Blogs of Note...

Well what a funny old weekend it has been. I hit 101 blog followers (THANK YOU ALL!) I really appreciate everyone who is following me and my ramblings about fashion. I'm currently at half way point of the dissertation - which is mind numbing. So I thought I would recharge my brain by paying some attention to the blog.

I spent most of my Sunday slumming in my PJ's, writing, checking twitter/facebook/asos/ every half an hour. It is no lie I am slightly addicted to internet shopping (Kristabel at I Want You To Know shares my asos addiction!) And one of my main sources of style inspiration comes from Style Bloggers. I respect them so so much for doing what they do, as we all know image and style can be the main source of criticism by the judgemental..

So I'm sharing some of my favourites. It will be interesting to see whether you guys share the same!

Cats and Rocking Chairs.
A new addiction of mine. The thing that I wanted to look at was the HAIR. Massive hair crush. I wish I had a natural brown with my ombré seems to be a bit more orangey. I love the relaxed feel of her style, casual denim, loose fitting shapes. If you want to acheive the 'i just threw this on and look amazing' style - take note!

I'd like to consider LLYMLRS as my hair twin. Although she may be offended... because mine never looks as good! I believe this girl has that natural style for mixing and matching. And her clothing colour palettes make for very pretty blog content. Have been following her for ages - What I like the most is that she wears predominantly High Street clothes!

Sarah-Leigh's Style Files.
Sarah-Leigh is a versatile blogger. It's not just style, she also takes the loveliest photos! What I like about Sarah is that she takes photo's from her night life and holiday life as well as just day wear! Not many bloggers do this in my opinion!

She's Called Claire.
A blogger on a mission. The lovely Claire has challeneged herself to wear vintage for 365 days! She's up in the double figures now, i've been following from pretty much the beginning and it's so inspiring! I am such a crap vintage shopper! Advice needed...

Probably my favourite of all (and I secretly want to be her!) She's a fashion graduate with KILLER style! and a knack for customising clothes. She also makes her own stuff - with a lot of leopard print love!!

Young Shields.
Such a pretty girl. Major face envy, her style is just quintessentially lovely! I think that's all I need to say!

Gem Fatale.
Gem Fatale is like a beacon of talent! Style blogging - yes. Also nail art, tuesday tips, and for a short while posts dedicated to bitching about items! Hilarious writing style and really engaging! Think she's going to be famous!

I'm sure there are MANY more! I follow a bajillion blogs because you are an inspirational bunch :)

Other Blogs worth following:
Dressing Miss Dolly.
I Want You to Know.
Quite Quaint.
Louder Than Silence.
Fashion Zen.
If you are not in Fashion.
Dreaming Spires and Old Car Tyres.
Ironic Fashion.
London Town's a go go.
Sarah Betty.
Diamond Canopy.
A Daisy Chain Dream.

I'm sure I have forgotten some so stay tuned for a part 2.

(I hope the style bloggers photo's I have used aren't offended by me using them - all credit due)

Ah this is a great post, and thanks for the mention, I really am addicted to Asos! I think we must have spent Sunday in the exact same way (apart from I've spent Thurs, Fri and Sat like that) and there's no doubt it would've been cheaper to leave the house, what with all the shopping I've been doing. Great to see a few faves here, I'm going to check out the ones I'm not following asap!

Well done on reaching 101 Amelia!
Thanks so much for your lovely words! They've really made me smile. I must do another bitchy post soon, thanks for the reminder!
Lots of my faves mentioned here (I openly want to be Strutt!), and will check out the other ladies when I think I've done enough of my dissertation to switch the net back on (about to unplug it so I can concentrate! Drastic measures!) I always love finding new style inspiration, so thanks for doing the donkey work and finding some for me!
