Issue 10 #InTheSpotlight – the top 10!

When we launched #InTheSpotlight for issue 10, we were overwhelmed with the sheer amount of amazing entries we had.

Over 100 of you (113 to be exact!) sent us your lovely blog links, and we put aside some time over the past couple of weeks to read through each and every one.

Picking a top 10 wasn’t easy – you guys are all just too good!

In the end, we decided to go for the blogs we found ourselves naturally returning to – the ones that made us hungry for more content.

Well done to everyone who entered themselves; sometimes it feels strange nominating your own blog for something but we’re really glad you did!

Below are our 10 favourite blogs – three of which will be featured in issue 10 of the magazine.

Have a read of them, comment below with your favourites of the 10 and don’t forget to tweet us your thoughts, too!

  1. The mile long bookshelf

We’re always asked about featuring more book bloggers within the magazine, and so we were excited to find Amber’s blog because her reviews are so easy to read and give such good recommendations.

  1. Strawberry Dream

Pictures are what really draw us into a blog and Courtney’s homepage is full of them – everything is big, bright and beautiful, making it all the more tempting to spend our lunch breaks scrolling through her posts.

  1. Healthy Twenties

The cool-toned palette of Tamsyn-Elizabeth’s blog instantly makes us feel calm and we love her mix of lifestyle, travel and food posts.

  1. Emma Inks

Emma Inks blog

So many blogs stick to a white theme, we find Emma’s darker palette refreshing and enjoy the variation in her content – from hot yoga classes to Berlin outfit posts.

  1. Lil’ Black Boots

We were drawn to the clean design of Katie’s blog and really enjoy the mixture of fashion, beauty and lifestyle posts that she creates.

  1. A Wandering Blog

Travel blogs have the power to transport you to places you could never visit yourself and we love browsing through Ciara’s striking photos and travel stories.

  1. Arora Appleby

Sometimes comedy can get lost in translation when it comes to writing blog posts but Arora’s come across brilliantly and has us wanting more.

  1. Shell Shocked Mummy

Laverne talks about, and shares, difficult content on her blog and we love how open and honest she is about the things she has experienced and the impact they have had on her.

  1. Girl Goes To

Travel, food and drink – what more could you want?! Becky’s blog is the perfect mix of both and we’ve really enjoyed reading about all of her past adventures.

I really enjoyed arora Appleby’s blog message me smile, lovely insight to her world.

I loved a girl goes to thought it was natural and made me want to travel. Good insight and flavour of places visited and mentioned.
