Blogs I Love

I used to read blogs all the time. But I have to admit that over the last year it's something that I do less and less. With writing my own blog and university I don't often have the time to sit down and read all the new blogs posts on my BlogLovin' feed. Although there are still a few that I click through in my bed before I get up or before I go to sleep. It's been a while since I took the time to share some blogs that I love. I have a blog roll where you can see some of my favourite blogs but it's very rare that I actually remember to add new blogs to the list. So today I'm going to share 3 blogs that I've really been loving recently. I also had the chance to meet two out of the three of these bloggers at the #scotblogmeet event and they were both such lovely girls!

I first discovered Nicole's blog when she started participating in our book club, Sassy Books, when we launched it at the end of May. Since then, I've been very impressed with the content she produces. Not only is her writing very nice and personal but she also takes lovely photos. The posts on Life In Ginger are varied but I love how she writes blog posts about sensitive topics that are really well informed and non judgemental. She recently wrote a blog post about how social media effects the way that we interact in public. I found it to be really interesting and thought provoking. It was called Live Now, Instagram Later and it's definitely worth a read. If getting philosophical isn't your thing then Nicole also writes a lot of great posts about books, Scotland and generally chitty chatty life posts!


After Mimmi had commented on my blog a few times I checked out her blog and was very impressed with her posts. Mimmi is originally from Sweden but is living in Glasgow whilst studying English literature at university there. She blogs a lot about different places in Scotland and it makes me feel very proud to live in such a wonderful country. She recently blogged about her trip to the Isle of Skye. It's not somewhere I've ever visited unfortunately but reading Mimmi's blog post really made me want to go. We met at Scot Blog Meet and went for dinner together which you may remember from my review of Las Iguanas Glasgow! But Mimmi also writes reviews of restaurants and cafes so her blog is one I'll visit the next time I'm planning a trip to Glasgow and need some inspiration for where to eat! Mimmi is taking a blogging break at the moment whilst she gets wifi sorted in her new flat and adjusts to being back at uni but there are plenty of blog posts for you to read in the meantime!


I've been reading Nimble Note for quite a while as I follow Kathryn on Twitter but it wasn't until I sat down to write this blog post that I realised that I actually don't properly follow the blog on BlogLovin'. Ooops! I feel like this happens to me all the time and I never notice just because I've gotten out of the loop of using BlogLovin' to read blogs! Anyway! Kathryn is just starting university which is a very exciting time so I'm really looking forward to reading about her experiences on her blog! Nimble Note is a very mixed blog with lots of varied content but I particularly enjoy the food posts. I'm not a vegetarian but I eat a few meat free meals a week so I'm always looking for new inspirations. Kathryn also recently made the switch to being vegan which I find very impressive, I don't know if I'd have the willpower to do that in all honesty! I'm actually mildy lactose intolerant so I don't eat a lot of dairy and I certainly don't use milk. But I recently read her Creamy Banana Porridge recipe which uses almond milk instead and it looks lovely so I'm going to give it a try!

So those are some blogs I've been loving recently. I really urge you to give them a read as I'm sure you'd find something that interests you!
