In my Best of the Blogosphere this month I have the most adorable animal sanctuary, husbands doing makeup, statement winter coats as well as a Caribbean photo diary – and more!
I’ve been drawn to two weather extremes this month: cold weather posts with gorgeous winter outfits as well as those that look towards summer, sunshine and all things hot weather (Barbados, Miami and Florida each get a star turn). What can I say – I am soooooo looking forward to warmer weather and more daylight, but I don’t want to give up all those glorious winter coats anytime soon.
Did I tell you I always want my cake and to get to eat it…?! Maybe I’ve been overdoing it on the cake just a BIT too much ; -P

If you’re not following Alyssa’s Animal Sanctuary on Instagram (or here on TikTok) then I recommend you do it NOW… I’ve never seen such a joyful parade of rescued farm animals (every single one has a name) having the time of their lives. If you even vaguely like animals then you’ll LOVE their going-to-bed routine.
Charlotte’s fabulous post about how all bodies are good bodies discusses how she wishes she’d seen more diverse bodies when she was growing up.
I normally associate sky blue with summer outfits, but Liz has proved it looks wonderful in cold weather, especially with winter white.
Like Marisa Tomei last month, Brooke Shields is sharing her skincare and natural makeup routine on Vogue – yet another example of an older woman ageing beautifully without resorting to pillow-face (just my preference). Plus, EYEBROWS. Hers are still the best ever.
Keiko’s pink and green living room makeover in her Florida home is allSORTS of delicious.
More warm weather deliciousness… Stella went to Miami with her girlfriends and posted 5 exciting things to do on your Miami vacation. I may not be going there anytime soon, but a girl can dream.
If you haven’t followed James Blunt on Twitter, I can thoroughly recommend it (I’m 100% serious). The most self-deprecating man out there, his comebacks are the stuff of legend. His bio: “Cockney rhyming slang for the good stuff*; proof that one song is all you need.” The man needs to be a standup comedian.
*if you know, you know…
I’m still crushing on some winter outfits, like Anna’s faux fur animal print coat that she wore with camo co-ords (that look like a smart onesie). Genius styling.
Even more sunshine(!): Emma recently went to Barbados and published a Barbados photo diary – I’m crying into my tea [at the time of writing] near a rain-soaked window looking at these.
As well as this beautiful winter photo shoot, where Daniella is wearing a very classic, winter-neutrals outfit and discusses style over fashion.
It’s old school YouTube, but Emma made a new version of her husband doing her makeup… her absolutely losing her composure halfway through is SO entertaining.
The going-since-the-80s Australian soap Neighbours has pretty much been cancelled and Amber is NOT happy about it.
I loved Laura’s thoughts on how getting fit can change your life – I needed to be reminded of this.
And a couple of Not Dressed As Lamb posts you perhaps missed first time around:
Stay safe XOXO
