
And I’ve got beautiful, diverse women coming out of my ears (if that’s not too weird an analogy)!
Do have a read of these great links – you never know who or what you might discover that makes your day/week/month!
