In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have supermodels on ageing, changing room horrors, the trouble with Instagram and more!
[Reading time: 2 mins – not including time spent down any internet rabbit holes…!]
(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.)
The first Best of the Blogosphere this year! The first one of the decade! It’ll be interesting to see where blog and social media content takes us in the next 10 years… I’m sure we couldn’t have predicted the rise of the monster that is Instagram or the age of the influencer in 2010.
Although I do “bend the rules” a little by featuring links from social media platforms and other non-blogging sites in this series, the principle is the same: to appear here it has to be insightful, interesting, funny, helpful, mindblowing and/or just downright brilliant.
I seem to have quite a few beauty-related links this month, as well as ones about self-esteem. As always let’s be kind to ourselves and to others, and laugh at those enormous sealions lounging about on a sinking sailboat while we’re doing it 😉
Do have a read of these great links – you never know who or what you might discover that makes your day/week/month!

“I’m hoping that I can be content with just being me.” Sharon opens up about her realisation that she is enough and how she’s learning to let go.
Do you want to see two gargantuan sea lions who climbed atop a small sailboat? Here you go.
At last, somebody said it: Kimberly talks about the trouble with Instagram, and why it’s just a snack compared to a blog being the main meal.
I’ve just discovered stunning clothing brand Needle & Thread who make vintage-style, ethereal, ruffled and embellished dresses and gowns – their dresses make me want to get married again so I can wear one.
Paulina Porizkova was always one of my favourite 80s/90s supermodels, and now I love her even more after she wrote very honestly and openly about ageing. (It was especially poignant considering she recently lost her estranged husband.)
Victoria Emes (formerly The Crafty Fox) bemoans the horror that is changing rooms in her own unique, self-deprecating style.
Lex’s How Do I Look series is all about skin positivity and features interviews with people with various skin conditions. It’s truly brilliant.
Michelle writes very passionately about whether the 2010s was the decade that sustainable fashion went mainstream – and where it goes from here.
Do you make visitors to your home remove their shoes? Amber ponders.
Ever wondered about injectables? Leah had quite a few procedures done (not her lips as hers are naturally full) and I must say the results are pretty fabulous.
Although I can’t stand the tabloids’ treatment of the Duchess of Sussex, I do find this Prince George parody account particularly amusing when it comes to his internal monologue about Aunt Meghan.
Having had a failed (first) marriage myself, I can identify with Kate’s beautifully written account of finding hope and peace in the ashes of a failed marriage.
Krystal lists her eight favourite hotels in NYC – don’t miss her stunning photos taken inside The Plaza.
